At Thomas Taft Salon, we offer more than 90 natural colors, including very popular Ombre shades and bright, fun colors to fit everyone’s needs and style. Our extension hair comes in three different textures: straight, wavy and curly and three different lengths. We use the best hand-selected, 100 percent European-type human remy hair for all our extension services. Fusion extensions use hair that is pre-bonded with keratin tips to ensure a healthy, strong and long-lasting extension bond. We can use these extensions on hair that has been highlighted, colored, or virgin hair.
Love the look of having super long hair like a celebrity? Well, it doesn’t have to take years to grow out your hair. Almost every celeb has a secret — extensions!
Extensions can be styled just like human hair, so if the extensions are straight, to create loose waves, curl them with a curling iron or use hot rolls for big bouncy curls. You could also mix straight & wavy extensions to create some nice movement in the hair.
Before applying the extensions, which is done in the same direction as the cuticle of the hair to avoid damage to the hair strand, there is a simple process to prep and clean the hair of all impurities. The extensions are then applied with a special, gentle instrument, and once you’re done, the 100% human hair extensions can be washed, blow dried, flat ironed, and curled as usual. Available in over 90 colors and three different textures (straight, wavy, and curly), your look can easily be changed by removing the extensions with Sol Gel remover, which breaks down the bond. Using the solution and special removal tool, the bond easily slides off the hair, damage free.
Natural hair extensions are a secret tool in the arsenal of leading celebrity ladies. Jennifer Anniston noted that she utilized extensions several times throughout her career for big events in the recent issue of InStyle and Selena Gomez’s new colored locks have spread like wildfire over the internet. Beyonce and Rihanna have also inspired us with their dedication to extensions. Extensions bump up the volume to add luxurious body for ultra movement. Celeb fans of SHE by SO.CAP.US extensions carried by Thomas Taft Salon include Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and more. This may be one hair trend you don't want to miss the bandwagon on!
Commonly Asked Questions Answered By Our Stylists
How Much Does It Cost?
As for the cost, it varies from person to person. “Some people will put them in for volume and length, which would be more costly than someone who might want just a few highlights,” Lourdes, one of our experts says. “Most people wear them 3-6 months before any upkeep is needed. At that time you may need to add a few to areas that may have grown too long and need to be removed and replaced.” Keep in mind that you have to care for these extensions similar to how you would care for your own hair. This keeps them looking better for longer and minimizes damage.
Will It Damage My Hair?
A main concern with getting bonded extensions is that there are complaints online of girls having their hair fall out from them. “There are a lot of reports about how hair extensions damage hair or people complaining of hair falling out,” Lourdes says. “These complaints are the results of stylists that are not trained and certified to provide the service. At Thomas Taft Salon, the Extensions are only applied licensed professionals who have taken the certification course and have been trained by SHE by SO.CAP. USA educators," she explains.
Are Extensions Right For Me?
Lourdes explains, ”It's hardly a secret that most models, pop stars and reality divas rely on some sort of "weave" to give their hairdos more oomph. It's been so exciting to finally let clients experience just why (falsely) full-haired goddesses love to add volume, length and color with temporary, fusion and tape-in extensions. We can match your hair color to add virtually undetectable length and volume or use a contrasting shade to create highlights and/or lowlights without bleach-induced wreckage. Clients are always super surprised at just how easy extensions are to maintain and care for. Clients thought they were going to need major assistance, but these are so user-friendly, even the hair-impaired can do it!"
Can you match my hair color and texture?
We offer extensions that are 100 percent real human hair (which means they can be treated as such — curled, straightened, styled, etc.), available in over 90 colors, three style varieties (straight, curly and wavy) and suitable for any age, ethnicity and personal style from professional to trend driven. Our extension hair is completely customizable to fit the individual. We even had hair that is highlighted and ombre colored, and any fantasy color you can imagine.
