1. Full Lengthening

If you want a natural and invisible result then the quantity of extensions should match your hair volume. Therefore, the number of packs you purchase depends on how thick your hair is. The volume created by the extensions has to adapt to yours, otherwise they become visible (either because the quantity of extensions isn't enough for your hair or because there are too many). Besides the quantity, it's also very important to consider your hair length. Thus, there are two factors to keep in mind, a) how much hair you have and b) your hair length.

 

a) What kind of hair do you have?

Let's group your hair into 3 types of thickness (thin, medium and thick) to better understand how many packs to purchase.

Thin Hair

Do you have fine hair? 3 packs is what you need!

For an even more invisible result choose:

2 Standard Tape Extensions + 1 Evolution Tape Extensions

b) Do you have 15/20 cm long hair?

Another factor you have to consider when choosing the quantity of packs is your hair length. If you want to add full length and your hair isn't very long, about 15/20 cm, then you will need to purchase an extra pack of extensions.

2. Adding volume

Want to add volume making your hair full of body? In this case, you will need to purchase 2 packs of extensions.

If you want to add volume it could either be because you have very fine hair or not a lot, so we suggest purchasing 1 pack of Standard Tape Extensions and 1 pack of Evolution Tape Extensions. With Evolution Tape Extensions your strands blend naturally and won't be detected, click here to find out why.

N.B.: If you have really fine hair with little volume, you can apply a single strand by putting a single side adhesiveon the back. In fact, when your hair is very thin and with little volume a double strand can become too heavy and visible, while a single side strand will blend better with your hair and be difficult to detect.

3. Partial lengthening

Do you have layered hair and just want to add length to the back side of your head? Or rather, you want to add length to the front? Do you just want to create some side locks?

Because these are all partial lengthenings you just need to purchase 1 pack of extensions especially if the area you have to add length to isn't very big, but if the area should be bigger then we recommend purchasing 2 packs of extensions. If you decide to purchase 2 packs we recommend purchasing 1 pack of Standard Tape Extensions and 1 pack of Evolution Tape Extensions. To better understand why, check out the following article: Standard and Evolution tape-in extensions comparison.

4. Fringe

Want to change look by adding a fringe but don't want to have your hair cut? You can do this by applying 1 pack of extensions.
