Human Hair Extensions

Hair grades explained

Human hair is graded in stars, or ‘A’s’ on some websites, to determine it’s quality. It can get a bit confusing but it’s actually pretty simple once you understand how the system works. The stars, or ‘A’s’, refer to the proportion of strands per bundle that actually measure the full length of the bundle. For example, every strand in a bundle of 18″ hair extensions may not measure 18″, as each bundle will be made up of long and short hairs. The more strands that measure the full 18″, the thicker the bundle of hair, and the higher the quality & grading. This is also referred to as single or double drawn, whereby single drawn would be grade A, or 1*, double drawn would be the highest listed grade, typically AAAAA / 5* or higher. At Capelli Remi, we only stock from 3* and above so we can still offer great quality products at a budget to suit everyone.
