How to Choose the Right Clip In Hair Extension Length and Colour
Clip-in hair extensions are a type of hairpiece which use a clip to attach the extension to the natural hair. Ours are made from 100% Remy hair, which has been treated and styled to match your natural locks.
Our beautiful range is available in a variety of colours and lengths here at Platinum Lockz, and can be worn for a night out, for a special occasion, or daily use. This blog will help you determine how to choose the right extension for you, taking into account your personal style, the look you’re going for, and your individual skin tone.
Our Handy Hair Extension Length Guide
Depending on your hair type, there are a few factors to consider when deciding which extensions are right for you – such as your natural length and the desired volume you want to achieve. For example:
- If you have shorter hair and you’re looking for more volume, you may want to opt for longer clip-ins with more body, like our 22” or 24” varieties.
- However, if you have longer hair and you’re simply looking to add a bit of volume, then extensions that match your current length may be a better option. We have 26” extensions available.
- Fine: If you have finer hair, you may want to choose a longer length to add more volume.
- Thick: If you have thicker hair, then a shorter length like 18” may be more suitable to add body over length.
Ultimately, it is important to experiment with different lengths and colours to find what works best for you and your hair type. If you’re not sure which way to go, our team of stylists will be happy to give you some tips – get in touch with us today.
How to Choose the Right Extension Hair Colours
There are a few things to consider when choosing the right extension hair colours for you. We have a handy colour guide to help you choose which is right for you.
It’s also important to consider your skin tone in order to find a shade that complements your features:
- If you have a cool skin tone, you might want to choose hair extensions that are a neutral or blue-based colour such as Ash Platinum Blonde or Beach Babe.
- If you have a warmer skin tone, you might want to choose extensions that are a yellow or red-based colour such as our Chocolate Brunette or Berrylicious.
Luckily, Platinum Lockz delivers a range of cool, warm and dark tones to suit your face and natural tone.
How Your Face Shape Determines Hairstyles
The shape of your face is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a hairstyle. The wrong hairstyle can accentuate the wrong features, making you look out of balance. The right hairstyle, on the other hand, can do wonders for your look.
Each has its own characteristics, and the right hairstyle will flatter your particular face shape.
- Oval: If you have an oval face, you can pretty much pull off any hairstyle. Just make sure to keep the proportions in mind – if your face is on the longer side, go for a hairstyle that is longer in length. If your face is on the shorter side, a shorter hairstyle will be more flattering.
- Round: Round faces have full cheeks and a soft, rounded jawline. The best hairstyles for a round face are those that add length and angularity to the face. Think long, straight styles or styles with sweeping side bangs.
- Square: Characterised by a strong, angular jawline. The best hairstyles for a square face are those that soften the angles of the face. Think styles with wispy bangs or soft, face-framing layers.
- Heart: Embodied by a wide forehead and a narrow chin. The best hairstyles for a heart face shape are those that balance the width of the forehead. Think styles with side-swept bangs or voluminous styles that draw attention to the chin.
