Have you dreamed of having longer, fuller hair? Today's selection of human hair extensions are very versatile, lightweight and they look completely natural.  If you are growing out a short style, have thin hair or desire more volume and fullness, hair extensions are a game changer. And because we only use the highest quality human hair, our extensions can last 4 to 6 months with proper care - without any damage to your hair or scalp. And because they will look so natural, no one will know that you're wearing hair extensions!

FACT: Hair Extensions Will Completely Change Your Look

Sure, hair extensions can add dramatic length and that's a dream come true for women who have trouble growing their hair long. But some women are more interested in adding youthful volume around the crown and forehead. It's amazing the difference a few packs of hair can make. Be prepared for lots of compliments. "You look great, did you go on vacation?"

FACT: When it comes to hair extensions, there is no one size fits all.

The right hair extensions for you will depend on the length and strength of your hair, the desired look you want, and your budget.  Other factors to consider include your lifestyle, how you'd like to style your hair on a daily basis, and the amount of required upkeep.  Do you like to wear your hair pulled up in a high ponytail? Do you spend a lot of time swimming or working out? Can you commit to a few extra minutes each day for proper care?

FACT: Hair extensions vary by attachment method and depending on your hair type and condition, one may be better for you than others.

Tape in Hair Extensions are attached using a medical grade adhesive and can be applied to your natural hair close to the scalp.

Fusion Hair Extensions are fitted with a keratin bond and are attached to your hair with a small thermal wand.

Hand Tied Weft Extensions use a natural beaded row method where each weft is hand sewn onto a track of tiny beads.

The size and density of the wefts will vary depending on the attachment method. And depending on the manufacturer, the quality, price and selection of color choices will vary. That's why it's so important to seek a hair extensions professional that can match your hair and your desired style with the right hair extensions.  For example, hand tied extensions are lightweight and are suitable for most women. But if you have thin hair and want to add volume around the face, then your stylist may suggest tape in extensions. They are very gentle to install and remove AND they lie flat against the scalp, making them ideal for use around the hairline. 

FACT: The best time to ask questions about hair extensions is BEFORE you get hair extensions!

We want you to make an informed decision, which is why we suggest you take advantage of our Free Consultation at Monaco Salon in Tampa. We will assess your hair, give you style ideas, discuss the pros and cons of the different options, and review how to take care of your hair extensions in between appointments.

Ask About Credentials

If you are serious about hair extensions, ask a lot of questions. An experienced stylist will have before and after pictures of their hair extensions work, and written feedback from previous guests. Ask them about their training and which certifications they have received. Your stylist should be willing to explain the options that will work best for your hair type and be able to give you a price for the service. Your stylist should prepare you for how to care for, style and maintain your extensions once you leave the salon.

FACT: At Monaco Salon, you won't get off-the-rack hair extensions or cookie-cutter service.

We customize a look just for YOU, and no one will know they're extensions.

Kaysie has been doing my extensions for over a year now and I wouldn’t go anywhere else in the Tampa area. I even moved farther from the salon and still make the over 30 minute drive to see her! She is a perfectionist and never lets me leave feeling anything other than gorgeous! I’ve had color by both Melissa and Damaris and they are exceptional at blonde color!! You do not want to miss out on this salon!

I had the absolute best experience with a team of experts. I just moved to Tampa and was looking for the same Los Angelas luxury hair salon that I am accustomed to. Krista, the owner assured me that I will be in great hands. She was spot on from the first minute I walked in. Marissa removed my bonded extensions with care and precision. Kat colored my hair with her intuitive skills. Krista finished me with beautiful extensions that I will be in love with for months. I am so happy that I found this salon and drove the hour to get there. I found my hair salon in Tampa!!

I've had extension before but I was so impressed by all the videos I watched about their techniques, the style, how classy and professional everything look, and OMG, everyone is so so so beautiful. From the moment I walked in the salon everyone was attentive, friendly and welcoming. I felt at ease and comfortable. The day of the appointment was a very special one for me, and the royal treatment from the salon's staff was number one. Krista did my extension and wow, she is amazing. Her wise advise and attention to detail are at a very professional yet friendly. She is genuine and very sweet, and so so very beautiful inside and out. I will recommend the salon to anyone. I moved to South Florida and I still come back to Tampa to get my hair taken care of at the salon.

These guys are MAGIC. I have been going to Krista for a few years now and I am so happy I made the decision. As a transplant from NYC, I previously used to travel to back to have my extensions re-done. My only regret is that I didn’t find her sooner! Krista and her team does a beautiful job time after time. I have extremely short (and very fine!) hair and have been doing the Great Lengths extensions for over five years. Krista has made my own hair healthier and strong enough to continue to have the extensions for my wanted volume and length. I would HIGHLY recommend Krista for anyone looking to get extensions as she is the best in class. Thanks to Team Monaco for keeping me looking and feeling beautiful!

Looking for Hair Extensions in Tampa, South Tampa, Clearwater, St Pete, Largo, Brandon or Lutz?

If you are considering hair extensions, do your homework. Many salons  promise to be the “best” or the “official” hair extension salon so we can understand how difficult it can be to find a true hair extensions expert in the Palm Harbor, Tampa, Clearwater areas.  We will be very upfront with you.  We'll investigate your needs and make sure your hair is right for extensions, THEN make suggestions. We will talk very openly about your budget and all of the time and expenses you can expect to have them put in, maintained and removed. Depending on whether you are adding length, fullness, colored highlights, or just dressing your hair up for a special occasion –or adding crystal strands, feathers, or bright accent pieces – the cost can vary greatly. Blending and matching hair extensions to your hair color and highlights is an ART, one that most stylists have not mastered.
