Hair extensions for short hair are the perfect way of adding
the length and volume you’ve always wanted. We love to see how shorter styles
can be transformed with Headkandy hair extensions either with extra oomph and
body or with gorgeous (but discreet) length.
Having short hair definitely doesn’t stop you being able to use
clip in extensions successfully … we would normally recommend that your hair be
at least jaw length with your shortest back layers being at least 4”, but it is
possible to wear hair extensions for short hair that isn’t quite this long.
Whether you want to add some extra length or just volume to your current
length, the 12-14” or 16-18” full heads are usually perfect for changing and
creating a natural look for short hair styles.
Many celeb’s have recently been going for the chop and have opted
for elfin crops and bobs. We love Emma Watson’s cropped hairdo and Alexa Chung’s
dip dyed bob is just fab! Following in their footsteps, Radio 1’s Fearne Cotton has also
changed her hair to a super short style!
Fearne Cotton’s hair has been getting progressively shorter and this week, for
the Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year Award show, she showed off a new platinum
blonde wavy bob. It looks fabulous!! Fearne Cotton’s hair always looks great
and she can really experiment and embrace different styles, but we think her
new look really suits her!!
Fearne Cotton’s hair style is perfect for those with similar
length or shorter hair. The addition of a 12-14” full head set will give you
added volume and will be perfect for adding curls or waves.
You can create
Fearne’s waves by using a large barrelled tong and backcombing the roots of
your own hair to give you the boost of volume she has.
This length hair looks
amazing and is a great way of changing a shorter style without making it
obvious that you’re wearing extensions.
If you did want to add a little more length than this then the 16-18” full head
set should still look natural and will give you gorgeously thick and full
Top tips for hair extensions for short hair:
-If your hair is shorter than jaw length and the layers on
the back of your head are less that 4” long then it’s still possible to wear
extensions. We would recommend trying a full head in your chosen length and if
they don’t work for you when you first receive them then don’t fret, just give
your clip in hair extensions another go in a few weeks when your hair is a
little longer! A few cleverly placed bobby pins can be great for blending your extensions in with your natural hair!
-Hair extensions for short hair that is less than jaw
length can still work really well if the layers on the top of your head are
longer. Long layers on top are perfecting for disguising your HeadKandy hair
-We recommend fitting your hair extensions into your short
hair first and then styling them in with your natural hair for a more flawless
-You can always have your stylist trim your extensions to
blend better with your style if necessary.
