Tape In Hair Extensions
The Clients’ hair is attached to 1 1/2 inch or less ultra thin, tape like strips of hair. This hair extension method can add length, volume, and fill out broken sections or shorter sides. In addition to all natural colors – ombre, rooted colors, and color melting are available which allows for an unlimited range of color effects. It works well on most fine hair as removal does not break down the clients’ own hair. Tape in hair extensions can last 6-10 weeks between tightening, are lightweight, and can rarely be seen or felt. The hair is top quality and can be reused for 6 months with proper maintenance. Not all Tape In hair extensions are universally the same. I had to try several kinds to find one that is good quality hair, stays in, and is easy to remove without breaking the clients’ own hair.
Hand tied Sew in/Invisi-Link Wefts
This hair extension method utilizes single hand-tied strips of wefted hair that are attached with small metal rings that cannot be seen. The attachments are extremely flat. It works well on shorter length hair (4-6 inches) to achieve a well blended integration for length. It also works great on very fine hair without breaking it down. Depending on hair texture, this method lasts 5-8 weeks. The hair can be re-used 6 months when properly maintained.
Removable Extensions – HairWire halo Extensions TM
I also make removable hair extensions using wefted hair with clips or an invisible wire. This hair extension method is also visually undetectable and is great for client’s who travel extensively, live out-of-town, or just don’t want to be bothered with maintenance. Wefted hair extensions can be alternated between a sew in or removable application any time.
This hair extension method can be “lifesaving” on extremely damaged hair so you can grow out your own hair to be healthy without creating any further damage. There are many clients who have hair that has thinned out on the top that utilize this method. By filling out the sides and ends, this method makes it appear that the entire head of hair is thicker. It is also fabulous for filling out thin, stringy ends!
For out of town clients – once you have your first HairWire Halo Hair Extension – we can keep your measurements and hair color sample for future pieces without having to come back to the salon. If you change your hair color, you can simply send a new hair color sample.
For first time out of town clients – please plan 2 -3 weeks in advance. This way we can allow ample time to get your extension made while you’re in New York.
Unlike pre-made packaged clip-on’s or other halo extensions, the hair is high quality. It is also custom blended to match perfect, sized to fit Your head and designed to meet your specific hair needs exactly. The hair will not shed extensively and is more comfortable than pre-made wire extensions.
Hair weaving is a traditional hair extensions methods and many times works best on thick hair. I use a weave pole technique as there is less risk of damage, the track is flat – not bulky, and not easily detectable like traditional weaves. The hair comes in a “weft” form and can be made into as many pieces as necessary. Each piece is custom blended to the density and color needed. A “track” is formed by weaving a bond of small sections of your hair inter-twining with numerical combinations of thread to form a lock based system at the roots of your hair. The hair wefts are then attached to the track. Most clients require only 1 to 3 tracks to achieve their desired result. The weaving process is usually completed in 2-4 hours depending on the amount of hair attached. Hair weaving generally lasts 5-8 weeks before a re-tightening is needed.
What are Hair Extensions?
Hair extensions are a creation of several innovative techniques that may be used separately or in combination with each other to add length and fullness to your existing hair. I use hair extension methods that insure no or minimal damage to the client’s own hair when properly maintained. Quality and care of the hair extension and the client’s hair is a number one priority.
