Clip in hair extensions
The name of these extensions is pretty explanatory, these are hair extensions which clip in. They aren’t fixed so you can use them for special occasions then go back to your natural hair in between. It’s a really quick and easy way to change your look. Ideally you want to look for hair extensions made of virgin hair if you’re after quality.
Flip in hair extensions
This type of extension flips in with a wire and sometimes clips too. Where clip ins come in lots of separate pieces, flip ins are a large hair piece for a quick way to enhance your look.
This is a type of clip in hair extension that is shaped to be used in a ponytail style. It’s a thick hair piece that is designed to be worn near or on your crown and has a thin piece of hair at the side which is to be wrapped around the base of the ponytail once styled. It’s perfect for people with thin hair who love the swinging ponytail look.
