Hair extension systems and fixing methods at Mac & Mohawk, Wallasey
There are several different methods for attaching Hair Extensions but at Mac & Mohawk we feel that quality and Damage Free Systems are where we feel most comfortable – therefore the following systems are what we offer to you, our valued customer.
Hair Extensions – Bonded – Fusion – Glue in.
We started applying Bonded Hair Extensions over 15 years ago with the use of the Racoon Hair Extension system. Bonded Hair Extensions also known as Fusion Hair Extensions or Glue In Hair Extensions – are the most natural looking and long lasting type of Hair Extension system that we have found. Most of the clients who opt for hair extensions at Mac & Mohawk, Wallasey choose bonded hair extensions as it always looks fabulous and looks the most realistic and natural.
This type of bonded hair extension application usually takes around 4 hours for a full head or a maintenance visit so make sure you can commit to the time these fabulous Hair Extensions take. They are completely gorgeous and well worth the time and money.
At Mac & Mohawk we like to move with the times and as things change we like to change with any new hair trends. We now also offer a system using Dreamgirl hair which is still great quality at an affordable cost (from £250).
Hair Extensions – Micro Wefts – Micro Ring.
A new sytem of Hair Extensions – Micro Ring and Micro Weft has recently become very popular. We feel they are a better alternative to the widely used Hair Extension Weave – Weave In Hair Extensions or Braided Hair Extension system.
Benefits of Micro Ring and Micro Weft Hair Extensions at Mac & Mohawk, Wallasey
- No bulk at the scalp area
- No damaging braiding of the hair
- Quick maintenance (1 hour)
- Quick application (1-2 hours)
- Cheaper alternative to bonding (starting from only £90 including hair – and from £10 to tighten and £50 for a full refit).
Hair Extensions – BEWARE!!!
Remember that price usually reflects experience – therefore cheap hair extensions usually mean a BAD TECHNICIAN – or even worse somebody who is not even a hairdresser – with little or no experience or understanding – who is offering cheap Hair Extensions in your area.
This can lead to tension alopecia or bald patches – where Hair Extensions haven’t been applied properly or with due care. Also you will generally find with these inexperienced technicians that if you start having problems that they will not know how to advise you or suddenly disappear. We hear of this all the time as we are constantly correcting bad hair extensions.
Hair Extensions – Do’s & Dont’s.
Do use the correct products
We don’t advise lightly about using the correct hair care products when you have spent good money having hair extensions fitted. The correct products for hair extensions will keep them soft and manageable and looking amazing – but using cheap alternatives can make them dry and unmanageable and can also lead to slippage and particularly with bonded Hair Extensions – can lead to bonds dissolving.
Do listen to the advice that we give you.
We offer our advice to you after gaining decades of experience with hair extensions, ongoing continuous high quality training and having fitted hair extensions for hundreds of happy clients. The advice we give you on after care, products and maintenance is not designed to be a sales pitch to you. We want you to be 100% happy with your hair. We want you to swish it at all of your friends and family and we want you to be a continued customer who’s hair extensions last as long as possible. If you don’t listen to the advice we give, we cannot (and in some cases will not) be held responsible for the condition of your hair extensions
Don’t ignore any problems.
If you have any problems at all call back to the salon immediately to have a hair extensions technician help you. Believe it or not we have dealt with ladies in the past who have completely ignored advice or have had ladies who have had hair extensions fitted elsewhere – that have resulted in major MATTING of the hair extensions and have had to unfortunately have them CUT OUT just because they chose not to follow simple aftercare advice.
