  This quick guide will navigate you through buying some of our most popular styles with ease and teach you ALL about the world of hair extensions so that you can make an EXPERT decision! Make her feel beautiful, and we’re sure she’ll make you happy too! Ahem!!! LOL…

 

Let’s get started!

 

So right now, take notice of your girl. What style does she wear her hair in? Long and straight? Short and Curly? Wavy? Afro? Does she switch it up with rainbow colors? Is she blonde or brunette?  If you’re totally clueless because she does ALL of these things don’t worry!

We’re going to help you make a selection based on what she wears most of the time as it is a fantastic way to tell what she likes best! But first, let’s get into what extensions really are!

 

1.Wig, Weave, or Extensions? What’s the difference?

Great question! A wig is a full piece “unit” that covers her entire head from forehead to the back of her neck, and from ear to ear. We sell pre-made and adjustable, but not custom made wigs. They are super easy to take on and off, and the quickest way to change up a style without much hassle. Ladies love ‘em!

A weave is a type of extensions, but the word “weave” is generally used to describe the method that they are attached. They are sewn-in or “weaved” into the natural hair using a needle and thread. These types of extensions are VERY common and extremely popular, as they come in “bundles” that your lady can use to either get a weave, or make her own custom wig! They are very popular with our African American ladies, as they allow their natural hair full protection from the damage of heat from curling irons and blow dryers. Their natural hair is braided down and hidden beneath it, so it gives a ton of freedom to switch up styles. Weaves are typically sewn in to stay on the head for anywhere from 4-6 weeks.

“Weave” or Sew-In Extensions done with bundles

 

Extensions are any form of hair that is used to “extend” the appearance of hair length or to add fullness. They are usually referred to as “extensions” and not a “weave” because of how they are attached. Lots of ladies use clip-in extensions when they want to glam it up for a night because they only take minutes to put in and take out at home. These are very popular with Caucasian, Latina, and Asian ladies, as the hair texture on these extensions typically matches perfectly to their natural hair texture. Their natural hair IS NOT hidden beneath it, but rather blended in with the extensions to create a look that is fuller and longer. These are also VERY common and extremely popular.

We also sell tape in extensions that work very well for ladies with naturally silky textures and they typically stay in for 4-6 weeks as well, but unlike weaves they are NOT sewn-in. These are applied at the salon with tape (which comes on it already so don’t worry if you want to purchase these). Unlike “bundles”, clip-ins and tape-ins aren’t used to make custom wigs, so there is a big difference.

2. Bundles 101

Our hair “bundles” also known as “sew-in” extensions or “weaves” range from short too long in inches. Lengths 10”-12” are considered short. Lengths 14”- 16” are considered medium. Lengths 18”- 20” are considered medium to long and anything over 22” is considered long. The length of the hair will determine how many “bundles” you need to buy! Typically, ladies buy 3 bundles just to be safe. We sell bundles individually or in convenient “bundle deals” which are a pack of 3 bundles that range in length. The benefit to that is that it creates layers in the hair without any effort! Ladies love that! Bundle deals also save you money and guess work! You can always purchase a 4th bundle separately if your lady likes to wear her hair long. Always match a 4th bundle to the longest bundle in your bundle deal!

Example: Brazilian Body Wave Bundle Deal

 

 

Short=2 bundles   Medium= 3 bundles    Long = 4 bundles

Our clip-in, and tape-in extensions are all 20” long or longer. Our wigs vary in length from 14″ to 20″. They are “pre- set” which means you only need to buy one. Here is a quick length guide for you! 

 

 3. Close the Deal!

When purchasing “bundles” or “sew in” type extensions, you want to “close the deal”. That means your girl will need a “closure” or a “frontal”. This is the mesh or “lace” part that makes the weave or custom wig look very natural. It is an essential part of a weave or custom wig.  You’ve probably heard the term “lace front”. A closure or frontal is what this term is referring to. When applied properly, a closure or frontal makes a weave or wig undetectable and indistinguishable from natural hair. They create a new hairline that can be styled just like natural hair, all while protecting the wearer’s real hair from heat and styling damage. What’s the difference? Versatility! A frontal is larger and covers more area (from ear to ear) allowing the wearer to part it on either side. A closure has less range. They typically go from eyebrow to eyebrow. Closures are great for ladies who love a center part or side part or  for the ladies who don’t want to do many style switches. A frontal is great for ladies who like more styling freedom. Both are EXTREMELY popular! Here is an example of what they look like on a model, and what they look like when you’re shopping.

* Side note: You do NOT need to purchase a closure or frontal for our pre-made wigs, clip- in, or tape-in extensions!

 

4. Who’s that Lady?

Third, we’re going to talk about ethnicity. Yes, it matters because it lends itself to the TYPE of extensions she wears or may wear! If she’s of African descent, then she probably is used to the sew-in “weaves” or bundles type of extensions that we discussed earlier, or a wig. If she is European, Latina, or Asian decent (or her natural hair is a silky texture in a similar way) then she may go with clip in extensions or tapes. Keep this in mind when making your selection! If you’re TOTALLY at a loss, reach out to us at contact@xtensionspa.com! We’re here to help you!

 

5. Waves or curls or kinks? What’s the difference?

Let’s talk texture! This may seem like a no brainer to some of you, but many guys just don’t pay that much attention to a woman’s hair texture! Straight hair is obvious, but when you’re not used to shopping for hair, trying to tell the difference between if the hair is wavy or curly, can be a challenge. Keep in mind you’re making your selection based on what she wears MOST OF THE TIME.

Now that you’re an extensions EXPERT… Let’s go shopping for your girl!

We’re going from straight to curly, beginning with our “sew-in” or “weave” style extensions, then we will move on to clip-ins, tape-ins, and finally wigs!
