Try These Heatless Styles Using Your Hair Clip ins!

Let’s Talk about Clip-ins

Can we all agree that clip-ins are a gift from above? They allow us to add length, volume, and thickness at a snap to the roots. So basically let's all give a big “yes,” to good clip ins and an even bigger yes to the styles we create with them! Aren’t these hair savers a joy? This device comes in many textures, lengths and of course colors for when you want to experiment. Overall, it is an inclusive piece of haircare to the beauty industry. But, what happens when you want to give your hair a break from the heat and the bone straight styles that you love so much? Or maybe you are at a loss on what to do next because you have grown bored with the usual hairstyle. The answer here is to go heatless. You can still achieve signature styles like curls, waves and everything in between without using your coveted flat iron or curling wand. It takes a little learning, but the outcome becomes simple even after the first go.

Keeping the Heat Minimal

If you wear heat styled hair do’s, then this article is just for you! Sometimes change is good, and when it comes to the health of your hair, this is something that you may want to consider. Sure, using clip-ins helps you to tone down on your heat use, but have you ever considered eliminating the heat tools altogether? Using heat on your hair to achieve hairstyles at a constant rate does not only damage your hair over time but can damage and thin out your clip in extensions as well. Listen, you spend so much money on making sure that you have the top of the line hair to wear so why not preserve it for as long as you can? Do not let the thought of not knowing how to achieve these styles without heat make you run away from trying it, at least once. Train yourself day by day to eventually let go of your hot styling tools and begin to look for manual tools that give you the same effect. Below, we will explore the many options, techniques, and products to help you get those bouncy curls and fluffy waves that you love so much! So grab your notebook, take some notes and get into this!

So, How do I Achieve a Functional Style with No Heat?

Flexi rods, perm rods, Bantu knots and a twisted curl is all you need to hear depending on the texture of clip-ins that you have. Achieving a great style not only starts with the technique but the products that you choose to use. You can achieve so many styles without heat, including an updo or a method that goes down your back! No matter what you try, give it a chance at least once. You may surprise yourself and use less heat or no heat more often on your clip ins.

Bouncy Barrel Curls

In this first style, let’s explore some bouncy curls! If you are a lover of big body curls, you will love this because it will last long after you have taken those rollers out! Plus you will only need a few items such as:
  • Barrel rollers
  • Small duck clips
  • A rat tail comb
  • A paddle or wig brush
  • Light serum
  • Satin scarf or bonnet
Before you start to place your rollers randomly, this style is all about execution. Which means that where you put your rollers is where you will get the most volume and bounce, so be strategic. To get the best results, part your hair is quads, starting from ear to ear and then from your forehead to the nape of your neck. Next, make sure that your hair gets thoroughly detangled by using the paddle brush from the tip of your hair to the root. Be gentle! You do not want to snag your clip-ins or damage them or your natural hair. Once you have detangled, now is the time grab your barrel rollers. Start by working from the crown of your head and out so that you have enough space to place your last few. To get your technique down for rolling each barrel use the following steps below:

Step 1:

Take a section of hair, about the length of your index finger and stretch it upward.

Step 2:

Take a light hair serum, such as Chi and lightly put a dime sized amount of it on that section.

Step 3:

Brush in the product using your paddle brush to ensure that it even distribution occurs along the length of hair. For extra sleekness, use your rat tail comb to get those ends together!

Step 4:

Take your roller and begin to roll it down the weft of hair and secure it by using your duck clip at the root of your hair. Once you have it down the first time, repeat until your entire head becomes covered! The key here is to allow the rollers to sit for a few hours or overnight. To make sure that they do not budge, use your favorite silk scarf or bonnet to hold them all together. When they have set for as long as you can stand carefully remove the clips and rollers and watch your hair flourish! Separate by using that good paddle brush again, and your style is complete!

You Can Do The Updo Too

If curls are not your thing, then maybe an updo is something you prefer a little more. There are high ponytails, pom-pom ponytails, ninja buns, messy buns and curly ponies! The question is, which one will you choose? Despite where you make your choice, all of these have one thing in common, and that is the fact that it requires little time and maintenance to create. For all of the styles listed above, the biggest tip to remember is that for your clip ins to remain steady, you will need a sturdy base. To achieve the best sky-high updo you will need a few tools:
  • Ponytail holders
  • Brush
  • Edge control (optional)
  • Satin scarf
  • 3-5 clip ins
Start by working on a blow out that is a few days old or a style where you know that you will wash your hair soon. The trick here is that we will add the clip ins last and build our base so that they have a sturdy place to sit.

Step 1:

Gather all of your hair to the top of your head but remember to be gentle! We do not want you to put any stress on your edges or make it tighter than it should be.

Step 2:

Add edge control the catch those fly aways if wanted. Some of us like a more relaxed look and some of us prefer a snatched look. Regardless, do you!

Step 3:

Take your remaining hair a put it into a top knot bun or a braided bun.

Step 4:

Sort your clip-ins by length, making sure that you know where and how to place them. Starting with the longest clip in, clip it to the base of your hair near the bun until both end wefts meet. Repeat this with at least three clip ins until you get your desired fullness.

Step 5:

Your bun should be covered all the way around at this point with the clip ins cinched at the base giving it a flawless transition from your hair to the clip ins. Now is where you determine if you want to do a messy bun, ninja bun or a pom-pom pony! To achieve either bun, twist the hair around the base until you get the desired shape and size. For the messy look, try fluffing out individual pieces and taking a small strand and wrapping it around the base loosely. For a more polished look, go for the bobby pins and avoid fluffing too much. If you are feeling creative, try out the pom-pom ponytail for this! Getting a perfect pom-pom pony is as simple as using 2-3 more hair ties and fluffing each section for fullness. Finish off this look by using a bit of hairspray and satin scarf to set.

Half-up and Half-down Hairstyles

This is always a favorite for us who can never seem to make up our mind. The concept is just as it sounds, taking half of your hair and placing it up and leaving the other half down to some extent. Depending on what you like, you may decide to create a bun or a ponytail up top and either another ponytail at the bottom or leave it free-flowing.

Which Do you Prefer?

For a night out, try taking your clip ins and creating the perfect half up in a pony and half down free flowing! To get you started, you are going to need to prep your clip ins to ensure that they are all ready to use when you begin to get prepared. The tools that you need are easy to find and are easy to find at your local drug store, Walmart or Target.
  • Flexi rods
  • Hairspray
  • Bobby pins
  • Edge control
  • Ponytail holders
  • Satin scarf
  • Holding creme
  • Rattail comb and brush

Step 1:

To begin, start by taking your clip ins and make sure that they get detangled. Next, you will take a dime sized amount of holding creme and apply it to your clip-ins; this step is essential so that the curl will hold!

Step 2:

After you have applied some product to the clip in you will then take your flexi rod (any size you prefer will do) and twist the clip ins around the shaft of the rod. The trick here is to wrap the hair while you twist. I know, I know that sounds way too confusing but think of it as a corkscrew curl.

Step 3:

Once you have all of your clip-ins set with the flexi rod, set them aside to dry and start on your head. For a half up, half down do part your hair a little above your ears horizontally. You want to ensure that hair is at the bottom for fullness. Next, make sure that your hair detangles completetly because you will mimic what you did to your clip ins but with your natural hair.

Step 4:

After you have given your hair some time to set, remove the rods from your hair and wait to separate. Do not pull apart those curls just yet! To create your ponytail, take your brush and desired edge control and pull it to the desired place of your head creating a ponytail. Yes, your curls at the top may not be as uniform, but once you add your clip ins, it all comes together! At this stage, it is time to remove the flexi rods from your clip ins and apply them to your head.

Step 5:

From the nape of your neck up, apply the clip ins from longest to shortest, and once you reach your ponytail from earlier wrap them securely around the base. Secure with a bobby pin and the style is done! Now of course, if uniform curls are your thing be my guest and wear them proudly, but if you are anything like me, you are ready to fluff! Take a paddle brush and carefully brush out to get those SZA like waves and finish with hairspray.

Keep it Wavy

For those who prefer to wear their hair down with clip-ins, consider it no problem! If you already have your clip-ins placed to perfection then maybe you do not want to do too much shifting. Understandably, this is the reason you got extensions in the first place. To give your hair more life, try a braid out. This style is so simple that it is almost unreal on how you can achieve it. You will only need three items, and those things are water, styling creme and rubber bands.

Step 1:

Dampen and detangle your hair and finger comb to alleviate any unnecessary pulling and tugging to your roots. This is meant to be an effortless style in every sense of the word.

Step 2:

Take some styling creme of your choice and add dime sized amounts all over your hair. Working in quads helps to move faster here too! Take a paddle brush to make sure all of the product is even throughout your hair.

Step 3:

Start braiding! These do not have to be perfect, but they may require some time to get if you are not used to the technique.

Step 4:

When you have reached the end of your braids, Bantu knot the bottom and take the rubber band to secure it so that it has a curl to it when you take them out. Because this style takes a little longer to set, you may want to order in your favorite meal or find your cutest headwrap until the next day. However, when it is time to take the braids out, you will be so impressed with yourself and your new carefree look. Carefully separate, shake, and you are ready to go!

Double Bun Life

For our last style, we are going to try our hands at a double bun. You know the ones you probably hated in elementary school but love to rock now? This style is simple as well and honestly, requires few materials:
  • Two ponytail holders
  • A brush
  • Rattail comb
  • Six clip ins
  • Bobby pins

Step 1:

You will first start by parting your hair down the middle from your forehead to the nape of your neck.

Step 2:

Next you will take your clip ins, three on each side, and clip them facing upward. Depending on the fullness of your clip ins or desired thickness, alter the amount to your liking!

Step 3:

Gently brush your hair up to your desired spot. This will create two pigtails, and if you want to stop here you can! However, if you're going to continue to the double bun look, see step 4 below.

Step 4:

Twist the loose hair around the base of the ponytails, remember to alter the shape to your liking and play around with different pieces to create a messy or polished look. Secure with bobby pins to complete the style. Complement this look by adding hair jewelry, copper wire around the buns or by laying your edges! If you are feeling riskier, take some spray hair dye or hair glitter and add it to the buns for a fun and festive look.

Beat the Heat with These Styles

You do not always need heat to get a perfect style! Sometimes it just takes a little extra time and research to figure out how to create heatless styles. Getting curls without the hot tools is not as daunting as it may seem and choosing a bun over a sleek look gives your clip-ins time to breathe. The biggest plus to many of these styles is that it does little to no damage to your clip ins and natural hair and that the style lasts longer because you did not need to add in too much product. When it comes to clip-ins, many of us go with this method because we want to be versatile and do less work, so why not embrace the other side of its versatility? Think about it like this, you can say goodbye to having to spend more money and research on a new set of clip ins, and you can extend its lifetime by doing a little less than usual. Do not get me wrong, I love a good flip or a slayed silk out, but sometimes it is okay to want to try something different! So, the next time you are contemplating on how to style your hair for a girls night, work or date night, give some of the styles and tips above a try! You will not be disappointed.

What To Do and Not To Do When Wearing Clip-in Hair Extensions

What To Do and Not To Do When Wearing Clip-in Hair Extensions

Don’t Have Time to Switch Up? You Do Now

We can all get a little bored with our hair sometimes. I mean after all, generally tends to stay the same. Sometimes you want to switch it up, but that can be costly on top of the fact that you may not even end up liking the style you chose. You want a confidence boost. Longer, fuller, shinier locks are a sign of youth. Similar to a fabulous blowout or a killer pair of shoes, hair extensions can give you a little pep in your step. You want to change up your look. Bored with your strands? Clip-in hair extensions allow you to experiment with color without bleaching your hair. You want to grow out a bob. If you have a shortcut that you're desperate to grow out, extensions will instantly add length and ease your frustration.

Clip it, Tuck it Time To Wear It

It’s time to discuss a fan favorite: clip-in extensions. Clip-in hair extensions are the type of extensions that are easy for the average person to install. They are usually more affordable than other types of hair extensions, and they are also low maintenance. But, this does not imply that they should just be left alone. Your clip-ins are an extension, literally, of your current style. If your clip-ins are wild, then everyone will assume you are too. Now, that is not to say that we need to start caring what other people think, but it is essential always to present the best form of yourself so that others can have a real essence of who you are. Capture your best features, because you are the only one that knows how to accentuate them. A lot of women tend to ask what they should and should not do when it comes to clipping in hair extensions. Clip in hair extensions for women is something that is quite easy to use, as I said before. Using clip-in extensions are a great technique for women who don’t want a lot of maintenance, women with shorter hair and women who want to try new hairstyles without the commitment. If a woman has a straight hair texture, they can always try out slight wavy extensions and try out a beautiful style. A woman with curlier hair may feel like trying out some straight clip-in hair extensions!

“To All The Extensions I Loved Before…”

Clip-on extensions are a money saving, time managing lifesaver! Even though we love clip-in extensions, there are still certain things women must be careful about when they use it. If you are not careful, you can damage your clip-in extensions to the point of no return. Who wants that problem? Save yourself the trouble and keep reading about the things you should and should not do when wearing clip-in hair extensions.

What Should You Do When Wearing Clip-In Extensions?

When choosing which extensions to wear, make sure you find the type of hair that you wish to have. When it comes to your hair, money should not be an object. Wait! Let me tell you why. Investing money in clip-in hair extensions will never be a waste. It would make no sense to buy a cheap extension that will probably get worn out after wearing it a couple of times. Investing in good quality clip-in extensions would always benefit you. Plus, you do not need to worry about the commitment of wearing them since you can take them out as much as you want to. Be careful when removing them each time, you do not want to put wear and tear on your actual hair and cause it to thin out. Again, make sure that the color of the extensions that you pick is the right color for your vision. Otherwise, that would defeat the whole purpose. The look would not be what you originally imagined, and you will feel as though you wasted your time and money. Maybe, you have heard this next one before, or perhaps you have no, but always create a foundation when installing your clip ins. Apply the clips where your hair is thickest. The clip-ins will have a better grip on your hair, and you will not have to worry about your clip-in extensions pulling and tugging on your hair as much. Brush your hair and the extension only after removing the extensions. This statement goes back to the pulling and tugging of your hair. If you try to brush your hair with the clip0in extensions still installed, you are putting your edges at risk. Do not do it!

What Should You NOT Do When Wearing Clip-In Extensions?

There are not too many things that you are not allowed to do when you have clip-in extensions installed, but the few things that you should not do could be your hair’s downfall if you are not careful. Make sure to use quality shampoo on your clip-in extensions. You must understand the type of shampoo that is best for your hair and the extension. Lousy shampoo can lead to damage of hair extensions, and nobody has time for that right now! Do yourself a favor and invest in some quality hair products. Do not keep the extensions clipped in for long and I can’t stress this one enough. Keeping them in too long can cause a lot of unnecessary damage. You could be causing damage to your roots, your edges, the clip-in hair extensions and your actual hair. Remove it once you finish and decide what you would like to do with the clip-in extensions afterward. Always start clipping in by making sections on your bottom side of the head. It is much easier. Do not start from the top of your head, because wearing the clips too high can put a strain on your hair. Do not use styling products on the extensions. Water and leave in conditioner are your best bet. Think twice before you dye an extension. If this is something you want to do, you may want to make sure you have all of the proper tools to do so. Better yet, it is best to hit up your local hair stylist or salon.

What Are Some Other Installation Methods for Hair Extensions?

Clip-ins are probably the most accessible form of installing your hair extensions because anybody can quickly learn how to do these at home. But, there are other installation techniques that we should briefly talk about in this article. Who knows? Maybe, clip-ins aren’t your thing.

Tape-In Extensions

These are a relatively new concept in the hair extension world, but they are on the rise. Tape-in hair extensions are what they sound like in the name! The extensions are pre-taped and then taped/glued together on either side of your hair. Typically, a hairdresser would apply tape-ins for you because you need to align them to the roots and he or she would use them with a heated tool that heats up the glue. Additionally, you would need to have them removed (with glue remover) and then reinstalled. Naturally, when you apply heat to your roots and any adhesive product such as tape or glue, this can damage your hair. This process usually takes approximately 40 minutes to an hour to apply, and if the extensions are in excellent condition, you can reuse them.

Sew-Ins

This particular method is probably one of the more popular options, especially with women of color. Weave hair is applied by braiding the natural hair into a cornrow first, and then the extensions are attached using a needle and thread and threaded into the braid/cornrow. Weave hair extension used to be for people with thicker hair because of the way they are applied and require more hair to mask. Generally speaking, the weave application is a very long process (usually several hours) and are applied tightly which often puts a strain on the scalp and therefore feel very heavy and uncomfortable. That is also the reason why it doesn’t work well with thin or lighter hair. A hairdresser also applies this method as it is a very technical and challenging application that needs to be sewn in by a professional. (Note: sew-ins are also known as “tracking” when using a wig, which is also sewn into the cornrow the same way but the hair comes attached to a separate piece.) This type of hair extensions is the most painful/uncomfortable, but it’s popular because it’s the most permanent type and most seamless because it’s sewn into your hair and cannot come off.

Micro Links

Micro link hair extensions are also known as microbead or micro- loop hair extensions too, so not to worry if you hear these different names. These hair extensions are applied by looping the extensions through the natural hair. You then clamp it down with a special tool/clamp, heat, and a metal bead (or ring). They are fixed to small sections of natural hair and tightened with this unique tool/clamp. Once again, this method can be very damaging because the heat from applying the metal rings causes the hair to burn and break. This method also takes approximately 3 hours to install.

Human Hair vs. Synthetic Hair

You know what to do with them. But, how do you choose them? First, you need to decide the type of hair you are If you want the best, it doesn't get better than human hair clip in hair extensions. They look and feel the most natural, last the longest and provide the most styling options. You can style the hair with heat tools, even colored. The highest-grade human hair clip on extensions are Remy human hair. The people minimally process the Remy hair with the cuticles intact. The result, hair that is shinier, healthier and virtually tangle-free. Clip-ins offers a price friendly option to human hair clip extensions. Synthetic hair is not affected by the weather, so it's a great option for special occasions. If you've never worn hair extensions, you may want to try them out first before investing in human hair clip in extensions. Synthetic hair usually last for 1 to 3 months before you start to see wear.

What Clip-In Extension Works Best For Me?

You were probably already aware of this small fact, but clip-in hair extensions come in many forms of an installation called “pieces.” Pieces are merely the tiny pieces that the hair extensions are attached to, that then connects to your hair through clipping it in. There are two options you can choose from with this method: one piece or multiple pieces.

1 PIECE

One-piece clip-in hair extension systems are simple to attach and offer an instant hairstyle in a snap. One-piece systems come in a variety of lengths, curl patterns, colors, and styles. It gives you instant volume and is probably best for beginners are for people who do not feel like putting in multiple clips.

MULTIPLE PIECES

With multiple pieces you can be a little more creative because now you can place the volume where you want it as opposed to the one-piece. 2 piece extension systems generally consist of one fuller piece which clips in high and one smaller piece that clips in at the nape. Similar to the one piece system, they are easy to apply and perfect for beginners. Eight-part and ten piece systems come with varying widths of weft hair that are positioned from smallest to largest working from the bottom. Multi-piece systems offer the most styling versatility. The application takes some practice.

See! Now, That Was Not So Bad

These are some of the common suggestions I would recommend to everyone who is using clip-in hair extensions. It is true that clip-ins are the easiest to use, but just like any other extension, you should take care of your extensions. Always understand that extensions are called that because they are to be considered an extension of your hair itself. It is essential that you give the same importance to your clip-in hair extensions and treat them right! What are some helpful tips you use when installing clip-in hair extensions? What are some things you believe are harmful to them? How often do you wear them? I want to hear everything! Leave me a question or comment below!

Why Clip-Ins are a Healthier Choice for Your Hair

Why Clip-Ins are a Healthier Choice for Your Hair

The Easy and Efficient Hair Hack

We all look for ways to achieve sexy, voluminous hair without spending hours in a salon chair. Whether we are headed to work or out with the girls, a fast solution to limp hair is always the best choice. So, how do you spruce up your hair in a short period with little effort? You can install clip-in extensions! Clip-ins are perfect for the on-the-go businesswoman, the mommy with the long to-do list, the socialite who wants to head straight to the dance floor after a long day in the office and even the woman who’s a combination of the three. I know clip-ins sometimes get a bad rap because they are a lot different from a traditional sew-in or any other technique of this nature. However, we’re going to dive into the benefits of clip-ins as well as how they can keep your hair healthy and damage-free. Let’s get into the ins and outs of this method!

What is a Clip-In Extension?

For my hair queens that are still a little unsure about the structure of a clip-in extension, I’ve got you covered! Simply put, a clip-in is a weft with a hair extension placed on it. Each weft is cut into smaller sections to fit multiple areas of your head. All the wefts have small combs attached to them which you’ll use to secure the extension to the root of your real hair. You can find clip-ins in all kinds of textures and styles from curly to kinky to even bone straight. They are the perfect way to volumize whatever look you’re going for by adding a natural boost to your hair.

How Clip-Ins Are Healthy for Your Hair

Are you still on the fence about wearing clip-ins because you’re worried about the result for your real hair? I get it, but I can assure you that this method has its benefits. We’re going to dive into a few of those:
  • Since you are not using thread to sew the hair extensions in or glue to bond them to your hair, you have a better chance of avoiding extreme damage that is often caused by adding too much tension.
  • It can be tough trying to take care of your natural hair underneath a sew-in. Because you can quickly remove clip-ins without having to keep them in your hair for long periods of times, your hair can rest more than it usually would underneath a sew-in. By installing clip-ins, you will have the freedom to take the extensions out as often as you need to for regular maintenance.
  • The use of the small combs prevents thinning and breakage because they will not tug on your hair if installed correctly. The combs clasp unto your hair with one gentle motion.
  • The combs are also beneficial because there is little to no risk of pulling your hair out during the removal process since you are only unclasping them. If removed with caution, you will not snag any of your real hair.
  • With clip-ins, you can expect to have low pressure on your roots because the clip-ins do not sit directly on them. By placing the extensions ½ of an inch away from the root, you are allowing that area to breathe even after a full installation.

How to Properly Install Clip-Ins

As you can see, clip-in extensions are great for anyone who’s looking to keep their hair healthy while changing up their style. So, let’s say you’ve finally purchased your first set of clip-ins – now where do you begin? No worries. I’m here to help! I’ve listed a few steps to help you install your hair extensions in a way that will maintain the health and integrity of your natural hair.

Step 1:

Figure out where you want to place your first row of clip-ins and make a straight part in that area. You can part your hair anywhere you would like, going in whichever direction you desire.

Step 2:

Choose the wefts you would like to place first by determining the best size for the section where you began your part. For example, you may decide to put the longer wefts in the areas where your part is long such as the middle of the head.

Step 3:

Open the clips that are located on the back of the weft and place the comb into your hair about ½ of an inch down from the root. Clasp it shut to secure the clip-in.

Step 4:

Repeat this process until you achieve your desired fullness and length.

Tips for Maintaining Clip-Ins and the Health of Your Hair

For your clip-ins to remain fresh and healthy, you must take care of them before placing them into your real hair! Choosing the proper measures for protecting your clip-ins will also keep your hair healthy with them installed. Check out these tips for keeping your hair and clip-ins in the best shape.
  • Give your hair a break! We love our hair extensions, but it is always important to allow your hair to rest from time to time. Wearing clip-ins for an extended period can potentially lead to damage and hair loss.
  • Wash your clip-ins regularly, but not excessively. A bi-weekly wash with great conditioning will do the trick!
  • Keep your hair, scalp and clip-ins moisturized. This tip is essential for any hairstyle, even when rocking a look without hair extensions. Moisture will keep both your hair and the clip-ins looking fresh and hydrated! For your clip-ins, opt for a lightweight moisturizer to avoid weighing the hair down.
  • Avoid using an excessive amount of heat. If you’re using human hair clip-ins, it is best to limit the use of hot tools because you do not want to damage the hair.

Just Clip It In!

Now that you know how to rock and care for your clip-ins, you can start slaying honey! Clip-ins are the perfect option for a cute, yet convenient style. The key is to keep your hair healthy underneath and treat the clips-ins with a little TLC!

Typically, you can have extensions last for about a year, but life expectancy will depend on how often you wear them. So, if you want to save a few extra coins, we suggest you check out this list of hair care tips to make your clip-in extensions last longer.

Do Not Wash Clip-ins Frequently

Typically, you should only wash your clip-ins about two to three times a month, or between every 15 to 20 uses. If you are not wearing the style, frequently there is still no need to wash the extensions excessively. Remember that weave has no natural source of moisture like the hair on top of our heads. Since it doesn't receive the nutrients and oil from your scalp, we must find alternative ways to hydrate the hair. Try to stay away from products that include alcohol or sulfate. These ingredients will only cause the curls to dry out and become more brittle. To help clip-in extensions retain moisture wash them less while using helpful and not harmful products. Now, if you have a sew-in, you are required to wash the style a little more simply because it is attached to your natural hair. No matter what method you choose, you do not want to neglect or ignore your real mane underneath your extensions. Moral of the story, you shouldn't overuse your clip-ins they are a short style for a reason. Treat the hair with care, and you will start to notice how much longer they last.

Be Careful with Heating Products

Its hard to avoid natural elements like rain or moisture in the air, be we recommend trying to keep your clip-in extensions dry. If your hair becomes wet and you want to dry them, use an ionic blow dryer. This tool minimizes frizz, tangles, and prevent over drying or causing damage to the weave. On another note, If you're someone who loves straight hair, we suggest purchasing clip-in extensions that already come in that style. Excessively curling or straightening your hair will leave them looking dull and frizzy. You want to keep your clip-ins feeling lightweight and easy to manage. Purchasing extensions that match closely with your natural curls will require less work and save you time in the end. Leave the hot tools and extreme styling for a sew-in or more permanent hairstyle.

Try Your Hardest to Not Bleach the Clip-ins

I know we all want our extensions to match well with our natural hair, which is a great plus. If you purchase human hair clip-in extensions, you can dye them to a darker color with ease. On the other hand, if you want a lighter shade, we suggest you head to a salon. Professionals have a lot more experience on their side and will know the best way to color the hair without damaging the tresses. Many may not know this, but some companies will already dye extensions at the manufacturing level. If you go right behind and bleach the weave as well, you will run into extreme difficulties. Forcing bleach on hair, increasing bleach concentration, or leaving the chemical on for too long is a recipe for disaster. And even after going through all these measures there is still a chance that the color will not come out as you desire. I do understand that we all want to save money every chance we get. So, before you color the weave test the process out on one clip-in weft first; that way you can see the full results beforehand. Luckily Private Label Extensions offer a variety of clip-in extensions ranging from different colors. We have choices from jet black and mocha brown to Auburn and platinum blonde. If you are ever in need of high-quality extensions check out the many options, we provide. We promise you will fall in love, and there will never be a need to bleach your weave again.

Store Your Clip-ins Properly After Use

If you're anything like me, you will find yourself throwing your clip-ins on the side or leaving them in the bathroom after use. But this is not the right way to go; there is a sure way you must store your extensions after wearing them. When you prep the hair extensions before storing them away you should first gather them all in one location. Next, carefully brush out the hair of any knots or tangles. You want to brush from the bottom and slowly work your way up to the wefts. You want to be as gentle as possible to reduce extreme shedding or breakage. After clearing out, all the knots use a hair tie and wrap it around the end of the extensions. Lastly, roll the weave into a circle and put them in a safe place. You should keep the original box or packaging that your hair came in, this will make the storage process easier. If you are in a rush, you can also try doing a loose not on the bulk of the clip-ins to prevent tangles. No matter which method you choose you should always store your clip-ins after wearing them throughout the day.

How Do You Make Your Clip-ins Last Longer?

If you follow these fantastic hair care tips, your clip-in extensions is sure to last you a little longer. Whether you are new to hair extensions or a longtime user, these tricks are beneficial. Remember that the better you take care of your investment the more money you save in the end. Since extensions don't have a natural hydration source, you should take the time to add moisture to them in between washes. Simple tasks like conditioning the hair will go a long way, believe us. Weave comes in many different textures, so there is no set way to take care of them. Trying out different methods and seeing which ones work best with your clip-in style is the smart thing to do. Just like our natural tresses to lessen the chance of damage avoids over-styling or washing. You'll begin to realize that with tender love, attention, and consistency your extensions will last for months to come. Is there a specific way you make clip-in extensions last longer? If so let us hear all about it in the comments down below.

How to Blend Clip-In Hair Extensions For The Best Hairstyle!

How to Blend Clip-In Hair Extensions For The Best Hairstyle!

The Ease and Commitment-free Life of Clip-in Extensions

If you want to add volume, length, or just ready to switch up your hairstyle but don’t want to commit to the likes of a sew-in or a quick weave, clip-in extensions are the most suitable option. With clip-ins, you’re able to .. as the name suggests, clip the extensions in and take them out as you please without the hassle of cutting threads or taking clumps of glue out of your hair. The options are endless when it comes to the styles you can choose, switch it up and rock curly clip ins and when you want to have a sleek look, you can wear straight clip-in extensions the next day.

You’ve Got Your Clip-ins, Now What?

The ease of clip ins is what makes them desirable for women, no matter their hair texture. The best way to rock extensions is to make sure that they blend effortlessly no matter the style you choose to wear. There’s a method to making sure your extensions blend effortlessly with your hair. Here a few ways to ensure that your clip in extensions is as natural looking as possible.

Make Sure That Your Base Is Solid

Having a solid foundation for your extensions is critical. If your braiding foundation isn’t secure, your hair won’t be able to lay correctly and ensure that you have a natural and flawless look. Similar to sew in extensions, your clip-in extensions can’t correctly lay if the foundation isn’t stable or firm enough for the weft to balance on. Making sure you that have a secure base will not only help the hair to lay as flat as possible for blending, but it will also make sure that your hair isn’t being pulled and tugged from the clips. You don’t want to deal with hair damage or breakage from these extensions.

Keep Your Clips Hidden

Create what is known as a “safe zone” in your head when determining where your clip ins will go. The safe zone will be a place in your hair, either towards the center or the end, where you will secure the clips so that they’re hidden, and no one else can see them. Having a safe zone in your hair will help the clips blend underneath the extensions as well as any hair that you decide to leave out.

Know What Matches Your Hair Type

Experimenting with extensions is so fun, you love the thrill of going from one style to the next in a matter of days. However, to blend and ensuring that your hair looks as natural as possible, be sure to choose clip-in extensions that match your hair type. If you have fine hair, make sure to get silky straight extensions. If your hair is kinky or curly, be sure to get the pattern that matches your curls. This is so that once styling is complete, the extensions look as though they’re growing right from your scalp.

Choose The Right Pieces to Clip-in

There are so many hair clips that come with clip-in extensions, and while it may be enticing to use every single weft, you won’t need them all. The pieces you choose will depend on the exact look you’re going for as well as the size of your head. For those with smaller heads, you’ll use fewer clip-ins, and for those with larger heads, you’ll need more clip ins to ensure that there are no spaces in between the extensions. Also, if you try to fit too many clip ins on your head at one time, you’ll run the risk of having the tracks stick up and be visible to everyone, we don’t want that.

Layers Are Key

Once you’ve chosen your textures and the hair pieces you’ll be using, it’s time to clip in the hair! The most exciting part of the process because this is where you’ll see your hair come to life. Once you secure the hair extensions and they are placed to your liking, to help with blending the hair, a great tip is to layer the extensions. By layering your clip-ins, you’ll be able to provide a more realistic look as offer volume in different areas of your hair. Layering can also make a big difference especially if your actual hair is already layered. This effect will help make your extensions pop a lot more!

It’s Time to Style Your Extensions

Once you’ve layered and trimmed your extensions to your liking, it’s time to style your extensions. Styling will helpfully blend your hair, no matter the style or texture that you have, the way you design it will help you maneuver your hair for leave out and blending. If you’re wearing curly extensions, be sure to add moisture and tease the hair out to ensure fullness and to hide the wefts. When styling your curly hair, you can do a simple wash and go routine to define your curls, or you can manipulate the curls by stretching them or using rods. If you’re wearing straight or wavy extensions, be sure that the wefts are laying flat and that there are no visible humps in your hair as well as making sure that the wefts are not showing through. When styling, be sure to use a heat protectant if you want to use additional heat on your extensions. Be sure to use the same method on your actual hair that you use on the clip ins so that they blend flawlessly.

Rock Your Clip-in Extensions With Ease

Wearing extensions has never been more comfortable and more convenient. Once you style your clip-ins to perfection, and you’ve managed to blend your hair along with them, you’ll be ready to rock your style until you find another hair inspiration. Be sure to take care of your clip-ins as you would with sew-in extensions or even a wig. The more responsibility you put into them, the longer they’ll last, and you’ll be able to reuse them multiple times.

Create A Bomb Tapered Cut Using Natural Clip-In Extensions

Create A Bomb Tapered Cut Using Natural Clip-In Extensions

All The Tools You Need For This Look

A long time ago, I used to rock a short cut. I loved the look but quickly became tired of it because I felt it lacked versatility. I didn’t think I would be able to have a shortcut with multiple styles, and I was not interested in wearing a wig. One thing I missed while rocking my cut had volume in my hair. At the time, I didn’t know how many different ways you could add volume to a shortcut, so I felt pretty stuck and dull. Luckily, these days there are multiple ways to be versatile even if you have little to no hair. A cut style that I’m interested in trying is a tapered cut. However, I don’t want to cut my hair again. What do I do? I use extensions and clip-ins to create the tapered cut of my dreams. I asked a friend of mine that has a fantastic tapered cut, and she told me her step by step process. Her natural hair is shoulder length, outside of her shaved sides and you could never tell by looking at her. If you’re wanting to get a tapered cut but don’t know how to achieve it, it's okay. Private Labels Extensions has got you covered.

Think About The Look You Want

When it comes to a tapered cut, there are many different ways to style. Typically, the most seen kind of tapered cut is natural kinky hair with shaved, or low sides. It’s such a cute style that most people love it and never go back! Before creating a tapered form with extensions, it’s essential to have an idea of the look you want. Do you want volume at the top? Do you want your sides to show? Or do you want your natural hair wholly covered? These are all critical questions to ask yourself before creating this fantastic look. If you’re still not sure what look, you want to try, then go to different internet resources such as Pinterest and Youtube. When I wanted to try out a tapered cut, I looked on Youtube and spent hours searching until I saw something I utterly adored. You don’t have to spend hours looking like I did, but you should do the proper research before actually trying out the look.

Consult A Professional

As always, with most hair ventures, it’s important to consult a professional. Hairstylists will be able to let you know what kind of process you’ll need to go through to achieve this look. The first thing you should ask your hair stylist is what your hair type is. Your hair type will be a huge factor in determining how you go about achieving this hairstyle. Also, since you’ll be adding extensions, it’s important to make sure you and your hairstylist choose the right ones. We’ll discuss hair extension types later. You hair stylists will be able to show you the proper way to cut a tapered cut and manage it after initial installation. You’ll want to ask your hairstylist about the proper hair products to maintain the hair such as shampoos, conditioners, and styling products. Shortcuts, especially tapered cuts, created with extensions have the potential to become stale and dull looking if not properly taken care of. By using the right products, you’ll be able to keep your style looking fresh, and hydrated. Sometimes, a hairstylist consultation can be an expensive hairstylist service. If you can’t afford to see a hairstylist, then check youtube, or ask a trusted friend and see what you guys can discuss.

What About Your Natural Hair?

Achieving a tapered cut with extensions will require you to take your natural hair into account. To get the most natural looking tapered cut, you may have to leave some of your hair out. For example, when I had a shortcut, I had my sides shaved and allowed my hair at the top of my head to be extended. While having shaved sided, it was easy for me to have a variety of short hairstyles by using hair extensions. If you’re opposed to manipulating and cutting your natural hair to achieve this look, then that is okay too. You don’t have to change your natural hair to get this style. The reality is that you can get a tapered cut by using extensions and covering your natural hair completely. It’s important to know that getting a tapered cut style this way can be confusing without leaving some of your hair out, but it’s not impossible. You’ll need to be patient, have a bomb hairstylist or someone that can help you get what you want out of your hairstyle. If you do your hair, then there’s nothing to worry about. During this entire process, it is essential to keep your natural hair protected. Don’t use products that may damage your hair. When installing extensions be sure to be mindful of the method you’re using. Be extra careful when using adhesive or glue, and gentle when handling the sew-in method.

Choose The Right Extensions

Choosing the extensions, you’ll use to get your tapered cut is the most crucial part. Selecting the right extensions for a tapered cut is essential because the best-tapered cuts have a beautiful, often curly, and luscious texture. There are a couple of extension options available to achieve this look. The first option is to use human hair extensions, which is the best option in my opinion. Human hair extensions can be manipulated and styled in ways that synthetic hair cannot. Human hair extensions are also the type of extensions to mimic the look of natural hair. By using human hair extensions, you’ll be able to maintain your tapered cut for a more extended period. If you decide to use synthetic extensions, then it’s okay. You will still be able to achieve your look with synthetic hair. We’ll discuss the different hair brands, both human and artificial, that are best for getting this amazingly cute look.

Human Hair Extensions For Tapered Cut

As mentioned before, human hair extensions are the best extensions type to achieve this look. Human hair extensions can be styled and manipulated. You can shampoo, condition, and blow-dry your human hair extensions as if they were your natural hair for a tapered cut; you’ll want to get extensions that look natural and kinky. There are plenty of different human hair extension brands that you can use to get this look, but the brands above are my favorite. Make sure you do all the necessary research before choosing a brand. Read reviews, watch reviews, and determine what’s best for the look you’re going for, and the budget you’re on. Both of the brands mentioned earlier are a bit expensive, but because of the quality, you will be able to keep them for some time. Just make sure you take care of them in an appropriate manner.

Synthetic Extensions For A Tapered Cut

Synthetic hair extensions for a tapered cut is a bit more difficult than the human hair. As you may know, synthetic hair isn’t as easily manipulated as human hair is. However, despite this fact, it’s important not to be discouraged. You can still achieve the look you want even by using synthetic hair. The most significant things you’ll need to understand is that synthetic hair won’t last as long as human hair, and you won’t be able to shampoo and condition it to keep it from getting dull. There are many different synthetic hair brands that you can use to maintain this style. In my opinion, the best way to achieve this look is by using crochet hair. Crochet hair is synthetic and comes in different forms. To get the best-tapered cut look, you’ll want to get a curly extension style. Get a brand that is curly or kinky and easy to manage. Synthetic hair can last about two months so be prepared to change it often. There are plenty of tutorials on how to achieve a tapered cut using crochet hair. It’s relatively simple and looks fantastic.

How To Cut A Tapered Cut

This is the essential part when it comes to a tapered cut. How you cut your style determines how it will look, and how well you will be able to manage it. When I started doing my hair, I found that cutting was hard because I wasn’t sure how to layer my extensions and make it look good. I had to watch plenty of tutorials and go through trial and error before finally getting it right. The key to cutting the perfect tapered cut is ensuring you have an idea of the style you wish to achieve. A good pair of hair scissors will also be beneficial. If you’ve never cut your hair before then, I suggest asking someone with some experience. Ask a professional that knows how to cut and layer hair, and they will be able to help you look amazing. All in all, cutting is the most important part and can be difficult, but it’s not impossible to master. Your local hair-store should have all the products you need.

Installation Method Matters

The installation method you choose when going for a tapered cut will determine how you need to style your hair after installation. If you’re getting a sew-in, then try the invisible method so that your style looks natural. If you’re using glue, then it’ll be a little bit difficult to hide the edges unless you have some left out. Your hairstylist should be able to let you know what the best form of installation is. If you don’t want to deal with setup, you can always get a tapered cut wig that you can put on, and take off every day. The wig method is the least natural looking because most tapered styled wigs have sharp edges that don’t seem natural. I would stay away from them if looking natural is the goal.

What To Remember

It’s important to remember that a tapered cut is a standard hairstyle and can be achieved in a multitude of ways. Most people get a tapered cut with natural hair, but you can also accomplish the style using extensions. There are different types of extensions you can use, but the main categories are human and synthetic. Human hair is the best option if you want your style to look completely natural. Human hair is also the best option if you're going to style and keep your style in for a long time. Synthetic hair can also be used, but it won’t last as long. However, because synthetic hair is cheaper and has a wide variety of styles, it may be the better option if you’re looking for something quick. It’s always best to ask a professional but doesn’t worry if you can’t afford one. There are plenty of tutorials that can help you achieve this look. It’s also best to do your research before trying out a new look. Also, since you’ll be using extensions, you’ll want to think carefully about what kind of installation method you’ll be using. You can have a leave out, or you don’t have to. Either way, we’re sure you’ll come out looking fabulous!

How Clip In Extensions Give your Hair Major Volume

How Clip In Extensions Give your Hair Major Volume

Bend and Snap

I've always had thick hair. In my hair’s natural state it will break combs, hair ties, hair clips, and everything in between. So imagine how puzzling it was when I would get my hair flat ironed and it would look so thin and see through. I know this is a problem that a ton of natural girls have because they are used to all volume all the time, and then when they get their hair straightened it's almost like “New hair, who dis?”. Women who wear weave often experience the same feeling when taking their hair out of their sew-in or letting their mane breathe from their wig. When looking at your natural hair, there may be a sense of loss because you don’t see the fullness you once experienced with the weave. Thick hair is GOALS. Whether your hair is short and blunt or long and layered, we all want to have massive amounts of it. Nevertheless, growing thick, voluminous hair may not be in the cards for some of us. This is where clip-in extensions come into play. You can easily bend and snap the weft of the clip in extensions onto your roots to add instant volume to your press. Keep reading to learn how to sport a full head of hair in no time!

The Basics

For those who may not know what clip-in hair extensions are, let me give you the rundown. Clip-ins are a short-term way for you to rock extensions. That’s right, no commitment! They are composed of traditional wefted hair extensions and metal clips. You should always select clip-in bundles to match your hair texture in its finished state. A lot of the time you will be wearing your hair in conjunction with the clips. You can use the clips to give you length, volume, and color. When you think about it, clip-in extensions are a true temporary do-it-yourself option for a lot of semi-permanent hairstyles. All sets of clip-in hair extensions will come in a variety of weft sizes for you to secure than them to the different parts of your head via a small snap on clip. The clips are attached to the weft and virtually undetectable once adhered to your head.

Head Mapping: Volume vs. Length

Private Label Extensions sells sets of clip-ins with varying lengths to clip around the different sections of your head. Each pack comes with seven clips. (1) 8-inch weft section with four clips (1) 7-inch weft section with four clips (3) 6-inch weft sections with three clips (2) 4-inch weft sections with two clips You can use one or two packs to increase the volume in your locks. In previous articles, we have talked about hair extension mapping, the art of pre-planning where your wefts will lay on your head. It is important that even though you may or may not use all of the clip-ins throughout your entire head, you still map where your extensions are going to go. This is especially true when adding clip-ins to volumize your hair. You want to ensure that you have enough to place at least three rows of extensions in the middle of your head. You will get maximum volume when you add hair from the earlobe up. Any lower placed clip-in extensions will only add length. Follow the style tips below to master how to add clip-in extensions to achieve the volume you want!

How to Apply Straight Clip-Ins to Add Volume and Style (30 Min.)

Things You’ll Need:

Step One

On freshly washed and blow-dried hair (straightened if you need to match the texture to your clip-ins) spray a small amount of root lifter onto your roots. This step will give your clip-ins something to latch on to, and it will prevent you from having to tease your roots harshly.

Step Two

Clip the hair extensions to your head. The clip-in part is where our head mapping will come in handy. Taking one hair clip, divide your hair into two sections in a half up/half down manner starting just below your ears. Take your widest extension, the 8” clip and clip each of the four clips across your head. Next, work your way up your head and prepare to use each of the two smaller width extensions, the 4-inch wefts. Start at the mid-ear point, and using your comb create a part. Clip one small weft behind each ear respectively. Be sure to leave about two inches between the start of the extension and the ear so that you can freely play with your hair and avoid your wefts showing if and when the wind blows. Right on top of that row add on your 7” weft.

Step Three

Take the top of your hair down from the clip to assess the volume. You may not end up using the entire package of clip-ins, but that is fine. However, you may see fit to add your additional clips. You can add more clip-in extensions based on your preference. Remember, for more volume you only want to add hair from your earlobe up. Any lower placement of the clip-ins will add length.

Step Four

Cut the clip ins to your hair! The easiest way to do this is to split the hair into a few sections. Then, using your natural length as a guide, comb through both your hair and the extensions and make vertical incisions into your clip-ins about one-half of an inch down from your natural ends. Continue this method of cutting by taking small sections and matching where you’ve cut previously.

Step Five

Style! Spray a little dry shampoo onto your hair at the root to give your hair some lift and texture. Then, grab small sections of hair and create some textured curls going layer by layer with your hair and the extensions. A lot of time you may be adding your clip-ins because you have just realized that you have is falling flat, and you’ve wasted all of your get ready time trying to figure out what’s wrong with your look. We’ve got something for that too! Use this quick and dirty method below to add volume to your look.

How to Apply Straight Clip-Ins to Add Volume (15 Min.)

Note: Please take everything you’ve learned previously and do it in reverse. Things You’ll Need:

Step One

Flip your head over.

Step Two

Starting at your earlobe clip in your hair extensions upside down. Using the same order of wefts, work your way down. Clip your extensions in towards the crown of your head that is facing the floor instead of the ceiling. You are creating the volume you want without root lifter or a dry shampoo because you are clipping them upward as opposed to flat on the hairline.

Step Three

Flip Your head over.

Step Four (Optional)

Cut the clip ins precisely to the ends of your hair! The easiest way to do this is to split the hair into a few sections. Then, using your natural length as a guide, comb through both your hair and the extensions and make vertical incisions into your clip-ins along the edge of your hair. Continue this method of cutting by taking small sections and matching where you’ve cut previously. You can forgo a lot of the styling because the ends of the extensions will blend with the tips of your hair due to the raised positioning of the weft.

How to Clip-in Color to Add Volume

If you are not big on color that is okay! A lot of us with dark strands tend to be a little leery of adding a chemical color because of the bleaching process that damages the hair. However, what you may not realize is that a lot of people who color their hair, do so to add the illusion of volume. Lucky for those of us who wear clip-ins, you don’t need to color your whole head to benefit from the color hack. In fact, a couple of rows of highlights will give us the exact look we are trying to achieve. Adding two tones to your hair to serve as a highlight will create volume, texture, and definition. For example, if you have a natural black hair color, you may want to purchase some mocha brown and chestnut brown clip-ins to add some color to your style and create an illusion of more hair. You would do this by adding in your six in and four-inch wefts to the middle of your hair. All the while alternating with colors and never overdoing it. The great thing about highlights is that they are sporadic, so you do not have to be so neat with your application like in the previous styles.

Step One

On freshly washed and blow-dried hair (straightened if you need to match the texture to your clip-ins) spray a small amount of root lifter onto your roots to give your clip-ins something to latch on to.

Step Two

Clip the hair extensions to your head. For manageability, take one hair clip and divide your hair into two sections in half up/half down manner starting at the nape of your next section off a piece of your hair and then add in your first color. You can use one six inch weft in the middle of this section to start. Next, work your way up your head and prepare to use each of the two smaller width extensions of your second highlight color. Using your comb create a part and clip one small weft at the opposite ends of the new section you’ve formed. Be sure to leave about two inches between the start of the extension and the ear so that you can freely play with your hair and avoid your wefts showing if and when the wind blows. Continue to work your way up your head alternating colors as you leave large sections of your hair in between the clip-ins.

Step Three

Take the top of your hair down from the clip to assess the volume. Again, you may want to add your additional clips. It just creates less of a visible color blocking effect if you use the small pieces on different sections of your parts. You can add other extensions based on your preference. This technique also differs from the first volumizing technique because you are adding spurts of color throughout your hair. Meaning, you can create volume and insert the clip-ins throughout your head.

Step Four

Cut or trim the clip ins to make a seamlessly blended effect! The easiest way to do this is to split the hair into a few sections. Then, using your natural length as a guide, comb through both your hair and the extensions and make vertical incisions into your clip-ins about one-half of an inch down from your natural ends. Continue this method of cutting by taking small sections and matching where you’ve cut previously.

Step Five

Style! You can forgo the dry shampoo and curls here. The additional colors will create a volumizing effect with or without texture added to your styling process.

Pump-up the Volume

Although no one is hunting for the bump it that made huge humps trendy in the 1970's, flat hair is still overrated and rarely celebrated. Gone are the days when bone straight hair made you turn your head. Thankfully, if you cannot grow more hair, you can at least fake it! With clip-in extensions, you can create voluminous barrel curls under your beanie in the winter, or textured beach waves for your summer slay. Whether you have a lot of time to master your look before your girls night out, or you are rushing to get to the office, you can clip-in this temporary fix to your thin strands. Clip-in extensions can even incorporate some color into your locks while increasing the volume as well. Comment below to let us know which way you’ll be achieving your voluminous locks this summer.

7 Ways To Blend Colored Hair With Non-colored Clip-ins

7 Ways To Blend Colored Hair With Non-colored Clip-ins

Blending Your Hair And Extensions Just Got Easier

I love to dye my hair tons of different colors, and I get bored with my hair quickly. Therefore, I tend to dye my hair often. I especially love adding in extensions because I can play with my look with minimal effort and I am ready to go in no time. Naturally, one of the issues I run into along with my passion for rainbow hair is blending my clip-ins with my colored hair. We have all seen people with extensions with a clear marker where the leave out starts and when the extensions begin. I think extensions, specifically clip-ins, should be seamless and leave everyone guessing whether or not that is your real hair. That is the ultimate compliment! I have researched and experimented with enough hair and hair color to be able to give you seven different ways you can blend your colored hair with non-colored clip-ins. Get ready to slay all day and let the compliments roll in!

The Clip-ins

First thing is first, you need good quality clip-ins. It is best to get clip-ins that match your current curl pattern. Whether your hair is wavy, curly or straight, it will be an easier process of blending your hair if the clip-ins you have at least match your curl pattern. PLE has a large variety of clip-ins of different curl patterns and colors that will match whatever your style. However, if you have the means to purchase new clip-ins, you can easily purchase clip-ins that match your current hair color (unless your hair is colored a fantasy color). Therefore, for the sake of this article, I am going to assume that you have some non-colored clip-in extensions already in your possession that you want to blend with your colored hair.

1. Heat Styling

Heat styling is the ultimate go-to for blending colored hair with naturally colored clip-in extensions. You can use two different methods for blending your hair with heat.

Straight Hair Goals

Straight hair blending is the most common method for blending clip-ins. You want to make sure you have a flat iron that can get relatively hot (without scorching your hair). Install your clip-ins according to your preference of volume. Then begin by taking small sections of hair with each section containing some of your hair and some of the extensions. Flat iron through with a minimum of two passes. Have your flat iron to chase a comb down each section in order to minimize that amount of passes on your hair. By reducing the number of passes on your hair, you will decrease the risk of heat damage. Repeat this process all over your hair for a sleek and seamless look.

Curly Hair Goals

Get curly hair goals by using a curling wand to blend your colored hair and clip-ins. Decide which size barrel will compliment your style or mood. Once you have your curling iron on and ready to go, you will essentially repeat the steps above by taking small sections of your hair mixed with the extensions and curling and blending them. I love this method because the colored and natural hair swirls within each curl. For more variety and texture, try using different sized curls all over your hair for a more natural look.

2. Braiding

Braiding is a perfect and easy way to blend your colored hair and clip-ins. There are tons of braiding styles and techniques all over YouTube that inspire you. Here are two of them to blend your colored hair:

Halo or Crown Braid

The beautiful part about this braiding style is that it does not have a lot of parts in the hair that may allow a clip-in track to peak through. After you have installed your clip-ins to your preference, split your hair in half. This does not require you to part your hair, only to separate it. Clip down one half of your hair and with the other half, starting from the back of the neck, begin braiding while adding small sections of hair at a time. You want the tension to be downward and a moderate length to the head. You do not want your braid too tight, because it will look forced and unnatural. (Remember halo and crown braids are to look ethereal and effortless). However, you are do not want your braids to be too loose, which can cause them to come undone. Find your happy medium and braid all the way around your head until you return to the back of your neck on the other side. Secure the end with a bobby pin pinned underneath the beginning of the braid. Your crown should have a gorgeous swirl of color that adds a bit of edge to your overall look.

French or Dutch Braids

For a super adorable way of blending your hair, look no further than to French or Dutch braids. Again, this style does not require you to part your hair, but only to separate your hair in half. The braiding technique for both French and Dutch braids are very similar. The only difference is that with French braids, the hair that you add will overlap over the centerpiece of hair versus Dutch braids' added hair will underlap. With both methods, you will set one half of hair to the side and begin at the front of the head with the other side, braiding close to the scalp along the side of the head. Fasten the ends with a hair tie, bow, or a simple rubber band. For the braiding method, it is probably best to secure your clip-ins more toward the inside of your hair rather than the edge so that your hair can look natural.

3. Updos & PonyTails

Updos are a great way to camouflage different colored hair. My favorite styles to use are the ponytail and the Half Updo. With the ponytail, you want to situate your clip-ins to be closer to the center of your head rather than on the edge to avoid any peek-a-boos. Brush and gather all your hair together and secure it at the back of your head with a hair tie. The height of the ponytail is up to you. Since you are using the versatility of clip-ins, you do not have to worry about not being able to rock that Beyonce’ famous high ponytail or a low ponytail for work. Another way is the half up, half down style. Start by adding in your clip-ins at the top of your head and split your hair in half horizontally. Put the top half in a high ponytail. Afterward, continue to add clip-in pieces underneath the part separating the updo portion of the hair. Easy! You are ready to go with a color combination that is fierce and flawless.

4. Set Styling

Set styling is a great option to blend your colored hair with your clip-ins. With the variety of roller sets (Check out this article: roller set natural hair) and flexi rods in numerous styles, sizes, and materials, the options are endless. Unless your hair is naturally curly and your clip-ins are not (remember what we mentioned about ease earlier?), install your clip-ins and lightly spritz your hair. Choose your roller style and size and take small sections of hair, which contains both your colored hair and the non-colored clip-in, and begin to roll the hair over the rollers. Repeat this process all over your hair. From here, you can air dry your hair or sit underneath a hooded dryer to speed up the process. Once your hair is completely dry, carefully unroll each set. Primp and fluff each curl until your liking. Special Note: If you do have curly hair, try using a spray that does not contain water. That way to can use this tip without worrying about your curls reverting.

5. Twist Out

A twist out on your hair will seamlessly blend the two (or more) colors and give you bouncy curls without the heat. This method is best for those that have curly to kinky hair along with curly or kinky clip-ins. To begin, install your clip-ins, then dampen both your hair and the clip-ins. Using your favorite leave-in conditioner and curling pudding, add them all to your hair. Working with small to medium sections, split each section in two and begin twisting from the root to the end of the hair. Swirl the end around your finger a few times to ensure the twist is secure and will not unravel. Repeat this process all over the head. Afterward, you can either air dry or sit underneath a hooded hair dryer. When your hair is dry, put a small amount of oil in your hands and begin carefully untwisting each twist from the end to the root. Separate, fluff and primp to desired look and volume. Your clip-ins are now completely hidden within your voluminous hair.

6. Buns

Much like the ponytail, buns can blend your clip-ins and also add a level of sophistication to any look. Hello, Misty Copeland! Concentrate the majority of your clip-ins to the center back of your head. Brush and pull your hair to the back and add your favorite bun doughnut to your ponytail and secure. Again, you have the freedom to choose the height of your bun. I love the ombre look of this style, which adds some fire to a simple and elegant look.

7. Headwraps

The last style is the handy and always trendy headwrap. Headwraps come in a variety of sizes, styles, colors, prints, and their uses are endless. Here are two ways to turn heads in your headwrap.

Front Wrap

This style is easy and perfect to cover up any harsh demarcation lines that may prevent your style from looking anything less than perfect. Begin by installing your clip-ins and brushing your hair toward the back of your head. Feel free to add a bit of styling product to your hair, but only a small amount. With a long head wrap (instead of a wide one), place the wrap underneath your hair at the base of your neck. Pull both ends up toward the front of your head and start wrapping, focusing mostly on the front part of your head. Tie the access ends in the back to secure it. Now you have a wrap that helps conceal any areas that may not blend properly with your clip-ins. Bonus points for a wrap that has a bright and funky pattern. You can even use a bandana and tie the ends on the top of your hair for a rad retro vibe.

Bow Down

Since head wraps and clip-ins are extremely versatile, when you put them together, you get an endless plethora of style to rock on any given occasion. One of my favorite pairings is the ponytail and a long enough head wrap to tie a bow at the top. With my clip-ins, I style a ponytail that is in the center of the back of my head. Then with the headwrap starting from the back, I pull the ends forward and tie a huge bow on the top of my hair. This style is simple, carefree and perfect for those summer days when you are desperate to get all of your hair off of your neck.

You’re Flawless!

Clip-ins are absolutely perfect for changing up your hairstyle, adding length or volume. Now that you have these amazing hairstyles in your arsenal, you never have to feel stuck when you want to blend your colored hair and non-colored clip-ins. You are free to color your hair knowing that you have all the tools to create a hairstyle that keeps everyone guessing the double-taps endless! I love the mismatch of colors because it gives any look a bit of edge and a DIY ombre without having to go through the trouble of actually dying your hair. Which of these styles was your favorite? What are your go-to styles for blending your clip-ins? Let’s keep the conversation going in the comment section so we can help each other out with flawless hair!

Fake it Up: Top 10 Faux Hairstyles With Clip-ins

Clip-in Life

Since I am currently rocking my twa aka teeny weeny afro, I am always looking for ways to switch my hairstyle up without having to commit long term. I have a problem with a very itchy scalp, so I try to avoid any style that doesn’t allow my scalp to breathe. I get so excited when I work with my natural hair and see the curls becoming more defined as I style it.
Since I enjoy styling my hair, clip-ins are an excellent alternative for some reasons. Below are a few reasons why I love clip-ins:
  • Easily installed and removed
  • Available in different widths to provide versatility in styling
  • Easy to maintain and store
  • Can be colored, so you don’t have to dye your hair
  • Easy on your hair and are less damaging
  • Add volume and height to your hairstyle

How to Make your Clip-ins

I think making your own is a great way to get more use out of thin wefts.

By doubling the wefts and making them into clip-ins, you get the styling flexibility you are desiring.

Why Clip-In Extensions Are the Best for a Quick Hairstyle Change!

Why Clip-In Extensions Are the Best for a Quick Hairstyle Change!

Clip-Ins Are the Best!

Wigs and sew-ins are excellent forms of hair extensions, but the best form of hair extensions that truly stand out are clip-in hair extensions. Why? They are quick to install and quick to remove. They can be used for a short amount of time, low maintenance, and you can match with your hair.

What Are Clip-In Hair Extensions?

Clip-In hair extensions are small to larger pieces of hair wefts that are attached to snap-comb hair clips. They come in different types of hair textures and colors that match your hair--from blonde bone straight to black-brown 4c curly hair. They have been named the most accessible enhancement and the easiest way to install hair by many beauty industries. Clip-in hair extensions give you a short-term desired hair which can include but not limited to longer hair, more volume, and if wanted more color.

Benefits of Clip-In Extensions

There are many benefits to clip-in extensions. We have compiled six reasons why clip-ins are the best form of hair extensions and why Private Label Hair Extensions are the best choice of extensions for your next clip-ins.

Quick and Easy

Adding in clip-in extensions are very quick and easy, and they are in and out your hair in minutes. Probably faster than putting on your makeup. It's just like adding the cute hair bows you used to wear as a toddler. First, find the desired hair clip you want, then section off a part of your hair. Third, grip the clip under the sectioned off hair, then snap close the clip. And, there you go--you've added more hair that has created volume, length, and color that has changed your look.
Jen Atkin, an influential hairstylist, told Cosmopolitan...
"I use clip-ins for the majority of my clients because they're easy. Just tease your hair at the roots where you want to place them, spray a little hairspray there and on the clips to help ensure a tight grip and fasten them down into your hair."

Short term

There are many different reasons why people always change their hairstyles. One could be that we get bored easily, or we always want our hair to fit the environment that we're in. Another great thing about clip-in hair extensions is that it is possible for it to be 100% temporary. That's right. You don't have to wear that long, voluminous hair you did for that Saturday gala at work on Monday. Taking them in and out whenever you want is the best feeling when you want your hair to work with your schedule. We like to change our looks and styles, and clip-ins make it that easy. Rock different looks when you want to.

Less Maintenance

Clip-ins are the best alternative to installing hair extensions other than the use of glue and thread for sew-ins. Why? It's less maintenance. With wigs and sew-ins, you will have to perform full maintenance to keep the hair fresh and healthy. It's easier to maintain clip-ins because they are easier to wash and care for. As mentioned before, clip-in hair extensions can easily be removed. One--it's not attached to the head for an extended period. Two--the hair will not accumulate oils and dirt as quickly as other hair types such as wigs and sew-ins.

Matches Your Hair Type

Clip-in hair extensions can match your hair to enhance the way your hair looks to create a thick and voluminous style. Private Label Extensions have many silky straight clip-in extensions that can add 20-inches to your hair that you can quickly clip-in. Their clip-ins can be styled and manipulated to match your hair--straight, curly, or wavy. Private Label Extensions also have 4C Hair Natural Clip-In Extensions that are great for achieving natural styles such as blow-outs and twist-outs. These clip-ins can be dyed and colored to match your hair color.
From an interview with Refinery, Kerry Washington's hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew stated:
"I haven't given Kerry a weave in over ten years..." Do I do clip-ins? Yes. When you see her straight, long, short, or with color — those are clip-ins. I do play around with wigs, but I haven't given her a weave in a long time. I'm all for the look being natural."

Easily Add Highlights

A way of adding highlights or lowlights to your hair is installing clip-in hair extensions. Adding pieces of colors without permanently coloring your hair is a reason why clip-ins are the best form of hair extensions. Highlights are strands of hair colors that are lighter than your natural hair color and lowlights are strands of hair colors that are darker than your natural hair color. Depending on your mood, you can install clip in that are outside your hair color range for an out-of-the-box look. Private Label Extensions clip-ins is 100% human hair, and it comes in a variety of colors to choose from, and they can be dyed any color you desire.
