As some of you may know, I have hair extensions in most of the time. I have only been having them done for about 18 months now but I’m so glad I have them as I have aways found my hair very difficult to deal with, especially when it was curly. The company I always go to for my extensions is called Wonderful Hair – and that is certainly what they provide. Whatever you require they can create, they colour match your colour to the colours of real hair that they have and are also able to mix a number of colours together to get the exact colour you want. Before I had my extensions I was under the impression that they were really difficult to manage and that they always get matted or your hair falls out when you get them removed but none of this has ever applied to my hair when I have experienced using Wonderful Hair. I went a got my hair colour matched and decided on a length for my extensions to be (I always go for longer than I actually want as I then get them cut into a style – always better to cut down than to wish you had it a bit longer!) After the colour match process, they can have the hair ready so quickly as it is all bonded in house. I had 1 week between my colour match and my application and they managed to whip up 250 bonds which were a mixture of 3 different colours in total!
Some facts about Wonderful Hair if you’re considering getting some done:
WONDERFUL HAIR premium hair Extensions: VOTED #1 for authenticity, Quality & consistency
- Every strand is the same length with no Split Ends
- No tangling, breakage or shedding
- Will not lose vibrancy or shine over time
- Hair will not “crawl” or “bunch up”
- No need for excessive leave in treatments to maintain softness or control
- Colour will not fade in time
- Double drawn
They are also available in 3 different lengths, 40cm, 50c, and 55cm so you have the control to achieve the exact look you want. This time I went for the 40cm which is still pretty long but manageable for me with my specific lifestyle. To check out some photos of extensions that Wonderful Hair have applied check out their Instagram by clicking here.
The application time can vary depending on how think your own hair is and how many bonds they are putting in, mine takes a hefty 4-5 hours from start to finish but then anyone who has seen my hair when it is curly knows how much hair I actually have and that it is quite thick so I need a lot of bonds. For most people it takes about 2 hours and is completely pain free. The actual technology behind it is really clever and I still don’t quite understand how it’s done but they use a Cold Fusion Technology that bonds your hair to the extension using ultra sound – they place the extension where it is needed and the tool that fuses it all together is on a timer and bleeps once they bond is complete. Totally pain free to you and your hair. Photos in this post show the various different stages of having hair extensions – if you’re considering it then I would definitely recommend checking out Wonderful Hair as I have been using them for ages now and never had any problems with them. They also tell you which special shampoo and conditioner you should use in order to keep your extensions looking their best and are happy to offer help and advice if you ever need it. Check out some photos of when I went to get my extensions applied recently and for more information visit www.wonderfulhair.co.uk.
The photos show all of the individual bonds that are applied to my hair and the machine used to do so. Also, the salon that I had mine applied in is at Wonderful Hair HQ and is so comfy, plus they bring you cups of tea whilst you get your hair done which was an added bonus!
