Why do you primarily use great lengths extensions?

Great Lengths uses quality, ethically-sourced, non-chemically treated Indian hair. It is applied to your hair using Great Lengths’ patented keratin bond. In our experience, it is the best quality hair in the industry. 

What lengths are available?

Great Lengths offers the following lengths: 8 inches, 12 inches, 16 inches, 20 inches and 24 inches. The price per bundle of hair generally increases with length. After the application, your stylist will blend the extensions into your hair to ensure a natural, seamless look.

How much do they cost?

Each service is customized to our guests, so costs vary greatly. Book a complimentary consultation with one of our Great Lengths stylists and they will be able to give you an appropriate cost for your desired look. Factors include desired hair length, and the number of ‘bundles’ needed to achieve the look. 

What is a bundle?

One bundle of Great Lengths hair consists of 25 pieces.

How long do they last?

If cared for properly, extensions should last three to five months, at which point they will need to be removed and new hair will need to be put in. Various factors that could affect this time include the condition of the guest’s natural hair, their lifestyle, and the type of application performed (lengthening, volumizing, etc.).

What comes with my extensions service?

Each extensions service includes a complimentary consultation with colour matching prior to the service, and complimentary blending during the appointment. Our guests are encouraged to book complimentary maintenance cuts every four to six weeks, so that the service provider can assess the bonds and help you to address any styling or maintenance issues.

For the month of September 2016, guests who receive an extensions service will also receive a complimentary blowout at Butter Beauty Parlour.

How do i maintain them?

Washing your Hair:

After your initial appointment, we ask that you do not wash your hair for 48 hours so that the bonds have time to fully set. When washing, focus shampoo on the scalp and conditioner on the ends of the hair. Always ensure that you are using an oil free shampoo and conditioner.

Styling your hair:

Although the bonds are extremely secure, be gentle when brushing your hair. Brushing daily will help to avoid tangles. We have Great Lengths Brushes that are designed to properly brush through bonds available for purchase in the salon. Always use oil-free products at the root and near the bonds. 

It is best to always blow-dry your hair, as the bonds can loosen if left wet. 

Never apply a hot tool directly on the bonds. If you curl or straighten your hair, apply the heat a few inches away from the bond.
