Hair extensions are no longer just for the rich and famous, anyone can use extensions to upgrade their look easily and with very little effort! Whether you are looking to add color, length, or some extra volume, all of the brands that we carry at Forbici Salon are made from natural hair and can be heat styled. When thinking of getting hair extensions, there are many things to consider such as pricing, maintenance and any potential damage that may occur as a result of having hair extensions. It is always best to leave it to a pro to ensure that your extensions not only look good and last longer, but will keep your hair healthier long term. Friction at the scalp, wind damage from boating or motorcycle rides, along with how you care for your extensions will impact your natural hair and the life of your extensions.

5 Options for selecting the best hair extensions for you

The kind of extensions you should select all depends on the kind of look you are seeking. If you want them to look subtle, the extensions should blend with your natural hair tones. If you want them to stand out, then you can opt for that unique pop of color. It is important to be realistic about the length you want. It is best to start with your current length and then figure out how long you want or can go from there. For example, if your hair is shorter and you do not have layers, you want to make sure you integrate your length properly so don't go unnaturally too long. Halo, Dreamcatchers, She and Hairtalk are the brands of extensions we currently use.

1) Halo Extensions

This is an option to add volume and length with no commitment! This is hair that is sewn into a large weft with clips and attached to a fish line.

2) Tape-In Extensions

These make for a fabulous introduction to extensions! Tape-in Extensions are comfortably secured by a non-slip, medical grade adhesive. The tabs stay locked in place until ready to be moved-up every 6-8 weeks.

3) I-Tip Extensions

A number of natural hairs are fused together at the tip to resemble the end of a shoe lace. These are attached to your own hair by crimping a small silicone coated metal bead around a number of your own hairs.

4) Weft Extensions

Wefts are rows of hair that are machine sewn together and are the best option when wanting to add a lot of length. Two rows are typically the recommendation.

5) Bonded Extensions

These are about a quarter inch wide and have multiple hairs bonded together with a hardened keratin protein that is melted with a hot implement and wrapped around multiple strands of your natural hair.

When it comes to spa services, most guys are still a little bit in the dark. However, once men are educated on the health benefits of spa services targeted just for them – they are usually more likely to give these treatments a try. And from there, they usually get hooked!

Over the past few years, men now account for a nearly 1/2 of all guests, according to the most recent Consumer Snapshot released by the International SPA Association (ISPA). What’s driving the demand? “Men are becoming increasingly aware of the health and wellness benefits that spa treatments offer, in most cases, they’re overworked, stressed and tired, so they’re looking for a brief respite from the craziness of their jobs and family life, and appreciate the calming atmosphere that a spa provides.”

Because men are becoming more aware of personal appearance/wellness, salons and spas are creating a wider range of services specifically for guys so they feel more comfortable booking treatments. Forbici has been offering a variety of men's services for many years and over time, we have noticed some of the favorites among "the guys".

Men's Deep Tissue massage - Men love a good massage, especially if they’re athletically inclined. This ultra-relaxing service is designed for those who need special attention to various muscle groups. This will improve circulation to the structural layers of muscle tissue, and address chronic tension patterns.

Mens back treatment- This targeted treatment is especially popular during warmer months! Many of our female guests come in and request the service for their partners.

This is an essential maintenance for a smooth, clear back. This is ideal for problematic skin conditions such as acne. This treatment begins with deep cleansing and enzyme therapy under steam. Shoulders and upper arms are relaxed with an oriental acupressure massage. To finish, a detoxifying mud therapy mask is followed up with an invigorating application of oil-free moisturizer.

Gentlemen's facial - This service is fully customizable and provides immediate results! This treatment is designed to ease shaving and keep skin healthy looking. Includes a complete skin assessment, custom blended deep cleansing, steam and enzyme exfoliation, and a conditioning mask personalized for your skin. You’ll also experience a de-stressing massage of the face, neck and shoulders that will leave you feeling totally relaxed and refreshed.

Manicures: A man’s hands need to presentable at all times and regular manicures can make this happen! This is recommended as a weekly service to keep your nails looking their best. Complete with a hand massage, nail and cuticle grooming.

Pedicures- The best way to get your feet in bare foot or flip-flop shape! Pedicures are great for circulation, relaxation and rejuvenation. Soak those aching feet in our whirlpool bath and enjoy a eucalyptus masque that will cool your muscles and smooth away dry skin. After a firm-pressured foot massage, your nails and cuticles will be groomed.
