How to Put in Hair Extensions at Home
Brad: Hey guys it’s Brad Graham from BradGrahamTV.com and today we’re going to show you another form of hair extension that we use at the shop and these are really great and fun. They are very, very fast and here’s the greatest thing, you can do it at home. You know instead of going to shop, blowing $300.00, $400.00 on extensions a lot of times—. These are really fast, they’re great, it’s real hair, remy hair basically 100% human hair and I’m going to bring this up so you can see they have this little prom clips on the back can you see that? And what’s great about these clips is they really fine into the hair. A lot of them will be loops. You put then in your hair and basically they’ll come out but I’m going to show you how we do it, Michelle here.
Basically, it usually come with 5, 6 sets, if you will. This particular set you see that we’re using has 8 sets. It has four small ones which we place at the front sides. It has two mediums and two large so we’re going to start right through the center back and here’s how you put them in. Just popping right to the center that will leave a little bit of hair at the bottom and her hair is not that short. It has a medium length hair but everybody wants that killer long, long hair. So, just taking that section right through the center back, what we’ll do is we’ll take our first set and this is our medium set with three prongs. And simply placing it in and just popping they push in just like that taking on this side pushing it in and right on the other side clipping it into the hair and once you just flatten this out they’ll pop in and they’ll hold like that. There’s one set.
Part your hair again and I should go about an inch above the next part. You don’t want to go too high. You know a lot of times I go put them up too high and thought the end was start to—and then we’ll take a second set, same as the first one three clips again. Right through the center back, pinch it in. Pinch the side and just push it like that. You have to go in and if you say are they going to stay in? Oh yeah, I mean I'm pulling on it, they’re not moving. The last thing you might do is be in the club you know he make yourself like—you're shaking all your good stuff and your hair comes off, that’s lovely. That’s a good way to elude your boyfriend or—at the same time. So that’s two sets and that’s fast.
Here we go, round three. Now this is the longest one. This is right at the top of the ear so we’re going to turn all this hair up. She has very fine hair and you know what I love about extensions, even more than the fact that they just extend here is they beef it up, they make it fatter, they make it thicker. A lot of my clients like Michelle has fine hair and knowing that they want their hair longer because they feel like their hair is fine. They grow and ends up looking like this you know like this Gallahan from Lord of the Rings or like the coconut, the springs if you will. This is a great way of beefing up your hair.
Now this obviously is a lot longer. So by just clipping that in that’s going to leave that area not covered so here’s what I suggest to do. Just above the ear, I’m going to pop this section here and lock that in. Right just about the three-inch point just behind your ear and on this side. Lock that one in. Now obviously that’s done this. With your next one, we’re going to overlay and this is the most important part with this and this is why we look more natural at the end.
Once again over the ear, right here I’m just finished around, you can see I’m overlaying this one into that one. Right to the center of that, right to the center back, you can see how I'm low on the head I’m not applying on the head and you realize why when we get it done. Now popping that now, we have four of these—and what these are meant to do is go on the temple region right on the sides so I’m just going to pull this hair out of the way and get another clip and I’ll show you where I place this. These are the ones that make it or break it if you will for your hair extensions. Popping this over, you don’t want it too high so we’re going to take this one here and we’re going to pop it right just behind basically with the ear is and then one more right behind it. This fills in that frontal region. Okay, pretty cool. Now we plug this one on this other side and I’ll stick it around and I think this is not you know rocket science. Probably too wild and fancy here what is you know basically sticking them in.
Pop on the side now and pull this up. You can see out of here is the one that we just did. Take these two and insert and right behind there just popping this in, great thing to do. Now, just pulling that hair down, you can see now spin around. You can see how much we’ve actually extended her hair once I comb this through a little bit and I wish I had a powder brush that’s okay. We’re just going to pull this all the way around to the back and you can see her hair from the extension here, let’s comb this down gently and it will all blend in next. So it’s just like her hair, you see that.
So now she’s got from that one length of hair she had to obviously lighter hair on the front. Cool, nice long extensions. So a great way really fast, really quick wonderful ways to putting your own hair extensions and gain that extra length that you know normally wouldn’t have. Guys thanks for watching. This is Brad Graham from BradGrahamTV.com, more tips coming so I’ll see you next time.
