A great way to use hair extensions is to change a look or update a style. It’s so easy to do, you simply add a few extensions at the front to give length to a bob or insert a flash of colour to liven up a tired look. The beauty of using extensions for colour is that you are not damaging your own hair with harsh chemicals. If you decide you want to change your colour, it’s as easy as moving the extensions or adding a different colour. You no longer have to have colour-corrections which could cost you not only big money but also the health of your hair.
A few extensions are just the thing to create a funky asymetric style. A short style can be lengthened just on one side to feel more feminine. We can add fringes. The possibilities are endless! Don’t just think extensions automatically mean length, instead have some FUN! We encourage you to get creative and look through some magazines for ideas. Copy your favourite celebrity………

Remy hair means that the hair is all cuticle correct, (faces the same way). This is essential to avoid tangling. A lot of extensions on the market look great when you first have them installed. Only Remy hair will stand the test of time. Hair that is not cuticle correct will matt and tangle on the very first wash. You will be constantly brushing it to try to detangle, resulting in strain on your own natural hair. This is what gives extensions a bad name. Just about everyone has heard a bad story about extensions. This is from having cheap non-remy hair installed.
All of our extensions are quality controlled and made from only the softest and silkiest hair – sourced ethically from India or Russia.
Q. Will hair extensions damage my hair?
The methods we choose will not harm your hair. Your experienced extensionist will have a thorough consultation with you to ensure the right type of extension is used in your hair. There are ideal products for fine and course hair alike. The extensions are flexible and blend with your own hair to create a natural overall finish. They should never look like extensions. They should always look natural. Our extensions are easy to apply and just as easy to remove.
Q. How long do the hair extensions last?
We recommend extensions should be replaced every 6 weeks to three months (depending on the type of extension) as the bonds grow down. After removal another set of extensions can be re-applied closer to the roots. Some extensions may be re-used if the hair has been carefully looked after. Depending on the system used to attach the hair, some hair is able to be re-used indefinitely.
Q. What aftercare products should I use?
We have tried and tested a number of shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling products on the market. Some are definitely better for your extensions than others. We will advise you on which products best suit not only your extensions but also your own hair.
Q. How do I look after them?
Be prepared to allow a little extra time each day to look after your extensions but above all enjoy them! When you get home, leave the hair for three days before washing to allow the bonds to set properly.
Q. Can I wash my hair normally?
After your initial three days, you can wash by tipping your head back under the shower. Don’t tip you head forward over a basin as you will end up disturbing the hair too much which may lead to some tangling. Gently massage the scalp. Do not use a scrubbing motion. Always dry the hair and bonds completely. Shampoo immediately after swimming.
Q. What about bedtime?
When going to bed tie your hair in a soft scrunchie or loosely plait to prevent it from tangling. Using the extension loop brush gently work through the hair from the ends up, supporting the bonds and being careful not to tug them. You will need to spend a little extra time to look after your extensions, after all, you want to look after your investment.
