Easily Convert Tape In Extensions to Clip Ins - No Sewing Required.
Tape in hair extensions are my favorite type of extension. They are super easy to use and remove. I have done thousands of applications over the years. I have had a lot of clients ask me if they could turn tape extensions into clip ins.
The answer is yes, but it was always a long tedious undertaking. Sewing clips onto the base of tape in extensions is not fun at all. It just wasn’t worth the time to sew all those clips onto a bunch of tape extension panels. Can you imagine having to clip in every single individual panel onto your head every time you wanted to wear them?
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.

How to Make Tape in Hair Extensions Into Clip in’s | Big Kizzy Snap Clips
I invented Big Kizzy Snap Clips so you can easily convert tape extensions to clip ins - WITHOUT SEWING! I also solved the issue with having all the individual tape panels... Now you can combine 3 tape sandwiches into 1 clip in panel in a matter of minutes!
What You’ll Need:
- Big Kizzy Snap Clips - 1 package comes with 12 no sew extension clips, 9 liners and 36 tabs of extension tape. Enough to make 4 - 5” panels.
- How many do I need? 2 to 3 sets of Kizzy Clips are recommended for a full set of clip in hair extensions. It's best to error on the side of too many.
- Metal Tipped Comb
- Blueberry Sealing Tool (or a pair of needle nose pliers)
- Tape in Hair Extensions - it takes 3 panels to make 1 clip in extensions. For thicker hair types you can use up to 6 panels.
- Flat Iron
- Scissors - Not your hair cutting shears of course!
- Prepare your Kizzy Snap Clips. Gently pull in and upward motion on the "J" Hook. Not too much! See next photo.
- J Hook should be slightly open like this. Opening up the J Hook will help get the Snap Clip over the tape extension panels.
- Side view of how the Kizzy Snap Clips will look when properly attached to the tape panel.
TIPS & TRICKS
- Wait at least 48 hours before getting the base of the clip in extension wet.
- Do not use conditioner or oil based products on the area where the Kizzy Snap Clips attach to the tape panels.
- When shampooing and conditioning be careful when the base of the clip in extension is wet. Once completely dry - panel will be ready to style and wear.
- Keep hot tools over 200 degrees away from the base.
- Remember to keep your Kizzy Snap Clips. They can be reused.
