Whether or not to go for a full head of hair extensions is a decision that many first timers struggle with, as it is often not explained the difference between the two, and the impact this will have on the over all look of your hair extensions.
Here we shall discuss the main differences to help you to make the right decision when choosing your hair extensions.
Amount of hair
The main difference between a full head and a half head is of course the amount of hair that is fitted. With a full head of hair extensions you would be looking at having between 150- 180 individual hair extensions fitted, whereas for a half head it is more likely to be between 50-100 hair extensions. This will mean that a full head of hair extensions will have a thicker overall appearance, simply due to the sheer amount of hair fitted.
When a full head of hair extensions are fitted, row upon row of hair extensions are placed around the scalp to ensure the maximum amount of hair and coverage is achieved for a beautiful full head of hair extensions. With a half head the same process is used, however a gap is left between every row. This will mean that for both a full head and a half head the hair extensions will cover the same area of the head, the only difference being there are gaps between the sections for the half head.
When would a full head or half head be needed?
There are a variety of difference reasons as to why an individual would be looking to enhance their appearance with hair extensions, as are there many variations to how a customer would like the hair extensions to look and feel overall, and it is these variations that will make you suitable for either a full of half head.
A full head is suitable if you are looking to add volume and thickness, if your existing hair cut is quite short, or if you have naturally thick hair. For the majority of customer hair types and overall look they are wanting to achieve a full head is the most suitable option.
A half head would only be suitable or required if you are looking to add volume only, and are not looking to increase the length of your hair. In addition to this if you have a particularly small head, or if your hair is unusually thin, then a half head may be more suitable than a full head.
