Which length hair extensions should I choose?

Updated 2 months ago by Rebecca

It's important to get the length of your hair extensions just right. Our most popular and versatile length is 20 inches, for most people they come to bust level (depending on height and frame).

The best way of checking which length hair extension will be most suitable for you is to measure from the middle of your ear downwards.

This will show you roughly where the hair extensions will come to and also give you an idea of how much longer the hair extensions will be compared to your own hair.

In previous years, style trends dictated that short hair with long hair extensions was an OK look. Although its still OK to wear long extensions in short hair, current style trends tend to favour hair which is more subtly extended.

As a rule of thumb, hair which is already longer than shoulder length can take the longer extensions and hair which is shoulder length and above tend to work best with extensions no longer than 20-22 inches.

Take a look at our blog post for more information on how to choose the perfect length of Milk + Blush extensions.

You may have noticed that we recently changed the way we label our lengths - so why the change?

Great question! From a manufacturing point of view, you'll be pleased to hear there are no changes. To keep things simple we no longer advertise the lengths within a range but Milk + Blush hair extensions are still made in the same way 🙌 So it's still the case that the extensions will usually run just a little longer than the length stated, just as a buffer. As always, Milk + Blush hair extensions are cut and trimmed... It ensures a fuller and healthier appearance. As you will see in the picture comparing full head sets below, not all lengths are the same - some suppliers stretch the hair or add a few long and thin strands which when you receive will look thin and in need of a trim. You don’t have to worry about this with Milk + Blush hair extensions.
