28 Oct Extensions SOS!
Oh dear. Poor Angelina Jolie has suffered a fate that any extension novice dreads. You are craving that added length, that boost of volume, that subtle tone change and then this happens. This red carpet appearance at the premiere of The Immortals is proof that bad hair can happen to good people! This is why, if you are thinking about adding extensions to your hair post-lockdown, you need to deal only with extensions experts, like the team at Sloans of North Sydney. When it comes to the most glamourous hair in Sydney we deliver the very best.
Hair extensions can help you to add either length, thickness or both to truly achieve the hair of your dreams. If you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge, here are some tips from North Sydney’s extensions experts at Sloans.
Firstly, we have done the hard work for you by choosing the very best products in the industry. We have tried them all and we are proud to exclusively use Great Lengths and Showpony – the two brands we believe give the most natural finish and the most beautiful look and feel.
Great Lengths’ mission is to source, treat and supply 100% human hair extensions of the highest quality in an ethical manner. In fact, Great Lengths is still the only hair extension company that sources and processes its own hair. They also do not use any toxic chemicals in the de-pigmentation and pigmentation process and are able to factually state that there is no negative eco impact from their production process. Each bundle of hair is carefully selected and blended by colour specialists in Rome, to achieve depth and authentic looking colour which looks incredibly natural. They specialise in Remy hair, meaning that all the cuticles are facing the same direction, giving a smooth, tangle-free result.
Showpony Professional is a hair extensions company at the forefront of hair and fashion. Used and loved by celebrities, fashion icons and celebrity hair stylists. Showpony has successfully positioned itself as a leading hair extension supplier, recognised nationally and internationally for its outstanding quality and range of products. Showpony’s mission is to supply real human and synthetic hair extensions that are renowned for superior product quality. They offer a diverse range of colours and lengths which helps to make the product look as much like your own hair as possible.
We also offer two types of extensions with both Bonded and Tape In. Whilst not all bonded extensions are created equal, the ones we have selected at Sloans use quality protein polymer bonds which are attached directly to hair strands either with heat or ultrasound system. Bonds are made from synthetic keratin mimicking the molecular structure of natural keratin found in human hair and skin and maintaining a pH value of 5.5 to be compatible with your hair, scalp and skin. The result is undetectable attachments that are brushable, durable and, most importantly, non-damaging to your natural strands.
Tape in extensions are fantastic for partial work, filling gaps, adding volume, applying highlights and ombre effects, and are especially good for finer hair types. In short, the pre-taped weft of hair is typically sandwiched on either side of the natural hair, giving seamless results in a much quicker timeframe. Most can also be reused and reapplied as the hair grows and are gentler on the hair so a great option to try for the first time.
