Does my hair have to be a certain length for SKW extensions?
That depends on the length you desire to wear. Women with short hair (right above their shoulders) can wear SKW extensions in 14 or 16 inches .The extensions can be installed for volume instead of length.
If the clients’ hair is at the shoulder and below the length can extend past 16 inches, up to 18,20,22,24 inches.
Is this method medically approved?
Yes! This is the only method created by a medical provider.
What if I’m allergic to metal beads?
The SKW 2.0 method does not use metal beads. Sarah created a plastic product (SKW slider) to replace the bead to prevent any harm to the client. This is still a threaded track.
If I’ve had trouble in the past such as stress spots or traction alopecia can I still wear SKW?
YES. Both SKW methods were designed to significantly lessen the chances of that occurring.

Yes. I will custom color the extensions for a seamless blend.

How often is a move up appointment?
Move ups are at the 6-8 week mark but nothing longer as that can cause damage to your natural hair.
