There’s a common misconception that clip-in hair extensions require more maintenance than your natural hair. While extensions have their own care considerations, we’ve found that they don’t require any extra effort.

Care for your 100% European Remy extensions like you’d care for the hair on your head. With the right routine, you’ll have no trouble maintaining your gorgeous hair pieces.

That said, there are always ways to save time without sacrificing personal style. Over the years, we’ve discovered a few tried-and-true hair extension hacks that make mornings so much easier. These little tips can help you streamline your daily routines and get the most out of your extensions.

We’ve gathered our 5 favorite clip-in hair extension hacks below. Keep reading to learn how to take back your time while boosting your confidence!

1. Pre-Style Extensions For Upscale Occasions

This hack is for anyone who has ever found themselves scrambling to get ready for a fancy event! We’re always underestimating the time it takes to curl our hair for a fancy dinner or party. Instead of scrambling, you can curl your extensions in advance when you know you have some extra time.

Always use a heat-protectant spray before heat-styling your human hair extensions. We find it easiest to style them while on a mannequin head or stand. Then, simply hang them up to cool. They’ll be ready and waiting for you when it’s time to dash off to your upscale dinner!

2. Achieve Messy Bun Magic

Some days simply call for an intentionally low-effort-looking hairstyle. The classic “messy bun” is one of our favorites. Many women think they can’t achieve this laid-back everyday look with extensions. That’s where one of our favorite halo hair extension hacks comes in!

Start by putting on your hair extensions as normal, then pull your hair and extensions into a low ponytail. Then, twist the full length of your luxurious pony.

Wrap the twist around the base of your ponytail, hiding the hair elastic. Pin it loosely in place with bobby pins. It should have that intentionally messy look without feeling heavy or insecure.

3. Proper Storage Saves You Time

It’s tempting to throw your extensions on the vanity before crawling into bed at night. While this may shorten your evening routine, you’ll be doing your extensions a disservice.

Storing your extensions improperly causes them to tangle, which leads to damage. They’ll begin looking frizzy and ragged, and you may even notice breakage. This adds time to your morning routine, as it takes longer to get your hair looking the way you like. It can also cost you money, as your luxury extensions will not last as long.

All that to say, take a little extra time in the evening and put them away properly! You’ll be glad you did!

4. Clip Extensions Upside Down To Hide Shorter Hairs

A lot of women wear hair extensions to add length to their natural hair. This works great if your hair is fairly short to begin with. What do you do if you have medium-length hair and the shorter pieces hang out all over the place?

Consider clipping in your extensions upside down! This can be a little bit tricky, and you may have to practice a few times before you master it. Aim to clip your extensions right against the hair at the nape of your neck. It will help to hide those sneaky shorter hairs that tend to stick out.

Pull your extensions forward and watch as those annoying shorter hairs vanish!

5. Prioritize Quality Hair Extensions
