FAQ - Hair Extensions
What are hair extensions?
The hair extension service is a service where pieces of hair are bonded to the ends of your natural hair to create a long hair look or add thickness to your natural hair.
Are hair extensions real hair or synthetic hair?
Champagne Salonís extensions are 100% authentic human hair.
How do the hair extensions stay in my hair?
Great Lengths Hair Extensions are bonded to your natural hair with a unique keratin protein bond.
Will hair extensions cause damage to my natural hair?
Great Lengths Hair Extensions are non-damaging to your natural hair.
Will people be able to see the extension bonds?
Champagne Salon utilizes the Great Lengths Hair Extension System because we feel it is the most natural looking extension process we can offer to our clients. It blends very well with your natural hair and looks completely natural.
How much do hair extensions cost?
A hair extension application first requires a complimentary consultation from the Champagne Salon extension specialist who will inspect your hair's condition and discuss with you your desired outcome.
The price will vary based on thickness of your hair, the texture, and the length you wish to achieve. Services for fullness, adding highlights and dimension, or a few flashes of vibrant color can cost considerably less than a lengthening service.
How long does the hair extension service take?
A hair extension application can vary in length of time, depending on the amount of hair you want and the thickness of your natural hair.
The service takes an average of 2-4 hours.
Do I need a haircut after the extension application?
A haircut is required to complete the hair extension service to blend the extensions with your natural hair and create a beautiful, natural looking style.
The haircut price is not included in the quoted price for the hair extension service.
What if my hair is colored, permed, or relaxed?
If you color, perm, or relax your hair it is important that you have this done one week prior to the application of your extensions. We strongly recommend that you return to Champagne Salon for all chemical services while you are wearing Champagne Salon extensions to ensure that professionals familiar with the Great Lengths extensions are performing the service.
With hair extensions, will I be able to blow dry, straighten, or curl my hair?
Hair dryers, curling Irons, flat irons and hot rollers are safe to use with hair extensions. Be prepared for your regular styling routine to change - longer, thicker hair does take more time to style.
Do not lay curling or flat iron directly on the bonds, work the tools below the bonds.
How long will my hair extensions last?
The Great Lengths hair extensions will last approximately three to six months, depending on individual hair growth and the type of service done.
Most of our clients average time is 41/2-51/2 months.
How is the hair extensions removed?
Hair extensions require professional removal by appointment with your Champagne Salon extensions specialist. Removal can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour based on the number of extensions and the maintenance of the extensions during wear. An hourly fee is charged for removal.
Will any of my hair extensions fall out?
Some extension loss is normal and to be expected.
