Inspiring Before and After Hair Extension Transformations
Nano Ring Hair Extensions Before and After
@bymayahair uses 3 packs of shade 30 Light Auburn 18” Nano Rings to add both length and thickness to her client’s fine hair. As you can see, the result is absolutely stunning and looks incredibly natural due to the tiny size of the nano strands. Nanos are perfect for anyone with thin or fine hair who struggle to hide larger extensions; they are also the most gentle and lightweight permanent extension method causing zero damage to the natural hair.

Tape Hair Extensions Before and After
In this transformation, the customer's hair is already quite long but the ends have started to thin out, @hairextensions.byamy uses 2 packs of jet black 24” tape extensions to add volume back into the mid-lengths and ends of the hair as well as adding 3-4” of luscious length! The result is healthy, shiny-looking gorgeous hair that will last up to 6-8 weeks before needing maintenance. Tape In Hair Extensions are perfect for customers with fine hair who like to wear it mostly down, the application is super quick and easy taking half the time to apply compared to ring methods.

Weave Hair Extensions Before and After
How beautiful is this transformation by @weave_boutiquehair ? They used a 20” double-drawn Remy Royale weave in the shade Ice Blonde to enhance the thickness and length of her client's hair whilst keeping the transition seamlessly natural. Weaves are the ideal permanent hair extension to use for lots of volume and length on average hair types, they are also super quick and easy to apply and remove. If you like to wear your hair up but want to use the voluminous weave, you should consider combining this extension method with micro-rings or nano hair extensions. Our blog “Combining hair extensions” explains how this is done.
Micro Ring Hair Extensions Before and After
Micro rings or I-Tip hair extensions are the perfect type to use when you want to add volume and only 1-2” of length to the hair. @crihannahair_ perfectly demonstrates the impact that just 100g of I-Tips can have on the hair, using 20” in shade 1B Natural Black to bulk out the thickness at the ends and add a natural length boost. I-Tips or micro rings are an extremely cost-effective extension method as they can be reused again and again providing the quality is still intact.
Choosing the Perfect Clip-In Hair Extensions
For a more instant transformation that requires zero help from a stylist, Clip-In hair extensions are the top choice! They can be applied in the comfort of your own home, by yourself in a matter of minutes and styled along with your own hair. Here at Cliphair we have a wide variety of 9 clip in types to suit any hair type or concern, they come in over 60 shades and 7 lengths from super long to short and chic.
Seamless Clip-In Hair Extensions Before and After
In this video @kimannesley.hair shows us how clip-ins can be used not only to add length and volume but also to create stunning hair up looks. Clip-ins are used all the time in bridal styling as they provide the right amount of hair to achieve certain styles that may not be possible without them. This clients hair is too short naturally to create this look so the stylist has cleverly placed Seamless hair extensions into the bun to create the shape and style which can then be removed later on to return the clients hair back to its original length! Seamless hair extensions are ideal for bridal styling as they have a super slim seam that’s easily hidden even in very fine hair, the ends are double drawn so they are super thick which helps to blend out the natural transition line.
