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

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.

Gather your hair into either your pigtail or braid and secure with an elastic band.

Double Dutch Braids Hair Tutorial

Double Dutch Braids Hair Tutorial

I can't believe how popular Double Dutch braids have become again lately.  I remember my mother braiding my hair like this every day before school when I was in elementary school!  

These braids are great if you only have a few minutes to pull together a polished look and they are also perfect if you need to take a break from heat styling your hair or extensions.  I also love them for a quick but cute gym hair style.  They keep my hair totally out of my face the whole workout!

We added extensions to our braids to make them extra thick, but you can do them with just your natural hair as well!

I hope you enjoy the video tutorial!

What's In The Box: A girlgetglamorousHAIR Unboxing

What's In The Box: A girlgetglamorousHAIR Unboxing

I honestly don't know why unboxing are so much fun, but they are!  I love a good unboxing.  I wanted to show you everything that comes in your girlgetglamorousHAIR box, so here we go...

1.  Tester piece:  the bottom compartment of your box has a 3.3" tester piece from your full set, so that you can see the color and length against your own hair. You can hold the piece up against the bottom of your hair to make sure the color is a perfect match!  Just make sure to leave it attached to the cardboard in case you want to do an exchange.  Once you've decided it's a match, you can add to the full set, which is located in the main compartment. 

2:  Full set:  The full set is in the top compartment, with a security seal.  Both the 16" and 18" length sets contain 9 wefts of hair.  Each set contains 1 weft that is 7" wide, with four clips, 1 weft that is 5" wide with three clips, 5 wefts that are 3.3" wide with two clips, and 2 wefts that are 1" wide with one clip.

3.  Extra clips:  As clips take a lot of wear and tear, being bent back and forth as they are clipped in and taken out, they tend to be the first thing that can wear out on every set of hair extensions.  So all girlgetglamorousHAIR extensions include two extra clips in the box.  Clips are super easy to sew back on and this will help extend the life of your extensions!

4: Storage box:  I designed every detail of the signature coral box myself and I'm proud to say that each box is made to last!  The boxes are designed with heavy duty materials to be kept as keepsake storage boxes.  You know those bobby pins and hair ties that you can never seem to hold onto? They can go in the bottom compartment that the tester weft came in.  The top compartment can hold a variety of combs, headbands, and hair accessories.  The divider flap folds down for extended room for brushes with longer handles.  I wanted you to be able to keep all your hair accessories in one place. The hair extensions can also be stored in the box if they are straight.  However, if they are curled, I highly recommend storing them in the girlgetglamorousHAIR storage bag (coming soon), so they won't have to be restyled.  (Heat damage is the main reason you'll have to replace your extensions.)  

5.  Instructions:  Instructions on where to clip in each weft on your head.  These can be taken out of the box and left on your bathroom counter or put into your storage bag for a quick reminder when you want to wear your extensions.  I love a good YouTube instructional video, but sometimes you just need a fast reminder!  This was also printed on heavier weight cardstock, so you can hold onto it for as long as you need.
