    Mammab, I have the shrinkies method myself (40 strands in 18 inches just to add volume to my own hair) but I got it done at a local salon. I was thinking of getting the tools too so that I could do them myself...

    I have ordered some hair from connect-hair shop before for clip-in extensions that I made for my mum. Very important is to find hair that has structure that fits your own hair so that it is not noticeable that you are wearing extensions. I know that this one particular company will send you a sample of hair (certain type you will request) for free if you send them a stamped envelope (I dont know how it works if you are not from the UK though, maybe you could contact the seller there, she is at the forums under the nick name ZEPHYR and is a very nice lady).

    Now back to the shrinkies method. I found another site that sells hair and stuff that you need for the shrinkies method http://drlocks.bluedomino.com/store/shrinkies_system.html

    Maybe you could register at the forum that I mentioned above and request a tutorial on how to do them.

    I have had extensions for almost one year and I am wondering if it will cause thinning or hair loss. For those who had extensions and taken them out, please let me know if your hair got thinner. Thanks!!

    I lived in Ohio during college and there's a nice salon in Cleveland Heights (Studio Taylor on Fairmont) where they might do weaves. I've never had extensions, but I suspect they're the kind of place that would do it.

    I don't have the money or the right hair for extensions (it's already too thick). They're also too high maintenance for me.

    mammab- here in vancouver, SUKI'S at Granville is quite popular, they do the Great Lengths. Ask for Laura. she Did mines, Jean Paul use to do mines but he left Suki's and I have nop idea where he is, but he is very good as well as Laura. The 2nd place that you would want to think about is " THE LOUNGE HAIR" www.loungehairstudio.com it is more expsnive than SUKI'S Ive never been there but Ive asked for the price asking for 20" and 2 bundles. Suki is cheaper althouh they use the same Great Lengths, maybe its the tecnhique? I have no idea, since I am still in high school, i decided to go for Suki's since its ceheaper and Suki is very popular and has very high standards too. Another good place is MOHAIR, it is located in Yaletown, yet they do only WEAVINGS no bondings. and they use REMI hair, there are various types liek VIRGIN or etc..its not cheap too.

    As for the Air Pressure Method, no Suki didnt use that, they used the classic normal machine. I dont mind since its only 3 hours and I always do my homework there or read.

    suki's at Grancille- (604) 738 7713

    www.mohairstudio.com

    There are other hair studios that do extensions, but Suki, Mohair and The hair Loung Studio is more well known. tell me what youve decided!

    Mine is the same, and I used to have shrinkies. When I got mine taken out and put back on the same day, I noticed so much of my own hair was coming out while she was taking the extensions off, but the extensionist said "it is normal because we shed a lot of hair everyday and all the hair shedded is stuck on the bonds." I don't know if I should believe her, did this happen to you too?

    I get my extensions done by Salon Elan on Beverly Boulevard @ about La Brea in LA - the stylist is Elan. He uses microrings - so there is no glue or painful weaving. I pay about $400 and I have had this set in for 4 months - I've only lost 3 pieces. He's really great!

    Does anyone know of a good exstensionist/salon in the Bay Area?

    I am contemplating getting extensions put in, but have no idea how to go about finding a stylist.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I did some more research and I seriously don't think I could waste that much money. There are a lot of salons that say Icy Hair and SOCAP are just as good hair. So i'm going to go around to some local salons and try and get more information. Anyone around SF? Know of any good places?

    Yeah, I agree with what madem said. Companies tend to get hooked on their popularity, so of course they can raise their prices. People will still buy them then. Lame. >.<

    1600.00

    For a quote of $1600.00 you would get the best of the best. www.salonfallyne.com and check it out. Give me a shout if it works for you.
    Thanks,
    Fallyne
    P.S: My average packages range from $600.00-$800.00 with hair, cut, color, install.
