A-List Look

If you want to achieve a glamourous A-lister look, then it is important to ensure that your extensions are put in by a qualified hair technician. You get what you pay for in the world of hairdressing, so don’t try to save money and go for a cheap deal as you will likely find that they won’t last long and will look fake.

Here are some of theservices to look out for when employing a technician to do your extensions:

  • Someone who uses 100% human hair
  • Fixing hair so that they cuticles all face in the same direction to get an even look
  • Applying hair in thin strips, so that they can easily be reused
  • Every strand should have the same thickness from the roots to the bottom

You should be able to style your hair normally when human hair extensions are put in properly and they shouldn’t be uncomfortable when you sleep.

Top Tip: It can take around three or four hours to put extensions in, so be prepared to spend a long time at the salon and extensions can last for around one year if they are properly taken care of.
