Hair Extensions - The Process


Below we explain the process having hair extensions put in at the salon.  Depending on the amount of extensions being added you can expect your appointment to last around 2 hours.  If you’re considering hair extensions just call us to book a free consultation at the salon.

  • Initial Consultation

    A trained stylist from Elaine Compton Hair Design will assess your hair, your lifestyle, your expectations and the type of look you are trying to achieve.
    This also give us a great opportunity to explain how to look after your hair extensions and make sure you get the maximum amount of time from them.

  • Preparing Your Hair

    Your hair is washed in a Deep Cleansing Shampoo and dried straight ready for application of your hair extensions.

  • The Polymer Bond

    The polymer bond sits behind the hair, we use a specialist guide to position the extension correctly and accurately approx. 2 centimeters from your scalp.

  • The Application

    The single strand Classic/Cold Fusion Machine fuses the bond seamlessly onto your hair.

  • The Perfect Result

    The end result is natural and undetectable. One of the Elaine Compton senior stylists will now cut and style your hair to achieve the perfect look.

  • Consultation

    Approximately 1 month after your application we will check your extensions and discuss with you how you are managing them before your courtesy wash and blow-dry by one of our Great Lengths Certified Stylists.
