Frequently Asked Questions


  • How do I book an appointment with Doris?
    Simply dial 214-552-7435. Doris is available to schedule a personal consultation where she will discuss your current style and desired end result. She will be glad to answer any questions you have about any part of the process.

  • Am I a candidate for Great Lengths hair extensions?
    The hair in the crown area (on the top of your head) needs to be at least three inches in length. Also, although rare, there may be health issues relating to your body and your hair that may prevent hair extensions from being an option. If you are unsure whether or not you are a candidate for hair extensions, call and talk with Doris.

  • How long do Great Lengths extensions last?
    Other than normal hair loss, your extensions will last approximately 4 to 6 months with proper home care.

  • Can you match my hair?
    Great Lengths extensions are available in 45 classic colors, from blondes, reds, and brunette tones to deep, rich black - and the Great Lengths company is still designing more colors. Combined with Doris's own expertise in coloring and cutting, you are assured of a perfect match!

  • How do I maintain my hair after I have Great Lengths hair extensions?
    Great Lengths extensions are treated much the same as your natural hair. Certain brushes, shampoos, and conditioning products are recommended. Putting your hair in a loose braid or scrunchee at bedtime helps discourage tangling while you sleep.

  • Can I swim and do normal activities?
    Yes, after the application is complete, you will receive a home care maintenance sheet so you will know the best way to care for your Great Lengths extensions.

  • Can my hair be colored at the same time?
    It is recommended that hair be colored or touched up a minimum of 48 hours prior to application of extensions.
  • Can Great Lengths hair extensions be styled with heat rollers, curling iron, or round brush?
    Yes, but make sure to keep the heat at least 2 inches away from the Great Length bonds.

  • Does anyone ever really get those wild colors?
    Yes! Anything from one wild, hot-pink streak hidden among your hair to a full head of shocking blue is possible. I can even match prom dresses!
