How to Clip In Extensions + Hide Wefts for Pigtails and Double Braids

Double braids and pigtails are perfect summer hairstyles. 

They are quick, easy, and require little-to-no heat styling.  Which is great when it starts to get super hot out!  I love adding a few pieces of extensions to make mine longer and add volume. 

I get a lot of questions on how to hide the wefts so they don't show at the part.  This video goes step-by-step over how and where I clip in each piece for perfect pigtails or double braids.

Here is the video tutorial, it's only around four minutes long!

 

And if you are more the reading type, here are the written instructions:

Step 1 | Part + Section Hair

Part hair vertically into two sides for the braids or pigtails.  Then horizontally section each side to add in the extensions.  I like to start clipping in my extensions right above my ear.

Step 2 | Backcomb Lightly + Add Texture Spray

Backcombing and adding texture spray will give your hair a bit more "grip" and make the extensions more comfortable for all-day wear.

Step 3 | Add Extensions

You'll be using only the wefts from our "ponytail pack."  These are the versatile 3" wefts and 1" weft pieces from your set.  Put the 5" and 7" weft back onto your storage hanger, you won't need them for this hair style.

Clip the first weft in, focusing on adding it to the center of the section.  This way it will be hidden at the front and back parts. 

Then section your hair again, about half an inch above this weft, and repeat step 2 before adding in another weft.  Repeat a third time and add in your third and last weft on this side.

Step 4 | Create Volume at The Top

Add a little volume with teasing or texture spray at the roots to balance the volume and length created with the extensions at the ends.
