Can the hair be colored...

Yes, the hair can be colored. Just like natural hair, though it’s generally  easier to dye the hair a darker color rather than trying to lighten the hair color. We do strongly recommend taking the extensions to your professional stylist, rather than trying to D.I.Y!! You can bleach the hair but we also strongly advise If you want a lighter look, a great option is to order our blonde wefts and darken it to your preferred shade with semi-permanent color.


Where does the hair come from...

All of the luxurious hair that goes into HEW hair extensions is 100% ethically sourced and harvested from WILLING donors. Almost all of our hair originates from parts of India and parts of east Asia.  Our hair has a more natural feel and look to it, as well as being naturally shiny and healthy looking. HEW hair blends perfectly with a variety of hair types. It is also very durable and as long

 

How long does the hair last....

With proper care, your HEW hair extension should last up to 1-2 years.  For sew-in installations, hair should be removed and reinstall every 6-8 weeks.  See our hair care guide for recommended products and caring instructions. Because of the unique and delicate craftsmanship, lace frontals have a shorter life span of 4-6 weeks or 1-2 uses, and typically need to be re-applied and strictly maintained in order to get the full wear. Although versatile and flexible, Lace frontals are considered ''temporary styles'' due to the life span of the lace itself in comparison to a lace closure.
