I use clip in hair extensions all the time for fancy events and will def wear them for my own wedding! They’re super easy to put in and take out and leave no damage to your hair. I’ve had the glue in ones too and those caused a lot of breakage. And they were itchy and annoying. Clip in all the way! Here’s a photo of me with trial makeup for my engagement party and clip in hair extensions. 

And for reference this is me without extensions -my hair is drastically shorter in real life but they blend super well. (Not to mention are a fraction of the cost at about 150-200$ compared to upwards of $1000 for the glue in ones) 

just make sure the clip ins you get are grade A Remy hair and not synthetic because synthetic will melt if used with a heated styling tool.

I was totally creeped out by wearing hair that wasn’t mine, but I have fine hair (and not that much of it) and my hair trial just wasn’t doing it for me. My stylist recommended clip ins and I figured “why not.” I’m not sure that I’ll ever wear them again but they made my hair absolutely perfect for my wedding day! Go for it!

I have pretty fine hair naturally as well. I am all for extensions. This is your wedding! Treat. Yo. Self.

I started Remy wearing clip ins a few years ago. At first I matched the color of the extensions to the color of my hair, then I figured out that my stylist would trim them and dye them and I started doing that. It felt awesome to have ‘full’ hair, because my natural hair is baby soft and won’t really hold a curl at all. I got so used to wearing the clip ins that I felt weird NOT wearing them. These are clip ins below from when I was ombre.

Eventually, I took the plunge and got keratin tipped fusion extensions. If you’re even THINKING about anything more permanent than clip ins, I would absolutely recommend them! For these, they take a few pieces of your hair and glue an extension to it. You can’t see them in your hair, even as they grow out a little, which is a major advantage over tape in extensions, which tend to ‘flop out’ as they grow over your ears. I can put my hair up, do fun/crazy styles with it, and it does not look like I have extensions. 

I’ve had my fusion extensions for over a year now. I made sure to find a salon that would replace them slowly (so I get about 1/4 of them redone every 8 or 9 weeks) instead of a salon that would leave them in for four months then remove all of them and replace them all. Instead of one huge payment then, I pay what equals out to approx. $50 a month for ‘maintenance.’ 

After I got these, I can’t even believe that I beat around the bush for so long with tons of sets of clip ins. These are way more comfortable and don’t pull on my hair like clip ins did. I don’t have to worry about taking them out after a long day. I just treat them like my normal hair and make sure to brush them well. This is my hair below!
