Have you ever wondered how some movie stars may be wearing the shortest of hairstyles in one public appearance and, within a few short months, appear with a full mane of luxurious long hair - apparently never having to endure the endless in-between length.
Do they have privileged access to a magic vitamin that causes hair to grow three times faster than anyone else? Where can I get this vitamin?
In truth, there is no magic vitamin but there is the magic of hair extensions.
To learn more about them I visited the lake country of northern Indiana where the only certified Hair Locks technician in Indiana performs her transformations. Jessica Carunchia is located at Je`coles Styling Salon & Day Spa in Angola, IN.
As Jessica explained her craft, I was intrigued with the many uses for hair extensions. The most dramatic use is in restoration procedures such as the instance pictured below.
This young woman had one side of her head shaved as the result of an automobile accident. Rather than wait months or even years to regain the length of her original hairstyle, Jessica was able to install hair extensions.
Beyond the addition of instant length, clients can be given fuller and thicker hair than they can ever experience naturally. The Hair Locks extensions that Jessica uses are human hair and come in textures to match virtually any type of hair. - fine, coarse, way, curly, straight -
Highlights, low lights and ‘fun’ color can be added to natural hair without the worry of chemical damage.
Color choices are endless and can be mixed to produce many custom variations.
- For a full head of extensions expect to sit from 2 1/2 to 4 1/2 hours depending on how thick your hair is.
- 30 minutes are usually required for a color enhancement service such as highlights and lowlights.
- Many clients opt for a few locks of ‘fun' color which takes even less time.
So if you happen to be in northern Indiana, visit Jecoles, located on West Maumee street in Angola. Ask Jessica about the magical transformation she may have in mind for you.
