The short blunt cut is super on-trend right now.
If you're thinking about it, you should definitely rock it.
But are you a little nervous to make the cut?
There's no doubt at some point, you or one of your gal pals has said the words:
"I'm thinking about cutting my hair short. I love how her hair looks short, I'd love to have my hair like that but I'm scared! What if I cut it and then I miss my long hair?"
Yep, we've all heard it, or said it, before.
Well, guess what...
You can have your short hair and long hair it too.
Halo hair extensions are perfect for when you do the chop...
but you still want the option of long locks.
Blunt cuts can be hard to hide.
That's why having your styling on point is KEY to mastering a short hair to long hair transformation...
Let's look at @rihannon.abrahams, pictured below. (Rihannon wears the MEDIUM Halo in Beige Blonde/Dark Blonde blend.)
You can see her natural haircut is very short, with a thick, straight blunt cut.
At first glance, you would think it would be almost impossible to hide short hair like this under extensions.
But here's the trick:
As Rihannon has tried and tested: "the best way to disguise a short blunt cut with your Halo is to work with what you’ve got"
Meaning style your Halo to compensate for your short hair.
Cut your Halo to an appropriate length.
Our Halos are 20 inches long.
Generally most girls, even with long hair, give the Halo a little trim to make the length blend better and look more like their real hair.
So for short hair girls, you'll definitely need to give the Halo a decent chop.
Rihannon kept her Halo quite long when she had long hair.
After getting her blunt haircut, she gave her Halo a shorter trim than usual.
As you can see in the previous photo, it still gives her plenty of length.
She also added a bunch of layers.
Layering is crucial to make extensions look real in short hair.
Textured layers add more volume to perfectly disguise a blunt cut underneath.

After you've cut your Halo, add more volume and texture with curls.
Textured waves and curls will be your best friend when wearing hair extensions to go from short hair to long hair.
Using a 32mm curling wand, create loose, natural waves.
Rule of thumb:
The more texture you give your hair, the better your extensions will blend with your short hair.

And that's it!
Once you've cut and styled your extensions, you can go from short hair to long hair instantly, whenever you like.
If you're thinking about making the chop and you don't already own extensions.
We recommend the Halo, obvs.
Besides all the other benefits of a Halo (find out more here) Halos are the best extensions for short hair, simply because the Halo sits on your head.
You don't need to attach the Halo directly to your hair strands, as you would with clip in or tape in extensions.
This means you can effortlessly put on and remove your Halo, to suit whether you're in a short hair mood or feeling those long hair vibes.
