Hair extensions are not gender specific

Who doesn’t want thicker, fuller hair? Brand of luxury hair extensions – Great Lengths, has reported a rise in their male clientele as they find men are going to new lengths to seek more affordable (and less invasive) alternatives to a hair transplant.

Great Lengths offers natural and discreet ‘men-hancements‘ – a service that helps to cover hair loss allowing men to regain their confidence. This subtle solution disguises balding or thinning patches at the crown or the hairline in just one sitting, ensuring men leave the salon with a fresh, new look and a boost of confidence.   

Multi award-winning Great Lengths specialist, Jade Searcy has seen a huge growth in the male extension market: “In the past three years, I’ve seen a significant increase in male clients having Great Lengths fitted. Since re-opening from lockdown, I think men seem to be more focused on regaining confidence and not worrying what other people think.”

Great Lengths aim is to enhance individuals’ natural beauty through extensions and offer a variety of shades and application methods to ensure wearers feel comfortable and confident every time. The extensions are available in GL Bonds and GL Tapes, with both being natural, discreet, and virtually undetectable.

Jade says: “My client’s love Great Lengths as they’re so easy to maintain, look so natural and avoid the alternative routes which could be a hair transplant which are invasive and expensive. I now have over five times as many male clients and every month I receive messages requesting consultations. Over the next few years, I think we will see a huge a rise in the male extension market.”
