The beauty of clip-in extensions is having the option to style your hair however you want in a fraction of the time. There’s really no right or wrong way to wear them, as long as you keep a few things in mind. First, you’ll want to find your texture and color your extensions, if necessary, to match your natural hair. Once you have that covered, there’s really just one more thing you’ll want to remember anytime you reach for your clip-ins… it’s all about the blend.
A great blend will make or break your style no matter how you plan to style your hair. Whether you’re aiming for a natural wash-n-go, a braid out or heat style, you shouldn’t be able to see where your hair ends and the extensions begin. That’s when you know you’ve done it right!
Here's 4 tips to get a seamless blend with Coil Curl Clip-ins:
Braid your natural hair down -- This will make the blending process much easier and faster because you’re working with a small amount of hair vs blending your entire head. Once your hair is braided down, the clip-ins can be installed in minutes.
Install clips around the perimeter first -- This is a great way to ensure you don’t feel like you’re “running out” of hair. This will help guide you and make sure your entire head is covered evenly.
Use a styling product -- When you’re using textured hair extensions that mimic natural hair textures, it’s important to use similar styling methods. Because the extensions are humidity resistant, you may want to go for a bit heavier holding product on your natural hair to prevent frizzing throughout the day.
Separate your curls + Fluff -- This will give your end style an even more natural look and help cover any wefts or tracks!
