Beaded hair extensions are quick and easy to apply, as well as extremely natural looking. The hair extension is held in place by an aluminum or copper bead, either threaded, non threaded or silicone lined on the inside, which secures the extension without damaging the natural hair, when applied properly.
As a substitute for harsh glues, technology brought us keratin bonds. Strands of hair are attached with a rolling application using hot keratin. We offer this method and it is known as our Keratin Protein or Fusion.
Tape-in hair extensions are the newest, most revolutionary method to hit the hair extension market. Tape-in hair is designed with a light strip of medical grade adhesive on the weft of the extensions that bonds the extensions to the hair.
We know you’ll be loving your new extensions, and those beauties will need some pampering! If you treat your new extensions right, they’ll last a long time. You’ll also be able to reuse them longer if you maintain them properly. We offer thorough after care instructions and the salon quality products for properly maintaining them at home.

Keeping a regular hair cutting schedule is the best way to keep your hair just the way you like it. Without a regular trim, you may experience straggly, frizzy, damaged looking hair.
Using subtle hair color often creates various hues which reflect light differently. When done correctly this can give your hair a more vibrant and interesting look.

At Southern Swank we understand understand the importance of educating our clients and making sure you understand how to care for you hair. Here are a few frequently asked questions.
Really, it just depends on how fast your hair grows and the condition of your hair, but every 4-6 weeks is standard.
Especially before showering or wetting the hair. Brush gently paying particular attention to the bonds.
These elements can harm your extensions just like your own hair. We recommend not getting your hair wet at all, and safely working on a great tan!
We recommend professional, salon quality products. Sulfates will dry extensions out and may also affect the bonds
Use our Dry Spray Shampoo between washings. Hard or mineral intense water may be harmful to bonds
