How long have you done hair extensions?
What systems do you use? If the salon only offers one system, and your natural hair is very fine, check around and do your homework. Check out the other systems, ‘KEEP AWAY FROM GLUE OR SEWN IN EXTENSIONS’. These will damage your hair.
Is my hair long enough? Generally as a rule your hair should be at least 3inches long, if your hair is very thick, then possibly a bit longer.
Have you worn hair extensions- to the stylist?
Ask to see the different types of hair, it should be matched not just in shade but also in texture, e.g. if you have tight natural frizzy hair, you definitely don’t want straight textured hair in. (Nightmare)
When it comes to matching shades, we always ask the client if there are any other tones i.e highlights/ lowlights, that she would like added in, but the base of the hair should be matched exactly, again this is down to the expertise and experience of the hair technician.
We would normally- recommend at the consultation placing 2 or 3 extensions into the client’s hair for her to try. This is called a strand test, of which will allow the client to see how it feels in the hair, if your scalp feels sensitive to the bonds, and most importantly whether your hair is strong enough for the extensions test strands will generally be placed near the nape of the neck.
How long can they stay in, and how do I remove them?
The length of the time of the hair extensions can stay in depend on a lot of factors.
The size of the bond
How you have looked after them generally 3-4 months, Great lengths however up to 6 months.
