How do I select the right hair extension length?
Below you will find a general diagram of how long a 10"- 32" will be one an average height woman (5'5). All hair is measured by it's length when pulled straight. Therefore, Body Wave, Loose Wave, Loose Curly, Curly, or Kinky Curly will appear 1-4 inches shorter in it's natural curl.
How much hair do I need for a full head of hair?
-We recommend purchasing at least 2 bundles of hair (for lengths 12”-16”).
-If you are installing hair longer than 16” inches or closing in the weave completely without any natural hair being left out, we suggest purchasing 3 or more. Example: 16", 18" & 20".
-If you are installing hair that is 22" or longer, we recommend four bundles of hair, for example 22",24", and 2- 26".
What's the best way to buy hair extensions online?
There are so many choices when deciding what hair extensions to buy, that it can be overwhelming when making a decision on the best product for you. To keep things simple and to help you make the right decision, consider the following:
- Hair Quality – This is one of the most important considerations when purchasing human hair extensions. Hair quality varies greatly, with the best lasting 12 months or more and poor quality lasting as little as a few weeks. Firstly, make sure that you are buying virgin Remy Human Hair. Which simply means that all the hair has been arranged so that all the cuticles are facing the same direction. By using this product, the hair is much less likely to tangle than non-remy hair.
- Use – You have to decide what you are getting the extensions for and if it will suit your lifestyle. If you want extensions for a school formal, wedding, vacation, or simply want to enhance the length and volume of your hair on day to day basis, then Crowned Hair is the best option for you.
