No colour commitment, no waiting for hair to grow out, no multiple trips to the salon, no flat or dull hair. Just va-va-volume, shiny strands and setting trends made a lot easier. Hair extensions are an elevated level of hair wizardry.

Volume, colour and length can be brought to places where there was none before. Versatile, pretty and available in a range of lengths, colours and types, with just a bundle or few strands of hair extensions, you can instantly transform and enhance your look. Whether it’s voluminous hair you are looking for, or lengthier or shorter strands, or switching-up colours, you can easily do so, without ever worrying about hair damage. Hair extensions are an instant solution to all your hair dilemmas. Sounds cool right? Yeah, we thought so too!

Getting the look of your dreams has never been easier. Here’s all that you wanted to know about hair extensions.

WHAT IS A HAIR EXTENSION?

As the word suggests, hair extensions are clips, pins or wefts with hair in varied lengths, styles, colours and textures attached to them, mostly human or synthetic.

WHY DO YOU NEED AN EXTENSION?

Simply because your styling options are unlimited with a hair extension!

EXTENSIONS ARE ADDED...

FOR MORE VOLUME – If you suffer from hair thinning and need more volume, hair extensions come to rescue. They give volume and add thickness in a matter of minutes or even seconds!

TO PLAY WITH LENGTH – If you can’t wait for your hair to grow out or have your doubts about trying out a shorter hairstyle, play around with hair extensions. They come in different lengths and are the easiest way to sport a different hair length from your original one.

TO SWITCH HAIR COLOUR – Love switching up colours but do not wish to break the bank or fear hair damage? Hair extensions come in different hues, with streaks or can be added as plain highlights if you just want a little colour. You will make them your pal for life.

FOR IMPROVED / DIFFERENT TEXTURE – If you hate your natural hair texture or your hair is too dry and rough, just pick a hair extension in the desired texture and you’re all set!
