My disclaimer. Lawyers do it so it seems smart, read this, then read on to long and lovely hair
When it comes to hair extensions, I absolutely always recommend seeing a Dallas TX Hair Extension Expert aka professional hairdresser. It is essential you book a consultation – hair extensions are not one size fits all. This article will touch on what you can expect but it is no substitute for a real life expert who can answer your questions in person.
Trust us people, we went to school to learn all about your hair and what makes it happy and healthy. Would you accept a prescription from someone who wasn’t a doctor? What about tax advice from a child?
Well then don’t be a dumb dumb when it comes to your hair either. It takes a long time to grow out hair mistakes and unless you’re committed to being a hat lady those mistakes are going to be paraded around right on top of your head for the whole world to see. Here at Beauty Box Salon we all speak the “extensions language”.
We’ve all seen the good, the bad, and the ugly and we are committed to giving you a hair extension service you’re proud of, even if at times that means telling you no.
“Ok, I think I want extensions. I’m overwhelmed with choices…what kind do I want…do I go with Human Hair or Synthetic…Help!”
Human Hair Vs. Synthetic
If you want the most natural looking results you absolutely without a doubt should go with human hair for adding length or volume with a permanent method (synthetic hair has its place and I will touch on that later).
So why is human hair the bee’s knees? Many reasons:
1. It looks and feels the most natural (because it is natural, duh)
2. You can style human hair as you would your own hair with heat tools such as curling irons, flatirons etc. So it’s as versatile as your imagination.
3. Human hair lasts longer than Synthetic hair
Very Important: Not all human hair is created equal.
The best quality human hair is called “Remy” it is sometimes called Optimum Cuticle Hair. What this means is that the hair is processed with the cuticle all laying in the same direction.
Hair that is not processed as carefully means hair that will not last as long as remy. Human hair is more expensive than synthetic, so if you are going to invest, make sure you are investing in quality. Non -remy hair will also not stand up to heat styling well, and will likely tangle very easily. So go with Remy and be happy.
What Kind of Application do I want and how long will they last?
When it comes to extensions there seems to be about as many application methods as there are hair extension companies. The Beauty Box Salon has made it a priority to stay up to date on the latest and greatest methods that will look the most natural and be the least damaging to your hair.
The application that’s right for you will depend on your current hair length, what end result you’re going for, the type and density of your hair and other factors. Once again, this is why a consultation is necessary. Here are a just a few of the methods we offer at Beauty Box Salon:

Synthetic hair is hair too! (Just kidding its glorified plastic, although it has always been the step-child to human hair, it has some advantages as well)
Synthetic hair extensions are sometimes cool because:
1. It looks and feels like human hair – this is something I can only say recently because of the huge quality improvements in synthetic hair
2. It generally works very well for pieces such as clip in bangs, ponytails, braided headbands, hair wraps, volumizing systems, and clip in highlights.
3. Synthetic hair is not affected by the environment like human hair so it won’t frizz in humidity or lose curl in heat, etc.
4. Synthetic hair is much, much cheaper than human hair so if you need extra hair for a one time event or when you need to make sure your hair is not affected by the weather then synthetic may be a better price point
1. You cannot color synthetic hair.
2. You cannot style all synthetic hair (There are new heat friendly varieties that can withstand heat up to 350 degrees)
3. Synthetic hair will not last very long, and generally the longer the synthetic hair , the shorter the life of it.
The Bottom line:
History has shown that long hair is a sign of youth and fertility so its no wonder so many women are obsessed with getting long and full healthy looking hair.
Do your research (Yelp is a good place for this) ask questions, and most importantly book a consultation with a trust worthy salon professional.
We want you to be informed and feel confident, and when you do decide on extensions we want to be the salon to give them to you!!
