A guide to hair extensions for short hair

It’s a common preconception that clients with short hair cannot have hair extensions. This cannot be further from the truth as the only short hair rule for using Zen Luxury Hair Extensions is that you need at least 5-8cms of hair for our U-Tip, I-Tip or Tape application systems to grip the hair without pulling or pinching. This will give your client the comfort, security and confidence they’re looking for as well as an amazing new hair style!

These photos on the left were taken during our UK launch at Salon International last October. This particular lady came onto our stand with an asymmetrical pixie crop. But after our extensionists worked their magic, she left with this stunning below-the-shoulder, side-swept style that you can see here. Applying extensions on a lady who had such short hair attracted quite a crowd. Using Zen’s Luxury Series tape extensions surprised them still further as tape extensions have traditionally been thought to be suitable only for longer hair. However, Zen’s luxury tape extensions are discreet enough to fit to almost any length or style.

Clients come into salons having being inspired by their hair idols. Everyone from Frankie Bridge to Miley Cyrus to Emily Watson to Rihanna, who have all demonstrated that short hair can be worn on almost any face shape and with any hair texture. Zen now provides you with the ability to deliver amazing creations with their range of lengths, quality, colour and application methods to suit your clients’ needs and budget.

It’s true that for many people with shorter hair, U-Tip and I-Tip are the most commonly used application systems. However, as we’ve shown, Zen’s luxury tape extensions when used correctly will work perfectly. Zen hair extensions will give your clients a complete choice and looks that they’ll be wearing with confidence for months.

We’ve put together three styles we love below. The great thing about short hair combined with Zen Luxury extensions is that you are only confined by the limits of your imagination. There are a multitude of styles to create that will be suitable for days in the office as well as nights out. Tucked behind the ears, long side-swept fringes can look as formal as the most conventional of cuts.

A short cut combined with Zen luxury hair extensions really is the most versatile style transformation you can create.

Frankie Bridge’s cut must be one of the year’s most requested styles. Even starting from a platform of shorter hair than this, Zen luxury hair extensions, using 100% virgin remy hair, will give your clients exactly this look and colour (adellika.com)
