There are three main types of hair extensions that we prefer to discuss. Each type has both its advantages and its negative aspects, allowing you to choose the one with the best balance for your hair type and colour. Our talented staff can take a look at your natural hair, listen to the ideas you have about style and volume, and when you’re ready direct you toward the type of hair extensions that will benefit you the most.
Weave Hair Extensions
Best suited to those with medium to thick hair. Natural hair is braided, and then weaves are added with a needle and cotton threaded through the natural braid. These extensions are available in a variety of colours and lengths, as well as different styles, i.e. wavy or straight. These extensions are usually only of average quality. Also, their method of installation can be painful if the braids are too tight and cause strain on your scalp.
Tape Hair Extensions
Are quick to apply and semi-permanent. This type of extension can last up to 12 weeks and are easy to care for, as you care for them along with your natural hair. One of the downsides is a difficulty in hiding where they are inserted into your hair. This makes it more of a challenge to do up dos and ponytails. Also, they are usually not the best quality of hair, so they tend to start showing more wear quickly compared to other extensions with better quality hair.
Clip-in Hair Extensions
Offer a great variety in colour, length and thickness. They are a temporary installation and can be removed and re-installed easily. The clips tend to be hardy and able to withstand stress, yet they can be hidden easily among your natural hair. These clip-in extensions are usually high-quality hair and can be dyed to match different hair colours, so they last longer. Some say they have used the same set of extensions for as long as a year with the same quality from start to finish. More info on the types available.
Choosing the right type of hair extension means your investment will last and be well worth the time you spent to have the extensions put in. It also means you can have an ideal match to your hair colour in the hair quality you want for your extensions.
