Anya before and after Great LengthsThe Different Types of Extensions We Do

At Citrus Hair Salon, we specialize in three different types of hair extensions. Below is a description of each, as well as a price range. The price is determined by the type of extensions, the length and thickness of your own hair and how much hair you need based on your desired result. For adding highlights or some thickness the price will be on the lower end of the scale, while adding length will be more since more hair is needed as well as a longer installation time.

Great Lengths Human Hair Fusion Extensions
average price range: $400-$1800
approximate maintenance schedule: every 3-5 months
pre-bonded-extensions

Great Lengths are known as the “cadillac” of hair extensions. The hair is ethically sourced from temples in India. The genetic origin and basic structure of Indian hair is very similar to European hair. It is of exceptional quality because Indian women rarely go to salons for chemical treatments of any kind. It is 100% human hair, remiss (root to tip), with no silicon on it, which means that the hair has no artificial shine and is tangle-free.

Great Lengths uses a strand-by-strand bonding method to apply extensions, which leaves them nearly undetectable and does not damage or strain your natural hair. The bonds are 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 very natural. You cannot reuse Great Lengths hair, so it needs to be repurchased for every re-installation.

Pluses:

  • They last longer than any other type of hair extensions
  • You do not need to get them tightened or redone while you have them in
  • The extension colors do not fade (with the exception of pastel shades)
  • Best for maintaining the quality of your hair
  • Extensions look just as good the day you take them out as the day you put them in
  • Minimal maintenance

Our Guarantee: We guarantee Great Lengths extensions for  3 months when all
home care instructions are followed and you come in for a complimentary maintenance appointment
within 6-8 weeks after installation.

Tape-in Human Hair Extensions
average price range: $300-$900
satin prom dressesapproximate maintenance schedule: every 6-8 weeks
re-installation: $150
removal and re-taping $50/hr.

Our tape hair extensions are made from 100% Indian Remy Human Hair. These tape hair extensions are wefts of hair set into a clear base approx 1/5 inches wide which are then attached to an extra-strong durable double-sided invisible adhesive tape. The application process is done by sandwiching small sections of hair between the tape wefts. Tape Hair Extensions should be maintained every 6-8 weeks. When correct maintenance and care procedures are followed, the hair can be reused 3- 5 times by getting them re-taped and re-applied by a professional.

 You have less versatility as far as styling because the wefts are wider than keratin bonded extensions, but they do look very natural and they lay flat…so no bulkiness at all.

Pluses:

  • hair can be reused, so there is only the service cost to have them reattached
  • they are faster to install
  • cost effective compared to other methods

Our Guarantee: We guarantee tape-in extensions for 2 months when all home care instructions are followed and you come in for a complimentary maintenance appointment within 6 weeks after installation.

Neo Human Hair Extensions
average price range: $400-$1000
maintenance schedule: every 6-12 weeksmicro bead extensions at Citrus Hair Salon Vancouver

Patented in Canada, this system uses 100% human remy hair and comes in straight or curly. These extensions are attached in small sections (strand by strand) by using a ring with a double loop interlocking system…so no keratin, glues or any adhesive at all. The looping method helps the hair to not shift or slide. The ring used is made of zinc, due to its hypo-allergenic qualities, and aluminum, which will not heat up when styling with hot tools such as blow dryers, curling or flat irons.

Neo extensions can be refitted and, if properly cared for, can last 6-8 months. They are maintained by having them retightened when they grow out. If any slip out, your technician can easily put them back in. The extensionist uses a tool which loosens the ring, and then slides it back up toward the scalp. You don’t need to take them out!

You can decide when to get them retightened, but it’s recommended never to leave them in too long as the ring starts getting tangled when it dangles too far away from the scalp. Also, the natural hair weakens as it grows out due to normal hair loss that occurs, which means the strand of hair the ring attaches to becomes smaller.

Neo extensions are not recommended for fine, thin hair.

Pluses:

  • you can easily color your hair with the extensions in as the ring does not stain or ruin
  • there is no adhesive used, just the loop and ring
  • easy to readjust
  • easy re-installation
  • hair can be reused
  • very fast, easy removal

Our Guarantee: We guarantee micro-bead extensions for 3 months when all home care instructions are followed and you come in for a complimentary maintenance appointment within 6-8 weeks after installation.

**For any hair extensions, it is recommended to never leave them in too long and always follow the care instructions and recommended maintenance times.
