Fear not because now we will go through each style you can make using a clip-in hair extension.
But first of all,
What is the proper technique to wear a clip-in hair extension?
Hygiene is essential, so always wash your hair and dry them thoroughly before wearing extensions. The proper technique for wearing clip-in extensions is
- To decide where to adjust the clip-in hair extension and make a parting.
- The first parting should be 1-2 inches above the nape of your neck because this is the most suitable part of the head for hiding the extensions.
- The second parting should be 0.5 inches above the first, and so on.
- Backcomb the roots where you want to adjust the clip of your extension.
- Back combing will help trap the clips in the hair and secure them in place.
Now, look at the hairstyles you can make after wearing the extension.
High lights in the hair are trendy, and anyone can rock brown ombre hair. You don’t have to go to a salon and get a highlighted hairstyle. Get two different colors of hair extensions, and choose the colors that suit you. The first step of selecting the hair extension is done.

The low ponytail is perfect for hiding extensions. It may feel like a boring hairstyle, but having a voluminous ponytail with my ideas for you, you will never think of it as a boring hairstyle again.
Make a low ponytail twist it diagonally and fan out the hair a little bit from the twist to make it messy. Secure the ponytail with some hairpins and bind the hair ends with an elastic band. Hide the elastic band by twisting the hair around the elastic band.
After making a low ponytail, take a small portion of hair and twist it, fan out hair from those twists to add some volume, and wrap it loosely around the elastic band, then take a small portion from the other side of the pony and repeat the same process. Wear a fancy hair comb at the top middle of the ponytail to add a more elegant look.

Yes, it’s a braid, but you can add an exquisite look to a low ponytail by adding any braid you like. Even a side fishtail would work. Make a braid and end it with a pony.
This style is perfect for hiding hair extensions. For making a low bun:
- Part the hair in two sections and comb your hand through them to get a smoothing effect.

Simple Braid With Long Length:
A simple braid is always in trend, and by adding extensions as you braid, your hair can add length to the braid. Adding the hair extension along the braid is tricky. Add the attachments and keep braiding whenever it feels like the volume is decreasing. Decorate it with pearls or add any jewelry of your liking.
A High ponytail with a bounce is always charming and adds energy to your look. Wearing clip-in hair extensions for a ponytail is a little different. Make two portions of the hair, front and back, by parting them at the crown from one ear to the other. Now make a pony from the front portion of the hair and add the hair extensions between the front and middle part of the hair. Make the ponytail by adding the second portion of the hair with the first ponytail and extension.
A double ponytail is another high ponytail technique with a twist. Make a ponytail by using the crown hair. Now around this ponytail, you will see there are free hairs. Leave them directly and add a circle of hair extensions around the ponytail. After you are satisfied with the volume, gather the hair around the first ponytail and make the final ponytail. This action gives a lovely, bouncy ponytail and hides the hair extensions completely.
You can make a high bun with the help of a high ponytail. Make the two portions of the hair and twist it to the full length, fan out the hair to add volume, and morph it into a high bun. Secure it with pins and decorate it with a piece of jewelry.
For this hairstyle, add the hair extensions to the front of the hair and make a braid from one ear to the other by adding hair strands to the braid from the front side. As the front hair ends, complete the simple braid and use an elastic band to bind it at the end. Hair extensions will have a significant effect when you add them in the direction of the braid.
The stunning look of the fish braid is a timeless one. You can wear it at weddings, parties, professional functions, and college. This hairstyle is effortless. Make two even parts of the hair. Now you have two pieces left and right. Take a thin strand from the right portion and add it to the left by making it across. Now, do the same with the other side by making a narrow portion from the left side and adding it to the right side. Do this procedure till the hair ends then secure the hair with an elastic band.
DIY Popup-colored Hair Extension:
Colored hair extensions are pretty but committing to them is another thing. We all know the feeling of buying colored hair extensions on a whim, but they always end up in a box after one or two uses. Take a popup powder color of your liking, sandwich the hair between the color and your fingers, and slide it to the end of the strands. Now comb the hair extension to spread the color evenly through the hair. Wear them and VOILÀ. Using an eyeshadow or blush is a great idea.
Beachy waves give a stylish boho look to the extension. Regularly curl the hair, but when wearing hair extensions, always start the curling by leaving 2 to 3 inches from the roots and 1 inch from the end. To make the look more voluminous, alternate the curling side. One strand should be curled toward the face, and the second strand should be curled away from the face.
Curls can be of two types:
- To make the tight curls leave them as they are.
- For making the loose curl, after curling the strand, pull it for some time, and there you have loose curls.
The lovely, clean, and elegant look is always in trend. Straightening the hair after wearing the hair extension can give you that look. It’s a timeless look with no boundaries. Straight hair can always be the answer for professional or casual wedding functions and parties.
