The What’s What of Fusion Extension Installation Tools

The What’s What of Fusion Extension Installation Tools

Kera-Link hair extensions–otherwise known as fusion hair extensions–are an enduring client favorite. Although the extensions themselves are sturdy and long-lasting, the installation process is easy, speedy, and efficient with the right tools in hand. So if you’re not offering this service in your salon yet, it’s time to get on it! And if you are, read on to make sure you know the what’s what of fusion hair extension tools–there are some new additions you won’t want to miss!

Cordless Melting Connector

As an upgrade to our classic Melting Connector, the Cordless Melting Connector enables you to move freely around your installation area, so you can focus on those fusion hair extension placements instead of wrestling with cords.

Connector Belt

Store your heated Cordless Melting Connector in the chic and heat-safe silicone Connector Belt while you work. The Connector Belt sits comfortably and snugly at your waist to free up your hands for rolling those fresh fusion bonds. It is available in pink or black color varieties.

Velcro Hair Grippers

Achieve the perfect part line with Velcro Hair Grippers! All you have to do is smooth down stray hairs with one hand and lay down the Velcro Hair Gripper with the other, fastening those hairs in place. Makes for clean, pain-free fusion extension attachments!

Keratin Bond Cutters

For those of you who like to customize your fusion bonds, Keratin Bond Cutters are a must-have. They enable you to tailor the size of the fusion extension attachment to the client’s hair–a versatile technique we call Micro Bonding. Simply cut the keratin bond parallel to the hair shaft (without snipping all the way through!), then tear the remaining corner of the bond with your hands to separate the strand into two parts. These Small fusion extensions allow you to install in the more exposed parts of the client’s hair–like the hairline or horseshoe–and to achieve delicate end results.

Keratin Cleaning Kit

Complete your fusion extension installation with a thorough tool cleanup using the Keratin Cleaning Kit. Simply spritz the Keratin Cleaning Solution onto the Microfiber Cloth and rub over dirty spots on your Melting Connector or other tools (make sure that all tools are off and cool!). Once keratin residue is removed, wash the solution off with soap and water. Also includes a Melting Connector storage bag!

Pick up these tools at the Donna Bella online store today! You can also get the fundamental fusion hair extension tools in the Donna Bella Kera-Link Starter Kit. Read more about our Starter Kits in this blog.

 

A Donna Bella Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is only a couple of days away, and many of us are likely getting ready to travel back home in order to be with friends and family for the holiday. Even though there’s a lot to be thankful for, sometimes it’s hard not to let the stress of the preparations rain on our gratitude parade. Our advice? Take the time to pamper yourself this Thanksgiving season, because a little self-directed gratitude can make you better able to share your appreciation for others, too! Here are a couple of ways you can treat yourself right now.

Deep Breaths

Breath is something we almost always take for granted, but it feels so good to take a couple of moments and really focus on breathing fully and deeply. It’s like pressing a reset button on your body, and you’ll return to your day feeling calm and revitalized–a much better outlook for tackling the holidays!

Full-Body Stretches

If you’re like most people in North America, you’re carrying stress and tension in your body 24/7, and the only reason why you don’t notice it is because you’ve gotten used to it. Think about your jaw for a second. Is it relaxed, or is it clenched? How about your forehead? Your shoulders? A full-body stretch routine is heavenly, and you can find a load of them online!

Quality Snuggling

Lasso one of your nearest and dearest–be they a partner, parent, child, sibling, friend, pet…whatever–and engage in some uninterrupted, mutually-beneficial snuggling. Physical contact is a crazy-effective pick-me-up, and comfy too!

Glamming Up

Here at Donna Bella, we firmly believe that the way you dress (and express!) yourself sets the stage for how you feel about yourself. So, by that logic, one great way to pamper yourself right now is to pretty yourself up like you’re about to attend some big event. Of course, you don’t actually need to have an event lined up–personal time can be an event in itself, like a way of demonstrating that you’re always worthy of wearing those fancy earrings or those only-on-occasion shoes. Donna Bella extensions are a great way of installing some glam into your everyday life, and you’ll carry the resulting confidence and satisfaction with you everywhere you go.

Thinking Ahead

Anticipation is super motivating, and we have some big deals coming up that you can start looking forward to right now! Get ready for Donna Bella’s upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday events by downloading our mobile app, subscribing to mobile rewards, and following us on social media so you can be included in all of our social rewards. If you want to be extra prepared, you can also start researching the products you want to purchase in advance, then add them to your shopping cart before the event so you can proceed immediately to checkout once it starts! It’ll be the perfect time to invest in yourself and your business (at a discount!).

We’re ramping up for a whole holiday season of pampering–from Thanksgiving, to Black Friday, and right through to the end of the year (and the beginning of the New Year, too). We hope you’ll check in often and join us for the ride! Thank you for being a Donna Bella reader, customer, and/or stylist! We appreciate you and all that you do!

Best,
The Donna Bella Team

 

Why Do Clients Love Kera-Link?

This month we’re paying our respects to Kera-Link extensions, one of our premier professional hair extension methods. As part of the feature, we wanted to take a special look at the qualities of the product that make it so well-loved. So without further ado, here are a couple of Kera-Link quirks that make people go ker-azy for them.

Traditional and well-regarded

Of all of our hair extension methods, Kera-Link (or the “fusion” method) has been around the longest. When people think of hair extensions, Kera-Link has the most long-standing reputation. It feels familiar, and is one of the most popular options to date.

Durable

Kera-Link/fusion extensions are supremely durable. While other hair extension methods can be just as durable as fusion (lasting, on average, 6-7 weeks before move-up), there is definitely something extra-comforting about the security of an extension fused directly with your hair. This is particularly true when you remember that keratin bonds–the protein tips that are melted under heat against the client’s hair–are made from the same kind of protein as the hair itself, making the extension look and feel basically indistinguishable from the client’s own hair.

Comfortable

One notable benefit of the Kera-Link method is that the bonds are unobtrusive and blend naturally with the client’s hair, so caring for the extensions can be a bit more comfortable than it is for other methods. Unless you’re using an appropriate, hair extension-friendly brush, you’ll find that most brushes snag on the extension bonds of other methods–risking breakage. With Kera-Link, this is less of a concern–though we still recommend that you use the Extension Brush for optimal effect!

Discrete

As we mentioned briefly in the second point above, Kera-Link bonds blend very seamlessly into the client’s natural hair, in part because the bond is composed of the same kind of protein as human hair. It’s also because the attachment point isn’t too bulky, and the keratin bond itself is pre-colored to the appropriate shade to match the client’s hair color. Furthermore, Kera-Link extensions can be customized into smaller units (by snipping the extension bond vertically in half), so that tiny pieces can be applied to tiny sections of the hair. This makes the extension bonds–which are already basically imperceptible when applied–all but totally invisible, and therefore particularly attractive to clients who rank this among their primary concerns.

Whether you’re a Kera-Link wearer, stylist, or none of the above, learning about the different methods that make up the world of hair extensions enables you to make more personalized choices. It also equips you with the information you need to talk about extensions with others–especially those who may still be on the extension fence. We invite you to read more of our method-related blog posts (linked below), for both Kera-Link and our other prominent methods. You may be surprised at what you learn!

How to Make the Most of Your DB Color Ring

Here at Donna Bella, we believe that the DB Color Ring is the #1 most important tool an extensions stylist can have in their toolkit. This is because the Color Ring helps you sell your hair extension services, and it ensures that you select the proper color for your client–two steps that make the whole installation possible. We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again–the consultation is the most critical part of the entire hair extension process, and it can either set you up for satisfaction or start the process on the wrong foot entirely. The DB Color Ring is the consultation tool par excellence, and it can help you do a lot more than just ace your consultations! So if you don’t have one–get one!* And if you do, take a look at all the ways our Color Ring can elevate your business and your customer’s salon experience.

*From October 20 to October 25 (2017), purchase the Donna Bella Color Ring for $20 (instead of $55). Shop now to claim a total of $35 off standard price (no promo code necessary)!

1. Promote Your Practice.

Even before a hair extensions consultation, a Color Ring sitting casually on display on your salon counter can alert your clients to the fact that you offer extension services in the first place. Clients who are unfamiliar with extensions may notice the assortment of silky, beautifully colored strands and feel inspired to ask for additional information, and clients who are familiar with extensions will discern the exceptional quality or recognize the brand. So let your tools promote your business for you!

2. Save Money.

With a Color Ring, you don’t need to have packages of hair extensions available in advance. Introduce your clients to a large variety of extension shades with a tool that you can carry in one hand. You won’t need to splurge on extension pieces that aren’t guaranteed to be used, keeping your inventory manageable and your expenses low, and you’ll see more return on your investment as clients are drawn in by the lure of extensions.

3. Sell Them on the Product.

The Color Ring doesn’t only save you money–it also spares your client from investing blindly in a product that they haven’t seen or handled in advance. You’ll get more customer trust and ultimate buy-in when you can show them upfront what it is that you’re offering. The Donna Bella Color Ring is composed of 54 strands of 100% Human Remy hair–the same hair used in our full extensions–colored exactly to our 54 (and counting!) available shades. This means that the strands look and feel just like the final product.

4. Get on the Same Page.

Sometimes it’s difficult to conduct a color conversation because perceptions of colors differ from person to person. When your client shows up to their color appointment without examples or references, have your Color Ring available as a decoding conversation tool. It will enable you and your client to communicate the colors you’re imagining, and it will allow you to compare the subtle differences in tone and shade present within any single color category.

5. Realize Your Vision.

Whether you’re performing an extension job or not, the Color Ring can be used to visualize color transformations. Have a client who wants to become a brunette but doesn’t know which shade would suit her? Whip out the Color Ring and compare the swatches to her skin tone to achieve the perfect complement, then use the swatch as a guide when testing your color formulation. Who knows? Maybe an unexpected color will catch her eye. Make room in your salon for both inspiration and serendipity, and feel confident in your selections as you do!

6. Predict Color Results.

We always recommend using a test strand when coloring your Hair Extensions with semi or demi permanent dyes. Extra color swatches can be purchased just for this purpose, and for only $2 a piece! You could even prepare a book of pre-colored strands to demonstrate how different extension shades take to different color formulations, for you and your client’s reference.

How do you use your Color Ring to maximum effect? Let us know in the comments below! And if you haven’t gotten a Color Ring yet, get shopping now to take advantage of the current deal!

 

The 1-Minute Makeover

Part of the beauty of custom hair extension color jobs is that most of the work happens when the client isn’t even around. Clients—that means you can have your consultation, decide upon your color, and order your hair, then leave the extension coloring process up to your stylist. Once you return for your installation, the hair will be prepped and ready for you, so all you have to do is sit for awhile before walking off to enjoy your results! In some cases, the process can be even quicker; with non-invasive or temporary hair extension solutions, you can even see a difference within 1 minute of entering the salon. Care to know how? Read on to view your 1-minute makeover options…

Highlights
It only takes a couple of well-placed highlights to brighten up your entire image. With a few crimps and a handful of extensions, you could easily find yourself looking younger, slimmer, and all-around brand new.

A splash of color
Whether you’re supporting a cause or just having a bit of rebellious fun, introducing a band of pink or a stripe of blue to your hair is as simple as adding a single Tape-In or Clip-In. Even with more, you’re looking at a procedure that lasts no longer than a minute, so you can spend your time feeling awesome.

Bangs
Sono by Donna Bella Bangs are installed with 3 simple clips, meaning installation is a breeze every time. Choose from our Side Swept or Straight Across options for a compatible style that’s sure to reform your whole look, then have your stylist color them to your perfect shade.

Solos
Another Sono by Donna Bella option, our Solo is a full head of hair attached to a single microfilm wire which you can pull on or take off in moments, let alone a whole minute. Once it’s on, simply pull the top layer of your natural hair over the wire to disguise, and you’ll be ready to go anywhere looking like a million bucks.

Everything You Need to Know About Mixing & Matching Color for Extensions

Donna Bella’s Color Takeover initiative is bringing you all the resources and education you need to start incorporating cutting-edge color science into your hair extension services. But if you need a snapshot, a sneak peek, or a cheat sheet, look no further. We’ve got all the tips for mixing and matching extension colors right here.

Focus on the consultation.
This is where the coloring magic happens, because it’s where your vision and your client’s vision come into alignment. During the consultation, you and your client should hammer out all the details of the coloring and installation appointments, essentially writing a script that will be enacted later. Make sure that you:
– understand what your client wants in the way of length, volume, permanence, and color change
– know the extent to which the color will be applied (highlights, ombre, overall color, etc.)
– decide upon a coloring method (blending vs. coloring)
– choose the appropriate extension colors and pigments to achieve the desired look
– explain the steps of the procedure—including preparation and aftercare requirements—so your client knows what to expect
– schedule the coloring and installation appointments separately, and order the hair and pigments promptly.

Know your color theory.
There are three distinct color frameworks that hair extension colorists should understand:
1. Donna Bella’s hair extension color classifications
2. the color pigmentation scales of human hair and skin
3. basic color theory (for mixing colors and blending extension strands)

Some key things to remember:
– All colors are derived from the three primary colors—red, yellow, and blue—and these primary colors blend to brown.
– White and black are shades that modify the lightness or darkness of a color.
– Complementary colors (purple + yellow, red + green, orange + blue) have a darkening effect when blended together.
– The temperature or “tone” of a color is described on a scale of warm (yellow, red, orange) to cool (blue, green, purple), and is used as a secondary classification, making “cool red” or “warm blue” sensible descriptions, in that cool red is cooler—or duller—than true red, and warm blue warmer—or brighter—than true blue.
– Human hair and skin color is determined by the relative amounts of two different pigments—eumelanin and pheomelanin—which dictate the lightness or darkness and redness or yellow-ness of the color, respectively.
– The pheomelanin pigmentation (redness or yellow-ness) of a person’s hair generally correlates with that of the person’s skin.
– Blue color particles exist in the superficial layer of the hair shaft, whereas red and yellow color particles exist deeper within the hair shaft, which is why bleached hair tends to appear brassy.

Know when to blend and when to color.
Blending involves dispersing hair extensions of different colors throughout the hair to produce the effect of a particular hue. Coloring involves processing the hair extensions to the desired hue. Blending is ideal for adding dimension (highlights and lowlights) to a client’s hair, or for simulating a match to the client’s natural hair color when an exact match is not available. Coloring is ideal for fashion or fantasy color transformations, or for non-standard color jobs (splashlights, hair art, etc.).

Know your ten cardinal rules for coloring.
These are:
1. Use professional (semi or demi permanent) colors only.
2. Do not lighten or bleach (only darken).
3. Perform a strand test first.
4. Color extensions off of the client’s head (not when installed).
5. Stay within two shades of the original extension color, when possible.
6. Pre-wash extensions with sulfate-free shampoo before coloring them.
7. Always flip extensions to color both sides.
8. When brushing color onto the hair, go in the direction of the hair’s cuticle.
9. Remove all Tape from Tape-In extensions before coloring them.
10. Use only sulfate-free, color-safe shampoo and conditioner on colored hair extensions.

Be aware that extension hair and natural hair process color differently.
There are many factors that contribute to the color processing of a formula. For example, hair health (whether the cuticle layer is intact), hair pigmentation (light vs. dark and red vs. yellow hair), the presence of other particles (chemicals, oil, dirt), etc. Donna Bella extensions are already pre-colored, so the formula may react to the existing pigments and chemicals in unexpected ways. Generally, hair extensions process color more quickly than natural hair.

The fewer steps, the better.
Try to be accurate with your decisions and your color work the first time around so that you don’t need to backpedal and change the hair once you’ve already colored it. Overprocessing hair is the quickest way to destroy it, and the only way to fully protect your client’s investment and your own labor is to follow these tips and just take your time.

Aftercare Guide for Colored Hair Extensions

Custom-colored hair extensions are great for tailoring your extension look to your natural hairstyle—or to your desired color alternative. But alongside that extra benefit comes additional maintenance, necessary to preserve your extension quality and to ensure that your color lasts. It is important to remember that Donna Bella hair extensions are already pre-colored to our existing range of shades, and that any custom color job is an additional process that alters the structure of the hair shaft, predisposing it to damage. Fortunately, Olaplex can be used to help maintain hair integrity, and the resulting color-specific aftercare doesn’t need to be difficult. We’re here to walk you through all the color-related processes, and we have a new and exciting Color Takeover Portal that’ll do just that. For the first time ever, you can find all of Donna Bella’s approved coloring techniques, formulas, and tutorials in a single place that’s easily accessible from your laptop or handheld device. So prepare to be amazed by all the new coloring possibilities!

To start, here are our recommended tips for custom color aftercare—straight from the Color Takeover archives:

1. Don’t wash too frequently. Newly installed and/or recently colored hair extensions should not be washed for 48 hours following the service, and they should be washed as infrequently as possible thereafter. We suggest washing hair no more than once a week, and using dry shampoo between washes to keep your hair fresh.

2. Use the proper products. When you do shower, be sure to use professional grade, sulfate-free, and color-safe products—like those in our Remy Care line—to preserve hair and color quality.

3. Stick to cold water. This may be hard for those of you who enjoy warm (or even hot) showers, but showering with tepid or outright cold water will have a better effect on your hair. The cold temperature causes the cuticle layer of the hair to lay flat against the hair shaft, resulting in less color fade and ultimately shinier hair.

4. Pack on the conditioner. Conditioning treatments are colored hair’s best friend, as they restore any moisture that may be lost due to greater porosity. Invest in a good conditioner, mask, serum, and/or oil, and consider visiting your stylist for monthly revitalizing treatments for beautifully colored hair that’s bouncy and silky, too.

5. Opt for heatless styling. Porous hair is less capable of holding color for long periods of time than non-porous hair, so avoid doing anything that could damage your hair and make it more porous. That includes heat styling. Instead, try overnight styling using buns, curlers, or ribbons. When using heating tools is unavoidable, always always always remember to use a heat protectant prior to applying heat.

6. Schedule your touch-ups and your move-ups for different days. Your hair extensions should only be colored when they are off of your head. This is because attempting to color extensions on your head risks getting color on the bonds (which is not good for the extensions) and leaving your hair with patches of uneven color. To ensure that there’s enough time for the color to process, schedule your move-up to be a couple of days after your removal—or a couple of days after your own hair is colored, if that’s part of your process.

Using Toner on Hair Extensions

When it comes to coloring your hair extensions, there are various methods and tools you can use. Depending on the permanence of the look you want, the shade you’re trying to accomplish, or the shade of your natural hair, different color products and combinations will bring about different results. Within the varying subcategories of custom coloring, we occasionally get asked about using toner on hair extensions.

It’s a good question. Toner—occasionally called gloss—is a semi-permanent color. Unlike semi-permanent color that deposits pigment on top of the hair to alter the shade, toners contain small amounts of ammonia to change the chemical pigment in the hair shaft. While we can never condone bleaching hair extensions outright, toners are OK if you follow these directions. Traditionally, toners are used to alter the brassy tones in hair after it’s been bleached, specifically to eliminate the dreaded “zebra stripes” effect of a harsh dye job. It works by taking different shades of orange and yellow and neutralizing them to blonde, silver or pastel for a softer blend. Toner lasts anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks, depending on how often the client hair, and hair care regimen.

To add toner to newly colored blond hair extensions, simply treat them like you would real hair. Shampoo them, lay them out and color them with the most gentle gloss or toner you can. Never walk away from the extensions because they can tone really fast (though they can also take longer than usual). So it’s really important to keep an eye on them. Sometimes you may even have to tone more than once to get your desired effect.

To dry your newly toned extensions, simply lay them out on a towel to remove excess water from them. This works much more effectively than wringing them out. Once the extensions are dry, brush them out (we recommend using the Donna Bella Hair Extensions Brush) to eliminate flyaways and tangles.

Additional Tips When Toning Hair Extensions
– Always perform a strand test first to ensure it’s not going to turn your extensions a color you hadn’t planned!
Never bleach your extensions. While toners contain trace amounts of ammonia which has lightening effects, bleach and peroxide will dry your extensions out into an irreversible state.
– Treat your extensions as you would your own hair. They’re a product that requires regular maintenance and care to stay looking good, and will last longer when they’re cared for.

That’s all there is to it! For more info, tips, and hair extensions tricks, stay tuned to the Donna Bella Color Takeover Portal.
