How to Get Super Long Locks – Fast!
At one point or another, most girls have dreamt of having super long hair. For most of us, however, waist-length natural locks just aren’t on the cards. The good news? This doesn’t have to stop you from achieving those hair goals.
Here at LDL, we’ve transformed many of our clients from short or medium-length hair to long, flowing locks using our custom, Virgin extensions. You might have even seen our hair on Martha Kalifatidis as she walked the Logies Red Carpet last month wearing her dramatic 38inch wefts.
Here’s how we have given some of our clients the beautiful long hair of their dreams…
SOURCING THE RIGHT PONY TAIL
Here at LDL, we consider ‘super long’ hair to be upwards of 25inches long. As we only use natural, Virgin pony tails to create our wefts, – i.e. hair that comes from a single donor and has not been chemically altered in any way – sourcing hair of this calibre is no easy feat. As we already mentioned, growing your hair past your waist is a difficult task for most people. Therefore, these types of pony tails don’t come around all the time.
On top of the length, we at LDL factor in many other details to find the perfect pony tail for your needs, including hair texture and hair colour. Whether your hair is curly, wavy or dead straight, we find an option for you. This is exactly what we did for Martha, who needed wavy black locks to suit her natural hair perfectly. After all, what good are gorgeous long hair extensions if they don’t blend beautifully while you’re wearing them?
This is why we always create your LDL extensions from a pony tail that perfectly matches your real hair – regardless of what length you’re looking to get. Put simply, we are all about creating hair extensions that look, feel and act exactly like real hair, so we take many factors into consideration in order to get it right.
CREATING THE WEFTS
It goes without saying that you want your hair extensions to look as natural as possible. Here at LDL, we take pride in the fact that our wefts are completely seamless – to the point where friends and family of our clients don’t even know they’re wearing them!
We attribute this in large part to the way we customise each and every set of wefts to the individual client. Measuring various areas on your scalp, we design and hand-create your extensions in our salon to ensure they offer the perfect fit for your needs. Trust us, your extensions will look so natural that people will be asking you for your secrets on growing super long, luscious hair.
INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE
Believe it or not, our installation method doesn’t vary between our short-haired clients and our ladies with super-long locks. At LDL, we exclusively use a beaded installation method to install our wefts, as we know it works like a charm. This method is so gentle that it minimises hair breakage, keeps your extensions looking natural and ensures you feel completely comfortable while wearing them.
Maintenance wise, long LDL locks are just as easy to wear and maintain as the rest of our extensions. On those days when you want your hair out of your face, you can put it in a low pony tail or braid without worrying that it will affect your wefts. You can also swim, work out, go to the beach, get blow waves, style your hair and do pretty much anything else you want while wearing your LDL extensions.
With your extensions, you will need to visit our salon every 6 weeks for a reinstallation and invest in a good shampoo and conditioner (available in salon). Another important step is to use a nourishing hair masque semi-regularly, as this will give your long hair exactly what it needs to stay shiny and beautiful.
