DIY Clip-In Hair Extensions
You possibly can mess around and determine what works best for you and your hair type, but a typical set of clip-ins would include 4 wide back pieces and 4-6 small side pieces.
To custom-fit your extensions, measure your hair along the back, first just above the nape, then about an inch above, then from about 1/2 inch behind one ear to the opposite, and the last about an inch above that. Cut the hair from the weft in those lengths, and double or triple them – in case you are adding length, but not volume, you may want to simply double them, and vice versa.

I lay them down next to each other, sewed the first two together, after which the third to that. I used an invisible polyester thread and a medium zig-zag stitch, to keep them even.
When you’re done, it is best to have 4 wide back pieces, and 4-6 smaller strands of hair for the sides. I alternated between 2 weft and three weft thicknesses for variety, so I’ve 2 thicker back pieces and three thicker side pieces.
