How do I choose between the 120g, 160g, 180g, and 220g set?

When choosing your ideal Luxy weight, it's important to opt for a set that best matches your hair type, and not necessarily the type of hair you want to have. Also, keep in mind if you have lots of hair strands or short hair will also need to consider a heavier weight. 

Some common misconceptions we often come across with customers that can sometimes lead to a wrong set being purchased is:

  • "I have thin hair and I want really thick hair, so I should opt for the 220 gram set, right?"
  • "I have thick hair and I want more length than volume – is 120 grams good for me?"
  • "I have short thin hair – is 120 grams good for me?"
  • "I have thin hair with lots of hair strands – is 120 grams good for me?"

 

 

The answer is no to all four and we'll explain why below.

120 Gram Classic Set

About

Our 120 gram Classic set is our thinnest set and is ideal for fine and fragile hair types. 

Set shown in photo: 120g Jet Black Classic Luxies

This is an ideal set for you if

  • You have a small amount of hair and
  • Your hair strands are fine and
  • Your hair is below shoulder length (medium to long hair) and
  • You are looking to add some volume and length

You may be able to tell from above that the key word here is "and". The reason why we emphasize this is because if you fit all of the above points, our 120 gram Classic set is ideal for you. If, for example, you have fine hair strands but a lot of them, you will need to consider a heavier weight. Or, if you have above shoulder length (short) hair, you will also need to consider a heavier weight. 

 

160 Gram Classic Set

About  

Our 160 gram Classic set is a medium-thickness set and is ideal for thin to average hair types. 

But wait, didn't you say that the 120 gram set was ideal for thin hair types? Good catch—we'll be happy to explain why shortly. 

In the meantime, this set comes with a total of 10 wefts, which is one more four clip weft than our 120 gram set. The difference in each set is not only the extra weft, but also that there is more hair attached to each weft. The hair strand thickness itself will remain the same.

Our 160 gram set includes the following 10 wefts: 1 x 8" weft, 1 x 7" weft, 2 x 6" wefts, 2 x 4"wefts, 4 x 1" wefts, as shown in the image below.

This is an ideal set for you if you have

Average Hair

  • You have an average amount of hair
    • If you have thin hair strands but a lot of them, this set is recommended
  • You want extra length and volume while still maintaining a natural look

Thin Hair

  • If you have thin and short hair, this set is recommended
    • Short hair = above shoulder length up to chin length
    • Why? Because you will need the extra hair and wefts to achieve a natural transition where your real hair ends and the extensions begin. If you choose a set that is too thin for your hair, the ends will look stringy and unnatural

180 Gram Seamless Set

About

Our 180 gram Seamless set is an additional option for those who are considering our 160 gram Classic set. Our Seamless set is a medium-thickness set and is ideal for thin to average hair types. 

Similar to our 160-gram Luxies, this set comes with a total of 10 wefts, but has more hair attached to each weft making the full set slightly thicker than the 160-gram Classic set. The following 10 wefts are included: 1 x 8" weft, 1 x 7" weft, 2 x 6" wefts, 2 x 4"wefts, 4 x 1" wefts, as shown in the image below. 

So, what's the difference then? The biggest difference between our Classic and Seamless extensions is how the wefts are manufactured. Our Seamless extensions are made with a thin silicone base which is 50% thinner than our Classic fabric-stitched wefts. They will remain virtually undetectable in your hair. 

 

This is an ideal set for you if you have

Average Hair

  • You have an average amount of hair
    • If you have thin hair strands but a lot of them, this set is recommended
  • You want extra length and volume while still maintaining a natural look

Thin Hair

  • If you have thin and short hair, this set is recommended
    • Short hair = above shoulder length up to chin length
    • Why? Because you will need the extra hair and wefts to achieve a natural transition where your real hair ends and the extensions begin

220 Gram Classic Set

About

Our 220 gram Classic set is our thickest set and is ideal for average and thick hair types.

But wait, didn't you just say before that the 160g set is best for medium hair types? Which one is it! Noted—we'll clarify this in one moment.

Similar to our 160 gram set, our 220 gram set comes with a total of 10 wefts. As a reminder, this is the same number of wefts as our 160 gram set, and one more four clip weft than our 120 gram set. 

The difference between this set and our 160 gram set is that our 220 gram set will have more hair attached to each 10 wefts making it thicker and fuller. The hair strand thickness itself will remain the same.

Our 220 gram set includes the following 10 wefts: 1 x 8" weft, 1 x 7" weft, 2 x 6" wefts, 2 x 4"wefts, 4 x 1" wefts, as shown in the image below. 

This is an ideal set for you if you have

Average Hair

  • You have average hair but want an extra voluminous look (or at the least want the option—you can wear the full set for lots of volume or take out a few of the wefts for a more natural look)

Thick Hair

  • You have a lot of hair
  • You have thick hair and want length
  • Again, it is important to match the set to your hair type. Even if you aren't necessarily looking to add more volume to your already thick hair, choosing a set that is too thin will result in an unnatural blend with stringy and thin ends. 

Short Hair

  • You have a lob or a blunt haircut
  • You have shoulder length or shorter hair that is medium/thick
  • As before, the reason for this is to ensure that there is enough hair and wefts to create the seamless transition from where your short hair ends to where the extensions begin.
