Clip On Hairpieces For Women- Dramatically Change Your Hairstyle In Minutes

Updated on August 22, 2009

Clip on hairpieces for women are a great way to completely change your look within a very short space of time. You can go from having short hair to a long luscious mane with ease.

These types of hair extensions are also known as clip on hair extensions and have become very popular of late due to the increase in celebrities and pop stars using them to enhance their looks.

Lots of African American hair extensions have been done with clip on hair pieces and there are some well known people who have even endorsed their own product range which has made it even more prominent in public eye. Singer and sometime actress Jessica Simpson has a range of hair extension products that she not only sells but actually uses. What better endorsement could you need?

How Are Clip On Hairpieces Made

Clip on hair extensions are made from attaching strands of hair onto a strip of thin gauze or toupee lacing.  A hair clip is then attached to the gauze and these are what you use to attach them to your head.  You make a parting in your hair, place the extension where you want it and snap the clips shut.  Then you just need to adjust your own hair to cover the clip so that it can not be seen.

You can get different size bunches of clipped together hair and they also come in differing lengths and colours.

You could decide to just add a dash of colour by applying them in streak like fashion. An example of someone who has done this is the singer Kelly Rowland. She uses wine red colours to get that rock chick effect.

The Advantages of Clip In Hair Extensions

The advantages of clip in hair extensions are that they are not permanent. You can radically change the way you look within minutes and when you are ready, you can return to your normal hair style. This is great if you have a special event that you are attending and want to look a little different.

You Can Test Out New Styles

If you are not sure that long hair will suit you or you would like to see what you would look like with curly hair, you have the opportunity of testing out a new hairstyle. If you are happy with it, you may consider going through the process of having fusion hair extensions, where the extension is attached to your hair using a special glue and will last for up to three months. If you are not ready for this type of commitment, then the clip on alternatives are great.

They Are Not Expensive

You can find a product that will suit your budget. Synthetic clip on hair extensions tend to be the cheaper version but you will still be able to create a beautiful style with these.

You Can Choose Synthetic Or Human Hair Extensions

There is a choice of purchasing human hair or synthetic extensions. Your choice will come down to the budget that you have. They both come in a variety of styles and colours but with human hair extensions, you have more freedom to style it using heated appliances like straightening irons and curling tongs. You have to be careful not to use electrical equipment with synthetic hair as this will cause it to melt and clump together. If you are washing the hair, always use a hairdryer on the lowest setting possible.

Clip On Hairpieces Are Easy To Look After

You can wash the hair extensions very easily by soaking them in warm soapy water and leaving them to dry on a flat surface. All you need to do is to gently brush it through so that they maintain their shape.

Clip on hairpieces for women are a great way to change up your look. You can find good quality products in any reputable hair salon or beauty shop. Alternatively you can find a wide choice available online. Think about getting hair extensions to give yourself a completely new look.

    I was just thinking the other day about how clip on hairpieces are going to be really big this winter or even the first part of next year when all the women who cut off all their hair to wear the cute short trendy hairstyles will want their lovely long locks back. LOL
