How To Make Your Own Clip In Extension

 

 This is the perfect solution for those of you who want to change your hair length or volume, without a long-term commitment.Clip-in extension kits are fantastic but they can also be expensive so making your own is a great alternative. Below we will show you how to do it.

Step 1: Get your hair. To make clip-ins, you want to buy something called a weft. This is hair that has been sewn onto a track in one long piece. The quality of the hair you buy is really up to you. Generally the more you pay the better the quality of hair you get. (you can find a variety of different wefts on our website. http://www.purityhairsupplies.co.uk/index.php?route=product/category&path=20_67.

Step 2: Buy the rest of your supplies. You will need some sharp scissors, clips that match your Weft colour, a needle and thread, and measuring tape or a ruler. Make sure you get thread that matches the colour of the weft.

Step 3: Get all your materials together and you’re ready to start. You will be using your own head to measure the width you need so your Clip ins fit your head perfectly. Take your weft of hair out of the package and run a brush through it. Using the measuring tape, measure and cut the following pieces of hair: one 8″, one 6″, one 5″, and four 2.5″. You can cut additional pieces if you have thick hair – a few more 2.5″ pieces or another 6″ piece, or even 1″ pieces.

Step 4: Once your have your hair pieces cut, now it’s time to sew the clips on. Open a clip to make sure you know which way it faces – the comb part should face you and the base part should face the hair. Evenly space the clips on each section of hair – for the 8″ piece you should use four clips, three each for the 5″ and 6″ sections, and two each for the 2.5″ sections. If you chose to make 1″ pieces, those would take only one clip each. Sew through the weft and make sure the thread is tight and secure.
