hair extensions Gerard Paul - Ireland

Are you overwhelmed with many questions and options for hair extensions you’ve been considering for a while now? Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. Let us simplify it for you by providing all the information you need to know when deciding about getting hair extensions in Ireland.   

What type of hair extensions are the best for me? 

Gerard Paul searched far and wide to find the perfect extensions to offer our clients. We found the perfect match in Easilocks, which leave your hair looking natural, silky and lasts longer than most other brands. Easilocks are 100% human hair that will appear and behave like your own hair. As it is human hair, it can be styled using heated tools and straighteners and professionally coloured. Easilocks will get you to say goodbye to the bad-hair days. The best part is that nobody will notice the change, except for your new glow-up, if there isn’t a big difference in length. 

How long should my hair extensions last?

It depends on several factors, but having your extensions applied, checked, and maintained by one of our Easilocks technicians will prolong the life of your new hair to the second term beyond the initial 12 weeks. After-care products, which are meant to protect the hair and the bond, will also help to increase the life of extensions.

Are hair extensions bad for my hair?

Hair extensions that are of good quality will not harm your natural hair. Having a professional Easilocks technician apply your extensions and advise you on how to take care of them won’t damage your hair at all. In fact, extensions should protect your natural hair in the long run while also improving its appearance.

Can I style my hair extensions?

Most definitely! Hair extensions may be straightened, blow-dried, curled, just as you would do with your natural hair. Before applying heat to the extensions, it is always a good idea to use a heat protection product. You can even colour your new hair after consulting with our technicians. However, we always try to match the extensions’ colour with your natural hair. 

Can I get extensions with short hair?

For sure! Short-haired clients are the most common ones, and Easilocks is the best type of extensions for them. However, we don’t recommend getting hair extensions if your hair is shorter than 2 inches. Your technician will advise you on the best length and amount of extensions needed for your hair so that it can be stable and perfectly blend with your real hair. 

How long does it take for hair extensions to be applied?

Your technician will determine the amount of hair you need during consultation based on your personal hair type and the appearance you want to create. In most situations, we allow two hours for fitting and styling.

How should I take care of my hair extensions?

You’ll need to set aside some extra time to wash, dry, and style your extensions in order to keep them looking nice at all times. Your regular hair care products may not be suitable for your new hair, but your technician will advise you which products you should be using in order to get the most out of your new look.


Here are a few quick tips for taking care of your extensions:

  • Wash your hair in a single direction, do not ever wash your hair over a bath.
  • Swimming in chlorine should be avoided.
  • Wash your hair, after swimming in the sea.
  • When brushing your hair, start at the bottom and work your way up while holding the top section.
  • To avoid tangling, braid your hair or tie it into a ponytail at night.
