New Hair Extension Colors - A Game Changer

Believe it or not, there are a handful of hair extension colors that are quite popular!  Solid shades tend to be the best sellers, second is two-tone piano shades, third is balayage shades, but there are colors that are difficult to match; those being subtle hues, color variations, and tones for natural hair.  These tones tend to live in the blonde shade category, and at Veila Pull-Thru Hair Virgin Extensions, we created the "Reversible" hair color which is very similar in shade.  One side is slightly darker/lighter than the other and can be applied as such.   Our new hair colors...

What Are The Most Affordable Hair Extensions?

During these difficult days between Covid, worldwide unrest, and a recession, how does one possibly afford high-quality hair extensions?  The answer is investing in a method of hair extensions that are re-usable, made of virgin hair as well as durable.  The method of hair extension I am speaking of is Veila Pull-Thru, the method of attachment is made of strong polyurethane with holes that hair can be pulled through.  The attachment area receives very little stress unlike hand-tied wefts, which are sewn around a grid of micro-links, after removing and resewing the hand-tied weft eventually breaks down and is rendered...

Getting The Most Natural Looking Hair Extensions?

As a hair extension expert for over 20 years, I am shocked to discover that salons are using only one or two types of hair extensions, which are often hand-tied tracks or tape hair extensions.  In an industry filled with countless methods of hair extensions, learning one method of extensions is a mistake.  Case in point, a lovely young lady with very fine hair came to Noelle Salon wanting to fix multiple hand-tied tracks which were falling out of her hair, they were not improperly applied, they were too heavy for her own fine hair to support.  The extensions were...
