How To Achieve the Hottest Color Trends Using Hair Extensions

DB_HottestColorTrends_Blog

Hair extensions are incredibly versatile. They allow you to extend your length, increase your volume, add highlights, lowlights, or color splashes, and even update your overall color! But while you can achieve a wide range of color looks using hair extensions alone, including custom coloring in your service opens up a whole new world of possibilities. That’s why Donna Bella Hair has partnered up with Joico Color Intensities and Framar International to bring you the biggest hair extensions/color collaboration on the web. It’s called the Color Takeover initiative, and it’s designed to help you combine the art of hair extensions with the science of coloring, right in your own salon. Visit the Color Takeover Portal to browse through tutorials, custom formulations, articles, and an array of other resources that’ll get you started on the path to color mastery. Then read on to see how you can attain some of the hottest current color trends using mixed colors and hair extensions.

Blending

A photo posted by Shea White (@sheadoeshair) on

Our traditional method of updating hair color involves selecting shades from Donna Bella’s available collection, then using the hair extensions alone (with no additional color) to simulate the desired look. For example, though Donna Bella may not offer the exact shade of light brown to match your client’s hair, strands of colors #8, #12, and #22 can be spread strategically throughout the hair to produce the same effect as that single light brown color. This method proves useful for customers seeking dimension, highlights and lowlights, balayages, and even ombres without any color processing, and it can produce truly spectacular results!  

Coloring  

Custom color explores the possibilities outside of Donna Bella’s collection, making any and every color available to clients. Pastel hair, mermaid colors, and vivid emerald hues have been accomplished using this method, and it’s great for more experimental clients and for stylists with a creative eye. You can even use custom coloring to match extensions perfectly to your client’s natural hair color. The possibilities are quite limitless.

Donna Bella’s custom coloring method involves a couple of steps:
- 1 – Prepare color using Joico Color Intensities, our favorite vivid color line that requires no developer to process!
- 2 – Prepare the client’s hair by treating and/or lightening it.
- 3 – Perform a swatch test on a section of your client’s hair to see how it takes to the color. Modify your formulation as needed.
- 4 – Color the client’s hair to the desired level.
- 5 – Perform a swatch test on the hair extensions to see how the extensions take to the color. Make sure the color resembles the client’s new hair color, and modify as needed.
- 6 – Color the extensions (color #60 offers an incredible blank canvas when it comes to custom coloring extensions) to your desired level. Colored Tape-In extensions will need to have the tape replaced following this step.
- 7 – Install the extensions.
Tip: We recommend waiting a couple of days before installing the hair extensions, especially for time-intensive color jobs. Remember, installations should be performed on clean, dry hair, and the coloring process may leave an initial film of color residue on the hair that could interfere with proper bonding. Proceed with caution!
- 8 – Blend and style to finish the look.

Over the next couple of weeks, we’re going to be showing you how to attain popular of-the-moment color looks using each of these methods. Until then, be sure to check out the Color Takeover Portal and ogle at the before & afters there. It won’t be long until you can recreate all those looks yourself!

KeraExtend™ vs. Cream Cleanse™ – Which Do I Choose?

db-blog-dec-2016-choose

If you’ve been following our new Remy Care™ line, you may have noticed that we offer two distinct sets of extension-safe shampoos and conditioners. Dubbed the KeraExtend™ and Cream Cleanse™ sets, these products promise to cleanse and condition your hair and your hair extensions without causing damage or slippage in the process. But there are some notable differences between the two, including different recommended usages. So which shampoo and conditioner pair should you choose for your shower?

KeraExtend™
We recommend the KeraExtend™ Shampoo and Conditioner set for regular use. These products cleanse the hair without stripping it of nutrients, then condition and fortify strands with keratin and 11 botanical extracts. The result is shiny, healthy hair and hair extensions that are easy to maintain.

Cream Cleanse™
Cream Cleanse™ products should be used occasionally for clarifying purposes. This shampoo’s formula is more powerful because it’s designed to remove build-up before installation or move-ups, though still gentle enough to preserve scalp health. Cream Cleanse™ Conditioner reintroduces moisture to the hair via botanical extracts, and can be used to make clarified hair more manageable prior to installation (though it should only be used from mid-shaft to ends on this occasion).

In short, you should use KeraExtend™ for your regular showering regimen, and Cream Cleanse™ for monthly or bi-monthly clarifying, only. If your hair is particularly oily, you may benefit from more frequent Cream Cleanse™ use, though you should supplement the process with other moisturizing Remy Care™ products, like the KeraExtend™ Mask or Serum. But when in doubt, consult your stylist!

For more information about our Remy Care™ line, check out this video. And, as always, if you have questions or comments, leave them in the space below!

How to Become a Flat-Tip Pro

db-blog-dec-2016-pro

We’ve been talking a great deal about Flat-Tip lately, but you may have noticed that we don’t have any Flat-Tip designated educational programs. There’s a reason for that: since Flat-Tip is applied in the same way as I-Link extensions, the existing I-Link educational program works for learning Flat-Tip, too! So if you’re on a mission to become a Flat-Tip pro, here’s what you should do…

Pick up an I-Link Kit
Our Hair Extension Kits include all the tools you need to complete an installation, removal, and re-installation for any given method. They make great starter kits for practicing hair extension stylists, and continue to be useful even after you go pro. The I-Link kit comes stocked with a Loop Tool, Hair Extension Tool, Color Ring, Quick Pick, Hair Extension Brush, beads, and I-Link Practice Hair, so you can start practicing your beaded installation technique as soon as you receive it. Remember: beaded installation applies to both I-Link and Flat-Tip. If you want, you can even order a pack of Flat-Tip extensions to test out Flat-Tip spacing (which may differ slightly from I-Link’s).

Enroll in our I-Link course
Learn how to install both I-Link and Flat-Tip extensions by completing our I-Link Online Education course! You’ll learn everything from installation to removal and maintenance, and you’ll even get pro tips for masterful consultations. Once you’re done, you can apply for I-Link/Flat-Tip certification, which makes you a verified Donna Bella stylist eligible for Certified Rewards. There’s lots of good stuff to look forward to!

Pursue additional education
We have plenty of advanced education opportunities for Donna Bella stylists, including Trade Show classes and Pro Series events. Though we don’t currently offer Flat-Tip-specific classes, you can take these opportunities to ask questions about the method and develop your beaded technique. This is where our most engaged stylists come together to hone their craft, build community, and receive guidance from our master educators! Veteran attendees may even apply to participate in Trade Show installations as part of our Elite team. The potential for growth is endless, and we’re here to help you every step of the way.

Have you worked with Flat-Tip extensions before? Or do you plan on trying it out sometime soon? You can get in touch with other Flat-Tip enthusiasts today by joining the discussion on our Facebook page! We’ll see you there.

Winter Care for Thirsty Hair

db-blog-dec-2016-thirsty-HAIR

It’s finally December! That means our holiday decorations are coming out, as well as our winter hair care essentials. This year, we’ve revamped our regimen to include some of our lovely, hydrating, sulfate-free Remy Care™ products—and we have to say, our hair has never looked better, despite the weather! Here’s what we’re using, and how:

KeraExtend™ Mask
Masks are the holy grail of winter hair care, as they provide much needed moisture to dried-out locks. But our KeraExtend™ Mask goes a step further. In addition to its hydrating properties, the KeraExtend™ Mask restores elasticity to the hair with plenty of infused keratin proteins, so your hair will be both smooth and bouncy!

To use: After rinsing Donna Bella KeraExtend™ Shampoo from hair, squeeze all excess moisture using towel, then comb liberal amount of KeraExtend™ Mask through hair evenly, focusing on mid-shaft to ends. Gather hair in shower cap or hair claw and leave in for up to 5 minutes. Next, rinse hair thoroughly and style as usual, applying KeraExtend™ Serum if desired.

KeraExtend™ Serum
Like the KeraExtend™ Mask, our KeraExtend™ Serum is formulated with keratin proteins. In the serum, however, these proteins combine with the other ingredients to soften and add shine to the hair. The effect is almost instantaneous, as the serum coats the strand and seals the cuticle for a beautiful, glossy look in seconds!

To use: Apply KeraExtend™ Serum onto slightly damp hair with fingers. Do not apply product onto hair extension bonds or wefts. Spread the Serum onto the bottom half of your hair extensions and work your way downwards, concentrating on tips. Style as usual. Note: can be applied to dry hair in smaller amounts.

Argan Oil
Correct that straw-like, brittle texture that comes along with winter using a pump of Donna Bella’s Argan Oil. This antioxidant-rich oil is a quick-fix for parched hair, adding nutrients and a silky sheen that’ll keep extensions looking dewy throughout the holidays.

To use: Beginning with a small pump, apply evenly to bottom half of extensions, adding more to ends if desired. Do not apply oil to hair extension wefts or bonds. Apply only from mid-length to ends.

 

As with all of our Remy Care™ products, these moisture-packed favorites are sulfate-free, paraben-free, and color-safe, so you can use them on your own hair and hair extensions without issue. Want to get your hands on some of these products? Let us know what you think of the results by submitting a review to our review page. Or wrap them up as a present; Remy Care™ products make great gifts, too!

Who is Flat-Tip Best For?

db-blog-dec-2016-best-for

Sometimes choosing an extension method can be easy—you’re already familiar with the methods, you’ve seen the products, and you know what you want in terms of look and feel. But sometimes it’s not so straightforward. When it comes to new clients—or new hair extension methods, like Flat-Tip—experience and expertise may be lacking, leaving you a bit unsure as to which to choose. That’s where we come in. We’ve shared tons of materials, insights, and tips about each of our extension methods on our Online Education site, YouTube channel, and this blog, because we want every client to be matched with the method that best suits their needs. Today, we’re going to flesh out these resources with some additional information about Flat-Tip, answering once and for all the question, “who is Flat-Tip best for?”

As we’ve mentioned in past blogs and videos, Flat-Tip is a hybrid method that combines the best aspects of our Tape-In and I-Link methods into a single extension. It features the strand-by-strand, beaded installation of I-Link (and amazing 360 degree movement), and the flat-shaped, weft-style comfort and coverage of Tape-In. As such, clients who love I-Link or Tape-In will likely love Flat-Tip, too—and clients who are stuck between I-Link and Tape-In will find comfort in Flat-Tip’s all-encompassing appeal.

Kera-Link clients, who tend to favor the sturdy and stealthy hold of fusion bonds, are the only ones who may not drool over Flat-Tip’s promise—at least initially. However, these clients may benefit from periodic transitions between Kera-Link and Flat-Tip, as Flat-Tip’s non-invasive installation will allow their heat-treated hair to rest.

In general, we recommend Flat-Tip extensions for the following kinds of clients:
- Newer, speculative hair extension clients who have already tried out the Ready-to-Wear line
- Cautious clients who appreciate a forgiving extension method
- Mindful clients who are vigilant about their hair health
- Clients who wish to avoid glues, tape, and heat
- Casual clients who prioritize comfort above all else
- Clients who want a flexible, versatile extension method
- I-Link or Tape-In clients who are looking for a change
- Indecisive clients

Based on that list, Flat-Tip is great for just about anyone! Always remember to hold a thorough consultation session with your client before scheduling the installation, outlining the benefits of each method and seeking their input. When possible, show your client the extensions themselves, or direct them to this blog and our other resources! We’re always here to help.

Hi,
I'm wondering how long the new flat tip extensions would last in the hair? I'm currently using keratin link on my client. She is concerned about how long the flat tip would last. We currently get about 5 months with her keralink. Could we expect to get the same with flat tip? Also can we use them on her whole Head? She has very fine hair and I cut the keralinks in half on her sides and part of the back sections. I'm interested in these for the health of her hair as I feel the keralink are a bit tough on the natural hair...

Finding Your Signature Style

db-blog-Dec-2016-signature

Hair extensions are a great way to experiment with your look, but they’re also perfect for cultivating a “signature” style. Whether you’re preppy, sporty, glamorous, edgy, or down-to-earth, you want your hair to match your lifestyle, your fashion sense, and your attitude, producing that unmistakeable aura that is uniquely you. We’ve written several blog posts in the past aiming to help you uncover your signature hairstyle, covering topics like: how to choose a cut for your face shape and hair texture, where to go for hairstyle tips, and how to choose the perfect Donna Bella extension method for your needs. But that last topic needs some updating, as we’ve introduced a variety of new extension options to our product list. That’s why today we’ll be going over the details of our various extension methods, including their relative benefits for your particular look.

Tape-In
Tape-In is one of our professional (semi-permanent) extension methods, and it is installed by sandwiching sections of the natural hair between two hair extension wefts (or a single weft and a piece of Single Sided Tape, for finer-haired clients). This type of professional extension is the quickest to install, taking only 30-60 minutes, and needs to be moved up every 3-6 weeks. Tape-In extensions can be reused 1-2 times for a total lifespan of about 2-4 months.

People love Tape-In for its easy installation, its natural and comfortable feel, and its exceptionally lightweight, making it great for fine-haired clients, first time extension wearers, and practical, on-the-go women alike. So if you’re interested in permanent length, fullness, or color change, prioritize flexibility and comfort, and/or have fine, thin, sensitive hair, Tape-In may be the option for you.

Watch this video to learn more about Tape-In.

______________________

Kera-Link
Kera-Link is our oldest, longest-lasting professional (semi-permanent) extension method, and it is installed by fusing the extension and natural hair together with melted keratin bonds. This type of extension installs in 2-3 hours, and needs to be moved up every 6-7 weeks. They can be reused 1-3 times for a total lifespan of about 2-4 months.

People love Kera-Link for its durability, its natural 360 degree movement, and its virtually invisible bonds, making it the top pick for experienced extension clients who need a method they can rely on, no matter what. If you are committed to professional extensions, have medium-thick, healthy hair, and want a sturdy, classic extension option, then Kera-Link is your go-to!

Watch this video to learn more about Kera-Link.

______________________

I-Link
I-Link is a professional (semi-permanent) extension method that applies with only beads—no glue, tape, or heat required. This type of extension installs in 1-2 hours, and needs to be moved up every 8-12 weeks. They can be reused 1-3 times for a total lifespan of about 3-6 months.

People love I-Link for its super safe installation, easy removal and readjustment, and natural 360 degree movement, making it a winner among newer and more cautious hair extension clients. If you’re interested in permanent length, volume, and/or color change, but want a flexible, non-invasive method, I-Link is the way to go.

Watch this video to learn more about I-Link.

______________________

Flat-Tip
Flat-Tip is our newest professional (semi-permanent) hair extension method, and it is a hybrid of our Tape-In and I-Link methods. The extension installs with beads—like I-Link—but lays flat against the hair in mini-wefts—like Tape-In. This type of extension installs in 1-2 hours, and needs to be moved up every 8-12 weeks. They can be reused 1-3 times for a total lifespan of about 3-6 months.

People love Flat-Tip for its safe installation (which utilizes no glue, tape, or heat), easy removal and readjustment, natural 360 degree movement, and exceedingly comfortable feel, making it the perfect option for clients who have difficulty choosing between our other professional methods. If you want long-lasting hair extensions and value flexibility, non-invasiveness, and comfort equally, Flat-Tip is your best bet.

Watch this video to learn more about Flat-Tip.

______________________

Clip-In
Clip-In is an at-home (removable) extension method that is clipped to the hair. This type of extension installs in 5-15 minutes, and removes in under 2 minutes. They can be reused as many times as the user sees fit, and typically reach a total lifespan of about 6-12 months.

People love Clip-Ins because they give them options. Since the hair is removable, it can be put in and taken out at the user’s convenience, and used to achieve a range of different, customizable looks. And, unlike other Ready-to-Wear extension options, Clip-In placement is totally up to the client—each set comes with a series of wefts of various sizes that can be used individually or in unison for varying effects. Beyond that, Clip-Ins are loved for their low-maintenance and quick installation time. Choose this method if you’re new to hair extensions, value flexibility and control over your extension placement, enjoy change, and/or have fine hair.

Watch this video to learn more about Clip-In.

______________________

Solo
Solo is another at-home (removable) crown-style extension method that is applied to the hair by pulling the wire around the crown of the head—like a head wrap—and brushing the top layer of natural hair over the wire. This type of extension installs in seconds, and removes in seconds, too. They can be reused as many times as the user sees fit, and typically reach a total lifespan of about 6-12 months.

People love Solos because they’re incomparably easy and super quick to put on. Solo extensions make for basically instantaneous transformations, adding length, thickness, and/or color without applying any weight to the root area of the client’s natural hair. Change-lovers, new extension wearers, and fine or thin-haired clients all choose Solo for its ease and comfort, and its minimal maintenance regimen. If you’re just getting into the world of hair extensions, have fine or thin hair or a sensitive scalp, and/or prefer to have a removable hair extension option, Solo is where it’s at.

Watch this video to learn more about Solo.

______________________

Bangs
Bangs are yet another at-home (removable) type of extension that are not designed to add length or fullness to a head of hair, but rather to add the appearance of bangs to the front of the hair. Our Ready-to-Wear Bangs come in Side Swept and Straight Across style options, and are installed with 3 clips that grip easily and comfortably to the natural hair. This type of extension installs in less than a minute, and removes in under a minute, too. They can be reused as many times as the user sees fit, and typically reach a total lifespan of about 6-12 months.

People love Bangs because they’re a quick and subtle way to revamp their entire look. Bangs have the ability to change the way a person’s face looks, with relatively little change to the appearance of the hair itself. Bangs extensions are also great for quelling the indecision and commitment issues people face when contemplating regular bangs. Rather than cut your hair into a face frame that you’ll later regret, throw on some Bangs extensions that you can simply take off at the end of the day! Choose Bangs extensions if you’re after a new way to complement your current hairstyle.

Watch this video to learn more about Bangs.

How Does Flat-Tip Feel?

db-blog-Nov-2016-feel

Donna Bella’s new Flat-Tip extensions are exceptionally easy-to-use, pairing the best of I-Link and Tape-In installations for a tailored hair extension experience. But how do they feel, exactly, when they’re installed in someone’s hair? Do they feel different? We asked some early adopters for their opinions, and here are the trends we found in their responses:

Comfortable
Flat-Tip extensions are supremely comfortable, even to the point where users forget that they were wearing hair extensions at all. This is because Flat-Tip extensions move easily within the hair and rest flat against the head, making for 24/7 comfort and a natural feel.

Adaptable
The dual nature of Flat-Tip means that these extensions function as both strands and wefts, and are able to adapt seamlessly to any situation. When you’re moving, the hair behaves like a strand, moving fluidly and beautifully with you. When you’re sitting still or lying down, the hair behaves like a weft, laying totally flat and smooth.

Natural
With all their comfort and adaptability, we think it’s safe to say that Flat-Tip extensions behave the same way as your natural hair. They move like your hair, lay like your hair, and—most importantly—they feel like your hair. No wonder our respondents said they forgot they were wearing extensions! Until you look in the mirror and see all that fabulous hair!

Learn more about Flat-Tip by watching this introduction video, then head over to our website to try them out for yourself! They’re available right now, and we’d love to hear what you have to say about them!

What Do You Get When You Cross Tape-In and I-Link?

db-blog-Nov-2016-cross

We’ve got a brand new professional extension method here at Donna Bella, and it’s something of a hybrid. Get to know our brand new Flat-Tip Extensions: half Tape-In, half I-Link.

Flat-Tip extensions feature…

I-Link’s strand-by-strand application
Like I-Link, Flat-Tip is installed in a series of single strands that are held to the natural hair with crimped beads. This means that Flat-Tip maintains the same 360 degree movement that you know and love from I-Link extensions.

Tape-In’s wider surface area
Unlike I-Link, though, the Flat-Tip strand fans out to a weft shape that resembles our Tape-In extensions, making it blend beautifully and effortlessly into your own hair (minus the messy tape!). This allows the Flat-Tip extension to cover a wider surface area than its I-Link counterpart. Plus, Flat-Tip extensions naturally lay flat against the hair for unmatched comfort!

The best of both worlds
As both a strand and a weft, Flat-Tip capitalizes on the best of I-Link and Tape-In extensions while leaving behind their limitations. You won’t need to worry about stringy spacing in your extension application, restricted Tape-In movement, or messy bond removers when it’s time for a move-up appointment. All you need to worry about is taking the perfect “After” shot—and be sure to share it with us when you do!
