How To Put In Hair Extensions

 

How to Make Clip-In Hair Extensions Look Natural

-Style your extensions and natural hair together

As mentioned styling, your extensions with your natural hair using a curling iron gives a more seamless, natural-looking appearance.

-Trim your extensions

Take your extensions to a professional. They will be able to trim and layer your extensions and your own hair to create a unified style that blends together perfectly.

-Select the right color for your hair extensions

For the most natural look, select a color that is similar to your own hair color. Typically, extensions that are up to 2 shades lighter or darker than your own hair will give a natural look. You can also dye your hair to better match your extensions, or, if you have human hair extensions, they can often be dyed or highlighted to blend better with your own hair. Make sure that you take your human hair extensions to a professional to be dyed, and note that dying extensions can potentially shorten their lifespan.

-Select extensions that are similar to your natural hair

For instance, if you have thin hair, select extensions that are on the thinner side, such as hair toppers If you have thicker hair, select thicker extensions. This will give the most natural look possible.
