Learn how to make hair extensions blend naturally with our easy to follow guide. Our simple guide shows you 5 hair styles that can be created with hair extensions and teaches you which are best suited to your haircut or hair type.
The biggest factor is your hair cut. When you buy a great quality set of hair extensions, like ZALA hair, it usually does help ensure the perfect blend as they are evenly thick from top to bottom and there are a nice amount of rows to place throughout your hair. If your hair cut is a very blunt, heavy cut then thinning out with thinning scissors may be needed.
The thinner the ends of your natural hair is, the smoother the hair extensions will blend where your hair finishes. If your hair is is all one length, some light layering may help to create some shape to your cut so the final cut of your hair looks like another layer, again helping for a smooth overall look. If you have very short layers- think about sticking to a shorter length set of extensions, this will prevent your hair from looking like the dreaded 80’s mullet!
What kind of extensions are best for short hair?
ZALA hair extensions of course! To ensure your clip in hair extensions are un-detectable, ensure that your hair is at least 4-6 inches long. We offer clip in sets which are double drawn and triple wefted hair extensions which allow the rows to be super thick even at the ends. As long as there is equal amount of hair at the bottom than the top, then this will allow for an overall natural appearance for both short and long hair. You may find with other brands- as there is not enough hair at the ends, it looks very obvious where the rows of extensions are, however with ZALA, there are up to 9 pieces placed evenly throughout your hair to continue the thickness.
How to make hair extensions blend with short hair
Make sure you have enough pieces to balance out your hair cut whether it is our 5 piece set or our 9 piece set, to ensure even distribution. Again, a very blunt cut will make it tricky to make a smooth blend with hair extensions. If your hair is short and thick, we would recommend the ZALA 9 piece set, this will ensure the thickness of your hair is continued.
