Reusable Hair Extensions!

Reusable! That’s the buzz word for hair extensions now! we use the Perfectress line of hair extension’s. Perfectress hair extensions are made from the highest quality Remy human hair. These extensions can be colored and heat styled and blend in well with your own hair.

Did you ever notice how many Chicago women have long beautiful hair? They are hair extensions!

The biggest advantage is that Perfectress hair extensions are reusable! Perfectress hair extensions are attached to the hair with a small aluminum connection ring that is rounded and wrapped in Remy human hair that is the same color as the extension. The ring holds the hair tight but has no hard edges so it will not damage your natural hair. Perfectress hair extensions do not require heat or any type of glue for the application.

What Is A Keratin Treatment?

Keratin treatments are not necessarily new, but they are becoming a “necessity” to a lot of women! The most popular treatment we do is the Coppola Smoothing Treatment.

A keratin treatment treatment will not make your hair “stick straight”. It will relax curl, add shine and remove up to 95% of unwanted frizz. You will find that after a keratin treatment your hair will be shinier, smoother and in much better condition then before the treatment!

If you let your hair dry naturally it will have a much silkier smooth texture. If you blow dry your hair after a keratin treatment you will find it much easier to do so and your styling time will be reduced in half.

What is Balayage?

balayageBalayage is a freehand technique of sweeping or painting highlights onto hair. We use Balayage to add subtle natural highlights or add bold highlights to almost any hair style.

The application is usually minimal at the root and focused on the mid shaft to ends. Our balayage clients do not have an obvious outgrowth when they come back. The best way to describe the end result is lighter and brighter while maintaining depth and dimension.

Balayage is not just for blondes! Brunettes can add that touch of honey or caramel. Redheads can spice up their look with gorgeous golden highlights. Any color is more beautiful when it is multidimensional!
