Milvali Salon & Cosmetics

You can look and will feel 10 years younger without surgery.

Milvali Salon & Cosmetics today announced they won "Best Hair Extensions" in the 2009 Best of Mind & Body Contest by the San Francisco Chronicle in the Hair Extension category. The salon has two locations in the Bay Area, downtown Mill Valley and in the historic Cudworth Mansion in the Cow Hollow area of San Francisco.

Deb Monti, co-founder of the salon, has been specializing in the art of hair extensions for over 10 years. She is professionally trained and extremely knowledgeable in color matching, cutting, blending, styling and applying hair extensions. Deb works with hair extensions exclusively, which allows her to be one of the best in the industry. In August 2008, Allure Magazine named her as one of the country's top extensionists. The salon prides itself on not using heat or glue on the hair to apply the extensions. There is no weaving, no wax and no chemicals, therefore no damage to the client's hair.

"Women think hair extensions are just for celebrities and models, but they're not. Any woman wanting added volume and length should consider extensions. You can still get beautiful highlights and in the matter of hours have glamorous, long, luxurious hair," said Deb Monti, Co-Owner of Milvali Salon & Cosmetics. "You can look and will feel 10 years younger without surgery."

Milvali Salon uses only the highest quality, natural human hair extensions. The hair used, has gone through extensive tangle testing and quality control measures. Al-though all human hair extensions can vary, Milvali uses the best hair available on the market.

FAQ on Human Hair Extensions

How Are Human Hair Extensions applied?
A special tool is used to thread a tiny bead onto a small section of your hair. A pre-tipped hair extension is inserted into the bead at the root, then gently squeezed. The process is completely safe and painless.

How long will the Hair Extensions Last?
Natural human hair extensions can be worn for three to four months depending on how fast your hair grows. When they are applied, they are attached close to the root of your hair. As the hair grows the extension gets further away from the head. The extensions should be removed when they have grown out to about 1 and ½ inches from the scalp. Removal is simple. The bead that holds them in is squeezed opened and the extension slips out leaving the hair in the same condition.

How do I style extensions? Will they damage my hair?
The client can treat the extensions as though it is their own hair. The extensions can be dyed, flat ironed and curled with hot rollers or a curling iron. The client can con-tinue to use their blow dryer and any styling products that they're currently using. The salon recommends using a conditioner every time the client shampoos. Additionally, the client should brush the extensions with a soft bristle brush thoroughly at least twice a day. They will not damage the hair when applied and removed correctly. There is no sewing, weaving or glues used to attach the extension, and no solvents, cutting or chemicals used to remove them.
