Gone are the days when the only people who had hair extensions were on TOWIE. Many ladies from all walks of life, from nurses to teachers are saying enough to feeling unhappy with their hair and are opting for hair extensions.
Imagine if every day was a good hair day, if you could add volume and length, and style your hair in ways you have never been able to. With hair extensions you can. But don’t just take my word for it, here are 5 reasons why you need hair extensions.
You regret having your hair cut
Whether you have reached a certain age and decided to go shorter, or whether you’ve asked for a trim and ended up with a pixie cut, a haircut that drastically changes how you look is definitely not always a good thing. Hair extensions are the answer to giving you some length back while your natural hair is growing back.
Your hair just doesn’t grow
Are you frustrated that your hair never grows past a certain length? This can happen if you get frequent chemical treatments or use curling wands and straighteners a lot. Hair gets damaged and your hairdresser will end up chopping it off. Hair extensions can give you the long, thick hair you have always dreamed of.
Your hair is fine
When you have fine hair it can affect your self-confidence and a lack of volume makes it really hard to style hair how you would want. Hair extensions are great for adding natural volume or something a little more dramatic.
You want to change your look
Hair extensions can be used to give you more length, volume, and some variations on your colour, plus they’ll make any braid, bun, or ponytail look amazing.
You’ve got a special occasion coming up
If you’re getting married or you have another big occasion or event coming up, don’t let your unhappiness about your hair spoil it. Use hair extensions to achieve your dream hair goals and we guarantee you’ll be smiling on every photo!
Is my hair suitable for hair extensions?
When you come for a consultation, we’ll look at your natural hair and talk about the look you would like to achieve. Ideally, your hair should not be damaged by colouring or heat styling, and it should be at least shoulder length.
We’ll also ask you some health and lifestyle questions, because there are factors which can make hair extensions unsuitable for you. If you are taking medication that causes hair loss or you have a condition which causes your hair to fall out, hair extensions may be unsuitable for you. Also, If you have recently had a baby, hormonal changes can cause hair loss, so we recommend waiting 6 months until things settle down before deciding on extensions.
How your lifestyle might affect the fitting of extensions
We’ll always talk to you about your lifestyle too, so we can choose the best fitting method for you. If you exercise regularly, and indulge in saunas or steam rooms, Tape-In or Injection Tape hair extensions would be unsuitable for you, for example. We do have hair extensions which are easy to manage for people with active or busy lifestyles though, like the Hollywood Weave, which is amazingly versatile.
All that’s left after choosing the most suitable fitting method is to colour match your hair to the extensions. We have everything from basic one tone shades to darker tones with highlights, balayage, and ombre.
Achieve the hair of your dreams
Hair extensions from Boni Hair look just like your own hair, only better! We are always delighted when clients tell us about the compliments they’ve had about their hair; and nobody ever realises they’re extensions, which is a testament to the quality of the hair we use and our precision fitting skills.

Losing your hair can be very upsetting, and it’s especially tough for women. Because the hair is related to femininity and self-image, hair loss can badly affect confidence and self-esteem. There are many causes of hair loss, and whatever the cause, the effects can be devastating. But there are solutions.
The hair integration system
We are one of very few salons in the UK who offer a hair integration system. This is a semi-permanent cosmetic hair loss solution, where donor hair is attached to the crown. Unlike wigs, it’s completely breathable. The hair is pulled through a mesh and secured to it, giving the illusion of a scalp. The system lasts for up to two years and needs to be readjusted to account for new hair growth every 6 weeks. Every 12 weeks, the system is completely removed and reapplied to ensure your look is as natural as it can be.
Every system is custom made to ensure a comfortable fit, and even though it’s worn constantly and not removed on a daily basis, you’ll be able to do your normal activities like going to the gym and swimming.
Is the hair integration system for you?
We understand that hair loss can be very distressing, and that it takes a lot to actually go and speak to someone about it. That is why when you come to a consultation with us, you’ll get the privacy and empathy that you need.
When we discuss hair loss solutions and whether the hair integration solution is right for you, we’ll need to talk about:
Your medical history
There can be many causes of hair loss including:
· Alopecia Areata: The immune system attacks the hair follicles causing patchy hair loss
· Alopecia Totalis: This is the complete loss of the scalp and facial hair
· Alopecia Universalis: The scalp and body hair is lost
· Scarring/frontal fibrosing alopecia: Frontal fibrosing alopecia is the progressive loss of hair from the hairline. With scarring alopecia, the hair follicle is destroyed and scars form, preventing the hair from growing back.
· Female pattern hair loss/baldness: This type of hair loss usually starts from the parting or the crown and is usually genetic. It can also occur after the menopause. If your hair loss has occurred mainly along your parting, you could opt for a micro parting system, which adds extra volume to the parting area only.
· Traction Alopecia: This is caused by the hair being pulled too tight, especially if you have braided it or had it in very tight pony tails too often.
· Telogen effluvium: This type of hair loss usually occurs after some kind of trauma or shock. It tends to happen 6-12 weeks after the stressful event and is common after childbirth.
· Anagen effluvium: Medication or nutritional deficiency are the most common causes of this type of hair loss. The hair is forced to shed when it’s in the first stages of growth so hair loss can be quite rapid.
· Trichotillomania: This is a disorder where the sufferer has a compulsion to pull at their hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, or body hair. A hair integration system is great for people with this condition as they won’t be able to reach the areas they’ve been pulling the hair from. It’s crucial that sufferers get emotional and behavioural support too however, in the form of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy).
· Lupus: This is an auto-immune disease that can cause hair loss in around 50% of sufferers.
· Nutritional defiency: Deficiencies in iron and some key vitamins can cause hair thinning and loss.
· PCOS and thyroid issues: These hormone-related conditions can cause hair loss and noticeable hair thinning.
Whatever the cause of your hair loss, we would always recommend that you seek advice from a trichologist before committing to any hair replacement system.
We’ll discuss whether you’re familiar with hair replacement systems, and what your expectations are. If you have extensive hair loss, any amount of added volume will be a dramatic change and might take a bit of getting used to.
Your suitability for a hair integration system
If your hair is still shedding, you won’t be suitable for a hair integration system. To determine your suitability, I’ll always do a strand test, where I pull on a small section of the hair. If more than 5 hairs come out, a hair integration system is not suitable for you. There are other factors which might make the hair integration unsuitable for you. These include:
· The type of physical activity you do
· The financial viability of fitting and maintaining the system
· Recent pregnancy and breastfeeding (current or in the last 12 months)
· Recent chemotherapy (in the last 12 months)
· Having allergies
· Having an extremely sensitive scalp
· Having a very oily scalp, which means that the system will need more frequent washing and maintenance.
· Having cuts, fresh scars, or pimples on the scalp
· Having more than 50% hair loss

By the way did you know that 90% of women who wear hair extensions don't want other people to know about it?
Majority of people seem to have this misconception that hair extensions are only for celebrities and "Pretty girls", which is not the case in this day and age. In fact majority of our clients are professional working ladies - nurses, teachers, real estate agents, managers, fitness instructors and so on. Ladies aged between 25-55 who lead a busy lifestyle, but in fact are very unhappy with their hair.
This could be a number of reasons:
Imagine if you were able to style your hair with some nice curls, added volume would allow you simply wear your hair straight without feeling self conscious how fine your hair looks, no more hiding your fine hair into a ponytail or bun in fact , your pony-tale or bun would look so much better with added volume. Don't you think?
The Even Better News Is - At Boni Hair Extensions you will be in great hands! We feel very proud when our clients come back to their follow-up appointment and every single one is revealing the same thing: "No one noticed I was wearing hair extensions" or "Someone thought my hair has grown a lot since last time we've met" or even better commenting on how nice the colours looks, but not noticing that hair has suddenly gone longer! This is how astonishing results are! Hair extensions from Boni Hair looks just like you own hair!

Is my hair long enough for hair extensions? Is my hair too thin? I have so many colours in my hair, will you be able to find the right match for my hair? These are just few questions clients ask Boni Hair Extensions every day. Lets have a quick look on how we determine if your natural hair is suitable for hair extensions.
Firstly we look at your natural hair as well as ask what hair style you would like to achieve with hair extensions. The ultimate goal is to have hair extensions that DO NOT look like extensions. Your hair must be healthy - not damaged with colouring or heated styling tools such as straightening. To find most suitable fitting method for your hair we carry out a consultation where we ask few questions about your health and lifestyle:
You may think what do these questions got to do with price of cheese? :D Let me explain few of these - If you are taking medication or suffer from an illness which affects your hair growth or maybe causing natural hair to fall out more than usual, hair extensions may not be suitable. The same applies if you recently given birth to a baby as hormones rapidly change back to normal, it often cause hair loss in new mums. This is why we recommend waiting 6 months before deciding on getting hair extensions.
If you love exercising, saunas and steam rooms there is certain fitting methods that would not be suitable for your life style. These include Tape-In or Injection Tape hair extensions. But don't worry, we have plenty other hair extensions to offer which are easy to manage even if you exercise daily! In this case I would advise to go with either Hollywood Weave, Ultra Tip or Mini Tip hair extensions.
To determine which one of the following would suit your hair the most - we look at the thickness and length of your natural hair. Hollywood weave is suitable for all hair types. This versatile fitting method allows us to use different thickness of weave to suit each individual client. If your hair is fine texture we would recommend to use Ultra Tip hair extensions and for medium thickness and above Mini Tip Hair Extensions are great for those who prefer individual strand hair extensions. All of these are completely reusable so after three months you don't need to throw your hair extensions away like it used to be, we can remove it and reapply back to the root just like brand new set.
Now lets have a look at the length -
Once we have determined which fitting method is most suitable your hair and lifestyle we colour match your natural hair to extensions. We have a large range of shades available. These include basic one tone colours, mixed colours such as darker tones with highlights, balayage and ombre!
Hope this little blog helped to answer some of your questions. If there is anything you would like to know please comment below or email us. Thank you.
