Clip-In hair extensions have been an extension staple for a long time. They allow you to get the color and length you want without damaging your own hair. They’re also extremely popular because they are so easy to install, that you can do it yourself without any tools or special education necessary. All you’ll need is your clip-in set, a rat-tail comb to part your hair, clips to put your hair up and a brush to blend the extensions with your hair. Small elastic rubber bands are optional for a stronger hold.
Section & Prepare for Install
Start off by using the end of the rat-tail comb to part a 1-inch section of your hair at the nape of your neck. If you have fine or silky hair, try backcombing small sections of your hair where the clips will be placed. You can also create small ponytails with the rubber bands to give the clips a strong base to hold on to. These tips will prevent your clip-ins from sliding out of place.
Open the clips and secure them to the prepared sections of hair. The wefts will be secured once you hear (and feel) them snapping closed. To ensure a seamless blend between your hair and the extensions, be sure to brush the hair after each weft is installed. This allows for a smooth transition from your hair to the extensions that’s virtually undetectable!
Install Those Beautiful Tracks
We recommend using the smaller wefts at the top and sides of the head, the largest wefts at the crown (temple to temple), and the medium sized wefts at the nape of the neck. This placement will give you length as well as volume. Repeat the tips provided above to secure your wefts in place.
Blend & Style Your Hair
For the best possible blend, be mindful of your weft placement. Make sure that you place the clip-ins in areas where you have enough hair to fully cover the weft. You don’t want any wefts peeking through your hair! After installing the hair, be sure to style the hair as you normally would. Perfect Locks hair is 100% Remy human hair so it can withstand heat and be styled as desired for an outstanding look.
