4 Quick Tips To Know Before Applying Clip-In Extensions

  1. When using clip-ins, visualize the style before creating it because the upstyle and placement of braids will determine where to apply the extensions.
  2. If braiding in the crown or high on the sides of the head, don’t apply clip-ins higher than the occipital bone to ensure they stay hidden.
  3. Shampoo the extensions before styling, but don’t condition them—this creates more grip.
  4. Use five to 10 wefts on shorter hair when the goal is to add length. Use three wefts to add fullness to already-long hair.
