If you’ve never worn hair extensions before, you might be skeptical about how they will look. Maybe you’ve even seen someone wearing them and it was painfully obvious that they had hair extensions. But you should know, with some guidance and assistance, you could have hair extensions that look and feel great.
The key is choosing the right hair extensions for your hair’s color, length and texture. If chosen and implemented correctly, you could be blending your very own beautiful hair extensions in short order. Here are some tips on how to find the right hair extensions for you.
Use Remy human hair
While there are a wide variety of different types of hair extensions available, Remy human hair is the gold standard. The benefits of selecting Remy human hair extensions are twofold: They last longer, and they look better.
Since they are made from real human hair, you can treat them like real human hair. This includes wearing it in the rain or while swimming and drying and straightening it like you would your own hair.
Match the extensions to your own hair type and density
Some people have thick, coarse hair, while others have thinner, finer hair. The number of extensions you’ll require will be largely dependent on the density of your own hair. Your goal is to make the hair look natural, and the best way to do that is to make sure you have enough hair extensions. Having too few can be a giveaway that you’re using hair extensions.
Don’t go overboard on length
While it’s true that you need to have enough hair extensions, having them too long can become an issue as well. The two potential issues are maintenance and appearance. The longer your hair extensions are, the more hair you’ll have to care for. And this relates to the point above as well: If your real hair is shoulder length, you likely don’t need 24-inch extensions. You’d be better served aiming for the 16-inch to 18-inch range.
Find the correct color
When shopping for extensions, you should be trying to match the color of your own hair to the extensions you’ll be buying. The trick to this is doing it during the daytime. Sunlight is more illuminating than artificial light and gives you a better color profile to work off of. If your hair is more than one color, you’ll need to look for blended-color hair extensions which often consist of two or three separate colors.
Go to a professional hairstylist
While you could conceivably choose your own hair extensions, apply them and care for them yourself, it’s recommended that you enlist the help of a professional. A hairstylist will likely have experience with hair extensions, and he or she will be able to help you get yours looking how you want them to.
