HIDDEN BEAD EXTENSIONS

WHAT ARE HAND-TIED HAIR EXTENSION

Hand tied hair extensions are wefts of 100% human Remy hair that are tied to string by human instead of a machine. This prevents bulkiness at the scalp to ensure that your hair lays flat against your head with ultimate flexibility.

WHAT KIND OF EXTENSIONS DO YOU OFFER?

Beaded Row Extensions using hand tied hair wefts. This is installed by using minimal points of contact. Beads are unseen when hair is down or worn up, and continue to be hidden as your extensions grow out. The extensions are comfortable, lay flat, offer flexibility, lightweight and creates flawless, natural looking hair extensions. There is NO heat, tape or glue needed to attach the extensions to your hair, therefore there is less opportunity for damage to your natural hair. Hair Extensions are a great option if you're wanting to add fullness, length or both!

HOW OFTEN DO THESE EXTENSIONS HAVE TO BE MAINTAINED?

I recommend having your extensions, moved up every 6 to 8 weeks to protect the integrity of your scalp.

HOW LONG DOES THE EXTENSION HAIR LAST?

This will vary from person to person. Typically I would expect 6 months for lighter shades, and 6-12 months for darker shades. Lighter colors have gone through a more intense chemical process, similar like our own natural hair does when going lighter! 
Proper home care is key to making your new extension hair last as long as possible before needing to be replaced.

HOW MUCH DO HAND-TIED HAIR EXTENSIONS COST?

At Orchid Hair Studio, I am committed to making sure that you are a great candidate for the extension experience. Every guest starting, and ending point is different, and I want to design a quote that is custom to your specific goals. How many rows and wefts you need depends on where you are and where you want to go. Please take a few minutes to complete my Extension Inquiry Form and I’ll be able to provide you with a customize quote.

CAN I WEAR MY HAIR IN A PONYTAIL?

Absolutely. Actually, there's pretty much no way you can't style your hair with extensions. Low ponytails, top knots, braids, messy buns, half-up styles...I encourage it all!

CAN I WORK OUT OR GO SWIMMING WITH EXTENSIONS?

You sure can. If you're going to be highly active or swimming, we suggest a loose braid or ponytail to prevent any tangling. Don't worry, I'll provide you with all the aftercare information you'll need to take care of your extensions.

WILL IT TAKE ME LONGER TO STYLE MY HAIR?

Yes and no. Let's be honest here. In most cases, you're likely doubling or tripling the amount of hair on your head. I can't deny that it would take longer to dry or style that. BUT your extensions will hold their style FOR DAYS. Most of my extension clients have been able to reduce the number of times they wash and style their hair per week. Your morning routine will be a breeze when you only have to touch up a few pieces of hair.

HOW MANY ROWS WILL I NEED?

That looks different for everyone, but generally, you can expect to add one row for fullness, two rows for fullness and a few inches of length, and three rows for anyone with extremely blunt or thick hair looking to add a lot of length.

I AM ALREADY WEARING HAND-TIED EXTENSIONS, CAN I BOOK WITH YOU?

All new guests are required to fill out the Extensions Inquiry Form, even if you are already wearing extensions. This will give me further information to best assess options moving forward.
