“Hollywood glamour has come to Washington, D.C.”

Christophe sources his hair extensions from Great Lengths International, which uses 100% human hair collected from sacred temples in India. Indian women preserve their hair and offer it to temples as a religious sacrifice and form of gratitude and respect when they marry.  The temples then sell the hair and the money is invested back into the community.  The importance of gathering temple hair is that it is platted before being cut, which leaves the cuticle intact and all the hair is facing in the same direction.

While other methods use techniques such as welding, waxing, gluing or knotting, which strain and very often damage your hair to a high degree.  Great Lengths is based on a much more gentle principle: modulating.  Great Lengths has created an extremely high-tech method of bonding between the strand and your own natural hair. This point of attachment is composed of a synthesized keratin protein polymer whose molecular structure mimics that of human hair.  It is activated by a Great Lengths ultra sound applicator that bonds the strand with your own hair, resulting in a resilient, natural feeling and easy to care for design. Most important of all, this patented attachment of Great Lengths does not compromise the quality of your natural hair and can be easily removed by an expert.

The introduction of Great Lengths to Christophe’s service menu now gives the creative freedom to add length, volume and dimensional color effects that simply aren’t possible otherwise.  Great Lengths has graced the heads of Hollywood’s most elite style icons, including: Sienna Miller, Jenny McCarthy, Drew Barrymore, and Charlize Theron.  Christophe is committed to offering you the latest and highest quality technology the professional beauty profession offers and we are thrilled to be able to bring you Great Lengths services.
