Great Lengths Hair Extensions
At Aerea Salon we believe that one of the most important aspects of hair extensions is the quality of the hair used. That is the reason why we choose to use the award winning Great Lengths Hair Extensions for our clientele who are in need of a beauty transformation.
The origin of this virgin hair comes from the Temples of India, where Great Lengths sources and processes the hair themselves. Indian hair matches the widest range of hair textures and is rarely chemically treated, therefore making them the best hair type to be used for hair extensions.
Great Lengths prohibits the use of harsh coloring and lightening agents during their coloring process to ensure superior quality of their hair. That's in addition to extensive training and education of the Great Lenghts certified extension specialists in order to guarantee the consistency of each and every one of their client’s experience. With over 50 base colours to choose from, there is bound to be a shade that works flawlessly with you. Great Lengths certified stylists have attended the most intensive and effective training which has been recognized as the industry’s best in category. No other company requires or offers the in-depth education that Great Lengths does. The education and training prepares stylists for optimum service delivery to clients.
In as early as 1992, Great Lengths International developed and patented the first pre-tipped, synthesized keratin bond polymer. The GL Synthesized Keratin Bond molecular structure is specifically designed to resemble the molecular structure of human hair. This development gives the Great Lengths bond functionality that cannont be found in other hair bonding compounds that are available. It means the Great Lengths bond has the ability to expand and contract with human hair: i.e when the hair is washed or gets wet the hair shaft expands and when it dries it contracts. Bonds that are unable to function this way will soon begin to shed the extensions and ultimately slide off the client’s natural hair completely because the bond is being stretched with no capacity to contract each time the client’s natural hair expands and contracts. This is a Great Lengths exclusive feature. The extensions are virtually impossible to detect and offer tremendous versatility.
While receiving your hair makeover, rest assured that the hair you purchased is from a company that is devoted to sourcing hair ethically and is doing their part in supporting local communities in India by lending a hand in developing temples, orphanages, medical services, and other charitable causes. Great Lengths is one of the top rated hair extension companies on the market today, So it was only fitting that it was our #1 choice for our clients.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "Keratin bond”, what is it?
A. In as early as 1992, Great Lengths International created and patented the “Synthesized Keratin Protein Polymer” bond as a method for applying hair extensions. In summary, the GLI bonds molecular structure resembles that of human hair resulting in and possessing the same characteristics of human hair.
Q. What is the cost of getting Great Lengths?

That includes full volumizing, zonal volumizing, legthening, dimensional color work or any other specific applications. For a more precise and accurate answer depending on the state of your natural hair and desired look, schedule a consultation with Liz, our hair extensions specialist.
Q. Do hair extensions damage my hair?
A. The application will not damage your hair but applying and maintaining it is crucial. The high level of expertise of your stylist is important for a damage free application and it is the main reason Great Lengths Certified Stylists are higly respected by extension clients around the world. Great Lengths USA has the most strict policies for certifying stylists in the industry. The courses, which are mandatory, require on average 3 times longer than any other professional extension brand in the market. No need to say more when only few extension brands require education as most companies have the training optional, and not mandatory. In some instances, there are companies whose training consists of an hour how-to video online for professionals. Although that's perfectly fine in the .com era the trainee just lacks the hands-on learning experience or the eyes of a seasoned hair extension educator to evaluate their work and correct where necessary.

In other cases, there are companies whose training consists of nothing more than a 20 minute how-to video or online “certification”, where the trainee has no hands-on learning experience or the eyes of a seasoned hair extension educator to evaluate their work and correct where necessary.
The most important aspect for a successful and damage free application always lies in the details of the application. There is one size fits all application technique that works for everyone, as each client's hair conditions and desired results play a role.
Great Lengths Certified Stylists are among, if not the most trained in the industry and it is one of the reasons that Great Lengths, repeatedly receives praises such as “Stylists Choice Award” and “Professionals Choice Award” from the beauty industry’s leading trade media, such as American Salon Magazine and behindthechair.com.

Tape Hair Extensions can be described as an exciting and innovative hair extension method that results in a beautiful and natural look avoiding stress and damage to your hair or countless hours of your time sitting in the hair salon chair. AEREA Salon is leading the industry in NYC for tape hair extensions. This specific method uses 100% human hair and the use of heat,beads, knots, glue, wefts, braiding or weaving is not required. These hair extensions are easily removed with a simple removal solution and the hair is left with minimal to no damage or breakage. Tape extensions are the most seamless, natural and comfortable extensions on the market. They are affordable and there is no tangling, knotting or matting. At AEREA Salon, our experts in tape-in hair extensions will consult with you on the most appropriate style, color and length for your hair. Prices may vary depending on thickness, volume and length desired and will be assesed during your consultation. Maintaining your extensions is NECCESARY every 6-8 weeks to keep the condition of your in tact and most importantly the condition of your natural hair. Re-applying includes removing, re-taping, cleaning and re-applying the extensions.
Hair extensions are known for having a reputation as a high-maintenance accessory better reserved for stars frequenting the red carpets. Having worked with a lot of different types throughout the years, tape hair extensions will simply give you longer, thicker, shinier hair. Here are few reasons why you should try them:
1. They look and feel natural!
Tape-in extensions will resemble your own natural hair, and there is proof. Customers who've been wearing extensions for years have friends and colleagues who don't believe them when they’re told. When the tape is placed on the hair, it’s so comfortable that most customers often forget that they even have extensions until they put it up into a new, thick and voluptuous ponytail. Keeping in mind that all of us have different types of hair, matching density, thickness, texture and color of hair extensions with your own hair is essential in creating a natural looking, full head of hair. This is the reason why our extension specialists recommend professional application.
When looking for extensions, whether you’re looking to enhance volume, length or texture, always opt for 100 percent human hair, either European virgin or Remy. This is crucial because natural hair has the hair cuticle intact and laying in the same direction, meaning the extensions act just like your natural hair would.
2. Applying and removing is easy!
Applying a full head of tape in extensions usually takes no longer than two hours - the average time for any type of hair service. The extension hair is bonded to highly resilient hair tape. After removing the protective layer of the tapes which reveals the adhesive, a section of your hair is placed in between them.
When it comes to removal of tape in extensions, the process is even quicker than applying them. The bond tape is soaked in a safe and special formulated solution which loosens the adhesive making the extension strip slip right off. The solution is then removed from your natural hair with a few simple shampoos. As hair grows, the extension bonds grow further away from the root which make it more likely to twist and tangle. It is because of this that it is recommended to remove and reapply extensions every eight to ten weeks.
3. They're easy to care for.
Washing, blow-drying, flat ironing, curling, braiding—you can do that AND MORE to your new extensions, just like you would with your natural hair. Just like natural hair, extensions are most fragile when wet. Before combing your hair, it is easier to detangle it by blowdrying the roots and bonds. This prevents tugging on the new bonds of hair. Our stylists also recommend sleeping with hair in a loose braid - it not only prevents tangling but also results in beautiful and simple waves. Many customers also say that extension hair usually holds hairstyles better than their natural hair.
4. They don't cause damage.
We’ve all heard of many stories of celebrities or people who end up with breakage and hair loss due to extensions. However, if applied correctly and treated with care, tape-in extensions do not threaten the overall health of your natural hair. Some people say that when trying to grow out their natural hair, tape-in hair extensions help with the process without causing damage. As the natural hair grows, the tape-in extensions do nothing but grow with the hair they are attached to causing little to no damage. The only warning we have is that extensions are addicting! Our customers love being able to switch from a short bob to long, red-carpet-worthy waves
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Are tape-in hair extensions Real Human Hair?
A. Tape hair extensions are 100% remy human hair which means the hair cuticle is intact and the hair is directed in the same way to prevent the hair from getting tangled and matted.
Q. Do tape hair extensions last forever?
A. Tape hair extensions unfortunately cannot last forever but will last at least 8-10 weeks. That will depend on how fast your hair grows, lifestyle, heat exposure, etc., but the good news is that the hair can be re-used up to 3 times.
Q. Are custom colors available?
A. Of course, as there are various colors available that can be mixed together and create many different color combinations.
Q. Straighten, wave or simply blow dry! Can I do all this to my hair extensions?
A. Tape hair extensions are totally fine when subjected to all of the above. However, when exposed to extensive styling heat the condition of the hair will decrease so you might need to order new hair sooner than expected. Caution: Direct heat on the bonds/ tape tabs should be avoided in order to not compromise the longevity of the extensions.
Q. Is it ok to use any type of products in the hair?
A. Your new hair can be treated just as your normal hair. Sulfate free shampoo are great to prevent the extension hair color from fading. Conditioners are fine for the mid shaft and ends but should be avoided near the bonds. Products containing alcohol and essential oils should be avoided as well near or around the bonds.
Q. Can I color my roots while the extensions are still in the hair?
A. Absolutely, however please refer to an experienced hair colorist to ensure the integrity of the bonds while retouching you hair color.
