What are human hair extensions?
Hair extensions are accessories that can be clipped or bonded into your own hair to add extra length or volume. If you’re new to the world of hair extensions then these are perfect for you! Clip-in hair extensions are very easy to place in your own hair and have the added bonus of blending in to your hair to be virtually undetected by everyone around you! They can easily be attached simply by clipping them into your hair with the clips that come pre-attached and can be removed just as quickly. Full instructions are provided with every hair extensions set.
How long does my hair have to be to use hair extensions?
There is no rule with regards to how long your hair has to be. For best results your own hair would be at least down to your shoulders to ensure that the extensions blend well with your own hair and therefore are not easily detectable, but we do have many customers that have achieved a great look with shorter hair. If you are at all unsure why not send us a photos and a member of our trained staff will advise on the best option for you.
I can’t find the right hair colour, what should I do?
For some people choosing hair extensions is very easy. And for others it can be difficult to get an exact match to your own hair. If you are struggling to find the right colour we certainly can help! Just send us a photo of your hair and one of our qualified staff will recommend the best colour to match – either exactly or by colour that would blend best!
How long should my hair extensions last?
This will all depend on how much you use them and how well you care for them. Generally they should last between 3-6 months. Full aftercare details are provided with each purchase
What does Remy / Remi mean?
Remy (also referred to as “remi”) is not a brand but rather a grading system for human hair extensions. When purchasing remy hair you are getting hair that is confirmed as “cuticle correct”. This means that the hair is prepares so that every strand flows in the same downward direction. This is a must for human hair extensions as it means they extensions will flow naturally with your own hair and be far less likely to matt or tangle when worn.
Can I straighten and Curl my hair extensions?
Yes you can! In fact you can treat them just like you would your own hair! Just remember that, like your own hair, human hair extensions are not indestructible so treat them with care and respect! Unlike your own hair, extensions are no longer receiving nutrients from your scalp so excessive heat can shorten the life of the extension due to this we would always recommend using lower heat where possible and allowing the hair to try naturally rather than using a hair dryer where possible.
Can I dye my hair extensions?
We strongly advise that you do not dye hair extensions and instead purchase the correct colour for you. Although it is possible to dye hair extensions, unexpected results may occur depending on the quality of the dye and the skill of the person doing it. If you really must dye the hair then a shade lighter or darker is likely to take ok. Making drastic changed from dark brown to bleach blonde, for example will damage the hair and shorten the usable life of the hair.
Please note that we will not accept returns on any hair that has been dyed.
