Shopping Basics: Payment & Pricing Topics

While we do ship to other countries, all our prices are always shown and charged in U. S. dollars.

Our usual Salon tier minimum order is $200, but we'll allow less than that for online orders. HOWEVER, there is a $15.00 shopping minimum. (Minimum online order rate can change without notice, but we'll try to make sure we give a head-up to those of you on our mailing list)

Explaining the Authorization and Capture Process:

Q1. How do I know when my account will be charged?

Answer: The first step of an online Credit Card Purchase is the Authorization Step.

This is when you enter your Credit Card information and place your order online and get emailed a receipt.

When our gateway checks your card for all the fraud issues and finds it to be a good card, your bank then immediately places a hold on the funds in your account and sets those funds aside for the online shop.

We, our bank, does not yet get the funds, but your account appears to have been charged and you cannot access those funds.

The money is being held by YOUR bank until the Capture Stage which we never reach if your order was declined or voided.

Q2. What is the Capture Stage?

Answer: The Capture Stage is when we (the online shop) actually get the funds from your bank and transfer them into ours.

This happens only on the day that your order ships.

The funds that were authorized and set aside for us are then collected by us, and we send you your item.

Q3. What's the point of that system?

Answer: The point of the Authorization-Capture Process is to protect both you and the online store.

Your bank shows your account as charged so you that consider those funds as gone, yet we don't get them until they day we ship so that we never have your money without immediately sending you your product.

Also we never ever have your Credit Card information on file. Once you place your order, your personal information is protected so that even we cannot look at it.

Q4. Why do I need to know this?

Answer: For several reasons, but mostly so you don't panic, and also so we can help you with YOUR bank if we need to.


Our gateway, or the program / bank resource that checks your credit card's address and other information for validity is often much stricter than your bank.

In some cases, you will try to place an order with us, but the order will be declined because some information you gave us didn't match what the central gateway has on file for you.

Maybe you moved recently and the banks still have your old address on file, maybe your CCV code was worn and you mis-read it, any of those cases will result in a DECLINE by our merchant account.

Once you order is declined, we no longer have any access to your credit card details and all our account shows us is a "Declined" message.

We can't go in at a later time and capture these funds; they're gone to us for good.


Your bank may show transactions like these (ones declined by our gateway for security reasons but that your bank allowed), as well as orders placed then cancelled as "Authorizations" meaning they (YOUR BANK) are freezing these funds (Take comfort, in this situation we don't have your money, nor have access to it!).

Uncaptured Authorizations fall off in a few to 30 days in general.

If you need that money freed up for personal use sooner, we can’t do this on our own.



Answer: Yes, we do.

If you want to place volume orders (over 20 of the same item / containers etc.) Please fill out a distributor application then contact us at 1-888-424-7278 and speak to a customer service representative to help you place an order.

Human hair extensions questions

Generally you can wear them 8-12 weeks or up to 3 months.

We recommend using new hair to ensure quality, fresh-looking hair, but because our hair is of such high quality, they can be re-applied up to three times.

It is recommended to have your hair extensions applied and re-applied by a licensed cosmetologist.

You can wash and condition the hair extensions as you normally would your own hair.

Condition hair starting from the mid-shaft to the tips.

While holding hair at the ends, carefully brush/comb through hair and gradually work your way up.

Also, it’s a good idea to braid your hair or put your hair in a ponytail before you go to bed to avoid tangled hair in the morning and less tension during brushing/combing.

We recommend using shampoos / conditioners that are sulfate free.

Avoid using serums near the tape-in bonds to prevent the extensions from slipping out. Y

ou can also use dry shampoos.


Yes, our hair can be color lifted or deposited, highlighted, ironed, curled, blow dried, and you can even add a perm treatment.

Remember, these are human hair extensions!

We also have a selection of wavy hair extensions to choose from.


Yes, you can re-apply our hair extensions up to 3x maximum, however, we recommend a new set to be installed to ensure a fresh top quality look.

We recommend installations of all our hair extensions to be performed by a licensed hair professional.


Yes, you can swim with our hair extensions on.

For blonde and light brown shade extensions, we recommend wetting your hair with fresh tap water and pre-treating your hair with a primer prior to swimming activities to prevent or minimize discoloration from chlorine or salt water.

A good pre-treatment to use is Hairart’s Moisture Healing Mask.

Also, it’s a good idea to put your hair in a ponytail or braid to avoid tangling / matting during water activities.

HAir mannequin related questions

Please watch our video on Facebook explaining how to accurately measure mannequin hair length.


For balayage practice, we recommend our mannequin heads that are100% Virgin European Hair, such as EMMA HAIR MANNEQUINand EMILY HAIR MANNEQUIN.

Their Virgin European hair has never been processed or colored in any way and are guaranteed to achieve, true color results.

Emma and Emily are the preferred choice by Educators because they can confidently perform, without problems, a color lift or deposit, highlight, balayage, color melt, add a perm treatment, and demonstrate cutting and razor techniques.

OLIVIA HAIR MANNEQUIN is 100% European hair, and we’ve perfectly processed her hair for you to a color level-10 so you don’t have to and can go straight away to color deposit. and BIANCA HAIR MANNEQUIN starts at a perfect level 60 for immediate color deposit practice in vivid colors or pastels.
