Hair extensions

Want long luscious locks but don't want to wait years for your hair to grow ? We help you work out which hair extensions are right for you.

Great Lengths hair extensions
Application: Attached to the natural hair with a patented keratin bond that the brand claims mimics your hair's molecular structure.
Removal: In salon-only. They're dissolved with a removal solution that promises not to damage your hair's natural cuticle.
Made from: It's 100 percent natural hair, available in 40 natural shades and 14 fashion colours.
Care factor: Be as cautious with blasting heat as you would with your natural hair. A Great Lengths soft-bristle brush is recommended to avoid tangling.
Cuts and colours: You can safely colour them with a semi-permanent or chemical-free highlights or lowlights.
Lasts: Two to three months and up to six if you use the Great Lengths home-care shampoos and conditioners.
You'll love them because: The cuticles are aligned in the same direction as your real hair so they're harder to detect (Paris Hilton, take note).
Cost: Highlights from $200-$350; half-head from $500-$700; full-head from $1000-$1400. Prices vary between salons.

Cinderella hair extensions
Application: A low-temperature bond applicator is used to attach each extension (25 strands of already-bonded hair) to your real hair.
Removal: In-salon only. A bond-removing solution is used to remove them without leaving residue on your real hair.
Made from: Human hair, but there's also a more budget-friendly synthetic Profibre option.
Care factor: Heat (including blow-dryers, curling tongs and straighteners) can be used on the human hair extensions, but not the Profibre extensions.
Cuts and colours: The human hair extensions can be cut and coloured but there are 65 shades to choose from, so you're likely to find the right one for you. Profibre extensions can't be cut or coloured.
Lasts: Three months if you treat them well (the human hair extensions may last longer).
You'll love them because: They offer a wide variety of colours and textures to match your hair (silky straight or body wave).
Cost: From $200.

Original Diva
Application: Original Diva Clip-On Inserts are clip-on extensions with a non-slip rubber grip. Original Diva Permanent Inserts use a Teflon-coated micro-ring that attaches a soft keratin tipped hair extension to the client's hair shaft.
Removal: The clip-ons simply "pop" out, while the permanent micro-rings are "squeezed" off.
Made from: 100 percent human hair.
Cuts and colours: Cut and colour with semi-permanents; straighten and curl as you would your normal hair.
Lasts: Around one year, but professionals recommend Original Diva permanent inserts be removed and reapplied every eight weeks.
You'll love them because: The "flare" technology means the base of the hair extensions puff out slightly and blend more naturally into your own hair.
Cost: From $10.95 for each clip-on strand and from $7.70 for each permanent strand.

Removal: Just unclip and you're done!
Made from: It's 100 percent real hair.
Care factor: Treat it like your own hair — don't blast with too much heat and wash out styling products the following day. Let them dry naturally if you can.
Cuts and colours: Brand claims to be able to match 80 percent of hair colours, but you can colour them if you wish. They come in a variety of lengths (30cm-50cm).
Lasts: At least 12 months but, if you're good to them, they could last years.
You'll love them because: You can change your look daily. They even do a clip-on fringe. They're also really popular with Australian celebs.

For this display I bought a 6 feet weft of locks from Sue Elegance Provide. I then cut the weft to fit the style, Brooke's, head and made the parts to segments. Sally's provides all the resources required to do this, or you can buy a locks expansion system that already has the segments connected to wefts willing to place in your locks.

I decided a shade that carefully equalled my Brooke's pitch-dark locks shade. It's worth noting that large does not have to go with exactly. Your organic locks shade will combination with the extensions. A associate at the shop can help you choose a shade that will enhance your organic shade. I suggest status in sunlight when buying a shade, as synthetic lighting can modify large of the locks extensions.

Natural or synthetic locks can be selected for the extensions. Natural locks can be cleaned and curled like your locks, while synthetic locks can not be moved by warm.

If you are anything like me you change your hair style as often as your mood. I've gone from short pixie cuts that looked awesome, to super long & sheik, and everywhere in between. I've tried heaps of products, dyes and extensions over the years and recently came across a site that took the cake information wise on hair dyes & the steps involved in applying high lights and lowlights to ones hair.

Here's the link to their colouring informational page -

The information and videos were super informative. I hope you find it helpful. They also have a huge range of microloops, clip ins & heaps of colours to choose from too. Check them out!
