Hair extensions information
What types of hair extensions are there?
There are two types of hair extensions - 100% human hair, or synthetic hair. Synthetic hair extensions are lab-produced, while natural hair extensions are grown and cut-off from humans. The advantage of natural hair extensions is the realistic look it creates, but can be more expensive because a human had maintained, cut, and sold their hair. Synthetic hair, on the other hand, does not look as natural, but usually costs less. Where ease of attaching the extensions is concerned, synthetic hair is easier because clip-in varieties are widely available.
What kind of natural hair is used as hair extensions?
We only use hair extensions made out of 100% virgin human hair. Virgin human hair refers to hair that has intact hair cuticles, and the hair is bundled in a way that the cuticles lie in the same direction, allowing the hair extensions to be stronger, healthier, and tangle-free.

How long should my hair be to use hair extensions?

I recently had my hair cut into a graduated bob. Can you extend its length?
Yes, you can still extend your hair length even with graduated bob. However, if you don a ponytail, the short hair underneath the hair extension will be obvious as the bonds will not be able to cover the bottom layer of the graduated bob, unlike normal hairstyles. On the other hand, you can wear a loose tail since the hair drops downwards, covering the bottom area. Other than that, the hair extensions will look natural.
I have fine hair. Will the use of hair extensions damage my hair?
With proper application, having fine hair will not be a problem. If you have very fine hair, fewer hair extensions will be used to prevent damage. In fact, a wider section of your hair will be used for each strip of hair extensions. Plus, each strip of normal-sized hair extension will be split into half to relief the pressure off your own hair.
If I wear a ponytail, will the bonds be noticeable?
When the hair extensions are fitted, each layer is managed so that the lowest layer is free of hair extensions. Furthermore, your hair from the sides and bottom will cover the bonds, so you can wear your ponytail worry-free.
