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.

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.

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

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.

What do you need to know about the different

quality of Hair .

 

European Hair – Unsuitable and improbable for quality hair extensions.


European hair is not only difficult to find in significant quantities, but is generally too thin in diameter (especially blond hair) to be of much use for hair extensions. Few European women would be willing to give up their hair to hair companies and, if they did, it would be necessary for their hair to never have been chemically treated. Very unlikely….
Whatever the competition may claim!

Chinese Hair – Unsuitable for quality hair extensions.


Even though Chinese hair can be found in large quantities, this type of hair is not compatible with ours because it has a round cross-section as opposed to the oval shape of Caucasian hair, making it too thick and rigid to be compatible with European hair.

 

Asian Hair Not Suitable

Brushed Indian Hair. Unsuitable for quality hair extensions


On a daily basis, tens of millions of Indian women gather the hair that is collected… This method of collection results in balls of yarn where the hair lies mixed in all directions. This hair is of inferior quality, is cheap to purchase and has to be subjected to chemical treatments which are explained subsequently.
It is the widespread use of brushed Indian hair that causes so many unsatisfactory results in hair extensions.

Brushed Indian Hair. Unsuitable for quality hair extensions


Even though Indian brushed hair can be found in large quantities and is traditionally used for wigs and toupees, this quality hair is not indicated for hair extensions because the cuticle facing in both directions will inevitably result in tangling.
Hair extension companies employ widespread use of brushed Indian hair passing it off as high quality Temple hair since it is inexpensive and easy to process.

Chemical treatment of brushed hair. Unsuitable for quality hair extensions
In order to remove the cuticle and try to avoid tangling, this mixed hair must undergo an aggressive chemical treatment that destroys the hair’s cuticle layer (inevitably destroying the hair structure as well). The hair is left opaque and fragile

 

This kind of hair is acceptable for the preparation of wigs and toupees since these are worn separate to the client”s own hair and are generally dry-cleaned, allowing the silicone layer to stay intact and the hair to remain shiny.

Indian Temple Hair – Great Lengths hair


Great Lengths utilizes 100% human hair of the best quality. This is Indian Temple Remi hair (all hair cuticle facing the same direction) and in virgin condition. Genetically, Indian hair is very similar to Caucasian hair in its basic structure. It is of extraordinary quality since it has never been exposed to harsh chemical treatments. Indian Temple hair is optimal for the employment of quality hair extensions, but only makes financial sense to purchase if the subsequent treatments necessary to create all colors will not damage this superior quality hair. In the pages that follow you will understand why our processes are unique and justify why we pay a substantially higher price for Indian Temple hair.

Indian Temple Hair – Great Lengths hair


Great Lengths utilizes only remy hair whiche means that the cuticle layers are all facing the same direction from root to end and, therefore, do not tangle.

This ensures that our extensions will not tangle with your own hair. They will blend in superbly and provide easy maintenance, longevity and resistance to an active lifestyle

 

Indian Temple Hair – Great Lengths hair

 

Great Lengths uses the best hair in the world. 100% natural human hair exclusively from Indian temples. We are proud of the domcumented fact that all proceeds received by the Temple for the hair which is donated freely and happily to them by the faithful is used to provide funding of schools, hospitals and orphanages in the Indian society.

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
