My hairstylist suggested if I want my hair to look fuller, I could buy clip-in hair extensions that she will cut to appropriate length and curl accordingly.
Just wondering if anyone thinks it’s a good idea or not.
The first photo is my hair trial at the salon; the second photo is when I got home about an hour or two later(you can see that the curls are a bit deflated)

I intend to get clip ins for my wedding. Just be sure that if you are adding them for length, get them extra thick. For volume, make sure she cuts them. Extensions can tend to look a bit fake if they are too thin and don’t match your hair’s length. Maybe try something like this:

I’m hoping to do this too, I’ve had reports from friends who find them great. Like yourself, I just don’t have the length or volume I’d like.

I have clip-ins and wear them all the time when it’s not too hot. They are super easy and quick to get in and out, and you’re never stuck showering with them like other extensions. I love them! Get human hair though, or if you get synthetic make sure it’s already curled because they can’t handle the heat like human hair can from curling irons.

Did she spray your hair at the trial? I’m pretty much expecting my hair to not move even during a hurricane for the amounts of hair spray I’m expect to wear. I’m like you where the curl only holds up for about 2-3 hours.
I’ve not tried the clip-ins but I certainly would.

Go for it! I will also be using clip-ins for an extra inch of length and lots of volume:-) I was originally planning on having track extensions, luckily, I tried those out back in March and I realized they were not for me, I felt them on me too much so with the left-over hair from the tracks, my stylist made clip-ins for me. Definitely be sure to use human hair, as the PPs stated.

I have worn human hair clip in extensions for years and not one person (even closest friends and family) can tell they aren’t real. I have very thin hair and I use them to add volume. I say go for it. You will absolutely love them and with the pretty curl that your hair has it will be very easy to match (they call yours “wavy”). I am sure your stylist will make sure of it but DO NOT buy synthetic. They should run you about $100. And you can use them again after your wedding. Holler back if she wants to charge you more than that. I can help you out.

I am wearing clip in (real) hair extensions. My hair is long- but it’s fine and doesn’t hold curl too well. This is a pic from my hair trial. The extensions are a little too long, so my stylist is just going to trim some length off the bottom. They are an exact match to my real hair color and texture, and my family could not believe this isn’t all of my real hair:

If you wear clip in hair extensions, just make sure that it’s real human hair, or else your stylist will have a hard time curling it without it melting!
I have clip ins i wore when my hair was longer, really nice! Be prepared to spend a bit of money for the good stuff, though.

I would love to do this…. where does everyone buy their clip ins??

@Corgi- I got mine at Sally Beauty Supply.
And I second what mrsv2be said, they really need to be human hair clip ins.

I wore 2 clip ins that I made as I didn’t want to pay $100 for them! They hold a curl great!

@Monkeygirl: Your hair looks beautiful, is this curled with tongs?
