Hair extensions Walkden
Extra Length provides a professional and reliable hair extension service for people in Walkden
We use a technique called "braid weaving". The hair we use is 100% Remy human hair from Europe, India and Brazil.
At Extra Length, we use a technique called braid weaving, which is a permanent method that can be worn indefinitely.
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 Walkden
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.
- There are two type of lace fronts. Full Lace Units - lace around the entire perimeter (used if you want to wear a high ponytail). Lace Front Units - a stretch cap with lace around the front only (you won't be able to wear a high ponytail)
- 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.

Hair weaves in Walkden
When you have had a hair weave, always thoroughly rinse around the tracks to ensure all shampoo and conditioner traces are gone as it is easy to miss some and if it is left in it can cause itching and a flaky effect.
As the name suggests, the hair is weaved to your own hair in a natural way. Weaves look more subtle than bonded extensions as there is nothing really to see.
