As invisible as all extensions from Great Lengths!

 

Extensions must always remain invisible! This should also go for quick extensions. With Great Lengths tape extensions, you can be sure that this is indeed the case.Standard systems use the Sandwich Technique.
This sounds a little bit like “thick”, and not really like invisible. At Great Lengths we like to stay smart. And invisible, of course!
We call our technique “Invisible Touch”: Its effect is that your own hair is guaranteed to cover the extensions! Both above and below your own hair. And in the middle: GL Apps.
Very smart and definitely invisible, just like all the extensions from Great Lengths.

Only GL Apps are this professional!

 

Extensions from Great Lengths stand for professional hair thickening and hair extensions.

And in addition, so does our GL Apps. What does this mean for you?
The highest hair quality possible!
The hair falls in a completely natural way.
The colours are brilliant. And the longevity of the GL Apps -/b is between 6 to 8 weeks. Much longer than other standard products.

Long thick hair has always been and always will be a symbol of beauty

 

Is special care necessary after having my extensions applied?
Extensions may be treated as regular hair but long hair always needs special attention. Great Lengths offers quality products and special brushes.

Should the extensions be straightened?
You can use a hair straightener but the bonds should never come in contact with the tool. In case of dry ends we suggest you use Great Lengths Hairfluid and Great Lengths hair care products .

Apple vinegar makes hair shine: can I use it?
Great Lengths does not guarantee for these types of treatments. We have a wide range of products for hair care.

Can I run my fingers through my hair?
Yes, you should run your fingers through the bonds to keep them seperated.

How many times should I have my extensions checked?
It is necessary to have your extensions checked at least once every month in order for the hair extensionist to cut the natural hairs that have fallen out but are intrapped between the scalp and the bonding avoiding them to tangle.

What shampoo should I use?
You should use one of Great Lengths shampoos or a shampoo that has been advised to you by your hairdresser and which does not contain alcohol or silicone

 

How should I care for my hair during shampooing?
Use little pressure while shampooing. Always brush the strands with a Great Lengths brush and without pulling. Start drying from the roots and then the bonds. Make sure the bonds fully dry.

Do I need to be careful while brushing my hair?
Yes and this is why Great Lengths has created a special brush

Sports, free time and extensions

 

Can I go in the water with extensions?
Of course you may!  The bonds are made of keratin with a structure very similar to hair’s structure and therefore it doesn’t melt in water. It is very solid and extremely safe.If I go to the beach what do I have to do?
With Great Lengths extensions you may go in salt water. You should rinse your hair with clear water and dry them as soon as possible.Can I tie my hair while doing sports?
Great Lengths extensions are applied in the most natural way possible. If you know that you will tie your hair often after having your extensions applied, let your hairdresser know and the extensions will be applied so that they will remain invisible when you tie your hair.Can I do water sports?
You may have extensions applied even if you do water sports. You should wash your hair afterwards to remove chloride.
Solarium: is this a problem?
This should not be a problem. Cover your hair with a towel or use our Energy Conditioner.
www.avantgardesalonandspa.com
www.avantgardesalonandspa.com
But also :
    • Braid your hair extensions before going to bed. This will help against knots and should be done with naturally long hair as well.

 

    • When drying hair, dry bonding areas first. This will protect the bonds.

 

    • Have your hairdresser cut your hair for a more cared after look.

 

*    Only use brushes with soft bristles. This will help ends and bonds.

 

*     Brush thoroughly twice a day.

Avant-garde salon and spa in Miami answers your questions


How do I recognize quality extensions?

You will recognize quality extensions when they are not easily distinguishable from your own hair and when the bonding is very thin and almost invisible.Can the strands be removed and can I remove them myself?
Removal of the Great Lengths strands is relatively easy. Your hairdresser will apply a special gel on the bonds removing them with a tool. What usually creates a challenge is matting. Matting is due to non proper or careless maintenance.
Never remove your hair extensions yourself. Always return to the salon to have your hair extensions professionally removed. Your stylist in Avant-Garde salon and spa Miami, has been trained to remove the hair extensions using only Great Lengths removal solution.How are the strands attached to the natural hair?
Great Lengths patented  protein polymer bond ensures a quick and simple application either with heat or ultrasound system. Bonds are made from synthetic keratin mimicking the molecular structure of natural keratin found in human hair and skin and maintaining a pH value of 5.5 to be compatible with your hair, scalp and skin.How long do extensions last?
Quality extensions may last up to about 6 months. This depends on how fast your hair grows. If your hair grows quickly they may last less and vice versa.
We recommend removal every 4 to 6 months, depending upon the type of application performed (i.e.lengthening, volumzing, etc), the state/condition of the natural hair, and their lifestyle.
Must I always wear the same hairstyle?
Great Lengths hair has a natural wavy effect and for most clients this is an advantage because they can be easily dried and styled. Any style, color or cut is possible.

How to style your Hair extensions
Feel free to contact Our Salon in Miami to get some easy tips to style your hair
Do extensions damage hair?
Whichever method of application you choose, hair extensions are a cosmetic procedure and so, as with any cosmetic procedure, if applied and maintained properly, the application will not damage your hair.
The key to a successful, damage free application lies in the details of the application. There is no “cookie cutter”, “one size fits all” application technique, as each client has different hair conditions and desired results that must be considered.

Beauty tips : How to finger wave from Avant-garde salon and spa Miami

Avant-garde suggestion: powder bluff from Kerastase

hairspray shine spray or serum 

Avant-garde suggestion : glimmer shine spay from Moroccanoil

Finger Wave How-To

Part One: The Three-Step, Basic Pin-Curl Technique

This is the essential technique used to create pin curls, which will give you a full head of finger waves. Learn this core set of steps, and then continue to part two to set your whole ‘do.

1: Grab a 1-inch section of hair and spray lightly with hairspray.

 

2: Wrap the strand around your curling iron starting from the root all the way to the tip. Hold for about 7 seconds (a little longer for coarse hair, a little shorter for finer hair).

 

3: Release hair from the curling iron. Starting from the tip, wrap the strand around two fingers until the curl is near the scalp. Secure with a clip or pin. Place the clip at the base of the curl, right against the scalp, rather than on the outer edge of the pin curl. This helps prevent creases where you don’t want them. Leave pin curls to set.

once you’ve mastered this set of moves, you have all the technique necessary to make the best finger wave ‘do! Now let’s get started!

a sample of long hair on long hair

Finger-Waves

 

Part Two: Sectioning and Setting the Full Head

1: Start with dry hair. If your hair is fine, prep with dry shampoo or mousse, especially around the roots.

 

2: Section hair horizontally, starting at the bottom and working your way to the top and moving from back to front. How many sections you ultimately use depends on the thickness of the hair. Leave one semi-circular section at the crown of the head—you can clip it out of the way until later.

 

3: Starting with the bottom section, take a strand of hair and curl using the techniques above (spray, curl, pin). Work across the head until all the hair in that section is in curls. Once complete, move to the next section of hair, working your way across, creating curls as you go. Move toward the front of the head until all hair is pinned. For the pieces that frame the face, wrap hair outward, away from the face when curling.

 

4: Once you reach the top section that you clipped out of the way earlier, divide horizontally into pieces that are roughly 1-inch thick. Pin-curl each piece from front to back, to help create volume at the crown. Continue until you’ve curled and clipped the entire section.

 

5: Once all of your hair is up in pin curls, hit the entire head with hairspray.

 

6: Then, starting at the back of the head, take curls down section by section. At this point, you can apply a few dabs of shine spray or serum to add polish. As you work, rake through curls lightly with your fingers, spritz with hairspray, and go over gently with a flat paddle brush. For volume, back-comb each section at the roots.

 

7: When all of your hair is out, back-comb the crown, and finish with a final pass of hairspray.
