Lengthening your hair with hair extensions is easy to do. In fact, it typically takes only a few minutes! However, blending them naturally, especially with short hair, is more difficult than most people think. Without taking the proper steps you could end up with a style that makes it very obvious you’re using extensions. There’s nothing more embarrassing than badly placed extensions, so here are a few tips for proper blending.
Picking the Right Color
This is probably the most obvious tip, but it’s easier said than done. Luckily, there is more than one way to pick a good color for your hair extensions. The first is to match the extensions to your natural hair color. However, since matching the color exactly isn’t always the easiest option, some people choose to pick a color they like and dye their natural hair to match. Not only will you have longer hair, but you’ll also have a perfectly blended change to feel confident with!
Consider the Weight
Another key to blending hair extensions is to match their weight as closely as possible to your natural hair. No matter if your hair is thick or thin, finding extensions to match its weight will help create a natural transition. Otherwise, you may have to use numerous hair products for Remy hair to try to make the extensions look more natural.
Styling the Extensions Properly
Once you’ve picked the perfect hair extensions with respect to color and weight, you can style them to your liking. Just be sure to learn how to care for hair extensions before you do any extravagant styling, so you reduce the risk of damaging them. While hair extensions look amazing straightened, wavy or curly styles blend better with short hair. These styles will also hide any flaws.
Just picking any type of hair extensions and trying to make them work will most likely result in unnatural looking hair. When you properly blend your extensions with your short hair, you’ll have a hairstyle most people won’t even realize includes extensions.
