Our OGs! These extensions are like our firstborn child. We put our heart and soul into designing these extensions because we wanted to make them unlike any other extensions on the market and to be the solution that everyone has been looking for when it comes to feeling confident in their hair.

TRACKS: Although we do offer a set of Seamless extensions, don't be fooled because these Classic Clip-ins can blend just as seamlessly into your hair! They are made with a flexible, stitched band that mimics the hair color and have a minimal amount of clips for the most comfortable wear.

HAIR: Cashmere Hair Classic clip in hair extensions are made from 100% Indian Remy human hair to give the most natural finish with the best overall quality. These extensions do contain a lot of hair but are very thin at the top of the weft.

CLIPS: Cashmere Hair uses the best clips for hair extensions, and the way we attach them to the weft is a factor in the quality of our extensions. Sometimes underestimated, clips play an important role in the comfort, durability, and safety of clip-in hair extensions, as well as the ease of concealing the tracks. No matter the quality of the hair, the quality of the clips plays a role in the length of time you can wear your clip-ins, the comfort level, and how well they stay put. Cashmere Hair's metal clips are small, with a silicone-covered band to prevent slippage, and painted for maximum comfort & safety.

COLOR: We know how difficult it is to find extensions that match your natural hair color perfectly, which is why we specially colored our extensions to have a very wide selection of colors that are specially designed to match almost every natural shade.

WEIGHT: Although these extensions do contain a lot of hair, each set of extensions is very lightweight for maximum comfort.

Volumizer One Piece extension

This clip-in One Piece Volumizer is the easiest way to add volume and length to your hair without the struggle. It is similar to the halo design, but instead of an uncomfortable and unstable string that goes over your head, the One Piece can be clipped onto the back of your head. This design keeps your extension secure, discreet, and comfortable.

TRACKS/CLIPS: The new design consists of several wefts sewn into one lace piece, with 6 clips to create balance and a comfortable grip. One Piece comes complete with metal clips attached to the weft with silicone tubing for a secure grip when attached to your natural hair.

HAIR: The hair is +AAA Superior Grade human Remy hair that is full from top to bottom. Because of the design, it is the best clip-in extension for medium to long hair lengths. Longer hair is required to blend and avoid the hair extension "seam" where there is an obvious difference between your hair and the extensions. Your hair should be longer than your shoulders with regular or thin ends with layers. Blunt haircuts will not blend naturally with this hair extension option.

COLOR: This one-step wonder extension comes in our same multi-tonal shades for instant volume and length at a moment’s notice.

WEIGHT: Having the clips on the bottom really helps to distribute the weight of this piece evenly. It's a lot of 100% Remy Human hair on one track, which makes it super easy to clip in, but it also can be a little bit heavy for some of our thinner-haired ladies. Adding these extra clips really helps to distribute that weight a lot more evenly and take some of the pressure off of the top row of clips.

  • Length: 20" Inches
  • Width at top: Approx. 8" Inches
  • Weight: 110 Grams
