Hair extensions are a great way to add length or volume to your current mane, whether you’re looking for tape-in extensions, sew-in extensions or glue-in extensions. However, aside from the hefty cost that can set you back up to $1500 for the installation and color matching process, they can also be rather damaging to your existing tresses and scalp if not done correctly. The best and budget-friendly alternative to in-salon hair extensions are DIY clip-in styles, which are surprisingly easy to install yourself and allow you to play and experiment with different looks with the commitment and financial set-up.
While there are many different types and quality levels for clip-in hair extensions to choose from, you can find real human hair extensions (they look and feel the most natural) without having to drain your entire savings account. We’ve rounded up a few of our current favorite styles for your consideration below.
