Hair Extensions for Short Hair

Growing your hair out, especially from short hair, can take years. With hair extensions, you can have the long hair you want without the wait. For women suffering from hair loss, hair extensions can be a beacon of light. Not only can hair extensions lengthen your hair, but they also can be used to fill in balding areas and give your hair a more natural, thicker appearance.

Hair extensions are done using different methods like Braid Weaves, Mega Tips or Micro Linking / bounding. Some used as serious extensions to keep in the long-term and some are simply used for fun and a night out! Regardless of the method or intention, always make sure your extensions are done by a professional. Although when done correctly, hair extensions are safe and won't damage your hair or scalp;, if done incorrectly, both scalp and hair damage can occur.

If your natural hair is long enough to make a small low ponytail or bun, then you can choose this option (mostly suitable for medium length styles). Make sure you choose a human hair extension so you can blow-dry and use straightener for slick look.
