Applied in under 3 minutes they can be used to add volume, length, color or enhance hair up styles making them one of the most versatile and popular extension products on the market today. As with most clip in hair extensions there are many variations of this product so it can get a tad confusing when it comes to deciding the right one for you. We’ve put together a guide on how to pick your perfect piece which includes a step-by-step application tutorial and style inspiration. 

    What is a One Piece Clip-in Hair Extension?

    For a lot of people multi piece extension sets are too much effort, they can have up to 8 pieces that need to be positioned all over the head. The beauty of a One Piece Clip In Hair Extension is that you only need to worry about a single piece which takes a fraction of the time and trouble to apply than a full head multi piece set. They sit discreetly underneath the hair usually attached from ear to ear and vary in thickness depending on your hair type. This Clip-in type is especially appealing for customers with fine hair looking to add a natural amount of volume. For more info check out our full One Piece Clip Ins FAQ’s.

    Here at Cliphair we have a selection of 3 One Piece Clip-in Hair Extensions that cover all hair types and requirements. Let us talk you through them. . .

Consisting of a 10” wide strip of hair that weighs 80g, this piece sits snuggly underneath the hair from ear to ear.

With 20+ colors and 4 different lengths to choose from there is an option for everyone.
