Top 5 questions about hair extensions

By Blog No Comments

We get inquiries almost every day about hair extensions.   Today there are so many options, colors, types and price points.  Let me outline the top 5 questions we get about hair extensions.

HaloCouture 16″ halo and Fall

  1.   What types of extensions do you have?  At Luster Salon, we have 3 different options for hair extensions:  HaloCouture, Hotheads and Dream Catchers.  Each brand utilizes the highest quality Remy Human hair.  But each brand has different lengths, colors and approach to attachment.
  2. How long do they last?   Attached extensions can be adjusted every 4-6 weeks which can lead to a life of 4-18 months.  Non attached extensions (HaloCouture) can last several years, depending on how they are taken care of.

  3. Will extensions damage my hair?  Our stylists are trained to analyze the hair and scalp and recommend the best method for each individual.  Care and maintenance directives are clearly conveyed and it is up to each individual to follow their stylist’s instructions.
  4. Will extensions match my hair?  With all the options Luster Salon has for hair extensions, we are able to match any combination of color.  It is recommended that you have your hair color where you want it to be before choosing to proceed with any type of extensions.

  5. How much do they cost?  The most common question, of course!  Because we have so many options, we can customize for you based on your budget.  The two biggest factors in price are the quantity of extensions needed to create your look and the length of hair needed.  The range can be anywhere from $300 (a HaloCouture 12″ halo) to $1300 (Dream Catchers 20″ multi colored full head application.)  This is where a consultation is paramount!  They are always complimentary and any one of our stylists can assist you.  931-542-1312

A word about getting your hair lighter (or “blonder”).

By Blog No Comments

It’s that time of the year again.  Lately, we have alot of guests wanting their hair lighter.  Popular inspiration photos shown during consultations are ones with very light and pale blonde tones. Inspiration

But because a huge majority of people have existing artificial color on their hair, achieving these very light tones are difficult, especially in one sitting.
Let me give some basic examples of what can be achieved in one appointment.  Hair color is measured on a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being black and 10 being the palest blonde.  IF your hair has ever been colored in the past (with long hair, anything done to your hair within the past 3-5 years can effect things) you can expect to safely get your hair approximately 3 shades lighter.  We also highly recommend adding an Olaplex enhancement to your color service to help protect fragile strands.swatch ring

If neutral results are desired, a gloss or “toner” would need to be applied in order to refine the lightness that was just created.  This means a level of sheer color is applied and actually will erase just a smidge of that lightness.  I know, this sounds like complete gobbledegook.  Check out the photo showing the hair color swatches.  Find your color and move 3 shades up.  That is a realistic expectation for one lightening sitting.
Of course, if your hair has never been colored or if any previous color has actually been cut off, you have what is known as “virgin” hair.  No need to blush, virgin hair allows your colorist more leeway to achieve what you want.  Most of the time, you can expect to safely get your hair up to 4-5 shades lighter.
There are all sorts of exceptions to these guidelines.  How many layers of artificial color have been applied?  The texture and condition of your hair also play a part.  If your hair has been colored red or copper, these shades pose additional challenges.  Because there are so many exceptions and scenarios, we always recommend booking a complimentary consultation so we can see you in person.  Some questions you need to be prepared to answer are:
What is the color history of your hair for the past 5 years?
What amount/quantity of lightness are you wanting to see?  (Do you want to be a solid blond?)
Are you prepared to make multiple visits to lighten your hair to the desired shade?
Have at least 3 inspiration photos to share with your stylist to help convey what you have in mind.
As a Redken Certified Hair Colorist, you can trust that myself and my staff will give you all your options, explain what can safely be achieved and be clear on pricing.
