Rapunzel, Rapunzel! Let Down Your Extensions?

By September 6, 2019Uncategorized

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have the hair length and volume of your dreams, but never knew how to get it? Look no further, Colour Bar Studio has got you covered!

What exactly are hair extensions?

At Colour Bar Studio we are trained in using Halo Couture and Great Lengths extensions. “Remy hair is the highest grade of hair for hair extensions, and it is human, not synthetic, hair. “Remy” refers to human hair harvested from the scalp where the cuticle is kept pointed in the same direction as the hairs next to it. Because all the hair flows naturally from the same direction, Remy hair stays silkier and softer. The advantage to Remy hair is it is less prone to tangles and knotting.” (fnlonglocks.com)

What kind of extensions are there?

Here at Colour Bar Studio we are licensed to provide services for Great Lengths fusion and Halo Couture original halo and tape-in extensions.

Halo Couture Tape-in extensions: Tape in extensions are just what they sound like! In this process, your natural hair is sandwiched in between two wefts of extensions that have a tape-like bonder at the tip. Typically, tape in extensions last for 6-8 weeks ( depending on maintenance and hair growth.)

Great Lengths Fusion Extensions: The name fusion refers to the fact that these are tiny, individual wefts of hair that are fused with heat to your natural hair. The tip of these wefts contains a mix of polymers and breathable glues that stick to your hair when intense heat is applied. Although this can sound intimidating, the results are beyond gorgeous. It is the most natural looking extensions and the most long lasting.  With proper maintenance, fusion extensions can last for 3-5 months. ( Depending on hair grow and careful maintenance)

HaloCouture The Original Halo: The most genius of inventions for a girl who’s looking for the occasional pop in her hair routine. HaloCouture is a revolutionary design in hair extensions that is non-damaging and can be applied from the comfort of your own home. Halo really is the perfect name for it, as it looks like a crown of hair that you slip over your head and tuck under your natural hair so that it is virtually invisible. HaloCouture adds volume and length in a matter of seconds to take your look to the next level. With proper maintenance this product can last for well over 9- 12 months. Colour Bar Studio is a licensed vendor and can find your perfect match when it comes to color, style and texture of hair.

What if I have textured hair?

No worries! Great Lengths provides hair that ranges from 2a-3c curls so everyone can be perfectly matched, no matter the texture.

How to maintain my new hair?

Hair extensions should be treated just as carefully as you would treat your own hair. If you’re thinking of extensions it is important to understand that there is more upkeep involved when considering any type of extensions. Colour Bar Studio requires our clients to have a consultation appointment prior to any extension service to ensure that it is something our clients are prepared for. We also require that our clients sign a contract stating that they will keep up with the maintenance of their new hair. Extensions should be kept as dry as possible. For example if you go to a work out class or swimming, make sure to rinse the extensions and blow dry them so the polymer bonds do not begin to deteriorate. Using natural, clean and sulfate free products are non-negotiables when it comes to hair extensions (and trust us, your natural hair will love you for it too!). It is also vital to keep the extensions as tangle free as possible, so that they stay smooth and shiny. Tangles can also begin to pull the hairs out of the bonds and break, causing frizziness.

Hair extensions are a fabulous way to instantly add length and volume to any kind of hair style. Our stylists at Colour Bar Studio are happy to answer any and all questions when it comes to our services. Book an appointment to talk about how you can reach your full hair potential!
