1. How long does my natural hair have to be for extensions?
While the preferred minimum hair length for a successful application of long hair extensions would be 8-10 cm, and for a full head application would be 13-16 cm, it is possible to applyhair extensions on natural hair with as little as 2 cm length, but overall results will vary greatly
2. How long does it take to put extensions in?
For lengthening services, the application time can be anywhere from between 3 to 5 hours and volume application can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours.
3. How much does it cost?
There is a lot to consider for each individual and their hair extension goals and it is therefore impossible to provide a blind quote. During a consultation, our stylists will meet with you to assess multiple factors, including density of your hair, size of your head and the type of extension best for application (just to name a few). No two applications are the same as the quantity of hair we apply depends on your natural hair and the look you would like to achieve. This is why we offer a free consultation so we can quote for your individual needs.
4. How are the strands attached to the natural hair?
Great Lengths use a patent technology within their bond so that the structure can be molded around the shaft of the hair and customised to fit the shape of the head and direction of the hair. This ensures maximum discretion, comfort and zero damage to your hair.
5. Is my hair too fine for Great Lengths extensions?
While Great Lengths are able to be customised as a standard, fine or micro hair extension, it is possible that in some cases, clients may not be suitable for extensions. Our stylists are trained to correctly analyse your suitability and devise a plan that is best suited, while considering your hair, hair goals and lifestyle factors. This will be discussed in detail during the consultation and honest advice will be provided.
