CLIP IN HAIR EXTENSIONS

What are clip in hair extensions?
Clip in hair extensions fall under the temporary style category. This means they are put in and then taken out on the same day of wear. Clip In hair extensions don't require a lot of hardcore hair knowledge and are quite easy to apply and learn how to apply for that matter. Our clip in hair extensions come with 9 weft pieces for ultimate volume and thickness. We have made our clip in hair extensions to be seamless and flat so when applying in your hair they are virtually undetectable, can last all day and easy to maintain. Application time can take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes depending on how quick and nifty your sectioning skills are. 

Clip In hair extensions are crazy versatile. You do almost ANY hair style with ease and zero problems. The beauty of clip in's is the factor of being able to transform your hair in less than 10 minutes. Add instant length and volume to your hair and see the noticeable difference straight away.

You'll find a lot of celebrity hairstylists as well as editorial stylists opt for clip in hair extensions over halos because of the placement versatility and the freedom to add more or less wefts for the desired thickness and volume.

HALO HAIR EXTENSIONS

What are Halo hair extensions?
Halo hair extensions are a one-step method that can be completed in under 5 minutes... quicker if you are super speedy naturally! Halo extensions come as one whole weft piece of hair that is sewn around a wire that comfortably sits around the crown of your head. Don't be alarmed when we say wire, it's a stretchy comfy nylon that sits on your head with no strain at all. You won't even know it's there. The purpose of the wire is to secure the hair piece to your hair and so it doesn't move throughout the day. All hair types will work with halo hair extensions however if your natural hair is bluntly cut, you may have difficulties blending the halo in. However, nothing a quick trip to your hair stylist can't fix.  

Halo hair extensions is another style that is extremely versatile but no where near as versatile as clip in hair extensions. Up styling is a lot more difficult to achieve when using halo hair extensions although not impossible. If up styling is something you're after, we recommend clip in hair extensions over a halo.

 PROS CONS
☆ Easy & quick application. 5 minutes tops! ★ Up styling is difficult to achieve
☆ Temporary style  ★ Not suitable for all activities such as swimming and intense sports.
☆ Adds instant length and thickness ★ Not suitable to sleep in
☆ Low maintenance  ★ Blending can be difficult if natural hair is bluntly cut as opposed to Clip In extensions
☆ Beginner to advance style
☆ Zero damage to your natural hair
☆ Comfortable to wear
☆ One weft piece to be applied
