Welcome to Avant Gardes Blog!

Welcome to Avant Garde’s blog. This tool will engage you, educate you, and most importantly inspire you. Our journey through the world of beauty will begin with a topic which would seem like a basic right but is much harder to achieve. We should have the right to express ourselves and be who we are. I’m happy to say that it’s becoming a trend. Fashion colors are being used as tools to creating works of art, and the canvases are just as bold and beautiful. When taking the dive into fashion colored hair, your making a statement and declaring your own independence. It has become it’s own world of mermaids (and mermans!): bright and vibrant or soft and elegant. There is no limit to what these hair artists will create; However, the process to get you there requires a knowledgeable and skilled stylist. This is what you will find at Avant Garde. Passion is what moves us forward and hair is our gateway to expression. The French word Avant Garde translates to ‘bringing the trend.’ We take pride in our word, and in our work. Hope you will join me again next week and see you soon at Avant Garde!

Before you
Before you let me tell you that
It is dragging its feet
It’s hardly exist
Despair
Something to happen
Before you
Before you let me tell you

What was it before you
Otherwise a preamble
A long road to cross
Then everything changes
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my body
Before you remembers
He felt of death

It is struggling
Singing in the desert
For whom it was
All these verses, all these tunes
Before you
Before you let me tell you

What was it before you
A repetition
Words las gestures
Then the explosion
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my arms
Had never hugged
But emptiness and cold

What was it before you
Otherwise a preamble
A long road to cross
Then everything changes
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my body
Before you remembers
He felt of death

What was it before you
Just a huge stage
Too big for me
And then all dance
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my life
Began in the morning

Weaving its way throughevery trend in 2014 is the simple, but compelling, act of mindful living: The idea of attentiveness to the present moment can help clear the clutter in your mind caused by the overstimulation of today’s supercharged world.

This is the year trend that’s on everyone’s mind – from the Dalai Lama to the co-founder of Twitter to your yoga studio down the street. Whether you tap into mindfulness through an app on your smartphone, by turning all your digital devices off, by enjoying a facial or a spa manicure pedicure  or by changing your hair color , it’s your mind that matters.

A healthy mind is the true key to happiness .

We spend so much energy on physical health and hygiene—but we need to spend more on mental hygiene and the ‘hygiene’ of emotion.”

This is one of the biggest movements the wellness industry has ever seen. People are craving (and needing) a reboot of their brains—and the reasons are plentiful. Mindfulness gives us an effective tool to cope with today’s highly stressed-out world. It has been proven to re-wire our brains to become less anxious, happier, more focused and even more creative.

In todays world women like to change their appearance more often. Why wait months for your hair to lengthen when your hairdresser is able to give you the look you want in a couple of hours?

ABC…of Extensions

Bonding

Our bonding is made of pure keratin and allows perfect fusion with your hair.
Through Great Lengths three technologies, heat, ultrasounds and Multisonic, each strand is perfectly bonded to your hair. The points where your hair and the strands are bonded are perfectly adapted with the color of your hair. (see on the right) They are invisible and perfectly straight in order to guarantee comfort.

Colors, all types of colors

Great Lengths offers a wide range of colors. More than 50 tonalities of natural colors, toned colors, crazy colored strands with a range of tonalities that go from light to dark.Fuchsia, yellow, turquoise and violet are just a few of the variations we offer. You may also choose a pastel color. Colors such as peach, pink, blue and indigo create a very delicate effect.Almost all our colors are created using a special preparation.

 

David Gold

In 1992 David Gold founded Great Lengths International and since then has created the parameters in his field with new procedures and techniques.David Gold, the inventor of Great Lengths extensions, began his career in the textile field. At the end of 1991 he met a hairdresser that would paste strands of hair to clients’ real hair. This technique however did not result being completely satisfying and David decided to find a solution.
He discovered, on the basis of molecular hair structure,  that it was possible to fix the bonding with a polymer similar to keratin that allowed tying strands to natural hair perfectly using an ultrasound machine. The hair quality is optimized by using Indian hair from Temples. The technique has been  improved in the last years.
Thousands of satisfied clients wear our extensions for thickening or for just reviving their hairstyles with special effects.

 

 

DOUBLE DRAWN

One of Great Lengths’ distinct signs of quality is Double Drawn, when each hair in the bond has the same length.

Handwork and craftsmanship

During the refining process in Rome, more than 270 experts manage the extensions but in the end the strands are bonded with a machine.

Indian Hair

Only Indian hair adapts perfectly for high quality extensions. The structure is similar to European hair and is offered by women in the Indian temples as an offer to the gods. Great Lengths buys the unprocessed hair at the official public auction.  Almost one third of the income finances the infrastructures in these regions.

 

Long lasting growth

Patience is virtuous! Since Great Lengths uses only real, naturally grown Indian hair and considering that hair grows about one centimeter a month, it takes about five years to have the necessary length for a  fabulous hair extension.

Partner salons

By partnering with Great Lengths, salon owners and qualified hairdressers benefit from a proven, profitable business service that helps achieve the reality of transforming client’s hair beyond their expectations.Only certified stylists and salons are allowed to perform Great Lengths service.To start your educational journey and take the first step to increasing your salon profits or if you are interested in a free consultation, contact the Great Lengths distributor in your country and ask for assistance.

Real Hair

Great Lengths sources only 100% untreated Indian temple hair.
This is the finest source of virgin hair available in the marketplace that is most compatible with Caucasian and European hair textures.

Remi hair

Remi hair means that the hair cuticles are facing the same direction enabling the hair extensions not to tangle.

Time

Important time factors for extensions: The time it takes to add in the extensions varies depending on the application system and strands length but usually it lasts between one and four hours.
The extension hair is then removed after six months at the latest, as the natural hair has grown and the points of connection have become visible.

USA

US-stars like Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez set trends with their enthusiasm for extensions like other celebrities with extensions.

World market leader

43 distribution centers, which ship up to 650.000 strands to over 30.000 salons worldwide every week.For years Great Lengths is considered as the world’s leader in hair extensions and is now about to conquer the tape market. Glue-in extensions – so-called GL Apps. Easy to apply, great to wear, they stay in up to 3 months and are re-usable.

100% REMY HUMAN HAIR

Remy Hair refers to human hair that retains the cuticle layer, the outer most part of the hair strand, flowing the way hair does naturally. The delicate process is the key advantage of Remy hair keeping it soft and silky, long-lasting and tangle-free.

WHAT IS REMY HAIR?

Remy Hair refers to human hair that retains the cuticle layer, the outer most part of the hair strand, flowing in the same direction, flowing the way hair does naturally. The delicate process which maintains the cuticle in hair wefts is the key advantage of Remy hair keeping it soft and silky, smooth and shiny, long-lasting and tangle-free. Simply put, Remy Hair is gorgeous hair! And we have selected the very best among the Remy hair choices. Our hair is the Rolls Royce of hair. 

 

QUICK & EASY

Quickly and easily transform your hair. Add or remove length and volume instantly. Whether you want to step up your glamour on those special nights out, or want to simply enjoy the added beauty to work. Our Extensions are a quick and easy way to change your look instantly.

HOW WILL MY EXTENSIONS STAY ON WITHOUT CLIPS, OR BINDINGS?

Please refer to our Instructional Video: “How To Fit Your Extensions” 
Our Extensions is custom fit and sits on top of your head like a halo. The miracle wire sits about an inch to three inches behind your hairline and the back of the hair extensions slides down just under the occipital bone. The perfect fit will be snug and comfortable and will ensure no movement of the halo. After you gently pull your hair out and over to cover your entire halo, including the miracle wire, the weight of your hair lying on top of the halo, will keep it secure and in place. You will be able to shake your head without your extensions coming off. 

 

CAN I WEAR A Halo couture  IF I ALREADY HAVE EXTENSIONS?

Yes, you can certainly wear multiple extensions at the same time. Keep in mind, each of our extensions have over 100 grams of 100% Remy human hair, which is the equivalent of a full head of hair. That said, you can enjoy double or triple the luxurious volume that you would achieve with multiple extensions if you so desire. Please work with one of our Authorized Salons to get fitted and have them expertly blend the extensions perfectly

 

CAN I COLOR MY HALOCOUTURE EXTENISONS?

Yes, you can deposit color. Because HaloCouture Extensions are 100% Remy human hair, you or your stylist may color as you would your own hair. However, since some color brands may work differently, we recommend you test the color with a few strands in a discrete area of the halo first. Note, some colorists have found that washing and air-drying the halo couture extensions prior to coloring helps the hair take the color more effectively

We do not recommend stripping the Halo of color (bleach or lightening). We can not guarantee the outcome of this and it could dry out the Halo or possibly ruin it

 

CAN I STYLE & BLEND MY EXTENSIONS?

Yes, because HaloCouture Extensions are 100% Remy human hair, you or your stylist may style as you would your own hair. 

For stylist’s: if your client has long layers you may want to texturize and layer the halo while your client is wearing it. If your client has a blunt hairstyle, you may need to texturize and layer your client’s hair and then texturize and layer the halo while it’s on your client’s head

 

REASONABLY PRICED

HALOCOUTURE is thrilled to take advantage of the processes that make gorgeous Remy human hair very reasonably priced, and are pleased to pass that benefit right on to you!  Enjoy the pleasure of transforming your hair with rich, silky, luxurious hair without breaking your budget.

I’VE NEVER WORN EXTENSIONS. AREN’T EXTENSIONS EXPENSIVE AND REQUIRE A LONG TERM MAINTENANCE COMMITMENT?

You can beautifully transform your look with the rich fullness, silky texture and stylish design you have always dreamed about. Many other extension products require you to initially sit in a chair for 7 hours and require a substantial investment, only to have to return every 4 months for maintenance which is also costly. With HaloCouture Extensions, you visit the Stylist to get color matched, spend 10 minutes getting fitted and another 30 minutes to have the stylist blend your HaloCouture Extensions and you are set! No costly maintenance fees! And you can wear your extensions over and over!
