They keep strands healthy with organic, customized conditioners, protein boosters, and scalp facials. Besides traditional hair extensions, the techs weave in trendier options, such as feather extensions, Swarovski hair jewels, and clip-in bangs used to switch up styles or add a curtain to forehead projection screens.
