Best Hair Extensions Salons NYC. We Make Hair Extensions Look Natural and Flawless! Certified with SoCapUSA & Great Lengths.
The red carpet has a secret: Hair extensions. How do you think celebs go from a lob to mermaid hair overnight? And stars like Chrissy Teigen, Kim Kardashian and Mindy Kaling are all about full disclosure when it comes to their long locks. Hair Extensions have come a long way when it comes to quality and technology. They’re not just for adding length or fullness—wear them to experiment with different styles or strands of blue. Our hair extensions specialists at Fine Artistik Salon and the salon is known for being the best hair extensions salons NYC!
Consider your lifestyle. We have three different types of hair extensions. The entry level—the gateway drug—is our clip-ins. Those are most popular with beginners since they’re so user-friendly. Essentially barrettes with hair attached, they can be clipped in or out whenever you’d like. The second option is tape extensions; those are held in place with strong, invisible bi-adhesive premium tape that’s undetectable to the touch; they last for up to eight weeks but you may use the same hair up-to a year. The third choice is keratin bond hair extensions. They’re attached with a high-tech process that binds them with sound activation and keratin attachments; they last for three months or more. If you do a lot of hot yoga, the tape is not a good option—the keratin is a better. If you want to change your color often, opt for the tape because the keratin is in there a long time. We really have our stylists assess clients’ lifestyles; if they wear glasses they know where to put the extensions. There’s lot of little things and that’s what makes it a special experience when they come in. Also, a major factor is getting the proper haircut. It’s all about the blending of the hair extensions with your hair for the full experience.
Get the right color match. Being off even by a shade is a dead giveaway that you’re wearing faux hair. The most accurate way is to color match with the ends of your locks, not the roots, and go with the color that’s the most prominent in your natural hair. What makes Fine Artistik Salon’s hair different than many of the other brands is that most women don’t have one shade of hair. They tend to be mixed, so our colors are blended for the most part. That’s what really allows us to be able to color match someone on the spot. We have over 91 colors!

Splurge on quality. Synthetic extensions are the most affordable, but they tangle easily and have a super high shine, which makes them look obviously unnatural. And non-virgin hair means it’s been processed—either dyed or treated to change its texture—so it’s also not ideal, since it’s more damaged. Remy extensions are the highest quality. They’re the closest to your real hair, so they’ll hold styles and texture the same way and won’t shed as much as the cheaper options. Our hair is a proprietary line, so we’ve developed it so it works for all! It’s 100% Remy hair, which is really important because our goal is for you not to look like you’re wearing fake hair. Someone should not be able to tell that you’re wearing extensions. A key to having natural-looking extensions is making sure the hair cuticles are all facing the same way to prevent tangles and matting. For clip-ins, look for a silicone cushion on the clips to prevent tangles and breakage.
Do maintenance work. Just like your natural hair, extensions need regular washing. Wash clip-ins every six to eight times that you wear them, depending on how much product you’re using. Give them a little bath in your sink and dry them on a towel. Before washing clip-ins, remove them and comb out any tangles. Use a shampoo and conditioner free of sulfates and parabens, and blot them with a towel to remove excess water, then let them air dry. Use a gentle shampoo for tape-on and keratin extensions too, focusing on the roots, and condition only from the mid-length of the hair down. Protect your extensions by waiting until they’re mostly dry to use heat styling tools, and avoid using those directly on the tape and keratin bonds. And don’t go to bed with wet hair—make sure your hair is totally dry before you hit the pillow.
Extensions don’t only add length. You can choose to add volume instead (or in addition to length), which is perfect for fine, limp or thinning hair. Turn that bob into a mane! If your existing hair is at little as 5 inches long, you can get extensions, although the extent of your transformation may be limited if your hair is very short. Extensions can be braided in, glued in, woven in, or — if you only need a follicular boost for a special event — clipped in. You can also add highlights or color with shades ranging from mild to wild. The process isn’t painful, so it shouldn’t hurt a bit. We are the best hair extensions salons NYC!
There are a ton of different kinds of extensions, and not all of them will work with your hair. There are clips-ins, which pop in and out in two seconds; tape-ins, which attach to thick sections of your hair with a double-sided keratin tape; sew-ins, which are woven into a concealed braid without any glue; and keratin-bonded extensions, which are bonded to small sections of hair two centimeters from your scalp with various types of adhesives, such as keratin, glue, or plant- or petroleum-based adhesives.
On top of having a ton of types to choose from, there are also artificial and natural hair extensions, different textures from different regions, and thousands of colors you can pick from as well. To make the right choice, Jacob Amin suggests shopping around to find the ones that work for your hair type, lifestyle, and budget — don’t feel obligated to go with whatever your usual salon carries. Instead, do some research, go in educated, and ask questions!
