Garnish-Hair-Extension-Studio--Oribe-Best-Hair-Extension-Products

Having the right products are key to maintaining y and extending the wear time of your hair extensions. While there are TONS of great products available for you to use, we have narrowed it down to three MUST have products to always have on hand for detangling, styling and polishing. These products are always available here in the studio or to order though our Oribe website.

The Best Hair Extension Products

detangle

Detangling your hair and extensions is the first line of defense to taking care and maintaining your rows. Oribe Run Through is the perfect detangling product. Its a leave-in conditioner that makes combing through your hair virtually effortless. Make sure when you use this or any detangling product that you are sectioning off hair and combing through every single day, and a couple of times a day if you have a tangle prone texture like curls. Unaddressed tangles can not only shorten the life of your extension wefts, but can ultimately damage your own hair as well.

styling & restyling

Proper protection from heat and external elements is key to maintaining the health of both your natural hair and extensions. We love Oribe Mystify because it is a spray on product that can be used on either wet or dry hair. You can use this as a prep on day one, freshly washed hair to blowdry and style or to restyle or freshen up your curls on the days between washes. This product dries super fast on dry hair and provides heat protection for both blow drying and heat styling with a curling or flat iron.

The Best Hair Extension Products

polish

Our scalps produce oils that help moisturize our natural hair, but unfortunately those essential oils don’t always make it to the ends of your hair, and rarely make it to your extensions at all. But because your extensions are human hair, they definitely need that same TLC to keep from becoming dry, brittle, and damaged. This is where Oribe Gold Lust, the ABSOLUTE must have product, comes in. This product adds amazing shine to your extension and natural hair ends where most damage lives. Gold lust adds the polish to your hair and is the perfect finishing product. But go easy with this. A little goes a long way!

Working Out With Extensions

One of the questions we get most often from our active guests is,

“Can I work out with extensions?”
And the answer is always, “YES! YES! YES!”

One of the things that we love most about the extension method that we offer in the studio, which is NBR (Natural Beaded Rows), is how versatile it is. We wholeheartedly believe that beauty should be an extension of your lifestyle, not a deterrent from it. In fact all of the stylists in the studio maintain very active lifestyles while confidently wearing extensions. Yes, even swimming is ok!

Working out with Extensions

Today we are sharing a quick video that creator of Natural Beaded Rows, Danielle White, created all about working out and caring for your NBR while keeping up with your workout routine.

One trick that Danielle talks about is the bang wash. If you want to skip the whole head post workout shampooing, but don’t want to leave the house with sweaty bangs, just wash your bangs. It’s easy: pull the rest of your hair back in a ponytail, wet your hands with a small dime-size amount of shampoo then conditioner, run it through your fringe, and rinse it out under the faucet. This hack is also one of the fastest ways to save a bad hair day in a pinch.

Hair Extensions

Like most small businesses, when we were required to shut down for 8 weeks earlier this year, we were scared. We didn’t know what to expect when we reopened our doors in the midst of an ongoing global pandemic. We know how much our craft means to us and to the women we’ve worked with in the past, but as the world continues to change by the day, we just didn’t know what would happen. Here’s what we’ve found.

As extension specialists we’ve known for a long time that hair extensions are about SO much more than hair. It goes deeper than just the aesthetics. Hair extensions give women confidence and security that they’ve never had due to their natural hair being thin, damaged, or affected by hormones or illness. There’s even something that’s transformational about the instant gratification of suddenly seeing yourself in a whole new light. Our guests have told us countless stories of how their life has changed following their hair extensions appointment. Which is why it makes perfect sense that women are still seeking out hair extensions during this time.

Hair Extensions

Hair Extensions

When it feels like everything is changing day to day and there’s so much unknown, a lot of us are experiencing that feeling of “just go for it.” Life is short and you should feel your absolute best each and every day. And that’s the thing; most women are seeking out hair extensions for the feeling not just the look. For the confidence it gives them, for the feeling of doing something that’s just for them (something most of us women don’t often do), and for feeling really good about themselves when they look in the mirror.

Hair Extensions

So, NO, you’re not crazy for still wanting hair extensions during a global pandemic! It actually makes complete sense. You’ve been home for months, not really able to do much for yourself, working and taking care of kiddos and partners… and you just want something that makes you feel really good. Or maybe you’re feeling the inspiration to go after what you want because life isn’t guaranteed. Whatever it is you’re feeling, we totally get it. And so do all the women who have come in for hair extensions since we reopened at the end of May.

If you’ve been thinking about it… if you’ve been aching for that feel good thing that’s just for you… if you’ve been waiting for a sign that now is the time, this is it. Fill out an application, and let’s get started on transforming how you FEEL and everything that comes along with that. Life’s too short to not be in love with the woman you see in the mirror.

NBR Hair Extensions

If you follow the hair industry at all you may have noticed that hair extensions are having a moment. As a salon that specializes exclusively in extensions, we’re obviously pretty passionate about their place in the industry. So on the one hand it’s exciting that our niche is experiencing the spotlight. On the other hand, as a salon who specializes in extensions, we know just how much time, energy, and experience is involved in offering a high-quality extension service. Which is the part about extensions gaining popularity that makes us feel a little cautious. Not all extension brands and trainings were created equally.

For us, hair extensions are about changing women’s lives. Candice has been specializing in extensions for almost two decades. She has poured countless hours and money into certifications, advanced education, and most importantly, hands on practice. The entire culture of Garnish is built around offering the highest quality of service. And no matter what, for every guest, our focus is on how we can offer a solution through hair extensions that will change the way our guest feels about herself.

The popularity of hair extensions has come about for several reasons—some good, some less so. There are those stylists, like all of us at Garnish, who truly connect to the service and how it changes women’s lives. Then there are those who just see it as a way to bring in additional income due to the higher cost of extensions. There are also those who just want to be a part of the trend and post “pretty” before and afters on social media. We’re big believers that there’s room for everyone who wants to be able to offer the service of extensions; however, offering hair extensions with integrity is super important to us.

You can technically get certified in some methods of hair extensions in just a day, but just because you have a certificate from a company doesn’t mean you should just start offering the service right away. No matter what the method or brand, they all take time and practice to truly master. Putting in the time and energy to practice is absolutely vital with hair extensions because if not done properly, they can really do damage to someone’s hair. Even when you are still learning, you never want to compromise the integrity of the hair you’re working on. This is why it’s our practice to only begin performing an extension method on clients (even as models) after extensive practice on mannequins.

Through our NBR training we learned a method called “power practice” that all of our team members employ. Power practice consists of 15 minutes of intensive practice every single day. Our employees do this for several months before ever working on an actual client. We’re not looking for perfection, but confidence that you will not damage someone’s hair while performing the service. This is why it’s important to find an educational experience that not only certifies you but offers you a consistent platform of advanced, ongoing education—so you can get over any hiccups in learning and continue pouring into your craft.

Whether you were initially attracted to learning hair extensions because they are currently popular or because you were already passionate about them, we encourage you to be passionate about learning your craft so much so that you’re willing to put in the work to uphold the service.

We believe if we all have that mindset, everyone can win.

Hair-Extension-NBR-Extension-Gift-from-Garnish

We love to kick the year off with something special for both new friends and current friends.

This year we are launching the new year with “A Gift from Garnish: #ConfidenceOnTheGo.” If you saw our most recent YouTube video, we featured our Lead Stylist, Niko Jones, along with Jennifer Freeman, who started out as a guest, and has now become a part of our studio as our extra set of hands, so-to-speak. We wanted to give you some insight into these two women’s lives because of the impact wearing hair extensions has had on them and their day to day.

While yes, hair extensions give you length or volume, and transforms your hair—they also do so much more. Wearing extensions does something to the inside as well, bringing more confidence, and just making everything feel a little different. We wanted to shine some light on that aspect of hair extensions. In the video, both Niko and Jennifer share their stories.

We particularly wanted to feature Jennifer because as she transitioned from a guest into one of our team members we’ve gotten to know her on a deeper level and really see what hair extensions have done for her. As a single mom of four boys who manages a coffeeshop, Jennifer has pretty much always put herself last.

Choosing to come in and carve out time just for her was huge! Candice said, “She walks in the door with all this confidence and cute styles, and it’s clear she really just got lit up by adding hair extensions to her fine hair.”

A Free Extension Consultation, Our Gift to You!

We decided to offer free consultation vouchers to our current guests to inspire you to invite your friends to come in and experience Garnish. If you’re a current guest, we have tickets up at our front desk that can be personalized just for you. The voucher is good for a complimentary consultation that you can give out to someone you think would really benefit from wearing hair extensions.

The person in your life who really needs that extra dose of confidence on the go. We want to make it easy for you to give that gift to them. In exchange for bringing your friends into the Garnish family, we are offering $100 off your next full set of hair extensions for each friend who ends up actually getting hair extensions following their complimentary consultation.

This promotion will be going on through the end of February to really kick off 2020 right!

As always, we truly appreciate the support and love that we get from all of our guests. We couldn’t follow our dreams without you! Thank you all for everything that made up our 2019 and we can’t wait for more amazing hair and #ConfidenceOnTheGo in 2020!

Short Hair Extensions - Garnish Hair Extensions

When you think of hair extensions, you probably picture long, thick hair. Maybe even celebrity style mermaid hair. You may even think hair extensions aren’t for you because your hair is too short or too fine or long hair isn’t something you’re remotely interested in having. We wanted to shine some light on a few of our recent SHORT HAIR extension transformations to show you just how versatile they can be.

The reality is—you can do almost anything with hair extensions at almost any length—with the right artist and realistic expectations. Here at Garnish we have been able to turn a carefully selected pixie into a bob, fill in and give volume to a bob with very fragile sides, and create a really beautiful short modern shag style. If you’ve ever doubted that extensions can be added to your short hair, chances are they can be! Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean a long length can be achieved—it’s still all about the blend—but volume and some length can completely change your look even and especially with shorter hair.

Through our personal experience at Garnish, we’ve found that adding volume through hair extensions can almost be like an instant fountain of youth. If you have a hair style or haircut that you really like, making it a little fuller and adding more volume in specific places can make all the difference and really transform the end result. It may even be something that you don’t realize how much of a difference it will make until you experience it. (Make sure to check out our transformation photos to see what we mean!)
We wanted to share a couple of personal short hair stories with you in case you’re a short-haired babe wondering if hair extensions are possible for you.

Our first guest came into the studio just looking for something different. Her hair was super dark and fine and she pretty much ignored it other than to just keeping slapping on the same dark color. This badass business babe owns a major construction and roofing company and had fallen into the same habit so many entrepreneurs and business owners do—ignoring her own needs as she hustled for her business. She told us that one day she looked up and realized she didn’t love what she sees in the mirror.

First up was a Color Revamp to lighten everything up. Candice formulated her new look to be a beautiful almost bronde that would complement her skin tone. Next up was the extension transformation. Candice added a Crown extension on the top for volume, and 2 shorter rows of NBR Extensions underneath. The two aspects (color and extensions) came together to create a more youthful, soft, and vibrant look. You could see the change just pouring out of her as she saw her new look.

The second client spotlight is someone who came to Garnish not really knowing what she needed, just knowing she wanted to look amazing for her wedding. She was in the process of trying to return her hair to it’s natural color from being lightened, and it was overall “fine,” but she just knew something needed to change. She didn’t have enough for an updo, but still wanted it to look sexy and amazing for her wedding day.

Hair Extensions

After evaluating her hair, Candice knew that despite the fact that it was pretty short and some of the layers were a little choppy, she could create something really beautiful. They started by updating her color to look subtle and natural. Then they added three rows that had been customized for her specific curl/body wave. Just looking at her before photo, you may have thought she wouldn’t have been a great candidate for extensions, but her before and after photos are breathtaking.

She left absolutely ecstatic about her new look. Stay tuned for wedding pictures coming soon…

If you’re a short-haired gal and you actually LOVE having short hair, but wish it would be fuller, or hold a style better, or there’s a specific cut you’ve always wished for, but could never achieve (such as a blunt bob that requires a certain amount of thickness to really work), hair extensions may be the solution you didn’t even know you needed.

Head on over to our application page to get started. Your dream hair is just a click away.

Garnish Hair Extensions

If you’ve seen us post about a Color Revamp or perhaps even read our previous blog post breaking down all the deets here, you may be asking yourself if YOU need a Color Revamp. First up, if you missed our previous post you’re probably wondering what a Revamp even is. If you haven’t heard the term before in any other salons it’s probably because Candice came up with it when she felt like “Corrective Color” didn’t quite feel right for what we offer.

Corrective color suggests that there’s something “wrong” with the current color. What we’ve found most often is that when women come in for hair extensions there’s nothing “wrong” with their color, but they are also not completely in love with it either. We’re big believers that if you’re going to invest time, energy, and money to extend and volumize what you already have then it should be a color and texture that you absolutely love. You can’t extend or enhance anything that’s just…meh.

With that thought process in mind, the concept of a Revamp seemed the perfect solution. At Garnish we offer two different types of Revamp—a Mini and a Full. Both services are priced at a flat rate and encompass absolutely everything needed to get you from your current color to the color of your dreams.

First up, let’s talk Minis.

The Mini Revamp includes everything you need to take your color into a new direction without completely changing into a different color. For example, if you’re already blonde, but you’re a golden blonde that tends to turn brassy and your goal is an ashier blonde—you’re the perfect candidate for a mini. Oftentimes, particularly for blondes, a highlight/lowlight just isn’t quite enough to achieve your ideal look.

The tone is super important as well as the perfect blend with your hair extensions. We opted to create a flat rate for this service—$450—because a lot of different steps need to be taken and the individual pricing can add up. With a set price, you know up front exactly what you will be investing in this new color. Revamps can include color, highlights, lowlights, toning between foils, toning after, multiple toners, clear gloss, olaplex, root smudges, and more.

If your hair goals are a little more complex such as going from blonde to brunette or vice versa, you are probably in need of a Full Color Revamp. A full revamp is essentially any transformation that requires every strand to be colored in some way. The process can be pretty involved and you are usually spending most of your day (around 5 to 6 hours) in the salon. We also have a flat rate for this service—$600—because so many intricate steps need to take place to achieve your color the right way.

Color Revamps are such a vital aspect of our transformation process because we want to ensure you LOVE your color before extending it. We would always rather take the time up front to perfect your color before you invest into adding hair extensions. It’s even something of a superpower for our studio—how deeply we value the process of perfecting your hair prior to the actual extensions.

We consider everything from the color and texture to how it will bring out your eye color and complement your skin tone.

Finally, one of the most important aspects of our Color Revamps is the end goal of achieving a lower maintenance color. What this means is that while the revamp itself is an investment up front, the look we are creating will allow your color maintenance to be significantly less.

We’re all about “lived in color,” and while it may take a little more to achieve that desired look, it will completely change the way you see color maintenance.
So if you’ve been considering hair extensions, but you’re just “okay” with your haircolor. Or if you just haven’t quite been able to achieve your color goals—A Color Revamp is probably for you. We discuss your color in detail as well as extensions during your consultation. The first step is filling out an application here.

Let’s get started on achieving the hair of your dreams!

Garnish Hair Extensions

We talk a lot about “The Garnish Experience” because it’s such a vital part of our business. It’s important to us to not only deliver on amazing hair, but to ensure the entire process is a great experience. From the moment you walk in the door (and honestly, even before that, when you find us online) to the moment you leave with your transformation complete we want you to be wowed by the experience.

Not only have we spent countless hours training to become highly skilled in our craft, but we have taken the time to perfect our business practices, create a welcoming environment, and have made a point to pay attention to even the smallest details.

It means the world to us when our guests feel so strongly about their experience that they tell their friends or write us a review. We know that hearing from a business about how they intend for an experience to be doesn’t always mean it feels that way to their clients. That’s why we wanted to share with you some recent reviews from our clients who loved their Garnish Experience. Don’t just take our word for it—take theirs!

Harlee Rowe

Have you ever had an idea of exactly what you wanted your hair to look like…but no one was ever able to achieve that full effect for you? Well, the team at Garnish will not only meet those expectations, but exceed them to the fullest. I have nothing but positive things to say about this place. The care, effort, training, and pure genuine happiness that radiates from this place is unbelievable. I had thought about getting extensions for years.

I was always hesitant, and then finally made the decision one day to go to a different salon and different stylist to receive keratin fused extensions. After 3 months I was very unhappy with my decision for a multitude of reasons that we wont get into… even down to the professionalism of the other salon and realized I should have done more research before pursuing this path. Then I came across Garnish, and had my consult with Candice. I quickly realized the level of knowledge that has poured into this place is drastically different from my prior experience. I had the NBR extensions placed, and they completely feel like my real hair.

It is just insane. My friend quoted the other day “You honestly have the texture and color of hair that every girl dreams of.” Invest in yourself. Invest in your confidence. Let the team at Garnish help you achieve that. Basically what I am saying is….Where is Tyra Banks at? Because I feel like a damn super model ever morning I wake up. *snaps* mic drop.

I cannot say enough how impressed I am by the consultation I had with Candice. They got me in quickly to remove my tape in tabs that I previously had. I am beyond excited to experience this transformation!

UPDATE: Sept. ‘19 WOW. Hands down the absolute best color I have ever had in my life. I never thought I could find a stylist/visionary who could truly get the brass out. The water here is brutal too but everyone comments on how clean my color looks and how healthy my hair looks. I can easily (no mirror, on the fly) put my hair completely up without a worry.

Garnish Hair Extensions

My husband says that the color and extensions are hands down the best investment I’ve ever made in myself. I agree!

For the gals out there that are debating if this is for you…I consider myself fairly “low-maintenance”, like the kinda girl who gets her hair cut once a year and maybe dyed once a year. Two of my friends had gotten extensions at Garnish and looked fabulous. My hair has never been something I love about myself…just blah, so I decided to take the leap and try it.

The day before my consultation I almost cancelled, again “up-keep” was not in my personal routine vocabulary but I figured the consultation was minimal commitment so I kept it. Y’all…ohmygosh…this is not a hair salon it’s like a meditation room, therapist office, and good vibe tribe all in one. Garnish is filled with such positive energy, passionate people, striving to do their best work, using hair has their tool to instill confidence in all of their clients. The positive energy i soaked in during my consultation visit was worth the consultation fee alone.

Now let’s talk hair…

I asked Candice to make me an ashy blonde. I had asked others to attempt this on before and they never came close (part of why I gave up on dying my hair). Candice came up with a plan for my hair and when I came back and had my row put in I felt the most confident I have in years. I sometimes feel guilty about spending $ on myself, this was no different, but I knew when I got home and my boyfriend who knew the investment this was and is more frugal than Dave Ramsey only had one comment “Damn baby, you look good” I knew that it was totally worth it!

As for being “high-maintenance” I had it all wrong. My hair is actually lower maintenance with the extensions in than without because I’m no longer having to wake up and figure out what to do with my limp thin, hair. You wash your hair less with extensions, therefore less drying. Basically wake up..a few wraps around the curling wand and you are off. So if you are on the fence about this…girl, jump off that thing, your best hair and the best team is waiting for you at Garnish.

If you’ve been into the studio, or even perused our website, you know that we have an application process in order to become an extension guest at Garnish. It might seem crazy to have to apply to a hair salon to have hair extensions put in, but there’s actually a pretty thorough reasoning behind our process. We wanted to break this down for you so you could have a full picture view of why this is so important inside of our industry. Our application not only garners information from the applicant, but we’ve set it up to provide a ton of important preliminary information as well.

One of the most important aspects of having a great hair extension experience is understanding the investment. With both the financial investment and time investment being significant, we want to make sure that everyone is knowledgable about what it takes to get and maintain extensions.

We also want to ensure that they are a great candidate for the type of extensions that we offer, and that we are able to meet all of their expectations. It’s important to us that we’re all on the same page, and that we are a good fit for one another. As an extension guest, you will be spending a lot of time in our studio. We are in the business of building relationships and changing lives through the art of hair, and we want the entire process to go smoothly all around.

You don’t want to devote an hour of time to come in for a consultation if we can tell right away that you’re not a good candidate or we are not a good fit for what you’re looking to have done.

What makes you a good candidate for hair extensions?

A lot of women have unfortunately experienced hair loss brought on by various things—hormones, stress, vitamin/nutrient deficiencies, etc. Before we put extensions in we want to make sure the hair is in good condition. If you’re currently shedding hair, one of the worst things you can do is add semi-permanent extensions to your hair.

It’s important to us that before you invest both money and time, we understand if your hair loss has been diagnosed yet and if it’s still occuring so we can properly guide you to the best hair solution for you and your hair. We also ask a variety of other questions that help us determine if you’re a good candidate for hair extensions. We need to know if you’ve experienced any hair trauma, a bad hair color or haircut, or anything else that might pose a problem to you having a seamless blend with hair extensions.

Other important questions are if you’ve worn extensions before and what feedback you can provide from your past experience. We also ask about medication because some medications can contribute to hair loss. And finally, one of the most significant questions we ask is about your lifestyle. There’s a lot of activities that people engage in such as rock climbing, hot yoga, etc. that may not be the best fit for some of the methods that we offer. Learning about you helps us really sift through and make a well-informed decision on what will be the best fit for you as our professional recommendation.

It’s also absolutely vital to us that every guest is well-informed about the investment for every aspect of hair extensions. We want to make sure that you know everything that goes along with wearing extensions. The application helps us learn what’s important to you for your hair extensions experience, and allows us to manage expectations on both sides. Learning these details is something we can’t know just from looking at a photo. If we see something that is a red flag, we will reach out and let you know before you consider coming into the studio because we want you to be well-informed.

The final aspect of our application process is the photos. We ask you to upload a few pictures of yourself currently and your biggest inspirations. Together, these show us how much of a hair extension journey we are going to be on and how much hair we are going to have to apply. We can gain so much insight based on the photos you provide such as is your end goal realistic, or is it at least something we can grow into?

It also helps us determine if your hair needs will fit into something that we offer here in the studio.

From start to finish the application only takes about 10-15 minutes to fill out, and consultations are typically set up within the next week or so. We’ve cultivated this thorough process to ensure you have a great experience. We have such a high satisfaction rate inside of our studio and we believe it’s because of this application helping us and our clients sift through information and really set up the process to go smoothly.

If you’ve been considering hair extensions and have been wondering if you should fill out an application, we’d love to hear from you. Just click here to apply and we’ll be in touch soon!

Hair Extensions

There’s one question we get asked far more than any other questions when it comes to hair extensions.

The number one thing everyone wants (and needs) to know is what exactly is the ACTUAL investment of hair extensions.

We’ve found that there’s not a lot of information out there that really breaks down the cost of quality hair extensions, so we wanted to go ahead and lay it all out there for you. We never want anyone to feel like they don’t understand what’s involved or they aren’t prepared for both the time and cost commitment of hair extensions.

Before we break down the numbers, we wanted to talk a little bit about investment. Like so many things, hair extensions can range in quality in many ways. The quality of the hair itself, the quality of the method, along with the quality of the actual installment can all make a huge difference in both your experience and the cost of extensions. Here at Garnish, we have chosen to only work with the top brands within the industry of hair extensions.

Each brand that we work with guarantees the premium quality of their hair and is one of a few methods we consider to be the safest, most comfortable, and most natural looking. When it comes to the installment of extensions, the experience of your stylist is extremely important.

Hair Extension Investment

Our owner, Candice, has spent over a decade devoting countless hours and thousands of dollars into education for every method, honing her skills, and becoming truly expert level. Each of our stylists is committed to learning and growing in the same way, both from Candice in the studio and from external classes. Continuing education is vital within the hair industry in general, but especially in the growing world of hair extensions.

In addition to the quality of extensions, an important aspect of your investment in hair extensions is the time involved. For our studio, that means beginning with an in-person consultation, the time of your extension application, along with the time for your maintenance appointments. Our consultations are typically around 45 minutes. In addition to answering some questions that help us guide the rest of your consult, this time allows you to understand the details of extensions, really figure out what’s going to be the right fit for you, and answer any questions you might have. We consider this an absolutely vital step to your extension experience.

When you come in for your extensions application, there are typically one of two things happening. Either you have a color you already love and you’re just receiving extensions, or you’re getting a color revamp prior to your extension application. The color portion takes on average 2-3 hours, but if you are receiving a corrective color it could take longer. Your initial extension application averages between 1-3 hours depending on the method, amount of hair, and the stylist applying your extensions.

To ensure a great experience with hair extensions, you absolutely must commit to properly maintaining your extensions. Most methods require maintenance at around 6-8 weeks, give or take a week depending on your hair needs and hair growth. Each maintenance appointment takes on average 1-3 hours depending on the method, amount of hair, and the stylist performing your maintenance service. During your consultation, you can get a more accurate estimate of time for your particular services.
Alright, let’s dive in to the part you’re really here for—the financial investment of hair extensions.

curly hair extensions

When it comes to estimating the cost, it can be difficult to provide an accurate range due to how many factors can influence the price. The method of extensions, amount of hair, length of hair, texture of hair, and even color of the hair can alter the cost of the extensions. This is why extension stylists are so hesitant to give a quote or even ballpark prior to having an in-person consultation.

Here’s our best summary of the cost of extensions based on some general assumptions.

1. Looking to add volume, but not length, with average length of hair. For most methods that we offer, this is going to be somewhere around $1,200-$2,000. For example, this would be one row of NBR extensions.

2. Looking to add volume, and some length. This category can range a little more and will typically fall into the $1,800-$3,000 range. Most often when looking for volume and length, even if it’s not a signficant length difference, more hair is needed. Typically, this would be two rows of NBR extensions.

3. Looking for major volume and all the length aka bombshell hair. When long, luscious hair is your goal, the cost of investment is typically going to start around $3,000 and go up from there. This would be three rows of NBR extensions.

4. When you’re looking to address thinning, hair loss, or an area of concern, typically you will be in need of a Crown Extension. The cost of a crown extension can range quite a bit based on how customized it needs to be, but the average cost is going to be somewhere between $2,000-$3,500.

From our studio, every extension quote includes the actual extension hair, application of your extensions, custom color of the extensions, the blending cut, style, and 2 week follow up appointment. Any color to your natural hair is not included in your extensions quote.

The cost of maintenance varies based on the method of extensions, amount of hair, and the stylist’s level. Most methods start around $100. NBR extensions begin at $150 and go up from there based on the number of rows and stylist’s certification level. The quote you receive during your consultation will also include the cost of maintenance for your particular hair extensions. There’s also a feature of NBR Extensions worth mentioning in relation to investment.

Typically with hair extensions you invest in a full set, wear it for 3-6 months, and then get a whole new set. With NBR we have the ability to replace wefts of hair without replacing the entire set. What this looks like is at your maintenance appointment, you would add new hair (replacing the pieces in the worst condition), which revitalizes your set of extensions and extends the longevity of your full set. We have had guests go 9 months to up to a year before having to purchase a full new set just by strategically adding new pieces of hair along the way.

One last thing to note when it comes to the cost of hair extensions. Each of our stylists brings a different level of experience, expertise, and style to their extension services. We have a level system that differentiates these aspects, which also means each of our stylists has slightly different pricing. As the owner and extension expert, Candice’s pricing is going to be the most investment. We know that everyone has a different beauty budget and we want them to feel confident in choosing one of our other stylists for their transformation.

Our Creative Director, Niko, brings incredible artistry and attention to detail to her extension transformations. Our New Talent Stylist, Reece, does amazing extension maintenance services, and is currently completing his full transformation training. No matter whose chair you sit in, the Garnish Experience remains the same—our commitment to the highest quality of service and artistry is a studio standard.
