I offer several different types of amazing hair extension methods to suit everyone and their lifestyle. At your consultation we can go over the desired look and your hair goals. This will help us determine the type of extensions that would be best suited for you. Your extensions will be fitted at my home studio in Barnsley - South Yorkshire
Benefits of hair extensions:
Instant length and volume
Versatility - Hair extensions offer versatility in styling options, allowing you to experiment with different styles and looks
Natural appearance - Premium quality hair extensions can blend seamlessly with your natural hair, providing an undetectable look.
Hair protection: Hair extensions can act as a protective layer for natural hair, reducing damage from heat styling and environmental factors
Confidence boost: Hair extensions can 100% boost your confidence by giving you the hair you have always dreamed of. Also as we get older our hair naturally becomes finer. Hormones also take over and we thin in places that can leave you feeling down about your hair & appearance. Even a few extensions at the sides to fill can make a huge difference.
Not one type fits all: There are so many options to choose from. We can even do a hybrid service which means for e.g tapes could be a great solution at the back of the head but then the hair is a little finer at the front therefore we can also fit a few nano bonds in too. Every client is different and we can choose a solution that best fits you.
Clip in hair extensions: These are an amazing temporary solution. For your wedding or just a night out. Don't want the commitment then these are a great way to get the look you want and then take them out at the end of the night.
I offer a free colour matching service for you to get the extensions you want.
Yes It really is an investment!
Yes it’s true! Permanent hair extensions can cost anywhere between £200 to £1000 so be mindful of your budget.
Having hair extensions isn’t cheap and do you know why? All the hair I use is ethically sourced, Remy, double drawn, human hair. AAAAA+ This in a nutshell means top quality.
You wouldn’t want extensions with cheap looking synthetic hair, that firstly isn’t going to last but will also look like you’ve had extensions!
The more natural the hair, the less people will even notice as it looks so real. Also you can get anywhere from to 12 to 18 months lifespan if you take the best care of it. You really do get what you pay for. The biggest investment in any hair extension service is the purchase of the hair and this is where the majority of your budget will lie. Also dependent on your own hair, someone with super fine hair will need a fraction of the hair compared with someone with super thick hair so be prepared to pay more.
What methods do you offer?
Tape-in hair extensions - Maintenance 6-8 weeks
These are a type of semi-permanent hair extension method that involves attaching wefts of hair to the natural hair using adhesive tape. The extensions are made of high-quality human hair and come in pre-taped sections that are applied close to the scalp.
The benefits of tape-in hair extensions for clients include:
Quick and easy application: Tape-in extensions can be applied relatively quickly compared to other methods. The wefts of hair are already pre-taped, making the application process efficient and time-saving.
Natural and seamless blend: When applied correctly, tape-in extensions provide a natural and seamless blend with the natural hair. The wefts lie flat against the scalp and are virtually undetectable, giving a natural appearance.
Versatility in styling: Clients can style their hair as usual with tape-in extensions. The extensions can be curled, straightened, and styled just like natural hair, allowing for versatility in creating different looks.
Comfortable to wear: Tape-in extensions are lightweight and comfortable to wear. The adhesive tape used to attach the extensions is thin and flexible, ensuring a comfortable fit without causing any discomfort or tension on the scalp.
Long-lasting results: With proper care and maintenance, tape-in extensions can last for several weeks to a few months. The adhesive tape used is strong and durable, providing a secure attachment that withstands regular washing and styling.
Easy maintenance: Tape-in extensions require minimal maintenance. Clients can wash, brush, and style their hair as usual without any extra precautions. It is important to avoid using oil-based hair products near the tape area to prevent the adhesive from weakening.
Reusable: Tape-in extensions can be reused multiple times, making them a cost-effective option in the long run. After the initial application, the extensions can be removed, re-taped, and reinstalled, allowing for multiple uses.
Suitable for different hair types: Tape-in extensions are suitable for various hair types, including fine and thin hair. The extensions can add volume, length, and thickness to the natural hair, regardless of its texture or density.
Nano Bonds - Maintenance 10-12 weeks
Nano bond extensions are a type of hair extension that uses a small, lightweight, and virtually undetectable bond to attach the extensions to the natural hair. The bond is made of a tiny metal ring, usually made of aluminium or copper, which is lined with a silicone lining. This lining helps to protect the natural hair and provides a secure and comfortable attachment.
The benefits of nano bond extensions include:
Natural and discreet: Nano bond extensions are designed to be extremely small and lightweight, making them virtually undetectable in the hair. The bonds are placed close to the scalp, allowing for a natural and seamless blend with the natural hair.
Comfortable to wear: The small size of the nano bonds makes them comfortable to wear. They do not cause any discomfort or tension on the scalp, allowing for a pain-free experience.
Long-lasting: Nano bond extensions are known for their durability and longevity. When properly applied and maintained, they can last for several weeks before needing to be removed and reinstalled.
Versatile styling options: With nano bond extensions, clients have the freedom to style their hair in various ways. The extensions can be curled, straightened, and styled just like natural hair, providing versatility in creating different looks.
Minimal damage to natural hair: Nano bond extensions are gentle on the natural hair. The small size of the bonds and the silicone lining help to minimise damage and prevent breakage. When applied and removed correctly by a professional, the natural hair remains healthy and undamaged.
Easy maintenance: Nano bond extensions require minimal maintenance. Clients can wash, brush, and style their hair as usual without any extra precautions. Regular maintenance appointments are recommended to ensure the extensions stay in good condition.
Suitable for all hair types: Nano bond extensions can be applied to all hair types, including fine and thin hair. The small size of the bonds allows for a secure attachment without causing any strain on the natural hair.
It's important to note that the application of any bond extensions should be done by a professional hair extension specialist to ensure proper placement and minimise any potential damage to the natural hair. Regular maintenance and care are also essential to keep the extensions looking and feeling their best.
Ultra Tips - Maintenance 10-12 weeks
This is a much newer method brought to you exclusively by Remi Cachet. Ultra Tips lay completely flat with the natural flow of the hair. These are reusable and with no need to retip. The bonds are unaffected by heat or product damage and are fitted in place using the uniquely shaped ultra lock. A small oval shaped bond that creates a flatter bond on the head.
LA Weave - Maintenance 7-8 weeks
Also known as a braidless weave or a micro weave, is a method of attaching hair extensions to the natural hair using micro rings or beads. Unlike traditional sew-in weaves that involve braiding the natural hair, the LA weave uses small sections of the natural hair to create a foundation for attaching the extensions.
The benefits of an LA weave for clients include:
Minimal damage to natural hair: The LA weave method is considered to be less damaging to the natural hair compared to traditional sew-in weaves. Since there is no braiding involved, there is less tension and stress on the natural hair, reducing the risk of breakage or hair loss.
Quick and easy application: The LA weave method is relatively quick to apply compared to other hair extension techniques. The extensions are attached using small micro rings or beads, which are clamped securely onto the natural hair. This allows for a faster application process, saving both time and effort for the client.
Versatility in styling: With an LA weave, clients have the freedom to style their hair in various ways. The extensions can be curled, straightened, and styled just like natural hair, providing versatility in creating different looks.
Natural and discreet: When applied correctly, an LA weave can provide a natural and seamless blend with the natural hair. The extensions are attached close to the scalp, making them less visible and more discreet.
Long-lasting results: The LA weave method offers long-lasting results. When properly applied and maintained, the extensions can last for several weeks to a few months before needing to be repositioned or reinstalled.
Suitable for different hair types: The LA weave method is suitable for various hair types, including fine and thin hair. The extensions can add volume, length, and thickness to the natural hair, regardless of its texture or density. This method is very popular with clients who have a lot of hair.
Easy maintenance: LA weave extensions require minimal maintenance. Clients can wash, brush, and style their hair as usual without any extra precautions.
I-tip or stick tip - Maintenance 10-12 weeks
Also known as micro bead or micro ring extensions, are a type of semi-permanent hair extension method. They consist of small individual strands of hair with a small metal or plastic loop at the top, which is attached to the natural hair using a micro bead or ring.
The benefits of I-tip hair extensions for clients include:
Natural and seamless blend: When applied correctly, I-tip extensions provide a natural and seamless blend with the natural hair. The individual strands are attached close to the scalp, allowing for a natural and undetectable look.
No heat or glue required: Unlike other methods such as fusion or tape-in extensions, I-tip extensions do not require heat or glue for attachment. This can be beneficial for clients who prefer a more natural and chemical-free option.
Comfortable to wear: I-tip extensions are lightweight and comfortable to wear. The metal or plastic loops used for attachment are small and discreet, ensuring a comfortable fit without causing any discomfort or tension on the scalp.
Easy maintenance: I-tip extensions require minimal maintenance. Clients can wash, brush, and style their hair as usual without any extra precautions. Regular maintenance appointments are recommended to ensure the extensions stay in good condition.
Reusable: I-tip extensions can be reused multiple times, making them a cost-effective option in the long run. After the initial application, the extensions can be removed, repositioned, and reinstalled, allowing for multiple uses.
Which stockists do you work with?
This is so important! When working with extensions you can tell the quality of cheap and expensive hair. I Have worked with a number of brands over the years but now I’m working with what I class as the best. There are options to suit every budget but I like to think of the quality of hair as Platinum & Gold.

Can you tell me the price of your hair extensions?
Each quote is tailored to every individual client offering a unique service just for you. It is impossible to just give a price as there are several factors to consider.
What length do you require, if any? How much volume? What colour, dark, light, balayage? Do you have a specific budget? Do you need only half a head rather than a full head?
Then we get down to things like what’s best for your lifestyle?
Extensions are a huge commitment and not to be taken lightly. They need love and attention but following the recommended after care will see you get the very best from your extensions.
All hair is paid for upfront by the client after consultation and prior to fitting. In addition to the purchase of the hair I have a standard price for fitting and maintenance which also includes cutting and styling:
*Prices differ due to the length of the appointment. This being from 30 minutes to 3hrs plus for thick hair
At your hair extensions consultation appointment, we will go through the aftercare and also colour match your hair so your own hair will blend in perfectly with your extensions.
Consultation appointments typically take 15-20 minutes and are carried out at my home studio in Barnsley.
Please note that the hair will be ordered specially for you and usually takes around 2-3 days to arrive. Please allow enough time and book your appointments as early as possible
If you are happy and wish to go ahead with a fitting, an upfront payment is required by bank transfer in order to purchase the hair and the balance will be due at your appointment which can be paid by either bank transfer or cash.
Please note that it is a strict payment system, so no monies are paid after a service has taken place. If you are not paying for your balance in cash at your fitting appointment you must do it via bank transfer whilst at your fitting appointment.
It is so important to follow the recommended after care advice for your hair extensions. I can order products for you ready to take home after your fitting, or I can give you suggestions to take with you. Lots of supermarket shampoos and conditioners are full of sulphates and sodium chloride which are damaging and drying to your hair.
I will not be held responsible for not following the recommended hair care advice. This will all be discussed with you at your consultation.
