A majority of women use hair extensions to add volume and length to their natural hair. However, that is not the sole use for hair extensions; as they can be used to experiment with different hairstyles and colours.
Of course, there are many kinds of hair extensions like tape-in, clip-in, sew-in, flip-in, micro link, fusion, I-tip, U-tip, and many others.
When choosing which type of attachment you need, you first need to consider what results you want. You have to decide if you want permanent or temporary hairstyle, real hair or synthetic hair?
You also have to think about your budget because the prices range from very low to very high. But generally speaking, high-quality hair extensions made out of real hair can be found at reasonable prices and there are many different styles to choose from.
What Are Clip-In Extensions?
Clip in hair extensions are one of the most popular attachment types. Clip ins are temporary and they are perfect for special occasions and nights out where you want quick results and easy applications.
You can apply them yourself which means you don’t have to bother going to the hairdressers.
What is the deal with the name? It is simply, the hair is attached to a clip, and that clip is placed on the head. These types of extensions come in what’s called wefts. They come in many different widths and lengths. You can put many of these wefts on your hair, attaching them to your natural hair.
The best thing about clips is that they are completely undetectable and nobody will ever notice that you’re using anything “unnatural”. If properly placed, they blend in with your hair, creating a very natural look.
For the best look, choose Remy hair. You can play around with different colours, lengths, create highlights, ombres, and many more.
What Is Ombre?
Ombre is a trendy hairstyle where one hair colour is gradually blended into another. It creates a natural transition between two or more colours.
Ombre is known as a hair colouring technique, but since it requires a lot of skill, many women are opting out for ombre extensions.
Ombre extensions come with an ombre effect, therefore, you don’t need to dye your hair.
The simplest way to get the popular hairstyle is to buy a tape or clip in ombre extensions and apply them to your natural hair; The process is straightforward and the results are amazing.
You can have the ombre hairstyle instantly, and there is no maintenance like with regular ombres. You can also experiment with many different colours without dying or damaging your hair.
When you get tired of your hairstyle, just take out the extensions or replace them with different ones.
They are also not very expensive, and the results are identical to that which you would get in a hair salon for triple the cost.
How To Apply Clip-in Extensions?
One of the best things behind this attachment type: you can apply them yourself! There is no need for going to a hairdresser’s and losing valuable time. With some practice, you can place all pieces in just a couple of minutes and remove them in just a minute.
That is why they are so popular and are used for an every-day look or for nights out and special occasions. You need at least shoulder length hair or longer for the best results.
To apply, first, you need to section the bottom layer of your hair. So section your hair a little bit above your ear, and start clipping the bottom half of your hair. Then section your hair about an inch above the first piece and add the second layer.
You can use two wefts that have three clips for this part. Now you can add the top layer, try to place them near the top of your hair. You can also use a couple of one clip pieces in a couple of places at the top of your hair.
But all of this depends on your hairstyle. Just make sure that you have a couple of layers that blend with your natural hairstyle and experiment to get the best results.
