How to Apply Hair Extensions

How to Apply Weft Hair Extensions

Things You'll Need

  • Rat-tail comb
  • Clip
  • Scissors


  1. Create a horizontal part across the back of your head about 2 to 3 inches from the nape of your neck. Clip the rest of your hair away.
  2. Measure the part and cut a weft slightly smaller than the measurement.
  3. Apply a thin line of glue along the rough side of the band at the top of the weft.
  4. Press the glue-side of the weft along the part, about 1/4 inch from the roots. Lightly press your fingers all along the weft.
  5. Hold the extension in place for about 30 seconds to allow the glue to dry. Unclip your hair and create another horizontal part across the back of your head about 1/2 inch above the first part.
  6. Repeat the applications until you reach just below the crown of your head. Extensions applied any higher will be visible.
  7. Make a horizontal part about 1/2 inch above your left ear. Cut a weft slightly smaller than the part and repeat the applications until you reach just below your temple. Repeat this process for the other side of your hair.

How to Apply Clip In Hair Extensions

Things You'll Need

  • Clip-in hair extensions
  • Comb
  • Hair clips

1. Make a part above the nape from ear to ear to attach the shortest hair extension.

2. Smooth the rest of your hair away from the part and secure with a hair clip.

3. Slide the comb of the clip onto the roots of the part, and push the clip closed to secure. Tease thin hair at the root of the part so the comb has more bulk to attach to.

4. Remove hair from the hair clip and part it again from ear to ear, 1 to 1 1/2 inch above the first extension. Apply a longer hair extension and continue adding to the back of the head.

5. Attach the shorter pieces to the sides of your head, above the ears, to frame your face, and blend hair.

6. Comb your hair to blend the extension hair with real hair.

How to Apply Tape Hair Extensions

Things You'll Need

  • Track Tape
  • Track Extensions.
  • Comb
  • Hair Dryer.

1. Tape in Extensions are simple to apply and a full head of hair can typically be done in about 30 minutes. Tape in Hair Extensions can be done at home although I do recommend you have a friend or stylist help you put them in so that you can get the best results possible.

2. The process for applying tape in extensions is much like that of applying clip in hair extensions except instead of clips, the weft is taped into your hair using a special adhesive. Your hair is parted and the extensions are taped onto a layer of hair close to the roots and then covered up by a top layer of hair

3. Human Hair Tape in Extensions like all human hair extensions you can use your styling iron, curling iron and hair care products on them as you do your own natural hair.

How to Apply Micro Ring Hair Extensions

Things You'll Need

  • Pre-Tipped Micro Ring Extensions.
  • Micro Ring Tubes (Cylinders)
  • Pulling Needle.
  • Closer tool (Pliers)

1. Shampoo and condition the natural hair with a mild moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. It is very important to install hair extensions in clean, dry hair. Because micro rings can last for a while, you want all the dirt and debris to have been removed from the hair and scalp so the pores aren't clogged. Completely dry the hair before continuing.

2. Separate the hair into four workable sections: two in the front and two in the back. Hold the hair in place with clips.

3. Push the pulling needle through one of the micro ring tubes. Push it all the way through, so the needle is showing on the other side.

4. Starting with one of the back sections, partition off 1 inch of the hair in a straight line. Separate the hair again into very small sections. Starting with one small section, slide the hair through the micro ring tube.

5. Take a portion of the extension hair and insert it into the tube as well. The hair should already be in pre-tipped portions. Work with one portion per section.

6. Use the closer tool to flatten the micro ring. This closes the tube and attaches the extension hair to the natural hair.

7. Repeat Steps 4 to 7 on the remaining sections of the hair until all of the extensions have been applied. To make the hair look completely natural and cover up the micro rings, leave a small section in the front undone. When you're finished, curl or style the hair as desired.
