1. How long should the hair be for extensions?
You have short hair and want to know from what length extensions are possible? Generally, the longer your natural hair, the better the result of the hair extension. For bondings or tape extensions to be invisibly attached to your natural hair, your hair should have a minimum length of 8 - 10 cm. It is also important to consider a minimum distance of 1 cm between the extension bonds and the scalp when determining the hair length suitable for extensions. If the hair strands are placed too close to the scalp, the weight of the extensions can strain the hair roots and potentially lead to hair loss. Therefore, it is important to always consider the correct distance to the scalp when determining the recommended hair length for extensions.
4. What methods are available for hair extensions with short hair?
Regardless of the hair length at which you want to extend your short hair with extensions, the following extension methods are recommended for hair extensions with a short hairstyle:
Tape extensions are a good choice for short hair, regardless of the hair length. The bonding points in tape-ins are particularly flat, making them easy to integrate invisibly into short hair. Hairstyles like the chin-length bob can be easily extended with tape-ins. Tip: 10 cm is a good length from which tape extensions can be applied.
Bondings are especially suitable for thick hair. The hair length from which these extensions can be invisibly integrated into short natural hair depends on the hairstyle. In a layered short haircut or with curls, bondings are a good option for hair extensions.
The rule of thumb for determining from what hair length you can permanently extend short hair with extensions also applies to clip-ins. If you have 7 - 10 cm of natural hair length, you can transform your short hair into an attractive updo, for example, for special occasions using hair2heart clip-ins. Regardless of the hair length, the extensions are simply attached to the natural hair with a clip - and you're done.
