When using clip-in extensions, visualize the style before creating it because upstyle and braid placement will determine where to apply the extensions.
For this look, Antonio created three braids up top—one in the crown area and one on both sides of the head—so he didn’t apply the extensions higher than the occipital or on the sides. (Watch at 23 minutes!)
Use The Right Products
Adding length, fullness and braids for a perfectly-styled end result won’t happen without the right products. Here’s what’s always in Antonio’s kit:
Hairdo USA 10-piece Clip-In Extension Kit because they give him the chance to transform any client quickly and without any commitment. (Plus, the extensions are made of real human hair, come in 13 different shades and feature a pressure-sensitive clip for ultimate comfort.)
Root touch-up spray (both blonde and brunette) to hide part lines and transparent spots between braided sections. (Brides and festival-goers don’t want to see their scalp line!)
Oribe Dry Texture Spray to keep clip-ins in place—apply to the root and tease lightly before applying the extensions. This will ensure they stay put without becoming loose or exposed. And if he needs to tame frizzy hair, Antonio goes for the Oribe Shine Spray!
