Extensions | Masterpiece Blackfalds Hair Salon

So, you've made the exciting decision to lengthen or thicken your hair with extensions. Congratulations! Hair extensions can be a fantastic way to achieve the hair of your dreams, whether you're looking for added volume, length, or a bit of both. But with so many different types of hair extensions on the market, how do you know which ones are right for you? Our talented Red Deer hairdressers and Blackfalds hair salon team members are here to shed light on the mystery. 


Weft Extensions 

Weft extensions are known for their natural-looking appearance and comfortable wear. These extensions are created by hand-sewing small sections of hair onto a thin weft, resulting in a lightweight and flexible extension. Wefts are typically applied using a beaded sew-in method. Making them a great choice for all hair types and is usually the most popular option for hair extensions.  

Tape-In Extensions 

Tape-in extensions are perfect for those looking for a quick and easy application process. These extensions consist of pre-taped wefts that are sandwiched between sections of your natural hair. The adhesive used is typically gentle on the hair and scalp, making tape-in extensions a popular choice for those with medium to thick hair. They are also reusable with proper care and maintenance. 

Keratin Bonded Hair Extensions 

Keratin bonded extensions, also known as fusion extensions, are attached to the natural hair using a keratin-based adhesive. The extensions are applied strand by strand and fused to the natural hair using a heat tool. This method offers a secure and long-lasting hold, making it a great option for those looking for semi-permanent extensions. Keratin bonded extensions are available in various colours and textures to match your natural hair seamlessly. 

Clip-In Hair Extensions 

Clip-in extensions are perfect for those who want the flexibility to change their look frequently. These extensions consist of wefts of hair that are attached to small clips. Clip-in extensions can be easily applied and removed at home without the need for professional assistance. They are a great option for special occasions or adding temporary length and volume to your hair.
