Loose hair falls on clips by *chelseagirl*

Post by IKickShins » Mon Aug 25, 2008 7:10 pm

Originally posted on the old HH by *chelseagirl* and rescued from Google cache :)

This is a step by step tutorial of how I make my hair falls that I posted on DTBD, and I thought I'd share it with you guys too. These falls on clips work great on those of you who, like me, have thin hair or shorter hair, who find the usual falls which are mounted on lace or ties difficult, or impossible, to attach securly.

You will need:

wefted hair (a/k/a hair on a track or "weaving hair")
clips
a hot glue gun and glue

These are the clips that I use. They are made by Goody, and can be purchased at Walmart or Target. Goody makes 2 sizes of these clips, I use the smaller size. It is available in black, dark brown, and light brown:

Image

Edited to add that if you can't find them locally, you can order the clips here:
http://www.abvariety.com/sunshop/index. ... tail&p=490


I start off by gluing hair underneath the lip that you put your fingers on to pinch the clip open. Don't glue the hair to the bottom side of this lip, but glue it on the actual face of the clip, underneath this lip. I put the accent hair (the colored hair that is accenting the base color) here:

Image

Then, I start adding hair on the sides of the clip, like this. In these instructions and pictures, I am leaving the center whole in the clip open, so that I can pull my real hair through and let it hang down with the fall hair. In the alternative (if you would rather just clip this down overtop your ponytail or bun, and NOT pull your own hair through to hang down with the fall hair), you could just stretch the weft over top the hole and glue it on either side, covering the hole:

Image

Repeat the last step on the other side:

Image

a side view so far:

Image

Now, I take a piece of weft, and attach it at the bottom of the clip on one side, and stretch it around the clip, OVER the top of that lip (the lip mentioned in the first step), and back down again to the bottom of the opposite side, so it looks like this:

Image

I then glue hair on the inside of the very top lip, taking care not to put too much hair too close to the hinge, becuase if you do, it will block the hinge and prevent the clip from opening all the way. But, fill that lip up with hair near the top (I also use mostly colored accent hair here also, with a little bit of the base color at the very top):

Image

Now, this part is tricky, and took some practice before I got it right. I now glue hair on the inside of the part of the clip that has the claw comb. You have to get this just right, or the hair won't fall correctly, and have a natural look to it:

Image

This is how the clip should look when completed. If you notice, I have put a small strip of glue down each of the teeth of the comb. This strengthens the teeth, so there's less chance of them breaking off (though, you should still never, under any circunstances, pick these falls up by the teeth. The weight of the hair on the clip could cause the teeth to break off in your hand. Always pick up the fall any other way, but not by the teeth):

Image

Image

wearing two clips:

Image

wearing one clip:

Image

As you can see, if done correctly so that the hair falls right, you don't need to add anything to cover up where the clip meets your own hair. It looks pretty natural even without hiding the joint with barrettes, etc.

This is kind of hard to see, but this is me lifting the fall hair up. The blonde and black hair hanging down is my real hair which has been pulled through that hole in the clip. It's super comfortable wearing your hair pulled through like this:

Image

These black/green/blonde clips were made using 8" and 10" human hair weft. I also usually make some clip in streaks with the accent colors of the falls, to clip in the front of my hair that isn't pulled back. It really ties the falls in with the rest of your hair, and makes it look more realistic.

Anyways, hopefully this may help anyone wanting to make loose hair falls that clip on rather than tie on. It takes some practice to get the hang of exactly how to place the hair, the angles, etc., so for your first few tries, I would recommend using cheap weft hair, until you are comfortable with exactly how to glue the hair on.

I see the clips in WalMart sometimes, and every time I see them, I think of these falls. I should make myself a pair already.

Really, Walmart has them? I'll have to check the one near me. It'd be awesome to have a nice stockpile of them!

I found those clips at hot dollar (a variety store).

I should go back and buy some.

Alot of the pictures can't be viewed anymore.
Anyone mind sending me a picture of the clips in my inbox? I have an idea of what they look like, but I'm honestly not sure if they're the same. =[

Thanks! :i9:

You'll need to track down Chelseagirl for the pictures since they were in her Photobucket account (she's the one who made the tutorial)

Yup, that's what they looked like. I just picked one up from Target and will be making a ponytail some time in the future. [There's a HH wig waiting for me at the moment. ;) ]

I could take some photos of the process if wanted?

Hey guys! Sorry, I know I pretty much dropped off the face of the planet for a while, but I'm back now. :) I'm posting the pictures here in order of where they belong in the tutorial, maybe ikickshins can edit and put them in there sometime. However, I have not been able to find these clips in AGES unfortunately. :(

I LOVE these falls! i just found some of these clips today. To the aussie people on here you can get them in woolworths and at paddys markets in sydney at the stall where all the flower hair accessories are. To anyone who has made these, how many feet of weft would you estimate is in one of these clips?
