As today’s women dress their tresses, many are opting for fusion hair extensions to add the length and fullness they are seeking.


The trend’s attraction is due to the new technology that the fusion method, a technique that fuses hair extensions with a woman’s natural hair using a keratin extract, said Naeemah Johnson, a fusion expert and stylist and owner of the East Falls salon NBeauty Inc.


“New technology has changed the look and feel of hair extensions providing easier and safer methods of hair lengthening,” Johnson said. “This technique of hair extensions offers limitless hair design options, color transformations and adds new texture and new fullness options.”


In Johnson’s opinion, some women want to lengthen their hair without relying on hair extension techniques such as synthetic clip-ins, sew-in weaves, braid, cornrows, twists or locks


There are both hot-fusion and cold-fusion extensions, the former using heat, while the latter does not.


“With a fusion weave, you can wash your hair every few days or every week and use products like gels and mouse to style it,” explained Johnson. “The hair extensions will last three to four months before they must be removed.”



While the process can lead to some dazzling hairstyles, it isn’t cheap, Johnson admits. Due to the time that it takes to do fusion hair weaving, between four and eight hours, it may cost between $700 and $2,000, she said.


Johnson recommends that a trained and certified stylist perform this technique to avoid damage caused by improperly installed fusion hair extensions.
