How To Use Clip-In Bangs
Do you want to try a front-fringe without the added commitment?
Rather than going for the big chop, there are a number of clip-in hair pieces which are easily blend-able, and look flawless when used in the correct way.
If you’re thinking about changing your look, read these tips to make your hair look perfect for any occasion.
1. Start with freshly washed and dried hair which has little or not product at the roots. If you do want to make the process easier, straighten your hair with a pair of wands.
2. You may need to trim the bangs before applying them, so use a small pair of scissors and lightly cut the hair at an angle.
3. Most bangs will have 2-3 clip in points which make it really easy to grab onto your existing hair. Position the extensions firstly in the centre of your parting, and clip onto the middle of your head.
4. Simply pin down the other two sides, making sure to have enough hair on each side. If the piece does feel a little loose, use a bobby pin to discreetly lock it into place.
5. To disguise any thick tracks, create a milkmaid braid and secure with a few extra bobby pins. Not only does this make the hair look natural, but it’s also a stylish way to wear your hair!
- Most clip-in pieces are made from human hair, so wash, dry, and take care of them as you would your own. Don’t apply too much heat, and be sure before cutting them – they won’t be growing back!
- If you have highlights, take the fringe to your hair dresser and they will sort out the colour for you. This won’t be a major concern if you have balayage or two-tone hair.
- If your hair is synthetic, don’t use too much product on it. It will most likely damage the hair, and will set you back in the long term.
- Clip-ins are only temporary! If you find yourself wearing this style on a daily basis, why not get the trim? It’s much more easier to manage.
