I had been trying to grow my hair long for many years but it only ever reached my shoulders. I thought that I looked like a newsreader and I hated my shoulder length brown bob. I had my hair extensions done by Emilia and in just three hours I had the hair that I'd always dreamed of. I am absolutely delighted with the result and no one suspects that they're not real.

I first got hair extensions from Emelia in August 2005. My hair is quite fine and the only way I could grow it was to make it look full and thick. Emelia did such a great job I have been hooked ever since. The first appointment is the most expensive as you have to purchase the hair but after that, it is very reasonable to re-apply the extensions. Emelia keeps up to date with the latest technology and on my last visit she did the smallest beading ever. I recently had my hair cut which turned out to be a disaster. Emelia came to my rescue and did the most amazing cover up job. This girl is such a professional at what she does. It is not just a glamour job to her. She has helped so many people who have had problems with their hair to feel feminine and good about themselves. I would highly recommend her to any woman who was considering hair extensions to either thicken, lengthen or cover up problematic areas.

I phoned and made an appointment with Emillia in June 2006 for hair extensions. I had recently had a shorter hair cut due to too many highlights and did not like the length. Emillia is a true professional and she helped me to choose extensions that would suit my natural colour. I did not want them to look fake. The hair Emillia uses is of excellent quality (Spanish hair) and my first lot of hair lasted 5 months with maintainence visits to ensure that the condition of my own hair remained good, which it did. My biggest fear with hair extensions was that my own hair would become thin. When I had them removed after 3 months to get my hair cut my hairdresser commented on the condition of my own hair and he was genuinely surprised at the great condition. He said that Emillia must be very good at her job as he has witnessed some nightmare cases! I have since gone back and had a new set of hair extensions in with highlights. This is great for me as I have quite weak hair so I was able to get a t-bar from my hairdresser and then Emillia ran the extension highlights through my hair - this meant I had the benefit of highlights but without damaging all my own hair. Emillia did a brilliant job and everyone has commented on the colours and lovely highlights. I really have great fun with my extensions, curling them and and trying different styles with the length. I cannot recomment Emillia enough. She is honest in her opinion on styles, lengths and colours and is accomodating with her time. She is truely excellent at her job. I will be keeping her number on speeddial for years to come!

I personally shopped around Dublin for not just any extensions but the best ones I could find. Eventually I found a true professional who took true pride in her work. The hair used is the best quality hair that could possibly be used. It blends fantastically. I guarantee that when I went to the hairdresser after I had them fitted they commented on the quality and method and were happy to confirm that they wouldn't damage my own hair. ( As usually hairdressers have something to say!!) As a busy professional woman I needed to look good in the morning without spending hours over my hair. Emelia took the time to show me the tricks of the trade, how to maintain them, how to keep them shiny. They looked and felt fantastic, I looked a lot more feminine and I notice I was approached by men more often (perhaps because of my new confidence they gave to me) When I first called upon the studio to see Emelia, she choose the best method for my hair, she assessed the condition of my hair and listened to my needs. She chose a budget which suited my pocket too. The method she chose was a flat method which was woven into my hair strands. After a disaster with a hair colour (blonde) she advised me on the best colour match. I wanted to have long(ish) but healthy brown coloured hair - my natural colour back. On the day she used her secret styling method and by the end of the few hours I was transformed and my confidence shot up. I had fished around on the internet and had done my homework on extensions, visited other hair extension studios and I chose Emelia because I found her to be the most professional who takes great pride in her work. In Dublin, it's difficult to find an expert in hair extensions but Emelia has the know-how and the correct training. No tell tale hair line marks. She lairs the extensions in to perfection and they look and feel fabulous. She is extremely honest when it comes to length and colour and is certainly a woman who won't rip you off. I read on the internet that they are difficult to sleep on, I guarantee they aren't. I wash my hair the same way as I would without them. I wholeheartedly recommend Emelia as an excellent professional hair extensionist with excellent experience and knowledge. Apart from the hair extensions excellent quality I always feel I'm in the safe hands of a professional. My hair had gone form dry and short and was instantly transformed to long shiny sexy locks and through time my own natural hair was allowed to be re-nourished and it now looks just as shiny and silky as the extensions without the hair serums. 100% recommended! I'm delighted to be able to recommend a hair extensionist whom I have been working with for a year so far, don't get ripped off, get your hair extensions done professionally and I guarantee you'll feel transformed and 100 times more beautiful!

I was very happy with my hair extensions & would recommend them especially for anyone who is trying to let their own hair grow. Before I got the extensions my hair had become very dry from over use of a straightener, so it gave my hair a break and when I had the extensions removed after 3mths my hair was in far better condition than before & no breakage. I also found there was very little maintenance on them. They looked very natural, I got a combination of brown & blond extensions and they worked very well to give a natural look. Overall I was very happy with the results and I would get them in again.

Pauline Donnelly - Clondalkin
I am very happy with the end result of my hair. Emilia's work is excellent, she put a lot of thought and consideration into getting the colour exactly right. My hair feels and looks very natural, nobody believes its extensions!!!! I was worried about the whole thing but I put my trust in Emilia and I have to commend her for her brilliant work. I don't think I will ever get rid of them!!! I will gladly recommend her to anybody, I think she has a natural flare for this work.

I decided to have hair extensions in because I was getting married. I basically wanted some extra length added to complement my own hair. Although I was a little unsure whether to spend that type of money on my hair, I decided to have a chat with Amelia who confirmed my original thoughts. When I had the extra length I was a little shocked and had the hair cut to a shorter length however I fell so much in love with my extensions I decided to have more done. Amelia took some out and replaced them with new longer hair. I was thrilled and even got complements from strange men in my local pub. Best money I have ever spent plus I have taken them out for the minute and not only has my own hair grown but it is still in excellent condition.

Eileen Treacy - Waterford
I recently got hair extensions from Emilia, and I could not be happier with the results!My own hair was very thin and didn't have much length. I am getting married this Spring and really wanted long,beautiful natural looking hair. I cannot believe how fabulous they look! It has been three weeks since I got them in and they look as good as the day I got them done. They are as easy to maintain as if they were my own hair. I would recommend them to everyone!!!

Linda - Ballymun
I have been getting extensions done with Emilia for over a year now, I have tried serveral different methods including keratin glue, microrings and the lastest shrinks links which are fantasic for fine hair like mine. They are really affordable and are real human hair. They really transform the way I look! The quality of the hair is super and an exact colour match. I would highly recommend Emilia to anyone, she is so friendly and if your looking for amazing thickness, unbelievable style and length she is the perfect person for the job.

Eva Kane - City Centre
I have had Hair extensions for the last 6 months. I intially got them done for my friends wedding. I met with Emilia, she is very helpful & friendly and she gave me many different options - from different hair types to different methods of attachment( these where all new techniques not using any glue)and for a half head the prices ranged between ,350 -,600 for european hair. My hair extensions were put in really well and I havent had any problems with them, after I had them in 3 months I went back to Emilia to get them taken out & re put in as they may start to get loose after 3 months, once you have kept the hair in good condition there should be no problem re using the hair so it was quite cheap just to have the hair re put in after 3 months. I often see girls with very obvious hair extensions, Emilia does a very good job matching the colour of the extensions with you hair colour and many of my friends who I have told that I have hair extensions cant believe it and are always asking which is my real hair & which part are the extensions as they cant tell the difference.

Niamh McCarthy - Ranelagh
I had my hair absolutely ruined by a disaster at the hairdressers leaving me with huge bald patches all over my head. I was at my wits end every day trying to cover up the patches until they grow back, my self-confidence took a huge knock and my social life came to an abrupt end. However after a visit to Emilia all that changed! It's like having a good hair day every day. I don't even know the extra hair is there it feels so light and I just can't get over how fab it looks. I have to admit I'm hooked, even when my own hair does grow back I think I'll stick to the extensions!!

Caroline Holden - Laois
They're great, my husband thought he had a new wife!!! Joking aside, they are brill and easy to manage especially with the informative leaflet you gave me on how to look after them, that was my bible anytime I wanted to do any new styling I was able to refer back to the do's and dont's. You were right to keep the long length I could do anything with it I especially love when I take my plaits out and have lovely wavy hair. I went back to the girls, in my hairdressers to see what they thought, they think they are the best hair extensions they have seen, they thought they were really natural, I think they have started saving! As you know I have moved house, I have been meeting lots of new friends, they think my hair is lovely and when I tell them its hair extensions they can't believe it. You think because you know you've extensions that other people will know but that's not true they haven't a CLUE!!!!!!!

Niamh Murphy - Kildare
I have been getting extensions done with Emilia for the past year and I cant say enough good things about them. My hair was badly damaged by a hairdresser previously and I was left with very very fine hair, these extensions have been a godsend and my own hair has improved so much during that time, which proves that these extensions certainly wont damage your hair! Emilia offers a number of different non damaging methods ( no heat or glues) to suit all hair types and pockets!! I have had extensions but in by a few different stylists on occasion over the years but Emilia definetly gets my no 1 vote!
