Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a full head of extensions and half a head?

Most clients go for a full head of extensions as you get the maximum fullness and thickness, and they blend completely with your own hair. A full head of extensions is suitable for most hair types, although if your hair is very thin or fine the extensions may be visible higher up so a half or three quarter head would be more suitable. Half a head of extensions is mainly to add thickness without adding much length, so if a client already has fairly long hair they may want to just make it a bit thicker.

How long does it take to fit the extensions?

For the individual strand methods on average it takes a maximum of three hours to fit a full head, around two to two and half hours to fit a three quarter head, and an hour and a half to fit half a head of extensions. For the London Road weave and micro weft extensions it takes around one to one and half hours.

Can I still tie my hair up with extensions in?

Yes, it is still possible to tie your hair up with extensions in as they are applied away from the parting and away from your hair line. It is not recommended to tie them very tightly, or wear them in a very high ponytail as the bonds / rings may become visible. The London Road weave is the best method if you plan on wearing your hair up often, as it is only applied to a few rows.

Can I go on holiday with extensions in?

Extensions are great for holidays as you can just wake up with long flowing hair and leave it naturally wavy without having to straighten or blow-dry it. It is recommended that you put your hair into a loose plait and coat it in conditioner whilst sunbathing and swimming. This way the hair will be protected from heat, chlorine and sun damage, and will stay in good condition.
