I can say with full honesty, that every single one of us LOVED our hair! I absolutely recommend her to any bride, & would hire her again & again!
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's "Body Builder", which I carry in studio, and sell online. 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 my studio located in Sola Salons in West St. Paul. I am located in Suite #40, at their Robert Street location!
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.
How long do they last?
3-5 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 or 4.5 months. Brunettes can tend to get longer wear closer to 5 months, because the bonds are even more invisible 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?
With any method there is always the potential for damage. A large part of safe extension wear is educating my clieints to take care of them properly at home. The other huge factor is weight distrubution.
Can I color my hair with extensions in?
Yes! Both color retouches, & foil touch up's in between applications! Our hair is 100% human hair, and can be treated as such. We do not recommend bleaching the actual 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 Keratin Bonds varies greatly, due to many factors: 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.
Why Keratin Bonds?
Virutally invisible, light-weight, flexible, comfortable, & safe to wear.
What is the maintenance like?
Great Lengths are actually pretty dang low-maitenance. But there are 3 important parts to taking care of them:
Do I need a consultation for hair extensions?
Yes! For both Keratin Bond & IBE, free consults are required at Kayla Anne Hair Co.
How do I book a consultation?
All hair extension consults are completely free, 30 minute appointments, that can be booked with me in the studio!
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.
What is IBE?
Invisible Bead Extensions using the highest quality, exlusive Covet & Mane hand tied hair.
What is the maintenance like, & is the hair re-usable?
The hair is re-usable, and usually lasts between 6-8 months. This depends heavily on how well the hair is taken care of at home. You should always be using a heat protectant, leave in oil, and brushing daily to make sure your hair stays as healthy as possible. After this amount of time, the hair will need to be replaced.
How much do they cost?
New clients, getting their first install can expect to pay anywhere from $1300 - $2000 for a full lengthening service. This includes the cost of hair, custom root + color blend, cut, style, + an extension care essentials take-home package from Kayla Anne Hair Co.
How should I take care of my IBE extensions?
Daily brushing at the top of the wefts, & through mids + ends is essential to prevent tangling & matting.
What is the consultation process like?
The day of your appointment, you'll arrive at the beautiful, newly built Sola Salons location off of Robert Street in West St. Paul. We have a nice, big parking lot right out front, and my studio is front of the house, right next to the main entrance doors! I'll be sending you a pre-appointment message with check-in details, and some pre-cautionary Covid information, & then I'll greet you at the main entrance, and let you into the building!
Can I color my hair with IBE in?
ABSOLUTELY! Although, I highly recommend avoiding bleach on your high quality hair, to protect it's integrity. It's always best to have your goal color first, and then color match & install to blend with that. But regular root touch ups, or foils on your natural hair while wearing IBE is totally okay!
What is the difference between Keratin Bonds & IBE?
The main difference is the way they are attached.
