How To Apply Clip In Hair Extensions

Hey you guys.  I made my very first video tutorial regarding my number one beauty secret on how to apply clip in hair extensions!!  (Well, I guess it's not a secret anymore.)  Lucky you, I like to share.


Warning:  These are very addictive.


A couple of things to point out regarding 
Clip-In Hair Extensions:
  1. The reason to buy clip-in's is to add length, thickness (or both) to your hair.
  2. You don't need long hair to do this.  You can very easily have short hair.
  3. Clip in hair extensions are affordable and for a good set, they run $75 and up.  They will last you at least 6 months to a year.  If not longer.  
  4. Never buy synthetic hair.  You only want 100% real human hair.  It looks natural.  Synthetic = Fake!!
  5. You can buy them at a beauty supply store, with the clips already sewn in.  I go to Paradise Beauty in Arizona.
  6. Clip-Ins can be washed, cut, colored (but only darker not lighter), blown dry, flat-ironed, and curled!  
  7. The color of your clip-ins does not have to match your own hair color exactly.  You will be surprised how easily it will blend in with what you have.
  8. Clip-in's are a low-maintenance and easy alternative to permanent hair extensions, which can be extremely damaging to the roots and shaft of your hair over extensive periods of wear.
  9. 7 hair pieces come in a standard pack.  There are three different sizes.  To keep track of which goes where, mark little dots in the area of where the clips are with a sharpie.  One dot for the clip that goes in at the nape of your neck.  Two dots for the clip that goes in second.  Three dots for the third clip.  And for the four side clips, write R(one dot), R(two dots) and L(one dot) and L(two dots).  Don't know what I'm talking about?  Watch the video!
If you have any other questions, please email me at runningonhappiness@gmail.com or leave a comment below and I'll try my best to answer them! 




I've been getting lots of questions as to what brand I use, the kind ini the video are made by Fashion Source.  The description of these extensions is 'STW 7PCS 14" F6/613'  Another great brand (which I don't know the exact name of but find a picture of it here).  Bottom line, just find some clip ins that have a 7 piece set and are made of real human hair.  I don't think you can go wrong!

ah I want some of these so bad! my sister wore them for her wedding, and I have wanted some ever since...

I have a feeling you are right about them being addictive though.

Oh also... where are your earrings from? I want big hoops also... it's my new obsession

Gertrude said...

Andrea said...

great video! i've never used extensions and have wondered about using them because my hair is so straight and fine. after watching you demonstrate how easy it is to put them in, i am going to give it a try. :)
your blog is becoming addictive :)

Megan said...

oh guess who used to wear clips in..uhm..every day? me. And then my hair got way too long and they stopped blending well. I miss them.

Alyssa said...

i possibly giggled this entire video at your adorable accent- americans make me laugh!

Clip in extensions always scared me a little, but now i can see they are actually do-able and you can brush them?!!! awesome!!

The Whitfields said...

Oh this is such a great video! I've been wanting to get some because my hair is in the in between stage of growing out long.

Where is the best place to buy them from?

SaRaH said...

you are inspiring and refreshing and wonderful :) thanks for making me smile on a frigid midwest Wednesday!

Lula said...

Holy smoke they are SO perfect on you wowowow, I really want to get extensions, but the clip-ins won't work if I go to the beach/pool etc so I was kinda looking for the glue ones. I know I know, they're not THE best for hair but I saw some oil-based glues that aren't as damaging as other glues. Nothing my hair can't handle! Those extensions you have blend oh so perfectly with your hair. My main concern is that I have ombré hair and I don't want to get only BLONDE extensions but the color of yours look seriously PERFECT for my hair. I hope they have some like that at Sally's! Hope you don't mind if I email ya later with a billion questions but you kinda look like a pro. And oh.my.gosh you are gorgeousness.

love, kate said...

i used to wear these all the time when my hair was short!!!! i like the color you had it looked great with your real hair!

Finley said...

Your video is really well done! I'm in that horrible in between stage of growing out my hair (see here) so maybe I can try this in the meantime! Do they come in different lengths or do you cut them yourselves? I need to check it out...

I used to wear clip-ins all.the.time! Except I made them lol I was broke so I bought hair and the clips and just sewed them together. They lasted a long time. My hair has grown out but I been thinking of making new ones.

What's with the background panting noises? Is someone that excited by extensions.

When I have my extensions in, it makes my head itch... I'm not sure if it's the particular kind of extensions I have or if it's normal?

Luce said...

Super!!! Je pense réellement m'en acheter. Mes cheveux poussent tellement lentement...

Stacey said...

I know I'm behind on your blog but I was looking through your tutorials. Gosh you are beautiful. I am dying for extensions & you make them look perfect but everyone keeps telling me I'll look "hood" if I get them. I wish I could convince them. Oh well. Very cute video!
