Let's be real, the world of hair extensions is a foreign one for most of us. With dozens and dozens of methods, brands, lengths and colors, it's tough to know where to begin. Luckily for us, we sat down with the team at Gilded Hair Salon, New Braunfels' premiere provider in hand-tied hair extensions, where they walked us through the ins-and-outs of this complex world.
The team hammered down on the fact that extensions are not for everyone. They require an in person consultation for any new extension client for this reason. Unfortunately, a lot of stylists out there will put extensions in anyone's hair when they shouldn't, leaving clients feeling frustrated and they ultimately have them removed after having dropped a lot of money unnecessarily. This is why it's imperative to do your research and to make sure that you go to an ethical salon that specializes in extensions and are certified. If during the consultation, it is deemed that the client is a candidate, they take a deep dive into their wish list and goals. Extensions require a great deal of customization, so the consultation is crucial here. Your client wants longer or thicker hair, or both, but they don't want to look fake. Achieving this natural look takes a keen eye and it is an art when it comes to matching and mixing various colors of extensions and knowing how many grams of each color to order. Beyond the color, the stylist has to choose the method that is best for their particular client. It also comes down to the thread type used that works best with your specific hair type and oil production, the bead size, the install method for your hair density and head shape, etc.
Gilded takes their extension game a step further and will even utilize extensions to make a client blonder without needing to bleach the client's real hair to the extent they normally would need to if they were only rocking their natural hair. Over time, this allows the client to grow out their natural hair quicker because they aren't applying as much damage with bleaching.
Gilded Hair Salon carries multiple methods and colors from multiple brands like Addendum, Covet & Mane, JZ Styles, Babe, & Bellami which leads to thousands of different color combinations so that your hair extensions are as unique as your own hair.
Gilded Hair Salon is located Downtown New Braunfels and is known for being one of the Best Hair Salons in New Braunfels.
