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 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.

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.
GL Apps the new generation, in a new dimension of magnificent hair awaits you.

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 is the finest quality human hair available on the market today. 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!

Miami salon Hair tips

Here are little tips to help you at home to maintain your hair in between your visit to your stylist:

 

 

 

1/     Bend over and brush your scalp and hair from back to front until the scalp tingles to help distribute the natural oils in your hair.

 

 

2/     Use no more than a quarter-size dollop of shampoo, and rub it between your palms first. Lather your hair for no more than 30 seconds

 

 

3/     Find a shampoo that is less sudsy. Sudsy does not necessarily mean clean. Shampoos that lather too much are often overloaded with moisturizing products, which can leave build-up in your hair.

 

Avant-Garde salon and spa recommend Kerastase.

 

4/    Dampen your hairbrush before brushing to cut down on static electricity. Avoid using a brush on wet hair because it creates hair breakage.

 

 

5/    After you have finished shampooing, rinse your hair with cool water to seal moisture in the hair.

 

 

6/     Wash before you use color. 
It is a myth that unwashed hair takes dye better than clean hair.

 

 

7/      Many volume-enhancing products are heat activated. Instead of merely coming or scrunching them in, aim warm air at your roots, activating the stylers and giving your hair the volume you desire.

 

 

8/     Towel-dry your hair thoroughly before using a hair dryer. This will save you time and avoid damaging your hair with unnecessary heat.

 

 

9/     Apply products 10-15 minutes before you style. Whether you are curling or straightening, apply the product at least 10 minutes in advance to ensure it is fully absorbed into your strands.

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

 

What You Need

mousse or dry shampoo 

Avant-garde suggestion: powder bluff from Kerastase

hairspray shine spray or serum 

Avant-garde suggestion : glimmer shine spay from Moroccanoil

big curl iron

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.

Que es el Balayage? En Avant Garde Salon and Spa, Miami Fl.

 jlo balayage 

Que es el Balayage?

El balayage es una tecnica francesa de coloracion del cabello creada para dar dimension y profundidad a los cabellos,

Que significa la palabra Balayage?

La palabra Balayage en frances significa” pincelada” y se denomina de esta manera  a esta  tecnica ya que se trabaja con la mecha suspendida y apoyada en una paleta, y se deposita el producto aclarante con un ligero deslizamiento de la brocha sobre el cabello.

Cual es el efecto que el Balayage crea en el cabello?

Contrastando con las mechas procesadas en  aluminio el balayage no tiene un patron repetitivo ni  lineas definidas, por lo que es recomendable cuando se busca dar a los cabellos dimension, profundidad y un efecto soleado natural en el cual las mechas se difuminan fusionandose con el color base.

Cual es el nivel de mantenimiento que requiere el Balayage?

El Balayage es una tecnica de relativamente bajo mantenimiento, considerando que no deja barrera entre el cabello procesado y el nuevo crecimiento, es hoy en dia una de las opciones mas convenientes para la mujer actual ya que no es necesario hacer un retoque a las seis semanas sino que se puede extender a ocho o mas y tambien jugar con un champu color entre proceso y proceso para reavivarlas y hacerlas lucir frescas otra vez.

Es el Balayage recomendable para todo tipo de cabellos?

El balayage siempre lucira mejor en cabellos naturales y largos, debido a la transparencia que cobra el cabello al ser procesado, y al movimiento que se puede crear  con un estilo playero de ondas grandes y relajadas. de todas maneras el hecho de tener un color preexistente no siempre es un factor condicionante, se pueden tambien lograr muy buenos resultados en cabellos que han sido coloreados profesionalmente en niveles no mas oscuros que un nivel cinco.

Es el Balayage compatible con otras tecnicas  de coloracion?

Dadas las caracteristicas del efecto que crea el Balayage en el cabello, es el complemento ideal para balancear un proceso de “Ombre” ya que ayuda a distribuir la luminosidad en areas como el marco de la cara  y la cuspide que de otra manera no seria posible hacerlo solo con la tecnica del “Ombre” ya que solo se trabaja en la parte inferior del cabello. Si prestamos atencion, en la actualidad, la mayoria de las modelos top y celebridades tales como Gisele Bundchen o Jessica Biel, son la viva imagen de una tendencia que vino para quedarse.
