Here are some hair extensions FAQ’s :

General questions


  • Properly fitted hair extensions can change the way you look and feel about yourself
  • They instantly give thicker, added volume to lifeless thin hair
  • They instantly add great length to your hair

We will match all extensions perfectly to your hair weight and colour so you get a very natural look.  That is the difference with good extensions.


Hair extensions last for 3 months with on-going retouches.


You can treat hair extensions like your own hair.  It may take longer to wash and dry.


This depends on whether you’re having a full head, partial head or just a few strands. It can take anything from 30 minutes to 4 hours. Contact Us and we will give you a clearer guide as to how long you personally need to set aside.


No, as long as the extensions are applied properly. All our team is a fully trained Hair Extension Technicians with years of experience in a full range of methods.


Yes, you can style using straighteners, hair dryers, tongs and heated rollers.


A specially formulated solution is applied to the bond and then combed through to remove.


Hair extensions can be uncomfortable for the first night or so, but this will ease in time as the extensions relax.

Extensions can damage the natural hair if they are not looked after and maintained accordingly. Details of how to do this will be given to you during consultation.


Touch up appointments are an hour-long every four to eight weeks depending on the speed of your hair growth, this appointment cost £65 but that’s only for the hour if the extensions aren’t maintained correctly this may take longer and I charge an extra £10 every half hour on top.



Bridal hair extensions


Hair extensions can help you create your dream hair on your big day with fuller, thicker and longer locks that feel and look completely natural. Make sure you opt for the best quality hair extensions brand and go to a reputable salon that specialise in hair extensions. I use Great Lengths hair extensions which is renowned as being the ‘Rolls Royce’ of hair extensions. Whether you need that extra length, volume, fade-free highlights or texture, they’ll give you healthy, lustrous locks to help create the perfect hair on your special day.


I always recommend my clients have their hair extensions applied at least 2-3 weeks prior to their wedding day, so make sure you go in for your initial consultation as early as possible. This will give enough time to prepare your wedding hair extensions to suit you, and also trial your chosen hairstyle before the big day. If you are planning to have colour, make sure you have this done first before you go in for your initial hair extensions consultation, so that your specialist does an exact hair colour match.


Because the extensions are applied in small sectioned strands (micro bonds) and not large wefts or clip-ins, the visible bump that cheaper extensions create is gone. The beauty of good quality, 100% natural human hair.


Following just a few simple guidelines and a little extra care in your hair care regime will keep your wedding hair extensions looking fabulous throughout their lifespan (up to 4 months). If you are going to a hot climate country for your honeymoon, you can wear your hair up, down, style and even swim with them. Make sure you use quality aftercare products for longer lasting results. All aftercare information and products should be discussed with you by your extensions specialist, at the initial consultation and after the application of your hair extensions.


Simply put, No! When applied by a professionally trained and certified specialist, the wedding hair extensions will not damage your hair. The strands are applied using a patented bond, which mimics the structure keratin (a natural component of human hair) and is simply moulded around your hair. Unlike other extensions that are attached with synthetic glues, waxes and clamps, the Great Lengths bond is easily removed with a special removal gel a trained professional at the salon, causing no damage to your own natural hair.


I will give you an exact price on consultation, as the cost depends on the quantity and length of hair extensions required in order to achieve the desired look. Our starting price is around £300. We also offer special bridal hair packages which includes hair extensions, wedding hair trials, colour, nail services and on-location services. Great lengths allow you the freedom to style the hair as if it were your own giving you endless styling options including a casual, modern or traditional look.

HOW TO NOT REMOVE HAIR EXTENSIONS :((

Never ever, remove your own hair extensions. You will damage your hair, you may even end up with bald patches. Depending on the system depends on the procedure of the removal and lotions, unfortunately hair extensions get blamed for damaging the hair, but if you remove them yourself, this will happen.

Our charge of £80 to remove your hair extensions it can take us just as long to remove carefully than what it does to put them in. Consider all of this when thinking of hair extensions. I spend a lot of time removing as this is where the damage can occur if not done correctly.
