Champions of creating ethical and superior quality hair, Great Lengths aim is to make hair extensions a synonym of self-care and wellbeing, while enhancing individuals’ natural beauty and confidence.
Perfect for adding volume, length, and colour effects, Great Lengths premium extensions is the Pre-Bonded range which enable stylists to naturally enhance their clients’ hair while giving a truly natural and seamless finish. Long-lasting and durable, the extensions give up to 5 months of wear and are available in a variety of lengths and bond styles to create full head, half head or filler services, making them the ideal extensions for those with fine hair who want to thicken out the sides of hair or recreate colour effects.
Stylists can choose from a variation of techniques when applying Pre-Bonded extensions, including the Classic Fusion and the Ultrasonic method. The Classic Fusion technique is a practice that has paved the way in the world of extensions, involving a thermal system which reaches the same temperature of an average curling iron allowing the bonds to be fused into the hair in seconds.
The Ultrasonic Touch technique allows up to 10,0000 applications using vibrations to fuse the bonds to the hair. With its touch-screen technology and activation time of 1.2 seconds, it’s a stylist’s favourite which allows them to create strong and seamless extensions.
We’ve put together a step-by-step guide to applying Great Lengths Pre-Bonded extensions, to ensure stylists can give their clients invisible, long-lasting luxury hair.
Prep the hair with Great Lengths Clean Remover Shampoo, this will remove excess oils and any residue. Dry smooth on a medium heat.
Use Great Lengths Pre-Bonded extensions in shades 72 and 73. Section the client’s hair using section clips, ready for application. Take a ¼ inch by ¼ inch square section. Place the Protective Shield into the hair, lining up the top line with the horizontal section – this is your guide.
Place the bond below the hair and fuse using the Great Lengths Classic Fusion application machine, roll between fingers. Continue this to complete a full row. Continue this method working row by row up the head, alternating colours to create a seamless blended effect.
Cut and blend the hair extensions with the client’s natural hair, then barrel curl the hair and brush out to create soft, effortless waves. Finish the hair with the Great Lengths Soft Finish Spray.
