How To Create Clip-in Bangs At Home Using Your Cashmere Hair Tester Piece

Don’t know what to do with your tester piece? Try out some no-commitment bangs you can clip in without needing to cut your own hair!⁠ This easy hack is an incredible way to repurpose the tester piece in any Classic or Seamless extensions set and make some fun bangs to spice up your new do!

Cutting clip-in bangs using a tester piece from a set of clip-in extensions can be done in a few simple steps:

  1. First, select the tester piece from the set of clip-in extensions that you want to use for your bangs. Our Seamless Clip-in Extensions and our Classic Clip-in Extensions contain a tester piece that should be roughly the same length and thickness as the bangs you want to achieve.
  2. Next, clip the tester piece onto your hair where you want your bangs to start. Make sure the piece is secure and sits comfortably on your forehead.
  3. Use a comb to detangle and smooth your tester piece and section out a middle section where the hair will sit just above your eye line. The pieces section out onto either side will be used to blend into your natural hair as face framing pieces. the desired length and shape of your bangs. Be sure to cut only a small amount at a time, as it's easy to cut too much off and end up with bangs that are too short.
  4. Once you have cut the bangs to the desired length, use a pair of scissors to snip into the ends of the hair vertically to create a softer, more natural look. Cut the side piece in a diagonal motion away from your face to blend into your natural hair
  5. Remove the tester piece from your hair and clip in the newly cut bangs in their place. Adjust the position and length as needed.
  6. Style your bangs as desired, using a straightener or curling iron if desired. Pop on a headband to conceal the track and viola! You've got bangs!

Remember to always cut less than you think you need, as you can always go back and cut more if needed. It's also a good idea to practice cutting on the tester piece before attempting to cut your actual clip-in extensions.
