Hair Extensions are made to help us get thicker and longer hair. Also, it helps us add that extra hair volume that we all dream of having. However, what if your natural hair is way too short than your hair extensions? Should you just trim it to match your hair? Or should you just go buy another set with a closer length to your hair?
If you ask us, no. None of those options above should be considered. Why? Because you can simply blend it with these simple steps. And we guarantee you that no one can even tell you are wearing hair extensions on. Check out these tips on How To Perfectly Blend Hair Extensions with Short Hair.
#1 MAKE SURE THAT YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE THICK ENOUGH TO COVER YOUR HEAD
Why is it important? Well, if your hair is way too short that your hair extensions, it is always best to have a thicker set so you have enough coverage. The more hair there is, the more hair to blend, the better you’ll be able to conceal the ends of your short hair. If you are eyeing on clip-in hair extensions, we recommend getting a 10 piece set as this will definitely give you full coverage. Of course, you also have to consider your natural hair cut. If you’ve got straight and unlevel hair, then just go grab a 10 piece set of clip-ins. However, if you have a layered hair, we recommend getting one 5-Piece Set of hair extensions that are closest to your natural hair’ length and another set that is a little longer than your real hair.
#2 STYLE YOUR HAIR AND HAIR EXTENSIONS
The easiest way to blend your hair and hair extensions is to style them together. Yes! You read it, right babe. Always put on your hair extensions first and style your hair altogether. This way, you will be able to section your hair and hair extensions properly. Start from the bottom, then work your way up. Each time you section off hair, always clip the rest of the hair away from the section that you are about to curl.
#3 PRACTICE LAYERING YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS WITH YOUR NATURAL HAIR
First rule in layering your hair with your hair extensions is to make sure you are distributing the clip-ins evenly. Oftentimes, we see video tutorials where ladies put their extensions too low on the bottom, just focusing on the back, and not having enough clip-ins around the sides. Also, do not forget to tease near the sections or parting of the hair and add the clip-ins at the top. This will help hide the straight cut of your real hair. If you really are not into doing things yourself and want things done faster, you may go to your hairdresser and have it layered. It’s also recommended to use two sets of hair extensions with different lengths, mix them up together to achieve that layered look.
#4 TIDY UP WITH HAIR SERUM OR ARGAN OIL
When you are done putting your favourite hair extensions Sydney brand on, it’s time to keep everything tidy and smooth-looking. Adding serum or argan oil to your hair and hair extensions will not only make your hair shiny and smooth but doing this can help conceal the short hair’s ends from sticking out. Always remember to avoid adding products near the roots as this can cause your hair to become greasy.
