How to Wear Clip-In Bangs
I get my extensions from Lace Wigs Buy, where bangs run about $27. They lay flat, and come in the perfect shape.
I’m officially campaigning for every woman, no matter what kind of texture they may have, to invest in commitment-free clip-in bangs that are, of course, professionally styled first. Whether it’s for everyday, once in a while, or a one-night-only affair, the transformation is everything.
For $27 you can’t really go wrong and it’s better than chopping off your hair only to realize for the 10th time that bangs don’t suit you 😉
As for the clip-ins, the night before, i shampooed and conditioned the hair piece. “When it’s straight out of the package, it’s super shiny!” This gives it a more natural shine.
Here’s a Handy Video to create a natural look with clip in bangs. And below you can read about my experience with them.
Here are a few tips and some info on the clip in bangs:
Take your time choosing the right color at the store – you can’t return these (which makes sense, I wouldn’t want to get a pair of bangs someone had worn all night then returned) but they are made from real hair so you can get your stylist to color them if you can’t find a perfect match.
Match the texture of the clip in bangs – they are obviously going to be stick straight bangs so make sure your hair matches that and use some styling products once they’re clipped in to give them texture.
Wash them – the clip in hair looks a little shiny. If you wash these a couple times it will help take away some of that sheen to give it a more natural look (this technique is also helpful for those too shiny synthetic wigs)
Get them professionally trimmed at your next appointment – your hairstylist will be able to cut them to the right length, texturize and blend them.
