Are human hair extensions suitable for everyone?
Hair extensions are a cosmetic procedure and they should be applied to healthy hair. Hair must be at least 5 - 8 cms in length to provide comfortable attachments. There are some medical conditions that may make a minority of clients unsuitable for extensions, which is why we offer a free, no obligation consultation. At this stage the client's suitability can be ascertained and the salon can be confident they can produce a high quality result.
Are human hair extensions better, and why?
Here at Amo Capelli we only use 100% human hair because it behaves like your own real hair. Human extensions are better because they create a more natural look and effect. This means our extensions can be styled using heated tools and straighteners. They are also suitable for most lifestyle activities. So there really are no limits to what you can do!
Will hair extensions damage my own hair?
No. If hair extensions are attached by a professionally trained stylist and they are properly maintained by the clients, all of our systems of extensions will not damage your hair as long as they are looked after properly. Our hair is 100% natural and the bond (keratin wax/microloop/nano ring) has been formulated using a special blend of polymers that replicate the molecular structure of keratin. Keratin is a protein from which natural hair is made so if your extensions are maintained in the recommended way, no problems should occur.
How should I look after my hair extensions when they're in?
Aftercare guidelines differ depending on the method of application. Simply follow the guidelines set out on your consultation form and the advice explained to you in detail by your trained stylist.
Are hair extensions expensive?
We will offer you a full consultation to discuss your hairstyle requirements. Only then will we be able to give you a price for your new look and this can be tailored to suit your budget. Our hair extensions can last up to 4 months with the correct maintenance and care. There are also payment plans available which can be discussed at your consultation.
How long does it take for hair extensions to be applied?
This depends on how many extensions you are having and the application system being used. For example a half head on medium to fine hair 2 - 3 hours including a cut & style. A full head can take maximum up to 5 hours depending on the thickness of your hair.
Are hair extensions difficult to style?
Because our extensions are 100% human hair they can be treated in just the same way as your own hair -straighten, curl, even colour, but normally colour shouldn't need to be done as your hair will be colour matched. However, we do recommend using our Hair Extension aftercare range of products to help keep the hair in tip top condition.
Do I have to get a full head of hair extensions?
You can have as many extensions as you need to achieve the look you want - even a few simple strands can make a huge difference. Either a splash of colour or add a little more volume. The possibilities are endless...
How do the extensions get removed?
You need to book a removal appointment with your salon who will use the specially formulated removal gel for Keratin Wax or the clamp we used to install the Micro Ring extensions. When applied this gel gently breaks down the bond and with the removal tool, the extensionist is able to slide the bond down your own hair with no damage to your own hair. We also recommend you book in to remove tape extensions. We have a special solution that breaks down the stickiness of the tape so we can remove them safely.
What will my hair be like when I remove the extensions?
Your hair will be completely undamaged by the extensions and look a little longer than you remember. Once you have experienced hair extensions, we are sure you will not be able to live without out them!
