How does that girl maintain those beautiful, long, flowing Cleopatra locks? Perhaps, like Cleopatra, she got off to a good start with hair extensions? But you don’t have to be a celebrity or even Egyptian nobility to achieve that stunning look.
We at Stephanie Pollard have built an outstanding reputation as hair extension experts in London. We can style extensions for you that can give your hair instant length and volume.
It’s true, hair extensions are popular with celebrities, but they are surprisingly affordable, easy to use and absolutely natural looking.
Naturally, you get what you pay for. Synthetic hair is the best and cheapest option if you’re looking to try out a new style or wear extensions for a special occasion. But if you want to be able to treat them as though they were your own hair and to leave your extensions in for a long time, you will need to pay the extra for real human hair.
Hair extensions should look perfectly natural and blend in with your own hair. Synthetic doesn’t last as long as human hair and it can be damaged by heat when styling. The human variety is more expensive, but it will definitely look a lot more natural and last much longer. Remy hair is considered to be the finest type of human hair that you can buy. It is aligned perfectly and the cuticles are left intact, making the hair look wholly natural in appearance. And then there are extensions made from temple hair, the most expensive of all, mostly worn by celebrities and the wealthy – though they’re not totally out of reach for those prepared to spend on style and luxury.
Our London studio offers hair extensions using different methods of attachment. Bespoke single bonds are small strands of hair mixed to match 100% the texture and the colour of your hair; Volumeze (tape hair) extensions offer a fuller look, adding colour and length too; while Monofibre extensions are acrylic strands hand-mixed to match your own colour.
The best hair extensions should blend in perfectly with your natural hair. The best way to achieve that is by having your hair cut once the extensions are in. Extensions can also be coloured, curled, washed and styled just the way you would your own hair.
If you’re in London and you’re considering that striking new look, please call us and book a consultation for a quote.
