Hair weaves and extensions are part of today's fashion, trend, and style. Clients often add extensions to change hair color, texture, style or for adding fullness and length. Extensions can be used as a temporary cosmetic solution, camouflaging breaking and damaged hair. There is no one size fits all with hair extension service. A consultation is highly recommended for clients who are trying these services, particularly for first time service. The following information is for guidance when considering hair extensions.
There are several considerations when deciding on hair extensions: desired style, how long you plan to wear the style, hair selection, installation technique, and budget.

Hair Weave Techniques available at Salon Baptiste
Quick weaves and bonding services normally cost less than other techniques; however, these styles are very temporary. Quick weaves or bonding is perfect for special occasion styles when you do not plan to wear the style beyond your next shampoo. Bonding is not recommended for long term use because it can damage the hair. Bonding to client hair typically does not hold up when shampooed and must be removed with caution. Quick weave (full head style) can be applied using a water soluble hair protection solution to completely avoid damage. Extensions bonded with the clients hair out typically run $95 and up for shampoo, condition, blow, add extension hair, cut and style. Consultation is required for quick weave designs. Service price does not include cost of hair.
|Hair weaves using cornrow braid foundations are great for long term. This technique is great for extra length and fullness with or without the top of client's hair out. Go from short to long or long to short using any color or texture of hair with a variety of style choices. Salon Baptiste specializes in other sew in techniques that do not require braiding. Net weaves are great for clients with thinning on the top of the head (male pattern balding). A full head sew in is frequently used by natural hair clients who like to explore different textures. Sew in service can last up to 12 or more weeks. Sew-in weaves for adding fullness start around $120 for shampoo, condition, blow dry, sew-in design, trim and style. Full head designs average $250.|
Strand by strand technique provides another option for clients with relaxed, straight, wavy & slight curl textures. Keratin tipped Remy hair is used for either heat fusion or cold link extensions. Some of the client's hair is left out to blend over the extensions. Clients must have 4-5 inches in length for coverage. This technique provides incredible movement, styling options, fullness and length. This is one of the most glamorous and believable extension techniques and works well with straight, wavy, relaxed and perm hair. Classic keratin tips and/or cold links are great for adding highlights without using permanent color. You can create hair colors and amazing highlight and texture effects with this technique. Frequent salon visits are highly recommended to enjoy this technique for months. Service does not damage the hair when applied and cared for by a trained professional. Price varies with size of head and density of hair, the amount of hair extensions to be added, and the length of hair extensions. Full head cost from $800 including cost of hair (price varies with amount, length and color of hair added). Highlights can be added as low as $10 per single tip.
Lace Front Wigs are the hottest new trend used to achieve glamorous looks. Originally used to prepare actors for theatre, these pieces are now being used by celebrities everywhere. Lace fronts provide solutions for clients who experience extreme hair loss for medical reasons or loss of hairline caused by traction alopecia. Now clients seeking for new looks in hair color, texture, length and volume are using lace fronts. Lace fronts create the illusion of hair growing directly from the scalp around your hairline. It is always best to order custom design lace front wigs to ensure your fit and special needs. Lace hair pieces come in frontals, ¾ partials, and full wig units. We can combine the units with integration of your own hair and/or sew in techniques.
