Everyone wants to achieve that natural hair extension look. Hair extensions should flow with your natural hair seamlessly if doing a partial sew in and blend so well that others are not able to tell that you are actually wearing extensions. Or you can get bundles and a closure or frontal to match flawlessly. When purchasing hair extensions there are three things you should keep in mind:

  • Texture of the hair

  • Length of the hair

  • Color of the hair

 Texture Of The Hair

Consider the texture of your hair, is your hair straight, wavy or curly? Choose your hair extensions according to the texture of your hair, avoid wearing curly extensions if you have straight or wavy hair as it will not look attractive and may even be difficult for you to manage. If you choose a hair texture that does not match your natural hair, then your hair extensions will not look as natural or blend with your hair. Needless to say, you will have to buy hair extensions according to the texture of your hair.

Length of the hair

No matter what your reason for getting extensions is, it's important to choose the right length. Here are some things to consider when deciding on hair extension lengths. Before you decide on a length, be sure to consider whether you want wavy/curly or straight hair extensions. Wavy/curly extensions tend to look slightly shorter than straight extensions due to the texture of the hair. If you are planning to opt for Wavy/curly extensions, you may want to go one size longer than you would if you're planning to buy straight extensions. Also, keep in mind that wavy/curly extensions tend to feel heavier than straight extensions when you wear them. Comfort is another factor to consider when trying to decide on a length that is right for your hair extensions.


Color of the hair

One of the problems that most women have with extensions are the fact that they do not perfectly blend into their natural hair because the color is just slightly off. A perfect color match means your hair extensions will blend seamlessly with your hair and look very natural. When purchasing ombre extensions simply match the base color of the extensions to your own hair color and then choose the ombre color you want. If you have short or medium length hair, you will be able to wear ombre hair extensions without already having your own hair ombre. (No chemicals required, no money spent on color at the salon).
