Am I a candidate for hair extensions?
For hair extensions, I usually recommend that the crown hair needs to be about four inches in length. However, there may be health issues relating to you and your hair that may prevent hair extensions from being an option. In rare cases for those clients with special needs, our professional REMY Human Hair extensions has advantages over other hair extensions. Since REMY Human Hair is the highest grade of real human hair and the preferred choice for hairpieces and wigs, giving them the added advantage of integrations of hair enhancements to work along side of the extensions if the client had the need, an option other companies do not have. This service is totally custom and specialized to one’s individual’s need.

If I don’t qualify for hair extensions, is there another option for me?
Yes!  You might to consider a hair accessory like Halo Couture. It is detachable.

How much do our Professional Hair Extensions cost?
Prices start at $1,000 to $4,000 on average for an application and varies depending on the desired effect. Factors that influence pricing are current length and thickness vs. desired length, thickness, and number of colors to be matched. Also, texturizing of curl pattern or coloring if the shades and curl patterns are not standard and must be pretreated prior to application or other variables that arise in the process. On average $1,000 thickens and adds volume to increase the density. Full heads usually range from $2,500 to $4,000 depending on lengths and texturizing. (Firm price quotes are given during YOUR OWN complimentary consultation due to the many variables that can affect the final price.) Our professional hair extensions are totally custom designed to achieve the look, color, and style you desire. In very specialized cases due to extreme length or a custom integrational hairpiece price is quoted at the time of consultation.

How long do they last and how often do I need maintenance?
It depends on the integrity of your own hair and how fast your hair grows and the method of application. Usually most clients feel the need to get maintenance every 8-12 weeks. With proper home maintenance, these extensions can be used multiple times. Hair grows on an average of about 1/2 inch a month. When extensions are closest to the scalp they are the least detectable.

How long does this process take?
The application will take 6 to 8 hours depending on the variables mentioned above. Once extensions are applied, the hair is cut and styled to blend the hair into the extensions to eliminate demarcation and prevent detection. Again, the desired finished look is discussed and application is designed accordingly.

Can you match my haircolor?
Our REMY Professional Hair Extensions mimics the level and tonal system of professional hair color. Combined with my expertise in coloring and perming, you are assured of a perfect match. If a perfect match is not an option with the stock colors then I will do a custom color blending by mixing several shades to perfectly match your hair. I will take into consideration natural fadage and oxidation that normally exist even in virgin hair.  This is one of the many factors that make our professional hair extensions look natural, undetectable, and superior to other extensions companies.

Can you match my curl pattern?
Curl patterns are unique to each individual and since our hair extensions are NOT permed-in curls but are NATURAL curls, they will vary from donor to donor. During our consultation, I will consider the texture of your own hair and will custom-order the extensions that will be the most compatible with your own natural curl.

How do I maintain my hair once I have REMY Professional Hair Extensions?
Your hair extensions can be treated much the same as if it was your natural hair. There are certain brushes, shampoos, and conditioning products that are recommended. A loose braid or scrunchee is suggested at bedtime to discourage tangling while you sleep.

Can I swim and do normal activities?
Yes, once the application is completed, you will receive a home care maintenance sheet so you will know the best way to care for your hair extensions.

Can my hair be colored at the same time?
It is recommended that hair be colored or touched up a minimum of 24-48 hours prior to application of extensions.

Can my new hair extensions be styled with heat rollers, curling iron, or round brush?
Yes, your hair extensions may be styled in the usual manner as you would style your own hair. I will provide you with a home-care maintenance sheet letting you know what is recommended to maintain your hair extensions.
