Great Lengths Extensions


Great Lengths Extensions

Founder David Gold established Great Lengths Extensions in 1991 and launched into the UK market on London’s famous George St. Great Lengths revolutionised the concept of hair extensions and has been leading the world market ever since.

Michael Jane, currently their flagship salon was the the first in the world to use the Great Lengths concept. Our very own Senior Consultant Susanne Altamore has been involved in training Great Lengths salons world-wide.

Great Lengths Extensions

Great Lengths uses the finest quality 100% human hair. The hair is simply attached using a Polymer Keratin Bond that mimics the molecular structure of your natural hair. This process is gentle and non damaging. A perfect solution for both men & women looking to enhance or change their look without creating damage to their own hair.

Although it is impossible to give an exact price without consultation as each service is bespoke, below is a price guide.

All consultations complimentary.

Q

Do Great Lengths extensions damage your own hair?

A

The Great Lengths technologies ensure that there is no damage to your own hair, provided that you follow the correct after care program as recommended by your Great Lengths technician and you visit the salon for a monthly maintenance appointment. Your hair will be in the same condition after the extensions are removed as it was before, if not better. A before photo will be taken for you to refer to at any time.

Q

Where does the hair come from?

A

All Great Lengths hair originates from India. Because of their shared genetic origins, the basic structure of Indian hair is similar to that of European hair. Traditionally, Indian women would cut off their long braid of hair either at their wedding -as a symbol of starting a new life- or to ask a special favour from a deity at a religious temple. Using Indian hair for Great Lengths extensions allows numerous benefits.

  • The hair’s cuticle is intact – Indian women’s hair is typically of an exceptional quality because chemical or heat damage from styling is rare.
  • Weaving the hair into a plait ensures that all the hair is aligned in one direction, minimising tangling
  • The hair is homogeneous in colour and thickness
Q

How are the extensions connected to your own hair?

A

It is the bond that distinguishes Great Lengths from all other hair extension techniques. Great Lengths utilises a patented ‘protein’ bond. This bond is of a similar molecular composition as that of human hair which enables the bond to withstand any conditions that your own hair can withstand. The protein bond is activated by the applicator whilst fitting the extensions to your own hair. The similarities in molecular composition ensure that there is no damage caused to your own hair, unlike other hair extension systems that utilise glues, welding, waxing or knotting techniques that can damage your hair.

Q

How long will the Great Lengths extensions last?

A

We recommend that three months after the initial installation you visit the salon for a consultation. Further appointments are dependent on the individual and will vary according to ones natural hair growth.

Q

I am losing my hair. Should I use Great Lengths hair extensions?

A

This would depend on the reason for the hair loss. Great Lengths is ideal for adding volume to naturally thinning hair however, We do not recommend hair extensions for hair loss due to illness. A free consultation with one of our in house trichologist will help to assess the reason for you hair loss and ways to remedy the situation.

Q

Can I use chemical products on the Great Lengths hair extensions?

A

Chemical services can be applied by an approved Great Lengths technician only as they are trained to use the correct products and procedures that will maintain the integrity of the protein bond.

Q

Do the extensions pull your hair out?

A

Great Lengths hair extensions do not add sufficient weight to your own hair to cause the hair to be pulled out.

Q

How do you take the Great Lengths extensions out?

A

Your technician can easily remove the extensions from your own hair, without causing any damage by using a Great Lengths removal solution. It is recommended that when it is time to remove your extensions, you return to the salon to have them removed. The cost to remove the extensions is from £75 per hour..

Q

Can I reuse the extensions?

A

Great Lengths hair extensions are not reusable due to the destruction of the protein bonds during the removal process.

Procedure

Whilst alternative systems use techniques like welding, waxing, gluing or knotting, which will stress and very often damage the hair, Great Lengths believes in a much more gentle principle called modulating. We have created an extremely advanced method of bonding the extension strands to your own hair. The point of attachment is composed of polymer chains with a molecular structure very similar to that of human hair. The bond is activated by the patented applicator which securely melds the artificial strand with your own hair.

Care & Removal

The following guidelines must be observed to extend the life span of your Great Lengths Hair Extensions. Poor aftercare can cause the bonds to deteriorate or break down.

Extensions will behave as your own natural hair will, and average natural hair loss is normally 50 – 100 strands per day. We allow for a natural loss of a small percentage of a full head of extensions throughout the course of three to four months. We do not expect extensions to last more than this period of time without regular maintenance.

Procedure for Shampooing

  • Your extensions must be shampooed at least once a week with pH balanced products.
  • Mid lengths to tips only must be conditioned and detangled.

Hair Care

  • Your extensions must be shampooed at least once a week with pH balanced products.
  • Always dry hair roots thoroughly after shampooing to prevent bond breakdown.
  • When blow drying, mild heat should be used and cold air blasted over once hair is totally dry.
  • Tongs or heated rollers can be used but they must be kept away from the hair root and extension bond.
  • Always use a soft brush from the hair root to tip to avoid matting.
  • Separate bonds by hand at least once a week after the first month.
  • Whilst swimming is possible, in some instances due to the chemicals used in the water you may experience some breakage of the bonds. It is necessary therefore to rinse your hair and dry the roots as soon as possible and always use Final Rinse before and after going swimming to prevent bond breakdown.
  • Any form of activity carried out regularly such as Aerobics/Sauna/Steam etc will impair the life span of the bonds due to a persistently damp environment; however precautions as previously suggested could remedy the problem.

It is important to note that your 100% Natural Human Hair Extensions can be straightened or curled very easily. If the hair is left to dry naturally, it will dry with a natural wave and texture.

Removing your Great Lengths Extensions

It is strongly recommended that when it is time to remove your extensions you return to us to do so, to avoid damage to your hair.

The cost to remove the extensions is from £75.
