FAQ’S

What are tape extensions?

Tape extensions are applied using a thin, rectangular bond that is applied using “tape” or “glue” with a rectangular section of your hair. Our extensions specialists are highly trained in applying these hair extensions to ensure that no damage is done to your natural hair.

Will tape extensions damage my natural hair?

At Textur we only supply the highest quality hair extensions, with our stylists personally testing these themselves. The bonds on tape extensions have come a long way from what they used to be, and are currently the preferred method among stylists in Australia. Our staff are highly trained in both the application and removal process, to ensure that no damage is done to your natural hair.

Can I tie my hair up with tape extensions in?

During the application process at Textur, our staff are trained to ask specific questions relating to how you style your hair on a daily basis such as “do you the your hair in a high pony tail?”. Our placement of the hair extensions is then done specifically to the needs of each individual person to ensure you can style your hair as per your every day routine.

How many extensions do I need?

The amount of extensions per person is determined by the length, and thickness of the natural hair and what the client would like to achieve by having extensions, whether it be length, thickness or both. One full head of tape extensions is 40 individual pieces of tape, however someone with naturally thick hair would need between a head and a half to two full heads. This is determined by seeing your hair in person during a free consultation or on the day of your appointment.

Show Pony or Russian?

At Textur we offer a variety of different brands of tape hair extensions, each suitable for a different hair type and to achieve different goals. We appreciate that each girl is different, and every hair goal is different!

FOR EXTRA THICK HAIR

We recommend our Textur Russian 22inch extensions, or Paramount 24inch extensions for the girls aiming for the luscious extra long and thick mermaid hair look. These extensions are longer and double-drawn, meaning they are thicker than average hair extensions. These are suitable for normal and thicker natural hair types, to create the perfect natural blend!

FOR FINER HAIR

For our beautiful girls with the finer or damaged hair types, we recommend using Showpony 20inch extensions. The bonds on the extensions are a tiny 0.5cm, perfect to hide and be able to tie up, while still adding length and added thickness. These bonds are also designed to be gentle on natural hair, making sure we take care of natural hair while still achieving your hair goal!

What are nano bead extensions?

The nano bead is the placement of individual hair extensions strands, secured by a tiny nano ring. They’re considered within the industry to be 90% smaller than the traditional micro ring, making them comfortable to wear, especially for those clients who have fine hair, but also are less detectable.

The benefits of an acrylic nano tip
They are also great for those that have allergies to metals, because they are acrylic they shouldn’t cause an allergic reaction, which in many cases metal nano tips can. Which is amazing news for those that haven’t been able to have hair extensions before due to their metal allergies.

How are nano tip hair extensions fitted?

By taking small individual portions of a client’s hair, nano tip hair extensions are then threaded through a nano ring which is placed and secured onto the clients natural hair by small pliers that clamps the hair extension into place.

How are nano tip hair extensions removed?

Nano tip extensions really are easy to remove, but should only be removed by a fully trained and insured hair extension specialist. Preferably the person who originally fitted the extensions.  As the hair extension is bonded together using a nano ring, a pair of pliers is all you need to squeeze the ring open, to let the extensions slide free.

Are nano tip hair extensions comfortable?

If they’re acrylic and have been fitted correctly then they should be easy to wear and tend to be the most comfortable permanent hair extensions.

A mixture of their minuscule size and flexibility allows for your clients own natural hair and extensions to sit comfortably together. Do bare in mind however, that this factor does vary for each individual.

If your client hasn’t had hair extensions before, then it’s perfectly normal for them to feel odd for the first few days while they adjust to them, even if your client has had them before they too may need to adjust to having fresh hair extensions applied. If however your client is finding their extensions are still feeling uncomfortable after a week or so, then they should book in to see you again so you can talk about it, and take appropriate action, such as loosening them.

Will the nano bead extensions damage my real hairs?

Nano ring hair extensions are not damaging to one’s natural hair when fitted by a trained professional. In actual fact, they are one of the hair extensions methods that are the least damaging.

They do not require heat or glue to secure them, meaning they will be kinder and gentle on the hair. When it’s time to remove them, they are really easy to do so, and won’t require the typical alcohol or acetone based solution rem over, unlike the pre-bonded hair extension method.

Where do you source your nano bead extensions from?

We deal directly with the supplier, she herself lives in Brisbane and her business partner works out of Saint-Petersburg, Russia. It is here where they source the highest quality hair for the nano bead extensions. The nano extensions hair is then transported to Australia where our supplier personally bonds the hair strands herself using specific hair extension bonding tools. (This allows us to have greater control over the weight thickness and length of each set of extensions ,perfect for personalising a custom set created for any client). The hair types that we use in salon vary from Virgin Asian, Russian processed, Indian, & Virgin Russian. Each hair type is significantly different yet equally as beautiful. Inside Russia itself for many years, the Slavic hair collected from donors has never been enough for consumers (Russian girls always love long hair), it also became more expensive and difficult to get and the raw hair sources have been an issue among the hair trades. In recent years, once the hair sources has been established, our supplier rapidly increased the manufacture capacity. Monthly, she supplies 80-100kgs of hair to the market (both Virgin Raw Hair and Russian Processed Hair Extensions). There are factors that contribute to producing amazing quality Hair Extensions: Raw Hair Materials, Bleaching & Coloring Technique, Hand-Craft works…

Caring for your extensions

  • Our extensions are the most gentle on your hair, as no heat is needed during the application process. The bonding is simply done by pressing two pieces of tape extensions firmly around a section of your natural hair

  • Once your extensions are applied, we recommend not wetting or washing your hair for 72 hours to ensure the extensions are bonded, and to avoid having them slip out too soon

  • When tying your hair in a high pony tail or bun, try to use a loose hair tie and avoid doing so in the first week after application

  • When washing your hair, we recommend shampooing twice. Once to lift the dirt off your scalp and hair, and the second to rinse this dirt out. Use conditioner only on your mid-lengths and ends, avoid all contact with the tapes or bonds. 

  • Ensure you blow dry your hair thoroughly after washing to avoid any matting or knotting caused by the glue slipping due to being wet. 

  • Don’t use any shampoos or conditioners with sulphates, keratin, protein or oils in them. If you are unsure, please don’t hesitate to contact us to check whether the product you are using is safe on your hair extensions. 

  • Avoid swimming in pools containing chlorine. Chlorine is extremely drying on extensions and is known to effect the quality of hair extensions. If swimming cannot be avoided, put conditioner on your ends before swimming and wash your hair thoroughly after your swim with the recommended moisturising products. 

  • Use a detangler, or other kind of extensions brush at all times when brushing or styling your hair. These brushes are designed to gently glide through the extensions to ensure they do not pull or tug on your natural hair. Pulling on your extensions too roughly with the incorrect brush may cause damage to your natural hair. 

  • Tape extensions need to be lifted up every 6-8 weeks, if the extensions are left in longer than this it can cause damage on your natural hair. We recommend rebooking your next appointment before leaving the salon to ensure your preferred time and date is available for you. 

  • During the removal process, it is normal to see small quantities of your natural hair coming out. This is due to natural hair loss that occurs every day, however is unable to fall out freely as it is between the bonds of your extensions. This is completely normal and occurs with every person

  • Please do not remove your extensions yourself or have any one else do this for you. Our staff are highly trained in removing extensions in a way that causing no damage. If your extensions are removed by yourself or others, we can not be liable for any damage that may occur

  • Please try and avoid having someone at home or another salon apply your extensions, Textur extension specialists are trained by each supplier specifically to the needs of that brand of extensions. Incorrect application by untrained persons can cause unnecessary damage.
