Hair Extensions

Everything you need to know about hair extensions.

  1. There are many different types of hair extensions. Wefts, Tape-in, K-tip, and I-Tip extensions are all great options! With so many options, you’re bound to find something that looks great on you and complements your lifestyle. It's best to schedule a consultation to see what the best fit is for your hair and to give you an accurate quote on cost.... as a ballpark estimate isn't something that we are able to give.

  2. You get what you pay for. Good hair extensions aren’t cheap, and cheap hair extensions aren’t good. If you go with high-quality hair extensions and have a hairstylist install them correctly they should last up to six-eight weeks between maintenance visits. Well-maintained extensions can be worn for up to a year!

  3. Extensions require a bit of extra care and attention. You’ll need to factor in some extra time to wash, dry, and style your new hair. Be sure to follow all of your stylists at home care!

  4. Good hair extensions look like the real thing! Quality hair extensions blend seamlessly into your own hair. Most people won’t know the difference, except that your hair has suddenly grown—basically overnight! 

  5. Hair extensions aren’t just for adding length. Half of the people who get hair extensions don’t choose to add length—they’re after volume. Adding some strategic extensions that are about as long as your hair already will allow your hair to appear fuller and healthier. Extension enthusiasts report that that their extensions make them look younger, too!

  6. Hair extensions should be comfortable. Sure, you’ll notice that you have quite a bit more hair after your get extensions, but that should really be the main difference. If you experience any pain or discomfort, head back to your stylist to have your extensions repositioned. With proper maintenance, like thorough routine washing (make sure to rinse well so that soap doesn’t get trapped between) and tying your hair up at night, extensions won’t cause itching or pain. 

  7. Good hair extensions won’t damage your natural hair. Having a professional stylist apply your extensions and opting for a premium product won’t damage your hair at all. In fact, extensions should ultimately protect your natural hair and certainly improve its appearance. However, choosing inferior products, or having extensions applied by an inexperienced hairstylist, are surefire ways to ruin your hair, so do your research!

  8. Extensions can be good for your hair. If you decide to add length and choose high-quality, carefully-applied extensions, you can save your natural hair from damage. They’ll spare your ends—especially if you use a lot of heat tools or are prone to breakage or split ends—from too much manipulation and keep them healthy.

  9. Hair extensions usually require different hair products. As expected, washing hair that isn’t your own will likely require that you invest in a new haircare regimen. You may have to buy some extra moisturizing products as the extensions won’t benefit from the natural oils on your scalp like your own hair generally does. A gentle mixed bristle brush may help keep tangles at bay and add luster, too. Finally, since you won’t be conditioning near where the hair extensions are bonded to your own hair, you might need to incorporate a different leave-in conditioner. Your best bet will be one designed to work with hair extensions without compromising the installation.  

Hair Extension After Care

Oooooh, girl you have fresh new hair!!


Now what? We need to go over how to care for your extensions in your day-to-day life. Please take the time to review these instructions carefully. Trust me, your extensions will thank you later.


• Always brush hair thoroughly with a Wet Brush BEFORE washing.

• Use a recommended sulfate free shampoo and conditioner to prolong your color and extensions.

• Separate top row and top of your hair BEFORE you get in the shower. Wash bottom row, rinse, then let the top down and wash & condition.

• Be sure all product is rinsed away.

• Use a leave in conditioner before you brush out your hair with the Wet Brush.

•Again, separate your rows and brush individually.

• When brushing wet hair, start from your ends and work your way up. Hold the hair in one hand (pinched in a ponytail) and brush down.

• I recommend using a deep conditioning treatment least once per week to maintain the extensions. The Olaplex #8 is my favorite!


• Rough dry your hair 80% of the way (no tugging at the extensions with a round brush or comb, just use your hands/fingers).

• Use a round brush and a small amount of tension to smooth your hair and the extension hair the last few minutes to finish the blow-dry.

• DO NOT LET YOUR HAIR AIRDRY FULLY. Always blow-dry to finish & seal down the cuticle.

• A Microfiber hair wrap/turban helps soak up water from your extensions.

• When curling your extensions, run the hair through the curling iron lightly to smooth the hair once or twice before placing curls. This will give your extensions a more polished look, close the cuticle, and prolong the extension hair.


• Brush your hair thoroughly with Wet Brush before bed.

•Place in a loose ponytail or braid to ensure there is no tension on your scalp.

• Sleep on a silk pillowcase.


• You can live a normal active lifestyle with your Extensions, just treat the extensions & your scalp with some gentleness to keep them looking their best- the longest.

• After a few washes the extension hair will start to expand, and take on a more realistic hair texture. They will feel more like your own hair.

• AVOID chlorine, or letting your hair flow freely like a mermaid while submerged in water. This can cause extreme damage.

We hope you're as OBSESSED with your new Extensions as we are! If you have questions or concerns please don't hesitate to reach out!
