How to Apply

How to Apply Clip In Hair Extensions

Hair extensions can add length, volume and color to natural hair. Clip In Hair Extensions are an ideal way to use extensions without the long-term commitment of sewing or gluing in hair extensions. Clip In Hair Extensions are available in small, 1-inch strips that can be applied individually or larger wefts of up to 6 inches long that may run around the entire head. When applied properly, Clip In Hair Extensions can comfortably and securely remain in place all day long.

1 Decide on the location you'd like for your hair extension. If you are using a single streak, you may choose an area near the face. For larger wefts, begin at the back of the head
2 Measure a length of hair approximately the same length as the extension strip. Split the section of hair in half, pinning the top half out of the way with your hair clip. This portion of hair will conceal the extension clip.
Tease the lower strip of hair at the root using your comb. Backcomb both the top and bottom sides of the hair about 1 inch from the roots. Roughing up the hair will give the clip something to grab on to.
4 Spray both the top and bottom sides of the backcombed hair with hair spray.
Open your hair extension clip by pressing down in the middle of the clip. Place the teeth of the clip against your scalp at the root of the selected area.
6 Dig the teeth of the clip into the backcombed area and, when secure, click the clip into place by pressing down on either end.
Remove your reserved hair from its clipped-up position and allow it to fall over the top of the extension. Smooth the surface of the hair using your comb to neatly conceal the clip.


How to Apply Hair Weave

Hair Weave can be purchased from most beauty supply stores in either synthetic fiber or 100 percent human hair. Wefts are strands of hair that are woven into long, cloth bands. The bands, not the actual extension hair, are what you attach to your natural locks. Wefts are applied to your hair with a special type of latex glue made special for hair extensions. Give your hair the length and body you want by applying weft hair extensions.

Create a horizontal part across the back of your head about 2 to 3 inches from the nape of your neck. Clip the rest of your hair away. 
Measure the part and cut a weft slightly smaller than the measurement. 
Apply a thin line of glue along the rough side of the band at the top of the weft. 
Press the glue-side of the weft along the part, about 1/4 inch from the roots. Lightly press your fingers all along the weave.
Hold the extension in place for about 30 seconds to allow the glue to dry. Unclip your hair and create another horizontal part across the back of your head about 1/2 inch above the first part. 
Repeat the applications until you reach just below the crown of your head. Extensions applied any higher will be visible. 
7 Make a horizontal part about 1/2 inch above your left ear. Cut a weft slightly smaller than the part and repeat the applications until you reach just below your temple. Repeat this process for the other side of your hair.


How to Apply Lace Wigs

Lace Wigs are constructed on a very thin mesh/lace cap, and their key advantage is that at the hairline, and when parted, a lace wig looks perfectly natural. It appears as if the hair is growing right out of your scalp and hairline! The lace is applied to your skin via special lace wig adhesives and virtually vanishes once adhered. The styling and flexibility of lace wigs are so versatile, that you can even wear a lace wig in a high ponytail or up do!

The first task is to create a flat surface for the wig to sit on. You can braid your hair down, mold it, or apply a stocking cap and/or wig liner. Most prefer molding or wrapping the hair when wearing a straight unit and braiding it when the unit is curly. The decision is yours. 
Next cleanse your forehead perimeter with alcohol. this will create a clean oil free surface which will be better for the adhesive to adhere to. 
All the hair of the wig hair should be pinned up before placing on your head. This will eliminate the hair from falling and sticking to the glue. be especially careful of the baby hairs the stick easily to excess glue. 
Gradually start trimming the excess lace, the goal here is to create your hairline, only cut small amounts off at a time. Refrain from making jagged cuts in the lace only smooth precision ones. Stork scissors work well for cutting the lace. Place the wig on your head, and evaluate how and where you would like the hairline. The goal is to find where the hairline will look most natural.
Mark or lightly outline where it is to be placed on your head. Do not apply adhesive outside these marks. You should be able to place four fingers between your hairline and your eyebrows for the most natural look. 
After you have created your hairline, apply adhesive to the hairline so it can stay on your head. Let it semi-dry before placing your wig over it. It should be a little tacky sticky to the touch not stringy, for best hold results. Press down with comb. 
7 Add glue to excess spots that you may have missed. Make sure you let it semi dry before pressing down with comb. Lace should lay on forehead hairline smoothly with no ripples.


How to Apply Lace Closure

The first step when you are looking to install a Lace Closure is to match it with the weave or hair extensions or your natural hair. Since closures are purchased separately, it is up to you make sure that you buy the best match. This includes matching the color and texture of the closure with the hair extensions you are using or your natural hair. Hold the closure close to the weave or hair extension and see if there is any difference in color. Feel it to determine that both have a similar texture.

Regardless of whether you want to install a Swiss lace closure hair on sew-in or glue-in weaves, tracks will be needed for the weft of the closure. 
Complete the process of sewing in or gluing in hair extensions to tracks or cornrow braids of natural hair.
Clean the skin around the outer edge of the hairline with rubbing alcohol.
Make sure that you leave a U-shaped portion of cornrow braids on the crown of your head. This is where you have to install the Swiss lace closure.
Apply a thin line of adhesive. Remember that a little bit of adhesive is enough. Gently press it down until it is secured. Alternatively, you can use a dark colored sewing thread and C-shaped needle to attach the lace closure to the U-shaped section of tracks.
