Hair Extenstions

Every woman wants hair that looks like it’s been styled by a salon professional.

But if your hectic schedule won’t allow for a daily visit to the salon or like me you’d prefer an extra twenty minutes in bed instead of each morning grappling with the hair tongs desperately trying to make your limp hair look voluminous then hair extensions might be the solution you’ve been looking for. You can trust me when it comes to making your hair look epic instead of eeew. I’m here so you can make the most of your busy mornings!

I use one hair extensions technique only because I believe it is the absolute best method when it comes to client satisfaction and health of the natural hair. The method I use is the smallest and most undetectable non-glue hair extension technique available, which combines strands of natural hair with the extension hair using tiny copper rings called micro locks.

Why Choose Micro Lock Extensions?

  • No glue, adhesive or keratin bonds involved so there is no excessive force applied during removal and therefore no damage
  • Micro lock extensions with high quality Europen or Russian hair will last three months before requiring maintenance (tightening) due to hair growth, at which point, unlike glued-in extensions 100% of the extension hair can be reused
  • Can be worn back-to- back so you never have to ever be without your extensions

It is really important that the micro locks are not visible at any time, with any style under any conditions. To ensure that the extensions remain undetectable and blend seamless with the natural hair I often uses 3 different sizes of micro rings.

Tiny rings, which mimic the size of keratin bonds, around the perimeter, small ones on the sides and standard sized rings in the back. In using 3 different size rings the extensions remain invisible and provide better weight distribution and comfort.

What Hair Do You Use?

A lot of hair technicians say that they use Russian and European hair for their hair extensions but they don’t. The reason for this is simple – Russian and European hair is not only more expensive it is also more difficult to source while Indian hair is readily available in large quantities and extremely cheap to buy.

Why Choose European Or Russian Virgin Hair Over Indian Hair?

While Indian hair is finer and provides a good match for a Western women’s hair it is only available naturally in dark colours. It is also collected in such large quantities during the  initial sourcing process the hair gets very tangled.

To fix the problem of tangling the hair is processed using acid treatments to strip the cuticle layer. Then to get the dark hair light the hair has to undergo a further bleaching process.

The hair is then coated with silicone, which gives it an artificial healthy look. In the beginning the hair is shiny and beautiful, but after a month of wear the silicone layer starts to wash away leaving the hair fragile with a dull matt appearance.

This is one of the reasons why Indian hair is often paired with keratin bonds, an attachment technique where the hair cannot be reused and must be replaced every 8-10 weeks, as hair quality becomes less important when it has a shorter lifespan.

The hair I use mimics a Weston appearance perfectly but does not loose its texture, go dry, dull or tangle.

How Do You Ensure An Exact Colour Match?

With so many different hair colours, textures and lengths we all wear today the optimal colour and texture blend is almost always achieved by combining hair from several different shades of ponytails. In doing this, I can ensure that there is no stringy colour separation as often happens when using pre-bonded hair extensions that come in a single texture and a solid colour.

During the consultation process you are invited to view the European and Russian hair I have in stock. Once your hair has been colour matched your ponytails are ordered in, on receipt of delivery I personally bond the hair into tiny strands making sure the extension hair will perfectly match your natural hair ready to fit in advance.

PLEASE NOTE: Prices vary according to personal requirements, natural hair type, length, density. An accurate quotation can only be given after an initial consultation. The prices listed above are an approximate guide on cost. I supply lengths starting from 8” – 30”.

All orders are bespoke, white blonde and grey tones are also more expensive.

Any additional hair required for a reapplication will incur an additional charge and would be discussed before your maintenance appointment.

For maintenance appointments, 100% of the extension hair can be re-used. With correct after care the hair will last up to 12 months. The cost of maintenance is charged at £50.00 per hour and the appointment typically takes anywhere between 2 – 4 hrs. Maintaining your micro lock extensions could not be easier. With micro lock extensions, you can wash, blow dry and style your hair as you normally would. Removal is very quick and easy. The micro lock slides off the hair, leaving it in perfectly good condition. iI recommend clients see me for for maintenance every 6 – 8 weeks to ensure your hair stays in healthy condition.
