With Great Lengths, she brings the client back in to check all bonds and makes sure they've bonded properly. She also replaces any lost bonds that the client brings into the appointment. Great Lengths is a natural protein and needs two weeks to harden to its natural state.
With Hair Dreams and Vision, the follow up time is one week. Although the bonding material is also a protein-based polymer like Great Lengths, it's synthetic and hardens right away.
Also, about 6 weeks after the extensions are bonded, she recommends the client come in for a clean-up trim of any loose hair that might have accumulated around the bonds. This will keep a very clean bond and prevent knotting.

There are absolutely no refunds on extension services. You must realize that some people will simply not like having new hair attached to their own hair. Most people love extensions but there are exceptions and you can't always know ahead of time.
If you are extremely sensitive, you may not want to have them. You do need to give extensions a fair chance. It can take a week or two to get used to the feeling of the attachments. We are not responsible for personal preference. The extension hair may not feel exactly like your own hair and that is to be expected.

Please feel free to email Marilyn if you have a question not listed here.
Great lengths requires that you do not shampoo until 2 day after application, because of the natural bonding.
Will people be able to tell that I'm wearing extensions?
The majority of clients want the most subtle, invisible look possible, and we are happy to accommodate. Anyone who has never met you will not be able to tell that the extensions aren't your very own hair.
I have very short hair. Can I get extensions?
If your hair is at least 3-5 inches long, you can get extensions. However, what you won't get a one length look. It will have to be layered throughout into a shag cut. Short hair appointments take longer, but the overall effect is great.
How long will it take to add extensions to my own hair?
The appointments run an average of 2-4 hours. For people with less hair (not necessarily fine hair) the appointments are shorter, for a lot of hair, appointments are longer.
Do I need to buy expensive special shampoos and conditioners?
You can use exactly the same products of your choice on your new hair that you would on your very own irreplaceable head of hair. Be light on conditioners, though, as they do loosen the bond. I would also avoid oil-based conditioners and all silicone products, as they may cause the hair to slip.
Marilyn charges $35/hour for consultations.
A deposit of 1/2 of the total cost is required to order the hair, and if paid at the time of consultation, the consultation fee is waived. The balance of payment is due at the time of application prior to the completion of the service. The consultation deposit fee is refunded from total application fee if the service is booked.
