A. Phone 03 9866 8088 and speak directly with one of our hair extension specialists to book your appointment. Explain the extensions that you are wearing and what you would like done. Whenever possible we recommend a pre-appointment visit so that we can view your extensions and accurately asses the work to be done. There are many different methods on the market for extension installation and attachment, not all of them are re-usable and not all of them are safe for your natural hair.
This pre-appointment consultation allows us to assess your hair, hair extensions and scalp to make a professional recommendation for you; it also allows us to schedule enough time for you and to accurately quote the service. If you are unsatisfied with the hair extensions you are wearing from another salon if is also an opportunity for us to work with you to design a new look that will be perfect for you.
On your appointment day, come to the salon with your hair as natural as possible and washed 48 hours prior. Your Extensionist will remove or re-install your extensions or install your new look. If necessary, your Extensionist will recommend a Unique Shique Hair & Scalp Wellness Program for you. The program treats your hair and scalp independently, ensuring your natural hair becomes healthier, stronger, longer and looking great! This is very important if you have suffered any damage at the hands of an inexperienced Extensionist at another salon.
Your Extensionist will explain the care and maintenance for your extensions and supply you with educational material for your referral at home.

“I found Shique online and came with a specific hair loss problem. 12 months on, I have the same long blonde extensions, extensive regrowth, a healthy scalp and a totally different outlook on life. If there were before and after photographs you wouldn’t believe them and I have the Shique team to thank for that. ” Julia
“My hair extensions were the greatest gift to my life! I actually had no idea how feminine I would feel with long hair. I just love, love, love them! I found my hair was actually easier to manage, when drying, than my thin fly away hair and it actually sat perfectly with hair extensions.
I researched the industry quite thoroughly and found the process of Salon Shique was actually very unique and extremely professional looking. No one else has the quality of not just the product, but the installation as well.
My hair has been a great source of joy and it certainly lifted my self esteem. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to volumise a thinning head of hair, or someone who just wants an instant transformation.
You will just love yourself and your hair!” Liz
