If you’re considering getting hair extensions in Canberra, you’re in the right place! Hair extensions are a specialised service that deserve specialised attention… and that’s exactly what we offer at Canberra Hair Extensions in Dickson. We advise on, supply and install a full range of high-quality temporary and permanent hair extensions including, keratin bond extensions, tape extensions, beaded weft extensions, clip-in extensions, halo extensions and ponytail extensions.
In this article, we walk you through exactly what to expect when getting hair extensions at Canberra Hair Extensions, so you can feel confident and prepared for your appointment.
Step 1: The consultation
The first step to getting hair extensions at CHE is an in-depth consultation. A consultation is essential for several reasons.
- It allows you to meet your hair stylist, discuss your desired look with them, and have them assess the condition of your hair.
- During your consultation, your stylist can explain the types of hair extensions we have available, detail how they attach, and show you samples of hair colours and lengths to choose from.
- Based on the outcome of your consultation, your stylist can provide you with an accurate quote for your hair extension application.
Ultimately, a consultation ensures you know which hair extensions will work best for your natural hair type, budget and lifestyle. It also helps you prepare adequately before getting your hair extensions, resulting in a more satisfying outcome.
Consultations are $50 and $25 of this fee is redeemable on your initial appointment if you make a booking on the day of your consultation.
Step 2: Securing your booking
Once you’ve chosen the type of hair extensions you’d like and feel confident to proceed with the service, it’s time to take the next step in your hair extensions journey and lock in your appointment! First, we match your colour and set the hair required for your extensions service aside. If we don’t have the extensions you’re after, we can usually order them into the salon with a two-business-day turnaround time.
Next, you can choose your appointment date and time and pay a deposit to secure your appointment. We require a 50% deposit, with the balance payable at the time of the extension’s service. At Canberra Hair Extensions, AfterPay and ZipPay are available for our permanent hair extension services.
Step 3: Appointment day
On the day of your hair extensions appointment, all you need to do is come into our Dickson hair salon and we’ll take care of the rest! The exact process that follows depends on the type of hair extensions you’ve chosen. However, to create a perfect blend, it typically includes your stylist washing, blow-drying, styling, and trimming your own hair before installing the extensions. Of course, we take extra care when doing the trimming part, as we totally understand that the end goal is usually to have long, luscious hair of your own!
Once your extensions are in, we’ll do any cutting in that’s required for them to blend perfectly with your own hair. We’ll then style them with some beautiful waves to reach the final perfect result. During your appointment, your stylist will also go over everything you need to know about taking care of your new extensions at home to get the absolute most out of them.
Step 4: Maintenance
At Canberra Hair Extensions, your hair happiness is our mission. If you have any questions or concerns in the first few days after having your hair extensions installed, we encourage you to get in touch with us so we can work with you to ensure you love your hair!
The recommended time to visit us again for a maintenance appointment after getting hair extensions can vary depending on the type of extensions you have and how fast your natural hair grows. If you notice any discomfort, damage, or excessive shedding, it’s important you book a consultation to determine if any adjustments need to be made.
