Extensions are everyone’s little secret – for the simple reason that they are so multi-talented. They can add fullness and texture; they can skip on by waiting and give you extra inches in seconds. They can even give you a swishy ponytail, fringe or balayage – all in the bat of an eye.
But so many talents means so many options: there are fusion extensions, tapes, clip ins and more. Each one is applied differently and, like a casual date to a full-blown relationship, require a different level of commitment. Frankly, it can get confusing.
Which is why we created our very own Extensions Glossary: An A-Z style index of straight-talking advice on which extensions you need when. Because who doesn't love a good list?
Application time: A matter of 15 minutes. Where: At home, in your office, on the bus, if you fancy. We hold no judgment – but do watch out for speed bumps. Level of commitment: Think of Clip Ins as the casual dating of extensions.
Clip them in whenever you want more fullness and length – they even come in a balayage version, for extra texture and depth. Being 100% human hair means you can style them with your dryer, tongs or straightener – as if they were your own. There’s no muss, no fuss, no hair damage or gluing your fingers together. Just the lustrous lengths you’ve always wanted – and they look just like your own. We won’t tell if you won’t.
Clip In Fringe
Application time: Inhale, exhale – you’re done already. Where: No time or place like the present. Level of commitment: Commitment phobes – meet your match. Our Clip In Fringes don’t like to get attached.
Now you want one; now you don't: all this hedging is giving you decision fatigue. Let’s cut to the chase and snap one on, using the super handy built-in clips. It’ll frame your eyes, switch up your look – and reveal a whole new you. They’re human hair, so behave like yours – and love to be styled your way. Then when you’re done and need your forehead back, a simple flick is all it takes to set it free.
Application time: 2 hours. Where: We'll meet you at one of our Flagships. Level of commitment: As extensions go, these are for when you find ‘the one,' and you never want to let them go. Which is why we made them so that they last the distance and stay put for 2-3 months.
Smaller sections of hair are bonded to your roots by one of our resident extensions experts. Whether it’s length or fullness, or you just want it all – they’ll create the look you’ve always dreamed of. So you can simply get on with having really Great Hair.
Invisible PonyApplication time: Five blinks of an eye and you’re ready to swish. Where: You can take them anywhere. From parties to interviews to first dates and beyond, we recommend the Invisible Pony for those moments when you need Great Hair+. Level of commitment: You’re free as a bird to whip it in and out on a whim.
Pre-cut and shaped to power up your pony with just the right length, fullness and movement. It's even fitted with snap-on clips to make life easy for your fingers and is made of human hair, so is a total breeze to style. Long story short: this is one we made earlier.
Application time: 1 hour. Where: Swing by one of our Blow Dry Bars. Level of commitment: Medium. You kind of like these ones – so you’ll definitely want to stick with them for the full 6 weeks.
For the person who wants to max out Great Hair for the long-run, but needs to streamline time in the diary, we created Tapes just for you. You pick your shade; we do the handiwork by simply sandwiching the tape between sections of your own hair. Your tapes can be repositioned after 6 weeks, then just like your favourite pair of jeans – you can wear them time and time again.
