Why Pierre Haddad hair extensions?

Long hair has always been the embodiment of feminine beauty. Nothing has changed for decades but the dream of long hair often meets great difficulties. Environmental factors, stress and the chemicals in hair products weaken their condition.

Many women do not believe that “hair extension” is a solution to their problems because it seems unnatural or damaging to the hair.

However, when it is done at Pierre Haddad – the best hair extensions in Sydney, it will almost be impossible to distinguish from natural hair and in just a few hours you can add greatly to your hair length and volume.

Pierre Haddad Hair Extensions are the best hair extensions in Sydney. When sourcing my hair extensions I travel to many different villages in Ukraine, to get the very best Russian Hair Extensions. Most importantly, I make sure that hair I purchase from the villages has been donated appropriately and in the correct circumstances.

I’ve built very good relationships with these suppliers to ensure the absolute best quality of human hair. One of my secrets is ensuring that all my hair is Human Hair Extensions. My client’s human hair Extensions look natural which eliminates the guessing game in social situations.

Copperbells is the method I use which allows the hair to grow freely with limited to no damage. I research the latest trends in Hair Extensions, exclusively importing Russian and Sybrian Hair to use in my salons in Sydney.

Beware of fake russian hair extensions!

Many salons claim they have Russian Hair extensions but more often than not they are misleading clients. This misleading information is like receiving silver when you have requested 24 caret gold!

The Process

This means that they are extremely comfortable to wear and, most importantly, completely invisible to detect. Copper Bells are so invisible that they make this method the most natural and most advanced on the market. Most important of all your own hair is not damaged.

Conversely, the natural hair additions are simply from real haircuts. Thus, it is quite possible to dry this type of extensions, as you would dry yours. Of course, this also implies, as for your natural hair, not to abuse the hair dryer if you want to avoid damaging them too quickly – especially if you want to keep your extensions as long as possible . On the other hand, it will be necessary to be very vigilant as for their point of glue: the keratin used during the pose is sensitive to the heat, so be careful not to expose heat there.
