    I found these on ebay but I dont get it. how do you clip them on? Just like a hair clip? If so, wouldnt that be really noticeable?


    Here is what Im talking about eBay.ca: 8 Streaks Clip on 19" jet black #1 Human Hair Extension (item 320145183799 end time 10-Aug-07 13:45:00 EDT)

    I believe you clip these in underneath a layer of your normal hair, so you don't even see the clip. Of course, I've never used them so I could be completely wrong!

      I use the extensions with the glue, and keep them in for a few days. My hair is fine and the clip-ins don't stay in for me. But I have a girlfriend who uses them all the time and they work great for her. I wish I could use them. Hopefully they'll come out with some that clip tighter so I can use them. Much easier than the glue -- and less permanent!

      They do just clip in ... you puch the small comb through your hair near the scalp, then pop it closed.

      Make sure you get real human hair though. the synthetic is HORRIBLE!

        right, you clip them underneath your hair in layers, just as you would extensions that you would glue in...

          My sister uses these all of the time! Her hair dresser even dyes them the exact same color as her hair, so they match perfectly. She just clips them under her hair and says that they are really easy to wear. They look totally natural.

            My sister uses them too and the look amazing.. you have to buy speacial clips at a beauty supply store.. they're cheap and they hold on well.. though she doesn't use them at a daily basis.. just for parties or something like that..

              Thanks ladies! I really want exstensions for the wedding. I am going to have my hair black and fuschia, but it wont be long enough for the way I want to do it so exstensions seemed to make the most sense.
              Do you know if most stylists will work with them? Can they use a curling iron on them too??

                YES you clip them under the hair and YES you can use a curling iron on them IF you get the human hair ones (which cost over double), IF you get the human hair ones, you can do pretty much anything you would to normal hair as in curl, perm, colour or highlight..

                If you plan on doing a colour like fuscia, why not buy them already that colour and then clip them in, it would save you possibly damaging your own?

                Good Luck~

                  If I bought them that colour though would a stylist be able to match it? Because I want the colour to go from root to tip not just underneath.

                    yes, you can color them any color you like, as long as they are real hair.
