Great Lengths at Matthew James;
The ultimate choice for hair extensions

Do you crave more voluminous hair? Perhaps you wish for a little extra length after experimenting with a shorter look? Tempted by a striking colour but don’t like the idea of the associated maintenance?

Great Lengths hair extensions offers you the chance to have the long, thick, healthy looking hair you have always wanted without the risk of damaging your natural hair in the process.

Their gentle cold fusion process creates small flat and cylinder bonds that attach single strands of hair for extensions that look and feel completely natural. Using virtually no heat, the cold fusion process utilises ultrasound technology, resulting in no damage on application. Which is particularly beneficial to those with finer, damaged hair.

A variety of colours and textures to suit

Great Lengths hair comes in 55 different colours which can be blended to create the perfect match for you. In addition hair is available in a range of textures which are permed to order so if your natural hair has a soft wave to it, your extensions will match. The use of Great Lengths ‘flow strands’ can also be used to create the perfect bleach free ombre look in any shade you desire!

The finest extensions available

The hair itself is 100% pure, virgin, human hair which is ethically sourced. It is cuticle aligned, which prevents knotting and is processed with the greatest of care to protect the integrity of the hair.  The keratin bond is made from a polymer compound whose molecular structure is very similar to that of human hair and respects the same properties. The bond replicates the movement and behaviour of your hair and in doing so applies a gentle but strong hold with the least damage.

Up to 5 months wear

All prices are on consultation and are dependant on the length and thickness you require. During this consultation our Great Lengths specialist will colour match your hair to your extensions and advise you on every aspect of your new style, including aftercare and maintenance. One application of Great Lengths extensions can last 5 months when the homecare procedure is followed correctly.

Great Lengths are now the only hair extension product we use and offer in salon. In addition to offering a high quality product whose benefits outweigh other extension systems, as a company, Great Lengths are completely transparent about the source of the hair they use and the process involved in bringing it from their donor to the salon. It is this transparency of Great Lengths that lead us to question the ethics of other hair extension companies we have used in the past and as a result we no longer do business with them. We invite you to view the Great Lengths ethicality policy (see below) for more information on this matter.

Are you ready for the ultimate transformation?

Great Lengths Ethicality Policy

Where does Great Lengths hair come from? This question is posed by women all around the world who are considering hair extensions and their ethicality. We are justifiably dubious about the origin of the hair used for the majority of extensions. Most companies cannot guarantee the origin, quality or traceability of their hair as it is usually purchased from a third party and not sourced directly by the extensions company. Great Lengths, however, offers the highest quality 100% real human hair that is 100% ethically guaranteed.

Unlike all other extensions brands available in the UK, the company sources and processes every single strand, meaning they absolutely guarantee the origin, journey and treatment of the hair. Great Lengths hair is 100% traceable making it completely unique in the extensions industry.

Great Lengths source their hair from the Hindu Indian temple Tirumala where the traditional religious ceremony ‘tonsuring’ is carried out. Entire families (men, women, children, grandparents) make the pilgrimage to the temple to have their hair shaven off as an offer of thanksgiving that is completely voluntary and often takes place before or after a momentous, joyful event. The hair is then legitimately sold to Great Lengths and a full time Great Lengths employee based in India ensures that the money which is given to the Temple is funnelled directly back into the local community to fund medical aid, educational systems and other crucial infrastructure projects. Great Lengths take every measure to ensure the sourcing, purchasing and processing of the hair are ethical and transparent.

They are the only extensions company to employ a full time team member in India to ensure their exacting standards and ethical policies are upheld.
