Why hand-tied hair extensions?
With hand-tied hair extensions, there is no heat, glue, or tape. This means no sticky adhesive when applying or removing. There are no polymer bonds, so that means no heat is needed when applying and no harsh removers are placed on the hair when it is time for removal.
Who can wear hand-tied hair extensions?
Because LUNA + IBE + NBR extensions are completely customizable, hand-tied hair extensions can be worn by almost anyone. Clients natural hair should reach the top of their shoulders. Clients layers should be no shorter than the clients cheekbones.
What is the longevity of this method?
Hand-tied hair extensions can be worn for 6-9 weeks after installation. After this time period, the extensions must be taken out and reinstalled.
Are hand-tied extensions good for an active lifestyle?
YES. LUNA + IBE + NBR extensions are seamless so they can be worn in many different styles that are cohesive with an active lifestyle. Braids, top knots, and ponytails are all possible.
Are hand-tied extensions only for adding length?
NO. Thickening services are available as well. This service is great for adding extra fullness to naturally fine hair. This service is also great for filling in short + sparse sides.
How long will the appointment be?
Your first appointment will take anywhere from 2-5 hours.
How many rows will I need?
1 row - for fullness - one row is very low maintenance. It's purpose is not to add length, but to add volume + fullness, as well as, fill in sparse areas.
Are hand-tied extensions damaging?
Honestly, almost everything that we do in the salon can be damaging to hair. The key is the stylist.
