FAQ

Is it possible to use hot tools on extensions?

You can style with a curling or flat iron just like normal hair!
If you use heated tools, choose human hair extensions; synthetic extensions can only be heated to a certain temperature. 
If you style with heat, use heat-protection products and weekly deep-conditioning bath treatments.
Please using a low heat setting: under 180℃. Anything higher might cause damage. 
Extensions can dry out and get split ends! To protect your investment, please go easy on the heated styling.

Do hair extensions hurt your real hair?

Not really!
The most significant cause of damage happens when you don't remove the hair extensions correctly. Without the right tools and techniques you'll break or fray your hair.
It's best to have a professional hairstylist apply your extensions to avoid tangles and other messy complications.

Temporary clip-ins do the least damage and are the most natural extensions. They can be frequently removed to let your hair breathe.

 

How much do hair extensions cost?

We consider the type, quantity, and placement of extensions to determine cost.

Do you ever wear a ponytail? Do you curl? Have you dyed your hair? If yes, mention this to your stylist.

Partial extensions range from ¥7,800 - ¥15,600.
These can be for highlights or hair that surrounds the face ( 15 - 30 pieces, Medium ). 

Medium (40 – 45cm) ........¥520 +tax per piece
Long (50 – 55cm) .............¥620 +tax per piece
Tape Change ..................  ¥260 +tax per piece

▲She got 60 pieces such a highlights style.
It looks slightly unnatural.
So in that case, we recommend to use curling iron.

It will look more natural !

        

▲She got 90 pieces. Even if you get more than 90 pieces, it will not make your roots look shaggy and messy. This will keep your hair looking natural.

The cost includes extensions's haircut and styling to help the extensions look like a natural part of your hair.

We recommend getting a layered haircut before you get extensions. Extensions are available for un-layered styles, however, the cost is higher (you’ll need around 90 pieces) and they’ll be very heavy.
With layers, it’s easier to blend extensions and they’ll feel more comfortable! You’ll also need fewer and there’s less maintenance.

I’m experiencing discomfort. Help!

This is a common problem for people with sensitive scalps. It might take time to get used to your new hair extensions.

This is very normal!  If you still feel discomfort after 3 days, tell your stylist.

If the hair extensions are too heavy this also might cause discomfort. If you have fine hair, you will feel slight pain in your scalp if the extensions are too heavy. Your natural hair will need to be strong enough to support the weight of your new extensions.

We understand you want the most voluminous hair, however, it depends on your natural hair type and condition. 

 

I have curly hair. Can I get extensions? 

Yes! 

We use 100% human hair extensions, so to achieve an ideal blend we recommend getting a straight perm to match the extensions to your hair. We can also perm the extensions.

 

Can I play sports?

Sure!

BUT swimming pools and Onsen will shorten the life of your extensions. 

 

How do I maintain my extensions?

Having hair extensions doesn’t mean ignoring your natural hair! 

We recommend *gently* brushing your extensions from bottom to top at least once a day to avoid frizzy hair.  
Also, wash your extensions gently! Don’t apply any deep conditioning products and make sure to dry your roots completely, otherwise the hair.
