Add Instant Length and Volume with Hair Extensions

Hair extensions are highly sought hair treatments and many individuals think they’re a recent invention. The first documented use of hair extensions dates back to 3400 BC in ancient Egypt. They were worn by men and women of high society.

Hair extensions are typically used for two reasons – to increase hair length or to create volume. They’re available in a wide range of lengths, thicknesses and made of natural hair or synthetic materials. In general, weft extensions are utilized for volume, while keratin-bonded extensions are used to provide length, though there are exceptions.

Weft Extensions

A professional stylist will be able to match the extensions to the exact texture of an individual’s natural hair. Extensions are equally beneficial for providing a certain amount of volume for those with damaged or delicate hair, since they’re placed near the scalp. As natural hair grows, the extensions will loosen and they’ll require a touch up every 4 to 6 weeks to move them closer to the scalp.


Considered the gold standard of extensions, these are crafted for a more permanent solution and have the ability to last for months. Typically utilized for coarse or thick hair, they lengthen locks while providing volume and fullness. They can also support 1 to 2 ft. worth of weight.

Height Differences

Extensions don’t look the same on everyone and height plays a major role in perception. For those that are shorter than average, approximately 5 ft. 4 inches, 12-to-16-inch extensions work best. Individuals of average height can typically get up to 20 to 24-inch extensions. Women that are taller than average can wear extensions of 24 to 30 inches with ease. Extensions can be added to any hair style.

Celebrity Style

From Kim Kardashian and Ariana Grande to Jennifer Lopez, a variety of celebrities use extensions. Adding hair extensions to an individual’s repertoire of beauty treatments will place them in the company of the rich and famous.
