I dabbled in hair extensions for my 21st birthday. I spent about EUR600 on synthetic ones (not even real hair) & after a couple of week I was literally pulling my hair out. Because my hair isn’t 100% straight this was a disaster as I wasn’t able to use my GHD on my own hair as the extensions would get in the way!
Times have changed and human hair has become a lot more affordable, with specialist salons opening up in Dublin over the last few years, if growing your barnet seems like too much hard work why not check out South Dublin’s latest salon, Issonni by Emilia.
Emilia’s overall aim is to create hair that looks like you naturally JUST have a great head of hair. Trained in 10 different methods of hair extension application, including an exclusive system she has developed herself, Emilia is adamant that all Issonni hair extensions will be 100% glue free, 100% damage free, 100% reusable and consist of only 100% human hair.
An intimate and elegant studio that runs by appointment only, Issonni provides each client with privacy and comfort as they sit back, relax and watch a movie or browse the library of glossy magazines while having their hair applied.
