Extensions f.a.q's

Are the extensions real hair?

Yes. All of our hair is 100% human remy hair. Remy means that all the cuticles are laying down in the same direction. We use different brands depending on the method of Hair extensions and demand. 

How long do extensions last?

With proper care and maintenance, your extension installation can last 6-10 weeks. The hair itself can last 9 months- 1 year.

Do I need special products for my extensions?

It’s best to use sulphate and paraben-free shampoos and conditioners. Leave-in conditioners are great for combing your extensions. We carry Brazilian Blowout and Electric  products and recommend The Electric hydrate shampoo and conditioner as well as Electrics P4 spray for detangling. 

I have thin hair. Are extensions good for me?

Yes! Extensions are a great way to get instant fuller hair. And with little tension on the hair, it is perfectly safe and non-damaging to your own hair. In fact, many clients have been able to grow their real hair in the time they had their extensions!

Can I get my hair colored and get extensions installed on the same day?

Yes. We always color match your extensions on your initial visit to ensure the perfect blend. Touch up appointments may or may not require color touch ups as well.

How much do extensions cost?

Extension prices vary between $400-900 depending on method, length, color, and thickness. Your initial price includes the hair, install, cutting and blending. Move-ups range between $100-$500.
