How to choose the right hair extension length?

To achieve a seamless and entirely natural look, selecting the appropriate length for your extensions is crucial. Below, we'll provide you with essential points to consider that will assist you in making the optimal choice.

What is the length of your hair?

First and foremost, we advise against opting for hair extensions significantly longer than your own hair for the best blending outcome. If your hair reaches shoulder length or beyond, selecting a longer extension is suitable. However, if your hair is shorter than shoulder length, we recommend sticking to extensions no longer than 20 inches. Additionally, your natural hair should be a minimum of 4-6 inches in length to conceal the extension roots effectively. Hence, if you have short hair or recently got a haircut, it's advisable to wait for some time to let it grow before choosing extensions.


How to measure?

Gather a mirror and a tape measure. Follow these steps:
  • Place the tape measure at the top of your ears.
  • Allow the tape measure to hang down naturally.
  • Observe your hair in the mirror – it will align with the tape measure's length.
  • Remember this measurement, as it represents your hair's natural length.

This straightforward technique makes measuring easy – give it a try!

Think about your height:

Here's an additional pointer to help you determine the ideal hair extension length – consider your height. Your height will notably impact your overall look once the extensions are in place.

Naturally, the taller you are, the shorter the extensions may appear, and conversely. If you're on the taller side, opting for a longer length is a good choice. Meanwhile, if you're petite, extensions ranging from 14 to 18 inches or shorter might suit you perfectly. Therefore, making a decision about the hair extension length that best suits you should factor in your height.

Important: When measuring the length of curly hair, it is gauged when the hair is straightened. For instance, if you order 18 inches of curly hair, we utilize 18 inches of straight hair to craft the curls.
