Medan City, Indonesia is the home of Steve Salon de Coiffure, which brings us this collection of Asian hair makeovers that are the height of glamour and show the dramatic changes possible with today's advances in beauty technology.
Five of the six hairstyles feature hair extensions to add length and fullness to the silky natural hair. The looks combine textural styling elements to create unique styles and use color to enhance the shapes and shine of the hair or to create styling accents.
All the looks are bold, and the styling features volume and wave to give a flattering silhouette to the hairstyles. Whether short and sassy, or long and leonine, the hair is always a show-stopper.

Coiled Hair Extensions

The creative team at Steve Salon takes Ervida's long, shag style and brings her new life and liveliness with a warmer, nutty-brown color and added length and texture. The upper layers around the crown and top sections are given deep, choppy texture, and styled to create bend and begin the blending process into the extension hair.
The extension lengths are predominantly styled into long coiling strands that spill forward across the shoulders and chest. The curls keep their definition, which mimics the texture in the upper sections and shorter layers of the hair. The long, steeply angled fringe helps to balance an otherwise round face.

Hair Extensions with Waves

Agin's triangular face is her strongest facial element. The design team at Steve Salon helps to balance this by adding length to her asymmetrically cut hair. This allows them to reshape her silhouette and create a balanced look.
Using the rich, spicy red color, the hair is able to warm up and provide a healthier glow to the skin of the face and upper body. The fringe is reshaped into a broadly curved horizontal line and the whole of the hair is styled into smooth, silky waves that fan outward at an angle away from the lower face to broaden the appearance of the jawline.

Super Long Hair Extensions

Ellissa begins as a lovely girl who simply needs some pizzazz. Her hair is short and cut in an overly simple contour. The silhouette is flat and lifeless. To combat this, Steve Salon adds in super long extensions both for length and to fill the hair out.
The result is a lush, long head-full of beautiful curls. The center parting emphasizes the symmetry of her features, while the long, sinewy tresses emphasize height and make the neck appear longer and more graceful. The overall look is one which makes Ellissa every inch the movie star.

Curly Hair Extensions

Long curling hair extensions for fine and flat hair
Grace comes to the makeover with shoulder-length hair that is fine and flat, hanging lank against the neck and shoulders. Her round face isn't flattered by the long side-swept fringe. To correct this, the Steve Salon team reshapes her fringe into a curved line that drops deeply along the sides to frame the face.
Added to this are long, curling extensions that create a full, spanning effect in the lower lengths of the hair. The top section and fringe are segregated by color and texture from the lower lengths with the warm cinnamon shade acting as a focal point and accent for the style, in contrast with the "s-curls" of the lower sections.

Short Asian Hair

Diana presents the makeover with what may seem the least significant change. However, the already gamine short cut of Diana's hair is reworked with added texturing, to create a choppy finish that responds well to the high-volume styling.
Her broad face needs elevation and the top section is styled upward in choppy tendrils to balance that need. In spite of the boyishly short length, the pixie style remains feminine due to the softness created by the texturing.

Hair Extensions for Fullness

Santi starts out with a basic, blunt cut and blocked-off fringe. The lines of these elements reinforce the width of her face and the breadth of her mouth, making her face appear heavy in the lower sections.
The design team adds some extensions to give fullness and a little length and blends the hair into a full-volume style with large bouncy curls. This, combined with the drawn-back fringe, creates an extended oval shape for the silhouette which balances her features nicely. The repositioned focus draws attention to the eyes instead of the mouth and helps to create a more flattering look overall.
