FAQ's

How much do Hair Extensions cost ?

Like everything that is individual the cost of hair extensions varies.
There isn’t one price for everyone as the experience is not an “Off the peg” or “One size fits all” proposition.
The reason being we all have different requirements some of us have a lot more hair than others so it wouldn’t be realistic to have a menu of fixed prices, this is why a bespoke package is tailored to suit all your requirements.
However it is realistic to say that full head Hair Extension prices range from £290 upwards and Part Head or Volume solutions start from £180.
At Extensions by Debbi we recommend our no obligation consultation, this will answer all your questions and enable us to put together the appropriate hair solution to suit you ……..and your budget!

What is Remy hair ?

The term “Remy” is often used (and misused) in the world of hair extensions, it can be misleading and extremely confusing. Whether or not hair extensions are truly “Remy” will have a huge effect on the quality and the longevity of the hair, which is why it is important to understand what this term truly should mean.
“Remy hair” refers to hair extensions which have been collected from a human hair donor, the hair has gone through only minimal processing to ensure that the hair is soft, silky and also tangle free.
The hair should be cuticle correct meaning that cuticles are not stripped and they remain aligned in one direction, this is important to ensures the hair will remain tangle free.
Non cuticle correct hair is unmanageable and inclined to “Birdsnest”
Extensions by Debbi proudly source only true Remy hair which is cuticle correct.
