Hair extensions are huge right now. In fact bigger than ever! It seems all the hottest hair trends right now require one thing – LENGTH, and lots of it. In order to achieve true ombre hair color, you need long hair. Sexy long waves? You need length. Often, even if you have long hair, most of the time it isn’t thick enough to style the way you want it. Studio 39 clearly specializes in premier hair salon services, all extension types being one of our focus services. Let me explain how we do things.
Hair Extension Consulation
Because of offering all types of hair extensions, we get alot of extreme requests. The biggest is ” Can I get extensions today?” We do carry some of our more popular brunette or blonde colors, but not much. But even if we do have your color, we are a small salon, the likelihood we will have any openings in a 24-48 hour time period for any lengthy salon service is slim. Plus, we have to match your color perfectly before we apply any extensions, and we never use any hair except from our manufacturer. So we order your hair just for you. Now if you need them in a pinch, we can usually express them- but we still have to do a consultation. There is a reason for this;
A) The extensions we use come from a company we trust, and where we have received our certification and our training.
B) Most importantly, we know where this hair is from!! We aren’t just going to go get hair at the local beauty supply store and attach it in your hair. There are plenty of stylists who think because they have been doing hair awhile,they can use traditional bonding glues and do this on caucasian hair. Good luck with that! First of all, they lack the education on what is appropriate for which hair type. We have seen some hot messes because of some BAD extension work out there from untrained stylists. When we correct bad extension work its gets pricey. This falls into extension correction work. If we fix some other salon’s mishap- we charge around $125 an hour. When doing this service, trust me, we have seen it firsthand- don’t look for a bargain. Look for skill and knowledge. And be reasonable, if your hair is 2 inches long all over, how could we possibly blend it? We are skilled at cutting, but that is not even scientifically possible! A minimum of 6 inches of natural hair is needed. We do every type of extensions, but only certain stylists do certain types. Here is a salon “directory” on extension work.
Patricia- skinwefts and locs
Gemy- skinwefts, locs, keratips
Megan- skinwefts, locs, keratips
People often ask what we brand we use. Its not a brand- we by pass “brands” like great lengths or cinderella- and purchase directly from the manufacturer which means YOU benefit in the savings of luxury, silky hair. Even in salons larger than us, there is often only a stylist or 2 that does extensions. It requires alot of knowledge and a high level of professionalism that is difficult to maintain in a large salon. Plus the liability as a salon owner is sooo not worth letting stylists do this service, without the proper training and certification. That’s why you only see this service in privately owned salons, or boutique salons.
