Here at the Lauren Ashtyn Collection, hair extensions are our passion and our area of expertise. That is why we created this page to address the frequently asked question, "what are hair extensions?" and share all of our knowledge of hair extensions with you. Here you will find helpful hair extension information on the different types of hair extensions, what to look for in hair extensions, and how hair extensions can improve the lives of women like you.
THE 3 TYPES OF HAIR EXTENSIONS
There are 3 basic types of hair extensions that you can purchase:
- Full Volume Topper – This is the most popular type of hair extension that we sell. It is especially popular among women who are suffering from severe hair loss or thinning hair. These extensions add fullness, body, and length to the hair. Our 12-18” full volume extensions fall to about 2 to 3 inches past the shoulder.
- Light Volume Topper – These extensions are made for women who simply want to add a little extra volume to their hair, or cover up unwanted grey hairs. These extensions are 12-16” in length and have a 3 by 5 inch base which easily clips in around your roots.
- Luxury Length Extension – As the name implies, these extensions are used for adding length to your hair. Here at the Lauren Ashtyn Collection, we offer two different lengths: 10-12” luxury length extensions and 16-18” luxury length extensions. For most women, the 10-12” extensions would fall about 2 to 3 inches past the shoulder, while our 16-18” extensions would extend to the middle of the back. These can be worn in combination with our full volume and root coverage volume extensions.
THE LAUREN ASHTYN DIFFERENCE
We pride ourselves on making quality, lasting hair extensions. There are several reasons that our extensions are the best that you can buy:
- Our hair extensions are durable
- Our hair extensions are handcrafted
- Our hair extensions are easy to clip in and remove
- Our hair extensions do not damage your natural hair
- Our hair extensions are easy to care for
- Our hair extensions are fully customizable
If there’s one thing to know about hair extensions, it's that not all of them are created equal. You can choose between two different types of hair extensions: human hair extensions and synthetic hair extensions.
Compared to synthetic hair extensions, human hair extensions appear and feel much more natural. Human hair extensions have a long lifespan, can be styled like your own hair, can be colored, are simpler to maintain, and the list goes on. Synthetic hair extensions are produced using several artificial materials that can be very stiff, dull, and noticeable. Simply put, if you want gorgeous, luscious, and shiny hair, opt for human hair extensions.
Because we take such great pride in the luxury hair extensions that we produce, our extensions are handcrafted using 100% Remy European human hair. In fact, each strand is triple knotted, by hand, to a micro-mesh base. This process takes up to 45 days to complete.
Here at the Lauren Ashtyn Collection, we believe that quality cannot be rushed. The time we spend making our hair extensions gives you more time to wear them: our hair extensions can last up to 3 years.
Our clip-in hair extensions also offer the utmost convenience, as they are easy to apply and remove. The whole process takes a matter of seconds. Women also appreciate that our extensions do not damage their natural hair, as well as the fact that all of our hair extensions are fully customizable with regard to color, cut, and style. Finally, our hair extensions are easy to care for, and we offer a variety of hair care products on our website.
HOW OUR HAIR EXTENSIONS CAN HELP YOU
What can our hair extensions do for you? Thousands of women have given us feedback about the ways our hair extensions have changed their lives for the better. We call these our “4 Cs”:
- Confidence – Whether you have severe hair loss, thinning hair, or just want hair that looks more stunning, there is no confidence booster like a superb new head of hair.
- Convenience – We are often told that our hair extensions have made women’s lives so much smoother. Since our hair extensions can be applied in a matter of seconds, women find that they have so much more time to get ready in the morning.
- Customization – Women who have bought other hair extensions in the past complain about the lack of options for customization. They want hair extensions that can be colored, cut, and styled to match their unique personality. We are glad to be able to help you express yourself.
- Courtesy – When you buy our hair extensions, you not only get a great product; you get a great service. We have customer service agents who can answer any of your questions. We also post frequent tutorial articles and videos. Not only that, but we make yearly tours, so that we can meet our customers face-to-face. Service does not get any more committed than this.
HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS
While the question "What are hair extensions" is a common one, another question we get asked most often is, “How do I care for my hair extensions?” We are glad to answer this question and share all of our expertise about hair extensions. We have many helpful resources that can point women just like you in the right direction.
For one thing, we are happy to provide free online consultations regarding hair extension care. Many women find these consultations to be an absolute lifesaver.
Just like your natural hair, caring for hair extensions requires the routine use of nourishing products, such as shampoos, conditioners, and oils. When it comes to washing your hair, we strongly recommend investing in products that don't contain sulfate or alcohol. We actually sell these products on our website, so that you can easily find all of the haircare products you need in one place. As with the hair extensions that we sell, these products are all of the finest quality.
To increase the lifespan of your extensions, follow these expert tips:
- Gently wash your extensions and keep washing to a minimum
- Brush your extensions with care
- Never sleep in wet hair extensions
- Minimize heat damage and always use a heat protectant
- Store your hair extensions in a cool and dry place away from sunlight
HOW TO STYLE YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS
As we mentioned before, our hair extensions are fully customizable with regard to style. Women often ask us how they can best style their luxury extensions. If you are wondering what styles to rock for your new extensions, we would definitely recommend that you take a look at our video tutorials.
In these tutorials, we offer many helpful tips for styling your hair extensions. For example, we recently posted a video that demonstrates the “braided updo” style. We also posted a video explaining how to cut your hair extensions. If you are looking for creative new cuts and styles for your fully customizable hair extensions, our video tutorials are a great place to start.
PAYING FOR YOUR HAIR EXTENSIONS
Luxury hair extensions are a wonderful investment (an investment in you!) and we like to help women make this necessary investment in whatever way we can. That is why we offer affordable payment plans on our hair extensions—as well as all of our other products. As a convenience to you, we provide multiple payment plan options: Affirm or ShopPay Payments. These allow you to pay for your order over time, interest free!
CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLOR
All of our hair extensions – from our full volume extensions and our light volume root coverage extensions to our length extensions – come in a variety of colors. One of the first steps of your purchase will be choosing the color that is right for you. Choosing your hair extension's color is easy thanks to the range of choices the Lauren Ashtyn Collection offers. Our selection of hair extension colors is truly unique.
Popular colors include “Midnight,” “Amber,” and “Summer.” There are many colors to choose from. And remember, you can always color your hair extensions after purchase. Your color options are truly limitless.
This is one of the many things that set our hair extensions apart from other hair extensions that you will find. We believe that no one should be locked into a single color or style for their hair extensions.
HAIR EXTENSIONS AND HAIR LOSS
We know that many of our customers turn to us because they are suffering from thinning hair or hair loss. To those women, we would like to say that we know how devastating this condition can be and that we are on your side. This is part of the reason that we make our hair extensions: to help women reclaim their old look, and then some.
Our full-volume hair extensions are perfect for adding substantial body to thinning hair. We know that hair loss and thinning hair can happen to women at any age, which is why we are here to help. Our website also has several articles and tutorial videos about hair loss and hair extension information that are intended to help women who are dealing with thinning hair or hair loss.
We’ve created our hair extensions to help women feel confident in their own skin. By adding maximum length and volume, our hair extensions can increase one’s self-image and help women feel more like themselves.
