GENERAL QUESTIONS ABOUT HAIRDREAMS HAIR LENGTHENING AND THICKENING SYSTEMS
What is the difference between “Hair Creations” and “Hair Extensions”?
The term "Hair Extensions" has received a negative connotation due to problems such as breakage and damage to hair. This is due to the fact that many stylists are not educated on the hair extensions available in the market. They do not know the proper ways to attach the extensions, to care for them and to safely remove them from one’s own hair. Many hair extensions in the market also offer low quality grade hair strands that look and feel fake, which generates the worst results for achieving great hair styles.
Hairdreams calls their full range of hair lengthening and thickening systems "Hair Creations" to convey the vast range of creativity stylists can achieve using the Hairdreams systems. Hairdreams relies heavily on educating stylists on its systems and thus educating their clients on properly caring for their Hairdreams hair. Hairdreams systems are designed for the most gentle wear and application, comfortable feel, luxurious, natural-looking hair, easy removal and instant re-application. Hairdreams is also recognized for its premium, unparalleled 100% real human hair quality. Hairdreams strict guidelines for hair refinement and quality control are unsurpassed in the industry creating the most coveted hair highly requested by top stylists and high profile celebrities worldwide.
Hairdreams Hair Creations go above and beyond just "Hair Extensions!"
Where does the hair come from?
Hairdreams uses only 100% real human hair that has been procured all over the world in adherence with strict ethical principles.
Do I have to wait for a specific length?
After the consultation with your hairdresser, Hairdreams strands are selected according to your desired hair style, your own hair color or your desired color, and your hair structure. Some of our Hairdreams Partners have a large selection of Hairdreams strands in their salon and are able to apply your extensions immediately after your consultation. If your salon does not have any Hairdreams hair in stock, it can order hair and receive it within 24 hours.
How does the Hairdreams hair creation (hair lengthening and thickening system) work?
Hairdreams hair is delivered to your hairdresser in very fine strands. These strands have a connection tip, called a “Bonding” point at the very top. This “Bonding” point gently connects the Hairdreams strands to your own hair and is applied close to the roots. The Bonding points are gently warmed up and thus softened, at which point the Hairdreams hair is applied and securely wrapped around your own hair strands. This process is repeated strand by strand, until the hairstyle of your dreams is created. Our Hairdreams Partners work with various Hairdreams lengthening and thickening systems.
The Laserbeamer NANO System is the most innovative method to create natural fullness and length in a very gentle manner.
With this method, Hairdreams 100% real human hair is combined with patented NANO Technology that “invisibly“ integrates into one‘s own hair. The additional hair strands are permanent which means they become a natural part of your own hair.
The Laserbeamer System is a tried and tested method of hair lengthening and thickening in a fast and gentle way.
Hairdreams Quikkies are tiny, self adhesive strips that are made from special ultra-light microfiber gauze with premium 100% real human hair strands attached to it. It allows for fast, gentle and long-lasting integration into your own hair.
With the manual method each strand is applied individually by hand. This system allows for individual customization to your own hair.
How Long Does the Application of the Strands Take?
The amount of time it takes to apply Hairdreams strands depends on the current hair condition of the client and the final look they want to achieve. For example, shorter hair lengths require more time for strand application than a simple hair thickening service. Partial hair lengthening and thickening services, e.g. bangs, is a faster process. First and foremost, the amount of time required depends on the number of strands that need to be applied.
The Hairdreams system that will be used is the next determining factor in terms of time. Using the manual method, where each strand has to be applied individually, requires on average a time frame of 1.5 hours for an average hair lengthening service. A comparable hair lengthening service using the automatic Laserbeamer method will take about a third of that time. It’s also important to keep in mind other factors that will affect the time for Hairdreams lengthening and thickening services such as washing and drying hair, as well as any possible coloring, cutting and styling the hair.
How much does a Hairdreams hair creation (hair lengthening and thickening) service cost?
The cost for Hairdreams hair creation (lengthening and thickening service) widely depends on a few factors. First, it is important to determine what hairstyle you want to achieve, and what condition your own hair is in. With this information, your hairdresser can decide on how many strands, what length, which texture and which hair quality (7 Star or 5 Star) are going to be used for your customized Hairdreams hair creation.
The cost also depends on what your hairdresser charges for the application, as well as any additional services such as washing, cutting, coloring etc.

WEARING HAIRDREAMS HAIR CREATIONS
Does Hairdreams hair creations (hair lengthening and thickening) look natural? Are the strands visible?
Hairdreams Hair Creations look and feel completely natural and are not noticeable to people who don’t know that you are wearing them. Your Hairdreams Specialist matches the Hairdreams strands to your own hair’s texture and color, the correct application of the strands ensures a perfect result.
However, a certified Hairdreams Partner will not perform a hair lengthening or thickening service if he or she thinks that they
will not be able to achieve natural-looking results. For example, if you have a short hair cut and you would like to get a very long hairstyle, this will most likely not be possible as it will be difficult to create a natural-looking transition between your own hair and the Hairdreams Hair. Your hairdresser will bring this to your attention and explain what he can do instead, offering you more realistic results.
With the wide range of Hairdreams hair colors, you will find the perfect strand for any color type. In most cases, your salon will use two to three hair color shades for completely natural hair color results.
If you would like a special hair color shade, which is not available in the Hairdreams Color Ring, then your Hairdreams Specialist can have the desired hair color custom-made by Hairdreams, or he can color the Hairdreams strands himself in his salon.
Will I feel where the strands are attached to my own hair Or, will I feel the bondings?
All Hairdreams Bondings are very small and therefore hardly noticeable. The diversity of the size and shape of bondings allows for a perfect fit of your Hairdreams strands to your own hair.
How are the strands removed?
Your hairdresser uses the Hairdreams’ Removal Solution to remove the Hairdreams strands. This is a special solution which allows for extra gentle removal. The Removal Solution is applied to the Bondings and penetrates the Bonding material. The material quickly becomes malleable and softens, so the strands can simply slide off your own hair. Your own hair and the Hairdreams hair strands are not damaged in any way by the Removal Solution.
The easyStripper enables quick and easy removal of hair strands in comparison to manual hair strand removal methods. It does not rely on arm power and is gentle on the joints of the person removing the strands. In addition, it creates minimal tension on the client’s scalp, is stress-free and more comfortable for the client.
We recommend a Tidy-Up Cut every four to six weeks in order to ensure quick and easy removal. During this service, your own hair which has naturally shed, but gets stuck in the Bondings, is cut at the top in order to avoid matting. Your hairdresser will charge his normal hourly rate for both the Tidy-Up Cut and the Removal of the strands. It is best if you clarify those details before you get your Hairdreams hair creations.
How long do the Hairdreams hair creations (hair lengthening and thickening) last in my hair?
The wearing period of Hairdreams hair creations depends on your individual hair growth, the texture and volume of your own hair and your desired hairstyle.
The Bondings slowly move away from your scalp corresponding with your natural hair growth. Therefore, the Bondings will be more visible after about four to six months, and should be removed.
If you used Hairdreams 7-Star Quality hair strands, then you can re-use the hair for another two wearing periods. This service is called Rebonding, and allows you to wear your hair for up to 1.5 years.
Can the Hair Be Re-Used?
Yes, Hairdreams 7-Star hair can be re-used up to two times. This service is called Rebonding. This is only available with the original Hairdreams 7-Star hair – it is extremely healthy that it can be worn for several wearing periods without causing problems.
After removing the strands, your Hairdreams stylist will send the strands back to Hairdreams. They will be serviced with new Bondings and are sent back to the stylist for reapplication.
It is important that your hairdresser keep the Guarantee Cards for your 7-Star strands and send them to Hairdreams along with the hair. The Rebonding Service is only available for original Hairdreams 7-Star hair.
CARE AND STYLING
Do I Have Any Limitations When Wearing Hairdreams hair creations (hair lengthening and thickening)?
You don’t have to limit your lifestyle in any way. Thanks to the secure Bondings and the excellent, premium quality of Hairdreams hair, you can pursue all your daily, normal activities as usual.
Long hair always requires more care than short hair, and this is true when wearing Hairdreams hair as well. For example, if you exercise vigorously on a regular basis and thus have to wash your hair more often, then you have to take especially good care of you Hairdreams hair in order to enjoy the Hairdreams quality for a long period of time.
Are Hairdreams hair creations (hair lengthening and thickening) difficult to maintain?
You need to take care of your Hairdreams hair creations as you would your own long hair. We have a special Hairdreams Hair Care Line, which is specially formulated to meet the needs of Hairdreams 100% real human hair strands. Your Hairdreams hair is no longer connected to your scalp and therefore is not naturally supplied with conditioning nutrients. The Hairdreams Hair Care Products target this natural deficiency and balance it. When used regularly, your Hairdreams Hair will retain its beautiful shine, optimal elasticity and brilliant color.
Your Hairdreams Salon will recommend the right combination of products for your hair type.
Can I Style And Color the Hair as Usual?
You can style your hair as usual using your blow dryer, flat iron or curling iron. The same is true for other processes such as perming or coloring. Having a Hairdreams hair creations (lengthening and thickening services) does not mean that you are stuck with one particular hairstyle.
However, chemical processes like coloring, tinting or perming can drastically change the texture and surface of the hair, thus overstressing it. You should only allow authorized Hairdreams Salons perform such services in order to get the most out of your Hairdreams hair creations.
Brush your hair several times a day from roots to ends using our special Hairdreams Brush in order to prevent tangles.
When blow drying, be careful not to set the blow dryer too hot, and to keep it at a distance of at least 20cm (8 inches). Extreme heat can damage or dry out your Hairdreams Hair.
Beauty Sleep: Tie your hair or put it in a braid before you go to sleep. This is how you avoid tangles with your Hairdreams Hair.
EFFECT ON YOUR OWN HAIR
Are Hairdreams hair creations (hair lengthening and thickening services) damaging to my own Hair?
A Hairdreams hair creation is very gentle and does not involve chemicals, which ensures that your own hair will not be damaged.
The various strand sizes make it possible to customize hair lengthening and/or thickening for your individual hair type. Furthermore, your own hair is protected by the Hairdreams strands, because the Hairdreams strands wrap around your own hair. We call this the “Shoulder-Effect”. Shoulder length hair usually gets split ends and breaks at the level where your hair touches your shoulders. Thanks to the fact that the Hairdreams strands wrap around your own hair, your natural hair strands can recover during the wearing period and split ends or breakage are further prevented.
Regular follow-up service is a crucial requirement for the perfect condition of your Hairdreams hair creation. This includes Check-Up Service, Tidy-Up Cuts etc. at your Hairdreams Salon.
Our Hair Care Line, which is specially formulated for our Hairdreams hair, is very beneficial for your own hair as well.
Will the Hairdreams hair creation (hair lengthening or thickening service) make my own hair fall out?
Hairdreams reinforces the protection of your own hair. Therefore your hair stylist is careful to ensure that your Hairdreams strands are attached to the same amount of your own hair.
With the range of Hairdreams′ strand sizes your Hairdreams hair creation (lengthening and thickening service) can be ideally customized for you. The only way you may experience hair loss is if your hair is overstrained because these guidelines were not followed.
REQUIREMENTS FOR A SUCCESSFUL LENGTHENING & THICKENING SERVICE
Do I Have to Meet Certain Requirements in Order to get a Hairdreams hair creation (hair lengthening and thickening) service?
With Hairdreams hair creations, full hair with a minimum length of 8-10cm (3-4 inches) is enough to disguise Bondings and for the Hairdreams strands to naturally blend with your own hair.
We recommend our Microlines Integration System for very thin and fine hair.
Can I get a Hairdreams hair creation (hair lengthening and thickening service) with extreme hair loss?
Since extreme hair loss is often caused by medication or hormonal imbalances, the hair loss has to be stopped before Hairdreams strands can be applied. Otherwise we cannot guarantee that the bondings will hold to the strands of your own hair.
