HAIR EXTENSIONS

We have spent a combined total of 35 years applying hair extensions to satisfied clients from all walks of life. We take great pride in seeing the  stunning transformation that Great  Lengths extensions make to  a clients hair. We know that not only does the client look and feel beautiful, but also that they are safe in the knowledge that their new hair extensions have been applied correctly and expertly.

 

We have  applied hair extensions at two of the only salons in Scotland to currently have reached Great Lengths Hair Extensions  Platinum status. We like to think our contribution at both salons helped them gain platinum status

 

We work only with Great Lengths extensions quite simply because in our opinion they are the very best. Not only do they look and feel great but they are  much more durable than other inferior quality hair extensions.

 

If you want that 'WOW' factor that Great Lengths hair extensions can give you, book a complimentary consultation. Have a chat with us......Karen or Annette at 132 West Regent street and discuss how we can give your hair that stunning new look.

 

HAIR EXTENSIONS FAQ's

Are Great Lengths 100% human hair extensions suitable for everyone?

Hair extensions are a cosmetic procedure and they should be applied to healthy hair. Hair must be at least 5 – 8cms in length to provide comfortable attachments. There are some medical conditions that may make a minority of clients unsuitable for extensions, which is why Great Lengths certified salons offer a free, no obligation consultation. At this stage the client’s suitability can be ascertained and the salon can be confident they can produce a high quality result.

 

Are human hair extensions better, and why?

Great Lengths only uses 100% human hair because it behaves like your own hair. Human hair extensions are recommended because they create a more natural look and effect.

 

This means extensions can be styled using heated tools and straighteners, as well as professionally coloured and permed. They are also suitable for most lifestyle activities. So there really are no limits to what you can do when wearing Great Lengths extensions.

 

Will hair extensions damage my hair?

Some types of bonding systems have been known to cause breakage to natural hair strands. You can be assured that Great Lengths’ specially formulated bonds have been scientifically proven not to cause damage to hair when applied with either our Classic Heat or Cold Fusion systems. Always make sure you have our hair extensions applied by a certified Great Lengths stylist.

 

How long will my Great Lengths hair extensions last?

By following our simple extensions maintenance programme and aftercare tips, Great Lengths can last up to five months. Using Great Lengths aftercare products will also prolong the life of extensions as they are designed to protect the hair and the bond.

 

How should I look after my hair extensions when they're in?

Simply follow the guidelines set out on your consultation form, the advice explained to you in detail by your stylist and take a look at our expert aftercare tips. You should also be invited by your stylist to a free maintenance check after approximately 3-4 weeks

 

How long does it take for hair extensions to be applied?

This depends on how many extensions you are having and the application system being used. But expect it to be anywhere between one and three hours. Your stylist will be able to discuss this with you further at your consultation.

 

Do I have to get a full head of hair extensions?

You can have as many or as few extensions as you need to achieve the look you want – even a few simple strands can make a huge difference for either a splash of colour or a little volume. The possibilities are endless.

 

How are the hair extensions removed?

You will need to revisit your salon, where the stylist will use a specially formulated Great Lengths removal gel. When applied this gel gently breaks down the bond and with the removal tool, the extensionist is able to slide the bond down your own hair with no damage.

 

What will my hair be like when I remove the hair extensions?

Once you have had your extensions removed, your hair needs to be washed and conditioned with the Great Lengths products to clean away any residue from the removal gel. Your hair will be completely undamaged by the extensions and look a little longer than you remember.
