Back to your roots

Style slumps, colour conundrums, and flat hair woes can be banished this autumn – thanks to the new rooted strands range which has just launched from premium hair extensions brand, Great Lengths.

With the balayage trend here to stay, Great Lengths continues to deliver market-leading shades with the introduction of this new collection, enabling stylists to offer even more seamless blends and flawless results for their clients.

Previously, the application technique for extensions being applied to balayage or highlighted hair involved a conscious application pattern to disguise the bond, or a tint on the root, the rooted extensions now allow extentionists the flexibility to apply a darker bond, which is less detectable, whilst still maintaining lighter ends.

The stretched roots have 3cm of dark root colour and the remaining hair is a shade of blonde. There are four rooted colours ranging from a subtle variation to a more obvious dark to light, allowing for different finishes for clients from natural to more enhanced.

Renowned for its quality, the new line of pre-bonded rooted extensions use the same 100% human hair as Great Lengths’ base shades, fashion colours, and Flow Strands, which means they are just as versatile as natural hair and can be treated and styled as desired.

“After recent years of subtle ombre fade-outs, an extra couple of inches of root regrowth is positively encouraged,” said Louise Jenkins, Great Lengths Education and Creative Manager.

Leading the way in innovation, this month also sees the addition of three new colours to Great Lengths’ extensive portfolio of base shades, offering an even wider scope of seamless blends and finishes for clients who want to naturally enhance their look.

Great Lengths new stretched root and base coloured extensions are available exclusively at Great Lengths certified salons nationwide now.
