Hooray! Your new Loxy’s Collection extensions have arrived and you’re ready to clip them in! With our simple steps below your hair will be looking fab in no time.
Just remember that if this is your first time wearing clip in extensions, the feeling can take a little getting used to! While it is a bit of a weird feeling for the first couple of tries, the clip ins should never be painful or pulling on your natural hair. If they are, re-clip the extensions until they feel comfortable.
Section your hair where you’d like to attach the clip ins. Since our clip in extensions come in a three piece set, we recommend one small section a few centimetres above the hairline at the nape of the neck, and then two larger sections above that which stretch further around the sides of the head. You want to ensure that the extensions aren’t clipped too far up towards the top of your head, where they might be more visible. As a general rule of thumb, your top clip should be no higher than the top of your ear or just above.
If you’d like a super secure grip, gently backcomb the root area where you’ll be attaching the clips. You might also find that something like our Eleven I Want Volume Powder could add extra grip to the sections when applied to the area where you’ll be attaching the clips.
Pop open the clips, and working from the centre clip outwards, place the clips into the back combed section, and snap securely shut. Making sure that you angle the clip so that you are clipping enough hair to hold the extension securely without pulling.
Continue until all desired sections have been attached, and check that the clips feel secure, and that they’re not pinching or pulling. If they are, re-clip until they feel secure and comfortable.
Style your natural hair and extensions as required. Brushing gently through with a Tangle Teaser and then curling/straightening your natural hair along with the extensions will help to create a seamless style.
It’s as simple as that! If you still feel that your Loxy’s Collection extensions are still not sitting quite right, you might find that having a hairstylist who is familiar with human hair extensions “blend”/trim your extensions will help to create the natural blend that you’re after. Of course our girls at Loxy’s Hair Boutique are experts with this, so if you’re in the Auckland region feel free to get in touch with us for an appointment!
