It’s been a long time coming, but BOTTEGA is finally offering hair extension services! If you are looking for a great salon to install your extensions, look no further than BOTTEGA. We will be offering hair extensions from Bellami, Babe, and Hotheads. All of which are 100% human, Remy hair. If you are curious about pricing, process, and additional extension services continue reading this article!
The cost of hair extensions varies depending on the length, brand, and type of extensions. Clients can choose between straight or wavy hair in many different lengths between 14’’ and 24’’. For those who want hair between the lengths of 26’’ to 40’’, it will need to be custom ordered.
It should be noted that 50% of the extension service fee will be required to book an installation appointment and order hair extensions. The time it takes to install extensions will be dependent on the method and amount of hair being installed.
At Bottega, we don’t recommend that clients get bump up’s. As such we will not perform bump up’s on any hair that is damaged or weak. However, we do offer them in select cases. The cost for this service is determined by the extension method.
Besides installation, BOTTEGA will also be offering other extension services. For instance:
- A hair wash and scalp treatment with a blow dry and style ($60)
- Weft and Extension Malibu C Replenish Masque for take-home ($11) or in-salon treatment during installation ($30)
- Custom colour matching (consultation required)
Sew in Wefts
Sew-in wefts require no heat, chemicals, or adhesives to achieve the highest coverage! This makes them ideal for clients with thick hair. Wefts are great for adding volume and length without causing lots of damage. To install wefts, they are sewn onto a beaded foundation that is created with your natural hair. In addition, wefts lay flat on the head and can be matched to almost any thickness of hair. However, with this in mind, they aren’t ideal for those with thin or fine hair.
At Bottega, we offer two kinds of sew-in wefts: volume wefts and hand-tied wefts. Volume wefts are machine-tied wefts that can be double or triple-stacked and staggered for volume, length, and discreteness. On the other hand, hand-tied wefts are the best when it comes to being discreet, lightweight, moveable, and comfortable. Hand-tied wefts are done in single layers that can be stacked for volume and length.
Sew-in wefts need to be re-applied every 6-9 weeks. This means removing old extensions and reinstalling a new beaded base in a slightly different location to protect the integrity of the natural hair. Reapplying in this way prevents damage and matting that can happen with bump up’s/move up’s. Clients with sew in’s will be able to reuse extension hair 3-5 times or 10 months to 1 year, with proper care.

I-Tips or Microbeads
I-Tips which are also known as microbeads are an individual bond method. They are installed by clamping an extension strand (it’s actually a small bundle, not one strand of hair) and a small section of your natural hair inside a silicone-lined or micro-lock bead. The extension is tipped with polyurethane, creating a cushion of protection for your natural hair inside the bead.
Microbeads allow for movement in the hair and are good for those who wear lots of up-dos. I-Tips are versatile since they can be used by any hair type to add length, and volume, fill in thin areas, or add pops of colour!
I-Tips need to be re-applied every 6-9 weeks. This means removing old extensions and reinstalling a new bead and extension in a slightly different location to protect the integrity of the natural hair. Reapplying in this way prevents damage and matting that can happen with bump up’s/move up’s.

Tape-ins are a high-coverage hair extension method. They are installed by sandwiching a section of natural hair between two pieces of taped extensions. Clients with finer hair have the option of using a single-sided extension. Tape-ins will lay extremely flat to the head and are highly discreet.
It should be noted that extensions must be removed and reinstalled every 6-8 weeks. This involves the removal and re-installation of the taped sandwiches in a slightly different location to protect the integrity of the natural hair. If hair is placed on the same base strands, it can cause damage and matting. Hair can be reused for 8-10 months with proper care.

Fusion/ Keratin Bonds
Fusion bonds are keratin protein-based tips with added silicone to act as a barrier that protects the natural hair when bonded around it. Installation involves using a low-heat tool to soften the keratin and form the bond around the natural hair. This method is completely customizable and can be cut down into micro pieces to add volume and cover
thinning of hair. Furthermore, it allows 360-degree movement of the hair for optimal styling.
This method lasts anywhere from 3-5 months (15-22 weeks) depending on the length and density of the hair. The hair used in this extension method is not reusable which means that new hair is needed every install!
