Growing your hair out, especially from short hair, can take years. With hair extensions, you can have the long hair you want without the wait. For women suffering from hair loss, hair extensions can be a beacon of light. Not only can hair extensions lengthen your hair, but they also can be used to fill in balding areas and give your hair a more natural, thicker appearance.
Hair extensions are done using different methods like Braid Weaves, Mega Tips or Micro Linking / bounding. Some used as serious extensions for long keeping and some for fun and a night out! Regardless of the method or intention, always make sure your extensions are done by a professional. Although when done correctly, hair extensions are safe and won't damage your hair or scalp, if done incorrectly, both scalp and hair damage can occur.
For Short Hair
Here are few advices by King of Hair Extension Jesse Briggs for doing Extension on shorter hair:
You can have Extension on short hair if you hair on sides are 2" long when straight. You may bond hair in 1/4" strands of hair to look natural. For example: Great Lengths has 25 strains per bundle and those can be cut and bonded to hair on sides in 1/4" strands, so that's 100 small strands to look natural per bundle.
Most heads take 5 to 7 bundles to really look natural and you may have short bob or shoulder length or mid back to waist, but if you have a very short hair then your best choice would be just above shoulder until hair grows longer.
Choose a top experience extension expert for a one-to-one consultation to be sure you feel comfortable for the investment of your new look.
The extension should last for at-least 5 months when installed correctly by an extension-stylist.
Extensions require care and maintenance and you must follow all steps and guidelines provided by your extension-stylist. Otherwise bonds become weak and hair will slip and start to shed prematurely.
You can blend colors to create a unique and natural look - For example you can blend two colors of dark brown and black "called multi blending" to make the final look natural.
