Versatility like using them to create fullness, strengthening, correcting haircuts, and adding colour and texture. He loves experimenting with tonal shades and varied lengths to create an edgy, textured look.

Its this versatility thats built a thriving salon business that has attracted an impressive list of celebrity clients through word of mouth and social media. Hadley is to share why Great Lengths hair extensions longevity and sustainability make it a good choice for salon businesses, and how it has benefitted his salon business as a whole.

To salons worried about the costs involved in offering Great Lengths, Hadley advises viewing it as an investment. Ethical and sustainable practices are also important to him and his clients.
