How much does hair enhancement cost?
Prices generally range between $399.99 and $650. This price includes the hair, the service, and the finished
look. The total cost is determined by the type, quality, length, and in some cases, the color of your new hair. The
actual cost is determined and discussed during your consultation.
How long will my hair enhancement last?
Your enhancements should last from three to four months in any texture of hair with proper mantenance and
up-keep. They will need to be tightened as your hair grows, about every four to six weeks, or whenever you need
a relaxer or color touch-up due to new growth. It is very important to have regularly scheduled maintenance
appointments so we can monitor, and check the condition of you own hair and scalp.
Does the procedure hurt?
No. There is no pain. Some may experience temporary discomfort during the tracking process. However this
discomfort should cease once the tracking is finised in that area. If discomfort should persist you should say so
immediately so the problem can be addressed. Bottom-line, there should be no pain.
Are hair enhancements uncomfortable?

How long does it take to have the procedure performed?
For the attachment you will have to sit for approximately 4 to 4.5 for an enhancement. Balding and thinning
solutions can take up to 9 hours, depending on which procedure and other specifics.
(You will be given an approximate finish time at the consultation.).
If you take medication for anxiety or ADHD you should definitely take your medications before coming for your
“Attachment Day” appointment. If you color or relax your own hair you should allow 24 to 48 hours after the
chemical service for your scalp to recover; or take a couple of aspirin, Tylenol etc., before the procedure.
However; if you are a true “glamour girl,” you should only experience the joy of having the hair you’ve always
wanted. A tightening takes about one hour. For relaxers, wait at least 24 to 48 hours for the scalp to recover from the chemical process.
When should I color my hair: before or after?
Color your hair before your consultation. Be sure to wait three days for your color to oxidize before your consultation appointment.
