It’s finally happening! You are deciding to get hair extensions and trying to figure out which method is the best for you. The hair extension industry has grown so much over the last decade and now there are a lot of options to choose from. But before you pick the first option that pops in front of you, there are some questions you should be asking yourself and your hair extension professional.
So often we are asked, “Will my stylist get commission for that?” The answer is no. No they won’t. You’re probably thinking, “How can this be? How do they make money?” If you’ve ever been a client at Zoya salon, you’ve probably noticed a different vibe as soon as you come in. Everybody is laughing, smiling and having a good time. Unlike many salons, you’ll notice team members helping each other out. In fact, it’s not uncommon for you to receive services from one, two or even three people before you leave the salon/spa. Behold our secret to happiness!
In recent years, hair extensions have become more and more popular. Some people use them because they prefer their hair thicker, some use it to add length and some use it as a protective style for their natural hair. Whatever your reason is, there are plenty of options to suit your needs. Weft methods have been widely used for decades. Being one of the most commonly used methods, it has allowed people to improve their techniques, invent new ones and create better, less time-consuming options that are much less damaging. Weft extensions don’t use glue or other chemicals to bond them with any special polymer. Wefts also last for a long time without having to replace the hair. One of the best outcomes of not using chemicals or a long application/removal process is that the hair extensions you use last longer, remain in better shape and can be washed and dried with less of a hassle. Today, we are going to look at the most refined methods for weft hair extensions.
We have all experienced it before, you come back home from the salon and expect everyone to immediately compliment your hair or agree with the fact that the hairstylist could have done a better job or that it is not what you wanted. More often than not, men have no clue what you are talking about. When it comes to women’s hair, men seem to all agree on one thing, as long as it is well maintained, shiny and compliments your overall look, they don’t care. However, there are some things they may not be able to tell you to your face when it comes to your hair. What are those things? Well, let’s get into them.
We have all thought about hair extensions one time or another. Whether if you’re sick of your short hair or just want more volume in your hair, getting extensions can transform any type of hair into glamorous and absolutely fabulous. You can pick from temporary, permanent, protective styles of your choice and every style has a bunch of different options. Let’s look into some of the hair extension options that might be the best for you depending on your personal preference, budget and hair type. At Zoya, we offer multiple types of hair extensions for our clients. You can come in for a free consultation. Even if your hair is thin, weak, short, long, too thick or however else, we can figure out a way to get you to your hair goals.
Being concerned about hair extensions damaging your hair is a reasonable thing. None of us wants to risk having hair loss or breakage! You’ve probably heard some horror stories of breakage or loss of hair from someone who has worn hair extensions. But you might not understand why it happened.
Hair extensions aren’t damaging to the natural hair unless they are:
- Not the right choice of extension for the hair
- Applied improperly
- Neglected in upkeep and maintenance.
Let’s break that down a bit.
So you’ve decided to get hair extensions. We are excited you’ve chosen to try something new, and we would love to be your beauty coach. Extensions are fun, sexy and oh so pretty. But it’s very important to take care of them properly, and we are here to tell you how. Read on for all the do’s and don’ts of hair extensions, no matter which type you’ve chosen.
- The first thing to keep in mind is keeping your hair extensions clean. When shampoo and products build up, they can make the hair look and feel dull as well as dirty and sticky. They can also make it harder to brush through, which leads to pulling and eventually sliding out. The more you have to pull on them to detangle, the more likely they are to come out too soon.
- Before shampooing, brush the hair gently to remove tangles and surface debris.
- After shampooing, apply a very light conditioner from mid-shaft to ends, then comb through with a wide tooth comb. Rinse completely, especially near the scalp, to prevent build-up. Lift the layers of the hair where the extensions have been placed and let the water soak in thoroughly.
- Towel dry gently but thoroughly before applying a leave-in conditioner and/or heat protectant.
- Keep the blow dryer on the move during styling so you don’t overheat any one area, and use hot tools sparingly. The less damage you do to the extensions, the better they will look and last.
- Avoid using oil products near the scalp area where the extensions are applied. This can cause slipping of the extensions and require more maintenance than necessary.
- ANY products which contain sulfate and silicone need to be avoided.
While many women choose hair extensions when they want to add luxurious length and volume to their hair, those with hair loss, especially on the tops of their heads have always had to look for stylish hats or uncomfortable wigs to cover the thinning areas. Some wigs even required women to shave their heads for a proper fit and to look more natural.

From our complete selection of human hair extensions and Rivive wigs, to our latest innovative service, Capillus laser therapy which enables you to stimulate your own natural hair growth giving you a fuller, healthier head of hair.

As I was preparing for this blog I googled it . I was amazed how many articles were written around this question. I still decided to write this and voice my personal opinion on that. I have had over 17 years in the industry and I can say I have not had one moment that I doubted if this is my calling in life. I believe that beautiful transformations happen everyday and the extension of a person’s beauty should be an extension of themselves. It should be real. It should last and stay with them. And it should suit them perfectly , both internally and emotionally.
A lot of us start feeling better about ourselves as we get much older. That is usually when we get to know who we are as a person and know what we want. That is usually when we are independently thinking of ourselves as individuals but this journey usually don’t usually begin till we are in our 30s or 40s and that is usually when we start aging.
I still don’t know who created the idea of if you are older you are not suppose to have long hair. Look at Madonna at 56, Goldie Hawn at 68 , Christie Brinkley 60.
They all have long hair but the key to long hair is healthy hair.
