All potential hair extension clients must go through a complimentary consultation. Leslie will discuss the technique options best for the client’s hair type, accurate color matching, and price discussion. Extensions are used to either thicken the client’s natural hair style, add length to the client’s natural hair, or add temporary colored pieces when the natural hair may not be able to handle the chemical service. Leslie only works with 100% Natural Remy hair and the extension companies that promise that.
Remember with all extension applications…More hair = more time.
I-Tip Method: a small, clean section of the natural hair is threaded thru a loc or bead, then an individual i-tip hair extension is inserted into the loc, pliers are then carefully used to clamp the loc,, and the natural hair is extended. Extensions are carefully applied in rows throughout the head shape. This method it the best for normal hair textures, for curly/wavy hair, or for those wanting very long extensions. These extensions can be reused and “moved up” during the maintenance appointment, average time between maintenance is between 5-7 weeks. Any extensions that may have slipped out can also be reapplied. Each full head of extensions can last on average 6 months with proper care.
Tape-in Method: utilizing the natural curves of the skull, a clean sliced section is used to apply a 2” wide extension with an adhesive (“tape) at the top of clean, natural hair. Leaving a small section of natural hair adhered to the extension, another 2” extension is applied, “sandwiching” the natural hair in between. The adhesive forma a chemical bond and the client’s natural hair easily holds the taped pieces during the natural hair grow out. This method is the best for fine hair or for those that want a thicker feel without a lot of length. These extensions can be reused with proper maintenance. A solvent is used to release the bond and each piece is cleaned and re-taped for the reapplication. Fall out or slippage is rare with this technique. Each full head of tape-in extensions can last on average 6 months with proper care.
