3 Up-do Hairstyles With Clip-ins


Ok, so you just bought a brand new bundle of clip-ins. You washed  and prepared your hair, and you are excited to have them because you learned how to install the clip-ins on your own. Great job!  But now what? Surely you did not plan to only wear your extensions down, did you? If you are looking for quick and easy ways to switch up your styles, you’ve come to the right place. This article will inform you of three up-dos that you can wear using your clip-ins.

Style I: Half Braided Up-do

  1. You start this look by parting a section right in front of your ears. Create one section on each side of your head, and use bobby pins to hold the hair in place.
  2. Then you continue by installing the clip-in extensions. For help on how to do this, please see my articles: Blending Short Hair with Clip-ins for shorter lengths. Also see my article Discover Your Hair Type if you’re not sure of what type of hair you have.
  3. After you get the clip-ins installed, you can remove the bobby pins from the sides that you sectioned, and braid each side. If you don’t know how to do this, be sure to read my article: Create the Perfect Ponytail using Hair Extensionsto learn how to make a braid.
  4. Overlap the ends of the braid on top of each other. You can use small pins to bind the ends.

Style II: Ponytail Updo

  1. You start this look by detangling and brushing your hair until it lays flat on your head. The surface of your head should look smooth
  2. You then have to place your real hair into a ponytail and proceed to braid the end.
  3. Fold the weft of your clip-ins into bundles and attach to the braided end of your natural ponytail. For more information on how to do this, please see my article: Create the Perfect Ponytail using Hair Extensions.

 Style III: High Bun

  1. Once you understand how to create the Ponytail up-do, creating a high bun will be a lot easier. You start this look by repeating the steps of the ponytail.
  2. Once you have the ponytail information, you wrap a mesh donut accessory around the base of the ponytail (the top portion).
  3. Then you proceed to divide the ends of your ponytail into two equal parts and wrap piece around the base. Be sure to fully cover the mesh bun.
  4. You can use hair pins to keep the shape of the bun intact. With these steps, you are also able to make a low bun. The only difference is that you have to create your ponytail at a lower position.
