Want to learn more about hair extensions?

If you’re like me, you’ll often see a celebrity on TV or in a magazine and think enviously, “How is her hair so long and thick?” More than likely, it’s because she has extensions.

It used to be that extensions were pretty much for people coping with thinning or extremely fine hair. They also used to be a hassle to put in and difficult to make look natural. Fortunately, neither is the case today. Extensions now play a big role in the fashion and beauty industries and are therefore much more mainstream than they were a decade ago. Even better, they look and feel more natural than they used to, and there are many different types available.

The most common types of extensions women use today are the following:

  1. Clip-in extensions: These are an instant solution and great for special occasions or a night out on the town.
  2. Sew-in extensions: As the name implies, these have a stronger hold, and are therefore more commonly used on women with ethnic or courser hair
  3. Fusion extensions: These are a more long-term solution and involve attaching the extensions to strands of hair with small beads of solidified keratin
  4. Weft extensions: These have a small track a few inches long, to which the extension is attached; the wefts are then attached to your hair with a medical-grade adhesive.

At trü salon, we now carry the VoMor Hair Extension System, a type of weft extension offered exclusively at Aveda Salons. The name is derived from the company’s tagline: Volume & More. Their mission is to give women a sense of power, confidence, and beauty by allowing them to add volume, thickness, and/or color to their hair.

There are many significant benefits to VoMor extensions over other types, but a few that factored into our decision to carry them include:

  • Flexibility: add as much or as little as you need to create just the look you want–
  • Versatility: VoMor extensions come in 30 beautiful colors that seamlessly match the Aveda color wheel
  • Quality: VoMor extensions are made from Remy human hair, the highest grade of real hair available, which means that you can style it just as you would your own
  • Integrity:  All the hair that is used to make VoMor extensions is ethically sourced and manufactured
  • Availability: We carry VoMor extensions right in the salon so there’s no waiting weeks for an order to come in; you get immediate gratification
  • Longevity: Each VoMor application lasts 6-8 weeks, at which point your stylist will remove, recondition, and replace the extensions; they’ll last through 2 or 3 uses—even up to a full year!
