I bought them a couple years ago.  They’re still in really good condition too.  I rarely wear them because I’m horrible at putting them in.  Since my hair is thin, I have to tease my roots to make them clip in tightly and so you can’t see them.  I usually only wear them if I’m curling my hair.  But, if you have thick hair and you want the length, I’d recommend them for sure.

I have them and I love them.  If you do get them, make sure to get the ones that are human hair because those can be curled, straightened, washed, etc.  They’re a little more expensive but are well worth it.  I got mine two years ago for my MOH’s wedding and have used them for another wedding and other outings and will be using them for mine.  As long as you take good care of them, they will last.

What brand/where did you get them? I’ve been looking into this as well…

they’re also great because they don’t rip up your hair.

Mine are the Raquel Welch ones.  I got them at this store called Merle Norman but you can order them online I think, tho I wouldn’t suggest it since in person you can at lease make sure the color matches (and mine does perfectly – which is actually hard to do).  Again, they’re $$ but for the amount of use I’ve gotten out of them – and the way they look – it was well worth it!

I use them on occassion, my hair is a tad shorter than yours & I have eight, 18 inch clips. I have pretty fine hair, and feel that 8 pieces don`t really cut it for adding the correct volume or *fill* (10-12 would probably be better, while 16 might be overkill).

They can get heavy! It`s not something I really thought of at first, but MAN! if worn too long or not in correctly, they can pull on your hair & scalp which can be pretty uncomfortable. However, if put into an updo or half up-half down some of the weight is better distributed & more comfortable for long wear.

Care is critical, since the hair is not rooted, there is no natural moisturization or protection from scalp oils, so the hair can suffer from breakage and other damage (styling) more easily than your *real* hair. Take your time to match the colour correctly as well, or buy blonde & have your stylist dye them to match.

good luck! 🙂

I really wanted the clip ons but my daughter (who is a cosmotologist) is insisting on putting in a few weaves for the wedding.  If I didnt have her to take them out that night I wouldnt do it — I would opt for the clips.  The weave looks great — It just bothers the heck out of me — but I will listen to the professional.
