The Best Hair Extensions are Available at Avant-Garde's Miami Salon!
Want to change up your style but not sure where to start? With so many different hair extension brands, types, and methods out there, it can get overwhelming trying to figure out which type of hair extension is best for you. Whether you're looking for more volume, length, or thickness, want something provisory or long-term, we're here to help you on your hair journey. Below, we've broken down our 4 types of extensions so you can more easily decide which option is best for you. Ready? Let's get started.
Before we dive in on the different hair extensions and their application methods, it's important to distinguish human hair or natural extensions versus synthetic hair extensions. Because knowing the difference between the two can influence your decision on which one is best for you.
The main difference between natural versus synthetic hair extensions is how they are made. Natural human hair extensions are made from human hair that's typically given by a donor. 100% human hair extensions are just that—they're made of 100% human hair. Likewise, hair extensions might have & virgin hair," which is 100% human hair that has never been chemically treated or dyed. Remy hair, considered the finest quality of human hair, is human ponytail hair that keeps the hair cuticle intact and aligned in the direction it grew, giving the extension a natural look and feel.
Synthetic hair extensions contain no human hair and are made of various synthetic and blended fibers designed to imitate natural human hair.
The look and feel of your hair extensions will largely depend on the quality of the hair itself. Higher quality human hair extensions will have a better look and feel than cheaper synthetic extensions, as they blend in more naturally with your hair. Synthetic hair extensions, on the other hand, can often feel less like natural hair and more coarse and wiry to the touch.
One massive benefit to having human hair extensions is that they can act in the same ways as your natural hair would, meaning that you can style them with your normal hot tools, cut and color them, or apply your go-to hair products. Synthetic hair extensions have less flexibility when it comes to coloring and styling. With synthetic hair, you cannot color or style them the way you would with human hair as you risk damaging or even destroying the synthetic hair. Synthetic hair extensions can also be negatively affected by the sun, hair products with sulfate or alcohol, friction, and more.
Synthetic hair is more affordable than natural hair. However, with that smaller price tag comes tradeoffs with quality. Human hair extensions are more durable than synthetic hair fibers and can
last for months.
When it comes to hair extensions, the truth is that synthetic hair will never look entirely natural. That's why we use only 100% human hair to ensure that you have the best-looking results, find the perfect color match and have hair that's easy to maintain. Now that we've made the distinction between natural vs. synthetic's get to the different types of hair extensions we offer!
Avant-Garde Salon and Spa offers hair lengthening and thickening from Great Length for self-confident women wanting to look their best. Great Length hair is real hair and giving healthy extensions with invisible bonding that is long lasting because of the application techniques. ... At Avant Garde Salon we offer the best products by using REMI hair (100% real hair) instead of synthetic hair. Unlike Tape Extensions attached on a section of hair, Great Lengths are bonded using cold fusion technique and are applied by individual strand. When you sit with our Styling Experts, they will inform you on how to maintain your new thickened and longer hair.
Keratin Hair Bonds are the best looking semi / permanent hair extensions available! By using Great Lengths real hair extension bonded strands, you will feel and look your best.
Tape-in hair extensions are pre-taped and then taped (or glued) together on either side of your own hair. Tape-in hair extensions require a professional hairdresser who will apply the tape-ins by aligning them with the roots and applying heat to seal the glue. You'll also need to visit the salon when you want the tape-ins removed and new ones put in (the extensions can be reused if in good condition). This process typically takes between 40 minutes to 1.5 hours.
Tape-ins are an easy-to-maintain extension that offers length and volume. Tape-ins are also an excellent option for those who frequently work out, swim, or spend a lot of time in the water since you don't have to remove them before getting wet.
Tape-in extensions are semi-permanent, meaning they last 6 to 8 weeks on average. If well taken care of, tape-in extensions can be reused up to 3 times.
Our salon uses premium 100% Remy real hair tape-in extensions by Bellami and Hairtalk. Bellami offers an extensive range of colors and styles such as rooted, balayage, and ombre. They are also a fabulous choice for those women looking to have very long hair (longer than 25 inches).
Hairtalk extensions are also a terrific tape-in option. They're perfect for those with a smaller budget who don't want hair longer than 25 inches. However, they are more limited in color, so always consult with a hair professional before choosing which option is best for you.
Weft hair extensions are a technique where wefted tracks are sewn into the existing hair. This method is predominately used for those with thick, curly, or coarse hair. The sew-in application is lengthy (at least several hours) and puts tension on the scalp because the application method is so tight.
One of the major benefits of sew-in extensions is that they blend seamlessly into your real hair. They are a low-maintenance option for those wanting to add hair volume and length.
You are recommended to change sew-ins about every 6 to 8 weeks to still allow your natural hair time and room to grow.
For sew-ins and volume wefts, we use Bellami extensions.
Fusion hair extensions (also known as pre-bonded) are fused with natural hair using different adhesives. Hot fusion is an application method where the hair extensions are attached at the hair's keratin-based tips with a heating element or tool. The heat fuses the hair's natural hair with the extensions. On the other hand, the cold fusion technique uses ultrasound bonding to attach hair extensions without any heat damage.
The fusion application process can take about 3 hours and needs to be done by a professional hairstylist. On the bright side, the results typically last between 4 to 6 months and it's a great option for those who want a natural, long-lasting look that will blend seamlessly into the hair.
For fusion and pre-bonded extensions, we use Great Lengths. The brand is known for its high-quality, ethically sourced 100% human Remy hair that lasts up to 6 months with proper care and maintenance. Great Lengths also offers a wide range of length, volume, and color effects, so you can always find exactly what you're looking for.
Microlink hair extensions (or I tips) is an application method that weaves small sections of hair through an undetectable MicroLink tube to attach the extensions without glue, tape, or thread. Microlink is considered one of the safest hair extension options because it requires zero glue or harsh chemicals. And, if applied correctly, the hair can still thrive underneath.
Professional hairstylists can purposefully apply the micro links depending on what hairstyles the client often wears. So no matter how high your ponytail is, none of the attachments will show. The application can take an hour or several depending on how many extensions are needed.
It's recommended that MicroLink extensions be replaced every 2-3 months to protect the growth cycle of your natural hair.
For MicroLink extensions, we use Bellami.

To provide proper maintenance, wash hair 2-3 times a week so hair does not dry out, while not allowing too much oil to accumulate reducing the life of the tape.
