We totally understand why you may question this. However in order for us to provide you a high standard of service, we need a consultation.

Is my hair long enough for hair extensions
In order to have hair extensions which look fabulous! Nya Impressions recommends your natural hair to be at least 4/5 inches long.
What type of hair do you provide?
Nya Impressions Hair Tech (N.I.H.T) offers Angel Remy, which is double drawn. Virgin, Russian & Russian Slavic in single drawn.
What do the terms Remy, Virgin, European, Russian & Virgin Remy hair mean?
Remy hair is cuticle correct, which means that the hair has been harvested with all cuticles going in the same direction. The pony tail has been carefully cut from the persons head and is tied securely at the top, to ensure that the hair is in the correct direction.
Virgin Remy hair is the finest quality hair and all the cuticles are correct, facing the same direction. It is unprocessed – meaning no chemicals have been used prior to being cut from the donors head. It is very expensive and is of a high grade quality. Suitable for all hair textures & types.
Eurasian & European hair is the best quality and is expensive, therefore it is harder to source. It feels finer and silkier and is most suitable for ladies with European hair textures.
Russian hair is of a high quality it is seen as the ‘platinum standard’ of hair which is reflected in the price. It also feels finer and silkier and is most suitable for ladies with European hair textures.
All of the hair used at Nya Impressions are of a HIGH standard which is durable and long lasting.
Do I really need hair extension maintenance?
Yes! Nya Impressions HIGHLY recommends you attend your maintenance appointments. It is very important for us to check every 4-6 weeks that your hair is in good condition. At the maintenance appointments we check that your hair isn’t matting, damaged, and that you are following good aftercare. We also re-tighten and re-do any hair that may have loosened or slipped out. This is to ensure that your hair extensions are well maintained and looks fabulous!
Can Nya Impressions maintain my hair if I have had it fitted by another hairstylist or Hair technician? Can I provide my own hair extensions?
Am afraid not. We do not maintain any other hairstylist or hair technicians work. We suggest you go back to the person who fitted your hair extensions and allow them to maintain the hair. Then if you prefer, we can fit hair extensions for you.
We can if you require us to uninstall hair extensions. However as we do not know if any damaged was caused by the install or maintenance, we ask that you sign a declaration form.
We do allow clients to bring their own extensions, however we are not responsible for the quality of the hair you provide.
What does the terms ‘Maintenance’ & ‘Refit’ mean?
Maintenance appointment involves checking the positioning of the hair extensions, repositioning them in certain areas and topping up with new hair if needed.
Refit is a full removal of the hair extensions and refitting it with the same hair extensions.
I want to provide my own hair, how much do I need to bring?
On average you need about the same thickness of hair extensions to your own hair ratio. If your hair is long enough to tie into a ponytail. Measure the hair extensions to your ponytail, the same or more thickness is appropriate.
