Choosing the right clip-in bangs
When it comes to clip-in bangs, one piece fits all is not the case. Hence, it is important that you find the right piece depending on your requirements and style preferences. At 1 Hair Stop, we have two types of clip-in bangs: clip-in bangs and clip-in bangs with side pieces. To figure out which one you should get, there are a few things to consider:
Just like other hair extensions, Clip-in bangs can also be made from either synthetic hair or human hair. Synthetic hair is usually more affordable, but it may not blend as well with your natural hair. Human hair clip-in bangs offer a more natural look and can be styled with heat tools. The 1 Hair Stop clip-in bangs are made from 100% human hair and offer a seamless blend. Our clip-in bangs are heat resistant and can be styled easily using heating tools like straighteners and curling rods. You can also colour them to match your natural hair.
Make sure to choose clip-in bangs that match your natural hair colour. If you're unsure about the shade, try to find a colour chart or get a shade that closely matches your natural hair. 1 Hair Stop clip-in bangs can be easily coloured to match your natural hue.
Clip-in bangs come in different lengths, so make sure to choose a length that complements your face shape and personal style.
Side-swept, blunt, or wispy; not every style suits every face. Hence you should consider the style that will work best with your face shape and hair type. Most clip-in bangs can be styled as per your likes and preferences.
How to wear clip-in bangs
Once you have picked the right bangs, it's to figure out how to attach and remove them. Don't worry, the process is actually very simple, and you'll be able to ace it in the first attempt. Just follow these 4 simple steps:
Step 1: Section your hair
The first step is to create space for the clip-in bangs. Take the bangs and roughly place them on your forehead to get an idea where you want them. Next, take a comb and make a small section at the desired place. Use bobby pins to clip your natural hair away.
Step 2: Clip in your bangs
Now, open the clips and place the bangs in the section that you created. Before securing the clips check if the bangs look even on both sides and once you're happy with the placement, close the clips gently.
Step 3: Blend your bangs
Once your bangs are clipped in, use a comb or brush to blend them with your natural hair. If necessary, you can use a straightening iron or curling wand to style your bangs.
Step 4: Finish with hairspray
To keep your clip-in bangs in place, finish with a light mist of hairspray. This will help them blend seamlessly with your natural hair and ensure a secure fit.
