How to decide which Length to buy

The Khairmax Hair Extension Length Guide can be used to get an approximate idea of length when ordering our hair extensions.

Please note that while the length is consistent, it will appear to be longer or shorter depending on the height of the model in the chart and the varying length of the neck and torso. The same extensions on a taller person will look different than the same length on a petite figure.

Also the technique and the starting point used to thread your extensions can cause the length to vary. So where extensions may be advertised as being 16 inches long, they may appear longer than this when they are attached to the middle of the back of the head.

How to decide which combination of lengths to buy

Deciding on the hair style and where you’d like your extensions to fall and where your finished result should be will give you a good idea of what length hair to purchase. To get a general understanding of how long hair extensions will look, a tape measure may be of help.

If you want a very full look of similar lengths you should get most of your hair the same length. To get a layered look all the lengths can be different but should remain in ascending order, for example 14”, 16” and 18”.

Please keep in mind, the longer the Extension length, the more hair you will need for a full look. If you are buying longer than 22” we generally advise a fourth bundle of hair may be required.

This is an approximate guide, and it is better to have more hair then not enough. The left over hair can always be used next time. 

If you are unsure about what length to order, please contact us and we will be happy to advise you. It is always a good idea to order the hair a little longer if you are not sure, as it can be trimmed or stylized shorter.
