Hair extensions have been one of the many pieces every woman loves as it gives a healthier, shinier, and voluminous hair look. And one of the most favorite hair extensions of the many - 12-inch hair extensions. But what are 12-inch hair extensions?

What Exactly are 12-Inch Hair Extensions?

Being one of the most loved hair extensions, there are more advantages to it than you know, and it does not limit you from a wide range of hairstyles. 12-inch hair extensions are stretched and straightened to their maximum length, 12 inches, and measured after.

Keep in mind that 12-inch hair extensions are mid-length or shoulder-level. So, if you prefer curly or wavy 12-inch hair extensions, you must know that they might appear shorter but still measure 12 inches in length when flattened and straightened.

You need to be wary when choosing your 12-inch hair extension depending on how and where you will be wearing them. Straight 12-inch hair extensions are preferred as they look like more natural hair. But, there is a wide range of hair extensions styles you can choose from, including different types of 12-inch hair extensions.

Types of 12-Inch Hair Extensions

Wholesalers like Michair.vn prefer bulk and weave hair, which is readily available in their shop. They are often the most simple hair extensions items available nowadays.

But what is bulk hair? Well, bulk hair refers to hair bundles that are kept together with firm elastics, whereas weave hair is stitched or glued directly into the natural hair to prevent hair from falling out or becoming entangled.

There are many available different types of 12-inch hair extensions, such as sew-in and closure hair extensions. These kinds of hair extensions seem to be highly known due to the convenience they provide for people who want to have a quick change without spending too much. 

Sew-in 12-inch Hair Extensions

First on the list is Sew-in hair extensions. Worry not; this type of hair extension is pretty safe and last longer than other types of extension. This 12-inch hair extension uses a rather unique method of doing protective hair and sewing it into the braided hair using a needle and thread.

It's really not a difficult process, but you will need patience as it may take an hour or two to finish it. On top of that, your hair extensions are sewed into a braided pattern, which you can also choose from.

It may be worn for approximately 6 weeks to 8 weeks without damaging your hair and scalp with utmost aftercare.

Fusion 12-inch Hair Extensions

Fusion hair extensions, also known as tip-in hair extensions, need adhesive or heat to attach the hair extension to the natural hair strands. This hair extension is popular because they provide greater versatility as they offer 12-inch hair extensions which will not limit your hairstyles.

With this hair extension, cutting the hair to the length of your liking is also possible. You do not have to worry about washing, drying, and curling because fusion hair extension is just like your natural hair, with no other extra effort.

Not no mention that fusion hair extension can be reused and actually lasts for 6 to 8 months with utmost aftercare.

I-tip 12-inch Hair Extensions

I-tip hair extensions, also known as microbead hair extensions, are among the safest and non-damaging extensions on the market. Why?

Because I-tip hair extensions do not require any heat or adhesive that damages the hair and scalp to install the hair extension. This hair extension has a tiny bead placed on the tip of the hair extension strands that will be used as a lock to attach the synthetic hair to the natural hair.

It doesn't also need any sort of complicated equipment and tools except for specific pliers designed for installing I-tip hair extensions. However, you have to set an appointment with your hairstylist to maintain and tighten (if needed) the microbeads.

Clip-in 12-inch Hair Extensions

With clip-in hair extensions, you do not have to worry about spending an extra dime for maintenance and setting appointments as it is a temporary hair extension. This means you can easily attach and remove the clip-ins onto your natural hair in no time.

Tape-in 12-inch Hair Extensions

Of all the hair extensions, tape-in hair extensions are one of the most popular. Why? Because tape-in isn't as complicated as others. If you haven't noticed, this type of extension uses thin tapes. This procedure does not need any tools or chemicals, and it can last for several months.

Like clip-in, you can simply attach and remove the tape-ins by sticking the thins tapes onto your natural hair. The unique feature of these hair extensions is you can reuse them multiple times without losing their purpose.

Here you can look for any kind of 12-inch hair extensions you want:

Before answering, let's see what the 2 factors that influence 12-inch hair extensions' price are.


The first factor would be quality. In each 12-inch hair extension, the quality of hair is the basis of whether or not the value would be extensive. Most hair extensions users are very specific with what kind of hair they will need.
