10 Easy Hairstyles That Hide Extensions!

Hair extensions are a fab way to hide thin hair, improve the look of your natural hair and add length and volume. The last thing you want is for your extensions to be detectable and look obvious in your natural hair.

First things first, you should be installing your hair extensions correctly to avoid any tell-tale signs. Not only that, but incorrectly installing your extensions can actually damage your own hair.

Clip-in hair extensions can provide you with a quick fix to achieve your dream hair, but if not installed correctly, they will look unnatural and can cause breakage.

Not to mention - you should make sure that the hair extensions you're buying are good quality. Poorly made hair extensions will not only look bad but might end up damaging your natural hair, too.

RiRi's clip-in extensions are beautifully made, so they look and feel natural. Whether it's synthetic or human hair, we recommend sticking to high-quality brands to avoid any damage.

How To Install Clip-In Hair Extensions

If you want to wear hair extensions but are worried about them looking fake or damaging your hair, then clip-ins are the way to go! Clip-ins are the most gentle type of hair extension as they don’t require any chemicals, glue or heat to apply.

Clip-ins can be applied in just a few minutes, making them perfect for busy girls and guys or those indecisive about committing to a certain look. You can also take them out and re-apply them as often as you like!

Before installing your clip-in hair extensions, make sure that your natural hair is clean and dry. If your hair is greasy, the clips will not stay in place, and if it’s too short, the wefts may be visible.

Start by sectioning off your hair, then take one weft at a time and clip it in place.

Make sure that the clips are secure but not too tight, as this can cause discomfort. Once all of the wefts are in place, style your hair as usual.

Once your hair extensions are installed, you can start styling them into any number of looks! Here are 10 easy hairstyles that will help to hide your hair extensions and give you a natural look.
