There are various reasons for extensions. For some, extensions are utilized as a way to protect their hair while they are transitioning through big chop, color damage, breakage, or medically induced alopecia. For others and I want to say in my opinion most fall into this category; extensions are utilized for change, sassy fun, and beauty enhancement.
Whatever your reasons behind getting extensions I would like to share some of the methods out there and also
methods I specialize in. My name is Aisha and I'm a hair artist and I specialize specifically in extensions, I have been
doing hair for over ten years. I originally learned extensions in California, taking classes in Chicago and Indianapolis. I
am versed in the latest methods of extensions. I provide extension education for other stylist so that we collectively
can grow as an industry. I update my skills often so that I am constantly staying abreast of all the latest and greatest
Being a hair artist is a secondary career for me so what that means is I am not money driven, I do hair because I
love it. The benefit of doing hair for love of the art is you are able to be honest and open about methods that will best
suit your client. It isn't just about telling your client what they want to hear it's about listening to the client and coming up with hair ideas that will be beautiful and healthy for the client.
Extension hair can be 100% human, partially human or blended, or there is synthetic hair.
Extension methods fall into three categories, permanent or reusable(extended period of time), semi permanent
(constant wear for 1-3 months), and temporary extensions (example: tape in, or clip in method)
Are Extensions damaging?

extensions can be damaging. It's important to have extensions whether done by someone else or DIY to be done the
Sew in- hair is attached via braid and weft or hair extension is sewn onto braid. This is one of the oldest methods and is the safest if done properly,
Signs of it being done improperly are: excessive pain, pulling, or redness.
Common signs are tenderness for first couple days, slight tension or minor discomfort during install.
This method works best on people with fine to thick hair depending on the braid pattern and track placement. I have been doing hair for years so I normally assess the hair utilize a braiding pattern that will work well for my client hairs and objectives for style. Sew in method is considered semi permanent.
Hair or extensions that I recommend for this style are Brazilian, Peruvian, Indian, Russian hair. Great sites to purchase if you're in Seattle Queens beauty supply, Tacoma Hair Art on 84th St, Olympia Kings Beauty. G
