Application Methods

Classic Thermal


The original and still unrivaled Great Lengths Classic Thermal application machine.


Producing results simply not possible with any other system, the Great Lengths Classic Thermal applicator tong is heated on one side. The temperature, which is approximately the same temperature as the lowest setting on a standard curling iron, is used to soften the Great Lengths bond so it can be molded to your natural hair. Unlike other systems, where glue guns and wax melting pots are used, the Classic Thermal applicator allows for a very clean and precise application. The result is undetectable attachments that are brushable, durable and non-damaging.

Ultrasonic Touch


The Next Level in hair extension application technology.


Whereas the original Great Lengths Classic Thermal method utilizes heat to soften the bond so the bond can be molded around the group of natural strands that the bond is attaching to, the Ultrasonic Touch method utilizes ultrasonic wave. This wave or “vibration” action generates heat within the bond and this allows the bond to surround each individual strand within the group of natural strands the bond is being attached to. This added bonding security allows the stylist to mold the bond attachments into “flat” bond formation without compromising the bond “seal” to the client’s hair. Of course, traditional “round” bond formations with the Ultrasonic Touch are possible too. This gives the stylist more application options to truly customize their Great Lengths Services to each client’s specific need and desired result.
