Today, we are breaking down everything you need to know about clip in hair extensions.

Clip in hair extensions are loved by beginners and experts alike. They are perfect for an instant transformation without having to commit to the look on a long-term basis. Growing your hair out? No problem, clip in extensions also make a perfect way to switch up your style without waiting months for your hair to grow. Whether you are switching up your hairstyle with length and extra volume or looking for ways to add highlights to your hair with hair extensions this blog will help you understand which will be best suitable for you.

The classic full head hair extensions

Clip in Hair Extensions classic full head

This set is perfect for thickening up hair of the same length rather than adding more length. For anyone  who wants to create alot more length, a double weft or supreme quad weft is perfect, the classic full head set should only be used to thicken up or add maximum of two inches length. It's great for customer with extrememly thin hair that are worried about adding too much weight as its our most lightweight full head set.

Our classic full head set contains a total of eight different sized wefts, complete with metal clips pre-attached (no more than 3 clips per weft) – so all you’ll have to do is clip each one of those eight wefts to your hair and you’ll be ready to style and go! The wefts come in different sizes so you can fit them to the shape of your head – providing an even coverage and concealing where your natural hair stops, and where the extensions begin.

Remember hair extensions come in a variety of weights. The standard weight for a full head of extensions is 120 to 130 grams of hair dependant on length. So, the longer the hair, the more it will weigh. If you have very thin, fine hair, then you may want to consider the shorter length, so the extensions don’t feel heavy on your head and appear more natural too.

The double weft clip ins

Clip in Hair Extensions

Double weft extensions are called this because they feature two wefts securely sewn on a single hair. One of the biggest benefits of getting double weft extensions is that you get double the volume of a classic full head set (single weft), and they also come with same number of clips as a regular single weft set.

Double weft clip in extensions are perfect if you’re looking to extra volume without having to fiddle with double the number of clips - though they can be used to create both length and volume. If you have fine hair, double weft clip ins will certainly give you the volume you want. For those with thicker locks, double weft extensions are a fantastic way to achieve a fuller, more glamourous look.

The standard weight for double weft hair extensions set is 180 to 200 grams of hair as they’re thicker and offer more hair.

Both the classic full head set and double weft set contain:

Two 8 inch (20cm) wide wefts - 3 clips per weft, two 6 inch (15cm) wide wefts - 3 clips per weft, two 4 inch (10cm) wide wefts - 2 clips per weft, and two 2 inch (5cm) wide wefts - 1 clip per weft

The quad weft

The quad weft is a thicker one peice which can be used on its own to create volume and a small amount of length. Can be used with any full head set as a add on to add extra volume.

The one-piece hair extension set which contains four strips of hair securely sewn onto one thick weft – giving you four times the volume on a single weft. However, this is not to be confused; the quad weft contains nearly as much as full head set, so if you want super thick hair extensions, you may want two sets, or the Supreme Quad weft to give you nearly as much thickness as a double weft set.
