    Ive got clip in hair extensions and they used to look really good and real and then i had my hair cut and got some short layers and how they look really fake becuase of my short layers.
    Just wondering if anyone has any tips to make hair extensions look a bit more real?

    hmm im not sure i personally find clip in ones always are quite noticable. if u wear exactly the right amount - some peopel wear too little and its just like rats tails hanging out of the bottom whereas some peopel wear way too many and it looks like theyre wearing a wig. try and cut them so the difference isnt so great between then length of the extensions and the length of your actual hair. sorry im not much help although i sure they look fine

    how long are your extensions compared to your real hair? If theres a big difference maybe cut them slightly? I took mine to my hairdresser and she did them for me.
    Also when i had clip in extensions i found that if all my hair was sleek looking they blended in better, so maybe invest in some hair serum.
    It's hard to reccomend what to do without being able to see you, but my best advice is ask your hairdresser as she will be able to advise you alot better than i can! I miss my hair extensions

    My extensions arent very long, probs about 14-15 inches because i cut loads off them.
    I paid £100 for them becuase i bought 2 packets but its just now i have short layers so i have my layers then it just goes straight down.
    Ive tried loads of differnet styles but cant seem to find any that work.

    Trim them. DON'T chop them.

    It really is best to use human hair extensions that are the exact colour, I know it sounds kinda scary and they are quite expensive but they really look a lot more realistic and don't get bushy. You can curl and straighten human hair extensions too! And they don't shrivel up into 'rat tails' like most synthetic extensions do.

    waves to your hair will make he difference in texture/straightness less obvious. i see so many girls with hair not quite as straight as the extensions, or clearly of a different texture and it looks terrible. the extensions you put at the top of your head, cut them shorter so they're in between layers and extension length.

    Oh. Right.
    Try cutting them again? I can't really help you much, sorry. I have no idea what they look like.
