I am elated to report about my newest hair accessory obsession. During my previous color appointment, I decided to try Pro Extensions clip-in hair extensions. None of the samples matched my hair very well, so my color had to be custom ordered. They finally arrived a few days ago… These are 100% human hair extensions shipped in from Africa. I met up with Jeanette, my fabulous stylist, on Saturday, and I literally cannot believe the difference.

 

Clipped in straight, I love the way they look. However, there’s an obvious differentiation between the two lengths of my hair, which is more of an edgy look. Curled is a very different story. Looks glamorous, natural, and straight up voluminous.

 

 

Please excuse my lack of makeup.

 

How do they work, you ask? When I arrived at the salon, I saw rows of hair laid out on a table (right). We pre-matched the color to a sample a few weeks ago (keep in mind, you can dye these if the color is too far off). The hair, which comes in a variety of length, width, and volume, is attached to an elastic band with clips for easy application. Jeanette brushed them out, partitioned my hair into sections, and lightly teased the root of my hair before applying. She gently clipped in each extension to its designated spot (5 in the back, 2 on each side) and texturized the ends of my natural hair to better blend with the Pro Lace. It took approximately 5 minutes (with her Stephanie tutorial included– I’m so slow to pick up beauty trends, it’s pathetic) to clip them all in, and voila–volume city!

 

Now, I have had extensions before, and I never wanted to try the clip-ins until Jeanette persuaded me… I had a preconceived notion that they’d be cheaper, fake-looking, and a waste of time in the morning. However, as a contender in Miss Florida with over-processed and damaged blonde hair, I had bonded extensions to increase volume. They looked fabulous and gave my hair amazing dimension, but were seriously painful. Every time I wet my hair, it was an automatic tear factory… the pressure on my scalp was borderline unbearable. I won’t lie; the clips-ins feel just as heavy, but you can avoid getting them wet if desired (which Jeanette highly recommends) and obviously remove them whenever they start to agitate your head, which is a luxury I didn’t have before. Also, the bonded extensions lasted around 3 weeks (with some incidents of falling out sporadically), and even though they technically can be put back in, the hair looked worn and tethered. Since the clip-ins are removed every night (especially if properly maintained), that won’t be the case for you. If you can’t already tell, I’m definitely a bigger fan of the clip-ins! Oh, and the clip-ins are less inexpensive.

Again, mine were custom ordered, but you can find something very similar from the same brand, called Pro Extensions, online here. They’re reasonably priced for the quality (around $75 for 7 pieces) and do wonders for your hair, especially if it’s flat or damaged. The fact that I can clip these babies in and out for a different look in under 5 minutes makes me one happy lady. Be sure to read the directions and information about care and maintenance for optimal results andpreservation, since they are an expensive accessory.

 

 

Pageant hair in under 5 minutes? Mind blown, I’m obsessed. Does anybody else have any extension tips or advice? Please share!

    Donโ€™t limit yourself to just adding style to your hair. Hair extensions offer a simple solution to fine hair and can add a little pizzazz to thick, curly or wavy hair in any color or style. The beauty industry recognized the demand for instant natural looking hair and thus todayโ€™s hottest trend was bornโ€“natural hair extensions.

    They look great! It adds a lot of volume to your hair! I have had extensions for my wedding and loved them. I usually stick ti medium length hair but for that much volume I might consider it! Great review!
    XO And MIAMI sounds AWESOME!

      I bet it looked gorgeous! I did the same with my blonde extensions (they were primarily for volume since my hair was so damaged), but these add length more than anything. And I know, I'm so excited.. ahh! Happy Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love them! I just started wearing mine and I cut them because my natural hair is short. I really like having the different styles I could normally never do with my hair because its so damaged and naturally thin.

    I guess my tip would be that clip ins definitely look better in darker hair. In my blonde, you can see right through. And then when the roots grow out you can see the light clip against the dark hair.

    Otherwise, I love them.

    They look great on you, btw!

      Hey Shauna! I had the same issue with my bonded blonde extensions… you could totally see them, especially when they started losing their adhesive. I guess that's one perk to being a brunette (I miss my blonde hair so much!). Thanks for the tip! Happy Tuesday!

      Thanks, Kim! I have the same issue, and while this style is obviously curled, the extensions straightened add what feels like a second head of hair. I love them! Have a fabulous weekend!
