New Year, New Look

new look new year

As much as we hear, “New year, new me” you would think people would act on it more. I mean, who wouldn’t want a complete makeover for 2016? If you started the year with short hair, why not go long? If you’ve always coveted a hair color, why not go for it using Donna Bella Hair? Let’s face it, changing hair color is easier than going to the gym to shed those new year resolution pounds or getting a new attitude (insert smirk here). Not saying you shouldn’t do all of the above, but at least you can get started on a head to toe transformation— literally.

The number one reason for hair extensions is to add length. However, you don’t have to go super long, you’ll be surprised at how much difference a couple of added inches will do. Donna Bella Hair extensions range from 12 inches to 22 inches. If you’re not into length as much as you’re into volume, adding a pack or two will give you just what you need. But you can enjoy best of both worlds with a full head of hair extensions.

OR…

Ditch your old monochromatic color for one of the biggest color trends right now like an ombre, balayage, or silver hair. There are 8 ombre colors to choose from and with the wide selection of colors, you can create your own custom balayage with lowlights and highlights. Donna Bella Hair makes it easier to add these colors without processing your hair through chemicals, keeping your natural hair safe and healthy.

Ready for your big 2016 makeover? Let us know how we can help or visit a Donna Bella Hair Certified stylist near you. Most consultations are free and there is no pressure. Make sure to hashtag #donnabellahair with your new makeover so we can feature your new Donna Bella Hair makeover on our social media pages!

 

When Is the Blue Bottle Okay For Tape?

blue for tape

A commonly asked question regarding the removal of Donna Bella Tape-In hair extensions goes a little something like this, “Can I use the blue bottle remover to take the Tape-In wefts off?” Although we highly and strongly recommend the use of the clear bottle for the removal of Donna Bella’s Tape-In extensions, we’ll probably let you slide with using the blue bottle for rare occasions, like let’s say removing just a weft or two…

Let’s say your client is having an issue with a couple of wefts and need them taken out for a move-up. Using the oil remover is going to be more gentle on the hair. You do, however, need to be super careful and avoid getting it on the other wefts— or they too will start slipping. If you don’t trust yourself to be precise, we’ll go ahead and give you the green light to use the blue bottle. Since it’s not oil based like the clear bottle, be very careful when pulling the tape apart, that you don’t pull the natural hair with it. The blue bottle is alcohol-based so the tape won’t slide off easy. Once the wefts are out, you will need to remove the old tape from both the natural hair and the weft. And because it’s alcohol based, you won’t need to worry about clarifying the hair from the oil-based remover. Continue with the replacement as normal, making sure the hair is completely dry from the remover.

**We don’t suggest using the blue bottle for a full head removal. Doing so is running a high risk in breaking your client’s natural hair but a weft or two is fine.
