This experience with Ann Marie has been amazing and with her experience and passion for what she does, it was so easy to put my trust into her work. I’m very happy with the finished product and I love my new hair!
Hair Extension for Fine Hair
Megan reached out to me for hair extensions because she felt that her hair lacked body.
Fusion Hair Extensions can last up to 5 months with proper care.
Researching The Internet
She had been researching hair extensions online for awhile.
Once she reached out to me she had shared…”The internet has been confusing! “
ARE YOU CONFUSED, TOO, ABOUT EXTENSIONS?
Yes! I couldn’t agree more with Megan, that there is so much information about hair extensions on the internet now, that it can simply leave you more confused or armed with misinformation.
What helped Megan was my video about….
Do hair extensions damage your hair?
Types of Applications
What method or hair extension application should you choose for your hair?
Answer: My professional recommendation is not to “go it alone” and get fixated on a certain type without the true professional guidance of a hair extension expert.
Fusion Hair Extensions
Unlike “sew-in” hair extensions, fusion hair extensions can be used for correcting a small section of your haircut.
In this example you will see that this client wanted her bangs/fringe to be thicker and slightly longer.
Benefit = Fixing your haircut or changing up your haircut!
Tape Hair Extensions
Tape hair extensions, when done properly, can be very comfortable, non-damaging, and can last 1 to 1. 5 months with proper care.
You can thicken your hair or add immediate length in as little as 1 to 3 hours!
Tape extensions and Fusion hair extensions are very lightweight and are an excellent choiceif you have fine hair.
If you are new to landing on my site, then let me share with you that every single hair extension photograph was designed & photographed by myself.
Out of the 28 years that I have been providing & designing makeovers…14 years of that I have been designing luxury extension makeovers. Great Lengths are the best, and not because I say so…it’s because they are, and have been for more than 2 decades.
TIME OR MONEY is what you can spend.
So, it really comes down to how much TIME do you want to spend on growing out your hair?
12 hours or 26280 hours (3 years), and the choice is yours.

My “unique difference”
The very unique creative offering that I have, is combination of designing hair extensions makeovers, hair corrections, (and everything on my site…) is that I am also a professional photographer.
The Inspiration to My Artistry
Many years ago, I was very much inspired by a hairstyle article that I had read. It was about a hairstylist that provided makeovers, and then photographed their work.
Boom! Bam! Yes!!!
It was in that moment that I knew that was what I wanted to have happen on a regular basis with my clients.
And now….that is what I have been doing for more than 20 years. My career has been jam packed with some very special highlights.
To date, you will find me that I have been on Mass Appeal’s TV show, as a regular guest several, several times.

2020 Hair Extension Tips – Everything You Need To Know
If you are brand new to the idea of getting hair extensions, then is article is for you. I will help explain what hair extension options you will have to choose from and how long they will last.
A Little History
If I can personally speak directly to you, then it would be remiss of me to assume that you know everything about hair extensions. That is my job. Various hair extension companies have certified me since 2006.
My passion and curiosity about hair extensions started when there was just a little bit of a “buzz” about it, 14 years ago. The very first company that I had “heard” of was Great Lengths Hair Extensions.
Since I had only heard great things about their company, and it was the next “it” service for my salon to offer, it seemed like a good idea to take a class. Where I was in my career, at that time, it was just another specialized service to add to my certifications.
Now, in the present day, my “reasons” of offering hair extensions have changed, and I will talk about that later in this post.
Is Great Lengths The Best?
If you are the type of person that has to try different things, or have enough information presented to believe if “something is the best,” then I am right there with you.
As an educated hairstylist, I am curious by nature and wanted to be 100% certain that Great Lengths was the premium brand hair extensionbrand that they claim to be. So, over the years, I then pursued being certified by:
Pure Hair Extensions
What I have personally experienced is that each brand does have its energetic marketing standpoint, and as a stylist, I have found that the two brands that fit my needs are both Great Lengths and Hotheads.
For Starters or Beginners:
Clip-in Hair Extensions
You can take them in and out when you need to wear them
Price ranges $60 per panel to $300+ for a full set
You are better off choosing to purchase 100% real human hair extensions.
The reason why is that you will be able to wash then, curl them, and style them just like you do with your hair.
Investment (Long term better option than Tape Hair Extensions)
Starting at $600 to $4000+
Exact Price by consultation
Why Fusion Extensions?
Now, let me revisit sharing with you why my “why” has changed about having to have hair extensions as a service today! Way back in 2006, was when I first became certified because extensions were just a “trending” service. So much has changed since then.
As an experienced hairstylist and seasoned hair extensionist, I couldn’t imagine not having extra hair to provide to my guests. It is like having “extra fabric.”
If you choose fusion extensions, then you will be able to experience MOST CUSTOMIZATION.
Attachments (human-made keratin) are tiny and lightweight
That is a reasonable question, and the hardest to answer without having a consultation.
You will find that the internet will give you all sorts of information on this topic. However, many of these resources that like to provide “averages” cannot speak for an individual salon. My salon has invested a lot of time and education.
What is the average price of your extensions? Let’s pretend you needed your car fixed, and you were calling in on the phone to find out “how much.” Just like most diagnostic service-based industries, it is impossible to provide pricing without having you go in person.
The same is true when it comes to getting hair extensions.
You will find that prices can vary from salon to salon, and many prices do.
Tips On – Researching Where to Get Hair Extensions
Before and After photographs can speak a 1,000 words!
What you really are paying for when you decide to get fusion hair extensions will be the attachment!
The beauty about highlighting or adding splashes of colorwith hair extensions is that choosing to have it done this way…..will thicken your hair!
Maybe you have wanted to trytape hair extensions, or some extensions but are a little undecided or shy about it.
The hair is 100% real human hair, and it is reusable up to 1 time (With proper care)
*Please keep in mind that if you are trying to grow out your hair, then you may need to brand new extensions, because the original set will be at the length that we installed them, when we remove them.
Your Service will include:
Choice of one beautiful shade of Tape Hair Extensions
What is your level of frustration with your frizzy hair?
If your frizzy hair has you wanting to just scream, then you are not alone. You do not have to suffer from it any longer, either.
Your Shampoo Matters!
Frizzy Hair Tip #1
Is it necessary to shampoo your hair every day? That will depend on your lifestyle.
Why shampoo matters is when you experience having a professional assessment of your hair type, then a professional hairstylist will be able to determine if your hair’s texture is fine, medium or coarse.
Shampoo For Frizzy Hair & Why
You hair frizzes because it lacks moisture, and that is why it will expand. Your hair is attracted to the humidity in the area, and during the summer months you will find that it can or will become very unmanageable!
Imagine a dry sponge. What happens to it? It will expand.
A good haircare regimen for shampoo and conditioner is a must!
In particular, my studio carried JBeverly Hills Products, and their patented size molecule can actually deliver their healing ingredients into the inside of your hair.
Tips About Conditioners
An awesome “must-have” you should be using is a good leave-in conditioner. The reason why is it will act like a weather-proofing barrier. This type of conditioner is not to replace the one you would use in the shower. Layering your conditioner will not weigh your hair down.
From Taming to Eliminating Your Frizzy Hair!
AWWW….GET RELIEF FROM 2 to 6 months!!
Step away from your flat iron!!!!
If your frustration has you being a slave to your flat iron, then you will want to consider one of the following treatments!Kick your flat ironing habit…scorching your hair is only making your frizzy hair problem worse!
Ask yourself this?
A. Do you like your texture but really simply DISLIKE THE FRIZZ?
B. or…Does your wavy, curly and frizzy hair have you wanting to reach for the clippers to shave your head? (That might be extreme, but you just don’t enjoy doing your hair anymore.)
TIP # 2
Did you answer “A”:
If your answer is “A”, then you may really benefit from getting a Cezanne Smoothing Treatment. It can take care of your frizz up to 100%. It will still let you have your wave, but again..you can wave “goodbye” to your frizz.
Did you answer “B”
If your answer is “B”, and you do not bleach your hair, then you will definitely want to check out Japanese Hair Straightening!
It can last up to 6 months, and it will leave your hair straight!

Maybe you have tried clip in hair extensions, but are looking for a more semi-permanent option? A full set of tape hair can last up to 6 weeks.

Tape hair extensions are wonderful for making your hair look lush, lavish and luxurious. They are also great to experience if you are brand new to hair extensions, and they are reusable.
” Ever since Ann Marie was able to not only fix my hair but make me love my hair again I was addicted to her services . Don’t let the pricing scare you away because every penny is truly worth spent at The Loft Salon Studio!”
There are so many beautiful hair color shades to choose from. Great Lengths tape extensions are 100% real human hair, and because the hair is real; you will be able to style your hair like it was your own. You can curl it, and even braid your hair….no one will know that you are wearing extensions.
Amazing hair color shades
Photograph by Great Lengths
Why tape extensions? You will find that they are at a medium price point. Great Lengths is a luxury line and there is much care that goes into how the hair is prepared. The Great Lengths Factory is in Nepi, Italy. We have actually gone to the factory and have witnessed all of master craftsmen and women in action!
So, whether you have fine hair that is already long, but not thick enough…you would truly benefit from adding some more hair. Your hair needs to be a minimum of about 4.5 inches to start adding believable length. The best part, too, about taped extensions are that they are the fastest application amongst the options that Great Lengths has to offer.
Your hair will be “The Mane Event” on the day of your makeover, your wedding and on off to your honeymoon!

Hair Extensions are the fastest way to beautiful hair! Is your hair currently not making your happy? Did you get a haircut that you were not happy with, and now you regret it? That can be a real bummer, and especially because it can take forever for your hair to grow...
There are different levels of knowledge of understanding, when it comes to “coloring hair”. My professionally expertise, involved formerly teaching for Redken; as a colorist.
Is there really a difference between working with a corrective color specialist, trying an online formulation company or a salon that “offers” hair color?
Coloring hair versus color correcting hair, are two very different things. In my professional experience, my ability to “see color”is grounded by the color wheel versus simply pulling a pretty color off of the shelf, after picking a shade out of a “color” book, and hoping for the best.
Elementary School….but not so elementary!
Color is very much like paint…it is just in a different form. Do you remember being in elementary school?
How do you make orange? Do you remember?
If you came up with:
Red & Yellow = Orange………then give yourself a pat on the back!
Adding extra hair to any hairstyle is a great way to add fullness and volume.
Ann Marie Walts can consult with you to best determine what hair extension option would be best for you and your lifestyle.
Getting hair extensions does not have to be all about length.
As some of the photos that are shown will show, you can see that they can be added for a splash of color or to correct a bad haircut.
With so many options, this is why “one size or price” does not fit all. We really customize our hair designs and look forward to work with you very soon!

The most important step to having beautiful hair, is to be sure to get a hair design consultation. It is important to have a consultation appointment in person. There are so many options to be able to change your hairstyle, that is cannot be handled over the phone.
Photos For Inspiration
One the best ways to communicate is with photographs. It’s ok, too, if you cannot find just one photo. You might find that you may like the hair color of one and the length of another.
When you need help making your blonde hair blonder, you simply cannot go wrong letting us help you with that.
There are many shades of blonde hair. Why it is easier, to let us do your hair is because we have professional hair color & the expertise.
Professional vs Box Hair Color
A huge difference between what we have at the salon, are the strength of the chemicals, and the quality.
Your local drugstores are not able to sell you professional strength hair color.
Why? The reason why is because you need to be licensed to use what is used at a salon.
On a personal note, I was told many years ago this………”Don’t be a hairdresser!”
Now, with almost 25 years of experience, and an absolute passion of providing makeovers….it is sad, sometimes, when our industry still runs up against our profession not being perceived as a “real job”. However, that topic could be a topic for an entire new post.
Now on the topic of having to be “licensed” to use the hair color chemicals that we do….formulating hair color is a form of chemistry!!
We have to understand PH, Developers, and alkalinity.
Chrome nails is the newest and hottest nail trend is fun to wear and was also fun to demo. It is fascinating to watch the chrome naile powder go from a powder from, to making your nails look like a hologram.

Some Fun DIY Tips
As I wear many, many creative hats….one of them has been an Editorial Manicurist. That is a fancy title that means you have to pack your suitcase with nail polish, maybe some glitter and a whole bunch of creativity.
So, where the DIY tips come in?
Once you watch the Mass Appeal Episode, you will find that I share one of my favorite stores to find the fun treasures. The best part is that it is not a “Professional’s Only” resource.
All About You
If you are looking for an extremly pampering experience then you will enjoy our business model. It is unique, in the fact, that ever since 1999….we offer private & individual appointments for all of the services offered.
You are never doubled booked. It can be your place where you can have a “spa-like” experience.
Are you trying to decided whether you should get hair extensions, or are you wearing them and are very disappointed?
Improperly applied hair extensions are the most expensive extensions.
A poor application can cause headaches, and stress on your fine hair.
A Message for Fine Haired Potential Clients:
My heart goes out to you when I, as a professional, have worked with many, many fine haired clients who are so very disappointed with their hair. Your fine hair struggles can be fixed, but need to be handled with care, and especially when getting hair extensions.
What you want to do when seeking out a salon, for hair extensions for fine hair, is to be sure that they can show you actual photographs.
I professionally feel that one, if not the most important part that you are paying for is how the extensions are attached, and how neatly & safely the hair extensions are attached.
It is said that, “YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR”.
I know that I can only speak for myself, and my business; however much of my business has consisted of fixing poor applications from lesser experienced situations.
BONDS TOO BIG….NOT GOOD!
The correction photograph shows bond attachments that were too big and too much hair was applied. It is great to want to have longer and thicker hair, but not at the cost of safety. You do not want to stress your own hair out.
The correction- Done by Ann Marie Walts. The photographs shown are examples of my work. This typed of customized bonding is referred to as “micro-bonding”.
The amount of hair being attached should never weight more than the section of hair that it is being attached too.
Why Choose? Loft Salon Studio?
How To Choose Tip:
It is extremely important to work with a hair salon that offers hair extensions on a regular basis, and can offer you a very detailed consultation.
ONE DESIGN PRICE…….DOES NOT FIT ALL
I have been certified with Great Lengths Hair Extensions for 11 years! They had the best education, out of all of the the other brands that I hold certifications.
Hair extensions take time. There are different types of applications.
Clip In – You clip them in daily or as needed
Tape Hair Extensions (Great for trying out hair extensions or if you are a Bride)
Fusion Hair Extensions (By far-BEST option….ALL THE WAY AROUND)
How many times have you watched a makeover t.v. show?
What is it that keeps you glued to the end of the makeover show? It is always the final after photograph or reveal!
How To Tips:
Maybe you are contemplating getting a makeover or simply making a change to your look?
Create a Pinterest board is extremely inspirational and really can be very, very helpful when communicating to a salon or stylist what your ideas are. Using pictures to verbalize what you want is truly the best way to share your idea
3. Share your DISLIKES! Yes, your dislikes! Be honest and upfront. You will find that the most creative hairstylists are not mind readers. It would be easier if we were, but it does not work that way.
Makeovers are about change. Change can be a bit scary, but does not have to be. As much as you may not know what you will want, it is safe to say that you will and do know what will not work for your hair!
4. Ask for a CONSULTATION!
It is best to work with a salon or stylist that offers a thorough consultation, and especially if you have a few things that you need to change with your look or hair.
As much as you may be tempted…..just like on t.v…….to possibly say “DO WHAT YOU WANT!“; if you have not established enough communication then what you had in mind and what the stylist has in mind………..might be very far apart.
5. Explore….How do you wish your hair could be better?
Ask yourself what bugs you the most because when it comes to working with an experienced makeover artist…..you will have several options to correct what you do not like.
If you are tired of trying every mousse or volume product on the market, then it may be time for you to get hair extensions. Fusion hair extensions can be truly customized to safely to thicken your hair.
FAST FORWARD TO 3:50 to see the customization that I offer:
If you have fine hair, it is so very important that you work with an experience hair extension expert. Hair extensions are always safe to wear when they are properly applied and properly cared for.
Differences Between “Fine Hair” & Thin Hair
Sometimes fine hair and thin hair are confused for each other.
If your hair is so thin that you can see your scalp, then you are not a candidate for hair extensions. However, that does not leave you without any options. Depending on the severity of your problem, you could benefit by learning more about “hair loss solutions”
Fine Hair- The hair itself can be on the “skinny” side. It tends to lack body, and sometimes will be on the straighter side.
Benefits To Getting Hair Extensions
You certainly will feel amazing, and may even find that your confidence level will increase. I have, personally, worn Great Lengths several times and can share with you first hand that I was really amazed at how many times I had received compliments on my hair.
The best adjective that I can give you about hair extensions is this………….the best accessory a women can wear!!
This is a luxurious service and it will leave you feeling just that way.
Once you add hair extensions to your fine hair, the density will feel thicker. Your hair will have more body, and it will look fuller.
Great Lengths is the only extension company in the world that guarantees with documented support that all Great Lengths hair has met the following criteria:
Every strand has been donated willingly and with the full consent of the donor.
The donor has been treated with respect and care.
A fair and reasonable price is agreed for the hair and the money paid to the Temples to procure the hair is used solely for charitable endeavors, not for personal or individual profit.
A company representative procures the hair to cut out unreliable middlemen and ensure full and direct knowledge of the origin of the hair.
Exclusive in-house production process: Used from procurement of the hair to the wholesale selling of the extension to ensure full and documented traceability. Great Lengths International does not work through hair brokers. Great Lengths operates and employs our own sourcing staff and facilities in India so that we are always 100% sure of our hairs source.
Stamped & Branded
You can rest assured that when working with me & my business that you will get real Great Lengths hair. You would think that this would not have to be brought to your attention, however, with all of the consulting that I do; I hear or learn of a lot of different “stories”.
Great Lengths actually has gone the extra step, as they do with so much, and have hot stamped their name into their product. I was estatic when they started doing this, hear in The States.
How else can you be reassured?
Great Lengths has a salon directory, and not everyone gets to be on it. We have to meet their criteria.
PLATINUM SALON status is a special recognition for the frequency that The Loft Salon Studio provides Great Lengths hair extension. Also, too, if you are ever in doubt and need further questions about the business you find; then you can always call Great Lengths.
A bad haircut or messed up haircutcan happen at the hands of someone at home, or unfortunately at a salon.
Interestingly enough, this week, is the reason for this post. I have worked with clients for all different reasons, when it comes to the topic of “haircuts”.
How do you choose?
When it comes beauty, we all choose what, who, & where we want to go, for various reasons:
Maybe it is location
Maybe it is because of a referral
Maybe it is because you can “simply walk in”
Was it the website
Choosing by Price Alone
Scenario 1: FREE
Cutting your hair at home-
I think at, one time or another, we have all taken are hair into our own hands. I have heard stories that this has happened because of either finances, or because of more than one bad experience haircut experience at a salon.
Quick & Cheap —
Let me first say, that I do not feel that just price depicts a professionals ability. When I worked for Redken, I did provided corporate salon education for and to Chains such as:
Chain salons are able to have reduced pricing because of the fact that they are really a huge business. Not all professionals, entering the industry choose to work in privately owned salons, because some of the chains offer employee benefits.
Anyhow, in my experience of working with clients that chose to go for the very “convenient” appointment, found that they did not receive consistent results. Not always, but many “haircut stories” had similarities.
A “Walk – In ” stops by an “Appointment Only” environment–“HOW MUCH????”
What warrants a studio/salon to charge what they feel they are professionally worth? That answer can only be answered by the actual business.
Personal Story: An anonymous consumer, stopped in quickly this week and asked if I take walk in?
Consumer; “Do you take walk-ins?”
Loft: “Well, I always welcome the opportunity to work with a new guest & let me see when my next client is coming in.” Please have a seat at my desk.
Next, I began to take their information, and began to ask questions of what they wanted?
Consumer: ” How much are your haircuts?” Fair enough question.
Loft: I answered them before services were rendered…..instead of just a “yes” I can take care of you.
Conclusion & Client interaction inspiration:
My prices were not a fit for them, however it was how they asked…………. “HOW MUCH???? IT’S JUST A HAIRCUT!!!”
As quickly as they left, I had not tried to “sell why” they should stay but it did leave me with wanting to explore………….is it just a haircut?
Over the last 11 years, of consulting with clients; I have found that most of the time women wish their hair was thicker. When you come in for a consultation, you will be given options and those are at varying price points based on your hair needs and thickness.
Ask yourself….what do I need?
Hair extensions are not just for adding length.
Many times they are for just adding thickness, or to compliment a short hairstyle.
I have been providing hair extensions for 11 years, and it has been for all sorts of situations.
Do you need to “Fix A Poor Haircut”?
Several times, I have had to fix a poor haircut.When it comes to fixing a botched haircut, this solution is a great option to correct just a section.
Maybe you hair was layered too much on one side? Do be frustrated a day longer.
Do you need to add “Non-Chemical” Color?
Using hair extensions to add a splash of “hair color” has a dual purpose. The color will be colorfast & quick but the best benefit is that it will thicken your hair.
Eyebrow sculpting and extensions are more about adding versus taking away.
My friend Melissa is going to be my model and she was a bit nervous because she had had a poor waxing experience. Once I explained to her that is was about building the brow back up.
I am beyond excited to attend the training over the next couple of days. This technique truly intrigues me. Sleek Brows technique can be utilized for eyebrow corrections caused by over plucking, medical conditions and or a bad wax job.
Additionally, it will round out my extension offerings for:
Next, Shampooed and Foiled new blonded with deeper lowlights
Finally….Great Lengths design included 3 different colors to marry her chemical hair color seamlessly to her hair extensions.

Stand back for the ARTIST at work! Ann Marie provides individualized, customized RESULTS that matter, Every time I leave The Loft I am transformed and SMILING. She is a master of her craft(s), which is totally to my benefit! And she loves what she does ,so she rocks it – every time! I would highly recommend this experience for extensions (lashes and hair), color, cuts nails and toes, but only for those people who know they deserve and expect a higher level of service and experience.
Non-chemical highlights are fantastic way to accessorize your hair. Unlike traditional highlights that are done with foils, having your hair color done this way will thicken your hair.
It is very common to automatically associate “hair extensions” with only long hair, however there are so many other uses than the obvious.
Over the last 10 years, I have experienced being a hair color educator and working with “coloring the hair with extensions”.
I have to be honest with you that when I went to a hair extension training that had introduced the idea of hair extensions being less “damaging” than chemical hair color I was put off a bit first, but very intrigued. Partially due to the fact that I was still educating for Redken.
It was my job, at the time, to “eat, breath and sleep hair color”….ha ha. Now, it is a great thing to be offer both types of “hair color”.
Beautiful & Colorfast Hair Color
The hair color trends have really been bold, lately, and just about anything goes. However…….”anything goes” is sometimes the “chemical hair color” right down the drain, sometimes.
Why is it that hair color fades, and especially the bolder hair colors?
It is because of the chemical composition and the sizes of the dye molecules. Red dye molecules are the largest to fit into the hair strand. The “why” could lend itself to a whole science based post of how hair color works, and that will be saved for another time.
Colorfastness of Hair Extensions
In the case of Great Lengths Hair Extensions,I had the opportunity to actual go to the factory in Nepi, Italy to see how the hair is processed and handled.
The handcrafted way that they “hand dye” the hair is absolutely incredible. They use a dyeing process that is much like how cashmere sweaters are dyed. Textile dye colorants are very durable.
Bold hair color?
If you like very bold hair color or a stronger contrast, then I professionally would recommend that you opt for hair extensions over traditional hair color.
Accenting Blond Hair with darker or vivid hair colors
Do you get “highlights” because it give your hair more volume?
Do you get “highlights” because it makes your hair less flat?
Do you get your “highlights” every 6 to 8 weeks?
When you get your “non-chemical highlights” they will last up to 5 months.
They are colorfast
You hair color will be “spot on”
Your hair will be thicker
Opting to trying this hair color technique can be just as affordable as “chemical hair color” if you average out the amount of salon visits that it takes to maintain your “traditional highlight foiling”
