Hair extensions go above and beyond just creating length and volume--stylists certified in Great Lengths hair extensions learn that extensions can be used as a tool: to create a hair cut, correct a hair cut, add chemical-free highlights, cover a scar or alopecia or to fill in a fringe.

In this how-to, Great Lengths Artistic Director Darren Brokaw, of J Brokaw Solutions for Hair in St. Louis, shows how he gave this bridal client a total hair transformation by combining the makeover power of hair extensions with the elegance of a special occasion style.

"This style is great for a bride that wants an updo that has an 'undone' appearance but still somewhat neat and will stay in place all day or night long," Brokaw says.
