Hair Extensions FAQ – Part 1

Hair extensions are as hot as ever right now.  We get a lot of questions from customers about how the process works for permanent hair extensions, as opposed to clip-in.  Below are a few of our most commonly asked questions from our customers.  Do you have any questions about hair extensions?  Let us know!  We’d love to hear from you!

Q:  Are hair extensions painful?

A:  If applied correctly by a trained professional, there should be NEVER be any pain or discomfort associated with the hair extensions.  A slight awkwardness can be expected on the first night or two of sleeping on hair extensions, but this is due to the new feeling of the attachment. It is also an adjustment to suddenly have long hair, and have to deal with hair around the face while sleeping.  If pain, irritation, or discomfort occurs after having hair extensions put in, consult another professional to remove or adjust the hair, or possibly to redo the application.

Q: Who is a good candidate for hair extensions?

A: Almost anyone can wear hair extensions.  There are, however, a few cases in which it might be advised against, or one method of application may be better than another.  For example, someone suffering with Alopecia would not be considered a good candidate, as well as those taking certain medications, or with genetic disorders causing loss of their natural hair.  You should always schedule a consultation with a professional before having hair extensions applied.

Q: Will people be able to notice that I am wearing hair extensions?

A: It is important to choose a style and color that matches your own natural hair when choosing hair extensions.  When properly put in by a licensed trained professional hair extension stylist, the end result will be very natural.
