At Tatiana Karelina we amalgamate the clinical discipline of hair extension application with the artistic flair of a creative designer. We treat each client relationship as unique, and a source of continued inspiration to help empower today’s women with confidence building hair. We’re here to elevate the standard of hair extensions. For our clients. For our employees. For our community.
Over the past 14-years in business, we have built up an extensive network of hair collectors who travel all over Russia, from village to village, collecting hair, exclusively for us. By working directly with local hair collectors, we are able to secure our supply of the finest Russian hair, first, before it gets sold to brokers and mixed with Asian hair.
The idea that women with long hair are considered to be a more desirable mate in men’s eyes is supported by decades of examples from popular culture and evolutionary psychology. Long hair is beautiful and sensual, adds extra feminine flavour to a woman and is a biological factor traditionally linked to feminine attributes of a woman, and a man will often naturally and subconsciously find himself seeking such partner.
Hair is an important part of a woman’s identity. It is a symbol of self-expression and can be used to make a statement whether it may be temporary or indefinite. With the variations of hairstyles that can be achieved with extensions women can continue to find freedom in their hair.
Micro rings are the smallest, most undetectable non-glue extension attachment technique available. We combine strands of natural hair with extensions using tiny copper rings. Seeing as no glue is used, there is no excessive force applied during removal, therefore, limiting any damage.
The making of our clip-ins is a time-honoured craft that cannot be replicated by a machine. This is why all aspects of our crafting process are done by hand. Each clip-In is made using the highest quality Russian hair and a full-head look is achieved by combining multiple wefts into a single piece.
Unlike other ranges of tapes, mass-produced in China and then relabelled before they are sold, our tapes are the only ones that are made by hand using genuine Russian hair and where the colour is achieved, not with dye, but by blending multiple shades of hair into each tape.
Hair wefts are fast becoming popular way of achieving longer fuller hair. Best attached using micro rings, wefts are a versatile way of achieving a more permanent application than clip-ins yet taking less time to install than stand-by strand.
Hair toppers are a great and easy option for women to disguise partial hair loss or thinning areas on the scalp. These types of hair loss can occur as a result of aging, alopecia, medical treatments, stress, trichotillomania, to name just a few.
Clip-in accessories are no longer viewed as products of vanity, but as everyday necessities to enhance a woman’s style. They should be viewed in the 21st century the same way women in the 20th century embraced the necessity of hats.
Our aim today- as it was 14 years ago- is to provide the best hair extensions in the world. We want to create “WOW” moments for each and every client. We are the company behind Arianna Grande’s signature ponytail, the unicorn braid, and some of the most talked about hairstyles at Coachella, but we’re also laser focused on working with every woman with ambition and desire to enhance their public image with confidence building hair.
I am absolutely IN LOVE with my hair!!! I walked into the cutest boutique salon! This where Tatiana chose from the variety of colours and texture to perfectly match my hair. After about 20 min, she had custom bonds made just for me and we began the process! The hair is so light and feels so soft. I've had extensions poorly done before that tangled up all of the time and I'm happy to say that I've had no issue at all with this hair. I’m so happy to have found such a trustworthy person to do this with! She also does the cutest braids and hairstyles - you've got to check out her Instagram.
After a traumatic series of events followed by some unfortunate health issues, my hair needed some love. The beauty gods must have been watching over me because I stumbled upon Tatiana! Tatiana is a master at her craft. She is meticulous, honest and fair. I was blown away by her beautiful technique and attention to detail. Even with a very challenging request, she managed to transform my hair. Tatiana and her team are true artists
I love going to this salon - the girls are so professional, and their work is the absolute best. The most important thing for me is the care they take of my natural hair when removing my extensions ... I used to go to another extensionist who was SO rough she would rip and tear my hair! But the girls at Tatiana Karelina are so careful it’s a pleasure to go there. I recommend them to everyone 100%
Tatiana and her team of hair extension experts are quite possibly the best in the world. The salons attention to detail is incredible. The staff are wonderful and most importantly my hair is AMAZING. I have been having extensions with Tatiana Karelina for over 6 years and my natural hair has never felt and been healthier than it is now. I have no breakage; the colour match is EXACT, and the quality of the extensions is brilliant and the texture match is perfect. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
I have been coming to Tatiana’s for my hair extensions for the past 5 years. I have very fine hair and it’s blonde, so my hair is so easily damaged. The quality of service is amazing, the girls always make me feel welcome. The hair is just gorgeous & it really does last, worth every single penny! I have never ever lost an extension between maintenance, my hair is perfect all the time, healthy & absolutely no damage at all. In fact, I started going to Tatiana’s because of another hair extension salon... they completely ruined my hair and now I will never ever think about going to a different salon.
I have had my hair extensions done with Tatiana for the first time and what an amazing experience it was, starting from the best quality of Russian virgin hair I have ever seen to the seamless procedure of adding it to my natural hair. I was looked after like a Cinderella at this beautiful salon with a lovely after care service as well. If you are looking for the most natural beautiful blond hair extension that would never differ from your own hair but will add lots of volume and length this is the place.
I am a customer of Tatiana Karelina for many years. And I cannot recommend this place enough. Amazingly, friendly and caring atmosphere with a cosy interior and uber cute chihuahuas. Tatiana herself is there to answer questions and help customers to address their needs. The quality of the Russian hair is amazing. I love their clip-ins, they are so easy to use. It is, without a doubt, the best hair extension salon in London.
The best place to get hair extensions in London and in Los Angeles. I been both. I had mine done a while ago and it literally changed my life. Amazing quality and very easy to look after. Would also recommend their handmade clip-in range - life saver!
