Instant Gratification with Hair Extensions

salon-daniel-mclean-blog-hair-extensionsEver wondered how your favorite celebrity switches between a variety of hairstyles in just a few days (sometimes hours)? There’s a growing hair trend among the celebrity set that is making it easier than ever to experiment with new styles in an instant: hair extensions! If concerns about quality, usage, appearance, or maintenance have stopped you from testing these new waters, fear not. Below we’ve outlined some frequently asked questions that take the guesswork out of this growing trend. 

Why Extensions?

Hair extensions offer versatility and protection. They are a quick, simple way to add length, color, or volume without the commitment. Making changes to your real hair can run the risk of causing permanent damage or resulting in a style that you may not be in love with. Think of extensions as a trial run before the full undertaking.

Anyone and everyone! Extensions come in a variety of colors, textures, and lengths. Examples of styles that can be created with these add in pieces include extravagant updos, intricate french braids, beautiful curls, or pin straight locks reminiscent of Cher’s iconic 70s style. If you need further evidence of how versatile (and ubiquitous) extensions can be, take inspiration from celebrities including Solange Knowles, Kelly Ripa, and Gwen Stefani.

What Options Are Available?

We offer a variety of hair extensions that provide a natural appearance and meet your specific needs. There are full-piece extensions that run the length of the entire head, sectioned pieces that can be used to fill in thinning/problem areas, or pieces created specifically for the hairline, or clip-in extensions for that anytime wear. Extensions come in four lengths with colors ranging from black to platinum blonde; there are even “Fantasy” varieties that are pre-colored in on trend pastels and other non-traditional hair colors!

Salon Daniel uses Hot Head and BABE extensions. These revolutionary brands are created from human remy hair and come in multiple pieces. Remy hair is the highest quality human hair and describes extensions that have kept the hair cuticle intact. This is important because it allows the hair extensions to remain undetectable when applied to the hair. Unlike most extensions currently on the market, these adhesive pieces are applied without the need for heat (which protects your natural hair!). We also offer a variety of other techniques for applying extensions, such as beads, keratin fusion, tape-in, and clip-ins.

Because these extensions are created from human hair, they can be treated in the same manner as your own hair. Wash, condition, and apply heat as you normally would (still exercising the same TLC you would provide your own locks). Water activates a body wave in the extensions, offering another style alternative. Due to its high quality, our extensions can be reapplied up to three times and last between eight and 10 weeks. 

Pricing varies on the length and type of hair.  Schedule a consultation now!!
