Great Lengths Makeovers!

June 18, 2014 — Leave a comment

Hello All,

It’s been a busy June so far and extensions are the reason for it. I’ve done two big Great Lengths makeovers that I wanted to share with you. Both were between 5-6 hour services, and both were to add length and thickness.

Rachel has fine hair and slightly damaged due to over styling and over processing. I used 12″ Great Lengths hair in colors 64, 19, & 09, standard bundles cut down to extra fine and custom bonds. The placement blended quite well into her ombre hair color done by John O’Brien at Antonio Prieto Salon.

My next client Erin also wanted a bit of length and fullness. I used 16″ Great Lengths hair in colors 64, 84 & 09. Standard bundles cut down into extra fine bonds to blend with her natural density.

In both cases, cutting and blending the extensions into their natural hair is key. In my opinion it’s the difference between noticeable extensions that people on the street point at and stage whisper to their friend and say, “she has extensions” and seamless extensions that are undetectable and people on the street say to their friend, “I love her hair”. While there is skill and an eye for placement involved with an extension service, once you have your rhythm down, it’s 4-6 hours of the same repetitive movement. You only get one shot at blending the extensions into the natural hair. If you cut the extensions too short or create an awkward layer you have to take those out and put new ones in.

These will last approximately 4 months and dry with a soft wave to blend into their natural texture.

You don’t always have to go for length and fullness. Some clients are happy with their current length, but just want to add fullness and volume to what they have. In that case you need a lot less Great Lengths hair and it’s also a great way to experiment with extensions.

If you’re curious, make a consultation at a certified Great Lengths salon. http://getgreatlengths.com/salonlocator.aspx
