Extensions

Is your hair too short for your taste?  Our stylists offer hair extensions to quickly lengthen your hair.  Our extensions are carefully customized for you to ensure beautiful, natural-looking results.  We invite you to call Gotham Beauty to schedule your appointment with our professional stylists and learn more about hair extension in New York, New York.

When you receive a hair extension, our stylists will use natural or synthetic hair to lengthen your current hair.  There are several types of extensions that we may use, depending on your preference and hair type:

  • Fusion (or bonded extensions) – Individual keratin-tipped strands are fused to your natural hair using specialized heat technology.
  • Tape-in extensions – Wefts of hair are attached to small sections of your natural hair using double-sided tape.
  • Weave (or sew-in) extensions – Wefts of hair are woven into your natural hair seamlessly using thread.

Fusion and tape-in extensions can be used for almost any hair texture, but weaves are best suited for curly, kinky hair.  Fusion extensions are the most time-consuming of these options, but also have the longest results, taking up to 3 hours to complete, but lasting 3-4 months.  Tape-in extensions are a much quicker treatment, taking about an hour to complete, but require maintenance appointments every 6-8 weeks.  Weave extensions can be completed in 1-2 hours, and last up to 3 months.  Tape-in and weave extensions can be re-used and re-applied, but fusion extensions are a one-time treatment – once the extensions have been removed, you cannot reattach them, and will need to purchase new hair if you receive another treatment.

Our stylists will work with you to determine the best type of hair extension for your needs.  Please contact our office today to learn more about hair extensions and schedule your consultation.
