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.

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!

Keratin tip hair extensions

Our Salon offers so many options, when it comes to hair extensions, one question that always comes up is what exactly is a “keratin tip hair extensions”? To put it in simple words, they are hair extensions whose tip, as the name implies, have been dipped into keratin protein adhesive. This can be seen in the image above.

Keratin tip hair extensions are generally more expensive than other types of hair extensions due to keratin being what hair is naturally made up of. They are honestly the best you can get for a natural and healthy look.

Keratin tip hair extensions normally come in strands as the image above show. It is important to note that they adhesive used to keep the strand together is just for that, to keep them together.

To have them placed with your hair, it is strongly recommended you visit a professional salon. After all, this is your look you are investing it, work with some

one who knows! Remember, if the price sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is! The process of putting on keratin tip hair extensions can be a daunting and labor intensive job especially if you’re looking to do your whole head.

These offer the most natural and healthy look possible when trying to add volume, long sexy hair or simply to change up your entire look!

Maintaining your hair extensions !

                     

Recommendations for maintaining your Keratin Hair Extensions by stylist Edward from Avant-Garde Salon and Spa Miami

Do you have extensions? Well here are a few tips to maintain the longest lasting extensions.

Daily Care

Brush hair from scalp to ends at least 2 times a day, once in the morning or before washing and once in the evening before bed.

Washing your hair

Do not shampoo your hair for at least 48 hours after your extensions have been applied to allow the bond to set. Shampoo and condition your hair as you normally would, but try to avoid using too much conditioner at the bonding points. Cold water is key. Avoid warm/hot water.

Do not comb between the scalp and the bond. On a regular basis, separate the bonds with your fingers to prevent matting

Drying your hair

Always dry your hair thoroughly, starting at the bond, as it is at its most vulnerable when wet

Do not towel dry the hair with a scrubbing motion. Instead, use a blotting motion and wrap the hair in a towel to remove excess moisture

Always blow dry your hair on a cool/warm temperature

Brushing

Great Lengths flat headed, soft bristle brushes are the most suitable for brushing your hair. With small sections of hair gently brush from the bonds to the ends of the hair

Styling and finishing

Styling products such as Pearl Gloss Styler can only be applied to the lengths and ends of your hair and not the bond itself

The Great Lengths round brush can be used for blow drying

Straighteners, tongs and heated rollers can be used; however they must be kept away from the bond area

Sleeping

We recommend you tie your hair in a loose pony tail or braid to prevent tangling while sleeping

Exercise and your lifestyle

Extensions suit most lifestyles, however be mindful in the following circumstances which may affect the lifespan of your bonds, or in fact, cause them to breakdown:

Regular swimming, particularly in sea water and chlorinated water

Regular sauna or steam room use

Excessive aerobic activity

Keratin Bonded Extensions

 

 

 

 

There are several methods and techniques for applying Hair Extensions that vary depending on your lifestyle and interests.

– Temporary clip-in extensions are ideal for an event or special occasion.  Maybe you have your wedding or prom soon approaching?  Clip-in extensions will help you achieve a fashion-forward look. Here at Avant-Garde, our clip-in extensions are custom made and individualized per client.  The beauty of this service is that the extensions are yours to keep and reapply as you wish.

– If you’re looking for a longer-lasting look, we suggest trying our tape strip hair extensions.  These extensions last until your next shampoo and are a great way to see how you would enjoy a more permanent solution for extensions.

– A third alternative is sew-in extensions, which are useful when desiring a longer look, lasting for several months.  Sew-in extensions are ideal for volume and fullness.

– Lastly, when you’re ready to take the next step towards longer natural looking hair, consider AG’s Keratin bonded extensions.  These bonded extensions last for about four to six months and require little maintenance.

Now that you’ve gotten more familiar with your options, consider what suits you best and book your extension application here at AG!
