INSTANT LENGTH AND VOLUME IN THIN HAIR

Bring back your youthful hair!

 We’ll  show you how to turn your new locks into loose waves, and we’ve included a short video to help you learn how to apply and style your extensions.

 

You don’t have to wait six months to have long hair!

If you’ve been trying to grow your hair it out a while, but you’re ready to flirt with long, romantic curls, we’ll show you how you can make it happen with clip-in hair extensions. BONUS: We’ll even show you how to turn your new locks into loose waves, and we’ve included a short video to help you learn how to apply and style your extensions.

We’ll be doing this in three parts: back of your head, sides of your head, and styling.

  • Your chin-length hair
  • 16-inch ESTELLE’S SECRET Chic Set Hair Extensions (pick a set that matches your hair color)
  • Hairbrush
  • 1 ½-inch curling iron

LET’S GET STARTED!

BACK SECTION

STEP 1: BRUSH YOUR HAIR

Give your mane a good brushing! You don’t want any tangles to get in the way of your working space when you’re clipping in your extensions.

STEP 2:DIVIDE AND CLIP

Divide the hair from ear to ear, and clip the top section to the top of your head.

*Make sure your line is clean and even. You’re going to be adding extensions here, and you want a straight part to work with. You’ll want to leave the bottom half of your hair down, so you can brush in the layers of extensions as you go.

Take the top portion of your hair, brush it up, and clip it to the crown of your head, away from where you will be adding the extensions. Make sure you don’t have strands hanging down the back of your head that will get in the way of adding your extensions.

*OPTIONAL: Spray some dry shampoo on your exposed roots to give your clips a better grip.

STEP 3: FIRST CLIP

Clip in your 16-inch-long 3-clip weft hair extension.

Start with the middle clip first, and then clip in the other two. You’ll want to make sure it’s right near the part, attaching it to the roots of the bottom section of your hair.

STEP 4:BRUSH!

This will volumize and blend the extension strands with your own bottom layer of hair.

STEP 5:ADD YOUR HAIR

Divide the hair from temple to temple, and clip the remaining top section of hair to the top of your head.

Taking from your clipped portion of hair, make a clean divide from temple to temple. Take the top portion of your hair, brush it up, and clip it to the crown of your head, away from where you will be adding the extensions. Make sure you don’t have strands hanging down the back of your head that will get in the way of adding your extensions.

*OPTIONAL: Spray some dry shampoo on your exposed roots to give your clips a better grip.

STEP 6: TIME FOR THE NEXT CLIP

Clip in your 16-inch-long 4-clip weft hair extension.

Start with the middle two clips first, and then clip in the other two. You’ll want to make sure the top of the extension is right near the part, attaching it to the roots of the bottom section of your hair.

STEP 7: BRUSH AGAIN!

Seeing a pattern here yet? Part, clip, brush, repeat! Again, this will blend in the bottom sections of your extensions with your natural hair and minimize tangles and snags. Bonus—it’ll add some of that volume we all love.

STEP 8: MORE HAIR PLEASE

Divide the hair from brow to brow, and clip the remaining top section of hair to the top of your head.

Taking from your top portion of hair, make a clean divide from brow to brow. Take the top portion of your hair, brush it up, and clip it to the crown of your head, away from where you will be adding the extensions. Don’t leave strands hanging down the back of your head!

*OPTIONAL: Spray some dry shampoo on your exposed roots to give your clips a better grip.

STEP 9:CLIP, CLIP, CLIP!

Clip in your 16-inch-long 3-clip weft hair extension.

Start with the middle clip first, and then clip in the remaining two. Keep your clips in your exposed roots, right near the part line.

STEP 10:BRUSH IT ALL OUT.

Great! The back is all done now, and all that you’ve got to do now are the sides of your head.

SIDES

STEP 1: DIVIDE AND CLIP

Divide the hair above your brow, and clip the remaining top section of hair to the top of your head.

*Keep that line clean, and pile the top bunch of hair onto your head and clip it!

*OPTIONAL: You can dry shampoo your roots here for a better clip grip.

STEP 2:START CLIPPING!

Clip in your 16-inch-long 2-clip weft hair extension 1 inch from your hairline.

*You’ll want to make sure the edge of the weft is hidden by the front portion of your hair. Make sure it’s about 1 inch back from your hairline.

STEP 3:BRUSH IT OUT

STEP 4:ADD YOUR HAIR

Divide the hair 1/2 inch above the weft, and clip the remaining top section of hair to the top of your head.

Make that a straight and clean line, and then clip what’s left on top.

*OPTIONAL: You can dry shampoo here (if you’ve been doing that) for a better grip.

STEP 5:ADD ANOTHER CLIP

Clip in your 16-inch-long 2-clip weft hair extension 1 inch from your hairline.

STEP 6: BRUSH IT OUT!

REPEAT STEPS 1 THROUGH 6 ON THE OTHER SIDE.

BONUS: LOOSE WAVY HAIR!

Using a 1 ½-inch curling iron and working in 1-inch sections of hair, roll the section around your curling wand. Start at the base of your hair and the base of the iron, wrapping the hair loosely around the wand out towards the tip. Release the curl into your hand and let it cool down before releasing it.
