Hi, I'm Ashley Blanton. And today, we're going to learn how to do clip-in extensions. What are clip-in extensions? They are basically wefts with clips sewn on them that allow you to remove your extensions as you please, you can. Sleep in them or not sleep in them, swim in them or not swim in them. You can change your look from day to night, short to long, red to blond, whatever you like. Clip-ins are versatile and they're amazing. And I want to show you how to put them in. Brands of clip-ins all kind of vary slightly, but in general you're going to have three components. You're going to have your short or blendable clip-in pieces, they're usually about an inch long. They're made for the top of the hair to blend in your haircut. Then you're going to have some medium size clips, they're usually four to six inches long. They're more for the bottom or the nape areas. And then, you have your larger pieces, sometimes they're twice this size. They're made to go from ear to ear. This size is made for the side or the crown of the head, o.k, to blend in that haircut. So, I'm going to show you how to put one of these in. So, the hardest part to blend is always the top. So, a general rule I always do, is I always start kind of going from the top and working my way down. So that I know that these layers are going to blend. So, what we're going to do, make a neat part. Alright, so we'e going to clip this hair out of the way. This clip has three clips, so we're going to open each clip by pressing the outer corner. It should make a popping sound. You're going to use your rat tail comb to make about a quarter of an inch parting. You take the hair and go sideways along the hair, it gives it more tension. And just clip that hair into that little section there. Then go to the second one, take that hair sideways, press. And then, our last one. So that should feel pretty sturdy, especially if we move the hair sideways. And that's how you do clip-in extensions.
