Famous Celebrity Who Love Wearing Clip-Ins

When you search about celebrities who love wearing clip-ins, Chrissy Teigen’s name will surely pop up. She has always been candid about how she loves wearing clip-ins. She loves the clip-ins because they are easy to attach and remove.

How to Attach Clip-Ins

Before you begin, your hair must be clean and not greasy. Don’t put any hair products on your natural hair. 

You need to do the following steps:

  • Make sure that your extensions match the color of your hair. If your extensions are a bit wavy and you want it straight to match your hair, you can use a flat iron to straighten it. Don’t forget to spray your extensions with some heat protectant.
  • Divide your hair horizontally into two sections. Gather the upper section on the top of your head and secure them with a hair clamp. The line should be the place where you intend to put your clip-ins. If you have thin hair, you may use a fine-toothed comb to tease the hair in the lower section. Tease the part near the roots. This can help the clips get a better grip.
  • Open the clips of the extensions and align the base with clips along the dividing line. Snap the clips gently in place, and make sure that they are secured.
  • Release the hair of the upper section and smooth the hair using a brush with nylon-looped bristles to blend your natural hair and the extensions. 

The whole process takes around 5 to 15 minutes to finish. You don’t need to put any pressure, heat, or chemicals that may cause damage to your hair. 


Tape-ins are semi-permanent hair extensions, and it is recommended to get them attached with the help of a hairdresser or stylist. Tape-ins are pre-glued strands of hair that must be taped or glued to your natural hair.

If you are someone with thin hair, attaching the tape-ins can be tricky. The hairdresser needs to make sure that your natural hair can conceal the tape and make your extensions look natural.

How to Attach Tape-Ins

Although it is not recommended to do it on your own, this is how you attach the tape-ins:

  • Wash your hair first, and then dry. Don’t put anything on it after drying.
  • Divide the hair into sections, exposing the scalp, where you intend to put the extensions. You can secure the hair of each section with a hair clamp or tie to keep it up and out of the way when you attach the extensions. The length of each sectioned part must be the same with the pre-taped base of the extensions.
  • Use the pointed tip of the comb’s handle to get some strands of the untied hair along the line of the sectioned part. The idea is to sandwich the extensions in between your natural hair.
  • Get the extensions and attach them one by one. The extensions must be sandwiched in between your natural hair. Don’t forget to remove the adhesives when you attach your tape-ins. Press a bit each time you attach your tape-in to secure it.

Hair Type, Lifespan, and Cost

Tape-ins are suitable for medium to thick hair, although someone with thin hair can also wear them. They usually last for 6 to 8 weeks. The tape-ins usually cost $200 and up.
