FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Can I Return them?
Human Hair is a Final Sale product with no refunds or returns. Be sure you want extensions before you get them. If you are having trouble adjusting to them I will remove them free of charge. I will not return your money. You paid for a service and the sale is final.
What is a Move Up? What is the Cost?
Before you leave your Installation Appointment you should schedule a Move Up Appointment in 6 -8 weeks. Arrive with CLEAN, Dry hair with minimal/no product in it. This is a maintenance appointment. The beads will be removed and the wefts taken out. New beads will be installed and the extension weft will be sewn back in. At this time you may want to add a few more wefts of hair, change some colors, or even get all new hair. Move up of One Row is $150 and takes about one hour. Two rows is $250 and takes about two hours. Three Rows is $350. Adding extra hair is extra $. The hair with proper care should last 6 months easily, ( some have theirs last a year). With move ups / Maintenance Appointments every 6-8 weeks.
Will they Damage my Natural Hair?
No extension method is completely damage free. It is up to the Extension Artist to use good judgement. This method has been the most gentle I have found. It is much less weight and more gentle on your hair than clip ins. If you are careful with your hair and use proper products and only have them removed by an Experienced Extension Stylist then your hair will continue to grow in spite of the extensions. Always contact me ASAP if you have an ISSUE, a tangle, a Question, Anything that makes you worry, TEXT ME. I cannot help you if you do not let me now there is an issue. I will do everything I can to get you in within 48 hours.
Beaded Row Method vs All the Other Methods
In my opinion installing and wearing extensions for 14 years this method is my favorite. Here is my take on all the other methods I am experienced and certified in:
TAPE INs are similar in their LOOK because they are a thin weft and lie flat to the head, I have had them tear hair out on many clients, especially very fine haired clients. In some people they just don't want to stay in and fall out after a few weeks. They are very time consuming to remove and re tape and reapply. Getting the sticky tape completely out of the hair and off of the tabs is very difficult any time consuming. They can be uncomfortable and start to show at the top almost immediately. Great for wearing just a few weeks but not for long term. The hair quality is not the best either.
FUSION is an older method that has worked very well for some people. It takes up more space on the head by using individual strands (100-250 pieces of hair) and doesn't always look natural, it can look stringy if not enough hair is used. Your natural hair can thin out after using this method due to the constant stress on the hair follicles, and they are spaced all over the head. The maintenance for Fusion is 3-4 months, up to 6 months. This is the most convenient method for some people. You need to buy new hair each time. I am certified in HairDreams which I have found to have the most amazing hair quality. Their bond is not keratin and does not FUSE to your natural hair, it is a patented polymer that wraps around your hair and forms a tight bond, easily removed with the proper removal solution.
KLIXis a method that uses wefts and the beads are attached to a silicone strip at the top. The wefts are thin so you need 3-7 rows to get the fullness I can get with 1-2 rows of NBR. The klix had a tendency to slip out easily especially in Fine or oily hair and I was having to work clients in to "fix" a bead every few weeks.
MICRO LINKmethod is the most popular now but uses the strand by strand hair, it can look stringy (like spaghetti) and pieces can fall out. The beads made of copper can damage (cut) the hair, using aluminum and aluminum lined with silicone minimizes that problem. But they still take up a lot of real estate on the head. Making it difficult to pull up your hair in a ponytail or not see the connection site when the wind blows.
I've also doneSHRINK LINKS and those never seemed to stay in for me.
If you are doing FUSION then HAIRDREAMS has the BEST quality hair on the market, it is VERY EXPENSIVE but it lasts a very long time and is the most tangle free. The attachment is NOT Keratin, it is actually a polymer/plastic and it wraps around the section of your hair when it is installed, it is not FUSED to it like the KERATIN FUSION Methods.
NBR (Natural Beaded Rows) is the method I was certified in 2014. It changed everything ! I loved it! I used it on ALL my clients and they loved it too! After they came back a few times for their move up appointments, they had some concerns and so did I with this Method. I was not sure if it was Operator Error (me) or just something that everyone experienced. I had heard complaints from other stylists about these same issues so I decided to find a BETTER way to do Beaded Rows Extensions. In 2015 I was blown away again! I saw The Kacey Welch Method which solved ALL the problems I was experiencing with NBR. (Previously NBR had solved all the problems I was experiencing with all the other methods). I have previous NBR clients who have come in and I have explained WHY I chose my new method and they are excited about trying it and the response has been very positive from everyone. No more red bumps, No alopecia or pulling or pain at the first and last bead which can happen if beaded rows are installed improperly.
I am able to keep all of the hair colors in stock. This means I don't have to do special orders and you don't have to wait for your hair. In-Salon Consultations Are NOT necessary anymore. If you want another row or to add more hair on your next visit, just say so and it is done.My hair is preWashed and checked with a computer at the supply house before it is shipped to me. There are no bad batches to worry about. This hair is processed gently and carefully and there is NO SILICONE coating to mask cuticle running in the wrong direction or no cuticle or dry over processed hair. It is Indian, the best quality available. I am looking into a few Slavic Hair suppliers and this is great for those very fine straight haired BLONDS that don't want the texture of Indian Hair. Slavic or Russian Hair is Very Fine and Soft.
If you just got a very short blunt haircut (or a pixie cut) and your hair is extremely thick then extensions are not a good option, honestly. If you want to lengthen the sides (over your ears) of a shorter cut then tape ins are best for that. You can create an a-line bob shape to give the illusion of length while your natural hair grows. I don't do tape ins.
Extremely Curly Hair that Tangles easily does not do well with this method of extensions. The Extension hair is not that curly so you would have to straighten your hair or curl/wave the extensions after they are dry, in order for the two textures of hair to blend. I have not found any Very Curly Textured Hair that is up to my Standards, sadly. My INDIAN hair has a natural wavy texture which can be a little frizzy, it gives more of a Textured Feel. I love it! It Holds a Curl like a Dream and AIR Dries with a Gorgeous Natural Wave!
THE KACEY WELCH METHOD
There is NOT one method that works for EVERYONE. This method works for most people and I prefer to help women with fine and thinning hair or medium textured hair that want thickness and length. There is nothing wrong with the above methods, I just prefer to do THIS method. With my experience this is the most comfortable, damage free, easiest to care for and natural looking method on the market. Don't you deserve the Best? I think so! I can't wait to meet you!
COLORING YOUR NATUAL HAIR
Have your colorist color your hair just prior to getting your Installation or your move up. The last few inches of your hair is what I need to be perfect. That is the part I blend with the extensions when installing. You do not need to remove your extensions to have your color done, work around them. Isolate them so they do not get color or toner on them. This is easy to do but check with your colorist first to be sure they are comfortable with this I'm happy to give you names of colorists that I work with. If you do not get your color done before your move up, wait about one week after your install or move up to do that. Your extensions will be tighter the first week so wait so it is more comfortable for you.
