Of all the questions I hear regarding hair extensions this is by far the most popular one. It's the first step into hair extensions, establishing a budget to have them installed and maintained. Although the information I am providing is strictly for my business and it varies week to week depending on the hair supplier, texture, length and color this will give you a basic idea from which you can decide if this process will be affordable for you.
First let me address the primary variables in installing hair extensions. The methods that I provide are Fusion, Beaded, Tape-in and Clip in and Halo extensions. Within each of those installation methods are quite a few options. First of all how long do you want the hair extensions to be? The longer it is, the more it costs. Secondly what texture is your natural hair? Straight, wavy, curly, in-between? Third, how dense is your hair? Fine, medium or thick? Forth, what color is your hair? Bleach blonde, brunette, buttery blonde, red head? Lastly we will decide on a proper method of installation based on the previous assessment.
For the following assessments of cost I will be using 14" straight brunette hair as an example. Keep in mind that anything longer, blonder or textured will raise the cost and possibly limit your method of installation.
All of these prices include the hair, the installation, a care and tips sheet and a extension brush.
