Frequently Asked Questions
What method is used?
We use The Grace Hand Tied Method, which a form of Hand-Tied Extensions. The process is done by creating a track using beads and string, following by sewing wefts of hair onto the track. This technique creates a seamless result with maximum comfortability.
What is the investment?
It is difficult to quote pricing on hair extensions without doing a full consultation. If you are interested in a price quote, we recommend filling out our extension form. After doing so, one of our extension specialists will be in contact with you within 24 hours. Extension costs vary from $500-$2,500 depending on your hair goals. The $500 starting point would be one row of 14" brunette hair. The more rows, wefts, length and custom coloring you need, the more the investment increases.
What if they do not have a color to match my hair?
At Brooke Bauer Boutique, we custom color each individual weft so they match perfectly. We will use a blend of shades for a natural look while also performing zone coloring. Zone coloring is applying a different shade to each section of your weft to match seamlessly into your hair. Extensions can also be used to create pops of color you did not have previously.
Will they damage my hair?
There are many extension damage stories out there, so we hear your concern. We promise all of our Extension Specialists have not only gone through training, but also done extensive hours of practice to perfect their application. When it comes to extensions, choosing an experienced professional is key. Each application is customized to the individual guest and their hair type to ensure there will be no pulling or tension.
Does my hair need to be a certain length to receive extensions?
Yes and no. As long as you have enough hair to cover a track you are able to receive extensions. However, if you have extremely short layers we may recommend you choose a shorter length than your original hair goals. It can be difficult to blend short layer without a lot of styling if you would like your look to feel natural.
Are they high maintenance?
As far as everyday styling goes, most of our extension guests feel their hair is lower maintenance. The extensions can hold a style for days which leads to less styling in the mornings. As far as move up reservations go, the extensions need to be adjusted every 6-8 weeks. This is a process where we remove your extensions, wash your hair and reapply them. The time varies per person and how many rows they have, however during your initial consultation we will be transparent with you regarding maintenance costs.
