After posting our blogger call, we received a lot of questions about getting extensions – the kinds of extensions we offer and what the maintenance is like!
WHY get extensions?
The most common reason someone wants extensions is because they want longer hair. If your hair just won’t grow past a certain point, even with regularly scheduled haircuts, extensions are the answer!
The second most common reason for getting extensions is for fullness. Whether your hair is short or long, sometimes it’s just not thick enough to show off the body or volume you want!
An amazing use of extensions is for its color. If your blonde can’t get blonde enough without breaking, if you’d like a color that’s impossible for your hair to reach (silver!), or if you simply want a temporary color – adding a lowlight for the fall, or adding a pop of pink for breast cancer awareness – extensions give you the flexibility of having whatever color you want!
CHOOSING your extensions!
Based on the struggle you’re looking to overcome with extensions, we have a solution for you!
HaloCouture extensions offer a weft of hair on an invisible wire to be put on – and removed – at home! That’s right, you can have extensions during the day and then take them out to shower, and throw your hair up in a bun to sleep. This is our most popular option for anyone wanting extra hair for a one-time event such as a wedding or charity gala.
Hairtalk Tape in extensions can add lots of fullness and length, and they’re also the perfect starting place for both your time and money when you’re ready to wear extensions full time!⠀After 6-8 weeks, you’ll be ready to move the extensions up. With proper care, your Hairtalk extensions can be used for 3 move-ups, up to 6 months!
Great Lengths offers extensions with extremely flat bondings which are virtually invisible. These keratin bonds attach small individual wefts to your hair wherever you want to see thickness or length. Great Lengths are our most popular extensions for those with chin and shoulder length hair struggling with fullness. You’ll be ready to remove these keratin bonds after 8-12 weeks with proper care!
Beaded Row and Hand Tied Weft extensions are our most exciting options because they offer the most hair, fewest attachment points, and are the least detectable. The length of the weft is customizable so your stylist has full artistic freedom to bring your dreams of fuller longer hair to life! You’ll move these up every 4 weeks at a short 15 minute appointment; with proper care these wefts can last up to a year!
LIVING IN extensions!
Now that your hair is everything you ever wanted, all you have to do is take care of it! Daily, you’ll brush it more. When you have more hair, it might get tangled! Brushing it twice a day will keep it silky smooth.
To make your morning routines go smoother, sleep with your hair in a loose low ponytail or braid so you won’t have to spend a lot of time de-tangling.
