Hair extensions are typically associated with a female audience, but they are not exclusive at all! In fact, many men – whether for work or cosmetic reasons – use hair pieces, extensions and wigs in their life. When it comes to achieving the perfect hairstyle, human hair extensions can help both men, women, and all those that don’t fit in either category to get a glamorous look and feel more confident in their style. Ready to embrace your new look? In this guide to hair extensions for men, we will explore the world of Remy hair extensions, covering the different types available, application methods, styling options, and how Cliphair extensions can help you recreate the look of your dreams.
Types of Hair Extensions for Men
How many types of hair extensions are there? Well, the answer is: many. But they can be mostly grouped in three macro-categories, to avoid any confusion! Let’s see them together.
Clip In Hair Extensions
Clip in hair extensions are a popular choice as they are versatile, and allow people to switch in between looks in a matter of minutes. They come with handy, small and comfortable metal clips that securely attach to natural hair, instantly boosting your hair’s look. Products such as Ultra Volume, designed to step up your hair game with unmatched bounce, and Seamless Hair Extensions (the ones that lay flat against your scalp discreetly, and have the same thickness from root to tip) both belong to this category. Clip in hair extensions for men are available in various colors and textures, ensuring a seamless blend with your natural hair.
Tape In Hair Extensions
Tape in hair extensions are a semi-permanent option that requires professional application. Gentle to natural hair and relatively fast to apply, this solution is quite popular among those who’d like to add dashes of color to their hair on top of added length and volume. Tape hair extensions are perfect for those looking to have long, free-flowing hair, as opposed to other types of hair extensions that work better for updos and tricky hairstyles. Tape in extensions for men are comfortable, low-maintenance, and can last for several weeks with proper care. On top of this, in some cases they can also be fitted and removed at home!

Permanent Hair Extensions
Permanent solutions such as nano ring hair extensions are applied using small beads that are clamped onto the natural hair and the extension strands. This type of hair extensions works wonders in finer hair, whilst those who have been blessed with a thicker mane may want to opt for micro ring hair extensions instead. Weaves, on the other hand, offer a complete makeover that almost fully-covers natural hair. These methods do not require any heat or adhesives, making it a gentler option for your hair, on top of being a great choice for men looking for a long-term solution.
Application Methods for Men's Hair Extensions
How to put hair extensions on? Depending on your desired look, the product you’ve chosen, and ultimately your skills, there are different options.
Professional Salon Application
For the best results, putting your hair and hair extensions in the hands of a skilled hair stylist (trained in hair extensions) is the best option. Sure, it may not be as cost effective as doing it at home, but it will surely leave you with glamorous results. A hair professional won’t only be able to help you fit your hair extensions, but can also help you choose the right type of extensions, match the colour, and ensure a comfortable and secure wear, giving you a natural and undetectable look.
If you prefer a budget-friendly option and have experience with hair extensions, you can apply clip in extensions yourself – and, in some cases, even a couple of tape in hair extensions (for example, if you’re looking to add a single streak of colored hair at the front). Whilst full-set clip in hair extensions are completely newbie-friendly, if you are looking to get a full tape in makeover please refer to a stylist. Want to know how to put clip ins on?

Styling Options with Hair Extensions for Men
You now know about the products, but what can you use them for? People often mistake hair extensions as a solution for length, or actually, lack of thereof. But this couldn’t be further from the truth! Let’s see all the possibilities you can unlock by purchasing human hair extensions.
Length and Volume Boost
Number one, okay, yes: hair extensions are the optimal solution for adding length to your hair, to change looks or hide a botched haircut. Added volume and thickness are also a great transformational key-point of hair extensions, especially if you’re looking to create a stylish man bun, or boost your mane for a long-haired look a la Jason Momoa for the summer.
Experiment with Colors
Want to try a different hair color without committing to bleach and/or dye jobs? We got you. Funky colored hair extensions offer you the opportunity to try on something different in a safe, temporary way – no damage to your natural hair, and all the fun of a new shade.
Curly hair extensions can help you boost naturally textured hair, allowing you to achieve bigger hairstyles and layered ‘dos that may be challenging to accomplish with your natural tresses alone.
