If there are times where you just want to do something with your hair that isn’t possible, then the most logical solution is to experiment with hair extensions. Hair extensions can make your hair look either new and refreshing, or just downright bad. It’s important that you know how to use them properly before going out and showing off your hair. Use this guide to help you make sure that you look great before you step out of the door.


You need to make sure that the density of the hair extensions matches the density of your own hair. You can usually tell this just by feeling the extension and your own hair in your hands. For example, if you have fine hair, then adding too thick of an extension will make it look unnatural.

Strand Guidelines

As a general rule, you should add 3-5 rows on the side of the head, 2-5 rows at the nape and 2-5 rows at the perimeter to help the hair add volume. This will make the hair look very natural.

Consult a Professional

If you have no experience with hair extensions, you should definitely talk with a professional to determine what will look best on you. A professional will help guide you through the process, and they will also give you tips about how to take care of your extensions once they are finished. Hair extensions are expensive, so you need to make sure that they are done right.

If you are thinking about getting hair extensions you need to do the proper research before jumping right in. It is risky to get them done by someone who is not a professional, so that friend that says they can do it for you should have to prove themselves before you allow them to do work on your own hair. Research what type of look you would like, which length and also match the hair color to get the most flawless look.
