Best Clip In Hair Extension Tips for Brides
Now, let me give you some important tips on purchasing clip-in hair extensions.
- First of all, make sure to choose extensions made from real human hair. Synthetic extensions might be a bit cheaper, but trust me, they won’t blend as seamlessly with your natural hair. Plus, real hair extensions can be heat-styled and washed just like your own hair, giving you endless options for the big day and beyond. They have come down in price a lot since back in my pageant days in 2004.
- Match the color of your extensions to your natural hair as closely as possible. You don’t want those extensions to be screaming, “Hey, I’m fake!” Instead, you want them to seamlessly blend in, giving the illusion that you were blessed with Rapunzel-like locks. Some brands even offer multi-tone extensions, which mimic the subtle color variations found in real hair, so definitely look out for those options.
- The weight of clip-in hair extensions can vary depending on the length, thickness, and desired look. On average, a set of clip-in extensions can range from 120 grams to 220 grams. For individuals with fine or thin hair, extensions around 120-160 grams are usually sufficient to add volume and length without feeling too heavy. If you have medium to thick hair and want a more dramatic look, extensions in the range of 180-220 grams can provide a fuller effect.
Ultimately, it is important to consider your natural hair type, the desired result, and your personal comfort when choosing the weight of clip-in extensions.

Now, for my low-maintenance brides out there, here’s a piece of advice: practice, practice, practice! Don’t wait until the day of your wedding to try out your clip-in hair extensions for the first time. Play around with them, style them, and see how they look with your chosen wedding hairstyle.
Better yet, If you have hired a wedding day hair stylist, absolutely get on the ball order them, and bring them with you to the trial. The more you familiarize yourself with them, test them, and use them before the big day, the more confident and stress-free you’ll feel when it counts. Plus you absolutely will want to make sure the stylist you hired can put them in and work with them to create the style you are looking for before your big day.
And finally, don’t limit yourself to just one set of extensions. You might want to consider investing in two sets, especially if you have short or fine hair. More hair means more options and a fuller, more luxurious look. Plus, hey, why not treat yourself, right?
