Q: What is Hair Extension?
A: Hair extension is adding hair onto your own hair by means of Strand-By-Strand, Braiding, Weaving, or Bonding. A skilled stylist applies the extensions either in a salon or in the convenience of their own home. Hair extensions can make you look and feel younger and beautiful. With instant long and luscious hair that you wear on a regular basis, you can sleep with it, wash and care for it like your own hair. You can also cut and style the hair to fit your look. Hair extensions are installed so you can wear them in many different hairstyles. You will not be restricted to any one style! You can be as creative as you like! Hair extension makes thin or flat hair full, takes short hair and makes it long.

Q: Who can wear hair extensions?
A: Almost everyone can get hair extensions. Hair extensions are great for people who want to add length, volume or who want have colour in their hair without the long-term commitment or without the damage of using harsh products like bleach. There are, however, certain situations in which you should not opt for hair extensions. Usually your hair extension specialist should inform you if you are not a good candidate for hair extensions during the consultation process. Among some of the reasons, you may be advised against hair extensions, or to postpone your hair extension service include clients who have a hair-related medical condition, clients with severe over-processed hair, if the clients own hair is less than three inches long.

Q: Where does the hair of these extensions come from?
A: My hair extension suppliers source real hair from individuals with long healthy hair and process it to achieve the desired colour. The hair is 100% HUMAN REMY HAIR. The hair is hand cut, double drawn and root point correct.

Q: How long can hair extensions last?
A: With proper care, hair extensions can remain in for about 2 to 4 months. This is because the natural hair grows at a rate of 1/4 to 1/2 inch per month, after approximately 2-4 months, the extensions need to be removed and reapplied.

Q: Will hair extensions hurt, or pull your own hair out?
A: NO. It may feel strange at first and you will know you have something on your head for the first day or two, after that you will not feel that they are there.

Q: After putting in the extensions, can you wear your hair up?
A: YES. The extensions are not applied lower than the base of your scalp (about even with the middle of your ears) and so your hair under this point covers the extensions while you wear your hair up and about an inch of your own hair is left around the edge to hide the bonds when wearing your hair up. However, some extension wearers want these areas covered with extensions and therefore cannot wear their hair up. This is the individual’s choice.

Q: Will hair extensions damage my hair? 
A: Will it? I am not sure, but can it? The answer is yes. I know everyone knows of a bad hair extension story. I know I have. For the most part hair extensions are very safe. The integrity of your hair is very important to me and I am proud that my clients do not experience damage. However, realistically it can happen. Damage can occur for two reasons 1) the inexperience of the stylist 2) the client did not listen to the maintenance instructions. If the stylist is new, places them incorrectly too high towards the scalp or too low to the scalp, damage can occur. On the other hand, if you as a client ignore your stylist’s advice like, use the wrong products, forget to sleep with a ponytail, and most important you fail to remove THEM AFTER 3 MONTHS. Then damage can occur.

Q: Will I lose any of my own hair?
A: If you take proper care of your hair you will not lose any, your hair will grow with the extensions. However, a natural shedding occurs. On average, each person loses 50+ strands of hair per day. When you are wearing the extensions, your hair does not naturally shed. The hair is trapped in the bond and cannot release. Therefore, when we remove the hair you see what looks like hair loss. It is NOT. It is the natural shed releasing. It looks scary. Imagine 50 x 2-3 months = 2800-4200 strands of hair all at one time.
