How to Add Extensions

Hair extensions add volume and length to any amount of hair. I wanted to share some professional tips about putting them in so they look natural.

I love Rapunzel of Sweden extensions. You can shop their entire collection here.

Here is how I add my clip-in extensions. See my note at the bottom if you have shorter hair.

Because I have long hair, I start close to the nap of my neck. My goal is to create a weaved layering effect of the extensions, so I begin with the first clip in on the bottom left.

The next layer, I do on the bottom right, beginning the brick layer pattern. I want them to overlap to create a natural look.

I then go back to the left side and add them in again.

And then again on the right. I do a total of four layers of extensions, keeping to the back and alternating left back, right back, left back, right back.

I prefer to add all of my extensions in the back because it adds a lot of natural volume and length. I don’t like adding my extensions on the sides of my head, but you can do that as well.  If you add extensions on the sides, you will want to create a brick layer pattern when you add your extensions: one in the middle back, then one on the right side and one on the left side, and repeated with multiple extensions, as needed.

Tips for short hair: if your hair is shorter you will need to start adding your extensions up higher and not close to your neck. This will help your extensions look more natural.
