Choosing Your Hair Extensions Length

At Additional Lengths, we often get questions about the lengths of the hair extensions we offer. So, we are here to help by answering our most common questions when it comes to length…


“Do Hair Extensions At Additional Lengths Come In Different Lengths?”

We offer hair extensions from 10" to 30" across our 100% Remy human hair extensions so we cater to all of your needs. Whether you want a boost of volume to your shorter lengths, additional length to your shoulder length hair or even more length to your longer hair, we have options available to you across the different brands and types. Make sure you check our collections page of the website here where you can filter between lengths and extension types. 

Unsure what method to go for for your hair type? Whether you have thick hair or fine hair, there are options available for you across our collection of hair extensions. Take a look at one of our previous blog posts “Which Remi Cachet Hair Extensions Should I Buy?” for more information about the different types of extensions available to you.


“Which Length Of Hair Extensions Do I Need?”

It’s important to remember that not all hair extension lengths are suitable for every hair type as applying too much length and weight to your natural hair could potentially put too much pressure on it. Ultimately, this is why it's always essential that you consult with a hair extension stylist and book a consultation before committing to hair extensions. 

Therefore, our advice is to refrain from wearing hair extensions that are significantly longer than your own lengths. As our general rule, any extension you choose should be no longer than three to four inches of your natural hair. 

Although there are hair extensions that are suited to shorter hair, having a natural hair length of 4"-5” is also advisable in order to create a seamless blend. 


“How Do I Choose The Correct Length Of Hair Extensions For Me?”

We always recommend booking in a consultation with your stylist if you are unsure what hair extension length to go for so they can determine how much length your natural hair can sustain. 

If you are wanting to check the length of your natural hair to get a vision of what the different lengths available would look like in comparison, our tip is to take a tape measure and place it above about 2.5cm above the top of your ear to the ends of your hair. As an example, in line with our advice, if your hair length is 16”, we’d recommend that you choose hair extensions in either 18” or 20”. 

If you want to apply a longer length than our recommended measurements, always speak to a stylist or book a consultation so they can determine whether your natural hair would be able to manage the extra length.
