It is suggested that you should apply for clip-in hair extensions since they do not damage your real hair. You can just clip them in and clip them out at the end of the day without ripping out your actual short hair.
You do not have to wear them all the time, instead, you just pop them in whenever you find a suitable occasion to add length to your short hair.
Below are the 7 tips on how to blend clip-in hair extensions well with short hair.
Tip 1: You should get a thick set of hair extensions. The fact is that the thick set of hair extensions will give you more coverage and help to blend more seamlessly with your shorter hair strands as it is capable of bouncing out the density of your hair from top to bottom. As a result, your hair will look more natural and less scraggly.
In addition, when you clip in hair extensions, the majority of the thickness will be at the top of your hair while the ends will be thinner because your hair is short. Therefore, we recommend you to buy a thin set of hair extensions to balance the volume from top to bottom.

Tip 2: It will be a lot easier if you have a single tone hair color to match hair extensions to it. In the case of two-tone colors, the best tip is to use two sets of hair extensions with different colors and blend the two sets together to create a mixed effect.

Tip 3: Make sure that you choose a shade of clip-in hair extensions that matches the color of your hair exactly so that your own hair is blended more seamlessly into the extensions.

Tip 4: You are recommended to get your short hair cut into layers because if you have layers in your natural hair, it will be much easier to blend the clip-in hair extensions with your hair ends.
As a matter of fact, blunt ends always make it difficult to conceal regardless if your hair is short or long but especially if it is short.

Tip 5: If your hair is short and thick, pull back most of your hair and just leave a tiny little piece out at the bottom. Twist this piece around and grab some bobby pins to secure. The purpose of this step is to facilitate the application of the very first bunch of extensions.
Clip the hair into your real hair
Tip 6: If your hair is short and thin, you should clip in the last wefts at least 3 inches away from your hair part so that you have enough of your own hair to hide the wefts.
Tip 7: We suggest waving or curling your natural short hair with the extensions. Styling your hair this way helps your shorter strands to intertwine with the extensions. Besides, the shorter ends are not as noticeable.
When you get these tips, you will realize that it is not as difficult as you may think to blend clip-in hair extensions with your short hair.
