Hair Extension Makeovers by Ann Marie Walts

Certified for 11 years

8/10/2017

The Loft Salon Studio is THE place for hair extensions. I got Great Lengths extensions and I’m so in love with my hair!

I can’t remember the last time I felt this beautiful or happy with my hair. I’m in the military and over the past few years my hair has succumbed to the constant abuse and wearing it in a bun every day had made it thin.

Fast forward to my installation- I have the most lush and long hair! I truly feel like a brand new woman! Ann Marie is such a professional- she listened to me and knew exactly what I wanted, and didn’t try to push me to do anything I didn’t want. I spent the whole day with her chatting and laughing.

She color matched my blonde hair perfectly to my extensions, and educated me on every facet of the process. Don’t underestimate what extensions can do for you-I truly feel like it was worth every penny and if I take care of it, I know it will last. Ann Marie’s work is skillful and talented. I’ll be a client for life!!! Thank you Ann Marie!!

I can’t express enough my gratitude to Anne Marie or recommend her highly enough.
You’ll realize how much confidence you’ve been robbing yourself of for not going to her sooner!
Best salon experience of my life.

Best Hair Extensions For Your Hair Type 

  

Hair Extensions are sometimes misunderstood that they are only for adding more length to create a long hairstyle.

Hair extensions can be safely worn…even if you have fine hair. 

 Industry Recognition

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.

Poorly applied hair extensions are the most costly.

Types Of Hair Extensios Offered

  • 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.

Tape Hair Extensions

  • GL Apps (Tape Hair Extensions) or HotHeads Tape Extensions are:   Fast, invisible, and the very best hair.  GL Apps are the first smart extensions. At last there’s hair thickening and hair extensions as smart as many of the things that make our lives sharp, lively and easy. “GL” stands, of course, for Great Lengths, and for the top quality that Great Lengths offers.  “Apps” means Application.

Clip In Hair Extensions

  • Clip In Hair Extensions –  The convenience of having me color match your hair will make it easier for you to have a set of clip in hair extensions that will be the perfect match!

Wigs

  • Wigs! – Why not accesorize you “wardrobe” with a beautiful wig.   Wigs are fashionable and a really fun & fast way to change your hairstyle.

Who is not a candidate?

If you suffer from extremely thinning hair, and can see your scalp; then you will not be able to get hair extensions.

Why?

It is because if you can see your scalp then the hair extension attachments will show.
