Which extensions are made for me?

The desire to have a beautiful cascade of hair sometimescomes without warning. It's just a matter of checking out Instagram and thereit is: a photo of Kim K with long, lustrous hair. For people (like me) whocan't wait for a Rapunzel-like look, discover these gorgeous hair extensions!

The desire to have a beautiful cascade of hair sometimes comes without warning. It's just a matter of checking out Instagram and there it is: a photo of Kim K with long, lustrous hair. For people (like me) who can't wait for a Rapunzel-like look, discover these gorgeous hair extensions!

 

 

 

 

1. Tape-in hair extensions - Cold fusion

Comfortable and discreet thanks to their very flat design, tape-in hair extensions are ideal to obtain volume for those who have fine hair. They can be applied quickly with the "sandwich" method: a very thin section of an extension is inserted near the roots of your real hair, between two adhesive strips.

 

 

Ideal application: By a professional
Maintenance appointments: Every 8 weeks

 

 

 

 

2. Keratin - Hot fusion

Undetectable and strong! Keratin extensions are applied by heating the end of the extension’s strand (containing the keratin) at the root of your natural hair strand. The strands weld together and after several full rows, you get dreamy volume and/or length. If you take good care of your keratin extensions, it is possible to reuse them for another application by simply changing the end of the extension.

 

 

 

Ideal application: By a professional

Maintenance appointments: Every 12 weeks

 

 

 

 

3. Clip-in extensions

Perfect for a temporary look, clip-in extensions are very easy to apply. You basically clip them onto your hair. Just divide your hair into horizontal sections and clip them at the root. Have fun trying different colours with them. They provide volume and/or length in just a few minutes! Don't forget to remove them before showering: hand wash and blow dry gently.

 

 

Ideal application: On your own or by a professional
Maintenance appointments: Varies according to frequency of use

 

 

 

 

4. Weft (sew-in) extensions

These extensions are the same ones used with the clip-in method; however, they are applied in a more permanent way. A small horizontal braid is made and the weft of hair (often there are different widths, depending on the location) is sewn in. Repeat on several rows—and you’ll get the desired length. Perfect for normal to thick hair.

 

 

 

Ideal application: By a professional
Maintenance appointments: Every 6 to 12 weeks

 

 

 

 

5. Bead hair extensions

Similar to keratin extensions, bead hair extensions must be applied strand-by-strand. The difference? There is no “glue” involved. The extension is attached with a small metal ring to a strand of your hair. You then flatten it so that it holds firmly. This technique is not recommended on fine and greasy hair, because the extensions may slip, as they do not have any product that adheres them to your roots. It is possible to reuse the extensions by changing the rings duringyour next appointment!

 

 

 

Ideal application: By a professional
Maintenance appointments: Every 8 weeks

 

 

 

 

6. Hair piece extensions

Want bangs for one night only? A long braid for an event? A bun without having to style it? Hair pieces will be your best allies for a new, yet temporary, look. Often, they are attached with one or more clips for a quick and easy installation.

 

 

 

Ideal application: On your own or by a professional
Maintenance Varies according to frequency of use

 

 

 

 

7. Volumizer hair extensions

This invisible extensions are installed by simply dividing your hair horizontally in the middle of the back of your head. In a few seconds, you will have extra volume and length. As with all extension techniques, make sure you have the right shade to match your hair colour and you're done!

 

 

 

Ideal application: On your own or by a professional
Maintenance appointments: Varies according to frequency of use

How to successfully colour your hair at home

Want to change your hair for the upcoming season? This spring, choose your inspiration…from golden russet to powder pink to icy mocha…and start colouring! In order to prevent your DIY from making you want to hide in a closet, read this special COLOURING article. We have answers to your questions! Happy reading!

Want to change your hair for the upcoming season? This spring, choose your inspiration…from golden russet to powder pink to icy mocha…and start colouring! In order to prevent your DIY from making you want to hide in a closet, read this special COLOURING article. We have answers to your questions! Happy reading!

 

 

1. There are so many choices! Where do you begin?

Several factors will influence the choice of your hair colour. But above all, let's start with the current state of your hair. Is it natural or coloured? Do you have highlights or even a hue achieved with henna? Ask your colour expert. Doing this from the start will prevent you from having to correct the colour later, which is costly, complex and completely avoidable.

 

 

 

 

 2. How do you tell the difference between the various types of colouring?

Semi-permanent (gloss): Want a pastel or bright shade for your bleached hair? More shine? More control over an unwanted reflection? Semi-permanent hair colour enables you to do all of this…everything, except white hair coverage.

 

Demi-permanent: This works great for those with less than 25% white hair. Its oxidant is weaker than permanent colouring, which reduces the noticeable effect of regrowth.

 

Permanent :Its opacity is ideal to cover white hair perfectly. Used with 10, 20 or 30 volume oxidants, this one certainly provides the best coverage.

 

 

 

 

3. I use the same colour formula every time…so why doesn't it always give the same result?

Several factors are possible. Did you perhaps let it act a little too long or not long enough? Did you apply it to the roots only or the entire length? If your hair has lightened between two colourings (exposure to the sun, swimming in the ocean or in the pool, washing your hair more frequently, etc.), it’s very likely that you’ll notice a difference.

 

 

 

 

4. Why are the numbers on the tubes different depending on the colouring company?

The first number represents the level.The next two digits represent the highlights and the undertones. The meaning of these differ depending on the company. Sometimes, there are even letters to designate the reflections. Refer to our colouring expert who masters these numbers and letters like no other!

 

 

 

 

5. Why doesn’t blonde hair colour work on my dyed brown hair?

One colour does not lighten another! Arm yourself with patience, because it’s difficult to get there in one step. With the right products (make-up remover, bleach) and above all, a good colouring expert, you’ll eventually get that dreamy polar blonde you wanted!

 

 

 

 

6. I constantly have a warm highlight in my hair, despite colouring with neutral or cool highlights. Why?

You may be naturally chestnut or brunette. Your pigmentation hides under these natural shades that are 100% warm. For example, the darker your hair is, the more it will lean towards red. Unless you have a very ashy colour and use colouring shampoos that neutralize warm tints, it’s normal for some warm highlights to surface over time.

 

 

 

 

7. Why does my colour expert advise against doing highlights at home?

Home colouring requires precision and care. Your locks ask for this, but on an even more complex level! For example, the position of the selected locks, avoid application to old locks because there’s a greater risk of damaging your hair, etc. Damage can be very expensive and difficult to repair.

 

 

 

 

8. I tried a different colour with a semi-permanent colour (gloss). However, it has stayed in my hair for weeks! Why?

Your hair’s porosity tends to make the pigments fade quickly or, on the contrary, to keep them too long. Do a “test” wick before applying the colour to the rest of your hair and avoid unpleasant surprises!

 

 

 

We hope we’ve demystified some of the questions frequently asked in salons or in shops! Never hesitate to ask your Éléganza colour experts for information. Their knowledge makes all the difference between a perfect colouring and a blatant disappointment. Here’s one last little tip: show them your inspirations in photos! When it comes to colouring, there’s nothing truer: a picture really is worth a thousand words!

Get your brushes ready!

  • Draw a super heroine mask around your eyes with the “Prick”shade from the Jeffree Star Blood Sugar mini palette

 

 

All you have to do now is choose your superpowers (other than having to wear a tablecloth, without anyone noticing...that'salready a lot)!

Hairstyling: Puff.Me Texturizing Spray by Design Me

Seen on runways

As seen at the Chanel Fall/Winter 2021-2022runway show, long, straight hair is trending. This timeless style radiatesthrough the ultra-shiny touch you can give it. For people like me who were bornwith a haystack for hair, I suggest starting with a moisturizing treatment toclose your hair cuticles. After blow-drying your hair with a round brush,straighten it with an iron. To prevent damage from mechanical heat, use a heatprotectant. To top it off, add some oil to give your mane the shiny look youwant!

DETANGLING

 

CALA WET-N-DRY HAIR BRUSH 

What’s the first step you need to take before getting the style of your dreams? Untangle your hair! Whatever the desired result, you need to begin by removing your tangles. The Wet-N-Dry brush is specially-designed to do so gently, of course. Improve mornings with your family and end the cries of “Ouch! You’re pulling me!” when it's time to brush your loved ones’ hair. Your best bet: start brushing from the tips and backtrack towards the scalp for optimal results, as your hair is its most fragile when it’s wet.

 

 

 

ROUND

 

CALA PRO STYLING BRUSH - MINT 

Armed with your blow dryer and round brush, begin by drying the hair around the edge of your face. This will make it easier to control the little fine hairs that tend to frizz if you don't get them under control from the get-go. Then, using clips, dry horizontal sections of your hair at a width similar to the diameter of the brush being used. This way, each hair will dry perfectly and it will keep them from being frizzy.

 

*The higher you raise it up when you dry, the better the volume will be.😎

 

 

 

RECTANGLE

 

AVANTI CUSHION BRUSH 

The main advantage of this brush is that it helps you save on drying time, thanks to its large surface. You can do your entire brushing with this, or do what I do: Once my hair is 80% dried, I stop using it and I finish the job with a round brush for more movement. For snag-free brushing, hold the rectangle brush vertically, not horizontally.

 

* The Avanti rectangle brush has negative ions to eliminate static and make the hair particularly shiny.🤩

 

 

Now that you know everything, all you have to do is find the motivation to do your hair!
