    You & Your Wedding
    December Issue 2016

    "My hair looked and felt thicker and healthier and for the first time ever, I could put it up in a ponytail and not have to wind the hairband around it four times. I have to say, if you want thicker hair for your wedding and honeymoon, this is the perfect option – it’ll allow you to be more creative with a wedding up do as well as you’ll have more hair to play with. They last for two months too and can be reused up to three times. Now I’m dreading the day they go and I have to go back to my boring, fine hair…I don’t think I can do it!"

    brides1.jpg brides2.jpg

    "Hair extensions have had an unfortunate reputation of being cheap, tacky and fake looking. The good news is that it has moved on quite significantly. There are beautiful quality extensions that add length, colour and volume in a way that is totally undetectable. Stephanie Pollard is the hair extension specialist that the A list on both sides of the Atlantic flock to when they want picture perfect hair. Her key to natural looking extensions? "I always match the clients' hair texture exactly to the chosen hair extension that will be applied. Texture matching is key and if not carefully mastered, it's a real giveaway to poor hair extensions."

    > This is a result of the ongoing liaison and relationship with Brides, Beauty Director, Funmi Fetto

    "Rethink extensions...'Long term modern extensions are nothing like the obvious, WAG-style ones of the past. They’re versatile, easy to maintain and no one needs to know you’re wearing them,' says hair extension expert Stephanie Pollard (Stephanie-pollard.com). 'Instead of adding length, many of my clients in their 50’s use them to add subtle volume to thinning of fine hair. Stephanie uses tiny, handmade extensions to target specific areas that need filling. 'The effect is subtle but transformative,' she says. 'They hide wispy ends, and are so lightweight that they don’t damage your natural hair..."

    The half-hour hair transformation

    "They’re calling it the seven-day blow-dry, but what you won’t know is that the latest hair fix actually involves secret extensions to add volume as well as style. As the extensions are stuck in using (medical-grade) tape rather than individual bonds, and are added in moderation for a subtle swell, they only take 40 minutes and feel as fuss-free as they look. They can be slipped out after a week, or kept in for up to 10, if you don’t mind the maintenance. The 7-Day Blow- Dry, using Volumeze extensions, is available at Stephanie Pollard, from £270; 020 7751 5673 "

Guide to Hair Extensions

Bespoke single bonds

This method has been designed by Stephanie herself, and she has been successfully using it for the past 15 years. Small strands of hair, mixed to match 100% the texture and the colour of your hair, are attached with special keratin the size of a rice grain. These extensions can be used to enhance both the volume and the length.

Pros – Very discreet; very subtle; easy to manage; flexible with any hairstyle; durable (10-12 weeks).

Cons – Most costly; up to 3 hours’ application time; not re-usable.

Volumeze extensions

Often referred to as ‘tape’ hair extensions, they can be used to create a fuller look, add colour to your hair or extend the length. These extensions are machine-made, seamless tapes, attached to your hair with a transparent adhesive.

Pros – quick application (1 hour); undetectable; easy to remove; relatively low cost; re-usable.

Cons – not bespoke made; not as durable (6-8 weeks); available only in straight texture.

Monofibre extensions

These are made of acrylic fibre. They come in 18 different colours and are hand mixed to match your own colour and texture. These extensions will be braided into your hair with a loop at the base, which allows the tiny braids to move up and down and not exert any pressure on your own hair.

Pros – most lightweight; relatively low cost; easy care; variety of colours.

Cons – not suitable for hair tongs or hair straighteners; not re-usable.
