How to choose the correct length for your hair extensions?

Choosing the right length for your hair extensions largely depends on your personal preferences, lifestyle, and the look you're aiming for.


Here are some factors to consider when deciding on the length of your extensions:


Current Hair Length: If you're seeking a natural look, choose extensions that aren't dramatically longer than your current hair length. A difference of 4-6 inches is usually manageable. If your hair is very short, however, you may want to consult with a professional to ensure that the extensions can be blended seamlessly with your natural hair.


Desired Look: Think about the style you're going for. If you're seeking long, glamorous waves, you might choose longer extensions. If you just want a bit of added fullness or a subtle increase in length, shorter extensions may be sufficient.

Matching hair extensions to your client's hair color is an important part of the hair extension process.


Here are some steps you can follow to achieve a seamless color match:


1- Start by examining your client's hair color closely. Look at the undertones, highlights, and lowlights to get a clear idea of the shades that are present in their hair.

Hand Tied VS. Machine Tied Weft Extensions: What's the difference?

Hand tied and machine tied weft extensions are the two most popular types of wefts used for the sew-in/braidless weave method. Here is the real difference between these two types of wefts.

Hand tied wefts are produced by manually tying hair to the extension seam and knotting it in place by hand by an experienced technician. Machine tied wefts on the other hand are produced by using an industrial sewing machine to attach the hair to the weft.

Hand tied wefts usually have a much thinner weft in comparison to machine wefts.

One of the main differences between the two wefts is that machine wefts can be cut whereas hand tied wefts cannot be cut without unraveling.

Because hand tied extensions cannot be cut, each weft is usually between 5” to 13”. However, if you work directly with a hair extension manufacturer, you can customize the width of each hand tied weft based on your preference. Machine wefts are usually one single long weft that can be cut.
