WHAT TYPE OF EXTENSIONS DO YOU USE?
We are partnered with Philocaly Extensions which has the options of tape-ins, hand-tied weft and bonded extensions. Philocaly only uses 100% Russian Remy, single donor, silicone-free, cuticle in-tact, human hair in all of our products.
WHAT ARE TAPE-IN EXTENSIONS?
Philocaly tape extensions are strips of clear, double-sided tape, which are attached to premium Russian hair. These 4 cm tapes are then sandwiched in-between sectioned pieces of hair to create a look that even the Victoria Secret angels would envy. Because the tape is extremely flexible and light, you can still style your hair into your favourite looks such as high ponytails and topknots! In fact, tape extensions are so light and comfortable that you may even forget you are wearing them.
WILL PEOPLE KNOW THAT I AM WEARING EXTENSIONS?
Your secret is safe with us! Hair extensions are so discrete that no one will be able to tell you are wearing them. Our hair extensions are made of 100% Russian human hair, which means the hair will look just like your own (just a lot fuller and longer). Also, you can curl and straighten your hair extensions just like you would with your natural hair. Therefore, no one will know you are wearing hair extensions but everyone will notice your new look!
WILL TAPE-IN HAIR EXTENSIONS DAMAGE MY HAIR?
No- really it’s true! If you have tape in hair extensions applied correctly and treat your hair with care, tape in hair extensions will not damage your natural hair. This method is 100% natural and requires no chemicals or tools. Tapes are the least damaging semi-permanent application method on the market today!
HOW ARE TAPE-IN EXTENSIONS APPLIED?
Gone are the days of sitting in a salon for 8 gruesome hours for your hair extensions to be applied. The application process for tapes is done by placing two hair extensions onto each other with your natural hair in between. This technique is called the “sandwich” technique. Tape extensions take approximately 30-45 minutes for a full application – Seriously that’s it! A trained professional should always install tape extensions and our stylists are certified to do applications.
ARE TAPE- IN HAIR EXTENSIONS EXPENSIVE?
This method is very affordable. Our stylists charge $100 for your first installation plus the cost of hair. The reason it is so affordable is because of how quick the application takes. Tape-in hair extensions can also be reused and moved up. Therefore, you don’t constantly have to be buying new hair like other extension application methods in the market. A maitenence appointment takes a little bit longer because of removal, and is $150.
HOW LONG DO TAPE-IN EXTENSIONS STAY IN?
Tape in hair extensions are applied close to the scalp. As your hair grows out, so will the tape bonds. On average you should have your tapes moved up every 6-8 weeks by a stylist.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HAND-TIED WEFTS AND TAPE-INS?
WHAT ARE HAND-TIED WEFTS?
Hair is individually hand-tied onto a hand-sewn weft by an experienced technician. This attention to detail ensures that hair is strongly secured and does not shed. Hand tied wefts are thinner, flatter, and more flexible than machine-tied wefts, allowing the hair extensions to lay closer to the scalp and provide a more natural look and feel.
HOW ARE HAND-TIED WEFTS APPLIED?
Your stylist will create beaded rows and then proceed to weave Philocaly hand-tied wefts to the beads and subsequently your natural hair. Because beads are used, there are less points of contact with your natural hair than any other semi-permanent method on the market. Not only does this maintain the health of your hair but also results in ultimate comfort. Your hair and the weft hair will then be coloured for a seamless look.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO TIGHTEN MY HAND-TIED WEFTS?
Hand-tied wefts tend to last a bit longer than the tape extensions (typically 6-8 weeks). We recommend your first tightening at 8 weeks and then can decide if you can go closer to 10 weeks inbetween in the future (dependant on how fast your hair grows). At these appointments your stylist will remove the extensions, reapply the same extension hair and touch up your cut for blending.
HOW MUCH CAN I EXPECT TO PAY FOR HAND-TIED WEFTS?
Because hand-tied wefts take more time to apply than tape-ins, you can expect to pay more for application with this method. We price the first install to include hair and application which is $1200 for a full set. A set just for volume will be closer to $700. The price for tightening is $300 for a full set.
