LA weave hair extensions

The LA weave is a braid-less sew-in technique that is similar to the traditional weaved-in method, but without the tight braids. As well as no braiding, there is also no glue or heat required.

What to expect:

  • Application: 1 -1.5 hours
  • Removal: 15 – 20 minutes
  • Re-fit: Every 8 weeks
  • Suitable for: Most hair types

 

LA weave Maintenance

LA weaves are typically fitted over two or three tracks, depending on thickness/head shape etc. For long term wear, maintenance appointments for LA weave extensions are key. These take place approximately every 8 weeks, dependant on growth and client aftercare.

Initially, extensions will be re-fitted, which involves a full removal and re-apply. Future maintenance appointments then involve a full re-fit again where new rows of hair are used to allow previous hair to rest. Natural hair can be trimmed before each application to ensure continued healthy growth.

Invisible weave hair extensions

The invisible weave method ensures that there are no visible attachments at the base of the extension. The weft extensions are secured using no heat, tight braids or glue. This type of extension is ideal if hair is going to be worn in a ponytail as wefts sit flat and no beads will be on show.

What to expect:

  • Application: 1 – 1.5 hours
  • Removal: 10 – 15 minutes
  • Re-fit: Every 6 - 8 weeks
  • Suitable for: Most hair types

 

Invisible weave Maintenance

Depending on individual features, such as hair thickness and head shape, invisible weaves are fitted over two or three tracks. Maintenance appointments are important for long term wear. The frequency of these depends on growth and aftercare, but typically one should be booked every 6 – 8 weeks for the best results.

At each maintenance appointment, extensions will be re-fitted using new rows of hair to allow the previous hair to rest. This also allows for natural hair to be trimmed to ensure continued healthy growth.

Braided weave hair extensions

Hair is cornrowed before wefts of hair extensions are sewn into your own hair. We use a sew-in technique which leaves a seamless finish. Please note, we do not offer lace closures, frontals or wig services for braided weave extensions.

What to expect:

  • Application: 1 hour
  • Removal: 10 – 15 minutes
  • Re-fit: Every 8 – 10 weeks
  • Suitable for: Medium to thick hair. Not recommended for fine hair (not enough hair to braid for securing the weft extensions)

 

Braid weave Maintenance

Braid weave extensions are typically fitted over two tracks, or three if hair is thicker or heads shape is larger. It is advisable for maintenance appointments to be booked every 8 – 10 weeks, depending on speed of growth and aftercare for longer term wear.

At each of these appointments, extensions will be removed and re-fitted, using new rows of hair to allow the previous hair to rest. Before the new hair is fitted, natural hair can be trimmed to encourage healthy growth.

Micro ring hair extensions

The micro ring technique, sometimes referred to as “I tip”, combines strands of natural hair with stick tipped extension hair, which is secured with a small metal ring. These are installed in straight, uniform rows to create a neat, natural finish. Once the strand is attached, the rings are flattened with pliers to keep them tightly in place.

What to expect:

  • Application: 1.5 – 3 hours
  • Removal: 0.5 – 1.5 hours
  • Re-fit: Every 6 - 8 weeks
  • Suitable for: Medium to thick hair

 

Micro ring hair extensions Maintenance

Micro ring extensions need maintenance every 6-8 weeks. During your maintenance appointment, all rings will be replaced and moved up. The sections of hair the extensions are placed upon will be re-sectioned to protect your hair and prevent the extensions from slipping out.

One of the biggest causes of hair extensions matting is a poor aftercare routine. Once your extensions are installed, it is your responsibility to care for them; your technician will be able to tell straight away if there has been a lack of attention.

Separating your extensions will have a positive effect on how well they last so committing to a daily aftercare routine will help create a better overall experience of wearing micro ring extensions.

We can answer any questions and provide you with advice regarding aftercare before installing your extensions.

Nano ring hair extensions

Nano rings are applied in a similar way to micro ring extensions, however these are much smaller and less detectable.

What to expect:

  • Application: 2 – 4 hours
  • Removal: 0.5 – 1.5 hours
  • Re-fit: Every 4 – 6 weeks
  • Hair life span: 6 – 9 months
  • Suitable for: Most hair types

 

Nano ring hair extensions Maintenance

During your maintenance appointment, each extensions strand is removed and reinserted with a new ring. The removal of the old ring enables your technician to comb any shedding hair to ensure there is no tangling. The hair is then re-sectioned, and a new ring put in place. New sections mean there is always a safe amount of hair supporting the strand and ensures no stress or breakage to your hair underneath. 

Nano ring maintenance appointments are important, they can typically stay in for 2-3 months however, a maintenance check-up is worthwhile at around 4-6 weeks for the best results.

Pre-bonded hair extensions

Pre-bonded extensions are individual stands of hair extensions with a Keratin bond attached to the tip of the strand. The pre-bonded extensions are fitted using a heat gun. This method is also referred to as nail tip, U-tip and flat tip.

Keratin is a natural protein, which is kind to your hair and also promotes growth. Therefore, clients often find that their hair grows faster with the extensions in.

What to expect:

  • Application: 1 – 3 hours
  • Removal: 1 – 2.5 hours
  • Re-fit: 4 – 6 months
  • Suitable for: All hair types

 

Pre-bonded hair extensions Maintenance

Pre-bonded hair extensions do not require maintenance appointments like other techniques and types do. With just some effective and regular client aftercare, extensions should last for 4 – 6 months. This includes careful brushing and the daily separation of bonds to ensure hair remains untangled.

However, it is normal to lose a few strands when worn for an extended period of time. You can book maintenance appointments part way through the life span of your extensions therefore, to replace any missing stands and to freshen the hair up.

Tape hair extensions

Tape hair extensions are small 4cm wide wefts that are “taped” in between sections of your natural hair in sandwich-like pattern. This is considered one of the most efficient hair extension application methods. Extensions are kind to your hair, lay completely flat and cause little damage. 

Tape hair extensions are designed to give a natural, flawless look and feel.

What to expect:

  • Application: 0.5 – 1.5 hours
  • Removal: 30 minutes
  • Re-fit: Every 6 weeks
  • Suitable for: Most hair types, particularly fine hair

 

Tape hair extensions Maintenance

Tape hair extensions require two maintenance appointments. In the first session, the tape tabs will be gently removed using a solution. You will then need to wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo only, in your own time before returning for the second appointment.

In the second session, we will re-fit the freshly washed extensions, which will have new tabs applied to them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answer:

Of course, I have been doing hair extensions in Nottingham for the past 6 years and am fully certified by KM Hair Extensions training in the LA weave and braided weave methods, and I am licenced to use the term LA Weave and branding as well. I am certified by Invisible Weave for the new hair extension method on the market for Invisible weave hair extensions.  I am also certified in Fusion bonds, micro rings, nano rings and tape hair extensions through my intensive training with THETA (The Architect Hair Extensions Academy, Leeds). 

Copies of all of my certificates and insurances are available during all appointments.

Answer:

I give all of my clients aftercare advice during your appointment and I am available for any questions you may have. Hair extensions do not produce their own oils.  Normal products which have not been designed for hair extensions contain too many variables such as high quantities of sulfates, silicone, proteins and chemicals which are NOT suitable for hair extensions. I will give you my recommendations on products to use that from experience and those that with my clients have worked well to achieve long lasting hair extensions.  If clients go against this advice and decide to use any other products, no responsibility will be accepted for the condition of your hair extensions. 

Caring for your extensions takes time and commitment. Whilst I can fit the hair to a high standard and provide aftercare advice, it is then your responsibility to book and attend your maintenance appointments and care for your hair as per the aftercare instructions.

Answer:

Yes. All the factories and suppliers I use are all ethical and professional, both with their staff and their procedures.

Answer:

Remy means that when the hair is donated, the hair has been correctly aligned (the tops and bottoms are kept in their original growing position) to ensure that the hair behaves in exactly the same way as your natural hair. Maintaining of the cuticle and its correct alignment prevents the hair from drying out and helps the hair to remain silky and tangle free. Non-Remy hair will matt and tangle very quickly. All of the hair I use is the very highest quality 100% Remy human hair.

Answer:

You must always dry the root area as any prolonged dampness will cause the extensions to slip. It is fine to leave the rest of the hair to dry naturally but if possible always dry throughout using your heat protection serums and when you go to sleep at night just tie your hair into a loose plait to avoid unnecessary tangling overnight.

Answer:

I only use hair extension methods which I know are completely safe for the natural hair. These have been tested for many years and providing you care for the extensions properly and follow the aftercare advice there will be no damage to your natural hair. In fact, many clients find their hair is in better condition after the extensions are removed. It is essential you follow all the guidance provided for you, that you attend maintenance appointments and have the extensions professionally removed after the required time. 

Answer:

If you need to dye your root area it is strongly advised to ONLY dye the top part of the hair which do not have extensions in and be extremely careful to not affect your extensions that have been fitted.

Answer:

It is strongly advised not to dye your hair extensions. Hair extensions are not the same as natural hair and will almost always dye at a different rate causing poor results. Lightening the extensions will cause the extensions to feel dry and damaged.
 

Answer:

Yes of course you can style them as you would your own natural hair, wash, towel dry gentle, blow dry and use straighteners, curling tongs, curling wands etc.  Heat protection is essential with hair extensions to protect it against any high temperatures applied to them and dryness. Remember to avoid using heated appliances directly on the attachments as this will damage the extensions.  Full aftercare is provided on how to wash, dry, products to use and how to look after your hair extensions to keep the quality lasting as long as possible.

Answer:

You can go swimming with your hair extensions; however it is advisable to wear a swimming cap or tie the hair into a high bun. If you do go swimming and the extensions get wet, please ensure you thoroughly rinse, wash and dry the hair extensions properly afterwards as they can get knotted and dry out. Exposing your hair extensions to sea water should be avoided at all costs.

Answer:

This depends on your hair, how thick it is and which method you have chosen. LA Weave extensions fittings with new purchased hair takes about 1-1.5 hours. Maintenance appointments are about 45 minutes - 1 hour.

Answer:

Yes, if you don't need me to supply the hair and you just need your hair extensions refitting that is ok just come to my studio in Nottingham and I will re-fit your hair extensions for you.  Please ensure the hair you supply is of good quality. 

Answer:

Hair extension maintenance for the LA Weave extensions is where your LA weave is removed and reapplied to allow hair to rest until you next re-fit appointment. Sarah will always finish your hair extensions with a glam wave so it’s perfect for your night out in Nottingham ladies! 

Answer:

The LA Weave once fitted typically stays in for 6-8 weeks before maintenance is required. Depending on the hair quality purchased, the top quality ranges can last 12-18 months so the hair extensions are therefore reused during each maintenance appointment in this timeframe.  Correct aftercare has to be adhered to in order to achieve this.

Answer:

Yes of course, you can come and have your hair extensions fitted in my home studio in Nottingham and travel to me there, or if you provide me with your postcode I can then quote accordingly for my travel out to you.
