Hair Extensions vs Weaves
When a client comes into Iain Stewart Hairdressing, Paisley who wishes to go from short hair to long, or to add more volume of hair, there are a couple of options that we can do for them.
The first option is putting in pre-bonded hair extensions, and the second is a weave. Both are excellent options, so your choice will simply vary according to your budget and preference.
Today we will discuss the difference between the two hair lengthening options – hair extensions vs weaves
Great Lengths Hair Extensions
Here at Iain Stewart Hair we’ve been doing hair extensions for over twenty years now. Over the last eleven years, we have specialised in Great Lengths hair extensions. They are world leaders in providing 100% natural, human hair for extensions – with varying lengths, colours and applications.
Hair extensions come in packs of 25 bonds and get interspersed with your own hair – separately in rows. They will be staggered through which benefits you by inter-mingling with your own hair. This will be especially helpful when it comes to blow drying and styling.
Millionaire Hair Weaves
If cost is an issue, but you still want to lengthen your hair, a Millionaire weave is your best option – at roughly half the price of Great Lengths.
A hair weave, by definition, is a long strip of wefted hair will be attached to the micro-loops that will have been primed into the scalp.
One of the great things about wefts and the extensions is that as long as they have been made from human hair, you can cut, straighten, dye, curl, or anything you’d do to your normal hair.
