What does REMY mean?
Contrary to what many think, the term Remy represents a quality and not a brand of hair extensions. Remy quality hair is foremost 100% human hair. They don’t contain any synthetic fibers – the cuticle of this hair has been preserved and the scales are directed in the same direction. With Remy hair, you can be sure to have quality, silky extensions that won’t tangle over time. However, be careful! Many marketers claim to sell Remy hair, but this is a false representation.
How to choose the right color hair extensions?
To choose the right color for your extensions, please refer to the color that most resembles your hair lengths or tip. This way, you make sure you get the most natural look possible. If you want to color your natural hair soon, it’s best to choose your extensions once the color is done. If you’re still unsure of the right color choice to take, please contact us; it will be our pleasure to help you!
Which hair extensions method is best for me?
If you’re a beginner or unsure of your choice, you can start with clip-in extensions, as they’re suitable for all hair types.
However, if you prefer to get longer hair, there are three permanent techniques available to you: pre-bonded keratin extensions, I-tip extensions or tape-in extensions. To learn more about the different methods, see our specialties section, permanent or temporary hair extensions.
Do hair extensions damage the hair?
No! Hair extensions require some maintenance on the part of the customer. It’s essential to follow our recommendations on maintenance to the letter, if you want to keep your hair in good condition. Also, to avoid all these problems, it’s strongly suggested to work in close collaboration with a qualified and certified hair extension professional. In summary, if the extensions are well maintained and have been applied using a professional technique respecting your hair type, it’s unlikely that you will damage your natural hair.

Can we dye our extensions?
Yes and no! You can adjust the color of your extensions by coloring them with a soft tint to change the highlight or darken them. To do this, choose a color of extensions one tone lighter than the desired color. If you need to fade them, learn that you can’t bleach them. This chemical treatment will considerably damage your extensions and you won’t obtain the guaranteed result.
Do the extensions curl?
All our extensions, regardless of the technique used, take on a wavy shape (beach looks) when wet. On the other hand, if you want to stiffen them, they smooth out easily. So you get the best of both worlds by using our top quality hair extensions.
What is the minimum length to obtain a natural extension pose?
To create a natural look and be able to camouflage the attachment points correctly, tape-in or clips, it’s recommended to perform the installation on at least 6 inches of hair. Also note if your natural hair is short, the shorter your extensions will have to be if you want to obtain a natural result. The longer your hair grows, the more length you can afford to add.
