ANN ARBOR’S LEADING HAIR EXTENSION SALON
Whether you have longed for luscious lengthy locks, amazing and funky hair color highlights, or hair full of new volume, hair extensions now provide incredible versatility for you.
At Avissa Salon|Spa, we specialize in many types of hair extension applications including fusion, micro ring, clip-in, sticker hair extensions and more, using the finest remi hair extensions. Below is a description of each, as well as a price range. The price is determined by the type of extensions, the length and thickness of your own hair and how much hair you need based on your desired result.
.TYPES OF APPLICATION: FUSION HAIR EXTENSIONS, MICRO RING (MICRO-BEAD) HAIR EXTENSIONS, CLIP-IN AND TAPE-IN HAIR EXTENSIONS
MICRO RING HAIR EXTENSIONS (iTip , wing or weft extensions)
Maintenance schedule: every 6-12 weeks
These extensions are attached in small sections (strand by strand) by using a silicon-lined micro ring with a double loop interlocking system. That means no keratin, glues or any heat at all. The looping method helps the hair to not shift or slide.
One type of extensions we use with micro rings are called I-tip extensions. These are small sections of hair bonded at the top to keep all the strands together. The rigidity of the glue also makes them super easy to push up through the rings.
Micro ring hair extensions can be reused/refitted and, if properly cared for, can last 6-8 months. They are maintained by having them re-tightened when they grow out. If any slip out, your technician can easily put them back in.
Micro ring hair extensions are not recommended for extremely fine, thin hair.
- You can easily color your hair with the extensions in as the ring does not stain or ruin
- There is no adhesive used, just the loop and ring
- Easy to readjust
- Easy re-installation
- Hair can be reused
- Very fast, easy removal
We guarantee our hair extensions for 3 months when all home care instructions are followed and you come in for a maintenance appointment within 6-8 weeks after installation.
FUSION HAIR EXTENSIONS
Approximate maintenance schedule: every 4-6 months
Fusion hair is applied on a lock by lock basis. The stylist will individually attach each lock to the client’s hair (near the base of the neck) through use of heating pliers (hot tool) applied to the keratin bond. Fusion extensions should last approximately 4-6 months and eventually replaced as the normal hair grows out.
- They last longer than any other type of hair extensions
- You do not need to get them tightened or redone while you have them in
- The extension colors do not fade (with the exception of pastel shades)
- Best for maintaining the quality of your hair
- Extensions look just as good the day you take them out as the day you put them in
- Minimal maintenance
We guarantee our fusion hair extensions for 3 months when all home care instructions are followed and you come in for a maintenance appointment within 6-8 weeks after installation.
The chart below shows approximate number of locks required for typical applications. Some locks may be subdivided into even smaller sections as determined by the stylist to achieve specific results.
25-50 locks Create highlights/color effects without chemicals
25-50 locks Lengthening or thickening the bangs or adding volume to the hair
75-100 locks Lengthening the back of sides of the head adding volume or making asymmetric lines
Three Quarters Head
80-120 locks Lengthening everything, except the top
100-150 locks Depending on hair density and volume/length desired
TAPE-IN HAIR EXTENSIONS
approximate maintenance schedule: every 6-8 weeks
Tape-in hair extensions are wefts of hair set into a clear base approx 1/2 inch wide. This “ribbon” is then attached to extra-strong and durable double-sided invisible tape. The application process is done by sandwiching small sections of hair between the tape wefts. Tape Hair Extensions should be maintained every 6-8 weeks. When correct maintenance and care procedures are followed, the hair can be reused 3- 5 times by getting them re-taped and re-applied by a professional.
You have less versatility as far as styling because the wefts are wider than keratin bonded extensions, but look very natural and lay flat…so no bulkiness at all.
- Hair can be reused, so there is only the service cost to have them reattached
- They are faster to install
- Cost effective compared to other methods
We guarantee our tape-in hair extensions for 2 months when all home care instructions are followed and you come in for a maintenance appointment within 6 weeks after installation.
**For any hair extensions, it is recommended to never leave them in past your stylist’s recommendation. Always follow the care instructions and recommended maintenance times.
