Q: How long does my hair need to be for Lucy Hair Enhancement?
For the most natural looking results, hair should be 4-5’’ long at the nape of your neck. Thinner hair can be blended with extensions much more easily than thick hair, and longer layers are better to blend as well. The longer your natural hair, the longer end result is achievable.
Q: Will hair extensions make my hair break off?
When hair extensions are applied and maintained correctly, they do not make natural hair break off. Clients must be willing to take care of and maintain their hair extensions at home and in the salon, and treat them nicely. If you cannot commit to maintenance and using the recommended product- you probably are not a good candidate and would risk damaging your natural hair.
Q: Is Lucy Hair Enhancement applied by heat or glue?
We use three application methods, which we choose individually for the client in the consultation process. The chosen method enables us to achieve the outcome that is desired, all without the use of heat, glue, adhesive, chemicals, or alcohol.
Q: How often do hair extensions need to be maintained?
Maintenance is crucial to having a positive experience with Lucy Hair Enhancement. The worst thing a client could do to their hair is to ignore maintenance. This is typically where hair extension horror stories come from- and usually the client was not educated on how important maintenance is. Your hair extensions need to be maintained every 4-8 weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows and the texture it is. During a consultation, we determine the recommended length of time for maintenance appointments. Most Lucy clients prefer to come in every 6 weeks and have their color and hair extensions taken care of at the same time.
Q: What kind of maintenance is involved daily?
Brushing with a soft, board bristle brush and the use of good quality product (we will recommend what to use) will keep your hair feeling and looking amazing. Lucy Stylists are trained to extensively educate each client about brushing, washing, and product use to ensure a great experience, and help you protect your investment.
Q: Speaking of investment- how much is Lucy Hair Enhancement, and is it reusable?
Each individual client starts with different hair, and wants a different outcome with hair extensions. Because of this reason, it is extremely hard to give exact prices without seeing each client in person, and looking at their natural hair. The desired outcome with hair extensions could be filling out a haircut or adding thickness, to greatly adding volume and length- this creates a wide range of prices. Typically, prices for initial application and hair range between $450-800. Obviously, to get a more tailored quote we need to meet you and hear about your hair dreams in a consultation. Unlike many other types of hair extension, Lucy Hair Enhancement can be re-used for around 12 months, which saves our clients a fortune.
Q: Can I swim with my Lucy hair? Can I use styling tools, like curling irons?
You can do everything with Lucy Hair that you would do without them- but you’ll look and feel fabulous with them! When swimming, we recommend a braid or adding a moisturizer before hand to prevent tangles. Using 100% human hair ensures it can be styled just like your natural hair, with flat and curling irons, blow driers, etc. Most Lucy clients find that their hair is actually less work to style WITH Lucy Hair Enhancement, giving it more volume and styling hold.
