Clip on hair pieces make switching up your hairstyle as easy as 1-2-3. If you have short hair then you can transform your hairstyle into the trendy side ponytail look by just adding in a few clip on hair pieces. Lauren Conrad is not using any hair extensions, in the photo to the right because she has the length but for those out there that do not have the length or have very fine hair and wish to make their pony tail thicker, then using clip on hair extensions is the way to go.
Scene hair got really popular among teens in 2006 and is still alive and well today. Scene hair; or sometimes called “emo hair” is a hairstyle that follows a similar trend of having fringed bangs, very choppy layers that are vary in lengths from really short to just about the shoulders and the use of long clip on hair pieces (hair extensions). Scene hair also uses hair accessories such as hairclips, bows and headbands which usually have some sort of polka dot design, uses vibrant colors or pastel colors. Scene hair is worn straight through the use of a straightening iron and the hair is then teased to add volume.
Some of the most important accessories for pulling off scene hairstyles is by using clip on hair pieces. These are usually hair extension pieces purchased from beauty supply stores. The hair extensions are usually very vibrant in color like a hot pink, teal blue, white blond or deep black. The pieces are usually used to add streaks of color that stand out from the individual’s natural hair color. For example a young woman that has natural blond hair might buy some clip on hair pieces that are bright red or black so that they stand out against her light blond hair.
In this photo to the left, this teen has natural blond scene hair to which she added some red clip on hair pieces. She also used clip on hair pieces as her side swept bangs and then just used her natural blond hair on top to cover the point of where the extension attaches her to her natural hair.
While on the topic of scene hair, one of the most famous teen “Myspace Scene Queens” by the name of Hannie Dropkick, has a lot of really fun hair styles in which she incorporates the use use of clip on hair pieces. She has gone from having blond hair to accenting with bright teal or hot pink colored clip on hair pieces and she has even done blond and black coontail clip on hair extension pieces.
It’s pretty interesting to see her Myspace (if you can find her real one) and view all of her different looks. She really looks so different from day to day. Just imagine how long it takes for her to get ready each day. The hair alone must take at least an hour.
At any rate she can pull off changing her hair looks from day to day by simply popping in different clip on hair pieces. By the way, if you are interested in how these teens are able to customize their own clip on hair pieces into the colors they want and looks they want then be sure to come back to real hair extensions in the next few days because we will have a few tutorials showing you how you can dye and create your own fun looks with clip on hair extensions.
