Tutorial: How to install clip-in extensions?

What are clip-in hair extensions?

Clip-in hair extensions are hair wefts that come with multiple small clips. They can be easily installed within minutes by pressing down the clips. Clip-in extensions are a quick and safe method to add extra length, thickness, and volume without using glue, tape, or sewing to the natural hair.

Pros and cons of clip-ins:


Easy to install and take off: Clip-ins can be clipped in and taken out of your hair in only minutes. It's a smart choice for those who don't want to spend so much time styling hair.

Airy: Clip-ins are directly attached to your natural hair without a cap. Additionally, you can leave out a portion of natural hair to blend with the strands. It provides premium breathability to your scalp and natural hair.

Natural result: Clip-in hair extensions blend perfectly with your natural hair and create a natural illusion. 


It's not a suitable long-term bonding choice: Clip-ins are directly attached to the hair roots. They can add extra weight and pull on your natural hair. Which may lead to hair loss in the long run.

Can I put in clip-in extensions myself?

Sure, no problem. Clip-in extensions are easy to handle and install, even for a newbie. And there's no need to ask for assistance from another pair of hands at all.

How to clip in hair extensions?

In this part, we will show you a couple of different ways you can install and style clip-in extensions.


The first way is to leave your natural hair out.

Step 1: Section off a portion of your natural hair around your parting area to cover the weave. 

Step 2: Use a rattail comb to part your natural hair at the top of your nape horizontally. Pick up the shortest weft clip from the set. Install the clip-in weft across the section. Stick the clip in and press it down. And its clips close super easily. 

Step 3: Part your hair into sections and install the wefts row by row across the sections. Continue to clip in around your head until all your clip-in extensions are installed.

Step 4: Undo your leave-out hair and use a wide-tooth comb to blend the extensions with your natural hair. 

Step 5: And now you can style your hair as you like. You can apply a small amount of essential oil to add shine. Or you can use styling tools to straighten or curl the hair on low heat.


The second way is to braid your natural hair under the extensions. It protects your natural hair because it reduces the pressure and pulling. 

Step 1: Use some t-pins to fix the clip-in hair extensions on a foam head. And then pre-style the clip-ins as you desire. You can simply curl or straighten the hair to achieve the result you desire. 

Step 2: Section off a portion of your natural hair around your part and the hairline to leave out. Braid the rest of the hair into cornrows. You can use some clips to make your natural hair as flat as possible.

Step 3: Apply clip-in hair extensions row by row from the top of your neck to the top of your head. Continue to install the clip-in hair extensions until you reach the leave-out area in the front. 

Step 4: Undo your leave-out hairs and hide the weave of clip-in hair extensions. Apply some edge control to slick your hair back and lay down your baby hair. And then style the baby hair to make your hair look more natural. 


All clip-in extensions have been installed. It takes about 15 minutes. It's so easy to do this, all you need to do is just clip it on. No glue, no sewing. And you can complete the whole project by yourself at home.
