Long, full and beautiful locks can allow you to feel more sexy, feminine and confident in life. Many of the most sought over heads of hair (think Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez, Chrissy Teigan, any of the Victoria’s Secret angels) utilize the help of extensions to achieve the perfect look.
Maybe you’re lusting over long loose beach waves or just want to make your ponytail a little voluminous, hair extensions are an instant way to achieve your ideal hair goals.
What are hair extensions?
Hair extensions are made of synthetic or human hair clip-in pieces, wefts, and weaves.
Extensions are applied in multiple different ways, which can impact the care, style and length of wear.
In salon, extensions are generally applied utilizing a tape-in or hand-tied method. At Canvas, we utilize two different types of extensions and two methods of hair application.
Bellohaven’s Hand-Tied Extensions
The Bellohaven Extensions are 100% luxury human hair extensions that create volume and remove the need for glue or heat chemicals. We use the narrow edge extensions that are designed to fit perfectly flat against the head, giving you that seamless, no-show look.
The extensions are applied hand-tied into your natural hair by a row of beads. With the Bellohaven Narrow Edge Wefts, you can cut the extensions to fit your head perfectly without shedding. Being of high quality, they last 1 year with proper regular maintenance.
Hairtalk Tape-in Extensions
hairtalk is the original tape-in extensions made of Remy 100% human hair. They are applied through a water-tight seal that secures the hair between two hypoallergenic adhesive bands for long-lasting wear.
The adhesive bands lay flat and are easy to remove. Upon application, you can expect application to last 6-8 weeks and can be reapplied up to 3 times, providing a total of 8-10 months of total wear.
What is the process of getting extensions? How much do extensions cost?
Each application at Canvas starts with a free consultation. It’s important for the stylist to understand what you’re looking for in terms of length, volume and fullness before ordering your custom extensions.
This consultation also provides you with an idea for the pricing and what’s required for the installation and upkeep.
The cost of hair and application is different for every client depending on what is wanted out of the extensions.
The time for application can typically take a few hours, depending on the amount of hair. Generally speaking, hand-tied take additional time to install than tape-in.
How do I care for hair extensions?
Once your hair has been ordered and delivered, at your next appointment the hair will be installed, cut and styled to fit your look.
Our extensions require a maintenance agreement which guarantees your price every 4-6 weeks and will allow you to look best.
Hair extensions are great for all types of hair including; thin, thick, short or long. Quality extensions do not provide pain or damage and are weather and pool safe.
Maybe your hair doesn’t seem to grow past a certain point? Or, you’d like a beautiful blended ombre look?
Extensions can truly transform your look and open up a wide variety of styling options.
