Extensions by David Donsuki Townhouse Salon Upper East Side NYC

These days, extensions are revolutionizing hair fashion. Celebrities increasingly use them to achieve a noticeable change of look, which inevitably wows the public.

With hair extensions you can bring about changes in style that can be subtle or extreme — it’s just a matter of what you’re looking for. We offer a large variety of styling options that will not cause irreversible changes to your natural hair. You can opt for changes in length and thickness, and choose styles that are straight, curly or wavy.

Different Hair Extensions Methods:

Clip in extensions: Custom made to match your color and texture, they are the most temporary and re-useable type of extension. We will measure your head to create the right amount of new hair and teach you how to place the extensions.

Bonding: A method that is used for temporary extensions when you want to add length or volume for a few days or for a special occasion. This method works well for creating an up-do on someone with short or medium length hair. Your new hair is on a weft (hand knotted on a length of mesh fabric). Sections of the weft are attached in a row directly to your hair with special hair glue. This allows the hair to lie flat on the head. This method will last until your next shampoo and pieces can be removed with any oil base product or bond remover.

The sew-in method (some other names include wefts, integration, braiding or plating): For people who want to add length or volume to their hair for approximately 4 to 8 weeks. It is a great way to try out long hair while you grow out your own. Small cornrows are braided into your hair and then a weft of hair is sewn with a needle and thread to the braids. These extensions can be washed and styled like your own hair. Sewn-in extensions should be removed by your stylist for best results.

Strand-by Strand (also called micro link, fusion, cold fusion, keritin bonding, Brazillian or mico braiding): These applications provide the most natural and undetectable look of all of the extension methods, and can last up to six months with some interim maintenance. This type of extensions is most popular with celebrities. You can achieve a subtle or extreme change with this high-precision method. Individual strands of hair are applied to your own hair and are held with a special adhesive, which allows the hair to move just like your own. You can wash and style it or even pull it back into a ponytail.

Custom hairpieces can be made just for you. They are a fabulous quick fix for an instant touch of glamour any time you want. These pieces can be fitted exactly to your head to work with your precise hair color and texture.

Pony tails or simple attachments: Fun and fabulous pieces usually added with a big clip or band attachment.

Tape on extensions: This sheer method of taping the extension is a durable quick way to add length and fullness.
