At Shelley’s Hair and Spa, our talented and friendly stylists are true miracle workers when it comes to helping those with short hair achieve amazing length and volume with hair extensions.

Hair Extensions for Short Hair: Can You Do It?

The Challenges of Short Hair Extensions

Now, we’ll be honest with you. Applying extensions to short hair does come with some unique challenges compared to longer styles. With less hair to grip and blend the extensions into, it requires advanced skills and techniques that not all stylists may have experience with. The length of your current hair is also a factor, as very cropped pixie or boyish styles may not have quite enough hair to properly secure the extensions.

However, have no fear! Our seasoned Shelley’s Hair and Spa professionals specialize in working with short hair extensions. We’ve helped countless clients like you achieve their long hair dreams, and we’ll ensure your new look is seamless, beautiful, and natural.

Best Extension Types for Short Hair

Not all hair extension methods are ideal for every head of short hair. Based on our many years of experience, we generally recommend tape in hair extensions as a great option for clients with short styles wanting to add amazing length:

  • Tape-In Extensions: This lightweight, low-maintenance, and versatile extension option can work beautifully for shorter styles. The weft of luscious hair is secured close to the root using medical-grade adhesive tape. For shorter hair, we can apply tape-ins using your existing layers as the base, creating the appearance of gorgeous long layers.
