How To Choose The Appropriate Length Of Hair Extensions

Choosing the right hair extensions length is essential if you want it to look natural and blend in with your natural hair. It can be tricky to choose the right length of your extension, especially if you have never worn 100% human hair extensions.

Before buying hair extensions, always ensure that you measure them to make sure you don’t end up with very long or short extensions.


When choosing the length of the hair extension, how you plan to design your hair after wearing the extension will also play an important role. If the hairstyle you choose requires you to trim some hair,long hair will be better.

If you will wear long weaves, but you don't want to spend much time styling, then it would be ideal if you choose extensions that are 16 inches long.

2.Consider Your Natural Hair

If your hair is at or above the shoulders, then it would be best if you choose to use the 16-inch type to get a more natural look. If the length of your natural hair is about 3 inches below your shoulders, then you should choose a hair extension length similar to your natural hair.

3.Your Face Shape

Choosing the extension length according to your face shape is also a key trick.If your face is heart-shaped, then you should go for extensions that are 12-16 inches and have soft layers on the front. People with a round face should choose 100% human hair extensions that are curly and reach below their chin.

4.Your Height

After wearing the extension, your height will play an important role in your overall appearance.

For instance, one woman is 5.8 feet tall and another woman is 4.8 feet tall. They all buy 16 inch extensions. Compared with the hair of tall women, the latter's hair looks too long

5.The Cost

The length of hair extension automatically affects its cost. The price varies with the length of hair. Your budget determines the length of extension you get.

For instance, a 16 inch expansion cost is higher than a 14 inch expansion. It's best to buy a 16 inch extension because you can easily trim it to the desired length.  However, if you end up buying a shorter hair extension, you will have to spend more money on another hair extension.
