VALUE-ADDED SERVICES


Food & Beverage Service

During your installation appointment, we want to make sure you’re comfortable the entire time.  You’ll be with us for a few hours, depending on your service, so we don’t want your tummy grumbling. Enjoy our in-house snacks, such as cheese and crackers or hummus and crisps, and beverages such as cappuccino, citrus water or an assortment of teas, available for all of our guests. For longer appointments, as with the fusion extension installations, we will also serve you a gourmet-style meal from one of our local high-end Yaletown restaurants, Wild Tale. All complimentary with your service!

Parking 

Hamilton and Mainland Streets in Yaletown generally have a two hour parking limit, which makes it difficult for longer appointments. Let the front desk know when you arrive if you will be needing your meter topped up at any point, along with a description of your car, where it’s parked and plate number. We will plug your meter for you when needed and just add it to your bill. Please refer to our parking maps to find out where to park around the salon.

Wifi/Phone 

Of course, we have wifi access for all of our guests. Your phone battery low? Ask us for a charger.

Care Package

All of our extension clients will go home with a care package, which includes a high-quality hairbrush and a travel-sized shampoo and conditioner by Kevin Murphy. The care package will also include after-care instructions as a reference guide.

Extensions are Not Just for Length

There are many reasons for getting hair extensions besides adding length. They may be added for highlights or lowlights or to add some vibrant, funky colours when you don’t want to go through the colouring process. The cost can be about the same as it would be for getting the colour done, but it’s faster, lasts longer and won’t damage or change your own colour.  If you need length on your sides–for an angled bob perhaps–then add some extensions just to your sides. Need a little more volume? Add just a few scattered throughout.

Great Lengths Hair Extensions

Anya Great Lengths Hair Extensions

Great Lengths are known as the best 100% natural hair extensions…. “the Rolls Royce of hair extensions.” Great Lengths was voted the Favorite Extension Company by stylists at the Stylists Choice Awards. By the company’s own statement it uses only the finest hair; Indian Temple Hair.

The strand-by-strand bonding method used by Great Lengths to apply extensions leave them nearly undetectable and does not damage or strain your natural hair. Here’s the science behind it: the bond between the extension strand and your own hair is composed of polymer chains whose molecular structures are very similar to that of human hair. This tiny, but incredibly strong bond is activated by a thermal applicator, attaching the strands of extensions to your natural hair without harsh glue or harmful knotting. Because the point of attachment is tiny and close to the root, the extensions blend seamlessly into your own hair for a look that is remarkably natural. It can also be easily removed by an expert without damage to your own hair. This patented attachment of Great Lengths to your own hair in no way compromises the quality of your own hair!

Hair extensions are a great option if you have fine, thin hair, are tired of waiting for your hair to grow, or just want a change. You can simply fill the hair in for thickness, or add luscious length…have the hair you always wanted!
