@teach10:  I haven’t done this formally but have used sewn in and clip in extensions before. If you are planning to keep your hair low, this should not be a problem. If you were going to put it high up, however, you run the risk of seeing the clips/where they are sewn!

Yes!  I have really thin hair and I use my clip ins all the time.  They’re great to thicken ponytails too.  I’d recommend getting real hair ones.  You can curl, wash and even dye them.  They are well worth the investment, I have had my longest ones for 5 yrs now and I still wear them.  My hair is probably similar length to yours and I’m wearing a low side bun for my wedding with extensions for extra volume.

Are you doing your hair or a stylist?

@teach10:  The best thing I did was get my stylist to actually show me how to curl them and how to put them in.  And if she’s doing my hair for an event, I just bring them along to the salon.

worth the extra $ for sure.

Heck yes!  My friend that’s doing my hair has some clip-in extensions that are a similar color to my hair and she’s just letting me borrow her’s for the day. I need all the volume help I can get!

For updo’s you simply put the extensions in upside down. Most reputable hair stylists should know the process for clip-in’s.

Yep- they can definitely do it.  Not sure you need your hair longer (super long hair is actually harder to do an updo with), but clip ins will definitely make it look more full. Just make sure they are real hair or else your stylist won’t be able to put heat on it
