Q. I have been told Hair Extensions are very expensive?
A. Celebrities and TV & Film Stars frequently pay $3500us to $5500us for hair extensions. Depending on where you live, some service providers in Australia & New Zealand have been know to charge $2000 to $3500.
At Bardot Beaute we have regular repeat clients coming from Tasmania, Melbourne, Sydney, QLD, and New Zealand not only because they believe that our technique is unique and worlds best practise but they can travel to the Gold Coast, have a weekend or 2 night stay over, return home and still not have experienced the high cost of having the service done in their local area.
Although we charge a reasonable price for our service, we do not overcharge like many of the other service providers who have been doing extensions for less than 5 months.
Unfortunately, the saying “You get what you pay for”has no bearing when it comes to hair extensions. Beware: there are unskilled applicators entering the marketplace. Every day we recieve desperate pleas for help from the unwary who risk serious consequences to their hair, self image and self esteem.
Q. How do I know if I am a suited candidate for hair extensions?
A. A one on one consultation is required, however you could be a good candidate provided you do not have alopecia or a history of any hair disorders & not currently on medication which could be detramental to your growing hair.
Q. Will the colour of the Hair Extensions be matched to my own hair?
A. Yes. With over 15 years experience, Bardot Beaute has a fool proof procedure to insure a colour match to your full satisfaction.
Q. How long will my hair extensions last?
A. It all depends on how fast your hair grows. Generally, if you have slow growing hair, extensions can last up to 6 months. If you have medium to fast growing hair, extensions will last up to 4 months. The only reason we say 4 to 6 months is because the extension joins start to become visible and that is when it is time to take the extensions out and re-apply.
Q. Can I re-use the extensions?
A. In most cases it is possible to re-use the majority of the hair extensions. This is largely dependant on how well you follow the after care instructions.
Q. Can I have the extensions permed if I want curly hair?
A. Yes. Although you must be aware this process is damaging to your growing hair as well. Further information is available.
Q. Will Bardot Beaute Hair Extensions damage my own hair?
A. No. The procedure we use is gentle, painless and totally risk free. We have over 30 years experience ensuring clients keep their hair in good condition. However, due to the popularity of hair extensions, we recommend that you do your research. Don’t be talked into any service and always get several opinions and quotes before deciding who will give you the best service and after sales support everyday thereafter.
Q. If my growing hair has previously been coloured, can I continue to re-colour my roots?
A. Yes. No problems as long as the normal procedure is followed.
Q. I have curly hair but I prefer to continually straighten my hair. Can I use a hair straightener on the extensions as well?
A. Yes. However, you must avoid touching the extension joins with any hot appliance. So make sure you avoid the joins.
Q. What if I no longer want to continue having the extensions if my hair has grown to the desired length?
A. Make an appointment and we can remove the extensions for you, this service includes a nominal fee, however you should never attempt to remove the extensions yourself. If you cannot attend Bardot Beaute’s Botique, phone us and we can refer you to a service provider closer to your area.
Q. How can I get some idea of how much my extensions will cost?
A. We can give you an approximate cost if you provide us with 4 photo’s from the waist up (front view, left & right view and back view).

A. Absolutely, you are encouraged to use a “loop brush” which provides unique and ongoing benefits from your scalp to the ends, we recommend brushing several times a day.
Q. Can I leave my hair to dry naturally after shampooing and conditioning?
A. You must diligently insure you hair is dried from your roots to below the joins, however, from below the joins to the ends can be left to dry naturally. Always before lying down or going to bed you must insure your hair is thoroughly dry and either put into a plait, braid or pony tail. This procedure will help prevent any tendancy of your hair getting tangled during sleeping periods.
Q. Where does the hair for extensions come from?
A. The hair we use for our extensions is from the temples of India. There are several textures that match our client’s perfectly and the hair has not previously been subjected to hair salon practices or chemicals of any kind (virgin remi hair) Unlike India, Asian hair is unique and really only grows as one texture. Therefore, we get hair specifically from Asia for our Asian Clients..
