The outer layer of the hair Is called the cuticle. It is made up of overlapping layers of long cells. They lay on the surface all lines in the same direction, like tiles on a roof. The role of the cuticle is to lock in moisture and protect the hair from outside elements. Most of hair shine is thanks to the cuticle. Hair that has been damaged cuticles appears dull, lifeless and dry.

Clip in extensions are temporary extensions that are quick to apply and perfect for someone wanting a change.

Clip-in hair extensions tend to be a short-term approach to alter your appearance, either for a special event (very popular for balls) a night-out or as a test drive for permanent hair extensions. A number of clip-in hair extensions are needed as they are thin sections of hair attached with fine clips. You simply clip the extension wherever you need additional thickness or length for your hair. Once they are put in the hair may be styled as desired.

Showpony Clip In Human Remy A+ Hair Extensions are made of the finest quality Human Remy A+ Hair. They are available in full head 20″ 7 piece sets and are also available in 18” 2clip, 3clip and 4clip individual pieces to thicken or change your look by adding bursts of colour or length where required.

AmoreHair is a breakthrough in Hair Technology that will transform your dull, lifeless, fine or short hair in a matter of hours to allow you to create the look you have always wanted. Unlike other Extensions on the market, AmoreHair are much gentler on your hair.

It’s a fast and effective procedure where a strand of your new AmoreHair is attached to a lock of your own hair using a copper micro bead. The beads are well hidden as compared to other bead systems; they are smaller, softer on your hair and colour matched to your root colour making them as camouflaged as possible. Best of all they are re-useable time and time again.

Micro bead extensions are the perfect way to achieve thickness, length or both! All our AmoreHair extensions are made entirely of high quality genuine 100% remi human hair ranging from 18” and longer. Clients who opt for custom made Amorehair extensions can also select from a range of even longer extensions.

Often you will hear hair extensions company claiming their hair is Remi hair. Remi hair means the cuticle is going in the same direction. Hair is made up of inner cortex and the outer or cuticle. The cuticle is like feathers overlapping on the cortex. If these feathers are not laying in the same direction on EVERY hair strand on your head, you will have horrible matting throughout and very dull hair.

In the hair extension industry, the hair comes in different qualities. Generally you can say “you get what you pay for”. The higher quality hair extensions have all the cuticle perfectly aligned in the same direction. If the strands of hair are not all facing the same direction, the strands will interlock like velcro. This will no doubt lead to matted, dull lifeless and unmanageable hair.

At The House of Ernest we pride ourselves on making hair extensions look as natural as possible to go with your existing style or you can have a complete new look in a matter of hours!
