Luna Method Hair Extensions

Hello Friends! 

It's been a minute but sometimes mom life takes over and I don't get to do some of the things that I love like sharing all my new favorites with you guys! I recently met with Courtney at Wolfe and Mane and she transformed my hair with a new method of hand-tied extensions called The Luna Method.

If you've been following me for a while you know that I have had tape in extensions for almost 8 years! Before that I used clip-ins, I mean I was basically the poster child for if you can't grow your hair buy it!  

I recently showed you guys my results on Instagram and you all had so many questions so I wanted to put those all in one place for you to reference!

Obviously, the #1 Question I got was COST! 
This is a tough one to answer because this method isn't a one size fits all type approach. Courtney takes the time to customize each experience to make sure you get exactly what you are looking to get from your extensions. If you want a customized quote specific to your hair you can use the survey below! 

How do these extensions compare to tape-ins?
Since I've had tape in extensions for so long I feel like I am well equipped to answer this. Tape-ins were always my go-to option because honestly, I didn't know any other types of extensions existed. I typically wore 2 packs of Hair Talk brand extensions and with purchase, color and install it was around $750. These extensions need to be moved up every 6-8 weeks depending on how quick your hair grew and last anywhere from 6-12 months depending on how "rough" you are on them. I can say I've definitely gotten 12 months out of mine before! 

Okay now, let's talk about the differences. The photo on the left is my tape-in extensions grown out. As you can see they are very noticeable when pulling your hair up. One of the things I didn't like about tape-ins is the fact that I couldn't wear my hair up or in a braid without my extensions showing. This brings me to one of my first pros regarding the Luna Method. You can get these positioned so you can wear a ponytail or your hair half up! I also love that I don't feel insecure about people being able to see my tracks from the back of my head because they are so well hidden! EVERY piece of hair is custom colored to match the your hair to ensure the most seamless blend possible. If you want to go out on a windy day... No problem, no one will notice your extensions.

How Long Do Luna Method Extensions Last?
The hand-tied hair they use can be died to match your hair and is another reason they are so blendable. These extensions can last from 6-12 months depending on the care, heat and number of washes. Again I am a beliver in getting the most out of your money so I always get 9-12 months out of my hair before having to buy new hair. 

How Often Do You Get Them Moved Up?
Depending on how fast your hair grows every 6 weeks is recommended. After your initial appointment having them installed your move-up appointment should only take 2 hours max. 

Will This Method Damage My Hair?
Absolutely Not! The method is fast, comfortable and extremely gentle on the hair and uses no heat, glue or tape. All points of contact are concealed and you will have no visible beads.

Can You Wash, Brush, and Blowdry Your Hair?
Yes! This is another pro vs. tape-ins. Tape-ins sometimes get loose if you brush them while wet so you want to make sure they are always dried after washing. With the Luna Method you can let your hair air dry or blow-dry and style and also brush away! These will not pull loose as long as you are using a flexible bristle brush (think wet brush). 

Why is Luna Different Than Other Hand Tied Methods? 
It has 8-20 points of contact for each guest. It is seamless with no beads exposed and no discomfort. It is wonderful for all types of textures and densities! This is crucial for guests with fine hair because no matter how you flip up fine hair things show and when there are no beads exposed it becomes seamless with the hair. 

Where Are These Placed?
This all depends on the guest's hairline. head shape, and density. Each guest receives a slightly different placement, as well as their desired result specified before placement. The perfect placement will hide the rows and create maximum coverage for the guest.
