Bridal

Clean or Dirty Hair?


Please come to your appointment with CLEAN, DRY hair. If you know for a fact you dont have oily hair, day old hair is fine. But any natural oil/grease at the scalp is extremely difficult to work with.




How should I prep my hair for wedding day?


This varies for each person, depending on hair type. We will discuss a customized plan for your hair prep at your trial. If you have fine hair that doesn't hold a curl well, it's best to prep with a volumizing mousse. I recommend Kevin Murphy Body Builder. If you have extremely curly or highly textured hair, & you know you'd like it smoothed out for the big day, it's best to get a blow out the day prior.




How long does hair take for each person?


I plan an hour for my brides, & 45 minutes for every other person. If we have the time, it's always a good idea to have a 30 minute window at the end for wiggle room.




How do I book Bridal Services?


Go to "Wedding Inquiries" in the main menu. Fill out a wedding day request form. A brochure will be sent to you immediately. As soon as I have a chance to review your request details, & confirm that I have the requested date available, I will contact you to move forward with wedding day details.




How can I book my hair trial?


All hair trials are booked with me in-salon at Spalon Montage - Woodbury, MN. 1-952-915-2900, extension #4. Ask for Kayla! The call center will help you find an available time on my schedule! I am in the salon Mondays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays only. I highly recommend booking a hair trial as CLOSE to your wedding day as possible (no more than 2-3 weeks out is ideal).




What should I bring to my hair trial?


Your pretty little self, any accessories, hair extensions, and/or a veil if you're considering wearing one! Maybe Mom or a girlfriend for shits and giggles - mostly giggles.




Should I get extensions for my wedding day?


The short answer is extensions add so much fullness, & make everything more amazing. The long answer is, it really depends on the look and style you're going for on wedding day, and what type of hair you already have to work with. In general, most of the big, boho braids and down styles you see on pinterest & on instagram involve some type of extensions. So unless you're naturally blessed by the hair gods in both length and thickness, you'll most likely need some artificial help to acheive that specific look. For many updos, extensions aren't always necessary.




When should the bride get their hair done on wedding day?


Preferrably not first, and not last. Somewhere in the middle is great! I always plan an hour for my brides. If possible, it's best to have makeup done first, so your makeup artist won't have to be so careful not to ruin the hair when applying airbrush, moving hair out of your face, etc. We can always trade ladies in and out too, to make sure the bride is done by a designated time. For example, if I have a bridesmaid in my chair, and we need to get started on the bride in order to have her finished by a specific time, we can flip-flop, and then return to doing the bridesmaid's hair after the bride is all finished being glammed up!




Is there a price difference between updos & down styles?


No. I charge one flat rate per bridesmaid/MOB across the board. Down styles are NOT quicker, because I spend extra time on setting, and making sure these curls are going to last for an entire wedding day. It's not the same as every day curls. I charge for a combination of my time and experience, and not for what look we choose.





Great Lengths Fusion Hair Extensions

How long do they last?


Up to 6 months depending on your hair type, lifestyle, how fast your hair grows, and how well they are taken care of. My average client wears them for 4-5 months. Brunettes tend to get longer wear at 5-6 months because the bonds are even more invisibe in darker hair.




Can you re-use the hair?


No. The bond is made out of a keratin protein, and once the bond is softened with our heat transfer system, the bond cannot be re-softened or re-used.




Will extensions damage my hair?


Some extension methods can absolutely damage your hair, but not the Great Lengths method if installed and maintained properly. Both proper at home care and removal by a licensed Great Lengths specialist ensure safe extention wear. & did you know? The GL keratin protein bond expands and contracts when hot/cold or wet/dry, just like the keratin protein in our natural hair strands. This eliminates the "pinching" or "snapping" of the natural hair you see with metal and plastic bead attatchments.




Can I color my hair with extensions in?


Yes! Both color retouches, & foil root touch up's in between applications! Great Lengths hair is 100% human hair, and can be treated as such. We do not recommend bleaching our hair extensions, however. It is always best to acheive your ideal color beforehand, and then custom match your hair extensions to your existing hair color.




How much do they cost?


The cost of Great Lengths varies greatly. Factors include the length of hair ordered, and the amount of hair needed to match your natural density or acheive the overall look you are going for. There is no one size fits all. This is a completely custom service. A look you see on one person may cost you twice as much, or half the cost of what that other person paid. Gap/Volumizing services start at $250. For very thick hair, the price can range all the way up to $2500 - $3000 for a full head lengthening service. For reference, my clients with average hair, usually do between 3-4 bundles for a full head lengthening service, which is an average cost of about $1500-$2000. I always offer 20% off for all first time Great Lengths clients, & for all of my brides.




Why Great Lengths?


Okay, speaking from personal experience here... Great Lengths fusions are BY FAR the best possible extension on the market as far as quality, invisibility, and safe-wear goes. The bonds are tiny, and made out of a synthetic keratin protein, mimicking the same keratin in our natural strands. No metal beads, plastics, wefts, tracks, etc. They are so lightweight, comfortable, undetectable, and move/grow with your natural hair beautifully. There are zero concerns of being at the beach with wet hair, and worrying about your extensions showing, or the wind blowing to show off a track hiding in your hair. These babies are the FERARI of the hair extension world, and boy are they worth every single penny for that everyday good-good hair. They can be washed, dryed, curled, braided, worn up, down, and all around. You can swim with them, work out with them, and color them. All of the Great Lengths hair extensions have a natural, soft wave, which makes for easy air-dried looks. Once you go Great Lengths, you get it, & you never go back!




What is the maintenance like?


Great Lengths are actually pretty dang low-maitenance. But there are 3 important parts to taking care of them: 1. Using a quality, sulfate free shampoo & conditioner. Highly recommend the Kevin Murphy brand for use with hair extensions. Sulfates, and the chemicals in cheap shampoos will break down the keratin bonds of your GL's faster. It's so important to switch over to an extension safe shampoo/conditioner. 2. Anti-tap. If you have hard water, a chlorine or salt water pool, or work out more than just a couple times a week, anti-tap might be for you! It's just a quick spray you can apply to your bonds after you shower/swim/work out to keep salts, sweat, & chlorine from breaking down those bonds prematurely. 3. Brushing your bonds with the Great Lengths extenson brush. A custom brush made to go right over your tiny bonds from scalp to ends. This is SO IMPORTANT to prevent mats in your hair!




Do I need a consultation for hair extensions?


Yes! For both Great Lengths and Hot Heads services, free consults are required. At your consult we will discuss your desired look, options/maitenance, custom color match you, go over the hair ordering and deposit process, and can get your installation date on the books!




How do I book a consultation?


All hair extension consults are completely free, 30 minute appointments, that can be booked with me in-salon at Spalon Montage - Woodbury, MN. 1-952-915-2900, extension #4. Ask for Kayla!




Gap, Volumizing, & Lengthening Services... What's the difference?


A Gap Service is a custom exension service focused on filling in an area, gap, or a hole in a haircut or hairstyle. This can be beacuse of breakage or thin sides, that won't grow with the rest of the hair. A Volumizing Service is done by spacing GL's throughout the entire head to acheive a fuller look. The purpose isnt to acheive extra length, but just to give more body and volume to a hairstyle. Lengthening Services acheive both volume and length, for a big makeover. It requires the most amount of hair to be used.





Hot Heads Tape In Hair Extensions

Who is the ideal client for Hot Heads?


Hot Heads are gorgeous, high quality hair extensions that are perfect for people with super thick hair, looking for a quicker install, and a cost that is more spread out over the course of 6 months. You are able to acheive a lot of density, very fast with this method.




How long do they last & can the hair be re-used?


The hair CAN be re-used 3-4 times, and occasionallly longer depending on how well the hair is taken care of. An application of Hot Heads will last 6-8 weeks before they need to be moved up again, and will continue needing to be moved up every 6-8 weeks.




How much do they cost?


There is no one answer fits all, as with most extensions. There are so many factors involved such as the density of your natural hair, the length of your natural hair vs. the length of the hair you desire, & the overall look you are trying to achieve. Volume/Gap Services start at $80. Full head applications start out at anywhere from $600 for finer hair, and can range all the way up to $2000 for very thick hair. The hair extension experience is SO CUSTOM, so to get an accurate quote that is specific to your hair and your needs, a consultation is key. The initial cost of Hot Heads is generally lower than the initial cost of Great Lengths, but the trade in is bi-monthly move up maintenance that costs more money at each move up.




How much does it cost to re-use the hair?


The cost to move up/re-use your Hot Heads is $20 per sandwich. This will apply every 6-8 weeks at each re-use.




Gap, Volumizing, & Lengthening Services... What's the difference?


A Gap Service is a custom exension service focused on filling in an area, gap, or a hole in a haircut or hairstyle. This can be beacuse of breakage or thin sides, that won't grow with the rest of the hair. A Volumizing Service is done by spacing hair extensions throughout the entire head to acheive a fuller look.

Can I color my hair with extensions in?


Yes, color retouches while your Hot Heads are still in, are completely fine. Hot Heads hair extensions are 100% human hair, and can be treated as such. For foil/balayage touchups and other lightening services, it is best to have it all done on the same day as your move up appointment. (Every 6-8 weeks.) The extensions can be removed, your hair can be foiled/lightened, and then your extensions can be put back in again for your "move up". We do not recommend bleaching our hair extensions. It is always best to acheive your ideal color beforehand, and then custom match your hair extensions to your existing hair color.




How do I book a consultation?


All hair extension consults are completely free, 30 minute appointments, that can be booked with me in-salon at Spalon Montage - Woodbury, MN. 1-952-915-2900, extension #4. Ask for Kayla!
