We are available to answer any questions or concerns you may have post fitting.
We offer a range of services which will ensure your natural hair and extensions remain in healthy, beautiful condition throughout wear.
post fitting check
All new clients are welcome to book in for a post fitting check within the first 2 weeks.
We will check the attachments and in the very rare event you have lost any strands these will be refitted free of charge.
A post fitting check allows us to ensure thorough aftercare is being followed, that your hair and scalp are coping with the additional weight and make any adjustments where necessary.
fusion bond maintenance
Fusion bonds are worn for longer than lock methods so it is recommended you attend a bond tidy appointment to prevent matting.
A bond tidy trims the natural excess shed hairs which sit above the bond. This prevents them becoming entangled with the neighbouring bond.
Each strand is separated row by row, any matting will be gently teased apart and a good root brushing carried out.
Available as a 1 or 2 hour appointment depending on how many bonds are fitted or if any matting is present.
