So, you want those summer highlights but you can’t afford fusion extensions. What do you do??!!!
Clip-in extensions are always going to be “the next best thing” when it comes to highlights when compared to bleaching or fusion. They are the cheapest and fastest way to give yourself a mini-makeover. Simply part your hair and clip on the extension! That’s it!
Making your own clip-in extensions is also as easy as 1, 2, 3! Here are the steps to making a new you in less than 30 minutes.
Step #1: Using a bundle of weaving hair, cut the weft in lengths you will need to create your clip-ins. You can make them as short as 1″ or long enough to go from ear to ear just below your crown.
Step #2: Using the 2 holes at the end of each comb pin, sew the comb pins to the wefts using a needle and thread (be sure the thread matches the color of the hair!) . For longer wefts be sure to add more than just 2 comb pins on the each end. There should be at least one comb pin every 3″-4″ of weft length.
Step #3: CLIP THEM IN!! Move them around until you have found the perfect location for your extensions.
Clip-in extensions are available in solid colors however there are several 2-color blends as well. This is a good way to add more “depth” to your highlights with the clip of a pin.
