Your Maintenance Appointment

Each client receives a free health check appointment at our hair extension salon, to be taken after hair extensions have been worn for a month. After the free check-up, we advise clients to book in for 2 monthly maintenance appointments thereafter. These appointments are designed to increase the longevity of your hair extensions and protect the natural hair.

The cost of your hair extension maintenance appointments will depend on how many hair extensions you have and which member of staff you choose to go with.

During your hair extension maintenance appointment, each extension is carefully removed by one of our skilled technicians. The hair extension is then re-sealed using our exclusive keratin bonding material. Resealing the extension ensures that no shedding will occur and removes any shampoo build up. Your natural hair is then washed, blow dried, trimmed and resectioned by one of our team. This gives us an opportunity to check the health of your natural hair and scalp, and gives you the chance to relax. 

Your hair extensions are then refitted, using the correct micro rings, and your hair styled before leaving the salon. After attending a hair extension maintenance appointment, our clients leave the salon not only looking amazing but feeling like they just got a brand new set of hair extensions.  

We go further than any other salon when it comes to the health of your natural hair. We offer a number of free health checks for our clients over the course of the year. Whilst our micro ring hair extensions are always damage free, our staff are trained to spot possible issues such as underlying scalp and hair conditions. We check for these conditions during every hair extension maintenance appointment and believe that every salon should also be checking for these in order to ensure the best possible service for clients.

You can expect your maintenance appointment to last between 2 and 4 hours depending on the number of extensions we are working with. We offer all of our clients complimentary tea, coffee, alcohol, magazines and wifi access during these appointments.

Hair Extension Maintenance FAQs

How often do you need maintenance on your hair extensions?

To keep your hair extensions looking amazing for longer, hair extension maintenance is key. We recommend that all of our clients attend the salon for a maintenance appointment every 2 months.

Without in-salon maintenance, your hair extensions may slip out of your hair and could become damaged. During the maintenance appointment, your hair and scalp will be washed to remove any shampoo build-up and your hair extensions will be re-fitted to address any slippage.

In between appointments you will also need to follow a good aftercare routine.

Are hair extensions high maintenance?

Hair extensions, when applied correctly, should not be high maintenance. 

If fitted using micro ring attachments, you should treat your hair extensions as you would your own hair. You can still wash your hair as you would, just simply try to avoid applying product to the bonds themselves. 

Frequent in-salon maintenance appointments are required to keep your hair extensions looking their best however, you will only need to attend the salon every two months.  We also work to create a friendly and relaxed atmosphere in the salon so that your maintenance appointments feel like a treat, rather than a chore.

With an in-salon gin bar, you can relax with a drink whilst we take care of your extensions for you!
