Head Games: Clip-In Ponytails & Bangs

THERE’S NOTHING LIKE WIGS OR EXTENSIONS TO GLAM UP A CLIENT’S LOOK, ESPECIALLY DURING THE HOLIDAY SEASON. WEST COAST EDITOR KAMALA KIRK HAS THE LATEST AND GREATEST. 

In the ‘80s when big hair was all that, kiosks offering clip-in extensions in a variety of textures and colors sprung up in malls all over the country. Now that women are more willing than ever to have fun with their hair, they’re also willing to experiment with faux bangs, ponytails or brightly colored extensions they can add

to their own hair at home. Think of them as impulse buys and create an area in your salon where clients can try them out. Assign a junior stylist or assistant to the task of demonstrating how the products work and watch your retail sales soar. 

Hairdo by HairUWear offers a full range of transformative, on-trend items, including clip-in bangs, extensions and ponytails that make it easy for clients to change up their style in a flash with no commitment. To help you learn how to work with the products and recommend them to clients, HairUWear On The Road seminars are offered year-round.
When she was a co- host on The View, popular television personality Sherri Shepherd wore a different wig every day. Now LUXHAIR has created a line of wigs, extensions, clip- in bangs and wrap- around ponytails just for her. Recommend the clip-in bangs for clients who want to take that trend for a spin but may not be ready to chop off their own hair just yet.
Research shows that 40 percent of women will experience some type of hair loss by the time they reach the big 4-0 due to hormones, aging and genetics. While the front hairline remains, women will start noticing that the hair in the crown area is noticeably thinner. The first sign: a widening of the center hair part. DreamCatchers offers the Crown and Glory, a small piece of thin, mesh netting, which is hand- ventilated and easily clips in and out. Clients can use it to camouflage an exposed crown or create a thicker part line.
