Great Lengths Hair Extentions

What is a Great Lengths Hair Extension?

Great Lengths Hair Extensions are color matched real hair that are bonded to your existing hair to give you the extra length you want without the wait. 100% of the hair sourced for Great Lengths is from India. The women of India are known throughout the world for their beautiful long hair and for the natural and mild hair care products they use. This is the finest source of virgin hair available in the marketplace that is most compatible with Caucasian and European hair textures. The quality of our hair is unmatched.

Why Choose Great Lengths Hair Extensions?

Great Lengths International developed and patented the first pre-tipped, synthesized keratin bond polymer In 1992. The GL Synthesized Keratin Bond molecular structure is specifically designed to mimic the molecular structure of human hair. The result gives the Great Lengths Hair Extension superior bonding that is not available in any other hair bonding compound in the marketplace. The functionality is the Great Lengths bond has the ability to expand and contract with human hair. For example, when you wash your hair or get it wet, the hair shaft expands. When it dries it contracts. Bonds that do not possess such function will soon begin to shed the extensions and ultimately slide off the clientâs natural hair completely because the bond is being stretched with no capacity to contract each time the clientâs natural hair expands and contracts. This is a Great Lengths exclusive feature. The extensions are virtually impossible to detect and offer tremendous versatility.

How are Great Lengths Hair Extension Processed?

The only processes performed on Great Lengths hair is our colorization process. Great Lengths is the only Company that does not use any toxic chemicals (i.e. ammonia and/or bleach derivatives) in the de-pigmentation and pigmentation process of our hair. The result is colorfast hair that has not been subjected to damaging ammonia and/or bleach chemicals to remove the hairs original color.

I’ve been seeing Vivien for almost 2 years now! I have super fine ans short hair. I get the great lenghts extension (18inch). Vivien does a phenomenal job… She always makes my hair look so natural and matches the color perfectly! They usually last up to 5 months and don’t do any damage to my hair! Definitely would recommend her to anyone needing quality extensions and color!

Why Choose Great Lengths Hair Extensions?

The Hair:

100% of the hair sourced for Great Lengths is from the Temples of India. This is the finest source of virgin hair available in the marketplace that is most compatible with Caucasian and European hair textures. The quality of our hair is unmatched.

The Colorization Process:

The only processes performed on Great Lengths hair is our colorization process.

The stylists:

Great Lengths certified stylists in Plano, TX have attended the most intensive and effective training which has been recognized as the industryâs best in category. No other company requires or offers the in-depth education that Great Lengths does. The education and training prepares stylists for optimum service delivery to clients.

The Great Lengths Difference

The Hair Source: 100% of the hair sourced for Great Lengths is from the Temples of India. This is the finest source of virgin hair available in the marketplace that is most compatible with Caucasian and European hair textures.

The benefit of this GL patented process goes beyond the Great Lengths hair quality, it makes Great Lengths International the only Company that can factually state that there is no negative Eco impact from our production process. This point becomes magnified when compared to the significant negative eco impact created by all hair processing facilities, of which the overwhelming majority are located in China and Indonesia where there are no effective regulatory agencies to monitor such production.

The Great Lengths Synthesized Keratin Bond: In 1992, Great Lengths International developed and patented the first pre-tipped, synthesized keratin bond polymer. Because of this ground breaking technology, many if not all extension companies now claim a âkeratin bondâ as their form of attachment. Factually, any form of keratin can be combined with any type of polymer to qualify as a âkeratinâ bond, regardless if it makes any functional difference or benefit in the bond itself. Unfortunately âkeratin bondâ has become more a marketing feature than a functional benefit.

Great Lengths FAQs

What does âkeratin bondâ mean?
In 1992, Great Lengths International created and patented the âSynthesized Keratin Protein Polymerâ bond for the application of hair extensions. In short, the GLI bonds molecular structure mimics that of human hair so that it possesses the same characteristics of human hair.

How much does it cost to get Great Lengths?
Great Lengths Service cost can vary greatly from client to client because each is truly a custom service. There are also many Great Lengths application options to be considered, such as lengthening, full volumizing, zonal volumizing, dimensional color work or special needs applications. For the most accurate answer, based upon the state of your natural hair and desired result, contact Vivien Lee at 214-682-8882

Will it damage my hair?
When applied and maintained properly, the application will not damage your hair. The skill level of the stylists is crucial for a damage free application and this is why Great Lengths Certified Stylists are the most sought after by extension clients worldwide. Great Lengths USA has the most rigid requirements for certification in the industry. The Great Lengths mandatory certification course is on average 3 times longer than any other extension brand in the professional market. Further, there are only a handful of extension brands that even require education as most companies position their training as an option, but not necessary. In other cases, there are companies whose training consists of nothing more than a 20 minute how-to video or online âcertificationâ, where the trainee has no hands-on learning experience or the eyes of a seasoned hair extension educator to evaluate their work and correct where necessary.

The key to a successful, damage free application lies in the details of the application. There is no âcookie cutterâ, âone size fits allâ application technique, as each client has different hair conditions and desired results that must be considered. Great Lengths Certified Stylists are the most highly trained in the industry. There is no close second best.

This is one of the reasons that Great Lengths, year after year, receives such honors as Stylists Choice Award and âProfessionals Choice Awardâ from the beauty industryâs leading trade media, such as American Salon Magazine and behindthechair.com.

How long does it last?
We recommend removal every 3 to 5 months, depending upon the type of application performed (i.e. lengthening, volumzing, etc), the state/condition of the clients natural hair, and their lifestyle.

Methods of Application

Great Lengths’ method is unique: no other system treats your hair in such a gentle way because Great Lengths has put an end to gluing, knotting and welding. Our modulation technique is a revolutionary system; an extremely durable yet gentle bonding attaches Great Lengths hair to your own hair.

3200 Thermal System[GL 3200] The Original. The system that has become the standard by which all other extension systems are judged has put extension services into the mainstream! This still unrivaled system produces results simply not possible with any other system. The Great Lengths 3200 applicator tong is heated on one side. The temperature, which is approximately the same temperature as the lowest setting on a standard curling iron, is used to soften the Great Lengths bond so it can be molded to your natural hair. Unlike other systems, where glue guns and wax melting pots are used, the 3200 applicator allows for a very clean and precise application. The result is undetectable attachments that are brushable, durable and, most importantly, non-damaging to your natural strands.
Ultrasonic 5000[GL 5000] The Next Level. The Great Lengths Ultrasonic 5000 â Cold Fusion technology uses no heat. Whereas the original Great Lengths 3200 Thermal method utilizes heat to soften the bond so the bond can be molded around the group of natural strands that the bond is attaching to, the Ultrasonic 5000 Cold Fusion method utilizes ultrasonic wave. This wave or âvibrationâ action generates heat within the bond and this allows the bond to surround each individual strand within the group of natural strands the bond is being attached to. This added bonding security allows the stylist to mold the bond attachments into âflatâ bond formation without compromising the bond âsealâ to the clientâs hair. Of course, traditional âroundâ bond formations with the Ultrasonic 5000 are possible too. This gives the stylist more application options to truly customize their Great Lengths Services to each clientâs specific need and desired result.

Great Lengths Extension Care

Do not shampoo for two days after your Great Lengths application.

Great Lengths recommends that you return to your Certified Great Lengths Extensionist approximately two weeks after your application. This follow-up visit allows you Extensionist to inspect the application to ensure that your Great Lengths application result is performing as expected.

When shampooing, always wash your hair with your head back, not tilted forward. Never dry with a scrubbing action, instead wrap a towel to absorb the excess moisture. When allowing your hair to âair dry,â Great Lengths recommends that the attachment sites be dried with a blow dryer to prevent the bonds from remaining wet for an extended period of time.

Always use the Great Lengths Anti-tap Formula after every wet treatment. Mix one line (as indicated on the bottle) to 8 ounces of water in a spray bottle. The Anti-tap Formula is designed to neutralize irregularities in your water source and/or to protect the keratin bond polymers from chlorine, saltwater and other solutions not compatible with a proper pH.

To prevent premature bond breakdown always saturate your hair with water and apply Great Lengths Anti-tap Formula prior to swimming, exercising, using a sauna or any activity that creates moisture in your hair for an extended period of time. Immediately after such activities, shampoo thoroughly, condition, apply the Anti-tap Formula and blow-dry the attachment sites (bonds).

Brush Great Lengths three times a day with the recommended Great Lengths brush. Unlike many extension systems, regular and thorough brushing is recommended for Great Lengths extensions. Beginning at the nape, brush row by row, scalp to ends. Always pull Great Lengths into a softly held ponytail while sleeping or any activity that has your hair blowing in the wind. These important brushing and steps will prevent tangling at the attachment sites.

Styling options for Great Lengths are virtually limitless. However, there are a few precautions you will want to take. Blow-drying and use of curling irons, flat irons and hot rollers may be used but heat must be kept at an adequate distance for 1.5 inches from the attachment site (bond).

Some extension loss is normal throughout the life of your Great Lengths application. The average person experiences natural hair loss of 100 to 150 hairs a day. A full-head Great Lengths application covers approximately one-third of the head. After some time you can expect to see a small quantity of your hair that has shed naturally yet is still attached to the bond. This is normal and should not be interpreted as hair that has been pulled out of the scalp by the extensions. Daily brushing as instructed above will void those loose hairs from tangling or matting at the attachment site.

Many hairstylists were limited in their creative ideas due to a lack of body. With hair thickening this is no longer the case. Hair can be added selectively, easily and effectively. Whether it’s for your dream hairstyle or because you have little or thin hair for whatever reason. GL Apps are a blessing for women with sparse hair. Just add a few sections in the right place to give your hair volume. Quick and easy – just see the wonderful effect even partial thickening can have.

I've been going to Vivien's Vogue Hair Salon since the beginning of my college years. Now 7 years later, I still only go to her for my hair needs, be it full color, high/low lights, extensions, keratin treatment, to simple cut, shampoo and style. I love how she styles my hair so much that I literally would rather let my hair grow out like weed and birdnest than have anyone else do my hair. She's honest and though will accommodate any hair style request, she will tell you if it actually suits your hair quality or not, so I trust her input. Her techniques in hair extensions are superb! My latest extension and color matching looks awesome to the point that people think they're my actual natural hair (oh I wish). You won't be disappointed with her service. Be realistic in your expectations, you walk out with beautiful hair, now it's up to you to maintain it if you're skillful... If like me you're not, then it's imperative to keep her phone number handy for the hair rescue; I'm just very glad that Vivien from Vogue Hair Extensions Salon in Frisco Texas is a Great Lengths Platinum Certified Salon. My hair is safe ❤️❤️❤️

THE BEST!!! Vivien's expertise as both a Great Lengths Platinum Stylist and talent as a master colorist makes her the absolute best in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. She really takes the time to explain the difference between one type of hair extension over another, and customizes styles to meet both the aesthetic and budgetary needs of her clients. She truly invests in her clients, and, in turn, is worth investing in on a long-term basis. When Vivien puts in my Great Lengths extensions, they last six months or more, whereas when other other stylists have done them they only last half as long and don't look nearly as good! Her years of training, coupled with two decades of experience make her the owner of the premier Great Lengths Platinum Salon in the metroplex, hands down. I highly recommend her to everyone whenever I am complimented on my hair, which is quite often! Her ability to perfectly match the color of my hair with the extensions, and style it in the most flattering manner, makes me look and feel at least 10 years younger! The atmosphere of her salon is relaxing and luxurious. Vivien does everything from shampooing to styling, giving me one-on one attention, unlike the crowded, snobby salons throughout this area. I feel pampered and spoiled after a visit to Vivien!

I came to Vivien crying because I had an ugly haircut and I was supposed to be at an award ceremony the next week. My hair was so short and I was extremely upset. I googled hair extensions and her name came up. I went to her and she fixed my hair to the point that people can't even tell that I have hair extensions in my hair. I had one friend ask me to show her the extension because she didn't believe it. I highly recommend her.

I decided to take a dive and change my look. I've wanted long hair since I was a kid, but it just wouldn't grow out. When I called for an appointment, Vivien took care of me right away. She corrected my color and added tons of length and volume. It's gorgeous. It made me look and feel younger, and people can't stop commenting about how petty my hair is. I would highly recommend treating yourself to some gorgeousness from Vivien!

Ladies,
I am going through hormonal changes and my fine hair has thinned out so much. My color was a mess. It was ashy, faded, and the wrong color for highlights for me. It made me look tired and older. Vivien color corrected my hair on the first try! Vogue Hair Extensions Salon is a Premier Platinum Certified Partner with Great Lengths. Vivien is amazing and is also a Master Color Specialist. My hair has a warm tone now and it exactly matches the color. I look 15 years younger, and have come back to life!! Vivien is a true professional and you will look amazing after seeing her! She did exactly what I asked for with the extensions and color. I love my hair now!! She has a convenient location and is in a private, boutique salon that is so beautiful! I highly recommend Vivien.

I've been getting my haircut and color with Vivien since 2002. She's the best in color! And my daughter had hair extension (Great Length) for a year with Vivien and with great care her own natural hair was 100% healthier than it ever was before extensions! I'll admit I tried going to other hair salons because of gift cards from friends and was disappointed every time and had to come back in tears to have Vivien fix the mistakes other hair salons did to my hair. I wouldn't trust anybody else with my hair. She has had extensive training with Toni & Guy and Great Hair Length and continues training with both, I know I'm in good hands.
