Great Lengths Multisonic
Much like eye lash extensions, hair extensions are often misunderstood for being bad for you. Through my personal experience in trialling both services, I have to admit if the treatment is done right; it can do wonders for you. Today, I am going to tell you why I chose hair extension and how it can be the best thing I have done for myself to date. If you have gorgeous, full volume and length hair, you can stop reading now but for the rest of you, let’s have a chat shall we?
Great Lengths Hair Extensions
Bit on my hair story, I have dead straight, volume-less hair that is in its awkward growing out length. Naturally, I fall into the perfect category of A) wanting long hair, B) wanting volume and C) wanting for a change. Now, we are all no stranger to Great Lengths and their ethnically sourced 100% real human hair extensions. Their new Great Lengths Multisonic Hair Extension session only takes an hour to complete instead of your traditional 4-6 hours of sitting still waiting for your extensions to be applied. When I first heard of the dramatic time difference, I knew I had to jump on it to experience myself
Mieka Hairdressing (available in Melbourne & Gold Cost) who was recently announced as 2012 Australian Salon of the Year at 2012 Australian Hair Fashion Awards was my go-to hair salon for hair extension because they are the experts in town and also houses the head trainer of Great Lengths in Victoria – the very talented D’Artanian. Instead of rushing into the whole process, I had an in-depth consultation with D’Artanian answering my concerns, working towards my expectations and most importantly chatted through my hair colour and what coloured extensions to order for a 100% perfect match.
Shortly after the initial consultation, I went back to Mieka for colour and again within 48 hours of freshly dyed hair to have my Great Lengths Multisonic Hair Extensions fitted. We agreed on 40cm length that falls naturally just on my chest with a combination of 3 shades -black + 2 shades of brown aka natural, highlights and lowlights, all chemical free and fused with keratin for an undetected, natural finish.

The procedure itself was surprisingly quick, all under an hour and I walked out of the salon with a full head (150 strands) of extensions. Thanks to the new Great Length’s Multisonic technology, they were able to apply 5 strands at a time, creating exquisite smooth pillow bonds that are pre-bonded with keratin protein and attached to my natural hair via an air pressure & cold fusion method. These geniuses little pillow bonds also stay flat and minimize hair from being tangled and matted. Gotta love new technology and how far hair extensions have progressed.

With proper care (especially important to use correct shampoos and conditions), hair extensions can last up to 6 months with the help of regular hair brushing (recommended twice a day with a Great Lengths brush which is specially designed to work with the bonds), a check-up appointment following the initial application and utilizing Great Lengths Anti-Tap Water remedy to eliminate damage from alkalinity in water.
Styled hair extensions
I love how I can go about with my usual hair styling including heated Irons, how lightweight my full head of extensions feel (trust me I’ve done this with another brand before and have not felt this liberated) and sleep in peace without feeling something is sticking out or poking into me. That and of course the compliments I keep receiving from ladies and gentlemen alike about how gorgeous and natural my hair extensions are.
Highly recommend Great Lengths Multisonic Hair Extensions for the time poor, those who wish for volume + length and brides to be to have the perfect dreamy hair that looks natural and seamless not only in person but in pictures too.
