Let's Talk Extensions





You have questions, we have answers



Are you going back and forth, trying to decided if you should dive in and get hair extensions? We know you may have some questions, so we’ve decided to answer the most commonly asked extension questions we receive to give you a little bit of insight! Keep reading!





HOW DO I KNOW MY EXTENSION TECHNICIAN IS GOOD?


Now this is a hard one. Not all extension technicians are created equal, so you really need to do your homework. Extensionists should be licensed stylists. Since there are many methods of applying hair extensions (and many types of hair extensions) it’s to your advantage to find a salon that offers several different methods, and not just one. Also, the extensionist should be able to show you certificates received from classes taken for each method. Ask for a photos and see if you can’t chat with a few clients who have extensions of the type and method recommended to you.


How many people should they have done extensions on before being considered experienced enough to be able to perform this service? Experts say a good answer is somewhere near thirty at minimum. A really experienced extension technician will have hundreds under their belt.


If you'd like to speak to one of our extension pros, Deidre, Raana, Kellie, or Anya will be happy to help you!


HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?


Each look is custom and so it will vary greatly. The price can range from a few hundred to over fifteen hundred. It will depend on the type of extensions you are having done, whether you want the extensions for length, volume or both and how much hair you need depending on the thickness of your own hair and the desired result. The consult is necessary to give you options and costs for different solutions. As a rule of thumb, If you have thick hair or short hair you will need a larger amount of extension hair. If you do not put enough in, the hair will look too thin on the bottom and will not blend as well, especially with shorter hair. Differences in price are also directly related to quality/type of hair and method of attachment.


HOW MUCH HAIR DO I NEED TO PUT IN?


The amount you need will depend on how thick your own hair is, what length it is and how long you want it to be. Great Lengths hair comes in “bundles”, for example, and it can take anywhere from 3 to 6 bundles, or sometimes more, to add length.


CAN I HAVE EXTENSIONS DONE JUST TO ADD THICKNESS?


Yes! Many people have extensions put in to add fullness to hair that is thin and fine. It can really add fullness to the hair and make styling easier. If the hair is too thin, however, it can be difficult to blend the extension hair in properly. A consultation will determine what your options are. The cost of filling the hair in is much less than having it done 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. 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!
