Say Lula Salon Offers Longer Hair in Shorter Time with Balmain Extensions
San Diego, California, USA - One of the biggest complaints (and limitations for most women) in getting hair extensions
is that the process is expensive and time consuming. Many high-end extension applications can cost upwards of $1500 and can take over
5 hours. But Balmain Paris has created a new line of human hair extensions that make getting longer, thicker hair more affordable.
The DoubleHair line of human hair extensions offers customers a chance to have a head full of longer
hair and more volume in as little as 35 minutes. The revolutionary design of the extensions means that a trained stylist can apply
the equivalent of 18 “traditional” hair extensions in only 5 minutes. The extensions are reusable (up to 2-3 times) and come with a
6-month guarantee when you use the Balmain Aftercare products as directed.
DoubleHair extensions are made using 100% high-quality human hair and come in a wide range of natural
and bold colors. The various models of DoubleHair extensions range in length from 25 cm (10 inches) to as long as 60 cm (24 inches).
Because the extensions are human hair, they can be custom-colored to match any shade or create any look you desire.
Say Lula Salon in downtown San Diego is the exclusive carrier of these Paris-imported hair extensions,
and the salon intends to promote the fast application time and affordability of Balmain’s DoubleHair.
Say Lula is located in San Diego’s East Village neighborhood and boasts a team of bold, knowledgeable
stylists who create a groovy place to relax and allow individual beauty to unfurl. The salon offers state-of-the-art coloring, hair
extensions, make-up and consultations in their warehouse-meets-art-gallery setting. Owner Lisa Telepman says, “At Say Lula, our stylists
are image makers who believe that fashion, hair and lifestyle are one package.”
To find out more about the Balmain DoubleHair extensions, visit Say Lula Salon at 955 South 16th Street,
San Diego, California or visit the Balmain Paris website at www.balmainhair.com.
