How to choose the right hair extension length?

If you want the extension to blend well with your hair and look completely natural,It's very important to choose the right length . We will tell you some points you must know below and they will help you make the best choice.

How long is your hair?

First of all, we do not recommend that you choose hair extensions that are too much longer than your own hair in order to get the best blending effect. If your hair is shoulder-length or longer, then you can choose a longer length, but hair that is shorter than the shoulder, we do not recommend choosing hair that is more than 20 inches. Also, your natural hair must be at least 4-6 inches long so that you can hide the roots of your hair extensions. Therefore, for anyone with short hair or who has just cut their hair, you need to wait for a period of time for it to grow naturally before choosing an extension!


How to measure?

You need to prepare a mirror and a tape measure. All you need to do is to lift the tape measure to the top of your ears and let the tape measure fall naturally. At this point, you can see that your hair in the mirror has reached the length of the tape measure. Remember it, this is the natural length of your hair. This is a very simple method, come on and practice it!

Think about your height

Another tip to consider when getting the right length of hair extensions is your height. How tall you are will play a significant role in your overall appearance after wearing the extensions.

Obviously, the higher you are, the shorter the hair extension will look, and vice versa. If you are tall, you can choose a longer size, and if you are petite, a size of 14-18 inches or shorter may be long enough for you. Therefore, you must decide what length of hair extension to buy based on your height.
