The 40″ Long Hair Craze Everyone is Loving

40 Inch Bundles are Hot Right Now!

Rapunzel, Rapunzel let down your hair…

That is what we should be saying to female celebrities such as Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. nowadays. The two rappers are both known for their bold hair looks. We catch them playing around with color all the time. Now they have taken their hair to new lengths, literally, by sporting tresses 40 inches and even longer.

40″ hair has become a trend now, and we have these two ladies to thank. Many are taking note and following the extremely long hair trend.

I remember when 18-inch hair was considered to be long. For prom, I remember rocking an 18 inch sew in with an invisible part. I felt like Rapunzel, nowadays that won’t even cut it.

Virgin hair came out, and I started hearing about lengths as long as 20 inches, then 30 inches came along which were a huge shocker to me. I never imagined that people would request anything past that. The longer the hair, the pricier. These lengths can go past your waist depending on your height.

Now customers are requesting bundles of 40 inches and sometimes even longer to achieve the hair look that their favorite celebrities rock.

Celebrity Hair

These long hairstyles are reminiscent of Cher’s hair back in the 70s; long black tresses but taken to new heights. We’ve seen many rock long dark straight hair with a middle part as a look. Naomi Campbell and Kim Kardashian usually rock this as their signature look yet artists like Nicki and Cardi take it to new heights. Even Rihanna has been seen rocking long tresses with fabulous fashion looks.

Nicki Minaj & Cardi B.

It is no secret to us that Nicki Minaj is a fan of the long hair trend and the ringleader behind it. We first saw her rocking an astonishing 60-inch weave earlier this year at Paris Fashion Week. Her daring hair and outfit combos were the topic of discussion all fashion week.

She took the long hair trend a step further in the new music video “Motorsport”. She rocked long pink braids showing that the long hair trend is not limited to weaves and ponytails.

And of course with Cardi B. and Nicki Minaj being the trendsetters that they are others are following suit. The two rappers are not only influential in music but hair as well. They Frequently change up their hairstyles and their fans, and followers take notice.

Cardi B. posted numerous videos on her Instagram strutting her long tresses. Her long tresses rocked back and forth in a hypnotizing motion.

Nicki Minaj posted a video on social media rocking extremely long tresses telling us how bad girls go to Prague… “you can’t even spell Prague.” Her Prague video went viral as fans alike reposted it.

It gained, even more, popularity when people from all over the world recreated the video with their catch on it. Fans went as far as recreating her long hair look.

Influencers Wearing Long Hair

With millions following the two on social media, the trend spread…

Different influencers started rocking the long hair trend as well and showing their followers how to do so. Thus the long hair craze has been evangelized and spread. I guess you can hashtag #longhairdontcare.

Where to Find 40″ Hair Extensions

Since the style is still somewhat, new long bundles can be hard to find, especially quality bundles.

That is why we here at Private Label Extensions offer quality bundles in super long lengths.

Our Vietnamese Straight hair extensions are available in a variety of lengths up to 40 inches!

The great thing about Vietnamese hair is that it is thick, so you don’t have to worry about having a thin, lifeless look. The hair can be colored so if you want to switch it up and add some color like Cardi B. and Nicki Minaj you can too. The hair comes in a natural 1B color and can be dyed with ease all the way up to a #613 blonde.

Get The Look

Long hair is now incorporated in ponytails, sew-ins, and wigs. The good thing is that you recreate this look either by creating a wig or getting a sew in.

You can get the look using 4-5 bundles of our 40-inch Vietnamese straight hair and closure. The longer the hair, the more bundles you will need to create a full look. That is why we highly recommend using 4-5 bundles of hair if you want a full look.

Depending on how you want your hair to layer you may be able to stagger lengths. Bundles from 32 inches to 40 inches are your best bet.

Our longest straight textured closure is our Brazilian silky straight which goes up to 18 inches. A closure will give you a stable part, and our closures are also known for lasting long.

If you would like a flexible part, then use one of our frontals. A frontal will allow you to switch your part from middle to side.

If you would like to put your hair up in a ponytail, then use our 360 frontal. This will allow you to rock your hair in a ponytail. Another way you can get a ponytail is by putting your natural hair up in a bun and then attaching the long extensions to your hair as a ponytail. Cardi B. rocked a long ponytail look here:

Maintenance

Long hair can be a lot to handle and maintain. If you want to make maintenance easier, I recommend making a wig. A wig will allow you to take off the hair when you go to bed so you won’t have to deal with wrapping your extensions at night.

You will also be able to brush your hair off your head. This will make it easier for you to brush the hair all the way down since the hair is so long.

Speaking of brushing, make sure to invest in a quality hair brush. Correctly, you should be using a hair extension brush. This will help keep your hair silky straight and smooth.

Due to the hair being so long you want to make sure that you are taking time to brush your hair.

Are 60 Inch Hair Extensions Next?

The request for 60″ weave is starting to increase.

Just sourcing these lengths is a challenge and Private Label Extensions has some of the best at doing this. The best chance of finding hair of this length is from temples in India.

Are 60″ hair extensions even a good idea?

Being able to manage hair of this length would for sure be a challenge.

60″ = 5 Feet

This would be as tall as some of our clients. For a sew-in, we would not recommend it. As a wig with the ability to just throw it on for a hot night out? Maybe!

Ready for 40″ Bundles?

Are you daring enough to sport the long hair trend?

If so how long will you go? I know I will be rocking this hair again during the winter, what about you?

    I have a 30″ 360 wig that I absolutely love! I don’t think I’d go longer than that! The cost for 40″ bundles would be outrageous! Also, most styles are just straight past the 30″ mark. Now I will say some look amazing, but not at all natural.

    1. Fennella Miller says:

      Wow that 30′ 360 wig sounds beautiful! We actually offer 40 inch raw Vietnamese hair for a very affordable price! I love extravagant hair so I’ll be rocking 40inches soon!

    2. Ivona says:

      Oooo 30” 360 frontal 😍 I bet it looks amazing

  2. Candace Davis says:

    You definitely gotta have the right swag to rock these long tresses. Cardi looks amazing with the red bundles

  3. Brittany says:

    I agree with Candace, you DEFINITELY have to have swag to rock 40” of hair. Regardless though I do believe women should steps out of their comfort zone for once & do something daring like 40” bundles. Me personally the longest I would Go is probably 30” & that might even be pushing it cause I’m only 5’3” haha!

  4. Ivona says:

    I want to try 28” with a bomb frontal but that’s as long as I’m willing to go is that I’m 5’4. I’m wondering how these longer lengths hold up day to day for our everyday girls being that celebs change their hair so often. I love the look of the sleek 30” and 40” bundles though. I recently watched a popular YouTuber who had 60” installed.😮 I couldn’t imagine.

  5. Melissa Brown says:

    I wouldn’t know what to do with 40″ of hair. The longest I have done is 18″ and it gets on my nerves sometimes. I would like to try 22″ I think it is pretty but I don’t know. 60″ that’s a lot of hair.

  6. Raquellwashington says:

    OMG!!! I would love to rock a 40″ style. I’m gonna be doing a photoshoot soon for my website and I need to have all my models with the hottest looks. I didn’t know they would be available here. I have a dropship account but now that I know I will definitely be looking into it. I’m nervous about the price though.

    1. Private Label Extensions says:

      Yeeees! It is amazing quality! Check out our 40″ Vietnamese hair!

  7. Chevyree Akridge says:
