FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Which types of hair extensions are right for me?

For the best results, we recommend that you come in for a consultation before purchasing your hair extensions, at which time our stylists will recommend the best extensions for your hair type. Afterward, we can purchase the hair for you directly from our supplier and set up an appointment time for you to come in and have your extensions put in!

NOTE: All hair and necessary accessories must be paid for at the time of consultation and/or prior to the day of application service.

What types of hair extensions does Pleij Salon offer?

The two most common types of hair extensions requested are fusion(keratin) and Tape-In Extensions (sticker).

KERATIN EXTENSIONS:

The keratin fusion bonds are a very durable long lasting application. The keratin is heated and grabs on to the cuticle (outside layer of hair) to bond to it, which also makes also for easy removal. Application is around 2 to 3 hours depending on the thickness and the look you are wanting to achieve. This application will last you 3 to 6 month with proper care of the hair. You might not know what to do with your hair’s volume, length, and versatility.That’s okay. Wear it up or down, the bonds are easy to hide– especially because they are bonded with clear keratin to your hair strand.

  • Application time: 2 to 3 hours
  • Lasts 3 to 6 months with proper care
  • Available in 3 different lengths: 16-18 inches, 20-22 inches, and 24-26 inches
  • Available in all colors of the Euro So. Cap range to perfectly match your existing hair color (41 natural shades, 14 artistic shades and 6 ombre shades)
TAPE-IN EXTENSIONS:

This brand-new method is a showstopper. Installation is astonishingly fast and the look is shamelessly seamless. Clients are raving about how Tape-In Extensions provide length and volume and blend easily into hair.

Tape-In Extensions are attached to your hair with a double-sided, medical grade tape. The hair lies flat so it does not twist and tangle, which makes our clients with finer hair the perfect candidates! For those clients with very fine hair we can also do a method of single sided tape so your new look feels very natural and blends with your existing hair. These extensions can be reused up to 3 times depending on care and maintenance. Tape extensions need to be adjusted every 2 to 3 months.

  • Application time: 30 minutes to 1 hour
  • May be reused up to 3 times
  • Lasts 2 to 3 months with proper care
  • Available in 16-18 inches and 20-22 inches
  • Available in 41 natural shades, 14 artistic shades and 6 ombre shades.

What type of hair is used in the extensions ordered?

At Pleij Salon we select the highest quality of hair extensions to ensure that they will blend-in and look most natural with your own hair. We use 100% natural Remy hair manufactured in Italy and produced by Euro So.Cap.. and they offer either wavy or straight hair extensions. 100% Indian Remy human hair is being used by salons and stylists all over the world for its ability to maintain a radiant and smooth texture without using synthetic coatings like silicone.

What factors will my stylist consider when deciding which extensions are right for me?

When you come in for your consultation with one of our stylists they will consider the condition, texture and length of your hair. You will also discuss your “hair goals” and work with the stylist to find the best extensions to give you the look and feel that you want while maintaining the health of your natural hair.

You will also discuss your “hair goals” and work with the stylist to find the best extensions to give you the look and feel that you want while maintaining the health of your natural hair.

How much will my hair extensions cost?

It is truly impossible to tell you exactly how much your extensions will cost without a consultation because there are so many factors that must be considered such as the type of extensions you need, the length you want, the fullness you want and the products you will need for maintenance.

It is safe to say that you should be prepared to initially spend a minimum of $300. And this is not for those who do not plan on maintaining their extensions, which comes at an additional cost as well. The price of beauty is high ladies! But we guarantee you will leave looking and feeling fabulous, and you can’t put a price on that now can you?

Why do I have to have my extensions “readjusted”?

It is important to have your hair extensions readjusted every 2-4 months (depending on rate of hair growth) to prevent hair from matting, dreading or even tearing out. This can also cause breakage and compromise the integrity of your hair.

Your stylist will discuss a follow up appointment for readjustment before you rush out of the salon to parade your new, fantastic hair around the city.

What products will I need to care for my extensions?

During your consultation your stylist will go through the tools and products recommended for maintaining your extensions such as a proper brush that is gentle on the bonds while thoroughly detangling hair, sulfate and paraben-free shampoos and conditioners and a deep conditioning treatment.

How much care and maintenance is involved?

Hair extensions aren’t a breeze to take care of, but with the right products and reasonably small amount of commitment your extensions will continue to look and feel fabulous. Extensions are wonderful and fun, but they are something you have to work into your lifestyle. Whether you are willing to set aside a small amount of time every day to maintain their fabulousness or not is one of the largest deciding factors regarding whether hair extensions are right for you.

HAIR EXTENSION TIPS:
  1. Protect your investment by using professional extension care products to keep hair strong, healthy, and shiny.
  2. Tie your hair back at night in a loose ponytail or braid.
  3. Never go to bed with wet hair.
  4. Wash hair as often as necessary to keep it clean and oil free.
  5. Don’t allow hot tools such as curling irons to touch the bonds.
  6. Don’t use any hair products that contain oil, alcohol, or silicone.
  7. Never try to remove the extensions yourself.
  8. Brush hair thoroughly before every shampoo.
  9. Brush hair 2 to 3 times daily.
  10. Have all chemical processes, such as color or perms, done in the salon by a professional stylist.
  11. A silk or satin pillowcase will help keep your hair tangle-free.
  12. After application of extensions, do not wash hair for 48 hours. You must give double-sided tape time to stabilize.
