Frequently Asked Questions
Will the Hair Extensions Damage My Natural Hair?
This is the most common question we are asked and the answer is no, they will not damage your hair when they are fitted and cared for correctly. At our salon they will be fitted correctly, but some responsibility does lie with the client to care for them well. The aftercare is simple and easy to follow but it is also very important. We will discuss aftercare in detail at your consultation. If the aftercare is not followed properly then damage can occur. The pictures below were taken of Sarah's natural hair before 4 fittings over 4 years, the natural hair will do remarkably well if the aftercare advice is followed.

What Is Cuticle Correct "Remy" Hair?
Curicle correct remy hair means the hair cuticles have not been removed during production and all the hairs are flowing in the same direction, root to tip. This ensures the hair will not become matted or tangled as most human hair products do. Non-remy hair is otherwise known as "fallen" hair, it has not been cut from a donor but naturally shed throgh daily brushing and sold on to factories at very low prices. This is what 99% of human hair extensions in the shops are made from.
Can I Dye My Hair With Too Perfect Extensions In?
You should use a professional as it is important not to get hair colour on the attachment points.
I've Had Extensions Before, They Didn't Last And Were Uncomfortable. I Want Long Hair But I Need A Better Result Than Last Time.
Many extensionists, even those who are highly skilled, often compromise on the quality of hair used and on the aftercare and product advice. At Too Perfect you will not have these problems. Our technicians are experts in the fitting, maintenance, aftercare and removal of your extensions, they will be virtually unnoticeable and will last for months if you follow a few simple steps. You can ask for your technician's mobile number so you can get in touch easily and at any time. It is important to follow your extensionists' advice while wearing the extensions to avoid any problems and leave your hair in perfect condition after removal.
How Long Will My Too Perfect Extensions Last?
Your Too Perfect hair extensions will need to be repositioned between 6-12 weeks. The hair itself will last for longer, with most of our clients using the same hair for 1-3 years.
Why Do They Need To Be Repositioned?
The nature of extensions means that they will put extra weight on your hair, it not advisable to wear any sort of hair extensions for longer than 6-12 without repositioning. Exactly how many weeks will be determined by the strength and thickness of your own hair.
Are The Extensions Suitable For Holidays?
While most holidays will be fine, hot climates, sea water, swimming pools and hotel water systems can be bad for the hair and cause discolouration. If you are going somewhere very hot, going with brand new hair may not be recommended.
Am I Suitable For A Half Head Of Extensions?
If you are looking for extra volume rather than lots of extra length, or if your hair is fine and you only want to add a small amount of length then you could be suitable for a half head of extensions.
Why Do I Have To Pay A Deposit?
Fitting extensions is a bespoke service, and each technician is limited to the amount of clients they can see during the day. Late cancellations and no shows have a very negative impact on other clients and the salon as a whole. We ask for a deposit at the time of booking to ensure cancellations are given in good time. Deposits are essential for every appointment. Your deposit will be taken off your final bill. **PLEASE NOTE: We require 4 full days notice from the time of your appointment to cancel and refund or transfer deposits to another date.**
