What Types Of Extensions Are Available? +
We offer halo, clip-in, kerafusion bond, hand-tied, and tape-in extensions at Extension Bar.
A set of wefts which have clips sewn on to the top to quickly be clipped in and out of the hair. They are great for a night out for an instant enhancement.
A weft of hair in the shape of a halo with an invisible clear plastic string connecting the ends. To install, you simply place atop of the crown, gently pull down to adjust, then pull the hair from the crown over the halo creating a seamless thicker and or longer look. There is absolutely no attachment to the natural hair making the halo the most gentle form of extensions protecting the hair for a quick on and off application.
Lasts Between 8-16 Weeks
Individual strands of hair with keratin bonds at the top holding all the hairs together are attached using a fusion tool to soften the bond to mold onto your natural hair. This creates a natural look that moves the same with your hair and feels light as a feather, lasting between 8-16 weeks.
Lasts About 8-12 Weeks
A row of attachments / beads are placed on the natural hair attached in wefts by hand sewing onto the natural hair. This method is ideal for anyone who is looking for extreme thickness and weight, great for that photo perfect hair! Lasts about 8-12 weeks and the hair is reusable too!
Lasts About 4-10 Weeks
Temporary hair extensions using double sided clear tape to attach the extensions to the natural hair. They are super simple to install and take out for a quick change, lasting about 4-10 weeks.
Can I Swim With Extensions? +
Yes, although we recommend avoiding pools as much as possible. Chlorine and salt can damage the integrity and color of your extensions very quickly. Wearing a swimming cap is recommended whenever swimming to help protect your extensions in good shape.
When Can I Wash My Hair After Extensions? +
You should wash your hair no sooner than 24-48 hours after your treatment.
Use the hair care products recommended by your stylist – for example, avoid shampoo with sulfates, apply conditioner to mid-shaft ends only, and use a water softener in your shower if possible to remove hard water, which can dry and fade extensions. Use a wide tooth comb or wet brush when brushing extensions, especially when wet.
In addition, try to use dry shampoo as much as possible. Washing your extensions too much can cause them to slip more quickly.
Do not go to sleep when your hair is wet, try a loose braid instead.
How Do I Maintain My Extensions? +
Be prepared to spend some extra time getting ready in the morning (more hair means longer shampoos, blow drys and combing). We also recommend running your fingers in between your extensions several times throughout the day to help keep them from matting together.
Can I Style Extensions With Heat? +
Yes, if necessary, but be sparing using hot tools and always keep them below 400 degrees. Use a heat protectant before styling your hair.
Can I Color Extensions Myself? +
We do not advise you color your own extensions and also recommend caution when using purple shampoo on blonde hair. Extensions can easily absorb products such as purple shampoo, resulting in splotchy and uneven color. We recommend booking maintenance appointments with our salon for the best results!
