HOW-TO STEPS

1

Before—front. 

2

Before—back.

3

If you decide to use all 10 pieces of Hairdo's Clip-In line, here is a general guideline for how to section and position the extensions. 

4

Gather and detangle the hair. Then, using a rat-tail comb, create an ear-to-ear part in the nape area and secure the remaining hair with a duckbill clip.

5

Select a weft that fits in the size of the part, open the pressure sensitive comb clip and secure in place by combing onto the hair and snapping in.

6

Gather the hair and create another ear-to-ear part staying close to the previous section. If you’re using fewer pieces, you can take bigger sections.

7

Repeat Steps 5 and 6 working your way up to the crown.

8

Remember, if you use a smaller weft in a wide section, be sure to alternate from the left side to the right side when you move to the next section to keep the look balanced.

9

As you move toward the face, use the smaller hair pieces, always keeping the weft two fingers away from the hairline. Continue creating horizontal side sections above the ear and adding in the smaller wefts.

10

Once you reach the top of the head, be sure to leave enough hair around the natural part to conceal the wefts once styled. Then, blend your client’s hair with the extensions by brushing and styling the hair together.
