Hair Clips & Extensions

Before Clips/Extensions

No doubt everyone would agree that clip in hair extensions look fantastic! It’s an instant makeover without the need to wait months for your hair to grow, if it grows to the desired length at all. The beauty about clip in hair extensions is that you can go from short to long and back in an instant!

The hair extensions are simply attached by hair clips. Normally, you would section off a part of you natural hair horizontally and attach the hair clips at the top of the section break. The hair clips in quality hair extensions are micro sized so they won’t protrude through your natural hair. The hair clips remain hidden, making your new longer fuller hair look like you’ve just spent hundreds at the salon.

Airplane Security?

A word of warning about hair extensions on an airplane though; some hair clips have been known to pop up in the airplane security check. How disconcerting, trying to explain to the airplane security personnel that the beep was merely caused by the hair clips in your hair extensions. How even more embarrassing trying to show the security your hair clips and that your gorgeous mane was created by hair extensions. It’s not like you could hide a pair of scissors under your hair to sneak on the airplane. But unfortunately, we all must abide by security measures whether we like it or not.

Who knows, perhaps the attention you get from the security staff about your well styled beautiful hair might attract some other wanted attention later on in the airplane.

In any case, if this is a huge issue for you, then you should inquire with your specific salon or extensions supplier as to whether there would be any airplane security check issues with the particular piece you bought or wish to buy.

If you do end up getting sprung with hair extensions at the security check, whatever you do, don’t panic. Simply tell the personnel that you have hair extensions and that the hair clips might be what’s causing the security alert beep. If security demand to see the hair clips and you don’t feel comfortable undoing your hair extensions in front of all the airplane passengers then politely ask if they could take you somewhere private. Although, this might not be a possibility at some airports. Don’t worry too much, it happens more often than you think and you wouldn’t be the first!

Without a doubt, the splendour and exquisiteness hair extensions can provide clearly override any risk of having to show your covert styling to airport security. Even if you do have to show security where your hair clips are, it’s still worth it just to have that glamorous hair that hair extensions provide. And men, being the plain unfussy creatures that they are surely won’t mind. Hair extensions make you look gorgeous, that’s all that matters to them. Just take a look at the before and after black hair extensions photos, I’m sure any man would go for the woman with hair extensions, even if it is simulated styling.

There are so many possibilities with hair extensions and the transformation that takes place is amazing and always pleasing. Many salons and sellers can provide an exact match to your natural color (or the color that you wish). The makeover is so easy with the undetectable hair clips.

Even if you get textured hair extensions such as curly or wavy hair extensions, not much matching work is required for the hair to look real. The same goes for other styled extensions and pieces like braid hair extensions, a contrast in your hair texture is always a nice touch. Another way to contrast is by color. Colored hair extensions such as red or pink hair extensions and pieces are a great way to stand out without the need to dye your hair for the occasion.

After Extensions Attached

If your hair is frizzy, then you will still need to style your hair before leaving it out with your hair extensions in place. Unfortunately, the texture won’t match. Hair extensions which attach by hair clips require you to de-frizz the hair. You can do this with a straightener or some de-frizz lotion. Other than that, not much molding or shaping is required to match the natural flow of hair extensions.

So, how to chose between the different qualities of extensions? Needless to say, the more pricey hair extensions are usually better quality. If you want quality, go for “A” grade hair extensions. There is a difference. A grade hair extensions are made of real hair, they are soft, shiny, smooth and last longer. The lower quality hair extensions are harder to brush, maintain and style. Plus, you want you hair looking real, right?

Hair extensions which attach with hair clips (otherwise know as clip in hair extensions) have worked their way throughout the world, after they received much praise from the celebrities. There are so many different looks which you can create with hair extensions. Whether you’re after pop, funky, elegant, classy, sleek, quick fix, striking, graceful, sophisticated, casual, twirls and curls, twists, loops, locks, stripes, curly, wavy, straight, braids, and in whatever color, there are extensions out there for any body for any occasion.
