^^^ The finished product of my custom razor blade cut 22 inch Great Lengths Extensions! To see the whole process and some of my favorite hair care products keep reading.
This is all my natural hair before we began. I have pretty fine hair but the length isn’t all that short. I mostly get extensions for volume and a little more length.
Here we go! This is my girl Danielle at my Aveda Salon here in Louisville, Kentucky called NeatBeat. They give you a neck massage and hand massage during every visit. Ummm yes please!
At Neatbeat they only use Great Lengths hair extensions. You can read more about Great Lengths hair and why its the Gold Standard in hair extensions here and also look up a salon in your area that uses Great Lengths. I knew I wanted Great Lengths hair extensions after seeing that almost every celebrity wears this particular brand of hair.
Neatbeat installs Great Lengths using the Cold Fusion method. It is a strand method that is applied by weaving small sections of hair through a micro link tube.
Cold fusion hair extensions does not use heat to apply the hair extensions to your hair. This is a no heat hair extensions method that bonds hair via a ultra sound applicator. It is a more updated extensions method that was created to be a lot gentler on your natural hair.
Neatbeat also does something special in that they cut each strand of extensions into 2 pieces. This not only gives you twice as much hair for your money but it also makes the extension tip thinner and less noticeable and reduces the weight on your natural hair. Less weight equals less possibility of breakage.
And here is the after photo. This was with 3 bundles of Great Lengths hair installed. I bought the 24inch bundles and had Daniellie razor cut them into natural layers.
The Nitty Gritty Info:
Price: This varies by salon but expect to pay a pretty penny. Mine were around $1,500 but with proper care will last me 6 months. This to me is worth the investment now that I have a baby and can’t take 2 hours to get ready every time I want to go out. I also am losing so much hair postpartum that these make me feel like myself again. I love that I can wake up and my hair is ready to go with a quick 5 minute curl or straightening routine.
What to expect: The install takes several hours but there is no discomfort and I love that I can style my hair up or down with these extensions and the bonds are completely not noticeable. Your hair continues to grow as normal and there is no need to visit the salon multiple times having your beads moved back up the hair strand. Instead after the 4-6 months of wear these bonds are removed safely from the existing hair and if desired new extensions are then installed. You can wash and style your hair as normal.
