All about our Hair Extensions

Elaine Stewart Hair and Beauty is a salon based in Wigan town centre. We offer a range of services and treatments, including massage and holistic therapies such as Reiki, along with the usual hair and beauty services. Today, we’re going to tell you everything you need to know about our hair extensions.

Balmain Hair

The brand we use for hair extensions is Balmain Hair, where we can make your hair bigger and better than ever before. Whether you’re looking for more length or more volume, this brand has got it both. The range is really extensive, meaning that we are able to provide extensions for every hair type. Using 100% real hair, Balmain Hair are one of the leading extensions brands, with over forty years of experience, and with distribution in over fifty countries.


Using human hair comes with some ethical questions, where some companies source hair from individuals who believe they are making a sacrifice to their God, and other people reap the rewards. Balmain Hair does source hair from South East Asia, where hair is processed by factories in Asia to achieve the product used in these hair pieces and hair extensions. Balmain Hair has therefore consulted with suppliers to draw up sourcing and quality guidelines called the ‘Supplier Standards of Engagement’, to ensure the human hair business they deal with is fair and ethical. They stress that they only work with partners whose business practices are in line with their policies, morals, and ethical values.

Fashion House

When you buy into Balmain Hair extensions, you’re getting so much more than just hair. Balmain is also famed for its fashion house, established in 1945 by founder Pierre Balmain. The fashion house has grown from Paris to across the globe, including the USA, Europe, and South Korea. After being reincarnated by Christophe Decarnin, Olivier Rousteing is now the current head designer, keeping the much-loved signature Balmain looks, but with his own twist.


The benefit of using human hair over synthetic hair is not only that it is more realistic in appearance, but also that it is versatile. This means that it is possible to style and colour in exactly the same way as your natural hair. It may be that you have naturally fine hair and would like to increase the volume, or perhaps you’ve noticed your hair is starting to thin as you get older, or maybe you just want to treat yourself to a voluminous new look for a special occasion. Whatever the reason, you will enjoy long-lasting hair extensions when you come to Elaine Stewart, where you can cut, colour, curl, and style into a look that suits you.


With our Hair+ programme, we work with women to help them cope with daily hair challenges, including thinning hair, fine ends, and hair loss. Through the Hair+ programme, we provide solutions to common hair problems, and work to really solve them and help our clients achieve hair styles they never thought they could have before.

Special Occasions

For some, hair extensions become part of a daily routine, but for others who don’t feel they can maintain them on a day-to-day basis, they are perfect for a special occasion, where you want to stand out from the crowd. You may want to use them as part of our Teenager’s Treat as part of a pamper package, or one of our Prom Packages. Hair extensions are also available as part of our Wedding Packages. All well as hair styling for the bride, these can also include the bridesmaids, guests, and even the groom. Just be aware that extensions are sold separately, in addition to the packages. Whatever the occasion, make it a day to remember with fabulous hair, so you can treasure the memories with some fantastic looking photographs.
