Frequently Asked Questions
Are Great Lengths Hair Extensions suitable for everyone?
Hair extensions are a cosmetic procedure and they should be applied to healthy hair. Hair must be at least 5 – 8 cms in length to provide comfortable attachments. There are some medical conditions that may make a minority of clients unsuitable for extensions so at The Style House Cork we offer a free, no obligation consultation.
Are human hair extensions better?
Great Lengths only use 100% human hair because it behaves like your own real hair. Human extensions are better because they create a more natural look and effect. This means the extensions can be styled using heated tools and straighteners, as well as being professionally coloured and permed. They are also suitable for most lifestyle activities. So there really are no limits to what you can do when wearing Great Lengths extensions.
Will the Great Lengths Extensions damage my own hair?
No. If hair extensions are attached by a professionally trained stylists and they are properly maintained by the clients, Great Lengths extensions should not damage your hair. The hair is 100% natural and the bond has been formulated using a special blend of polymers that replicate the molecular structure of keratin. Keratin is a protein from which natural hair is made so if your extensions are maintained in the recommended way, no problems should occur.
How long should the hair extensions last?
By following the simple maintenance programme, extensions can last up to 5 months using the Classic and Cold Fusion systems and up to 4 months with the Fast Fusion system.
There have been stories in the media about the unethical practices of some hair extension manufacturer. Should I be concerned about Great Lengths?
Absolutely not. Great Lengths prides itself on being 100% ethical and 100% traceable hair. They recommend anyone interested in hair extensions to research where the hair has come from. Great Lengths hair is Indian temple hair and because they are the only extension company to process theirr own hair, they confidently guarantee the traceability of ever strand.
Are hair extensions expensive?
At the Style House we will offer you a full consultation to discuss your hairstyle requirements. Only then will we be able to give you a price for your new look and this can be tailored to suit your budget. Great Lengths hair extensions can last up to 5 months with the correct maintenance and care and, as they are 100% human hair extensions, they can be styled just like your own hair.
How long does it take for hair extensions to be applied?
This depends on how many extensions you are having and the application system being used. For example with either the Classic or Cold Fusion system you can have half a head of extension applied in approximately 2 hours. However, with the Fast Fusion method this can less than an hour! We will be able to discuss this with you further at your consultation.
Are hair extensions difficult to style?
Because Great Lengths extensions are 100% human hair they can be treated in just the same way as your own hair –straighten, curl, perm and even colour .
Do I have to get a full head of extensions?
You can have as many extensions as you need to achieve the look you want – even a few simple strands can make a huge difference. Either a splash of colour or add a little more volume. The possibilities are endless.
How can I remove the extensions?
You will need to come back to the salon where we have the specially formulated Great Lengths removal gel. When applied this gel gently breaks down the bond and with the removal tool, we are able to slide the bond down your own hair with no damage to your own hair.
What will my hair look like when I have the extensions removed?
Once you have had your extensions removed, your hair needs to be washed and conditioned with the Great Lengths products to clean away and residue from the removal gel. Your hair will be completely undamaged by the extensions and look a little longer than you remember. Once you have experienced Great Lengths hair extensions, we are sure you will not be able to live without out them!
