My Hair Extensions Tutorial, UNDER $60!!

 I FINALLY made a video tutorial on my hair extensions! 



YouTube Video: HERE 


I get tons of sweet compliments on my hair and people are usually really surprised when I tell them they are extensions that I do myself. I have been using hair extensions for over 7 years now. I have tried every kind of hair extension out there and this worked the best and was the most cost effective! Oh yeah, did I mention my hair extensions are under $60?? Yep! Not only will you look awesome but you don't have to go broke doing so! :) Let me know if you have any additional questions!

  1. Love the tutorial. Can you post a little more about how to care for the extensions you use (wash, when to replace, etc.)?

    Thanks!!

    PS--your kids are adorable!

    1. Oh thank you! I try not to wash them very often, maybe every two weeks. I replace them once they start to get not as soft... about every 3-4 months and that's when I wear them every day. If you don't wear them every day you can go longer. :)

  2. I cut my hair off into a short chin length bob. I really miss my length. How long did you let your hair grow out before you started using hair extensions? Thank You!

    1. Nope, I cut it right before I got engaged and wanted long hair for my engagement pictures and wedding. So I waited about a month after I cut it to my chin then put in the 18 in extensions.

    2. Ok great! Hope I can figure them out with my hair being so short!! Thanks!

  3. Are they human hair or synthetic?? do you curl your real hair first and then put in the extensions and curl those after?? How often do you wash them? Thank you!!! I am super excited about this because I was actually just looking for some today and it was going to be 160 bucks for a set of clip ins!

    1. They are 100% human hair. I usually put them in then curl them so that they blend in with my hair better. And I try not to wash them very often, maybe like every two weeks! :)

    2. I've also been using the "sassy" extensions for years special occasions! I'm so glad I watched your YouTube video, I never thought of super gluing them!! Such a wonderful idea, I was so scared to replace them because the thought of sewing them again freaked me out! Glad to know gluing works

  5. Hi McKinli!! Love you and your blog, so helpful!! What do you wash your hair extensions with? Normal shampoo? Do you hair spray them after you curl them or does the curl usually hold well on its own? Thanks dear! -Brittany

    1. Hey! I use normal shampoo and wash them about every two weeks or so. I spray them after I am done out of habit but they would totally hold the curl if I didn't!

    2. Thanks McKinli! So helpful! you are a sweetheart!

  6. love this post! I totally agree with you on the glue! I got the fusion extensions one and it was A NIGHTMARE to put it lightly lol! My hair is about shoulder length and I usually wear it straight.. do you think that I should wait a little while longer before I get clip ins?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I chopped my hair to an A Line and got extensions a month later so it was probably way shorter! As long as you can blend them well it doesn't matter what length you have! :)

  8. This is great! Ever since I cut my hair into a bob it will not grow past its current length! How do you match the extension color to your hair?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They have a color that match perfect to my hair luckily. If they don't have one that matches your hair color get a light one then your hair and dye it darker.. Dying it from light to dark usually doesn't work as well.

    2. Lucky you!! But ok thank you!! I'm so excited to try these!!

  9. How many packs of extensions do you use? I was at sallys today looking at these, and they just seemed really thin, but then again, I've never used extensions, so I don't know!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Just one! I used to buy two and honestly it was way too much! It would weigh my hair down and even give me head aches! I think one bag is the perfect amount and actually looks more natural.

  10. why do you put the super short ones at the top? i didn't understand that part..thank you for the tutorial!

  11. Loved the tutorial. I've been making my own extensions for years but I have always sewn the clips to the track. Never even thought about gluing them. Genius! I have a random question for you though, what do you use to add the text to your photos like the ones above? Is it an app?

    ReplyDelete
  12. McKinli,

    I make my own extensions too! SO much cheaper and SO much better for your hair than the permanent kind! I LOVE your idea of super gluing the strands and clips together...I always dread the sewing process...and sticking my fingers! I'm definitely gonna try this out next time. :) Love reading along, you and your family are adorable! http://letalately.blogspot.com/

  13. Location, Area, Location. Where you get ones extensions done is another factor in the buying price of hair extensions. Getting your extensions done from a hair salon on Rodeo Travel in Beverly Hills are often little more expensive when compared with getting them done at a smaller town.

  15. Wow! Your hair extension doesn't look like it's worth $60! I have a friend who spent $500-$1000 for her hair extensions only to have it removed after 2 months. I thought it was a waste of money, but she thought otherwise. Although, she did looked pretty awesome with her hair extensions. I just didn't like the fact that she spent hundreds of dollars for a set of hair.

  21. I'm amongst the others in being surprised that you've got extensions in. You do great work at putting them in and having it blend with your natural hair. Perhaps the fact that your extensions are human hair also helps. That aside, great tutorial and extension care tips you've got here, McKinli! -Issac @ SNV Hair
