How to apply clip-in hair extensions

New to clip-in hair extensions? Wondering where to start? Or are you just looking to switch it up a bit and see how other ladies are doing it? Because we all get curious, right?

Here, we’ll talk you through how to get started with clip-in hair extensions. From sectioning and teasing to stacking and placing your wefts, we’ve got you covered. We’ve even had the lovely Alex create a video to demonstrate just how it’s done!

So, to start off, you’ll need to get all your equipment together.

You’ll need:

Once you’ve got your equipment together, you’re ready to start separating your hair into sections.

Sectioning

It’s easiest to start at the bottom and work your way up towards the top of your head so the first section you’ll need to create will be at the nape of your neck. This is where your expertly positioned mirrors come in handy.

Starting about an inch above where the hair finishes at the neck, “draw” a line across the back of your head by running your tail comb (or pencil tip) from the bottom of one ear to the other, scooping up the hair above the line as you go and securing it on top of your head with a clip or bobble. The hair that is left below is your first section. How easy was that?

Teasing

Now it’s time to tease. If you have quite thick, coarse or curly hair you might be able to skip this step but if you have any other hair type this part is pretty important as it helps gives the clips something to grip to. 

To tease your first section, simply hold the hair in one hand, place your comb or teasing brush about an inch or two from the root and comb towards the scalp a few times. Do this all along the section you have created and then spray with a little hairspray.

Stacking your wefts

When trying to fit all of your wefts on your head, it can be tempting to keep adding wefts higher and higher up the head. But this runs the risk of leaving you with not enough hair left on top to cover the topmost wefts.

If you have this problem, stacking your wefts will make life so much easier. To “stack your wefts” basically means to clip two wefts together and apply them as you would a single weft.

To do this, simply take two wefts that are the same width and clip one to the other. This gives you the thickness of two wefts whilst taking up the scalp space of one weft. 

What’s that you say? Witchcraft?! No, no, just a handy little tip from Miss Alex Beauty

Clipping your wefts in

Take your first weft (or stacked weft if you’ve practiced the witchcraft above) and simply clip it into the teased roots of your first section. 

Yep, it’s that easy. You could probably train your annoying little cousin to do it for you...or a monkey. Yeah, I’d rather have the monkey too.

And repeat

You just need to keep repeating this process, creating sections about an inch or two apart, until you reach the point just below your temples. We could talk your through this part but it would involve saying things like “clip one of the one clip wefts about one inch back from the hairline at your temples” and that’s just going to get confusing!

So we’ll let Alex show you how it’s done. Her video is much nicer to look at anyway!
