hair extensions

Hair extensions can be a gorgeous way to add major body or length to lifeless hair or short styles. We know waiting for a bob to grow out can be frustrating, especially when many fall hair styles seem designed for long cuts. In the past, hair extensions didn’t always look like your natural tresses, however, as techniques have evolved, extensions have gone from obvious to very natural. In fact, a great hair stylist can even add extensions without any telltale signs. Canale Salon has a dedicated extension stylist that excels at blending in real hair with your own so that you leave our salon with natural-looking, gorgeous locks. So, who should consider hair extensions?

Fine-haired divas. Ever just wish you had more hair in your pencil-thin pony? If you love your length and your hair has bounce, but you want to bulk up your braids or add more curls to the mix, extensions can be an excellent option. Carefully added extensions can transform thin hair into thick tresses in an afternoon.

Length lovers. Whether you chopped your hair for a must-have short style or your hair won’t budge past a certain length, extensions can help you achieve a length you’ll love. Our stylists can help blend shorter hair into your new long locks for natural-looking length.

Body builders. If your hair goes from fab to flat in 20 minutes, extensions can add major body to hair. Working with your stylist, you can select how much or how little hair you’d like added. Beef up the look for more bounce, or add a more minimal amount for a less drastic update.

The reality is, almost anyone can get extensions. Unless your hair is especially fine or thick, most clients can enjoy extensions. Our Beverly Hills salon uses 100% human hair extensions that have been dyed and matched to your hair for a perfect complement.

Super Fine Hair Tips

If you’ve been blessed with super fine hair, you know how difficult it can be to make your hair pull off the looks that decorate your (and practically everyone you know’s) Pinterest boards. Ugh. Need height at the crown to mimic Scarlett Johansson’s amazing Oscars hair? Dreaming of a big fat braid like we’ve seen Blake Lively rock? Visiting your Southern family who has back-combing down to an art form? Before you say, “Forget it, not gonna happen”, sample a few of our tried-and-true hair tips for faking (and making!) serious hair volume happen.

Consider Some Color

Did you know bleaching hair can actually plump up the individual hair shafts? The trick is making sure that you don’t damage hair by over bleaching and drying out your strands. Celebrity hair colorist Michael Canale is renowned for his ability to achieve gorgeous, healthy, moisturized blond locks for his clients.  A visit to Michael can result in gorgeous color and a little extra body!

Say “Buh-Bye” to the Dryer

News flash! Skipping your blow dryer can result in maximum volume and can help prevent damage. Win, win. Wash hair at night and let it air dry as you sleep. A little dry shampoo in the morning and natural teasing from tossing and turning can result in extra oomph come the early hours.

Skip the Shampoo

If you’re spending too much time singing and suds-ing in the shower, your hair may be losing its chance to shine (and we’re not talking about grease). Letting your hair grunge out for a day can add extra body with a little help from dry shampoo and a few hot tools. As our stylists for their favorite product suggestions.

Powder Those Pins

We hinted about this on Facebook earlier in the month, and we’ll say it again: spraying bobby pins with dry shampoo or a puff of hairspray can help prevent slippery strands from wrecking your crown braid. And we know how hard it is to achieve a perfect crown braid…

Take on the Texturizing Spray

If dry shampoo is a fine-textured hair girl’s BFF, than texturing spray is her fairy godmother. Wish for big volume? Poof. Texturizing spray adds mega height without weighing hair down or looking like you doused your head in ‘90s hair gel.

Another option for boosting your hair thickness is to have one of our team of hair stylists create natural-looking real hair extensions. We have a dedicated extension artist in the salon that can help you determine how to maximize your tresses. To schedule an appointment with them or with celebrity hair stylist Michael Canale at our Beverly Hills hair salon, call us at 310-273-8080.
