What kind of hair do you offer – synthetic or natural?
In its offer, Hollywood Hair has only natural hair. We do not purchase synthetic hair.

We also run a hair purchase, where you can come and have your hair cut and sold.
What type of natural hair do you have in your offer?
Our offer includes Slavic lux and virgin hair. Slavic hair is dyed, available in various shades in order to match them to natural hair (your hair) in the best possible way. When it comes to virgin hair, it is usually collected from children – this type of hair is softer and non-dyed.

The shortest available lengths are approx. 35 cm, the longest – even 100 cm. Click here for more details. The longest variants are less accessible, so it’s best to call us and ask about the availability of the length you are interested in before going to our hair salon.
Can the extended hair be freely styled and dyed?
Yes, our hair can be dyed, styled, curled and straightened. Remember, however, to provide your hair with thermal protection – with the use of a heat protection spray. We do not recommend to bleach hair.

Yes. The HH Keratin mini bondes method we use also allows to thicken hair without changing its length. We often take difficult cases, such as reconstruction of sides and a fringe.

I’m worried that hair extension can be harmful to me
If you’re not sure whether hair extension is for you (you’re worried, scared) – before making an appointment consult a trichologist, dermatologist, psychiatrist or another specialist doctor, who will issue a decision and give consent.
What method do you use to perform the treatment?
HollywoodHair uses the HH Keratin mini bondes method. It is our original method, in which we manually form small, strong and very resistant bonds out of best quality natural keratin. Keratin does not destroy the structure of hair, therefore the bands are reusable. For more information about the HH Karatin mini bondes method click here.

Depending on the expected thickness, the treatment lasts in average 2-3 hours. However, the treatment may last even up to 6 hours, all depends on your expectations. Request a consultation to learn more.
Do I have to wash my hair before the treatment?
We always ask you to come to the salon with clean hair, before the treatment it is once again cleaned with special cosmetics. After the treatment you shouldn’t wash your hair for at least 48 hours.
