How much do hair extensions cost?

Each look is custom, down to the hair color, texture and length desired. The consult was created to explain all the options and costs available to you for different solutions. In general, my work is high-end and my prices are competitive. Because of my high work ethic, all of my work comes with a satisfaction guarantee so you can pick DawnRivard.com with assurance.

Why do I need a consult?

Since custom looks can start at $300.00, including the hair, a consult will provide you with all the information you need to make a decision about what look will work best for your hair and lifestyle. In addition, it gives me the opportunity to put together an accurate estimate that clearly reflects what your hair needs are. It’s important that we both understand that I have the same ideas and solutions to create your look. My most valuable asset is customer loyalty which I achieve by developing and maintaining relationships with each one of my clients. There's no point in us building a relationship based on your hair if we don’t have the same philosophy. I will not compromise my high standard, and neither should you!

How long does the installation take?

A normal head application takes 2-5 hours including the finished cut, which is why we need to know we can work together!

How does it work?

The process starts with the consult that determines the system that will work best for you. Then I provide 100% human hair that is suitably matched to yours. It is then applied and we keep in contact to assess how that system is working for you and how often you require it to be maintained.

Will it damage my natural hair?

Being able to pick from many systems, your hair is in better shape after the hair extensions have been worn than before.

Do I have to use special products for my hair?

Most products are compatible with the various hair extension methods. If you bring your favorite products with you, we can confirm they are compatible.

Can you see the hair extensions?

The extensions are attached behind your hairline and away from where you part your hair. No one will know you wear them unless you tell them!

Are they comfortable?

There is no discomfort since the installation and maintenance is geared to an individual's requirements.

Can I care for my hair like usual?

Thanks to choosing the right method you can color, perm, swim and care for your hair like normal. Have fun expressing the new you!

Will the hair match my color and texture?

Absolutely! I will take a swatch of your hair and will match your color and texture to the length you desire.

How long does the hair last?

Some systems allow you to reuse the hair so the purchase of the 100% human hair is a one-time deal. I have clients that have worn the same hair for a year and only changed it when they wanted a new hairstyle.

How often do I need to do maintenance after the initial application?

As with all hair, this will vary depending on growth, natural shedding and what your preferences are. Some clients will come in once a month; others come in every 4 months. Generally ALL hair extensions last 3-6 months depending on how you care for them.

If my hair is damaged from chemicals, can I have hair extensions put in?

Yes, but every client needs to be assessed to make sure hair extensions are advisable for you.

Is it the safest thing to protect your hair while it is growing out?

My concern is to protect your hair from more damage. ALL my clients experience hair growth because the extensions allow them to stop over-processing their own hair, but still have the hair color they want.

How long does my hair have to be?

It can be 2 inches long. Miracles can happen for people with very short hair who have had bad hair experiences or for medical reasons.

Can I change my hair color with extensions?

Yes! You can do virtually any chemical service on your hair professionally or use hair extensions to highlight and change your look.

Will I be able to wear my hair up?

Yes. You also can part you hair anywhere helping with the illusion that the hair is all yours.

Can I add volume without length?

Yes, thick hair implies youth and lots of clients do it.

Do you offer training?

My training is reserved for my clients rather than professionals. I’m interested in empowering them to be able to do the most with their hair. I will explain the different systems, what they do and how they work. My clients and I work together as a team; not me for them, or them for me.
