Kristin Chenowith Reveals Her Clip on Bangs Secret
Clip on bangs are nothing new but when Kristin Chenowith showed up wearing them on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, looking like a million bucks and as cute as a bug . . . I just bet this could start a run on clip on bangs.
Clip on bangs make so much sense when you think of it. Buy clip on bangs and you won’t need to run into your hair stylist every two to three weeks for trims, you’ll save time and money and bypass the decision of whether to make the commitment to cutting in bangs or not.
What you should know
It’s not so easy to find good clip on bangs. Most hairdressing salons don’t carry them, even though professional beauty supply stores say that hair stylists scooped them up in the past for their own personal use and loved them! Maybe it was more trouble than it was worth for hair salons to stock them, who knows? A few things about clip on bangs;
- Clip on bangs are made both from real and synthetic hair.
- Synthetic bangs can be heated up to 350 degrees or wet set styled but no chemicals
- Real hair can be dyed or permed and will withstand higher heat
- Clip-in bangs can also be used for lift at the crown or a thinning area
- Matching your hair color is hard to do when buying online
- Synthetic hair may look too shiny to look authentic
Most companies that make hair extensions will not allow returns so if you are buying online be aware of their return policy. The biggest reason for dissatisfaction from buyers is that the hair color doesn’t match. Some of the bigger manufacturers like HairUWear, may have up to 4 shades of blonde to choose from so you can imagine what a toss-up a color decision can be. So take your time choosing a hair color if you buy extensions online.
Your best bet to get a good hair color match is to get them at a local beauty supply store. Ulta Stores are widespread and sell clip in bangs both online and in their stores. They do allow returns. Sally Beauty Supply also sells clip in bangs and here is what we found out about the products at both stores.
Judge for yourself . . . but I think the bangs make Kristin Chenoweth look adorable AND much younger! (See who else she ‘out’s’ as a clip-in bang-ster).
