It is difficult to blend in hair extensions with your blunt haircut or a lob.
Hair Extensions for Short Hair
If you are purchasing clip-in hair extensions for your sort hair, you can get a thick set even if your hair is not that thick, which can make your hair extensions look natural and blend in seamlessly. Ensure that you have enough hair extensions to make the transition from your hair to the rest of the extensions unnoticeable for that to happen with short hair, or any blunt haircut.
Braid the bottom layer
While wearing hair extension, your own hair’s bottom layers that show underneath the extensions are one of the biggest giveaways. But you can avoid this as long as you section the bottom of hair from the middle of your ear to ear, then braid it, and pin it securely against your head.
- Hides your own hair’s short layers. Thus, you can move freely, and you don’t have to constantly touch your hair to hide them.
- Since you will be clipping the wefts directly over this pinned braid, you can remove some of the ‘bluntness’ of the haircut and allow for the wefts to be the ‘base’ of your hair.
Stack your wefts
When wearing extensions, you have to know the neat trick to stack the wefts on top of each other. You can stack 2 shades of hair extensions together to create more color dimension. This is a good way to hide some of that bluntness in your haircut.
Wave your hair and extensions together
In general, hair extensions blend in a lot better when they are weaved or curled with your own hair, especially if the color match of your extensions isn’t 100% ideal. Everyone who has really thick hair or a blunt haircut can use this method.
Take the end of your own hair along with hair extension, and then curl it as one. After that, it flows in seamlessly into the extensions when you brush it out.
