We're here to help you put the pieces together and make sense of it all. Welcome to The Tailored Hair Collection, where we'll guide you step-by-step in choosing your next look to ensure it fits your hair needs.

Step 1: Envision Your Desired Style

Are you going for a sleek and polished look with silky straight hair? Or are you after those big, bouncy curls that come from using bodywave hair? Or maybe you should go with kinkier hair, if you're wanting to enhance your natural look. By determining your desired style upfront, you'll narrow down your options and make it easier to find hair extensions that complement your beauty.

Step 2: Choose the Right Type of Extensions

Whether you need lace closures, bundles, or wigs, The Tailored Hair Collection has options to match your lifestyle and hair goals. Bundles, the most popular choice, are versatile and can be used for wig making, quick weaves, ponytails, and sew-ins, so we offer bundle deals with free shipping. Click here to see what bundles are in stock and ready to ship.

Wigs are our top choice due to their durability and long-lasting style. Our wigs come ready to wear and are easy to install, making them a convenient choice. Looking for a protective style that gives your natural hair a break? A lace closure wig might just be what you need... or maybe you want the look of a traditional sew-in without the install time and tension? In that case, try wearing a u-part wig.

Step 3: Select the Hair Type

There are two main types of hair: human hair and synthetic hair. We only work with premium quality 100% human hair sourced from trusted suppliers in East Asia for lasting beauty that surpasses synthetic hair in both durability and natural appearance. 

Selecting the right human hair type depends on your preferences regarding thickness, softness, texture, and price. Our Mink Brazilian Hair is the most popular choice, valued for its affordability, texture variety, and softness. There are five Mink Brazilian Hair textures available: silky straight, body wave, kinky straight, kinky curly and curly coily. Our Raw Indian Hair is the more sumptuous choice, prized for its thickness, durability, and natural luster. There are two Raw Indian Hair textures available: silky straight, body wave.

Step 4: Consider the Hair Color

If you have a specific color in mind, remember that only human hair can be lightened with bleach and colored. Our Mink Brazilian hair typically comes in a natural brown-black color, while Raw Indian hair can vary in shades from dark brown to reddish brown. Some hair strands may show variation in color because they are virgin and collected from different donors. Both our mink and raw hair types are suitable for lightening and coloring processes.

Raw Indian hair, sourced from 1-2 hair donors, tends to lighten more evenly compared to Mink Brazilian hair, which is sourced from 3-4 donors. With proper technique, mink hair can be lightened to honey blonde while retaining its softness. However, raw hair is the recommended choice for color and light blonde experimentation. Keep in mind that any chemical processes, such as lightening, have the potential to affect the lifespan of the hair, so proper care is essential.

Step 5: Select Your Desired Density

Hair thickness is important for achieving your preferred style and ensuring comfort when wearing extensions. Wig density, which indicates the number of bundles used in construction, usually falls within the range of 130% to 250%. Here’s what we recommend if you want natural looking hair extensions. For shorter lengths, like 10 to 14 inches, about two bundles (150%) are generally sufficient. Lengths from 16 to 22 inches may require three bundles (180%), and for lengths of 24 to 30 inches, four or five bundles (200%-250%) may be needed.

If you prefer thicker hair, consider trying our Mink Brazilian Kinky textures, Raw Indian hair, or purchasing our four bundle deals. If you tend to heat up easily, opt for a wig with a 130% density or a style that uses fewer hair bundles for a lighter, more comfortable fit.

Step 6: Evaluate the Quality

When it comes to hair extensions, quality is key. Many suppliers cut costs by offering processed hair, which can include synthetic strands, harsh dyes, animal hair, and even old hair from salon floors. Be cautious of unusually low prices, as they may indicate low-quality hair and lace. Steer clear of suppliers offering thick grey lace, as it is difficult to conceal. Select our HD Film Lace for its ultra-thin, natural appearance, or Swiss Transparent Lace for a slightly thicker yet affordable lace option.

Quality and reliability have been our primary focus at The Tailored Hair Collection since 2018. We only work with trusted suppliers providing unprocessed virgin hair and we always inspect each extension to ensure it meets our quality standards before being carefully packed. 

Step 7: Review Customer Feedback

Customer reviews provide firsthand experiences that assist you in making informed decisions and understanding what to expect from a product or service. We value customer feedback and strive to offer high-quality hair extensions that enhance the beauty of all our customers. Explore the reviews on our homepage to see customer selfies, and please share your own after purchasing and installing our hair – we’d love to hear from you!

Step 8: Consult with a Professional

If you're still uncertain about which hair extensions to choose or how to install them, seek advice from your hairstylist who can provide personalized recommendations. You can also submit a ticket on our contact page, and we’ll do our best to help you find the right extensions.
