Hair Extensions Example

Client profile: The client pictured described their history of experiencing hair loss whilst also becoming frustrated by their lack of volume and length. The number of different shades in the hair from historical home hair colouring meant that finding a true colour was going to be challenging. By selecting two colours, this helped to present the illusion of highlighted hair whilst blending the extensions in with the natural hair to resemble two different shades in highlighted form.

What does it mean?

  • Hair Extensions: Hair extension methods can seem overwhelming. After all, there are so many options! The best method of applying extensions can usually be attributed to lifestyle and budget. Some methods have more obvious upsides whereas others have more obvious downsides. In this example we used nano rings which are famed for how discreet they are. They are much smaller than other methods, so given the client profile (box coloured hair and experiencing some hair loss), this option was favoured to help blend the extensions in much more seamlessly.
  • Colours: A huge upside to all hair extension methods is that you likely won’t be short of colour options. This extends most brands too so no-matter your eventual choice of brand, salon or application, the colour most likely won’t be the defining decision-making factor. In more recent times, hair extensions are much more sophisticated allowing for multiple colours in highlighting form, balayage form or just one colour.
  • Lifespan: The warranty behind hair extensions is favourable. They vary from three months to six months on average, however if well looked after, there is no reason why they can’t last for longer. In our experience, clients can stretch extensions for as long as 18 months, however more commonly 12 months is the ideal range to aim for if well maintained.
  • Follow-up Appointments: Nano rings are very similar to taped extensions insofar as they will at some stage need to be removed and reapplied. The process for removal is usually the three month mark. Once removed, they are looked after within the salon and reattached usually the following day. Why? Hair typically grows at a rate of roughly half-an-inch every month. When originally applied nano rings are discreet due to their type of application. At the three month mark it’s likely that the attachments will become more visible, so removing and reapplying is sensible. The upside is that you don’t need to pay for the extensions twice!

Hair Extension FAQ's

What are Hair extensions?

Hair extensions are most commonly natural hair strands applied to your existing hair to add length, volume, or enhance the overall appearance of your hairstyle. These extensions come in various types, textures, and colours, catering to individual preferences and desired looks.

How do hair extensions work?

Hair extensions are typically attached using different methods like tapes, clips, bonds, or rings. The chosen method is applied by a trained stylist, integrating the extensions seamlessly with your natural hair for a fuller and longer look.

Why Hair Extensions?

Hair extensions offer a quick way to change your hairstyle, add length, or experiment with various colours without the commitment of permanent colouring or lengthy hair growth periods. They provide versatility, allowing you to switch up your look effortlessly.

Why are hair extensions so popular?

The popularity of hair extensions stems from their ability to provide instant transformations. They allow individuals to achieve desired hair lengths, styles, and volumes that may not be achievable with their natural hair alone.

What is the difference between taped extensions and nano rings?

Tape-in hair extensions involve adhering wefts of hair with tape to sections of your natural hair. On the other hand, nano ring extensions use tiny metal rings to attach individual hair strands to small sections of your own hair. Both methods offer varying durability and maintenance needs.

What do hair extensions do to your hair?

When properly applied and cared for, hair extensions shouldn’t cause damage to your natural hair. However, if not fitted or maintained correctly, they can potentially lead to hair breakage or stress on the scalp.

What are the downside to taped hair extensions?

Some downsides of hair extensions may include possible damage to your natural hair if not applied or cared for properly. Additionally, they may require regular maintenance and adjustments.

What do taped hair extensions cost?

The cost of hair extensions varies depending on the type, quality, and method of application. At Wisteria Avenue, our pricing is tailored to the type of extensions and the service required, ensuring competitive rates for top-quality extensions and application methods.

The typical range in Oxfordshire is £200 – £1,000. At Wisteria Avenue our costs range from £250 – £550 on average which typically includes both the cost of extensions and fitting.

Your Questions,
Answered.

Maintenance is generally considered better than hair colour. For some context, highlights are usually applied six times annually.

Depending on the method, 3-4 months is usually the average. Most methods allow you to recycle the hair, meaning the cost is usually the extensions being removed and subsequently refitted.

The extensions themselves bear most of the cost. 

Hair extension salons generally don’t charge for the extensions, rather we pass on the direct cost. Our charges are for fitting only.

So long as they are taken care of, the introduction of hair extensions is fairly straightforward.

A lot will depend on getting used to longer and thicker hair.

Most hair extension salons won’t stock the extensions. For this reason a lot of stock is ordered in specifically for your appointment so expect a 48 hour turnaround.

Typically orders for extensions are non-refundable therefore we will ask for the cost of the extensions to be paid before any booking.

Whether you opt for tape ins, nano rings or something else, we will colour match your hair to ensure the right colour is ordered and applied to your hair.
