Guides on measuring hair weave lengths

Everyone may know that measuring hair length is measuring all from the hair top (root) to tip. However, some may not know that different hairstyles require different measuring techniques. Knowing these differences will help in minimizing misunderstanding between hair sellers and buyers. Below are guides on straight and curly wavy hair length measuring.

How to measure straight hair length simply

Straight hair is the most easy-to-measure hairstyle. What you need is a tape ruler which has a unit in inches or centimeters or both. Firstly, make sure you keep the hair straight. Then, you place the ruler point of 0 inch or 0 centimeter on the hair root. The number that the hair tip reaches will be the length of the hair.

The process is fast and easy. Therefore, there is hardly any misunderstanding about the lengths of this hairstyle.

How to measure curly wavy hair length properly

The misunderstanding about hair weave length is mostly seen at curly wavy hairstyles. Some customers may measure the hair and complain that the bundles are way too shorter than what they ordered. If you’re also in this case, don’t rush to complain. Please be patient and make sure you measure the hair right as follows first!

We should note that the hair length counted is the length of natural straight hair materials used. Therefore, the key to proper method is to stretch the curly wavy hair to its natural straight texture before measuring. Then, you just need to measure the length from root to end for the exact length.

Normally, curly wavy hair in its non-stretched form is 2-5 inches shorter than its real length. The tighter the curls are, the shorter they look. Please always keep this in mind to avoid unnecessary misunderstanding with the hair sellers.

Hair lengths can have impacts on your decisions of hairstyles as well as the bundle quality grades. Therefore, knowing the 3 groups of lengths (short, medium and long) will help to make easier decisions.

Short weave hair lengths (8-14 inches)

Short hair lengths are those from 8 inches to 14 inches. The hair of this group is usually around your neck-shoulder’s length. Therefore, perfect hairstyles are bob and lob styles with many textures like wavy, coily or bone straight, etc.

With this hair length group, choosing the single drawn quality grade is both economical and effective. The hair is short, so a 100-gram bundle of single quality still ensures a high fullness. You don’t need to spend more money on double drawn or super double drawn quality.

Medium weave hair lengths (16-22 inches)

Medium hair lengths are those from 16 to 22 inches. The hair is supposed to reach from your shoulder to your mid back. This is the most popular choice of hair length group as all hairstyles look good with a medium length. From bone straight to wavy and curly, the styles are not too long or too short, perfect for all looks.

With medium hair extension length, the choice of quality grades also depends on the volume you want to add to your real hair. Normally, choosing double drawn or super double drawn grades is more recommended.

Long weave hair lengths (24-30+ inches)

Long hair lengths are those from 24 to 30 inches or even longer, to 40+ inches. This hair length group is suitable for ones who want super long and impressive hair look. Any style can be applied, including bone straight, voluminous curly or slightly wavy. Among them, blond bone straight and ginger coily styles are the queens of this year.

With these long hair weaves, choosing the super double drawn grade is absolutely highly recommended. However, it’s also okay to choose the double drawn one if you prefer a natural slight volume added.
