Fusion are applied in 1/4" sections to the natural hair with keratin (not glue) bonds. They are great for fine to medium hair. Not recommended for thick hair. This is a slower application, but there is more time between visits. Hair cannot be reused for follow up visits. (Fusion Guest pictured below)
Sew-In methods apply miniature beads to the hair, and then we sew a weft to those beads. This is a faster method and good for most hair types (not recommended for ultra fine hair). It requires quick follow up visits (typically at the 5 week mark). Hair can be reused for future visits until the hair needs replaced- typically around 6 months to a year after the first application. (Picture below shows the sew-in microbeads)
Can I change my color after I add extensions?
We recommend committing to a color plan before ordering the extensions, as there is not a predictable outcome when coloring extensions . Although they are 100% human hair, they are dyed differently to ensure the color doesn't fade, making it more difficult to alter the extension color. We suggest planning color changes when you're ready to change out the hair.
Which consult should I book?
If you've had extensions before and you know which method you like, we recommend booking an in-salon consult. The consult can be done with any of our Extension Specialists, and they will match you with the Stylist that is best for your budget and goals. If you've never had extensions, or you aren't clear on which method is best for you- please start with an online consult.
We do not recommend hair extensions if you've had cancer treatments or have been under anesthesia in the last 6 months. If you're losing at an abnormal rate or in 'patches'. If you're losing hair due to natural aging and shedding, we may be able to recommend extensions. If you'd like a complete list of medications to avoid if you're hoping for extensions, click here.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, we do! Payment plans are only an option if approved by the Stylist performing the service. 50% non-refundable deposit is due up front, and the subsequent payments can be paid in 30 day increments. Please note, two cards on file will be required for this option.
What is the deposit and cancellation policy for extensions?
First time Guests will be asked to give a non-refundable 50% deposit to allow us to set the appointment in motion. View our extension cancellation policy here. Return Guests will not be required to give a deposit, however- a 50% non refundable deposit will be charged if cancelled within the 2 week mark.

Yes, we offer bridal services within a 15 mile radius for an additional charge. We can send one Stylist, or a whole team (depending on your budget and timing goals). Our wedding coordinator will discuss options with you based on your needs. We can also accommodate large groups in-salon!
Why don't you accept gratuity?
Everything we do is with your time in mind. Our team is just paid differently than traditional Stylists, so tipping isn't a factor for their income. We believe a flat-rate pricing system allows you to focus on your big day, without worrying about who or what to tip. Don't worry, our team loves this system!
What does each Special Event Hair Session include?
Our special event sessions (Classic & Deluxe) are time-based. Once we find out about your hair and goal, we can match you with the correct session and do the math on what that session would include. For some situations, we may be able to do a wash/Blowdry, and others we may ask you to come clean and dry.
What does each Makeup Session include?
Our makeup sessions (Classic and Deluxe) are time-based. Depending on your goal, we will match you up with the correct Artist and session. Both sessions include a full-face, and lashes are an add-on. We have Battington silk lashes, or you're welcome to bring your own and just pay for the application.
What do I need to do to reserve my date?
First, we need you to submit a request (see below). After that point, our Wedding Coordinator or Salon Coordinator will reach out to chat with you about your date and needs. At that point we can give a rough estimate on pricing (pricing changes in small increments each year). Then, we would need a card on file per our cancellation policy. There will be a $5 charge the week of the wedding (just to ensure the card is valid).
Yes! If you'd like them to be on separate bills, we are happy to reach out to them directly. Please note: if they do not respond, we will cancel their appointment due to our reservation policy (we will send you a courtesy message first).

To allow us to serve you in the most efficient manner, please let us know if you'd like to add any of the items below. If we do not hear from you, we will assume you are waiving these requests. Thank you!
Quote: We are happy to provide a rough estimate, OR if you'd like give us a max budget and we will let you know what's possible within that. If you do not request a quote, we will work solely based on needs & ideal outcomes. Please note: any changes made in the plan could result in a charge difference, discussed by you and the Stylist performing the service.
Post-Service Checkout: Due to our 'Sans' Checkout experience, Stylists ring out the bill at the end of the day, at the same time they take care of your notes (instead of at the end of your service). If you would like to see the bill before leaving, please let us know at the time of reservation so we can make a note in your file and prepare ahead of time. All Guests will receive an itemized receipt as long as their email is on file.
Stylist Request: We will match you with a Stylist based on your date/time preferences and skill level required unless you request or mention a particular Stylist.
Patch Test: If you reserve a chemical service without requesting the patch test at least 24 hrs before, we will assume you are waiving the patch test. If you have any skin conditions or concerns, please consult your Dr. before reserving.
