Normally, the length of the extension is picked that is equal to or shorter a bit (1-2 inches) compared to real hair. Based on experience as a major supplier of hair extensions. We can say that the most popular hair extension length is 18-20-22 inches (45-50-55cm). Regardless of how tall you are, this length is ideal because the hair runs down from the shoulders to the waist. It looks natural, not too short as well as not too long, so no one will be able to tell that you’re wearing hair extensions.

For example, your hair is about shoulder length. So the best suitable length is 16 to 18 inches for wavy hair. If your texture is straight or curly, you can adjust the length, shorter with straight hair and longer with curly hair.

Another tip for you to get the right decision with the length of hair extensions is your height.

Your overall appearance after wearing the extensions depends on how tall you are. The taller you are, the shorter the hair extension will look. If you are tall, you can select a longer size, and if you are petite, a size of 16-18 inches or shorter may be suitable for you. As a result, you must decide what length of hair extension to buy based on your height.

All of the above will assist you to choose the right extension length.
