Installing hair extensions can be a great way to add length, volume, and thickness to your natural hair. However, in order to achieve a seamless and natural-looking result, it's important to properly section your hair before installing the extensions. In this blog post, we'll provide some helpful tips and advice on how to section your hair for hair extension installs.
Step 1: Divide Your Hair into Sections The first step in sectioning your hair is to divide it into sections. Start by dividing your hair into two sections - a top section and a bottom section. Use a comb to create a part that runs from ear to ear, then clip the top section out of the way.
Step 2: Create a Horizontal Part Next, create a horizontal part at the nape of your neck, dividing the bottom section into two. Use a clip to secure the top half of the bottom section out of the way.
Step 3: Create a Vertical Part Create a vertical part in the remaining bottom section, dividing it in half. This will create two smaller sections of hair.
Step 4: Install the First Weft Starting at the nape of your neck, install the first weft of hair extensions in the horizontal part. Use a clip to secure the weft in place, making sure it is as close to the scalp as possible.
Step 5: Install the Second Weft Moving up to the first vertical part, install the second weft of hair extensions. Again, use a clip to secure the weft in place.
Step 6: Install the Third Weft Install the third weft of hair extensions in the second vertical part, again securing it with a clip.
Step 7: Repeat the Process Continue repeating this process, working your way up your head and installing wefts of hair extensions in each horizontal and vertical part. Be sure to leave a small section of hair at the top of your head free of extensions, as this will help to conceal the wefts and create a more natural-looking result.
By following these steps, you can properly section your hair for hair extension installs and achieve a seamless, natural-looking result.
