What hair extensions are best for short hair?

Hair extensions are a great way for those with short hair to add density, volume and length. While some people prefer a shorter hairstyle, others are unable to grow their hair beyond a certain point and look to hair extensions to get the long hair that they desire.

So with that said, what are the best human hair extensions for people who have short hair lengths? Superhairpieces has provided three types of hair extensions in particular.

Clip-in hair extensions

Contrary to popular belief, clip-ins are great extensions for short hair. These extensions are attached to the scalp using clips and are a very affordable option compared to other extensions. Additionally, they can be manually installed, are meant to be worn for special occasions and can be taken off at the end of the day.

However, they should only be used as an option if your hair is short and thick. If your hair is too thin, the hair clips will not only be visible, but could also pull back only your hair and cause shedding.

Tape-in hair extensions

When it comes to short hair, tape-in extensions are an ideal solution. Tape-in hair extensions involve the extension being taped onto the scalp and are arguably the most popular kind of hair extension. Unlike clip-in extensions, tape-ins can also be worn for an extended period of time for those who want a more semi-permanent option. Additionally, they can be installed manually, though it can take some time with most preferring to have them installed by a professional.

The biggest benefits of tape-in extensions are that they are lightweight with the tapes being virtually invisible. That means they not only blend with your natural hair, but even those with thin hair can make use of them.

Nano link hair extensions

Another option for those with short hair is nano link hair extensions. These extensions use small metal beads to attach the extension to your natural hair. They are virtually invisible and undetectable due to their size and as a result, are a great option especially for those with fine hair looking to add volume and length.

However, they are much more expensive than clip-in or tape-in extensions and will require a professional or stylist to install.
