How to create a Kylie Jenner-inspired look using clip-in hair extensions

Love them or hate them, you can’t escape the Kardashians! And Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the infamous clan, is following in the footsteps of her older sisters and making her own media waves. We’ve watched her grow up in Keeping Up with the Kardashians but now, aged 19, she has her own hot cosmetics line, Kylie Cosmetics, and is the most viewed person in the world on Snapchat. We love her for her fearless style (which sees her experimenting with everything from flaming red cornrows to bright blue lippy), her rebel attitude, and her ever-dramatic love life.

Like all of her sisters, Kylie has a super sexy look – our favourite is when she’s rocking these gorgeous relaxed waves. And now the lovely Miss Alex has made a video to show you just how to keep up with the Kardashians and get the look yourself. Blue lippies at the ready everybody…

Before you get started, make sure you’ve got all your equipment to hand.

You’ll need

Ready? Let’s get to it girls!

Get prepped

Before you do anything else, you need to get your hair extensions clipped in. Our regular readers will be pros at this by now, but if you’re trying clip-in hair extensions for the first time (or just need a refresher) check out our great video from Alex which takes you back to basics. Then get back here to do the rest of your look!

Alex is wearing 20 inch extensions in shade 613, but you can use whichever shade suits your hair – or go for something a bit wild like Kylie! Once you’ve got your extensions clipped in, start brushing them through from the ends to get rid of any tangles.

Now take a comb and trace a line from the arch of one of your eyebrows up through your hair to create a perfect side parting.

Make some waves

Now it’s time to make those sexy waves. Grab your thick barrelled curling wand and a reasonably thick section of hair. Take your section, hold the wand behind it and wrap your hair around the wand. You want to wrap it in this direction every time so that all of your waves fall away from your face (check out the video to see how Alex does it).

Hold the hair on the wand for a few seconds and then release it. Make sure you don’t wrap it too tightly or hold it for too long. For this look we want loose waves, not bouncy curls! Repeat this process until you’ve curled all of one side of your hair.

Now repeat this process for the other side of your head, keeping that wand behind each section so the waves flow away from your face. If you have a lot of hair to curl on the larger side of your parting, just pin a top section out of the way and curl the underneath section first. Then let down the top section and curl that it the same way.

Brush them out

So now you should have a head full of gorgeous waves, but we just need to make them a bit looser and more tousled like Kylie’s. To achieve this, just take your brush and brush out your waves to get that laid-back ‘undone’ look. You can brush them out as much as you like until you’re happy with the effect.

Now add a bit of oomph to your style with some backcombing. Take small sections of the hair around your parting and add some volume by pushing your comb down towards the root. Then gently smooth it over with your brush and give everything a good spritz of hairspray to hold it in place.

Add some Kylie Jenner lip magic

And for the finishing touch…you’ve got to go blue! Whether you want to go for light turquoise shade or an intense sapphire one, apply some blue lippy (or get your hands on a Kylie Jenner lip kit if you can) to complete your look. Prepare to turn some heads among those waiting paparazzi!
