Hair extensions Charlestown
Welcome to Extra Length; the best hair extension service for people in Charlestown
We offer hair weaving rather than bonded extensions. This is cheaper because the process is not as time consuming as bonded extensions.
The hair we use blends extremely well with your natural hair both in colour and texture.
What is Braid Weaving?
First the hair is plaited horizontally to the scalp and then wefts (rows) of hair are sewn onto the plaits. There are usually two or three rows depending on the length of the natural hair.
You can find further information on our Hair Extensions page.

Lace front wigs Charlestown
In addition to hair extensions, we also provide lace front wigs, also known as lace front units. Lace front wigs are 100% INDIAN Remy Hair (cuticle hair) hand-tied to a lace base so that it looks as if hair is actually growing out of your head. No one would ever know if you are wearing a wig. The wig is more comfortable and more natural than a hard front wig. These wigs are versatile and can be cut to suite your style.
- People suffering from alopecia, thinning hair and bald patches can wear lace units, and many of our clients have found great success with these units.
- We generally recommend Swiss Lace front units. Swiss Lace is more fragile than French lace but strong enough if handled carefully. It is the least detectable but also very delicate. Swiss lace needs to be handled with care and first time users need to be aware of its delicacy.

Hair weaves in Charlestown
Hair weaves are thought to be better for the hair than bonded extensions as it a more natural process - no glue or keratin is needed with a hair weave.
When wearing a weave the hair can be washed and conditioned as normal - just take extra care when doing around the tracks (plaits) so that you don't put too much stress on them as this can cause them to loosen.
