Hair Trade I&K clip in extensions

I've dabbled with hair extensions before but I always face the same two problems. 1 - My hair is an array of ashy blonde tones and I can never find anything that matches, 2 - They never stay in. I had some put in for my wedding which did manage to last the whole day but I had a host of hairdressers and around 3 cans of hairspray to make that happen!

So when I was asked if I wanted to try out some extensions from Hairtrade I'll admit, I was a little apprehensive at first, but I've recently cut a load of hair off and was missing my longer tresses so I thought I'd give them a go. I went with the shade P18/613 in 14 inch which do look a bit stripy on the website but they're honestly really blendable in real life and I was rather chuffed with the colour match.
So onto my next problem, how to stop the clips from falling halfway down my head within five minutes. Google gave a simple answer which proved easy and effective - backcombing. Lots and lots of back coming. I parted the back of my hair into sections and on the top inch of each section went mental with my Denman dress out brush which matted my hair enough to sink the clips in and hold them into place.

So this is the final result! I'm actually really happy with how they look, I've had clip in extensions before that have looked really wiry and fake, but these are so darn soft and silky. They come as straight extensions but I've always found that curling them makes it less obvious to see where your hair ends and the extensions begin, I just did my usual with ghds to get these waves.

Do you use clip ins? If so let me know any more tricks for styling/keeping them in place!


  1. These look great, I find spraying a line of hair spray along the areas of hair your clipping them to helps them grip on more. Hope this helps, it's the most annoying thing when they start slipping ha xx

  2. They look really good, you wouldn't know they were extensions. I love my clip ins!

  3. These match so well although I do love your shorter hair!
