HAIR EXTENSIONS

Hair extensions can be used to add length, volume and color to your hair.

The first step is a free hair extension consultation to determine if and what hair extensions are right for you including Fusion, Great Lengths, human hair or curly hair extensions. Consultations usually take about 20 minutes and, after taking a thorough history of your hair and answering any questions you may have, we will work with you to determine which type of extension would help you achieve your desired look. A free sample will be placed in your hair at the consultation so that you can try it out and see how it feels because we want you to be confident in your choice prior to making the commitment and investment in hair extensions. We match the color and texture exactly so that the extensions will be virtually undetectable from your natural hair not matter the type of hair extensions including clip in, tape in or colored.

If you want to have your extensions put in the same day as your consultation, our hair extension salon can usually accommodate your request as we carry a large selection of hair and have most colors and textures in stock at all times.

In addition to human hair extensions, we offer four different methods of application.

1. Our KERATIN/FUSION hair extension method of application is the most common.  The “fusion bond” sometimes called the “strand-by-strand” method is the most long lasting type of extensions available. We take real 100% human hair and apply it to your natural hair in tiny attachments  – about the size of a grain of rice which are virtually undetectable, easy to maintain and last in the hair 3-4 months or longer while taking 2-3 hours to have Keratin/Fusion bonds applied. We have 5 different packages to choose from, based on how much hair you want to add. The packages range in price from $175-$2,195. Some of the brands we use for this method include HairDreams, SHE by SoCap and Cinderella.

2. Another type of hair extensions we offer is called the INSTANT MERMAID. We call it Instant because it only takes about an hour to get a full head of extensions, so you can have long hair instantly! These extensions are applied to your hair in strips with a medical grade adhesive and are sometimes called “seamless” extensions because they lay flat and seamlessly blend into your natural hair.  They are made of real remy human hair,  and are excellent quality. The cost is $925 for a full head of 20″ long, or only $795 for 12″ long. They will remain in your hair for 6-8 weeks, and you can come back and have the same hair re-applied up 2-3 more times for only $195. The brands we currently use for our Instant Mermaid are HotHeads, EasihairPro and Hairtalk.

3. LINK Hair Extensions are a nice alternative to fusion bond extensions and are sometimes called micro-links, or bead hear extensions. These are attached in small strands to your own natural hair using color coated link tubes to attach link strands to your natural hair. This process uses no heat, glue, or weaving with extensions lasting up to 3-4 months in your hair and can be re-applied up to 2 times. The price for link extensions range from $175-$2,195 depending on how much hair you desire. We use Dreamcatchers and Short2Long hair for this method.

4. If you love clip in hair extensions but want something a little more permanent we suggest WEFTS. These are undetectable skin like extensions that are attached to your natural hair with small silicone-line microbeads.  The weft blends seamlessly to provide a lightweight and comfortable attachment, and provides 18″-20″ of length. Application takes about an hour and the cost is $650. You will need to come in about every 6-8 weeks to have a re-application done if you choose to continue to use the hair. The cost for re-application is $195. We use Klix and Pure Express wefts for this process.

All of our hair extensions are sold as a package. We start with a deep cleansing shampoo and clarifying treatment, and once the application process is complete your hair will be cut to the desired length and styled.  We will send you home with a new  hair brush and everything you need to take care of your new hair!

Whichever package you select, you will receive free hair cuts and maintenance for the life of your extensions. We will also remove them for free when you are ready to have them removed. Our hair extensions salon is located in Kirkland, WA and serving the Greater Seattle area including Bellevue, Everett, Issaquah & Renton.
