Hair is an important part of a person's appearance, so unwanted hair loss, hair thinning, and hair-texture changes can be surprising and unwelcome developments. That's where Belle Chic Studio Salon steps in. Since 1994, it has outfitted its customers with a variety of wigs and hair extensions. Skin-weft extensions that look and feel natural seamlessly add length and volume to hair. A staffer applies the extension to the scalp with tape?in a process far more effective than applying it with sticky bubblegum. For micro-ring extensions, on the other hand, a hair-loss expert uses MicroLinks to attach the extension to the client's natural hair, for results that last for up to five months. Toupees are also available; staffers can attach a toupee to as few as five existing strands of hair.
People who already have a full head of hair but want to make it longer and smoother can undergo a keratin hair-straightening process. This treatment is suitable for any ethnicity or race and works on all types of curls. Clients decide how straight they want their hair to become.
Because hair loss can be a sensitive issue, Belle Chic maintains private, off-the-street parking and private styling rooms. Women can request an image consultant, and all customers receive confidential services.
