You’re unique—as should be your extensions. With completely customizable applications, we provide the highest quality hair extensions that won’t damage your hair, giving you a gorgeous look that looks natural and lasts you in-between salon visits.
The beaded weave is a type of track style of extension that uses hand-tied wefts to create the most natural look of any hair extension style. This method is great for those wanting longer hair from a shorter length, i.e. a bob to chest-length hair.
This technique requires no glue, adhesives, or tape, creating a damage-free application. It is fast to install, easy to maintain, and is the most comfortable and versatile method for a variety of hair styles and lifestyles. The application is especially great for those with thinning hair around their hairline.
Using medical-grade adhesive on small wefts of hair, tape-in extensions are great for blending short to long hair and for fine-haired clients. This technique is quick to apply and requires only moderate maintenance. A great, quick add-on service for pops of color or volume.
K-Tip extensions are installed using a heating element which safely bonds the Keratin Tips onto your own hair. This Keratin Tip is partially made of the same naturally occurring protein found in your hair.
A silicone additive on the K-tip creates a protective coating for your natural hair strands. The K-tips are bonded close to the roots of the hair, and your stylist will ensure enough space to allow free movement of your hair, which maintains a natural layered texture and feel.
Washing and conditioning should always be done with professional hair care products your stylist recommends. This is your first line of defense against damage and tangles.
BE SURE TO FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES WHEN WASHING YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS:
Be sure to brush before showering to ensure all the tangles are out. Always try to dry the roots of your hair extensions every time you wash. No need to wash every day, 2-3 times a week is plenty, and dry shampoo is a girl’s best friend. When you do wash, don’t be afraid of the roots. You won’t pull them out we promise, wash all over your scalp to the ends. When conditioning, ALWAYS only apply conditioner from the ponytail down. You should always keep conditioner and oils away from the point of attachment for any extension method.
BLOWDRYING AND STYLING ARE FINE AND CAN BE DONE JUST LIKE YOUR NATURAL HAIR. JUST BE SURE TO DO THESE THINGS TO KEEP DAMAGE AT BAY:
Always use a blow dry heat protecting spray and oil on the extensions BEFORE drying. Try not to use heat on the extensions more than 3-4 times a week. Always apply oil every day even when dry. Be sure to use a wet brush when brushing the extensions as to not snag the root.
SLEEPING IS A QUESTION WE GET A LOT ABOUT HAIR EXTENSIONS:
Always wear it in a braid, pony, or bun. You will thank us later when you aren’t ripping through tangles in the morning. Try a satin pillowcase if your natural hair tangles easily.
Working out is nothing to worry about, just try not to wear tight headbands and ponytails for extended periods of time.
PLEASE FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS EXACTLY. CHLORINE AND SALT WATER CAN BE VERY DAMAGING TO EXTENSIONS OF ALL KINDS.
NEVER, EVER let your extensions flow freely or unbound in any way in chlorine or salt water. This will result in a tangled mess. If you prefer braided looks beach-side/poolside, be sure to take them out and revert to your old friend, the ponytail, before flipping your fins. Braided extensions can swell when submerged and create tangles.
WHEN YOU ARE GOING TO BE IN POOLS OR AT BEACHES HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE EASY BUT JUST REQUIRE A BIT OF PREP:
Wet hair in a shower or with clean fresh water.
Apply conditioner and leave in.
Apply oil from ears down.
Keep hair in a low or high ponytail.
Shampoo and condition like normal and follow styling tips from above.
