Cutting your bangs is a great way to update your hairstyle and try something new. However, maintaining bangs can be a headache as they require frequent trims and daily upkeep. On top of their maintenance, if you get tired of having bangs, they will take forever to grow out. In the meantime, your outgrown bangs can be a nightmare to manage.
If you want to try having bangs but are scared to have your hair cut, bang hair extensions are a great temporary solution. They will create the hairstyle you are looking for and meet your need for bangs, without having to chop your hair off. Not only are these commitment-free bangs super easy to place and take off, but they are also comfortable to wear and can be easily blended with your real hair.
Bang extensions are designed with one or more clips that attach them to the roots of your own hair. The clips keep the bangs secure in place, even on a windy day.
Just like your own hair, you can trim your brand-new clip-in bangsto the desired lengthand thickness to fit your face and hairstyle. You can also style them in many ways to fit your liking.
Clip-in bangs come in two different hair types, human hair or synthetic hair, and each has its own benefits. For instance, human hair bangs can be blow-dried, heat straightened and curled to create any hairstyle you like. However, some synthetic hair bangs are not heat-friendly, so make sure to read the instructions before applying any heat tool.
Another difference between bang types is the ability to apply color. Human hair bangs benefit from their ability to be dyed into any color you wish, while unfortunately, synthetic bangs do not take color.
Why are Clip-In Bangs Right for You?
- Great for testing: Bang hair extensions are a great way to test out bangs, both for length and shape, before committing to such a big change. If you love the idea of bangs but aren’t quite sure if it will be right for you, clip-in bangs are a perfect way to see how your bangs would look before you make “the chop”.
- Removable: Some women would love to have bangs, but they cannot get used to hair that continually touches their forehead and blocks their vision. Thankfully, this is not the case with temporary bangs! Since they are so easy to place and remove, you can simply wear these for as long as you want or need, and then simply take them off.
- Volume booster: Clip-in bangs will give more fullness and volume to fine or thinning hair. If you would like to fill in your thinning crown area, but do not want to wear a full wig, clip in fringe bangs are a great compromise. They will instantly give the impression of fuller hair and are easily camouflaged in your own hair.
- Hide imperfections: Did you accidentally cut your real bangs too short? Detachable bangs are the best answer to your problem. This clip-in fringe will add some extra length needed to hide your real bangs until they are able to grow back your desired length. Or perhaps you are in a hurry on your way out of the house? Clip-in bangs are a great way to hide unwashed hair when you are rushed and want to look fantastic.
- Give you extra oomph: Bang hairpieces can instantly revamp your look when you want a completely different style. Not only do they work for all different hairstyles, but they can also make you look much younger. And you don’t need to worry about keeping your hair down to camouflage the clips! Temporary bangs look cute with a messy bun or a ponytail and are adorable when worn with a hat or headband.
- Complete your costume: Bang extensions are a great option for your next Halloween costume, special cosplay events, or a costume party. You can even add bang extensions to your wig for even more flexibility and options. Enjoy being a chameleon and have fun wearing them!
Tips for Perfect Blending
The key to clip-in bangs is blending your temporary bangs with your own hair to make sure no one knows your secret. A little creativity helps to make them look more realistic. Here are some tricks to make sure nobody will know that part of your hair is not yours.
- Color is everything. Make sure to color match your temporary bangs to your own hair color. If your bang extensions are made of human hair, dye them to achieve the perfect match.
- When you cut your clip-in bangs to the desired length, point the scissors vertically and cut into the ends to soften the line and get a more textured look.
- Synthetic bangs can have a shine that is different from your natural hair. Use dry shampoo or baby powder to tone down the synthetic shine and match the texture of your natural hair.
- Use colored dry shampoo for a better color match between the clip-in bangs and your own hair if needed.
- Wear a headband or scarf at the clip location to mask imperfect matches in color and texture.
- Run your fingers through the bangs or fluff lightly with a brush to blend the bangs into the rest of your hair.
- Clip the bangs at the root and cover the clips with your own hair to make them invisible.
