How To Blend Hair Extensions With Short Hair

Do you ever wonder how to naturally grow long hair overnight? We do tooÔÇŽ but until we find that magical answer, clip in hair extensions are still the easiest and best way to transform your hair from short to long in literally minutes.

    Blending clip in hair extensions with short hair and making them look natural in your hair can seem a little tricky, but by following the tips and tricks we will share with you, your extensions will look so natural,┬áno one will even be able to tell youÔÇÖre wearing them.┬á

    In this video, our beautiful friend Milana shows how to clip, trim and layer hair extensions. She also shares some really helpful tips on how to blend hair extensions with short hair in general. Milana toned and layered her 220g Ash Blonde Luxy Hair extensions:

    Why You Should Consider Cutting, Trimming and Layering Your Hair Extensions

    The most important element of blending hair extensions┬áreally well with short hair is - layers. You may feel like itÔÇÖs a┬áÔÇśwasteÔÇÖ to cut inches off your set, but believe us when we tell you every inch is worth it. If you add long extensions to your short hair without layering them, they might┬álook unnatural and obvious in your hair. Trimming and layering your set to your haircut will make a world of a difference, and nobody will be able to tell youÔÇÖre wearing hair extensions.┬á

    Keep in mind that hair extensions donÔÇÖt grow back, so if you donÔÇÖt feel comfortable cutting your own set or donÔÇÖt know how to layer hair, itÔÇÖs best to trim your clip in extensions by a professional.┬áWe recommend taking your set to a hairstylist┬áwho has previous experience in working with extensions and having them do it for you.┬áYou can also number the wefts after the cut to remember where each one needs to be clipped in for future uses.┬á


    How to Pick The Right Color of Hair Extensions

    As obvious as this one may seem - the shade of your extensions needs to match your hair color. Right now with the ombre and balayage trend going on, some ladies are taking advantage of it in order to grow our their roots (hey, whatever works!) and as a result, their hair has several different tones and shades. If this is the case with your hair, you can either:

    1. Get hair extensions which match the ends of your hair or choose an Ombre set
    2. Color your hair into one solid shade to match the hair extensions shade that you like, or
    3. Get hair extensions which match the lightest portion of your hair colour and have a professional hair colourist dye the rest darker to match your hair ideally like you can see in this video.

    If youÔÇÖre not sure what your ideal match would be, Luxy Hair offers a free color┬ámatching service. All you have to do is snap a quick photo of your hair in natural light and send it over to info@luxyhair.com - our customer service team will be more than happy┬áto help you!

    Why Thickness Of Hair Extensions Matters

    Another thing to keep in mind is the weight of the extensions you are going to get. If your hair is short and thick, you will most likely need a thick set of hair extensions in order for them to blend in more naturally, especially if you have a blunt haircut. That thickness of the set will ensure that the transition between the ends of your hair and the extensions is smooth and seamless. Having a set that isnÔÇÖt thick enough will make the extensions look very obvious in your short hair (and nobody wants that).
