Different Type Of Hair Textures & Types

Updated: Oct 19, 2021

Choosing the right texture for your hair extensions can have a big impact on loving your new look. While the blending process of the hair extension application will usually help your hair extensions blend with your current hair, choosing the right texture can help make the styling process easier and more flawless.

At Premier Violet Hair we offer 8 beautiful hair extensions textures in every color, style, length, size, and weight. Explore our hair extension textures below or shop hair extensions now.

1. Straight Hair Extension Texture

Straight hair is simple, classic, easy to care for and maintain, and easy to style. It also looks great on almost everyone.

If you already have straight hair, you may opt to choose straight hair texture to simplify your daily styling process. This hair will increase your volume and length with minimal effort. It can look great with your hair in a wash-and-go style or can be styled in the same way you style your natural hair.

For curly- or wavy-haired clients, straight hair extensions are still a great choice. Some customers choose to style their hair straight to match the sleek and shiny look of the hair extension. Others use the straight hair extension texture as an easy “blank slate” to curl and style the hair similar to their natural or desired style, or to try new hairdos.

If you’re choosing a permanent hair extension with straight hair texture, you may choose to opt in for a Brazilian Blowout or a keratin treatment to relax your waves and simplify styling for up to 12 weeks. For temporary solutions or for those who don’t want to chemically relax their hair, blow drying, straightening creams, or high-heat straighteners can help blend your style.

We recommend Brazilian hair type for fine/medium straight hair clients and Asian hair type for those who have thicker hair shafts but straight hair.

2. Body Wave Hair Extension Texture

Body wave is a loose, natural curl. It’s not completely straight, but not too curly, providing body, volume, and dimension to your hair. The wave tends to flow in a single flow, creating a full-bodied, smooth, wavy look.

If you want to add a little style and intrigue to your regularly straight hair, body wave is a great option. You can replicate the body wave look in the rest of your natural hair if desired. Simply use your hair straightener to create gentle curls or by using hair rollers.

This hair texture is also great as an extension for naturally curly or wavy hair. It will add body and volume, giving your hair a luxurious boost.

Please note that the curls in the body wave start to relax over time, making the waves less pronounced. Since we always use pure Remy hair in our hair extensions, you can rejuvenate the look during hairstyling by creating flat-iron curls or using hair rollers.

We recommend Brazilian hair type for fine/medium hair clients and Malaysian or Peruvian hair type for those who have thicker hair shafts.

3Loose Wave Hair Extension Texture

The loose waves hair texture has very loose, almost wave-like curls. The difference between this hair texture and the body wave is the loose waves don’t flow in a single piece like the body wave tends to.

While the loose wave has loose, relaxed and soft curls, these curls are “piece-y” enough to create texture and dimension in your hair.
