Kelly Ripa and Kim Kardashian have a lot more in common then you think?

Ever wonder how your favorite celebrities change their hair from short to long without that awkward growing out phase? Do you wonder how they have such full and luscious tresses?

We have the answer for you: Hair Extensions

Great Lengths

Great Lengths

Extensions have come a long way over the years. So many options for color, texture and length! We could name the good ones and we could name the bad ones but we all know by now, right?

It’s a well known fact that celebrities wear them.9 out of 10 people in the public eye use them whether temporary or permanent. Everybody knows about what they are used for, so why do we still fear the talking about it.Why is that? Let’s talk about it!

 

Great Lengths uses a keratin bonding system to apply individual strands of hair

Great Lengths is one of our methods of choice. We chose this brand for the quality of the hair, the application of the technique, and most importantly the ease of at home maintenance for our clients.

Another method that we recently have started to offer is the “Sew In” method. Great for a little bit of a body, added length or a complete transformation. An ideal option for those who frequently are changing up their style!

Whether it’s for length or fullness, extensions are a great option to give your hair the versatility that it needs. Hair extensions are a way to experiment with lots of different styles without being restricted by the limitations of your own hair. Hair is matched perfectly from color to texture that way the application process is seamless and blends(So that nobody standing next to you is able to tell.)

Color,Texture & Length!

Treat the hair as you would your own.When you are at the salon you will receive a take home kit with instructions on how to take care of “your” new hair.

Extensions while they may seem like an instant fix, we have to remind you that creating your new look does require a little bit of time. We want to ensure that you come out looking and feeling like the best version of yourself because we believe in the quality of our work to ensure that you are happy.

Just For The Men

The Game of Style

The Game of Style

“Style is a simple way of saying complicated things”

Jean Cocteau

Warmer weather is headed our way and wearing  heavy coats is out of the picture. Guys may find that putting effort into what they are going to wear can be a bit of a daunting task. However, staying fit and learning to cook well can be just as daunting. Understanding how to maximize what you have in your closet, as well what to look for when shopping this season will help any man create a sense of his own style.

If you’ve cleaned out your closet, just to end up filling it back up with things that you won’t wear again, was there any sense in cleaning it out in the first place? Here are 3 tips that are a good starting point for any man:

  • Layering Clothing-One of the easiest things to do, layering between a light shirt and sweater or a light jacket is great for going into Spring or Fall seasons.  Lighter, thinner fabrics should be closer to the body. Sport coats offer the ability for men to dress them up or dress them down.
  • Versatility-Utilizing what is already in your closet with new pieces is what we mean. Bright cardigans, along with darker washes in denim can allow for further dressing up or dressing down with what’s already in your closet. Darker washes also can be slimming while trying to get back into shape.
  • Fit-Typically, guys do not bring their clothing to a tailor. However, it’s an important step. Unless you want to look frumpy, knowing the exact measurements of your body is crucial in looking presentable. It shows that you know yourself inside out.
