We offer high quality natural extensions guaranteeing natural wave, fullness, lustre and longevity. We use only the best quality human hair and make sure that whatever style you choose, your hair will look naturally yours.

Live True London hair salons work closely with our luxury suppliers. After your free consultation with one of our stylists on your hair extension requirements, we will order your extensions and have you back in the salon chair within a couple days for application. We also offer aftercare advice and services to ensure you make the most out of your hair extensions and take care of your natural hair.

CONSULTATION

We offer a free consultation to all clients. Sit down with one of our stylists and have them assess your hair to provide advice on the type and amount of hair extensions required to achieve the look you are after. Be sure to discuss how you wear your hair daily and how often you use styling tools.

If you decide to do service, a deposit is required to be paid after your consultation.

ON THE DAY OF APPLICATION

We will show you the hair extensions you have ordered and that we have coloured to your specifications. We either colour the extensions before your appointment (to match your natural colour) or on the day if you are having a colour service alongside your extensions service.  We will then wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo to remove any excess product off your hair. It is then time for you to sit back and relax while application takes place.

Depending on your hair, the hair extensions ordered and the quantity, your service can take between 2-8 hours.

AFTERCARE

We want to ensure that your extensions look fresh and stay in good condition for as long as possible and prevent any damage to your natural hair.

  • Use a soft brush when brushing your hair and brush your hair gently so you do not damage or break the bonds or tape
  • Never comb your hair backwards. This will prevent damage to the extensions and the mattifying of your hair
  • Brush over your nano-bond extensions to prevent hair mattifying at the roots
  • Separate the hair between your roots and bonds to prevent your natural hair mattifying
  • Loosely tie your hair up when sleeping or playing sports etc.
  • Use hair products formulated for hair extensions otherwise use other products but avoid contact with the hair extensions
  • Ensure your heated styling tools don’t come into contact with the bonds or tape part of the hair extensions as this will cause them to melt
  • Wait 24 hours to wash your hair after your extensions have been applied
  • Avoid using shampoos containing moisturisers and oils
  • Brush your hair before shampooing and wash gently to avoid tangling your hair
  • Always wash your hair standing upright and never in the bath upside down, to avoid the excess weight pulling at your extensions and the root of your hair
  • Always have a hair stylist remove your hair extensions to prevent damage to your natural hair

HAIR EXTENSIONS FOR LENGTH  

Do you need to add length to your locks? Hair extensions allow you to achieve and experiment with longer locks.

“I experimented with a Pixie cut, but found that my hair took longer to grow out than I had expected.  I turned to my trusted hair guru, Paco, for some advice. We settled on extensions to add length back to my locks, and together we chose a colour that would match my natural roots and blend in seamlessly as my hair grew. It was an overnight transformation and so perfectly crafted that no one ever believed my fabulous hair had a little secret to it.” – Claudia, Putney Client

HAIR EXTENSIONS FOR VOLUME

Struggling with thinning hair! Dream of thick, lustrous locks? Hair extensions are typically known for adding length to one’s hair, but they are also popular among Live True clients to adding volume and thickness to shorter hairstyles.

“Extensions = magic! Long or short, they make me feel complete and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made and will never regret. I started off with long hair extensions and after a year I decided to cut my hair and have a bob, but have keep in my extensions for more volume. They make my hair look thick and healthy. The quality of the extensions are great, as I have been using the same hair for one year and am I really pleased. What makes me keep having the tape hair extensions is the fact that it doesn’t ruin my hair and it gives me an easy and glamorous look!” – Paula, Vauxhall Client

HAIR EXTENSIONS FOR HAIR COLOUR

Vivid hair colour hair extensions and curly blow dry by Paco at Live True London Hair Salon Vauxhall

“I have always liked to change my hair and experiment with new colours and styles. Zen hair extensions brought out new pastel shades and I fell in love with the pastel lilac colour as soon as I saw it. Wanting to add length and colour to my hair, I had Paco at Vauxhall change my hair colour to this vibrant lilac and add tape hair extensions to match this shade and provide me with length. I hadn’t used tape hair extensions before, but I strongly recommend them as they are comfortable and easier to maintain. I’m already thinking of what colour to do next and Zen hair extensions have given me the ability to do this, especially with their new pastel shades!” – Melisa, Vauxhall Client

TYPES OF HAIR EXTENSIONS OFFERED AT LIVE TRUE LONDON

We understand our clients have different needs when it comes to their hair. We offer tape and micro-bond hair extensions to our clients to cater to these specific needs. Whether you need to add length to your hair, volume to your shorter locks, or experiment with vivid hair colour – we are able to cater to your requirements.

TAPE HAIR EXTENSIONS

Hair is pre-taped with a medical grade gel adhesive which can be worn for 6-8 weeks. Stylists position the client’s natural hair in between two pieces of tape and press together for a secure and comfortable fit. This double-sided adhesive seamlessly attaches to the hair – no heat or glue required.

The taped hair extensions lie seamlessly flat against the hair and are extremely versatile and easily removable. As the hair extensions are applied close the roots, damaged and knotting at the roots is limited with this method.

Tape hair extensions can be removed by your stylist, which means you can alternate between long and short hair by simply popping into the salon, so you can achieve maximum use.

When you are not wearing your hair extensions, these will be cleaned and packed by the salon for you to store at home until you decided to put them in again.

These extensions are charged per piece of hair, enabling the client to control their look as well as their budget.

BONDS HAIR EXTENSIONS

Pre-bonded tips are one of the most popular methods used by hair extension professionals today. These hair extensions stay in the hair for several months and grow out with your natural hair. They can be rotated as the hair grows out and ideally last for up to 3 months.

Nano bonds are ultra-thin and extremely flat. They are practically undetectable and allow for the hair to naturally lay flat against the scalp. As the hair is seamlessly and comfortably integrated into your own, it is a discreet method of adding volume, length or texture to your hair.

For those clients with thin or extremely damaged hair, comfort points bonding possesses a special ergonomic shape, which provides perfect wearing comfort and an amazingly soft and natural look.
