The Jessica Simpson ones are actually pretty good. There are a few videos on youtube about them and how they work. They’re actually a full hair piece that clips in under layers of your real hair.

Just make sure that you have thick enough hair to cover them. A lot of people with thin hair look awful with extensions because you can see the tracks.

Haha. ME TOO! It’s a pain. Mine is really long though.

I wore permanent extensions for two years. They damage your hair to some extent over the long run but it’s not terrible, and definitely not irreversible. I stopped wearing them when my own hair grew long enough and I got tired of the maintenance.

For the wedding I wore clip-ons for more length and volume. They don’t look as natural as the permanent ones to wear on a daily basis, but they worked great for one day. I loved them!

I wore clip ins, I made them, they were just below my shoulders, I had lost my job so found the hair at a beauty supply, sewed in the clips!  When the big day came, my hair had gotten so long, I really didn’t need them but we used two of them for volume!

I second NatDawn. I have been wearing clip in extensions for years.  I say do not buy the Jessica Simpson ones!  Go to a local wig store or beauty supply store and only buy human hair extensions.  You can cut and sew them yourself.  Piece of cake.  I use three rows of them. Depending on the length my 20″ extensions run about $100 and holler if you can’t find them locally as I can give you some help to find them online.  They are great.  Stay away from synthetic.  It is barbie hair that can’t be curled (or hardly even combed).  Once you get the extensions cut and sewn to wear in your hair you have to have them “cut in”.  Which means that a hair stylist will cut and blend the length into your hair so you don’t have a mullet.  I say do it and no one will notice… promise.  Holler if you want some step by step help as I have lots of experience.

If your going to get clipin extensions get the good kind (i.e. spend some extra money) An ex-coworker used to wear the Jessica Simpson ones to work all the time and they looked HORRIBLE! She however thought they looked amazing. My cousin uses clipons occasionally, don’t know the brand, but hers look amazing. She bought hers through her hairdresser.
