For the most natural look, we used one hundred percent human hair in a shade slightly lighter than our natural color to mimic highlights. The extensions come in a range of colors and can be washed, heat styled, and cut for a tailored look.
We used 9 Piece Clip In Extension Set since our goal is to add volume. The pieces come with a subtle wave to blend in with our natural hair texture. Wash the extensions like you would your natural hair, laying them out flat to dry.
You’ll work from the bottom up, so start by sectioning off your hair and securing most of it at the top of your head. If your hair is freshly washed, be sure to add some grit to your roots by using a dry shampoo before adding hairspray to the roots. This will give the clips more hold so they won’t slide out. Section the hair off in small pieces and use a backcomb to tease the roots where the clips will be. The hair pieces have either two or three clips (very small pieces for filler have only one). Start with a clip that has three combs on it, making sure to open all the combs. Attach the clip where you’ve backcombed by sliding it into the teased area from the top and snapping the clips shut. Make sure to get the edge of the hair piece as close to your scalp as possible. Once you’ve attached a piece, let down an inch width of hair to attach more pieces to. Spray the roots of that section with hairspray as well for more hold. Once again, backcomb the hair at the roots, paying extra attention not to disturb the piece that has already been clipped in. Secure the next hair piece as before. Place the side pieces above the ear making sure to keep the clips back far enough so that they won’t be visible once you’ve let your hair down (a good guideline is to not place them in front of you ear).
It’s okay if the pieces overlap with each other, just be sure to clip onto your hair, not the extensions. Once you’ve added all the pieces, take the remaining hair on top of your crown and section it off to be backcombed. This will add more texture to the hair and hide the pieces better. Backcomb from the middle of the top of your head back, into the extensions. Once you’ve backcombed the top section of your hair, spray with hairspray to ensure it stays all day and keeps the extensions camouflaged. Since the extensions are made of human hair, you can use any product or heat tool on them so that they blend in with your natural hair. The extensions give a natural, voluminous look to your hair.
