Clip-ins or Clipped Ends?

Clip-ins have become the most convenient hair accessory. Think about it like this, a woman who has short hair but misses her long hair can instantly use her clip-ins to add length. Or a woman who has long hair but wants more thickness, she can add clip-ins for volume. It's a win-win.


While clips-ins can be an easy fix for any hairstyle, it is essential to keep your natural hair trimmed and well maintained while using them. Just because the clip-ins cover up a few split ends, it does not solve the issue. You will still need your ends clipped eventually.

As we know, hair installs are more long-term than putting in clip ins. The installation method of hair extension involves creating a horizontal cornrow in your hair then sewing your hair extension into it with the help of a needle and cotton thread. Installs can last up to two to three months.

On the other hand, you can install clip-ins yourself, and you can achieve more versatility with styling. They are great for short-term styling. They are wefts of hair that come with clips attached to them at the top. All you need to do is clip them on at the roots of your hair.

The best thing is that clip-ins can be put in and taken out anytime you want. You can buy them in multiple colors and styles to change up your look on a regular basis. However, they cannot be left in for extended periods of time as the clips can cause your hair to break. Depending on where you purchase your clip ins, it's probably best to invest in good quality clip-ins so they last longer. Indique's Studio Collection Perfect Ten Clip-Ins serve as a great example of good premium hair clip-ins that can last just as long as a wefted bundle.
