Extensions FAQ


What types of extension services does G Spot offer?

G Spot Hair Design offers weaving and pinch braids. Our extension application techniques are non-toxic and all natural. No adhesives or glues are used.

Weaving is a more traditional technique and yields a natural look. Ideal for those wanting longer looking or fuller hair, a weave consists of installing a horizontal braid in the natural hair, then sewing a weft of additional extension hair onto the braid.

Pinch braids are installed by braiding a pinch of your natural hair to a vertical length of about 1", then weaving additional extension hair into the braid. Pinch braids are typically used to achieve a highlighted effect, but this method can also be used all over the head in order to give the appearance of longer, fuller hair. The braid is held in place by a single string which allows for easy removal of extension hair. Pinch braids ideal for adding streaks of color without chemically altering your hair.

How much do weave extensions cost?

G spot stylists personally customize and install your weave design for a cost starting at $100, depending on the complexity of the installation. Hair is priced separately, and cost varies, depending on color, quality, and quantity. The cost of extension services include scalp conditioning, customized hair conditioning treatment, braiding, weaving, hair shaping, product consultation, and a finished style-out.

The G Spot's extension maintenance services vary, starting at $100, depending on the complexity of your installation. As your hair grows, your extensions will need to be tightened approximately every 6 to 12 weeks, depending on care and hair texture. Maintenance service includes removal of the extension wefts, conditioning and re-installation of the extensions, and a hair trim.

How much do pinch braids cost?

Splash of highlights: $8 each
Partial highlights: $45 and up
Full highlights: $65 and up

Consultations are always free and required to schedule an installation.

How long will extensions last?

Weaves need to be maintained every 6-12 weeks, depending on care and texture. Pinch braids can remain in the hair for up to 3 months, depending on care, styling habits and hair texture.

Can I treat my extensions like my real hair?
Yes and no. Human hair can be treated like your own. Synthetic hair is heat sensitive, so exercise caution when blow drying or when near any heat source to avoid damaging the hair. Curling and straightening irons cannot be used.

How soon can I have extensions installed?

After your personal consultation, you may book an appointment with a stylist. The installation process for extensions takes from one to several hours. Because the G Spot Hair Design Team is committed to excellence and values your experience in our salon, your appointment may be 3-10 days after your consultation to allow your stylist sufficient time to provide you with the exceptional service you deserve.
