Sew-In Weave Extensions *$150/ hour
This technique has been around a very long time. I learned how to do this 29 years ago in beauty school. A weave is when a weft of hair is sewn on to a cornrow braid of the client’s hair also known as a track. The placement and size of the tracks depends on the individuals hair, head shape and desired result. No chemicals, glues, plastics, tape or bondings of any kind are used. A weave generally can be worn 11/2 month to 3 months depending on the length of your own hair, how quickly your hair grows and how well you take care of it.
* Please note that the price of this service does not include the purchase of hair. During your consultation we will discuss the end result and style you desire, what color, length, texture and quality of hair will be best for you. Hair is paid in full in advance.

Hairdreams Hair Creations Q&A:
How long does my hair have to be?
The hair should be at least 3-4 inches from the nape of the neck.
How long do they last?
The strands will last 2-6 months—it just depends on the length of your natural hair, how fast it grows and how well they are taken care of.
Do they damage hair?
When taken care of properly, the extensions will not cause any damage to your hair. The heat used to apply the strands isn’t even as hot as a flat iron.
How much do they cost?
It is such a tailor made service—lengths, strand size and the amount of strands put in—that it is not possible to quote without seeing you in person. Consultations take about 30 minutes and are free of charge.
How do I take care of them?
I will go over all of your care instructions. It is easy. At night, it is advised to sleep with your hair loosely braided or in a soft scrunchy to avoid tangling. Excessive water isn’t great on the bonds. Always blow-dry the bonds. Heat sources should be avoided on the bonds: flat irons, hot rollers, curling iron, blow-dryers, steamy hot showers/tubs etc. are all doable—but just be cautious as the bonds can be loosened with heat. You must be careful not to get any alcohol onto the bonds (may be present in scalp creams, mousse, gel, hair spray etc.). Otherwise the bonds may turn white and brittle. Every 4-6 weeks you come back in for a Tidy-Up Cut. During this service your own hair, which has naturally shed but is stuck in the Bonding, is cut at the top in order to avoid matting. Skipping the Tidy-Up Cut can lead to bad tangles and matting.
Can I try them out first?
Absolutely, in fact I suggest it! Come in for a brief appointment and I can put one or two strands in for a small fee so you can see exactly what it’s all about! A minimal fee is charged. I keep a minimal amount of various colors and lengths on hand. Hopefully I have something that can work for you.
Do you have hair on hand?
A minimal amount of various colors and lengths—but keep in mind there are so many different lengths, colors, textures and bond sizes that I almost always special order the hair.
How long does the application take?
It takes anywhere from a half hour for a highlight to 1-3 hours for a full set depending on the individual style desired and method used.
How are they removed?
When your set is ready to come out, you come in the salon for about an hour and a half for a deep conditioning treatment, gentle removal of the bonds and a shampoo and blowout.
Will I lose any strands?
It is completely normal to lose a strand here or there, but you can usually tell if one is ready to come out when you are drying your hair. They don’t generally fall out while riding your bicycle, grocery shopping or at a romantic dinner. The hair extensions shed just like your natural hair.
How do I make the appointment?
At the consultation, we will select length, colors, textures and go over the entire costs of service. If you decide to go ahead and book an appointment, I take a (non-refundable) fifty percent deposit to order the hair and reserve the time slot. If you need to think about it, we keep your information on file so you can call and book when you are ready to do so.
Where are they applied? (Are they on the scalp)?
The bonds are generally placed away from all hair lines so you can still pull your hair back without seeing them. Generally they are done in rows near the neckline for length and some above the ear area. They can also be used in a highlighting placement. They are applied 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch away from the scalp so that lay flat and do not pinch or pull your natural hair.
What are the bonds?
The bonds are a diamond thermoplast, a nylon/polymer blend. They are about the size of a kernel of rice, depending on the density and type of strands we customize for you.
Can I color my hair?
I can do it for you! I recommend my clients only come to me for their coloring service as I know how best to work with the extensions. We don’t usually recommend coloring the extensions as they are treated differently than your hair before they are applied, but they come in every color imaginable so you don’t really need to! The bonds are the same color as the hair, so for example if you want to go dark when you have blond ones in—the bonds with still be blond— you are better off doing a new set!
