Here at the Strategist, we like to think of ourselves as crazy (in the good way) about the stuff we buy (like pillows), but as much as we’d like to, we can’t try everything. Which is why we have People’s Choice, in which we find the best-reviewed (that’s four-to-five-star reviews and lots of ‘em) products and single out the most convincing ones. While we’ve written about the best curling ironshair dryers, and even the best wig hanger before, here we’re going deep on the best clip-in hair extensions on Amazon. (Note that reviews have been edited for length and clarity.)

Best clip-in synthetic hair extensions

REECHO 20” 3/4 Full Head Curly Wave Clips in, 4.6 Oz, 5 Clips, Dark brown

“OMG! If I could rate this higher I would! Buy it now, you won’t regret it. Especially for such an incredible price! I bought it for a costume for Halloween, but it’s nice enough quality to use for date nights or whatever! And I have used clip-in extensions for ten years, and never gone synthetic until now and I am amazed. Thanks for such a great product! I’m ordering another for back ups or to lend my sister right after I finish this review!”

REECHO Hair Extensions Clip in, 16”, 4 pcs

“THESE ARE AMAZING! The price can’t be beat. I normally order two sets of extensions because I have the thickest hair so I ordered a set of 20” and 24” to be safe. I only needed one set of these, they are super thick wefts of hair and feel great. They do get tangled because that is always expected with long extensions but they are easily brushed out with the comb that came with the extensions. I will definitely order again if needed, I couldn’t believe how nice these were for the price I paid.”

Best clip-in human hair extensions

Winsky 14” Clip in Hair Extensions, 50 grams, 4 pieces, Dark Brown

“These are so nice and realistic. The tracks can feel a little thick at the clip but I suppose that’s normal. I have short, shoulder-length hair and wanted length and volume. Originally I ordered two 20” packs, and ended up also ordering one 18” pack to layer and make sure the thickness looked realistic. They stayed in really well and blended almost flawlessly with my natural color. People didn’t know it wasn’t my real hair. I 100 percent recommend these!!!”

VARIO Clip In Hair Extensions Double Weft Brazilian Hair, 18”, 120g, 7pcs

“I have worn hair extensions for over ten years and I usually don’t write reviews … but these are hands down the best I have bought! They are thick, I have dyed them twice and turned out perfect with out losing hair and still beyond soft. Will absolutely buy these again.”

Googoo 24” Clip in Hair extensions, Ombre Honey Blonde, 120g, 7pcs

“Love it!!! The hair was more then what I expected to get. Awesome price. I’m a hairdresser for weddings and bought these for a client of mine for her wedding and will be forever purchasing these for my brides from this store.”

Lovbite Hair Clip In Human Hair Extensions Double Weft Natural Black, 24”, 120g, 8 Pieces

“Great quality, great price! Perfect thickness. I absolutely love them! You’ll spend $140 at Sally’s Beauty Supply for extensions that aren’t even as thick as these. Totally worth it. I wear them every day. I can curl them, get them wet, etc. I’ll definitely order them again when it’s time!”

Best blonde clip-in hair extensions

MY-LADY 100% Remy Human Hair Clip in Extensions 12”, 110g, 8pcs

“I ordered the 22” dark brown set & I just ordered another set. I am very experienced when it comes to hair & hair extensions especially. I have years of experience. These extensions are AMAZING. They are comfortable & look so natural. The quality of the hair is definitely human hair. I recommend these 100 percent. I’ve already received so many compliments & everyone was shocked when they found out I didn’t pay more than $100 for them like I usually do. I told my family & friends & they loved mine so much that they’ll be ordering a set of their own too!”

MY-LADY Clip in 100% Remy Human Hair Extensions, Platinum Blonde 18”, 100g, 8pcs

“I have always struggled with fine, thin hair. It has only gotten worse since having babies. I have tried everything to try to grow thicker hair. Nothing worked! So I decided to try extensions. These work very well for what I need. They clip in & stay on me hair easily all day. I would definitely recommend these to anyone!”

Best jet-black clip-in hair extensions

BHF HAIR Clip in Hair Extensions, Jet Black, 16”, 70grams, 6pieces

“I’ve never tried hair extensions before and I knew I just wanted to add some length and volume. This set of hair extensions is super soft and high quality! It’s not too long but perfect for blending in with my damaged split ends. I don’t have any issues of it being too thin either. I would recommend it! :)”

Best remy clip-in hair extensions

Inmany Remy Clip in Hair Extensions, Natural Black, 18”, 100g, 8pcs

“I really liked these extensions! They match my hair color and hold a curl nicely. I have never ordered/worn clip ins before, but these gave me the look I desired. I ordered 14 inches in No. 2. I cut off about an inch to make it my hair length (I just wanted a fuller look). If your goal is to add more length, I would recommend buying two packs so the ends look thick enough. When I first received the hair, I washed them and the water was very brown. Given the price, I would expect the color to run so I didn’t mind it at all and the shedding was very minimal. So far I am very happy and I plan on only wearing them for more special occasions.”

ABH AmazingBeauty 8A Remy Brazilian Clip in Hair Extensions, 3C and 4A, 16”, 120 gram

“Amazing hair! Great for if you want to add volume to your curly hair! It blended perfectly. I would suggest cowashing and running through with a denman. That takes out the overly manufactured look of the curls and they look really really natural.”

Full Shine Remy Clip in Hair Extensions Ombre Balyage Color, 14”, 100g 10 Pcs

“I am really happy with my buy. You get what you pay for. I have used extensions for a long time and by far these are my favorite! Very happy with them the color is on point. Love. Love . Love. The ombré looks great!”

Amygirl Remy Clip in Hair Extensions Human Hair, Light Brown, 16”, 80grams, 5 Pieces

“This is the first time I’ve bought extensions online and I can honestly say I love them. I have hypothyroidism and my hair is falling out all the time. Adding these five extensions with the color I already have made my hair look darker and fuller.”
