If there is one question we hear over and over again, it is “How much will my Great Lengths application cost?” While this is a very reasonable question to ask, it can be a tough one to answer! Because Great Lengths are 100% customizable, there is no set price or “one size fits all” answer to the question of cost. The cost of a Great Lengths application can vary a great deal… there are many different factors at play!
How Great Lengths Extensions Are Priced
When it comes to determining the cost of a Great Lengths application, a stylist must look at and consider:
Your desired final look
The number of bundles of extensions needed to achieve that look
The number of colours needed
If a custom blend is required
If a custom order is required (Will your extensions need to be permanently curled or custom coloured?)
The time required to complete your application
The bond size needed
The method to be used (hot fusion, cold fusion, GL Tapes)
The finishing cut and style necessary to complete the look
The length and condition of your natural hair
The shape and size of your head (Some people have bigger heads, some people have smaller heads!)
The density of your natural hair. Does the density change throughout the head?
In addition to these details specific to you, you also have to consider your stylist’s level of experience and skill, as well as the market or city you are in (overhead costs for salons vary from city to city), as these too are important factors in determining cost.
Let’s break it down:
THE COST OF THE EXTENSIONS
(which, as you can see in the list of factors above, can vary a great deal from person to person!)
THE COST OF YOUR STYLIST
(The labour cost, which will vary depending on application time, experience, market and more.)
THE APPROXIMATE COST OF YOUR GREAT LENGTHS APPLICATION.
A guest with fine, long and healthy natural hair may require only two bundles of extensions in one colour, to achieve her desired result. This installation process may only take a stylist two hours to achieve. At the opposite end of the spectrum, another guest with short, layered, thick and chemically damaged hair might require 6 bundles of extensions, in a number of shades and varying bond sizes to achieve her seamless blend. This application could quite possibly take 6 or 7 hours to achieve. You can understand why the cost in these two cases would vary a great deal! Every client and every installation is different.
