How are Great Lengths Extensions installed?

macchina gl 3200While other fusion extensions use adhesive or melted wax, Great Lengths extensions use a 100% keratin compound bond, which is affixed to your natural hair using a special tool that uses low heat to warm up the bond so it can be hand rolled onto the hair. The process is very comfortable and there's no damage to the natural hair.  The keratin bonds will be undetectable, you'll be able to brush your hair as normal.

How long will you be in the chair? It depends on how much hair I'm installing, but you can use this comparison based on a the time it takes to install a full head of hair extensions of various types to get an idea.

Type Installation Time
Tape Ins 1.5 to 2 hours
Fusions 4 hours +
Great Lengths 4 hours +
Hand Tied Wefts 1.5 to 2 hours

A good match for an active lifestyle.

Thanks to the unique bonds on these extensions, Great Lengths are a perfect match for an active lifestyle. That's why a choose to wear keratin extensions myself. Because the bonds are made with 100% keratin, a protein found in human hair, they behaves like human hair. They expand when exposed to water and contract when dry. If you frequently wet or wash your hair, Great Lengths extensions are up for the task.

Tiny, color-matched bonds make Great Lengths extensions practically invisible.

Clients will always ask about bond visibility. We never want to let on that we're wearing hair extensions, right?  Great Lengths hair extensions are never bulky, thanks to their high quality keratin bonds. Not only are they incredibly small, but they are the color-matched to the wefts. I'm telling you, they are very discreet and nearly impossible to see in your hair.

I can really customize your hair color with Great Lengths Extensions, usually without any chemicals at all.

I customize your Great Lengths extensions in one of two ways, or a combination of both. I can match your hair and desired color to Great Lengths' selection of 80+ pre-colored shades or I can color the extensions if necessary before I install them. After all, they are made of top quality 100% Remy human hair, so they can be dyed and highlighted just like your natural hair. Honestly, I rarely need to customize Great Lengths.  They put a lot of thought and research into the creation of their hair color spectrum in order to match popular colors you see in the salon and common pigments found in natural hair. 

  • Natural collection for darkest licorice to icy blonde
  • Flow collection for dark root to light ends
  • Bronde collection for a sunkissed effect with darker roots
  • Rooted Collection with 5 cm of dark roots and drastic transition to sultry blondes
  • Fashion Colors for intense and vivid colors
  • Special edition for trendy colors
