Hair extensions can be easily cut, dyed, and blended to achieve remarkable results. Different types of hair extensions utilize different application methods:
Individual Tipped Hair Extensions are applied with a pulling tool that pulls the client’s hair through a very small micro ring. The I-tip extension is then inserted into the micro ring which is compressed with special pliers. The compression is extremely effective in holding the extension in place.
Individual Microbeads Hair Extensions involve micro-links which are applied using ringlets where a thin portion of the client’s natural hair, with the micro link ring, is squeezed together. This secures the extensions. No bonding, glue, wax, or other product is used. This procedure adds length and fullness to finely-textured hair. Micro-links can last up to four months!
Kera Tips Hair Extensions are pre-tipped pieces of hair (dipped in protein wax) used to extend the length of one’s hair. Bonding the natural hair with the extensions is accomplished with a heated tool. This is the fastest and simplest hair extension technique.
Skin Weft (Taping) Hair Extensions are applied to the scalp with a double-sided tape procedure. A thin portion of natural hair is sandwiched between the two pieces of the skin-weft human hair and sealed with low heat. This process lays very flat and is ideal for thin or fine hair that needs more volume or length. This application can last up to five weeks!
Beaded Weft Hair Extensions are also known as ‘braidless sewn-ins’. These hair extensions are applied using beads and weft hair. No braid is required to install these pieces. A thin portion of the client’s natural hair is attached to a ringlet. The natural hair and the ringlet are, then, squeezed together. The weft is, then, attached by sewing over each bead to create a very flat, natural appearance. This technique is ideal for clients with long hair looking to add fullness, color, and/or length.
Permanent Bang Extensions uses the I-tip method to create dynamic-looking bangs – no need to cut your own hair! You can, also, frame your face and add volume to the top of your head with clip-in bangs which take only minutes to apply!
After it’s all said and done, hair extensions should always be removed by a professional to ensure the care and safety of the natural hair.
