The Great Journey to Great Lengths

Who are Great Lengths?

The Great Lengths brand is a family run business with over 25 years of heritage! The brand’s ethos is provide ethical and superior quality extensions which will in turn, enhance a person’s natural beauty and confidence.

The Hair Journey – what is the process?

Ethical Sourcing

All Great Lengths hair is sourced from Indian temples where the hair is voluntarily donated as part of a ritual process called tonsuring.

Cleansing & Purifying

Ensuring the cuticle seals in moisture and protects the hair from environmental damage, guaranteeing that the hair is matt and tangle free.


A dedicated team of master colourists who do every process by hand. From checking the osmosis baths, colouring, hand blending from 8 base shades to create the full colour range, to the brushing of the hair, whilst ensuring the cuticle remains in the same direction throughout.

Colour Removal

Great Lengths’ de-pigmentation process sees colour molecules gently removed by osmosis. Traditional chemical acid bath processes break down the colour molecule.

Colour Addition

Great Lengths’ de-pigmentation process then sees colour molecules gently replace those removed.  Traditional colour methods redeposit colour over the top of the damaged colour molecules.


The hair is then hand blended to create over 90 shades including 28 blondes, rooted, flowstrand and fashion colour effects.
