Length Meets Luxury: How To Get Extra-Long Hair

BELLAMI / News / Published: Oct-01-2023

Get ready to make a statement with the latest trend in hair—extra-long length! Celebrities like Zendaya and Sydney Sweeney were spotted sporting waist-grazing locks at Paris Fashion Week, and Harper's Bazaar has called the look the "'quiet luxury' of hair lengths."  

The Quiet Luxury Trend Reaches Hair

In the beauty space, quiet luxury is about taking care of yourself and investing in your appearance so you can be low maintenance in your day to day. That's why wearing hair extensions or growing your hair long enough embodies that sentiment. Extra-long hair takes work but gives off an effortlessly cool vibe, unlike how the 'old money' bob is meant to look polished and high maintenance—think Meredith Blank. 

 

How Do I Get Extra Long Hair?

Did you know your hair grows about 0.5 to 1.7 centimeters (about 0.67 in) per month? We can thank the Trichological Society for that depressing statistic. Luckily, there's no need for hair envy because it's easier than ever to have Rapunzel-esque length with clip-in hair extensions.

 

All BELLAMI Clip-Ins are ethically sourced and sustainably produced with high-quality, 100% Remy human hair. These extensions look and feel like your natural hair and are easy to apply and remove, so you can switch up your look without the painstaking wait.

BELLAMI Silk Seam™ Extensions

The Invisi-Weft™ technology used in BELLAMI Silk Seam™ extensions creates 30% thinner wefts, making them virtually undetectable. This gives you a sleeker look and makes the extensions blend seamlessly with your natural hair. We suggest these XL lengths:

BELLAMI Classic Lace Weft Extensions

Our Lace Weft technology can support more hair for added volume. BELLAMI Classic extensions can give you a stunning and dramatic transformation. If you have coarse or very thick hair, we suggest going for these instead of the Silk Seam™. We recommend this collection's 22" Bellissima, 22" Boo-Gatti and 24" Magnifica extensions. The 22" Boo-Gatti™ comes with an extra volumizing weft to give you a fuller and more glamorous look.

How To Care for Long Hair

If you have hair extensions or natural long hair (congratulations on your patience!), taking good care of it is crucial to keep it looking and feeling luxurious. One of the most important things you can do is to brush your hair gently and often to prevent tangling and distribute the scalp's natural oils throughout the hair. Always brush it before getting it wet and start at the bottom, working your way up to avoid breakage. 

 

Another tip is to avoid washing your hair too frequently to prevent drying out your scalp and hair. When you do wash it, use lukewarm water and a hydrating, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. After washing, use a leave-in conditioner to lock in moisture and detangle. Once a week, swap your regular conditioner with a rich mask to deeply condition and repair damage caused by brushing and heat styling.

It is essential to minimize heat and use it safely. Towel dry or let your hair air dry 80 to 90 percent before bringing out the big guns, a.k.a. the blow dryer. If you curl or straighten your hair, apply a thermal protectant before any heat touches your hair. Also, consider using bond-building treatments to strengthen your hair, allowing it to grow longer and prevent breakage between cuts.
