Frequently asked questions
What is the Illusion Method?
Illusion by Jes Davis is the patent-pending advanced extension method that is both comfortable and convenient for a client. With no tugging or pulling, the installation method runs directional with the hair, and has minimal points of contact to keep the integrity of your hair. And most of all the beaded track is concealed - the beads and track are undetectable when worn up or down, no more beads popping through. Illusion allows you to wear your hair any way you want: up, down, a high ponytail, french braids and more and will feel light weight!
Why is the Illusion method so sought after?
What are hand tied wefts and why are they different than machine weft extensions?
SILX hand tied extensions are wefts of hair that are bound by hand to a very thin seam which allows them to lay flat against the head. When applied correctly, this makes your Illusion installation very comfortable and undetectable. SILX hand tied extensions are different than machine sewn extensions.
I'm a hairstylist and want to offer this technique to my clients; how can I get certified in the Illusion method?
Great question! Not only do I offer this technque to my clients, but I also educate for Illusion. If you're local to Lakewood, CA (LA County), contact me for a schedule of upcoming classes. Not in California? On-site training is also available shoud you decide to host a class in your own salon. Email me at email@example.com for more information.
What's the maintenance schedule look like for these extensions?
Every 4-5 weeks, a mini-move up appointment will take place. You'll arrive to your appointment with clean hair and I'll inspect the tracks and your scalp to ensure no tension spots are present. Then beads will be inspected and replaced as needed, any shedding removed, and wefts will be moved up and worn until the next 4-5 week mini-move up appointment.
How much does it cost?
There are several factors taken into consideration when determing the cost of your Illusion hand tied hair extensions. How long is your hair now? What's the density of your hair? Do you want just volume, or length, or both? Will you need to have your hair colored to achieve your desired look? A consultation is required to discuss all of these factors, plus talk about the care required to maintain hair extensions.
