Your Frequently Asked Questions Answered

Here at LDL, we’ve been in the hair extension business for a long time – for over two decades, to be exact. And over the years, we’ve noticed that a lot of people have the same questions about wearing hair extensions.

Today we thought we’d answer a few of our most frequently asked questions so you can find out everything you want to know all in one place…

I don’t live in Melbourne – can I still get LDL extensions?

Absolutely! We have many amazing clients who live interstate and wear LDL extensions. At the moment, we’re working on having LDL extensionists in every state, but until then we can definitely sort something out for you.

If you can’t make it down to Melbourne for your initial consultation, we can either speak to you via Skype, on the phone or by email to get an idea of what you want. Once your extensions are installed, we can help you find a reputable hairdresser in your local area who is able to perform your reinstallations every 6 weeks. This ensures your extensions are always looking flawless!

How much does your hair cost?

We don’t use a generic price list here at LDL, and this is simply because each one of our wefts is custom-designed and handmade for our clients. The price of your extensions will depend on a variety of factors, such as how long you want your hair, how many wefts you’ll need and the colour you’re looking for.

This is why we provide complementary consultations to anyone who is thinking about buying hair extensions. In this consultation, we will get an idea of what you want, take your measurements and help you choose out a pony tail to be made into your own custom wefts. This is the point at which we’ll be able to give you a quote for the total amount. Of course, this consultation is completely obligation-free, meaning you can go home and think about it for as long as you want without making any commitment!

I have really short hair – am I a candidate for LDL extensions?

We have many clients with a small amount of natural hair who happily wear LDL extensions. Typically, we need at least 2-inches of hair to install your wefts and ensure they look completely natural.

However, if you’re living with hair-loss or thinning of any kind and don’t have 2-inches of hair to work with, we still have options for you. Through the use of hair-fibres and wigs we can help you get the look you’ve always dreamed of in a way that looks completely natural and effortless.

Are there any hairstyles I need to avoid while wearing LDL extensions?

Our extensions are designed to look and feel like your natural hair at all times, so you can do anything with them that you would do with your real locks. It’s that simple!

Do I have to spend a fortune on products to maintain my hair?


Absolutely not! The best part about wearing authentic Virgin extensions is that they don’t take a lot of effort to maintain. We hand-make all our extensions from the highest quality hair, so they will stay silky smooth with simply a good shampoo and conditioner, which you can buy in our salon.

The most important part of the maintenance process is visiting our salon every 6-weeks to get your wefts lifted. This simply ensures they always look perfect.
