Clip in hair extensions transform a woman's hair into her greatest fashion accessory. No one can change her hair as often as she changes her clothes. Style trends change too quickly for fashionable women to keep up with all of them. Periods of time during which very short hair is popular are quickly followed by renewals in the popularity of long hair. Women who have been keeping their hair short are suddenly passe, and through no fault of their own.
Extensions make it easier for women to keep up with the times. Long, wavy hair is all the rage this summer. The bohemian trend is natural and casual, and loosely styled hair helps to create a carefree appearance. A woman who has a short haircut can still participate in the bohemian trend by using human clip extensions. Temporary extensions suit the spirit of fashion, which is constantly evolving.
High-quality human clip extensions can withstand heat styling, so waves can be added with a curling iron or rod after the extensions have been clipped into the hair. By doing this, the woman in question will be permanently curling this set of extensions unless she wants to do the work of washing, drying and straightening them. Many women own multiple sets of temporary clip in human extensions for this very reason.
Imitating Highlights and Other Color Trends
By the same token, it is also a good idea to own sets of clip on extensions in multiple colors. Extensions in the same shade as one's natural color will just make the hair look longer. Placing light extensions underneath the real-hair will create an ombre look.
Ombre hair is dark on the crown and gradually becomes lighter toward the ends. It imitates the way hair naturally lightens in the sunlight. It creates a soft boundary between the dark and light shades, so the roots grow in less obviously. Wavy ombre locks are favored by stylish actresses like Rachel Bilson and Jessica Biel.
Extensions can be used with no regard for lengthening the hair. They can be used to add temporary highlights or to make the hair appear thicker. Music fans and girls in the club scene use ready to wear hair extensions in neon colors to place bright streaks in their hair. They may even purchase extensions made out of natural human hair and dye them to match certain outfits. They are not interested in looking natural.
Sometimes it is actually more fun to wear overly artificial clip in extensions than it is to wear natural-looking ones. A neon ombre can be achieved in exactly the same manner as a regular one can. Extensions in different colors can be placed at the nape of the neck so that rainbow streaks peek through the real-hair. Special occasions like Halloween, New Year's Eve and birthdays may call for fun but temporary adjustments. One set of bright extensions will suffice for all of these holidays.
Clipping in the extensions and then taking them out later is easy and absolutely free. Dye jobs damage the hair and are expensive. A high-quality set of clip in extensions is a terrific fashion investment.
Permanent Extensions for Length, Thickness and Color
The women who use clip in hair extensions to their greatest effect will already have fairly thick and long hair. The clips will be visible unless the real hair is heavy enough to cover them. Women with thin hair will have better luck with permanent extensions. Extensions can give them long hair beyond what they can grow themselves. They can play with the highlights and ombre styles that their weak hair cannot carry; if their natural hair is too fine to handle dyes and styling, they may want to try wearing extensions that can be dyed and styled.
