Hair Extensions 101-Using Clip-In Hair Extensions in Thin Hair

One of the best ways to quickly transform your look is by changing your hairstyle. However, some people find it challenging to commit to specific cuts and colors. Thankfully, a great way to change your look without committing to a cut or style is by using clip-in hair extensions.

Anyone can use clip-in hair extensions, but it can be a little bit more challenging for people with thinner hair. This is because people with thin hair may experience some poking through your hair into the scalp, or sometimes the clip won't hold due to your hair's delicate texture.

However, having thin hair shouldn't stop you from using clip-in extensions, and you should know that there are techniques you can follow to help attach them and blend them into your natural hair. If you're ready, let's get to it!

Find a safe zone and a solid base for your wefts

Before you attach your clip-in hair extensions, the first thing you should do is to find a safe zone on your head. This is the area on your head where your clips won't be seen. For fine hair, the safe zone is usually below your eyebrow line, somewhere behind your ears.

Next, you'll need to create a solid base for your wefts to avoid your clips from sliding throughout the day. To do this, apply a small amount of hairspray to the root section of the base and tease this area to add texture. This will help secure your clip-ins, which also prevents tugging.

Choose your wefts and position them accordingly

Since you have thin hair, you don't need to use all of your wefts. This way, you won't need to struggle to find a space for each of your wefts. Instead, choose the right type of thickness and length that you want to clip into your hair.

After choosing your wefts, position them properly. Make sure that the clips aren't seen and that the extensions are adequately blended with your hair to give it a more natural look.

Since you have thin hair, pay close attention to your crown because sometimes, your clip-ins may peak through. You can tease your crown to add more texture and volume to your hair and hide those clips!

Style your extensions

If you have naturally layered hair, you should also layer your hair extensions. By adding layers to your hair extensions, you'll help your clip-ins blend more seamlessly and create a smooth transition with the ends of your natural hair.

Besides having your hair extensions layered, you can also style your hair by curling it, giving it waves, and doing a bombshell blowout. This will help hide awkward extension ends while giving your hair some extra bounce and volume.


Even if you have thin hair, you can still work hair extensions and give yourself a quick hair transformation. By following these tips and using the best hair extensions, you'll instantly give your crowning glory that much-needed upgrade, and you'll definitely make heads turn with your new look.
