A weave is a type of extension. There are different types, such as glued instead of braided extensions. Hair weaves are plats of hair which are attached to a braid. This technique creates volume and lengthening.

The used Hair Extensions are developed in a way that prevents your hair or scalp to be overburdened. The hair weaves are delicate, thin plats which won’t be fastened too tightly against the scalp.
The attachment won’t hurt. The first few days the weaves might feel a little tight, but afterwards you won’t notice any difference with your own hair.
Our Hair Extensions are made from the highest quality human hair. Due to the unique weaving system and because the structure corresponds to the Western hair and therefore also to the Dutch hair, the Extensielle hair extensions fuse with your own hair.
Usually the weaves need to be re-attached somewhere between four and eight weeks. This depends on the speed at which your own hair grows and how well you maintain your weaves.
Hair extensions last approximately six months, however it does depend on the colour, length and care.
The hair plats are interwoven with the own hair. This braiding technique causes the hair to be attached tightly and can’t suddenly get loose or fall off.
Your own hair needs to be approximately 15 centimeters. But you are welcome to visit us to discuss the possibilities.
