So.Cap. Human Hair Extensions can be the perfect answer for growing your hair out.  One year ago, Lauren came in with shoulder length hair

We did 120 strands of keratin tip hair extensions to add length.

Now, one year later, Lauren and I were amazed at how much her real hair had grown out!  This time we only needed 100 strands to add length because the weight line of the bob had grown out.

Subtle Caramel Highlights

For brunettes wanting a little change, add a little dimension with subtle caramel highlights or ombre color! 

To give Kate more dimension, we darkened her root color, then foiled in some highlights and hand painted some of her ends.

For Ashley, we created more dimension with a rich dark chocolate brown root shade and commitment-free ombre tipped ends.

By popular request, I filmed another tutorial video on creating loose waves with the curling iron.. this time using the spring of the barrel instead of just wrapping.

Key Points:

Always start with a heat protectant, such as Moroccan Oil.

I also use some BB Does It All Spray for additional heat protection and hold.

Insert the curling iron at the top of the strand and work it down.. instead of inserting at the bottom and rolling up. VERY important if you want a consistent wave.

A 1” barrel size curling iron gives the best results even for very long hair.

Adjust the heat and size of your strands based on how thick/fine your hair is.  Coarser dense hair can withstand more heat and smaller sections, while fine hair requires less heat and may use larger sections.

Use a mirror to check the back of your hair for any strands you may have missed. 

For better hold, wait for your strands to cool a little bit before finger combing or brushing them out.

Finish up with your favorite hairspray.. mine of course is Davines Crystal Fixative (for wizards ;))
