Step 1: Try this secret trick to hide short hair under extensions 

Hair extensions blend more easily in thin hair.

Particularly if you want extensions for more length, it’s important to make sure your short hair blends properly. 

If you’ve got short hair, it’s likely that your hair is somewhat blunt at the ends.

This is a cheeky little trick to temporarily thinning out your hair without cutting it, so your hair can blend with your hair extensions.

What to do:

1. Section your hair so that most of your hair is clipped or tied on top of your head.

Leaving about a 1/4 of your hair down.

You might need to leave more or less hair down, depending on how much hair you have.

2. Grab the hair that will sit under your extensions, and tie it in a little ponytail. You can also do a flat bun, or even braid the hair and pin it to your head if you’ve got a lot of hair to hide.

3. Let the rest of your hair down on top and apply your extensions as normal.
