Plaits and braids Hair Extensions Johannesburg

With the arrival of the warmer months, we’re looking forward to updating our ‘dos for some serious summertime style, and one of our favourite looks for a day in the sunshine is the girlish yet grown up, ‘pretty in plaits’.

Check out our guide of how to wear braids and plaits whilst keeping your hair extensions maintained and healthy.
Many people are still in the mindset that hair extensions are only about making hair longer. The truth is that Elaine’s Great Lengths hair extensions are equally as effective for creating medium and short modern hairstyles. With lengths as short as 20cm, you can create asymmetrical styles or add a fringe. 30cm are very popular with long bobs and shoulder length styles. The most popular length is 40cm with a selection of colours also available in 45cm, 50cm and 60cm. For beautifully thick, striking but full bodied medium locks without the years and years of patiently waiting for it to grow.

Hair lengths:

  • 45 – 50cm extra long hair extensions
    Our extra long hair extensions are the crème de la cream of the crop when it comes to adding length. These extensions are perfect for creating long, big volume or textured hair.
  • 30cm – 40cm medium hair extensions
    Our medium extensions are perfect for adding length to shorter hair or for enhancing thickness and volume to mid length styles.
  • 20cm short hair extensions
    Our shorter extensions are ideal for adding subtle length or thickness to your hair. These extensions are perfect for bobs and pixie crops and the 20cm hair extensions are only available in selected colours.

    The first step in getting Great Lengths is consultation with Elaine. Your consultation not only allows your hairdresser to pick the colour of the hair to order, but also decided on what type of look you are going for and how much it will cost. “Two weeks before I got my extensions, I went to meet Elaine who sat me down and chatted about what look I wanted to achieve. For me it was all about the volume. I wanted big swishy hair, that would make you cry with envy and beauty. I had blonde in the ends of my hair, and while I dyed over it kept fading up. She promised me that this wouldn’t be a problem and to make the hair look natural and textured, she would put in 3 different colours in my hair, 2 browns and a caramel colour.

    Elaine recommended some plaits and braids hairstyles that I could choose from while using Great Lengths extensions which are 100% human hair, they can be treated in just the same way as your own hair –straightened, curled, permed and even coloured.
