Passionate About Hair

Anthony James Hair Salon, Halifax

Wedding/Special Event Hair

We know that at any special occasion, your hair is as equally important as your dress and make up.  Working with you and your theme, we will create a style you and the occasion.

Starting with an initial consultation to discuss ideas, styles, accessories and the event itself at our salon, we will then do a trial before the event itself.  This guarantees that on the day, your hair looks great, accessories stay in place and you can simply enjoy yourself.

For the day itself, we can come to the venue where you are getting ready so all you have to do is relax and enjoy the pampering. Whether it’s a wedding, reception, party or prom, the Anthony James design team can work around your plans to make you look amazing for your special occasion.

Hair Extensions

Hair extensions at Anthony James Halifax are supplied by Great Lengths. Great Lengths are the only hair extension company to obtain and process their own human hair. The hair is sourced from the temples of India as part of their rituals and the revenue from the purchase of the hair goes back into the community. Great Lengths Hair Extensions are 100% ethical and 100% traceable.

With over 55 colours including 17 blondes, plus pastel and jewel shades, in a range of textures, your hair extensions will be as natural as your own hair.

Anthony James apply the hair extensions using a specially formulated polymer bond which has a pH value of 5.5, so they are kind to your hair and scalp. The bonds are virtually undetectable and comfortable to wear.

I would just like to say a massive thank you to you all.  I came into the salon after having an awful experience with another stylist when having Great Length Hair Extensions fitted, your team were kind and amazingly helpful, I was made to feel at ease and were completely honest with me at all times.  Kristy did an amazing job of fixing my hair and giving me the look that I wanted. I would like to thank you all again, I have now found a hairdressing family that I can trust 100%

How to Care for your Great Lengths Extensions

The hair extensions supplied to Anthony James are 100% natural human hair and when maintained correctly behave just like your own hair. A little more time and care is needed, but the investment is worth it and you’ll be impressed with the quality results.

The average person loses between 50 and 150 hairs a day. When hair extensions are applied, some of those loose hairs remain trapped in the bonds so regular maintenance is essential to prevent hair matting. A small percentage of bonds may also be lost during the life of the extension. This is perfectly normal and, if kept, can possibly be reapplied.

Caring for your Hair Extensions

Washing – Do not shampoo your hair for at least 48 hours after hair extensions have been applied to allow the bonds to set. Shampoo and Condition your hair at least once a week. Finish by rinsing your hair in diluted Final Rinse Anti-Tap Solution to restore the pH balance of your hair and scalp.

Drying- Always dry your hair thoroughly, starting at the bond, as it is the most vulnerable when wet. Do not towel dry the hair with a scrubbing motion. Instead, use a blotting motion and wrap the hair in a towel to remove the moisture. Always blow-dry your hair on a cool temperature.

Brushing – Flat headed, soft bristle brushes are the most suitable. With small sections of hair, gently brush from the bonds to the ends. On a regular basis, separate the bonds gently with your fingers to prevent matting. Then brush gently over all your hair extensions.

Sleeping – We recommend you tie your hair in a loose pony tail to prevent tangling while sleeping.

Exercise – Great Lengths Hair Extensions suit most lifestyles, but may need a little extra care in these circumstances: regular swimming, particularly in the sea or chlorinated water, regular sauna or steam room use, excessive aerobic exercise. After these activities, use diluted Final Rinse Anti-Tap Solution to restore your hair and scalp to its natural pH balance. Remember to always dry the bonds thoroughly.

Styling – Straighteners and heated tools can be used; however they must be kept away from the bonds. Serums should only be used on the lengths and ends, not the bonds.
