What's the key to seamlessly blending hair extensions?

“The best way to blend extensions with natural hair is by starting with the right color, length and texture,” says Niki Galanomatis, Platinum Seamless educator and stylist.

“For a perfectly blended and multi-dimensional look, try to mix and match solids that are slightly lighter or darker than the client’s natural hair, or use an already existing ombre/sombre or highlighted extension. When using fashion shades, try applying one extension on top that matches the client’s natural hair and sandwiching the fashion color on the bottom. This will leave the client with a gorgeous, and much more natural peek-a-boo effect. Cutting extensions in long layers will remove the weight line, versus a blunt cut, which might leave hair extensions looking heavy or unnatural. Creating texture in the hair and relieving weight by layering will result in soft, natural movement with a seamless finish.”
