Hair Extensions

With perfect texture, color matching, and cut for hair extensions and/or sleek integration pieces, the results are undetectable.

Hair extensions have become a popular way to give you exactly what you want as far as your hair style and look goes. There are several reasons for getting hair extensions, and many of the most common reasons are listed below:

  • To give thin/fine hair more volume
  • For a look of full hair like many of the women in Hollywood
  • To make hair longer after getting a regretted short cut
  • Making yourself feel better after a medical issue that took a toll on your hair

No matter what your reason for wanting hair extensions, they can really boost your self-esteem and self-image. And what women doesn’t want to get the look that the stars sport all the time? The best part about using these things is that they are totally safe. They give you a natural option of beauty enhancement that cannot be gotten any other way.

Hair extensions provide you with more length, volume, and texture. They also help with high and low lights in a fast and easy way that does not involve adding chemicals to your natural hair.

Placing Hair Extensions

It is a mystery to some people how hair extensions are applied. This is how it works; a small attachment is put about one quarter inch from your scalp. Either synthetic or human hair that matches your natural color is blended into your hair. It does not have to match completely as some women choose to go with highlighted extensions for an even different look.

The Importance of Hair Extensions

Getting hair extensions is a big commitment as well as a big investment moneywise. This is why it is vital that you go with a salon that uses the best possible methods so as not to be disappointed with the results. The proper hair must be used and the professional stylist has got to be used so no mistakes are made. Just like with a medical procedure, you should always get second (or even third) opinions on what is best for your hair. They should only be put in by a professional who have done this type of procedure before and feels comfortable doing it. Putting in hair extensions properly takes a lot of skill so you should use someone that has heavy experience in this area. The more experience the stylist has the better techniques they have up their sleeves!

In the end, hair extensions were once something that was worn by celebrities all the time and simply coveted by us regular folks! Since they have become such a Hollywood legend over the past years, more and more salons have taken it upon themselves to become trained in this fine art. If you are thinking about getting them added to your hair, I say go for it! They add so much to your look and you will not likely be disappointed!

Q. Do tape hair extensions last forever?

A. Tape hair extensions unfortunately cannot last forever but will last at least 8-10 weeks. That will depend on how fast your hair grows, lifestyle, heat exposure, etc., but the good news is that the hair can be reused up to 3 times.

Q. Are custom colors available?

A. Of course, as there are various colors available that can be mixed together and create many different color combinations.

Q. Straighten, wave or simply blow dry! Can I do all this to my hair extensions?

A. Tape hair extensions are totally fine when subjected to all of the above. However, when exposed to extensive styling heat the condition of the hair will decrease so you might need to order new hair sooner than expected. Caution: Direct heat on the bonds/ tape tabs should be avoided in order to not compromise the longevity of the extensions.

Q. Is it ok to use any type of products in the hair?

A.  Your new hair can be treated just as your normal hair. Sulfate free shampoo are great to prevent the extension hair color from fading. Conditioners are fine for the mid shaft and ends but should be avoided near the bonds. Products containing alcohol and essential oils should be avoided as well near or around the bonds.

Q.  Can I color my roots while the extensions are still in the hair?

Absolutely, however please refer to an experienced hair colorist to ensure the integrity of the bonds while retouching you hair color.
