How do hair extensions work? We get this question all the time. Hair extensions are a versatile and popular way to enhance one's hair length, volume, and style. Hair Extensions work by adding real human hair strands to a person's existing hair, providing a natural and fuller appearance. They are available in various ‘types’, such as clip-in, tape-in, sew-in, fusion, and beaded extensions. Depending on your genetic makeup, lifestyle, and preferences, certain types of hair extensions may be better suited for you. To learn more about specific types of hair extensions and discover which one might be the best fit for you, click on the categories below for detailed information and guidance tailored to your needs. Whether you're looking to achieve a temporary change or a more permanent transformation, understanding how different hair extensions work is the first step toward achieving your desired look. Take our ‘Which Type?’ quiz for a quick answer, or research the different categories using the links below.
Just want to add a little volume to your natural hair? we recommend (depending on your hair type and style) between 25g – 100g.
Looking for added volume and a few more inches in length? We recommend (depending on your hair type and style) between 125g – 175g.
Wanting a full, glamourous look or have a blunt bob cut you want to fill out? We recommend (depending on your hair type and style) between 175g – 250g.

A number of our extension techniques require absolutely NO chemicals for installation; therefore, they are safe to wear during your pregnancy. However, it is more common for women to experience fuller, thicker hair whilst pregnant. Here’s a little fact: You’re not growing more hair, you’re just losing hair at a slower rate. During those 9 months, estrogen levels are higher which result in less hair shedding…so your hair feels thicker. The upside to this is that your extensions may stay in longer (shedding hair contributes to loose extensions, hence , why move-up appointments are more frequent for some than others). Some women shed hair at a faster rate and can’t go quite as long as the 8-week mark.
You may find yourself needing extensions more after giving birth than during your pregnancy. It is common for women to notice hair loss after giving birth .Postpartum hair will go back to its regular growth rate so you may experience more hair falling out. This is due to estrogen levels tapering back to normal. Dont worry, this isn’t going to be permanent and with Vixen Hair, you have the option to add more volume and thickness through the variety of methods we offer. If it’s just volume you desire, you can do a couple of rows while you wait for your hair to return to it’s regular programming, and then have a full set. A temporary option for a busy mum who doesn’t have time to visit the salon is to order a set of clip-ins!
We do advise that every mum to be gains medical advice prior to having extensions fitted. We remind you that it is at your own risk should you wish to proceed.
Hair extensions must be removed and refitted every 6 to 8 weeks by a qualified hair extension technician. This is absolutely vital to ensure minimal damage is done to your own hair or the extensions. At fitting, our extensionist will arrange your removal / re-fitting appointment to ensure this time frame isn't missed accidentally.
We advise that the removal and refitting is completed in two sessions, however both services can be completed at the same time if preferred. Separating removal and re-fitting appointments allows you to properly clean your hair with clarifying shampoo in-between - removing any build-up of product, adhesive or bond residue.
Don’t panic - it is normal to lose up to 15 hair strands throughout the 6 – 8 week fitting period. These can be saved and re-used.
Hair extensions can fall due to many reasons:
Ensure you are following the Aftercare instructions to maintain the longevity of your extensions. Vixen Hair pride themselves in customer service. If you feel it is due to poor quality, please contact us and we will be happy to review the fitting.
Yes! Always ensure you use a hair extension brush / tangled teaser to prevent the slipping of hair extensions. Your hairbrush must not have balls on the end of the bristles as this puts pressure on the extensions.
Be gentle and hold the tops of the extensions while starting to brush any tangles from the bottom. Purchase a brush from Vixen Hair for $10.
Try not to wash hair extensions more than twice a week as this can cause extra stress to the extensions.
Of course, our hair extensions are real human hair at the highest grade and can be styled in any way. Heat appliances such as straighteners, hair dryers or curling tongs are fine to use however, overuse can cause drying and breakage. Avoid the top of the extensions when applying any heat, as this can damage and melt the bonds (causing fall out or damage to natural hair via bond residue). Always use heat protection spray.
We only provide the highest grade of her extension at Vixen Hair. This means that the hair can be coloured if desired. However, we do not recommend the colouring of extensions as drying may occur and the lifespan of the hair will be shortened. It is recommended that you engage a professional colourist to make any colour changes to your extensions. This is done at your own risk. The use of sulphate free toners is acceptable however, be aware that unnecessary processing may still dry out the extensions. Your own hair can be coloured whilst the extensions are in, as long as the chemicals do not touch the tips or bonds of the extensions. We advise you only have your T section coloured where necessary to avoid risking the accidental colouring of your hair extensions.
Been away on your holidays? Suncream, Chlorine and salt water can dry out hair extensions and cause them to become discoloured. This is not a fault with the hair, but the chemicals and minerals in the water. This impacts the lifespan of the extensions. We do not recommend swimming whilst wearing extensions, however, if you choose to, ensure you plait the hair to avoid tangling and try to keep them as dry as possible (e.g wear a swimming cap). UV Rays can dry out, fade or discolour extensions and breakdown bonds, so wrap the here in a towel if you use the sunbed. Hair extensions gone Brassy or discoloured after your jolly’s? Bring them back to life with Malibu Hard Water Treatment. Purchase online.

Yes, you can swim whilst wearing hair extensions. Here are some guidelines to follow:
If your hair loss is caused by a medical condition or hormonal changes, we would strongly recommend not having hair extensions fitted. Due to the additional weight of the hair extension and the ‘tension’ created at the bond, this will cause further stress on the root, resulting in possible inflammation of the scalp and further hair loss. We always advise clients to gain professional advice from a doctor in this situation. Should you advise that you suffer from a hair loss condition, we will strongly recommend that you do not move forward with semi-permanent extensions (however this is at your own risk). There are other temporary options to consider (for example, Real hair full wigs, Halo’s or Clip ins) – we can advise on all options.
If your hair is simply getting thinner (usually with age or over-processing) or is a heredity condition, generally you shouldn’t have an issue with semi-permanent hair extensions. You will need to gain further advice from our team on the right method to ensure the bonds of the extension are unnoticeable (as some methods can be difficult to disguise with thin hair). Book a consultation for further information.
Unfortunately, not! Below are the 2 main reasons we do not hold stock quantities:
We are aware that, holding stock would mean we can put extensions in quicker, however we believe there is a higher chance you will be unhappy with the result. We would much prefer for all aspects to be correct, rather than get close…and this takes time. When purchasing new hair, it is essential a face to face consultation is completed for variable matching.
Below are examples of the variables when selecting hair extensions. Also revert back to the drop-down list under the hair section where there are more variables:
When we fit or refit, we need to fully replace the bond elements of the extension (for example – the beads, tapes, glue, Thread etc). For a simply removal, we are only removing the old ones, rather than replacing.
