Extensions for a Sleek Look

By March 25, 2022No Comments

Do you want to add some length to your current hairstyle? We have just the answer – extensions! To get the process started, visit us at Salon Antoine when you have a chance. We are open Monday through Saturday, so call us today to schedule an appointment.

Benefits of Extensions

Hair extensions are popular because they are so versatile. Not only do they make your locks longer instantly, but they also add volume. This is great if you happen to have thin or fine hair. They take the time out of waiting for your strands to grow longer. Rather than having to wait a year or so for a desired length, it can be achieved in one to two hours. We can’t forget to mention that they make you look forward to wanting to style your hair again! Sometimes, you might not always look forward to straightening or curling your strands if they happen to lack dimension, but extensions will change all of that. Plus, these are not permanent just in case you decide to go back to a shorter length in the future.

People love hair extensions because you can style your hair as usual. Whether you decide to add some waves for the day, rock a straight and sleek look, or throw them up in a ponytail, the options are limitless. They can be treated as if they are your natural hair! While sometimes ladies choose to get extensions that match their hair color, you can definitely go with ones that are a shade or two lighter or darker. This way, you will have the highlights or lowlights that you want quickly. Even further, you can wash them just like you typically wash your natural locks. However, to prevent them from getting too loose and losing their quality, you may choose to add water to your hair a little less frequently than you’re used to.

Oftentimes, we think about maintenance when we decide to change up our hair. You’ll be happy to hear that extensions can be low-maintenance. Depending on the type that you get, you won’t have to worry for a few months or so. Of course, you don’t have to wait that long and come see us soon as you’d like to try a different style or to have them taken out. When you do stop by and we’ve eliminated them from your hair, you’ll see that there is no damage. This is another reason why extensions are such a fan-favorite. They give you the desired length and fullness so that you can ultimately use those hot tools a little less. Plus, they blend in perfectly with the rest of your hair.

Have we piqued your interest with hair extensions? Well, then pick a day when you’re free to stop into Salon Antoine and try them for yourself. Our store is located at 11092 Lee Highway in Fairfax, VA.
