Hair Extension Length Tips
It's vital to choose a length which you will be happy with and works with your style and lifestyle. For example, if you often like to wear your hair curly or braided you might be best to purchase a longer length like 20 inch hair extensions. We recommend customers decide where they'd like to see they're hair falling to and then purchase hair 2” longer than that.
If you love pin straight locks and this is your preferred style, you might want to go for a slightly shorter length. What many customers don't realise, especially those who have had short hair for a long time is that very long hair can be harder to maintain if you are new to hair extensions.
Longer locks can feel quite heavy for the first couple of days, especially if you're used to short hair but don't worry, it doesn't take your scalp long to adapt and get used to them!
20 Inch extensions, which measures close to 51 cm will fall near the waistline for most people but the final result depends on the height and proportions of the wearer. Choosing the maximum length can be a smart choice if you're unsure as you have the flexibility to have the extensions trimmed if you decide later that they're too long.
Long extensions need extra love. We recommend you brush your hair at least twice a day otherwise they will get knotted and tangled. But DON'T use any old brush.
