If you want the long, full look of hair extensions, but cannot stand the idea of gluing or sewing weave tracks into your natural hair, clip-on weaves might be the best option for you. You can add extra length, volume or even color by using bobby pins to clip in the hair weave of your choice. The best part about putting in hair tracks with bobby pins is its cost-effectiveness, and you can do it yourself at home within a matter of minutes.

Things You'll Need

  • Bobby pins (same color as your weave)
  • Wefted hair weave (synthetic or natural)
  • Scissors
  • Styling pomade
  • Brush
  • Comb

Comb your hair out to detangle it. Apply styling pomade throughout your hair to make it easier to pin the tracks in place later.

Cut the pieces of hair weave at the base to the desired width. Measure the hair weave track across your head to figure out exactly how much of it you need. Cut the weave to the desired length as well. For a more natural look, cut the length of your weave to the same length as your natural hair, or its layers, if you are pinning the tracks in a section of your hair with layers.

Part your hair in the area where you want to add the tracks. Pin the track onto the root of your hair. Secure the track by pinning it at the weft of the weave. You need to pin the track in tightly, so use as many bobby pins as you need to secure the track in place.

Conceal the tracks by brushing some of your natural hair over them. Apply hair spray over your hair and enjoy your new look.
