How To Clip In Curly Clip In Hair Extension

 

If you’ve purchased a 110g set - you will receive 6 wefts, the 220g set, contains 9 wefts. The above demo uses a Curly, Dark Brown, 22'', 220g Bebonia set.




Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Your full set of Bebonia’s
  • A spray bottle filled with water
  • A clip to section your hair 
  • Mirror 

Note: Before you begin this process make sure you’ve washed and styled your curls to your liking. You should have also washed and set your extensions (check out this guide to learn how). Your extensions must be dry before you begin! 

 

 

How to Clip in Your 110g Set


Step 1: Start from the bottom.

You’ll need: One 3-clip weft

We always start by clipping from the nape of the neck and moving upwards. To create your first section, use your index fingers to separate a small section of hair out, making sure to create an even part.  The section should be long enough in width that the weft lines up with it perfectly, end to end. Secure the rest of your hair away with a clip.

Secure the width to the center of the section, starting with the middle clip. You should secure it as close to the root as possible. Once the middle clip has been clipped in, clip the left side and then the right, pulling the weft taught.


Pro tip: To make it easier and prevent clip sliding, pull the hair slightly away from your scalp to create leverage. You can also tease the hair to create a more secure base. 



 

Step 2: Start your next section.

You’ll need: One 3-clip weft

Create your next section by creating a new straight part about half an inch above the first clipped weft. Secure excess hair away with a clip.

Take your next three-clip weft, and make sure it fits within the section. Secure by clipping in the middle clips, then the sides. 


Pro Tip: To avoid bumps in the weft, slightly stretch the piece at the sides when you’re securing middle clips. 

 

 

Step 3: Halfway there! 

You’ll need: Two 4-clip wefts

Create your next part and section about half an inch above your last weft, clipping away excess hair. This should be along the widest portion of your head.  Clip away excess hair.

You’re going to install two 4-clip wefts in this section. Secure the first from the middle of your head and pull it towards the left side of your face. Clip your two center clips in the middle of your section, and then secure the side clips.

Then, place the edge of your next weft beside the one you just installed. You want to clip across your entire head, without leaving gaps between the wefts. This weft should sit in line or just above the first 4-clip weft. Drag this weft from the center of your head towards the right hand side. Secure in place by clipping your two center clips in the middle of your section, and then secure the side clips. 

 

 

Step 4: The Finish Line! 

You’ll need: Two 2-clip wefts


Image of section 

Create your final section, about an inch above your latest weft. Your last wefts go on the sides of your hair to boost volume and ensure a seamless blend front to back.

Separate a straight thin section of hair about two inches above the ear on the side, and clip the rest of the hair away. Take a 2-clip weft and secure the clip closest to your hairline first. Then secure the second clip closer to the back of your head. Repeat on the other side. 

 

Release your remaining hair and you’re good to go!
