Wefted hair extensions may be considered "old school" but they can be super affordable and easy to find. I have used them for all kinds of things over the years. From making one of the first versions of tape in extensions back in the early 2000's to custom clip ins for my clients.
My clients ask me all the time if they can make clip in extensions out of weft hair. The answer is yes, but it was always a long tedious undertaking. Sewing clips onto wefted hair extensions is not fun at all. It just wasn’t worth the time to sew all those clips onto a bunch of extension wefts.
The real question that needed to be answered was: Can you turn tape in extensions into clip ins, EASILY? Finally, I can say YES! After several years of trial and error I am happy to announce you can easily convert tape extensions to clip ins.
