Hair Extensions

My hair extensions are available in a range of colors, including natural, ombre', blends and vibrant colors.  The hair extensions depending on the method can come in wavy, curly or straight styles available in various lenghts.

 
The hair extensions I use are 100% AAA Remy Human Hair and are European Blends.  They are of extraordinary quality, and colors can be crossed matched for perfect results.

The hair extensions utilize only Remy hair, which means that the cuticle layers are all facing the same direction from root to end. This ensures that the extensions behave exactly like your own hair, blending in superbly!  With the unique patented installation system, there is no concern about damage to the hair.  There is also no mess with GLUE, HEAT, WAX, and no to minimal damage.

The hair extensions I use look and feel amazing, even months after they’ve been installed, as long as you follow your hair stylists proper hair regiment, of course.   My hair extensions are available in a range of colors, including natural and vibrant colors.  Hair Extensions come in wavy or straight styles with the various length options.

I do all types of hair extensions and custom wig work, and in my career have had training  in nearly every line and method that I believe to be the best on the market.  My favorite method that is newer and the most popular choice are Natural Beaded Rows, or also known as hand tied wefts.

What are Hand Tied Wefts or Natural Beaded Rows, I am sure you are asking!?  Hand Tied Wefts are when your stylist puts rows of hair extensions horizontally across your head with beads using only hair thread and your natural hair.  Your stylist then takes hand tied weft extensions and then proceeds to sew these beaded hair extensions to the natural rows that your stylist has already created.
Most people do two rows but depending on your specific hair type, need, or want it can definitely vary. Typically I will sew in anywhere from 3-6 wefts on the top row and 2-6 wefts on the bottom row. Please take the time and research that you are sure you are going to a trained stylist in this method. Almost every client has told me that their hair has never been stronger or longer with using Natural Beaded Rows or Hand Tied Extensions. I am always very careful with where I place them, how I put them in, and the product that I use. I am being completely 100% honest when I say I have never noticed any damage in my clients hair since using natural beaded hair extensions or natural beaded rows.

Lets chat about why Natural Beaded Row/Hand Tied Weft Hair Extensions the perfect solution for both the stylist and the client? First of all you are in and out of the Salon in 1.5-3 hours!

Hair Smoothing

First question is what does a keratin treatment actually do? Keratin hair treatments fill in the porosity of your hair, what happens is overly-porous hair will cause tangles, frizz, and of course the biggest fear, hair breakage. Your hair is made up of the protein, keratin, so by using the keratin hair treatment you are putting the protein, keratin, back into the hair, which is often lost due to age, chemical services, and daily damage caused by your hot tools, brushing and one of the biggest culprits, water.

When the keratin treatment is applied by your stylist, it is basically rebuilding the damaged areas of the hair strand, the results you will come to see is an increase in shine, less frizziness, and an easier styling process just overall. Make sure to schedule a consultation or ask questions beforehand with your hair stylist to determine the best suited product, method and formula. Especially if your hair color is blonde, as every keratin hair treatment isn't created equally. If you are a blonde, see if the salon has a treatment for lighter colored hair and if you are a brunette ask as well! Some keratin hair treatments with glycolic acid can actually change the tonality of hair color, so a consultation with every client with these questions is something that should be done.

Investing in proper at home hair care is absolutely essential to prolong and maintain the life of your keratin hair treatment! You need to use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. Listen to what your hair stylist recommends for you and your specific hair treatment. The brand of keratin treatment used will have a specific shampoo and conditioner that will prolong the longevity of it, due to the fact that research has been done so that the shampoo/conditioner doesn't counteract the treatment. But as far as any keratin-infused shampoo, if the product contains sulfates, it has no benefit for your hair. Always get a recommendation from your hairstylist. If you ask your questions, listen to your experienced hair stylist, and use the right after-care products, your treatment should last at least two months, possibly more depending on your hair type, and how often you are washing your hair. It will require commitment and communication just like any relationship. It's important that you research everything about the treatment you are considering, and understand both the maintenance and post-regimen routine.
The Process

After clarifying your hair multiple times using an intense clarifying shampoo and slightly drying your hair, the Keratin Hair Smoothing solution is applied, starting with thin sections starting at the nape of the neck and combed through.  Your hair is then wrapped in a plastic cap for 20 minute or just for a few minutes depending on what type of treatment you and your stylist chose to do.  

After that, your stylist will blow-dry the treatment in using a round brush and then continue to use a flat iron, running it multiple times over your hair, strand by strand, again starting at the base of your neck.  Once again, depending on the type of treatment used, your hair will either be washed and you will see the result of your hair treatment right away, or you will need to keep your treatment in and your hair straight for 24-72 hours.

Product
The Keratin treatment solution is gel-based and has almost no fragrance.  The treatment is formaldehyde-free so there is little to no irritation. If you do feel any irritation, make sure to just close your eyes, as some people can be more sensitive then others to products in general.

Results
Keratin Hair Smoothing Therapy is not a permanent straightener, I for one call it a smoothing treatment, but it does give strong results and the more treatments that you do, the longer and more permanent the results.  I have seen the results last as long as 3-5 months.  The more times that you do the treatment the longer your results will last.

Aftercare
I recommend using shampoo and conditioner made by the brand that is being used on your hair, which will be safe for the treatment and also contain some of the active ingredients to help prolong the effects of your treatment.

Hair Color

I use Farmavita hair Coloring System, which is the #1 hair color treatment in the world.  I also use Wella and Goldwell hair color. All these hair colors in my opinion are the best on the market. What they all have in common is they are actually good for your hair! They all have ingredients that heal the hair and maintain the integrity of the hair.  I trust these products, and I am able to ensure that my clients leave the salon with healthy, shiny, and gorgeous hair color!

Farmavita hair color is based on a Synergic system that extends the duration of the hair color and assures a total covering of the hair.  The sunflower seeds are also rich in protective substances, such as Polyunsatured Fatty Acids, Vitamin E, Vitamin A and Poliphenols, which help hair fight the harmful effects of U.V. rays and smog.

This technology is used to achieve vibrant, long-lasting color while simultaneously moisturizing and protecting the hair. The Suprema 60ml range is enriched with five nourishing herbs and essential oils and is gentler on the hair and scalp than other hair color brands. B.life color is a gentle, ammonia free, professional hair coloring cream, enriched with Argan Oil.
