HOW MUCH DO LDL HAIR EXTENSIONS COST?
It is imperative that you CALL US on 03 9857 4689 for all pricing. We do NOT sell a mass produced product, therefore there are no stock standard prices.
The cost of your hair extensions is customised for you. Prices are determined based on several different factors such as: How many wefts you require; Colour of the hair; How many grams of hair you require; Length and width of the wefts you require; Type of hair you are wanting and more. Each quote can be tailored specifically to suit your needs and your budget.
HOW ARE LDL HAIR EXTENSIONS INSTALLED?
The method we use at LDL is called a beaded tracking method. We begin the installation process by taking a small section of your hair – roughly 2cm wide by 1cm tall – and thread this through a small hypoallergenic bead. We then place another bead beneath it to secure it in place, creating an anchor point. This process is continued along the scalp until we reach the width required for the weft we are placing in. Then we stitch the weft on either side of the anchor point, securing the weft beautifully so it is very flat on your scalp. This method is extremely safe and easy to put in as well as remove.
WHAT DOES VIRGIN HAIR MEAN?
The true meaning of virgin hair is that during its lifetime, the hair has NEVER been coloured, chemically treated or processed in any way. This is imperative for the lasting quality of the hair. Extensions that have been processed are always compromised and never truly look like your own.
WHAT IS FACTORY HAIR?
Factory produced hair has been chemically altered. This process usually includes acid washing, bleaching, chemically treating and then coating the hair with a layer of silicone to hide the damage caused.
Knowing this, you might be wondering how to identify factory hair. Simply put, factory hair is all ready-made. This means that you can walk into a salon and have the stylist pull the hair straight from a bag, ready to be installed. It is always supplied in its final form – that is, as a weft, tape or clip in extensions. This will never be the case with virgin hair, as it must be custom-made for each specific client.
Factory Hair is NOT what LDL supplies, nor is it what you want when looking for Hair Extensions. Factory hair always comes with an expiry date and tends to noticeably deteriorate after as little as a week to 6 months. With LDL, you will always receive flawless, virgin hair extensions that are customised for you.
WHAT IS REMY HAIR?
The true definition of Remy hair is when all hair cuticles are facing in the correct direction, meaning the client will experience no tangling with their extensions. Unfortunately, factories caught on to the demand for this incredible quality hair years ago and now label most hair “Remy”. What they do not tell you, however, is that their hair has undergone a series of chemical treatments aimed at destroying the natural cuticle. This is a cheap attempt to mask the problem of matting and tangling in low-quality hair, although it generally does not work.
What you are truly looking for when researching Hair Extensions is VIRGIN hair. In order for the hair to be in true “REMY” form this MUST be done by hand very carefully – which is exactly what we do here at LDL. When you come to us, you know you’re getting the finest quality virgin Remy extensions each and every time.
HOW ARE LDL WEFTS MADE?
LDL wefts are all handmade and machine reinforced to ensure the lasting durability of each weft. We don’t use any glues or sticky fibres, ensuring the long-lasting quality of your extensions. For more information on our wefts, please call us on 03 9857 4689.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO HAVE MY LDL EXTENSIONS INSTALLED?
It takes approximately one hour for a full set of LDL extensions to be installed. That’s right – one hour. You don’t need to be sitting in a salon chair all day to look fabulous. After all, you’re already flawless – we’re just enhancing what you already possess! If you’re only wearing one weft it will take around 15 minutes and two wefts takes around 25 minutes.
WHO CAN WEAR LDL’S HAIR EXTENSIONS?
Anyone can wear LDL’s hair extensions, as long as their natural hair is approximately 2 inches long or longer.
I HAVE TRICHOTILLOMANIA, CAN YOU HELP?
Yes, we can. LDL has worked with many clients who have Trichotillomania and have successfully created amazing results.
Please call our salon on 03 9857 4689 for a discreet consultation.
CAN YOU WEAR EXTENSIONS FOR VOLUME AS OPPOSED TO LENGTH?
Absolutely! Upon consultation, we will custom make the look that you desire. Whether you’re looking for length or just some volume, our specialists can create any style of fabulous hair.
AM I TOO OLD TO WEAR HAIR EXTENSIONS?
NO, you are not! LDL has a range of clients from young women in their 20′s right up to beautiful ladies in their 70′s. All of our clients love their stunning hair, no matter their age!
WILL HAIR EXTENSIONS RUIN MY NATURAL HAIR?
Absolutely not. The team at LDL pride ourselves in keeping up with the most advanced installation methods. We do not use glues, tapes, bonds or any other common techniques that damage your natural hair. Our methods are the safest in the country.
WILL MY HAIR STILL GROW IF I AM WEARING HAIR EXTENSIONS?
Absolutely! In fact, people that are wearing LDL’s hair extensions will notice that their hair grows longer and faster than if they were not wearing extensions. The reason for this is the extension acts as a protection layer over the natural hair, stopping it from breaking due to sleeping, brushing, wind, colouring and other factors.
WILL PEOPLE KNOW I AM WEARING EXTENSIONS?
Not if you do not want them to know! LDL uses only the highest quality, uncoloured and unprocessed hair. We pick the exact match for your hair type, so that not even your closest friends will know.
CAN I STILL WASH MY HAIR AS USUAL?
Yes, you can. The benefit of wearing 100 percent VIRGIN hair is that you simply wash your hair like normal and do not require special shampoo’s or any other specialty hair care items. However, LDL can certainly recommend quality products – which we sell in our salon and in our online store – that will keep your natural hair looking and feeling flawless.
HOW LONG WILL MY HAIR LAST?
LDL’s hair does NOT come with an expiry date. It is virgin, premium hair that lasts for years provided you care for it properly.
DOES IT HURT?
No, LDL’s installation method does not hurt. Our extensions are so comfortable you will forget you are wearing them.
CAN I STILL WEAR MY HAIR UP?
Absolutely! Every girl needs to put her hair up from time to time.
CAN YOU SEE LDL EXTENSIONS?
No, you cannot see LDL Hair Extensions. When you book your consultation with us, we will customise your wefts to fit your head, ensuring that they are positioned where nobody can see them.
WILL MY EXTENSIONS FALL OUT?
Absolutely NOT! LDL prides itself on our beautiful workmanship and has selected an installation method so safe and robust that you will never lose an extension.
WHAT MAINTENANCE IS INVOLVED?
Your hair extensions need to be taken out and put back in every 6 weeks. The reason we say 6 weeks is because hair, on average, grows roughly a centimetre per month. In order to preserve the natural growth of your hair it is imperative that you do this. Also, people can shed anywhere between 30 and 170 strands of hair per day. As an extension wearer, that natural hair fall will fall into the installation method. Therefore, it’s important to have the excess shedding removed regularly.
