Hair Extensions by Forbici


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.  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. 

 

Choosing 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.

Halo, Dreamcatchers, She and Hairtalk are the brands of extensions we currently use.

The fish line and weft isn’t seen and you have added length and volume instantly with very little damage.
