At Bravadas, we offer a variety of hair extensions in human hair and synthetic hair. There are many forms that hair extensions come in, so it’s best to meet with our highly trained staff to determine which type will work best for you.
The perfect extensions will blend seamlessly into your hair and give you all the length and volume you want. There are so many customizable options available. The right one will depend on your lifestyle and needs!
Extensions mostly vary by attachment style and fiber type. Our experts can walk you through all the options and the perfect style for you.
1. Attachment Style
Extensions can be a more permanent solution or a removable solution. If you’re looking for a more permanent setup, tape-in seamless extensions will the perfect. These are real human hair extensions that are installed with cutting edge bonding that is harmless to your natural hair. It only takes about 45 minutes the get your new hair and with proper care, they’ll last 3-6 months with about 3 installs. These are real human hair from Babe and come in various lengths and colors. They can also be additionally dyed to match your hair.
If you want extensions but don’t want to keep them in permanently, halo or clip-in extensions may be the perfect option for you. Halo extensions are offered from Halocouture. These are real human hair extensions that attach around your head on a thin, transparent “halo” that rests on top of your head, with the hair laying on the back of your head. Instantly glam up your look without any damage to your hair. Pull hair from the top of your head over the extensions and go!
Clip-in extensions are similar, but attach at the scalp by the roots of your hair. You can style your hair to cover the attachment areas. Both of these are great to switch up your look with adding volume, length, and even color. Go from having short hair to long or having one color hair to ombre in a flash! These are perfect if you want to switch up your look without damaging your natural hair or paying the price of a monthly salon visit.
2. Length and Volume
Length is also a way that extensions differ. Extensions come in lengths from 8 inches to 22 inches! If you are wanting longer hair, you’ll want to get extensions that are a little longer than what you want, then have them cut and shaped to blend in with your natural hair.
If volume is what you are going for, there are different shapes of extensions that can be put in your hair at the crown or sides to give you that extra “oomf” you’re looking for.
3. Fiber Type
We offer extensions in both synthetic and human hair options. Permanent solutions are only available in human hair options. With synthetic options, you’ll need to style your hair first and then put the extensions in. Synthetic options will hold their style and be less maintenance, but won’t last as long. Human hair options will need extra care to keep them in top shape, but will last longer and can be dyed and styled to match your hair.
The style of extension that is right for you depends on your lifestyle and needs. Tell our experts what you’re looking for and we’ll pull some pieces for you to try on! We can cut the pieces to fit you perfectly and if they’re human hair, adjust the color to be perfect for you.
Our experts will walk you through your options and find the perfect one for your needs. They’ll teach you how to securely attach and care for your pieces.

“My stylist is Mequeda and she never fails me! She have styled 4 of my wigs and each one is better than the first. If you need a wig styling please don’t hesitate to visit her at the Fairfax shop. You will love her attention to detail that she gives. She won’t stop until you look your best.”
“I was diagnosed with stage 3 Fallopian tube cancer in May 2015. I’m currently doing my 3rd 6-months of Chemo. This is the second time for me to go through hair loss from chemo. In addition, I have gone through two 5-week radiation treatments. I bought this Eva Gabor wig during my first chem, 4 years ago. It perfectly matches my original hair color and style. I am coming into the Fairfax VA Bravadas to find a second wig to get me through chemo and hair loss again. It’s a constant battle to maintain my identity in the battle against cancer. But when I look in the mirror, I still see ME….not a cancer “victim.” More importantly to me…so do my children, grandchildren, friends and loved ones! Many thanks!”
“Thank you for contacting me and giving me the opportunity to show other woman, that it is possible to look good and feel confident again, because of the products and styles you provide.
