We work exclusively with Hot Heads® Hair Extensions, which are human hair, adhesive weft extensions that are applied without the need for tools or heat.
How they work
They are designed to lay completely seamless and undetectable in the hair and can be reapplied up to 3 times while still looking and feeling amazing. Guests will get 8 to 10 weeks of beautiful length and volume from each application. They are offered in four lengths and 54 natural and fantasy shades, and may be worn straight or wavy.
Why we love them
Traditional “strand on strand” extensions can be very hard on hair because they put a great deal of tension and twisting on very small sections of the natural hair which can sometimes cause breakage, creating more problems for guests who want longer hair. Hot Heads® extensions are designed in one and a half inch sections so the tension is spread across a larger area. The natural hair is “sandwiched” between two adhesive pieces alleviating the stress and twisting that can cause damage.
Hot Heads extensions are made of human hair and can be washed, blown – dry, and styled with heat implements just like your natural hair. They can be brushed out with a boar bristle or detangling brush starting at the ends and working up toward the scalp with a downward motion being careful when brushing past the tape tabs. A light conditioner will aid in detangling and may be applied from the mid shaft to ends, keeping away from the tape tabs. Styling products may be used, however it is recommended that you do not use products containing heavy oils at the scalp and around the tape tabs to avoid slipping of the extensions. Wear your hair in a pony tail when swimming, exercising or sleeping, and be sure to never go to sleep with wet hair while wearing adhesive extensions.
A professional stylist can color your hair while the extensions are in taking care to avoid getting color on the tape tabs or the extension hair. It is not recommended that guests color their hair at home while wearing tape in extensions.
With proper care, guests can get 8 – 10 weeks of wear from extensions before they must be professionally removed, cleaned, re-taped, and re-applied in the hair. Each set of extensions may be re-applied up to three times before new extensions are necessary giving guests up to 7 months of beautiful increased volume and length.
Most Hot Heads contain 20 pieces per pack which will make 10 complete extensions. On average, it takes about 3 packs of hair to create length. This is determined by the density of your hair. If you have finer hair, you may be able to achieve your desired result with 2 packs of hair. If you have shorter layers, you may need 4 packs of hair to create a blend between the natural hair and the extensions. A stylist consultation will help determine how many packs you will need.
First time guests should make an appointment for an extension consultation. During this time, your stylist will go over length, color, and volume options as well as costs of application and upkeep so you may achieve the most beautiful results. At this time, a payment will be required for your packs of extensions, and they will be ordered. When they arrive, (usually in 2 – 3 days) a follow-up appointment will be made for the application process.
