Location = Summerville, SC
Question = I am a rising senior in high school and I am going to be
attending a cosmetology school in te fall. I eventually want to become a
hair stylist. I wanted to know if you have any advice to give me. When I
start working at a salon can you give me advice on how to get clients. Thanks a lot.
Hi Candice, I am sorry for the late reply. My advice to you, is to never get frustrated you must have a lot of patience and it will
come, if you have faith in your talent. Be persistent, aggressive, and professional. A good suggestion to build your clientele is to
offer discounts to try you and your service. Ex. 10% or 15% off. Never go to low or they will feel you are desperate. I really hope
this information helps you, and good luck with you new found career.
I just finished chemotherapy and I was wondering if hair fusion was possible. I do not have a full head of hair. I do however have
some hair left just very thin. I was hoping u could contact me personally to see what my options could be regarding this.
Hi, Hair fusion would not be very good for you if your hair is thinning or have thinned out. I would suggest a net weave, or lace front
wig, because it helps your hair rest and gives it a chance to grow back. Actually the lace front wig would be the best option
because it has no stress on your hair. Hope this helps, Rhonda
What is the difference between the Fusion Method and the sew-in technique?
The fusion method is totally undetectable, natural, and free flowing. Your edges and crown area are left out for coverage so your
hairstyles are very versatile. You can wear chignons etc.
How long does the Fusion method last?
The Fusion method can last up to 60 . Upon removal you'll have 1-2 inches or more of new growth. It's very important that your
fusion be removed within the proper time period to prevent stress on the hair.
How is Fusion removed?
A licensed professional must remove them, a liquid solution/solvent (crumble) is used to remove the Fusion. Once applied, it turns
the fusion to a powder form and crumbles right off. You will not experience any hair loss. The removal process for fusion is 2 - 4
Can I shampoo my Fusion?
Yes, I recommend the Design Essentials Moisture Retention for weaves. Make sure to brush your hair before you shampoo to
prevent tangling. (condition and moisturize regularly) Do not use hair products that contain a lot of oil. If oil is needed use a dime/
pea size of oil twice a week. Design Silk Essentials is great.
If I am experiencing hair loss or have extremely damaged hair will the fusion method help me?
No. I do not recommend Fusion until you build your hair to a healthy state. Perhaps trying a different weaving method will be better
for you. Try a sew-in or net-weave until your hair gets a little stronger. If you are alopecia/balding or a chemotherapy patient. I
definitely recommend the Lace Front Wig. It's very beautiful and natural looking.
How long does it take to install Fusion?
Installing fusion can take from two to eight hours, depending on the amount of hair you require and the size of the fusion you select.
How much does the Fusion Method Cost?
The price range is from $500 & Up. Each client needs and desired hairstyle will vary in cost. This price includes the cost of the hair.
Some clients request a full head, half of the head, highlights, added fullness or length. It all depends on your natural hair length
and your selected hairstyle.
Can I swim, or play sports while wearing Fusion?
Yes! Wet your extensions before getting in the water. You can still enjoy all your normal activities while wearing your extensions.
The only thing you cannot do is apply heat directly to the fusion; it will melt and cause shedding. I suggest that each night you pull
your hair into a ponytail, or use a silk scarf on your hair. You can braid it in two plaits for easy maintenance or wrap it at night. For
curly extensions, I suggest you pull your hair into one ponytail or a silk hair bonnet.
Can I get a Sew-In if I am alopecia in the crown?
Yes! Netting is used instead of braids to cover the alopecia and it is then sewn in the cover the area.
How do I maintain my sew-in?
Wrap at night and tie a silk scarf around it. This will help you avoid having to hot curl it daily. Also, avoid using a lot of oil because
this will weigh the hair down. If needed use a dime or pea size.
Question = This will be my first time having a sew in weave and I'm not
sure of what texture of hair to buy. I was told to buy Zury hair, urban beauty hair or Remy. What do you recommend?
Hello, Thx for visiting the Website. Well Remy is the best, but pricey. If you are getting straight hair I prefer Milky way Blue, then
regular Milky way. Their hair is consistent and of great quality. If you are going with curly hair Milky way is good also, and Sensual. I
use Sensual Curly in my own hair weaves. Hope this helps. THX Rhonda
Question = As far as the fusion weaving is concerned, I hear all these wonderful things you can do with it and how easy it it is to
keep it up but what I want to know is how are you suppose to shampoo it at home? What happens when your hair starts to
grow...do you have to have it re tightened in the places its coming loose also i heard that you can relax your hair with that stuff
in....how exactly? Thanks in advance. Im thinking of having it done but needed some questions answered first. Sy
Hi Shannon, It's best to get it shampooed by your stylist. When relaxing, I only advise relaxing the perimeter, where the fusion is
not. As it grows out. I do not recommend re tighten, I recommend getting it redone, which is up to 3 months.
