What kind of extensions does TBM offer? We currently offer tape weft extensions by HAIRTALK USA the inventor and leading brand of tape weft hair.

Who offers extensions at TBM? Our founder and Master stylist Bethany Askew is our double certified HAIRTALK extension artist with over 8 years of experience with the product and specializing in corrective hair extension placement.

How long do the extensions last?

A reset is required every 6 to 10 weeks varying on the client’s hair growth, extension placement and color service needs. This maintenance service takes between 60 - 75 minutes and can be booked at the same time as a color service.

Can I reuse the hair?

Yes, with proper home care and salon maintenance it is possible to reset the hair up to 3 additional times. After 3 additional uses, new hair would need to be ordered and applied at the next reset.

Where does the hair come from?

Hairtalk sources their hair from all over the world but the majority comes from India. Our exclusive manufacturing warehouse processes hair for only Hairtalk and its west coast sister brand Hotheads to maintain the up most quality and consistency.

Is it human hair?

Our hair is 100% Remy human hair. What does that mean? Remy means that the cuticle is intact and all facing the same direction to minimize matting, tangling and frizz. Our fantasy color hair is a blend of 50% temperature safe synthetic and 50% Remy human hair. Bright colors typically have drastic fading within one to two shampoos and this blend allows the colors to remain vibrant.

Can you color it?

Hairtalk manufactures over 30 natural colors and 9 fantasy shades. With rooted, color melt options that can be mixed and blended to create over 500 different custom shades. Your perfect custom blend and length will be created during your extension consultation and ordered just for you.

Can you iron, curl or blow-dry the hair?

Yes! All heat processes are okay just as you would style your own natural hair. It is important to avoid concentrated heat applied to the weft as it can make the adhesive tacky and could leave the extension unable to be reset. Fantasy & Pastel colors are made from a temperature safe synthetic blend that can be heat styled up to 250°F/ 121°C.

What products can be used in the hair?

We recommend that clients use the Olaplex product line that we carry here at the salon. Olaplex bond-repairing shampoo helps the color treated extension hair stay healthy, hydrated and is safe for the tape weft. Heavy conditioners should not to be applied at the scalp, or on the adhesive bands, but rather from mid shaft to end. Avoid products containing alcohol, oil or ethanol as these ingredients can cause damage to the hair and tape weft.

Can roots be retouched while the extensions are in the hair?

Yes, roots can be retouched with the extensions installed, but keep in mind, chemicals in the hair can compromise the adhesive bands and reduce the resets you can get from the hair set. For this reason it is recommended that roots be done between applications during a extension reset.

What lengths are available?

Hairtalk comes in the following lengths. A combination of lengths may be used to achieve some looks when adding considerable length.

13” / 33 cm - Bust length

How many packs does it take to do a full head?

Our Mini Amoré, corrective extension service includes 1-2 packs. Fully Lush includes 2-4 packs and our Lavishly Long includes 2 - 4 packs. Sometimes more hair is needed for clients with above average hair thickness to ensure a blend that looks natural.

Can I swim, exercise or go in the sauna?

We recommend applying and leaving in Olaplex #5 Conditioner prior to swimming. This nourishes the hair discourages it from absorbing harmful elements, such as chlorine and minerals. Hair tangles when dirt and sweat build up so hair should be worn up or in a ponytail when exercising or relaxing in a sauna. Be sure to wash hair after working out, as well as brushing before and after exercising.

Keep in mind that exposing extensions to sunscreen, chlorine and or salt water may cause discoloration and void the manufacturer warranty.
