Beauty Works Launch New Jen Atkin Collection at Pro Hair Live Manchester 2016

For me the highlight of Pro Hair Live Manchester 2016 was Jen Atkin launching her Range for Beauty Works. I'd come to see the semi-permanent Invisiwefts be launched on the Beauty Works stage by Jen Atkin herself and watch her apply and style these extremely promising Remy hair extensions in Manchester Central!

I was lucky enough to meet the lady herself and find out all about her invisible hair extension systems. The wefts come in 18 inches and are 28” wide holding 80 grams of remy hair and they retail at £233.99 to £277.99. They are for professional application and will require tightening every 4-6 weeks.

Sable & Lock are currently offering hair extensions model discount with our apprentice Joy whilst she quickens her skills. Hair extension maintenance in Manchester is reduced by 50% and maintenance on Beauty Works Wefts is now only £25. Joy is fully qualified & insured in micro ring & bead weave methods & loves long hair! We recommend the bead weave method as it used no heat, glue or sewing which can strain the hair in many ways. It also means never again the dreaded snagging & breaking of weft thread!

The Hair Extensions

These wefts are the most discreet available on the market, crafted onto a fine silk base that disappears into the hair line when colour matched. They are the most malleable, fine weft hair extensions I've seen to date. When fitted using the micro bead weave method the Jen Atkin Invisiwefts lie flatter than other weft extensions & are extremely comfortable and lightweight. Each Invisiweft holds 80 grams of coloured cuticle correct 18” Double Drawn hair, guaranteed by Jen Atkin & Beauty Works to remain lush for 9 months with Beauty Works after-care products available here.

The Hair Used To Make The Beauty Works Jen Atkin Invisiwefts

The Jen Atkin Beauty Works Invisiwefts use high quality Remy Hair using genuine European hair that goes through a stage-by stage process to ensure beautifully crafted hair extensions. Sourced from genuine virgin ponytails, the hair is hand-selected from the healthiest Virgin human hair. It is then Double Drawn, meaning the Shorter hairs are removed by hand, leaving perfectly uniform hair to create thicker, fuller hair from root to tip.

Beauty Works Jen Atkin Invisiweft Hair Extensions

If you wear hair extensions and colour your hair you will know the pain of disguising a 5 week growth when your weft hair extension tightening appointment isn't for another 7 days!

With the rooted collection by Jen Atkin, girls with darker roots can disguise the demarcation line, meaning the weft disappears into the dark natural stretched root appearance, meaning you only need colour the T-section of your hair between hair extension maintenance appointments!

Jen Atkin & Beauty Works have outdone all previous hair wefts with the rooted Invisiweft for those who colour their hair and wear hair extensions. I for one am very much looking forward to purchasing 2 Bel-Air 80 gram Invisiwefts to fit as micro ring wefts.

These are the longest guaranteed hair extension wefts by Beauty Works, they usually give a wear life of 6 months but they have upped the quality for the Jen Atkin Collaboration. The Remy hair is gently processed & coloured leaving it is cuticle retained down the entire shaft. Because the protein bonds are not damaged, moisture can attach to them meaning glossier hair extensions for longer.

The design, production and high quality elements of the Jen Atkin Beauty Works Invisiweft make these hair extensions the best available wefts in the mass manufactured market today. If you would like to try Jen Atkin Beauty Works Weft Hair Extensions and live in the Manchester area we have fantastic hair extension model offers available with up to 40% off.

The now classic Beauty Works Remy extensions in Balayage by Jack Howard

Colour expert Jack Howard's Balayage collection with Beauty Works are Remy hair extensions at their best. International colourist Jack Howard has worked his colour magic on London’s A-list including, Poppy Delevigne and Suki Waterhouse. Jack last year revealed his unique range of Balayage shades designed specifically for salon professionals consisting of five of the most sought after Balayage blends.

Designed to maximize volume, Beauty Works GOLD double weft is a revolutionary new weft design unique to Beauty Works. Our thickest hair extension weft yet, compacting 150g of Double Drawn Remy hair onto a flat double wefted lace design. Tried and tested by respected hair extension experts in the industry our unique lace design allows the hair to be double wefted onto a lace weft to create super thick extensions with more hair but less weft.

Double drawn:

The double drawn hair is ultimate luxury, specifically processed by hand to ensure all hair lengths are the same length, resulting in thicker, fuller looking hair from every angle. Virgin hair is hand selected and all shorter hair lengths are removed by our technicians. Guaranteed perfectly uniform hair which is balanced and gives the illusion of beautiful healthy hair.

The hair:

Beauty Works GOLD Remy Hair is the finest quality of 100% Remy human hair extensions. Hand selected and cuticle retained our virgin hair is specifically processed to ensure that the protective layer of the cuticle remain intact and are facing the same direction from root to tip. Ensuring natural shine and vitality allowing the hair to behave tangle-free throughout its lifetime. Reusable for multiple salon applications our Remy hair can be reapplied and will last many months with the correct aftercare and maintenance.

Beauty Works delivers only the best in hair extension technology. Designed to be more secure and stronger than other weft extensions on the market, our unique double weft prevents shredding and allows salon professionals to apply weft extensions even faster with the GOLD Double weft system.

Jack Howard:

“Each weft gives that lovely soft feel, rather than the stronger demarcations we have seen on the market up until now. This range shows my signature softer balayage colours in the finest quality hair available to salons and stylists. Many celebrities opt for the balayage colour technique as it gives an expensive looking finish - this range allows the customer to have the look”

Beauty Works Hair Extensions in Manchester

Beauty Works was founded right here in Manchester in 2010.

Beauty Works was founded in 2010 by Penelope Cheshire right here in south Manchester! The city of Manchester has never been a shrinking violet in industry and Pen and the Beauty Works team are smashing the UK, European and US market. Beauty Works are now the hair market leaders in temporary extensions, building notoriety with quality hair and increasing their sales 20 fold since they launched just a few years ago! I think what they do is great and I love Beauty Works hair extensions because of their thick, glossy double drawn gold wefts and constantly updated ranges.

Featuring in Look Magazine, The Daily Mail, Glamour and Teen Vogue to name a few, Beauty Works hair extensions have been awarded Look Magazine’s “Best Hair Extensions” and crowned at The Hair Awards 2013, 2014, 2015.  Loved by extension artists, models, stylists, girls on the street and celebrities alike. Michelle Keegan, Dannii Minogue, Nicole Scherzinger, Olivia Palermo and Victoria's Secret models are just some of the heads they have enhanced.

When it comes to temporary hair lasting 6-12 months you really can't go wrong with Beauty Works. I love the transformations constantly uploaded by my fellow extension artists to Instagram, check them out for inspiration & the transformations Beauty Works hair extensions are capable of.

I've tried every hair grade out there from YAKI (horse/cow...i was duped... I was 16!!) to synthetic, to Indian REMY and I always wear virgin hair these days, but I'm a raw hair convert and may actually have a virgin hair extension addiction! I like a very subtle look day in day out that doesn't turn heads but just looks naturally healthy, as opposed to the look you can get with a Beauty Works Weft which is pure princess hair...that I'd really love on the weekend! For wedding or a special night out.

If you look at the price difference and the length of time the different hair lasts Virgin hair extensions do actually work out more cost effective in the long run, but it just depends what you prefer and that's why I offer both.

There are pros and cons to both types of hair extensions and I'll list some here to help you if you are trying to decide which kind of extensions to get.
