WOW! Great install. She looks great with long hair! I think I would pull some pink streaks through the long layers.

What brand/kind of hair did you use?

Wow, what a pretty girl and a pretty install! Good job. Love the pink. How far up did you go with her wefts? It blends flawlessly. Did you notice any differences in installing hair with this method as opposed to sew-ins -- even timewise? Thanks a lot for sharing your pics! :D

Thanks ladies!!! Sherry I forgot what brand she used.........can't remember but it was very familiar to me. I've used it before.

To answer the other question.....I went up pretty far with small pieces. All the way to the crown for sure and smaller pieces on the side. It took me awhile to do. I've gotta get used to peeling the paper off of the tape. My tape kept wanting to roll up as I pulled it off :?

I think I did a pretty darn good job myself. I used my scissors to slice through the hair for blending. I am pretty good with making hair look good but my concern is how long the bond holds.

My client is having some lifting o the ends of some of the wefts.....mainly at the top. I told her to buy a bottle of LG for touch ups. It's normal to have to touch up here and there right???

I recommend that all of my clients come back every two weeks for maintenance regarless of what method they are wearing. My charge is really low.....30.00 for a shampoo , conditon and tighten (touch up if needed) Do guys think this is reasonable??

One suggestion that I have for you. (And you may already be doing this) Cut your tapes slighter wider than you wefts. I cut my tapes so that the tape is about 1/4 inch extra tape on each end of the weft. Seems to help with lifting for me, sort of seals the edges. I used to get a little lifting, but only on rare occassion now.

Your prices sound VERY reasonable!

Well.....let me explain a few things. I'm in Baton Rouge La. I mostly do sewin weave on ethnic hair. There are many nonprofessionals to comepete with (with sewin weaves) My price for a full sewin is 150 but I am running a three month special for 110.00.

Although I have been doing extensions for over 12 years I was only doing it partime (my play money) About 6 months ago I was layed off of my full time job so I decided to go full time (working in a salon). I am really content right now because I can work half of a day and make what it took me 8 hours to make on my old job.

So.....to make a long story short....I know its a very low price but........its really helping me to build my clientell. It keeps them coming back : )

I am so happy to hear that you are happy and making good money at what you enjoy! that's what it's all about. You must have been laid off for a reason because look how it turned out! I think you are doing it the right way so you can attract and maintain your clientele.

:cry: Well my client called this morning and said she had a few loose tracks. I had her to come back and the last track was very loose. I reattached it with some LG. Her two top tracks were loose also. I reattched them .

I sandwiched the hair, I left a lil' tape on the ends and sealed it by adding LG to the ends.............Bah, blah blah.........basically I followed Sherry's tutorial. Some of her tracks felt a lil' sticky and it seemed to me that the LG had started to dissolve a bit. I made sure to talk to her about avoiding conditioners and creamy oily shampoos. It has only been a week since I installed her hair. I'm dissappointed because I at least wanted to see her wear the install for a month.

She is really wanting me to do fusion which I am ready to do but........I'm afraid it wont hold up to my expectations. Any words of advice cause I am panicing?? I've gotta get this thing right in order to DO IT BIG like my competitors.

I am totally comfortable dealing with ethnic hair..........I've dealt with my own for 32 years :lol: but man, I really have to up my game with caucasian hair. It's kinda funny because my lil client is so sweet but she is really tenderheaded. You know how sometimes you get the lil strings of hair that rebel and get stuck where they arent supposed to?? It kills her and I laugh cause I can only imagine her trying to get microbraids or something. :P She would die!!!

Ok ladies I need your expertise here :D

If your going to do fusion, u can always get the u shaped pre tipped hair it makes it so easy, and almost eliminates shedding, but if she wants to invest in good hair and be able to reuse it over and over I always go with the shrinkies, or microlinks. U can reuse the fusion hair but it takes a lot of time and patience to remove and re tip them. I don't know I never tried the wefts on myself, I always went to the individuals, so can't give u any advise with that! Good luck with whatever u chose, I'm sure you'll rock it!
