Toronto Salon Services FAQ
How should I prepare for my appointment?
You should arrive with very clean, dry hair with absolutely NO product including oils, conditioners, etc. This is essential to make sure the extensions have the best possible chance at lasting as long as possible.
How long does the process take?
The time varies depending on the desired look. It can take anywhere from 2 to 5 hours.
How much does it cost?
Cost depends on many factors including, length, color, brand, type, quantity, and the condition of your hair. Extensions can range in cost $250-800 for a full head. The price is broken into 2 parts; the cost of the hair and the cost for application.
Can I treat my hair the same as before?
The correct brushes, cleansing, conditioning, and styling products will be recommended. It is very important to follow the recommendations made by your stylist. Some additional care will be required to get the most out of your extensions. This will be explained during your initial consultation. Improper care may result in the loss of some of your extensions and will require you to make more frequent visits to the salon for maintenance.
Can I swim in a pool and go to the beach?
Chlorine and salt water are best avoided. In addition, you will want to avoid any other chemical which may dry the extensions. If you do plan to swim, it will be essential that you use extra precautions to prevent tangling, dryness, and damage. Wear your hair up and try to keep your head above water, or if your hair extensions do come into contact with water, rinse and dry thoroughly.
How about physical activities like tennis, running, or regular workouts?
As with swimming, you will want to take extra precaution. As body sweat is slightly acidic, you will want to keep the hair from contact with your skin if possible. You would be advised that you should wash and condition your hair as quickly as possible after physical activity.
Can I have my hair colored with extensions?
Yes, a professional colorist will have no problem maintaining your hair color. Adding chemical directly to the bonds should be carefully avoided in order to keep them hard and strong in your hair.
Is it normal for some of my extensions to come out on their own?
It is inevitable that, over time, some of your extensions will loosen and/or come out. With the right aftercare, your extensions will have a better chance at lasting longer. If you wear micro-bead extensions, you may keep this hair to be re-attached during your next appointment.
