We spoke to the expert Albena Atanasova, hairdresser and owner of the prestigious hair salon in Sofia, Art Forum. She creates 100% natural human hair extensions which are of high quality to fit perfectly on your natural hair. Albena says that the flixy hair extensions are a revolution in hair extension methods.

– It is extremely easy and you do not need a hairdresser. There are 3 simple steps:

  1. Place your flixy hair extension on your head.
  2. Use a comb to remove our hair over the thin cord.
  3. Brush your hair and you are done!

Tape-in Hair Extensions and Our Innovative Technology for Hair Bleaching http://artforumhair.com/2017/12/17/tape-hair-extensions-innovative-technology-hair-bleaching/ Sun, 17 Dec 2017 21:07:23 +0000 http://artforumhair.com/?p=334 The tape-in hair extensions can be used to extend the hair as well as to add extra volume to your own hair.

We at Art Forum Hair offer mainly tape-in hair extensions with lengths 50 and 55 cm. Of course, we can also offer you tape-in hair extensions with length and color to your preferences.

How do we achieve a variety of colors?

When we bleach or change the tape-in hair extensions color we again use our own innovative technology for hair bleaching. The method is unique because it keeps the cuticle – the outermost part of the hair shaft. On one hand, this guarantees the strength of the hair and, of course, ensures a much longer life of the hair. With this method it is possible to achieve any desired hair extensions nuance. Very good results have also been obtained with the modern ombre effect. Furthermore, we use only the highest quality virgin human hair.

Our customers have recently pointed out the main advantages of the tape-in hair extensions. They said that the hair is extremely flexible and natural-like.

1. Flexible

The tape-in hair extensions which we offer are extremely flexible compared to the other hair extension methods. One of the reasons for this is that the tape-in hair extensions are put near the base of the hair. Our clients share that they feel comfortable while wearing and brushing their hair. This is also true when they wash and dried their hair. In fact, the maintenance and the care for them are the same as for your own hair.

2. Natural-like

Two main factors are important for the natural-like hair extensions. First, to be made from real human hair and second to have the same color as your own hair. If you truly want flexible and natural-like hair extensions, the tape-in hair extensions are the best solution for you! If you want to check it for yourself, please visit our Art Forum Hair salon!

Bleaching Hair Extensions - What Do We Need to Know http://artforumhair.com/2017/10/17/%d0%b8%d0%b7%d1%81%d0%b2%d0%b5%d1%82%d0%bb%d1%8f%d0%b2%d0%b0%d0%bd%d0%b5-%d0%bd%d0%b0-%d0%b5%d0%ba%d1%81%d1%82%d0%b5%d0%bd%d1%88%d1%8a%d0%bd%d0%b8-%d0%ba%d0%b0%d0%ba%d0%b2%d0%be-%d1%82%d1%80%d1%8f/ Tue, 17 Oct 2017 05:45:54 +0000 http://artforumhair.com/?p=318 Today various hair extensions methods are available, as well as a variety of hair extensions colors. When talking about hair extensions colors, it should be noted that usually the high quality Indian hair is available in dark colors. Mostly, the Indian hair, which is used for hair extensions, is black and dark brown color. Almost always the hair extensions colors do not coincide with our natural hair. Quite often, after we have used hair extensions we want to change the color of our hair. This requires color-dyeing of the hair extensions and mainly to bleach them.

Here are our 3 basic tips for bleaching hair extensions:

  1. Please never try to bleach your hair extensions at home with hair dye or other products. The same is also true if you want to make hair extensions with ombre effect. You risk to damage your hair and you will hardly get the desired color.
  2. Do not try to color dye hair extensions which are made of synthetic materials. Only 100% natural hair extensions can be colored with conventional products.
  3. Only hair extensions made of healthy human hair can be bleached. Bleaching hair extensions will get better if the hair has not been chemically treated (colored) or thermal (straightened or curled). This is called untreated (virgin) hair. This hair even after bleaching keeps its strength and long life.

We know that each woman’s hair is unique. For this reason, first of all Art Forum Hair hairdressers have created their own innovative technology for hair bleaching. The method is unique because it keeps the hair’s cuticle saved. As a result, this hair has a very long life.

With this method you can achieve any desired nuance of your natural hair. This will ensure the perfect blending with your natural hair.

Furthermore, hairdressers from Art Forum Hair use only the highest quality 100% natural Indian hair! For more information and discussion please visit our Facebook page!

Wedding with hair extensions http://artforumhair.com/2017/06/08/wedding-hair-extensions/ Thu, 08 Jun 2017 18:52:42 +0000 http://artforumhair.com/?p=277 Every bride desires to look beautiful and irresistible on her wedding day. Hair is one of the details that clearly distinguishes the nice bride from the incredibly beautiful bride. So, the hairstyle for the biggest day of your life is one o the most important things. At the same time, your natural hair not always has the appropriate length, color and density for the glamorous wedding hairstyle. That’s why the hair extensions can help your hair to be longer, fuller and of course to look completely natural.
Take a look at our tips for hairstyle on your wedding day!

Select the best quality hair extensions

First of all, make sure that you choose the best quality, natural, human hair extensions and go to a hairdresser who has a lot of experience in this field. Altogether, you have to choose the most suitable for you hair extensions – in terms of length, color and quantity of hair. It would be good if the hair salon offers its own assortment of hair extensions and you can purchase and put them in the same place.

Which hair extension method is the best for you

We have already written about the hair extension methods. We at Art Forum Hair always personally approach each of our clients and we can not say which method is best for the wedding hairstyle. However, experience shows that the tape method with sticker is mostly used. It is discreet compared to other methods and can be worn for 2-3 months. The stickers are waterproof and you can swim and walk on a beach during your honeymoon.

When is the best time to put hair extensions?

The experts recommend at least 2 weeks before the wedding day. This time is enough to get used to your new vision, wedding hair trial and change the hair color if you want.
With hair extensions you can have the perfect hairstyle on your most special day!

What are the main human hair extensions types? http://artforumhair.com/2017/05/10/main-human-hair-extensions-types/ Wed, 10 May 2017 18:36:23 +0000 http://artforumhair.com/?p=270 One of the latest surveys in the beauty industry reports that in the recent years people who want to use hair extensions have increased by more than 40%. At the same time, the human hair extensions are ever increasingly demanded and preferred all over the world. Indeed, natural hair extensions have the same structure as your hair, blend very well with it and their life is much longer than the synthetic ones. There are three basic types of human hair extensions that you can choose from. We will start with the highest quality hair.

Virgin human hair

Virgin human hair is the best quality hair on the market. This hair is obtained from women or young girls who have never treated their hair chemically (color-dyed) or thermal (curling, straightening) with a curling iron nor a hair straightener. Also, very often this type of hair has not been dried with a hairdryer and it is carefully kept under a headscarf. This is the highest grade hair extension and of course the price is the highest. You can do everything which you do with your own hair – color-dyed, straightening and curling.

Remy Human Hair

Almost all online stores claim that they sell only Remy human hair. What does this mean? When the hair is Ramy all hairs in the extension are arranged in the same order from the top to the root and the hair growth is preserved unchanged. Generally, the remy technology guarantees a longer life of the hair extension and protects the hair from entanglement. The lowest quality human hair follows.

Non Remy human hair

Unfortunately, in 90% of the cases the claim that the hair is Remy is an advertisement trick to justify the higher price of the hair. The non Remy hair is usually collected from hairdressing salon’s floors and it is impossible for each hair to be properly arranged (the roots in one direction and the ends in other direction). Very soon the hair extensions get tangled and become practically unusable.
We hope we have been useful to you and you could already distinguish the different human hair types!

What are Hair Extensions Made of http://artforumhair.com/2017/04/16/%d0%be%d1%82-%d0%ba%d0%b0%d0%ba%d0%b2%d0%be-%d1%81%d0%b5-%d0%bf%d1%80%d0%b0%d0%b2%d1%8f%d1%82-%d0%b5%d0%ba%d1%81%d1%82%d0%b5%d0%bd%d1%88%d1%8a%d0%bd%d0%b8%d1%82%d0%b5/ Sun, 16 Apr 2017 16:52:43 +0000 http://artforumhair.com/?p=250 In the recent years the hair extension market has grown incredibly fast. It offers everything – from cheap artificial extensions from synthetic or animal fibers to 100% human virgin hair extensions with the highest quality. According to the materials used hair extensions are made of animal hair, synthetic and human hair.

Animal hair

The most popular type of animal hair extensions can include yak and horse hair. These hairs are much thicker and harder than the human hair. If the extensions are made only of them they are easily recognizable in appearance and touch. If there is a high percentage of human hair it is a bit more difficult. Typical for the hair of these two animals is that they take and hold the color very well.

Artificial synthetic hair

The artificial synthetic hair vary greatly in appearance and quality. Mainly synthetic polyester fibers are used for its manufacture. Recently, some Chinese manufacturers offer synthetic hair extensions that can stand the lower temperatures of the hair straightener and curling irons for a short time. The difference between human and synthetic hair is that the human hair has a natural shine. The synthetic fibers have a very strong and untypical shine. On the whole, the synthetic hair extensions are the most affordable, cheapest and least wanted in the world.

Human hair

The biggest advantage of the natural human hair extensions is that they look just like your hair. They have very long life with proper care. The price of human hair extensions is higher than the synthetic ones. The most human hair used for extensions is obtained from Asia (India, China) and Europe.

We hope that we have been helpful to you and you can recognize natural from synthetic hair extensions. Our advice is to buy hair extensions from hairdressers salons with a good reputation which offer only natural human hair with high quality.


How to Care for Hair Extensions in the Summer http://artforumhair.com/2017/04/03/care-hair-extensions-summer/ Mon, 03 Apr 2017 04:51:29 +0000 http://artforumhair.com/?p=242 Оur hair is exposed to stress with the seasons change and the new temperature conditions.

The main “stress” factors that influence both our natural hair and the extensions are the harmful UV rays from the sun, the sand on the beach, the salt water of the sea and the chlorine and other chemicals in the swimming pools. So during the summer it is extremely important to care for our hair and to avoid its dryness, thinning and loss of shine. Luckily, there is not much effort required or expensive procedures involved. Our mini program of 3 tips will help you for the beautiful look of your hair extensions during the upcoming hot summer!

Avoid hair products with alcohol

Our first tip is to avoid hair styling products that contain alcohol during the summer. These sprays together with the sun will dry your hair further. Although our hair extensions (Art Forum Hair) are made from 100% natural human hair with the highest quality, they do not moisturize as your natural hair from the scalp. Therefore, it is good to use moisturizing hair products with UV protection, hair conditioners and masks that are suitable for your natural hair.

Avoid staying with wet hair for long

It is good to dry your hair with a towel after each wash or if it is possible to use a hairdryer. You should not stay long with wet hair. It is advisable to keep your hair braided or in a low bun while swimming in the sea or in the pool to help avoid tangles. Also if you have ceratin bond hair extensions you have to avoid ponytails.

Wash your hair after swimming

During the summer, usually after swimming it is necessary to wash your hair more often. For the high quality hair extensions this is not a problem. You can also use a special extension-friendly brush. It has fiber that slide and do not harm the hair. However, you can use a regular brush to untangle the ends.

As you can see the hair extensions require almost the same care as well as our own in the summer.

3 Things You should Know Before Getting Extensions http://artforumhair.com/2017/03/23/things-before-extensions/ Thu, 23 Mar 2017 20:33:18 +0000 http://artforumhair.com/?p=224 Make sure that your hairdresser has sufficient experience with hair extensions Re...]]> Today a lot of ladies, and not only, use hair extensions. The next three practical tips are for those of you who will use hair extensions for the first time.

Make sure that your hairdresser has sufficient experience with hair extensions

Recently, almost every second hairdresser puts hair extensions. Though, this does not mean that he or she has sufficient knowledge and experience in this activity. We advise you not to trust the dubious beauty salons with specialists who have watched 5 videos on youtube how to put hair extensions. These hairdressers may not be able to fit them properly. Also, they are not able to advise you which hair color or hair extension methods are the best for you.

For this reason, your first task is to investigate whether your hairdresser has enough experience before you go ahead and accept their advice. You can get such information and recommendation from friends, acquaintances, internet.

Only natural human hair

For all of you who want to have beautiful hair and perfect vision it is important to use only 100% natural human hair. Only with this hair you are able to do the same thing such as your natural hair. It can be can color-dyed, curled or straightened. Of course the price for these extensions is high but the hair and the skin are some of the “accessories” which we wear with us every day. That’s why you should not make compromise with the quality.

Try clips-in extension first

If you want to put hair extensions for the first time, clips-in method is probably the best option for you. As the name suggests this method uses clips (hairpins). With their help the extension is securely attached to your natural hair. Also this method is extremely practical, fast and convenient because the hair can be removed and back attached frequently.

One thing is sure – simplicity and negligence in the hairstyle are modern. Overall, again the straight and the curly hair are two competing trends.

Sleek straight hair

You should use hair straightener because shiny and straight hair will be a hit in 2017. The slogan is the smoother hair, the better. Additionally, you can use liquid crystals and serums to cope with your unruly hair.

Curls – from several waves to curly hair like “springs”

As аn opposite to the sleek and straight hair there is an alternative tendency for curly hair. If you have slightly wavy or curly hair you will be adorable in 2017. Again, use appropriate styling products for curly hair. According to a lot of experts the corkscrew curls look good for several days without special care for them. The curly hair is the perfect trend for all ladies who do not spend much time for their hairstyle.

Rapunzel’s Hair

The third trend that emerged this year is long hair in all variations and hairstyles. How to achieve this effect?
Do not think that if you eat only fruits and vegetables, wash your hair with quinine shampoo, use hair mask with egg yolk, olive and coconut oil you will have very long hair. All of these Grandma’s recipes have some positive effects but you should be aware that they do not do miracles. The truth is that not everyone’s hair root can nourish hair with a length of 80 cm.

So don’t worry if in you have not cut your hair at all and it is still short. The hair extensions are the best opportunity for you. If you want to see how you will look with long hair just come to our salon at Zlatovrah Street 23. We offer the largest variety of natural Indian hair with the highest quality.
