How to Choose Length
Hair extensions are an ideal option for anyone who wants to lengthen their hair, whether due to a haircut gone awry or just to try something new. No matter what your reason for getting extensions is, it's important to choose the right length. Here are some things to consider when deciding on hair extension lengths.
Wavy/ Curly vs. Straight Hair Extensions
Before you decide on a length, be sure to consider whether you want wavy/curly or straight hair extensions. Wavy/curly extensions tend to look slightly shorter than straight extensions due to the texture of the hair. If you are planning to opt for Wavy/curly extensions, you may want to go one size longer than you would if you're planning to buy straight extensions. Also, keep in mind that wavy/curly extensions tend to feel heavier than straight extensions when you wear them.
Comfort is another factor to consider when trying to decide on a length that is right for your hair extensions. If you are used to having short hair, it may be difficult for you to adjust to a really long length. Hair extensions that are no longer than 18" are generally suitable for those with short hair. On the other hand, you may feel comfortable wearing longer extensions if you have medium to long hair.
Tips to Getting the Right Size:
What a lot of people don't do is measure their hair to know exactly what size hair extensions they should buy. This is a huge problem once you buy the extensions. What you don't want to do is measure your hair from the wrong spot, you need to measure from the very center of the back of your head since that is where the hair extensions will sit.
2.Calculate the Length You Want.
If you want your hair to be 5 inches longer than where it is now, you need to calculate for that length. What most people do is buy the hair extensions just an inch or so longer than their hair already and the problem with this is when your hair finally does grow your extensions will then be useless. Just remember that if you want to use your hair extensions for a long time then you need to get a size that will work for many years to come as opposed to just a few months of regular use.
This hair extension length guide can be used to get an approximate length when ordering your hair extensions. Lengths can vary depending on the individual's torso and neck lengths.
