The popularity of hair enhancement techniques has grown exponentially over the years. From
weaves to wigs, infusions to glued in “tracks,” the phenomenon has
finally given women the opportunity to have the hair of their dreams. But with so many options, what’s a girl to do? As some of these techniques potentially cause damage to one’s natural hair, it’s imperative to know what’s out there and possible side effects. Great Lengths Artistic Director, Darren Brokaw, explains how hair extensions can enhance your look without damage to your hair.
1. How are the extensions attached? Are there
different methods? If so, what are they? What type of method would you
recommend for fine hair? Curly hair? Coarse hair? Ethnic Hair?
When you decide to try Great Lengths Extensions, your first
step is to meet with a Great Lengths Certified stylist for a
consultation. Once the desired result is determined, your stylist will
be able to determine the colors, length and quantity of strands that
are needed. Single strands are applied approximately 1.5 cm distance
from the scalp by either the Classic or Ultrasonic machines. Assuming
lengthening your hair is the objective, the average application time is
4 to 6 hours. All Great Lengths methods are designed for every hair
type. Therefore, the “appropriate” method is not based upon hair
“type,” rather it is based upon desired result.
