Frequenty Asked Questions about

HAIR EXTENSIONS


1) How much do hair extensions cost?

To price how much your hair extensions will cost, you will need to come in to our salon for a consultation visit. When you come in for your consultation, we can help you answer any questions you still may have about the extension process.

2) How long does the hair extension process usually take?

Generally, it will require several hours to attach a full head of extensions. We use Cinderella Hair Extensions, which are carefully applied strand-by-strand, so it may take up to several hours.

3) Do I need to pay any maintenance costs?

Maintenance for your hair extensions is crucial. If taken care of properly, human hair extensions (like Cinderella Hair Extensions) can last for several months, whereas synthetic hair extensions typically last for half or less of that time. During maintenance visits, we will either replace any extensions that may have fallen out or completely remove the extensions to accomodate for new hair growth, depending on what is necessary. You may also need a hair cut to help realistically blend in your extensions with your current style.

4) Does it hurt to get hair extensions?

No! Some people have complained of getting minor headaches when switching over from a very short to a very long style, possibly due to the extra weight of the new extensions. The extension process, however, is totally pain-free.

5) Will I need to use special hair care products for my extensions? What hair appliances can I use?

When we apply your extensions at Salon De Moda, we will inform you about what products are best for optimum maintenance of your hair extensions. We use human hair extensions, which are safe for most heating hair appliances. Your stylist at Salon De Moda will advise you in how to use curling irons, etc. so as not to damage or displace your extensions.

6) Is there anything special I can to do to keep my hair extensions looking their best?

After your hair extension is complete, your stylist will let you know the standard protocol for optimum maintenance of your extensions. Generally, this includes wearing a cap while swimming and blow-drying your hair after showering or otherwise getting it wet. Also, braiding your hair before going to bed may help you to keep your extensions detangled.

7) Is it possible to still color or perm my hair with extensions in?

You will, in most cases, be able to dye your roots with extensions attached. An all-over color change or perm will most likely not be possible. In most cases, it is best to have the extensions removed if you are planning a dramatic style change.

8) Okay...so you use human hair extensions. What's up with that?

There are two basic types of human hair used by salons: Remi (or Cuticle) Hair and Non-Remi Hair. Remi Hair, like what is used in Cinderella Hair Extensions, is hair that has been cut off a donor's head and collected together in the exact way that it was cut off, allowing for all of the hair cuticles to be running in the same direction. Non-Remi Hair is typically collected from hair brushes, or hair that has been cut off a donor's head and has fallen to the floor. Remi Hair is thought to be of much higher quality and because of that it tends to be quite a bit more expensive than Non-Remi Hair.

Most hair extensions come from Europe and Asia, where women less frequently color their hair, making it more suitable for use as extensions. The "biggest" human hair donor countries are India, China, and Russia.

9) Are human hair extensions of a higher quality than synthetic extensions?

This largely depends on how long you want to keep your extensions attached and how you plan to style them. If you are looking for long-term extensions that you can style more or less freely with heated appliances, human hair is the choice for you. If you are only planning to keep your extensions in for a short amount of time, such as for a wedding or other celebration, then synthetic hair may be a better option due to its dramatically lower cost.

10) How easy is it to remove hair extensions? Can I do this myself?

It is not recommended for you to remove your extensions on your own. Visit us at Salon De Moda and we can safely and adeptly take out your extensions when the time comes.
