Hair Extensions Frequently Asked Questions
Where does the hair come from?
The best quality 100% human hair comes from India, Europe or Asia. You can read more about this below.
Can you match my hair color and texture?
Yes. The hair comes in almost every color and a few textures. Colors are typically blended for the most beautiful effect.
Are hair extensions suitable for me?
Hair extensions are perfect for most people. However, there could be factors, such as unsuitable current hair condition, hair loss, or hair damage that could prevent extensions from being an option. You will also need to assess your willingness to maintain the extensions. While they are real hair, extensions do require more care than your natural hair.
Do I need a consultation?
Yes, a consultation is required to decide if this service is right for you and to answer your questions. During the consultation, your stylist will analyze your hair to determine the color, type, and quantity of extensions you will require to achieve your desired look.
How long does my hair need to be? How long CAN it be with extensions?
Your hair should be at least 3-4 inches for thickening or volume and at least 4-5 inches for a full lengthening. Extensions are typically available in 14", 16", 18", 22", and 24" lengths. Actual length depends on how you wear your hair (wavy or straight).
How are they applied? Hair extensions can be applied to your hair in many different ways including: hand tied (Invisible Bead, Habit method, Natural Beaded Row method) taping, fusion, and beading. Different methods have different advantages. The method you choose will depend on many factors: your hair, your lifestyle, your budget, and your needs, for starters. The newest method, hand-tied, offers a virtually undetectable installation and, by eliminating tape, glue, plastic, and other unnatural elements, you are left with a strong, organic product that does not break down quickly.
Other common methods are tape-in, fusion & micro-bead. We've seen many other salons and stylists promoting just one method as being superior. You will often find that those salons have simply not made the investment in time, training, and equipment to be able to offer more than one type of extension application method. If you are undecided on which type of hair extensions are best for you, and you want an unbiased opinion, you should consult with a stylist in a salon where the stylists have training in all of the major application methods.
Hand-Tied - The latest and most popular choice for hair extensions. Scroll through your Instagram feed and you'll see your favorite influencer's beautiful long natural-looking hair. Their secret is hand-tied weft extensions. The wefts are extremely light which makes it easier for your stylist to layer the wefts and give you long length with thickness that is hard to achieve with any other type of hair extensions. With proper installation, hand-tied wefts are virtually undetectable in the hair. Hand-tied wefts last longer than other types of hair extensions. By eliminating tape, glue, plastic, and other unnatural elements, you are left with a strong, organic product that does not break down quickly. With proper care, a client can expect to get 8-12 months of wear before they need to replace their wefts.
Fusion - Fusion hair extensions use an adhesive bond.
Heat is used to activate a bond to attach extensions to your hair. The best quality fusion hair extensions are applied using a keratin bond. Since your hair is made up of 90% keratin, this bond is more gentle on your hair than the adhesive used by most other brands. These extensions can last four months or more. They can not be adjusted (moved closer to your scalp) as your hair grows.
