How Much Do DreamCatchers Extensions Cost?

Written by: Staff

DreamCatchers extensions use a micro cylinder method by adding extra volume and/or length without using any glue, wax or heat.

Using a specialized method, these extensions will be threaded through a cylinder to the root where the extensions will be inserted and clamped tight.

These extensions use 100 percent human hair and can be used over and over again.

How much do DreamCatchers extensions cost?

The extensions, without even going to a salon, can cost anywhere from $75 to $175 for about 100 to 200 strands.  According to, the average customer requires five bundles, bringing the average cost for materials alone to $500 if you were to need five bundles.  Again, this is for the materials only.  Plus, aside from the extensions, a micro-cylinder will be required, which will cost about $5.

Depending on the number of strands you need and the length you want, these extensions can cost anywhere from $500 for 12 inches to as much as $1,500 for 24 inches if you were to go to a local salon and have a professional stylist install them.  Many stylists will charge based on the number of bundles they need to complete the job, so if you needed four bundles for a full head install, the stylist may charge $100 per bundle, plus the material cost.

If you’re only looking for a few strands, then plan on spending about $7 to $17 per strand.

Madeline Hair Design, for example, charges $950 for up to 20 inches and $1,500 for 14 inches.

Tovani Hair says the average cost can cost about $800 to $1,200 for a full head install.  This cost will really depend on the length you want, the volume of your hair and the density desired.

Hair by Krystal lists her prices on her website and charges $125 per hour, plus the cost of hair, which is about $100 per bundle.  She says the average person needs five to seven bundles and it can take two to four hours to install.

DreamCatchers extensions overview

The extensions come in 30 colors, with 20, 22 and 24-inch lengths.

It takes two to three hours, on average to put, in these extensions, and the time it takes will depend on the length and volume of your hair.

These extensions can last nine to 12 months if taken care of properly.

What are the extra costs?

Adjustment appointments will be necessary every six weeks as your natural hair grows since the cylinders attached to your extensions will need to be moved up.  An adjustment visit is usually less than $100 and should take about 30 to 60 minutes to complete.

Every 12 weeks or so, you will need a new set of cylinders, which like the adjustment appointment, will take up to 60 minutes and will cost about $100 to $200.

To remove your extensions, it could cost upwards of $100 to $200, depending on your extensions and your hair’s condition.

If you need to color your hair to match one of the 30 colors the company offers, then this hair color will be an additional charge.  DreamCatchers recommends coloring your natural hair before having the extensions installed.

Tips to know:

DreamCatcher extensions use 100% human hair, and because of this, it can be washed, dried, permed, curled, or styled any way you want, just like the way you would do with your own hair.

How can I save money?

Many salons offer promotions for first-time customers or even existing customers.  Talk with your favorite salon to see if they have any current offers.

Consider checking out to see if any local deal sites are offering a heavily discounted deal.

Remember, DreamCatchers are only a “type” of hair extensions.  If you feel the prices are too high, then consider other hair extension options that are much cheaper.

Many stylists will meet with you for free and can discuss your options.  It doesn’t hurt to talk with a handful in your area to see what they may charge.   The official DreamCatcher website always recommends choosing a qualified technician who has gone through the appropriate training when applying your hair.  You can click here to find a qualified stylist in your area.
