How much do hair extensions cost?
How long does the hair extension process usually take?
Do I need to pay any maintenance costs?
Maintenance for your hair extensions is crucial. If taken care of properly, human hair extensions can last for up to a year (though usually not for much longer than five months), whereas synthetic hair extensions typically last for about one to three months. During maintenance visits, a salon professional will either replace any extensions that may have fallen out or completely remove the extensions to accomodate for new hair growth, depending on what is necessary. You may also need a hair cut to help more realistically blend in your extensions with your current style.
Does it hurt to get hair extensions?
No! Some people have complained of getting minor headaches when switching over from a very short to a very long style, possibly due to the extra weight of the new extensions. The extension process, however, is totally pain-free
Will I need to use special hair care products for my extensions? What hair appliances can I use?
The hair care professional who applies your extensions will inform you about what products are best for optimum maintenance of your hair extensions. Many salons use human hair extensions, which should be safe for most heating hair appliances. Your stylist will advise you in how to use curling irons, etc. so as not to damage or displace your extensions.
Is there anything special I can to do to keep my hair extensions looking their best?
After your hair extension is complete, your stylist will let you know the standard protocol for optimum maintenance of your extensions. Generally, this includes wearing a cap while swimming and blow-drying your hair after showering or otherwise getting it wet. Also, braiding your hair before going to bed may help you to keep your extensions detangled.
Is it possible to still color or perm my hair with extensions in?
You will, in most cases, be able to dye your roots with extensions attached. An all-over color change or perm will most likely not be possible. In most cases, it is best to have the extensions removed if you are planning a dramatic style change
