I always recommend clients to go no more than 4 inches longer than their natural hair. The best way to see where you want it to lay is to start measuring it from the middle of the back of your head. This is where your extensions will begin.
Most hair extensions are available in these lengths:8”, 10”, 12”, 14”, 16”, 18” and 22”. There are 24” and 26” too, but they are hard to find.
Glue-Ins (1-2 months)
Micro links/ I-Tips (3+months)
Keratin glue (4+months)
This is just an approximation on how long you may be able to wear the hair extensions. Different application methods require touch ups/follow ups and specific care. The way you care for them can make a big difference on how long they will last. Also, some medium and long term methods can be used for shorter or longer periods of time with proper care.
Find the right hair texture for a seamless and natural look. There are a few different textures in hair extensions:
Fine/Silky – Smooth, sleek and shiny feel mostly found in 100% REMI hair.
Curly/Wavy – Curls can vary in tight curls, medium curls, and loose wave
Yaki – Coarse, thicker hair.
Let's be honest, it can be very rare to find an exact match. But even so, you can always find something really close to your hair color.Most hair extensions are available in natural colors (1, 1b, 2, 4, 6...), blondes (27, 22, 24, 613, Pb…) ,reds (30, 33, 99G, BG…) and blends. Fantasy colors are mostly available in Synthetic Fibers but you can also find some brands that have them in human hair. For more information about color you can always read our Hair Color Guide:
