Anyone used clip in hair extensions?

A quick question - has anybody used clip in hair extensions? My hairdresser suggested them instead of traditional extensions but I'm not sure how easy they are to use or where to buy them from.



I have found this company on the web, has anybody had any dealings with them?

    me hun.! I wear them pretty much all the time .

    I find them easy to use .

    i buy my hair from the afro caribean shop near where i live.

    I buy the clips from sallys a hairdressing outlet and sew the hair on myself .



    I love them ,, they are great for bad hair days,, and they give you so much volume.



    i prefer the indian hair the texture is lovely. It comes in all lengths and colours.

    Im sure your hairdresser would show you how to use them , my friends and i are such a dab hand at putting them in ourselves!!

    I Will get my hairdresser to put them in on the day of wedding just so that my hair is sectioned evenly , good luck you can reinvente yourself with these things



    p.s i would advice that you go for real hair the synthetic stuff can look a bit plastic in phots j x ,



    GOODLUCK JULES

    Hi,



    I have used them on a few brides. They are great. I have some photos but dont want to post as we are not allowed to advertise on here. You wouldn't know the bride was wearing them.

    oooh lets see , its not advertising , we just want some ideas. id love to see any down doos youve done JULES X
  • Im getting married in may this year and planning on wearing them. I got real hair clip ins. You can buy them from Sallys or Salon services. Cause they're real hair you can colour them and curl or straighten them. They are so easy to use. I'm a hairdresser and lots of brides use them, and you would never know.
  • If youv got fine soft hair you might find they slide a bit. So best backcomb ur roots a bit so they cn grip more.

    It is not completely down but will give an idea of what they can look like. They were straight originally and I curled them with the GHD's,



    Hope they can help someone,

    hi there i am getting married in may also and i considered extensions as i want my hair up and its too short but i have been advised that it only needs to be shoulder length to wear up.



    however there is an indoor market in cardiff that sells all kinds of hair glue etc.. and they match up your colours perfectly.



    i asked for advice in a local college and the tutor has offered to use me as a demo for her students so it wont cost as much as going to a salon.
