How long should my hair be for hair extensions?

So you have your hair short, and you want to use hair extensions to either lengthen it back, or have more room for styling.

Any short hair will do, isn't it?


Although we want to attach hair extensions to all short haired gals who want hair extensions, that can't always be the case.

There are different types of hair extensions available in the market: clip on hair extensions, stick hair extensions, micro ring hair extensions, tape extensions, and more. A few things are common, and one of them is the length of your hair they require to have hair extensions attached.

The usual hair length required to attach hair extensions is at least below the ear or chin length hair.

You might wonder why there's a length requirement. It's because the hair extensions attachment part might show up when the hair is too short. And we know that we all want in hair extensions: to make it appear as seamless and natural as possible.

One Lynelle Pro-Tip we could share with you is to have your hair layered. A straight cut makes the hair appear thicker and chunkier, which makes it more difficult for hair extensions to seamlessly blend.

We are not telling that a straight cut hair can't wear hair extensions, but you might need more pieces of hair extensions on that account.

And when your hair is in a layered style, we still have to follow the hair requirement rule. That means the shortest strand of the layered hair you have must be at least below the ear or chin length.
