Discreet & Natural: Hot Heads Hair Extensions

Screen Shot 2016-08-04 at 1.46.26 PMHave you ever been standing in a crowd or walking across the street and you see beautiful honey golden locks blowing in the wind? How about when you’re at the gym and you see a perfect perky fun full ponytail bouncing up and down with each stride the women in front of you takes? Are you saying, I want hair that looks like that?

In just one afternoon you can go from plain Jane with a cute bob to Beyonce meets disney princess. How? Hotheads Hair Extensions! I am not talking about the extensions you buy from a local retail store. The ones that clip in and might not match your hair perfectly, but you say, “they will do”. I am talking about real natural beautiful thick hair that exactly matches, the color, style, and fullness of your own hair.

Chakras Salon and Spa is one of the only places that offer Hot Head Extensions locally. These extensions have truly changed the way we live. Not only do these extensions offer a unique and extraordinary product and lifestyle however they make it impossible to tell that you’re wearing them! Unlike most current extension brands that you tape in, these are applied with small thin clear adhesive tabs.

They come in 4 different lengths and many different colors! You can shower, brush, curl, style and do whatever else you want to with them in. Just make sure not to apply heat directly to the tab! They last anywhere from three to four months depending on how you treat them. After four months of maintenance and growth come back in and we will retab them! You can usually do this process three or four time before you may need a new set!

Call or come in today! Let the stylist at Chakras Salon help transform your hair and add amazing length and body!
