Disclaimer: Extensions, Clip-in Hair and Track Hair Policy
All hair is final sale once taken home or removed from the Xtend Yourself Studio or once the Xtended to you in home/office/hotel service is deemed complete. We recommend in-person consultations for those in state. On-line consultations are for out of state or out of the country clients. Please be advised that prices quoted upon consultation are subject to change during actual service time as some clients may need more hair when the application is complete. This holds true with color correction services as well: as time, amount of product, and number of services needed to achieve desired results can vary. Xtend Yourself will let you know ahead of time if more may be needed but does not take financial responsibility for clients that may need more hair. Everyone has their own individual thickness of hair and size of the head therefore we order what we believe is needed.
Strand by Strand
With this extension technique small strands of extension hair are attached one by one to small sections of your own hair by either weaving in, gluing, heat fusing, clamping with metal tubes, sewing, hand knotting, or using waxes and polymers. We use either pre-tipped strands or can custom blend/make them in the salon.
- Fusion: Fusion Hair Extensions is the process of fusing hair extension with your own natural hair. The process uses individual strands of hair extensions. These hair extensions are then added close to the scalp, throughout your hair. This natural blend of fusion hair extensions helps your hair obtain, a natural, beautiful look.. This method will last 2 to 5 months. Although we only recommend and guarantee up to 3 months of wearing. The best feature about using this method is the bonds can be custom sized for all hair types and can even be made micro small for use around the bang and hairline area as well as the top of the head.
- Micro-Links and Shrink Links: The Micro Link hair extensions and Shrink Links are easy to wear and easy to remove. Shrink Links are a bit more durable and tend to slip less, but must be completely removed and re-installed. Micro Links may tend to slip a bit more, but they can be adjusted as needed up to two or three times without having to remove the hair completely. Both are used with I-tip hair. Both of these methods will last up to 3 months. The best feature about using either method is that the hair can be re-used up to a year or more if well cared for. For this reason we recommend purchasing top quality hair.
- Microchet: One of the most innovative and natural inventions in the field of hair extensions, Microchet is a very gentle thread technique that is virtually undetectable. Microchet is the original leader in this area. It is so comfortable and light you will hardly know you are wearing them. The attachment is so small that it can be applied on very thin hair and on areas of the head (temples, mid scalp, fore head) where most other systems cannot. Microchet also moves differently than other Strand by Strand methods due to the nature of the attachment. It moves so realistically no one will know you are wearing them. (they can not be re-used). Microchet is fantastic for people who are sensitive to the metal beads or keratin or resin/glue bonds near their scalp. Niki is a certified Microchet Extension Educator. READ MORE ABOUT MICROCHET
Clip-In Method: Clip-in hair extensions should removed from hair daily and not worn to bed. Clip-ins can be worn for specific occasions or for someone who wants to wear their clip-ins daily we can create a clip base for you that should be redone every 4 weeks. This is a great option for someone trying out extensions for the first time, but don’t yet want the obligation of a more permanent method. This is also a great choice for those times in-between removal and re-installation of your more permanent extension methods, to let your scalp rest. If you care for your clip-ins properly the hair should be wearable for up to two years (depending on how often you wear them and what quality they are). This method will allow less damage to natural hair while you wear clip-ins.
Sew-In Method: A sew-in weave is adding hair extensions by creating a foundation with nice firm braids that lay very flat. Then sewing a hair weft to the braid to achieve desired style. This method last can 3 to 4 months with proper maintenance. We do not recommend keeping it in any longer than that, however, depending on the quality of the hair being installed, and meticulous care of the installed hair, the hair may be re-installed for up to a year.
Sewless Method: With this method there is no sewing. The weft is held in place with beads or Shrink Links. This technique creates a very flat installation, is faster to install and can simply be adjusted up every four weeks (up to three times).
Seamless Method: The newest and most undetectable method of extensions. Have a full, beautiful mane without lumps and bumps. Lightweight, flat, and natural looking, this technique won’t damage your hair and will last for 4-8 weeks. You can shampoo your hair while wearing the seamless (tape) hair extensions and the hair is reusable. These extensions are very comfortable to wear.
Xtend Braids: There are many different braided methods. Some use human hair, some use synthetic hair. Some are heat sealed, some glued and some are thread tied. We have created a blend of the “box braid” and the “micro braid”. Using special thread, we hand tie each extension close to the head so you don’t see where the extensions are. We have been told that this method is easy to wear, comfortable and very natural. Some people don’t want any glue, Keratin, beads or metal clips near their scalp. This allows them to have lovely, long extensions but keep all inorganic materials away from their scalp.
Dreadlock Hair Extensions: Custom dreadlock hair extensions made from either natural wool or fiber hair. These are an Xtend Yourself exclusive! We created these Dreadlock Hair Extensions for use by anyone not wanting to dread their own hair. Xtend Yourself exclusive installation method will not damage your own hair. These will need to be removed at Xtend Yourself. We custom make each one for the client. They can take up to 30min each to make. READ MORE ABOUT DREADLOCK EXTENSIONS

Hair Coloring Services – Choosing the Right Hair Color
Hair Highlights and/or Lowlights: Highlights add lighter color to dark hair whereas lowlights add darker color to light hair. Used separately or together, they give an outdoorsy sun-kissed look to your features. For artificially colored hair, highlights and/or lowlights provide the textured look of naturalness. And for natural hair, they provide added texture, shine and definition. Either can be created using hair color or extensions – your choice. Hi/low lights and Ombre color can be created with extensions as well as color. READ MORE ABOUT HIGHLIGHTS AND LOWLIGHTS

We specialize in color corrections and customizing dimensional color just for you. We specialize in hair painting techniques for creating natural, believable, streak-free highlights using ecologically friendly, biodegradable tissue instead of foils. There is no harsh line during grow out and it’s so light and comfortable while processing.
Blanket Color: For an all over color, grey reduction color, touch-up, going all over lighter or darker or just getting a wash of color over your natural hair color.
Coloring Your Extensions: Yes, most natural hair extensions can be colored, within reason. The higher quality the raw, virgin hair, the more options you have for customizing the color. The more the extension hair was processed in the factory the smaller your options. Going darker or brighter is usually fairly straight forward. Going slightly lighter or adding a few highlights can usually be done on high quality hair. Going very light is not recommended.
