frequently asked questions...

ARE YOU TAKING NEW GUESTS?

Right now, I accept new handtied extension guests. Your color service and haircut is included in the installation packages and are available to new extension guests. I am no longer accepting new color or haircut only clients. 

HOW MUCH DO HAIR EXTENSIONS COST?

Your initial installation package value will vary based on your natural hair and your goals. The amount of hair needed, rows installed and desired length all play a role into your initial cost.

HOW DO I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?

If you are a new extension guest, please fill out my extension application form. If you are an existing guest, please contact me directly through my email - rachelleidlerhair@yahoo.com

 

WHAT ARE MAINTENANCE APPOINTMENTS?

Maintenance appointments are scheduled visits where we move up your extensions and "tighten" them. As your hair grows out, so do you extensions. They need to be moved up or "tightened" every 8-10 weeks. Maintenance appointments are non-negotiable. 

 

HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED TO PURCHASE NEW HAIR?

I cannot make a specific guarantee because it truly depends on how well you take care of the extensions as well as proper at home care and use of proper products. Most of my extension clients can go 8-12 months before they replace their hair. 

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR EXTENSIONS?

Anyone can be a potential extension candidate! It all depends on your desired look - whether you have thick hair, thin hair, long hair or short hair, extensions can absolutely be for you! You can get extensions for the length and fullness you've always dreamt of, to "fill in the blanks" that seem to not grow, or just to add a little thickness to the length you currently have. Extensions can be fully catered to your needs.

HOW SHOULD I WASH MY HAIR EXTENSIONS?

You can shampoo and condition your extensions just like your normal hair. Make sure to get under every row and rinse thoroughly to rinse all the product out!

CAN YOU WEAR YOUR HAIR UP IN A PONYTAIL?

You can style and wear them just like your regular hair. High pony, braids, curl, top knot. One of my favorite things about hand tied extensions if the flexibility you have with your styling. You can pull your hair up in a high ponytail and nobody will know.

ARE THEY DAMAGING?

No! The hand tied method is said to be the best for your hair and the least damaging to your natural hair. 

HOW LONG DOES THE HAIR LAST AND HOW OFTEN DO YOU NEED MAINTENANCE?

You will need to move up your extensions every 8 - 12 weeks, depending on the client and your natural growth rate. They are fairly low maintenance! It is not needed to purchase new hair every time with hand tied / beaded row, the hair wefts can last from 9 months to over a year! Again, this can vary based on the clients at home care and how well they are cared for.

CAN YOU SWIM WITH THEM?

Yes, you can! It is recommended before you swim to rinse your hair extensions first and add a leave in conditioner to protect them from chlorine. I also recommend putting them in a low ponytail or loose braid to prevent them from tangling.
