There’s a beauty secret which I haven’t shared with you before because it had become an issue. We all have a something, right? Something which we don’t like about our appearance. For me, it’s my hair; fine, polka straight and for some reason it would never grow. Throughout the years I have tried many hair styles and countless products to try and approve the appearance, but I never come close to the results I had only wished for, until now. My quick fix was to clip-in strips of hair extensions to create a longer and thicker look. The problem I found with doing this first, the strips were easy to see and secondly, the clips to attach the extensions were uncomfortable to wear and would regularly pop open, and finally, it’s not a great look taking out your hair at the end of the day.
So when Great Lengths contacted me you can only imagine my excitement. At first I was a little dubious because of the bad press hair extensions have had in the past. But after doing my research I’ve realised how advanced the technology of applying and caring for hair extensions has now become. I also felt confident with being in the hands of the world leader in hair extensions. Great Lengths provide premium pre-bonded and pre-taped hair extensions to over 1,500 salons in the UK & Ireland. Also the hair is sourced from Indian temples;
“Our 100% human hair is sourced in India, during Hindu rituals. Women and men’s hair is voluntarily donated to temples by complete shaving of the head, a process known as tonsuring. We’re committed to ensuring that all of the hair we use is sourced ethically and willingly, and that a fair price is paid. Payment for the hair is then used to support the local community by developing temples and medical services, and supporting charitable causes.
Once the hair is collected, it is treated with exceptional care: handled only by hand at the Great Lengths head office in Italy, to ensure it remains in pristine condition and all hairs are in the correct direction”.
Having two appointments at The Hair Extension Studio in Westbourne, one to find the perfect colour match and the other for application, I think these amazing before and after pictures clearly demonstrate the incredible results. I couldn’t have wished for a better outcome! I have to give a special mention to Marissa for applying my hair extensions to perfection and also for my cupcakes too!
And now? Well I couldn’t imagine life without my Great Lengths hair extensions. It feels wonderful to wakeup with glamours hair and it’s fabulous to only have to style every other day. I thought I’d experience discomfort whist sleeping due to the bonds, but the cold fusion technology avoids this and also allows the hair to lie flat should you wish to wear it up. I would also recommend cold fusion as it’s avoiding heat to the hair during the application process.
There are a few instructions to care for your hair extensions after application but it’s so easy to follow, you can find out all about it here.
