Frequently Asked Questions
When deciding who you want to trust your hair to you should be geared up with the right questions when you're consulting on the phone or in person to really know what to expect, I am very confident in my abilities and really want you to feel that confidence and having the knowledge with information needed and a better understanding so, I've made a list of the most important questions to make your decision making as easy as 1, 2, 3...
Do I need to make an appointment?YES! This is the first step in getting hair extensions to decide if this service is best for you and to answer your questions. The consultation usually lasts between 20-30 minutes. We go over hair length, color, texture, techniques, proper care, pricing, and I give you as much time as you need. It is very Important that your hair color (if you color your hair) has been touched up prior to your consultation so that the extensions match your hair perfectly!
How long does it take to order the hair?It only takes about 2-3 days. In some cases I can get the hair the next day!
How long does the attachment take?The time varies depending on the desired look. It can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours.
Why do hair extensions cost so much?Hair extensions are a time-intensive, tedious service, and the supplies needed for QUALITY are expensive.
Why are you more affordable?
- I charge you the same wholesale prices I get as a certified extensionist! (most all salons double the price of the hair)
- I don't pay out commissions to a salon owner
- I believe in being fair! (I treat my clients how I would want to be treated)
What type of hair do you use?Choosing the right hair is very important thats why I use 100% human Remy Hair, which is hand picked so that each cuticle is aligned up and down to ensure that it is tangle free. The direction of the cuticle is maintained. Because of the method of collection this type of hair is in short supply and is quite expensive. Remy hair has a cool silky feeling when you touch it. It has the most universal look, feel and integrity.
Can I treat my hair the same as before?Definately! The correct brushes, cleansing and styling products will be recommended. Some additional care is required to get the most out of the application, which is explained during the consultation.
Can I blow dry and curl the hair?Yes – with 100% human hair you can use straightening irons, curling irons, rollers, or anything you normally use to style your hair.
Do hair extensions look natural?Without Exception!! Using a color ring I custom color blend the extension hair to match your hair exactly along with a custom blending extension cut. Only you will know you have them in!
Do hair extensions damage my hair?If you closely follow the maintenance instructions there should be very little to no damage.
What is the maintenance?You will be given post care instruction sheet to take home once we have completed the application of your extensions.
How often should I wash the hair?If you want it to last as long as it can you should wash it only 2-3 times a week. Not everyday. A dry shampoo is recommended for use between washes to absorbe any excess oil and make your hair look clean again without actually washing it.
Can I go swimming in a pool or the ocean?Yes! Just make sure to put your hair in a low pony tail and try to bring a leave in conditioner/detangler with you.
Is there any pain or discomfort with hair extensions?Usually the first night is a little uncomfortable, almost like you have had your hair in a tight pony tail all day. After the first night though you won't even notice they are there.
How long do they last?The choice is 100% up to you but it depends on how well you take care of the hair, typically though it can last 9 months to 1 year. I recommend taking them out around 3-4 months due to regrowth.
How long does my hair need to be?It is recommended that your hair be at least 4 inches for thickening or volume and 4-5 inches for a full lengthening.
How soon can I get an appointment?I can get you in as soon as possible for the consultatio and within a few days to a week we can do the attachment, and you can have the hair you have always dreamed of!
