Clip In vs. Sew InEach of the three types of hair extensions mentioned above can be purchased as “clip in” extensions or “sew in” extensions. For the record, we recommend clip in extensions. Attaching sew in extensions is a lengthy process, usually done by a trained professional. They can also cause damage to your hair, and are harder to maintain. Clip in extensions, on the other hand, can be applied in a matter of seconds—no professional help required. They do not damage your hair, and removal is just as easy as application. If you are looking to hustle out the door in the morning (and who isn’t?), it is great to know that you can apply your hair extensions in a snap. And clip ins will not easily fall out either—they are specially engineered to stay put.
