Benefits of Hair Extensions

If you have been thinking about adding extensions to your strands but might have some hesitations, don’t worry! We’ll chat about some of the benefits of these below to make your decision easier. Then, contact Salon Antoine to an appointment and have our stylists pamper you!


Perhaps one of the most common reasons why people get extensions is because it instantly adds length to your hair. If you have short locks at this time and don’t want to wait for them to grow, with extensions you don’t have to! Plus, you can wear them as long as you want. Typically, around eight weeks, we would have you come back to have them removed, but if you want your short length back before that, just swing by. Along with making your hair longer, you can treat them just like your real strands and straighten or curl them to make your whole head blend seamlessly. If you want to add new hair color to your strands without having to go through the process, you can do so with extensions. Then, when you’re ready to go back to your original shade, you can have them taken out. What’s not to love?

You’ll love that if you currently have thin hair or simply want more volume, extensions will help create richness. These also work really well for any type of hair or texture.Along with that, whether you decide to leave your hair straight or create some waves for the day, you’ll notice that it’s fuller than it was previously. Of course, if you don’t want to be wearing them every day, you might just consider them for an event that you have coming up or have them taken out by one of our stylists as soon as you prefer. The great thing is it’s up to you whether you want to get extensions for your whole head or just half if your hair is already thicker. They can also help to mask split ends as well and ultimately help lower the appearance of damages.

When it comes to extensions, you will be happy to hear that they can be very low maintenance. Even when it comes to washing your hair, you might stick to just washing it once or twice a week. This can help to prevent and avoid having them wear out less quickly. Not only that, but you may want to let your strands air dry as often as you can rather than grabbing for the hair dryer. As mentioned, you are able to treat these as if they are your own hair, but we would suggest creating styles without hot tools when possible. You can utilize curlers with no heat or make braids to avoid damage. If you’re ever dealing with tangling, you can use a brush and slowly get rid of knots. Plus, you’ll love that they can last you as long as six months!
