If you are “price shopping”…you will want to read this.
The thinness or thickness of your hair, color and or texture are all factors that will contribute to you experiencing what hair extensions can really offer.
Hair Extensions are sometimes misunderstood that they are only for adding more length to create a long hairstyle. Many of the makeovers that I have provided, have included fixing a bad haircut or fixing a chemical “mishaps”.
The best hair extensions for your hair type will be professionally applied extensions that respect your own hair’s density. This is crucial to the health of your hair, and ensuring that you will experience wearing hair extensions comfortably.
Types Of Attachments
Micro-bonding is a method of customizing the size of a keratin fusion attachment prior to installation. This is recommend for most hair densities that are fine to medium. See Micro-Bonding Video
Thermal Fusion- The Great Lengths 3200 Thermal System is our classic application method and has become the standard by which all other hair extension systems are judged by.
The Great Lengths 3200 Thermal applicator tong is heated on one side. The temperature, which is approximately the same temperature as the lowest setting on a standard curling iron, is used to soften the Great Lengths hair extension bond so it can be moulded around the client’s natural hair. With this technique, round bonds are achieved which create a more voluminous result.
Unlike other systems, where glue guns and wax melting pots are used, the 3200 applicator allows for very clean and precise application. The result is undetectable attachments that are brush-able, durable and, most importantly, non-damaging to the client’s natural hair.
Ultrasonic Cold Fusion- Technology is the passion of Great Lengths International, and the Ultrasonic 5000 method is the result of that passion. This “cold fusion” method uses no heat. Ultrasound vibrations soften the Great Lengths hair extension bonds so that it can either be moulded into a rounded bond for volume or wrapped around the hair to form a flat, seamless bond.
Extension Technicians and their clients are raving about the Ultrasonic 5000 which is able to produce attachment sites that flow seamlessly from the client’s natural hair into the Great Lengths hair extension strands. Just as resilient as the 3200 Thermal method and with even quicker application, the Ultrasonic 5000 can accomplish amazing results for clients with extremely fine, thin hair.
Unlike other systems, where glue guns and wax melting pots are used, the 5000 applicator allows for very clean and precise application. The result is undetectable attachments that are brush-able, durable and, most importantly, non-damaging to the client’s natural hair.
The Great Lengths Ultrasonic 5000, simply put, is the world’s finest system for the application of human hair strands.
“GL” stands, of course, for Great Lengths, and for the top quality that Great Lengths offers. “Apps” means Application. What do we mean by that? Quite simply: GL Apps are applied to your hair – without any form of external unit. Quickly, simply and invisibly

Not all hairstylists level of “expertise” are equal when providing and or installing hair extensions.
I speak from professional experiences of being sought out to correct poor hair extension applications.
