When it comes to popular hairstyle trends, the en vogue styles seem to change more frequently than the weather. That’s why so many of our clients love hair extensions – you have the freedom to change your look without the dreaded process of growing out that ultra trendy bob.
There are a lot of common questions we get at the salon about hair extensions. There are many types and styles used across different salons, and if that doesn’t make it confusing, the common ‘old wives’ tales about hair extensions can really throw you for a loop. We thought we’d tackle a few of these questions and give you all the facts you need.
First, many people believe that hair extensions must be worn in the same ‘Kardashian’ style, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. High-end extensions can be cut, colored and styled just like real hair and our highly trained stylists customize your look just as if they were styling your own luscious locks. In fact, our clients use hair extensions to achieve a variety of looks – both for volume and length. When a properly trained stylist applies your extensions and helps you care for them, hair extensions can provide a drastic increase in stylistic freedom. At MK Hairdressing Studio, our team of hair experts is well versed in hair extension application and styling and can give you the luxurious locks you’ve always desired.
Natural Hair Extensions vs. Synthetic Hair Extensions
At MK Hairdressing Studio in Irvine, CA, we are proud to offer the finest hair extensions made from real, natural human hair. When it comes to the quality of hair extensions, you tend to get what you pay for. There are many variables that affect the price of extensions including the quality of the hair and amount of hair desired (in both thickness and length). Extensions made with natural human hair are the highest quality and can last a long time with proper care. Both synthetic and human hair extensions look natural, but real human hair gives you and your hair stylist more styling options.
Natural human hair extensions have a much longer shelf life than their synthetic counterparts and also allow you much more versatility from a styling standpoint. With natural hair extensions, you have the freedom to color, cut, and style their hair as if it were your own.
There are many methods used to apply hair extensions, including fusion or bonded hair extensions, weave-in extensions, and tape-in extensions. MK Hairdressing Studio only uses high-end natural human hair extensions and our stylists are experts when it comes to fusing individual keratin-dipped strands to your natural hair.
Styling your Hair Extensions
Extensions allow you to follow the latest trends, or blaze your own trail and start a trend of your own. The easiest ways to customize your locks include:
- Styling: Hair extensions open up a world of styling options. Ask a stylist at MK Hairdressing Studio about faux bangs, braided layers & headbands, and more. Almost any style is within reach with the wonders of hair extensions.
- Cutting: Cutting hair extensions may seem counterintuitive as their intended purpose is to extend the length of the hair, but cutting the extensions greatly expands styling options. It’s only natural to want to change your style from time to time, and hair extensions give you that freedom. Stylists can easily cut dramatic layers, add bangs, or simply clean up loose ends that are damaged from over-styling with heat tools.
- Coloring: Color trends are immensely popular amongst celebrities right now, and at MK Hairdressing Studio we do not see this trend fading any time soon. Natural human hair extensions can open doors to styles you never thought possible. Extensions give the user the freedom to change their color every few months or to match the hottest color of the season.
