Great Lengths hair extensions are handcrafted in Italy. The hair originates from the temples in India where it has been willingly donated as a sacrifice to the gods of the temple. 100% of Great Lengths hair is ethically sourced via the temple hair auctions, Indian virgin temple hair is highly recommended for the best hair extensions due to the fact that it has never been chemically processed through bleaching and colouring and the texture of the hair matches that of Caucasian markets.
Great Lengths hair extensions are prebonded with a synthesized keratin polymer. Many, if not all hair extension companies have started to claim that they use a keratin bond however Great Lengths was the first company to develop its patented bond and is still the only hair extension bond with functional benefits. The functionality is the Great Lengths bond has the ability to expand and contract with human hair when wet or dry, resulting in no strain or damage on the natural hair.
Great Lengths application technology extends to the innovative application machines used to mould the bond of the hair extension securely and discretely to the natural hair. The Great Lengths Ultrasonic 5000 uses cold fusion technology and techniques which enable flat and round bond formations. Ultrasound vibrations soften the synthesized keratin polymer, this method is quick and versatile.
The Classic 3200 machine uses a gentle thermal method to soften the keratin polymer and a rolling technique which is best for round bond formations. The Classic application machine is the original and still unmatched for neat precise application.
Great Lengths hair extensions can be applied for either volume, length or both! We can tailor the amount of hair extensions applied to achieve the desired result that you are after.
No. We advise all clients to refresh their colour 48 hour prior to getting Great Lengths extensions applied, as well as having a haircut to tidy up any split ends. This is best done in our salon, as we can colour hair and extensions.
Your hair must be longer than 10cms long for us to apply Great Lengths to your hair.
Not at all! We can put various different colours in your hair. In fact, Great Lengths now have Balayage or Colour Blocking extensions. Unless you have one colour all over, then the majority of people have some sort of variation in colours throughout their hair. We perfectly match the extensions to your own hair.
We recommend Great Lengths Hair-care products to all of our clients. There is a Shampoo, Conditioner, Anti-tap water and Applicator as well as a brush.
Anti-tap water is specially formulated water which balances the PH levels in your hair.
Anti-Tap Water adds moisture by eliminating the damaging effects of alkalinity. Anti-Tap also contains BIOTIN to promote the natural balance of the scalp and hair. GSP-T® protects against environmental conditions.
