Ways to Make Your Hair Extensions Look More Natural
With all the types of hair extensions, sometimes it’s hard to decide
what’s the best set for you, especially if you’re worried about the
extensions looking unnatural. It’s possible to make your hair any length
and any thickness you desire while maintaining a natural look. Whether
you have glued or clipped-on hair extensions, the ones that look natural
are the best.
Investing in a Set of Human Hair Extensions
When you’re looking for natural-looking hair extensions that look
natural, it’s all about investing in a quality set. Hair extensions made
of human hair — like virgin Brazilian hair
— look more natural than synthetic hair extensions, but they come with a
higher price tag. Unlike human hair extensions, synthetic hair
extensions easily tangle, don’t blend well and can’t be shampooed, dried
or styled with heat.
Matching Your Hair Color
The most give-away sign is when someone’s hair extensions do not
match their natural hair color. When selecting your hair extensions,
consider the tone as well as the color. For example, if you’re selecting
blonde extensions, ask yourself if you have ash-toned blonde or golden
blonde hair. Standing in natural light may help you see a truer
representation of your hair color. Human hair extensions can be dyed up
to two shades darker, so if you have the wrong color of hair extensions,
you’re not completely out of luck.
Choosing the Cut
Don’t get ahead of yourself and choose any length and cut of hair
extensions. If you’re using the hair extensions for length, choose hair
extensions up to 5 inches longer than your current length. Otherwise,
choose the hair extensions that are the same length as your hair.
Deciding on Your Natural Style
Extensions come styled in many ways, depending on their texture, like
curly, wavy and straight. Choosing the style of hair extensions is just
as important — if not more important — than selecting the color and
length. Matching the extensions to the texture of your hair is the best
way to do it, because they will not look out of place or unnatural if
they do not match. For example, if your hair texture is normally kinky
and curly, then choose extensions that match that texture.
Taking the Time to Find the Right Set
The key to getting your hair extensions more natural-looking is
spending time looking for the right set. The more time you take
searching and matching the extensions to your natural hair, the better
the chances are they’ll look natural when you wear them.
