How Long Do Hair Extensions Last?

Longer, fuller hair is back with a bang, and clients can’t get enough of it. As stylists, we love selling clients on hair extensions because they leave feeling transformed and we know there’s a good chance they’ll be back for more. Like hair dye and any other style that requires regular upkeep, hair extensions usually add up to multiple appointments.

Because hair extensions are something of a high-value investment, one of the first questions clients will ask is how long they can be expected to last. In this post from National Salon Resources, we’re taking a closer look at hair extensions to help you give your clients more of what they want.

Types of Hair Extensions

The type of hair extension you choose to you will be based on what goals your client has for their hair. Whether they’re looking for volume, fullness, and/or length, you’ll be able to acheive their dream with a custom combination of hair extensions. However, different types of extensions can be expected to last longer than others. Remind your clients that good extension maintenance can also keep them looking great longer.

These are the most common types of hair extensions and how long they can be expected to last:

●Tape-In Extensions: 6-8 Weeks

Tape-in extensions are a popular choice that can be easily refreshed. Held to the hair using adhesive tape, tape-in extensions look good growing out and can be eventually taped back in to freshen up the look. Remind clients to make sure tape-ins are completely dry before brushing so they’ll last longer. Not to mention, they are one of the fastest methods to install.

●Beaded Extensions: 8-10 Weeks

Beaded strands allow for more customized placement, plus their 360 degree movement allows for a more flexible hairstyling. This is a great choice for first time extension clients.

●Sew-In Extensions: 6-8 Weeks

Hand-Tied Weft extensions are perfect for seamless length. They’re a one-of-a-kind method that includes sewing each weft onto a track of silicone beads. Machine Sewn Wefts are made for instant, maximum volume. This extension has been designed for clients with medium to thick hair.
