Don’t like your cut?   Fine lifeless hair?   Can’t seem to grow your hair?   Just need a change?   You need Extensions!

The number of choices and confusion surrounding hair extensions can be overwhelming. Whether you have been wearing extensions for a long time or are considering them for the first time, our highly trained staff can clear up any questions you may have.


Keratin tipped groupings of hair are attached in a strand by strand fashion.  Hair is not re-usable.

Braidless Sew-in.

Not a typical sew-in!! No braids.  Hair on a weft is attached to yours using only microlinks and thread.  Minimal attachment sites.  If you’ve had a typical sew-in before you won’t believe the difference in this.  We’ve seen others attempt this method – this is the real deal. Hair is re-usable.

Skin Weft, also called  Taped or Seamless

Hair on a thin polyurethane tape weft is attached to your hair. Lasts 6 – 8 weeks. Hair can be re-used.

Clip-In Extensions

Ordering clip-ins over the internet can be difficult.  It’s hard to match color without a color swatch, they might need to be cut to fit into your style, your specific color might not be available.  We take care of that for you!  We show you how to put them in too.

Wear them when you want – take them out when you don’t.

Chemical-free coloring

Add color without chemically treating your own hair. Fantasy or natural colors.


Combining methods. Sometimes 2 methods are better than one.  Also a great way to try a new method.
