Keratin tip extensions also known as fusion extensions are lightweight strand by strand method. The hair is attached by using a mini fusion gun on a low heat setting to mold the keratin tip extension into a small section of the clients hair. This method is the most adaptable to different hair types due to the ability to reduce its size to a micro keratin tip. This method take anywhere from 3-6 hours for a full head and last up to 6 months. There is no maintenance appointment with keratin tip extensions.
Cylinder extensions (I-Tip or Beaded extensions) are a lightweight strand by strand method. Cylinder extensions are attached by feeding the natural hair through a metal bead. An I-Tip extension is then inserted into the bead and it is clamped shut. This method blends seamlessly with the clients natural hair due to the smaller attachment area. Cylinder extensions require one maintenance visit 7 to 8 weeks after the initial application to move the extension back up to the root of the hair. The extensions are then worn for additional 4 months which gives the client approximately 6 months of usage. Depending on the amount of hair being added in to the clients hair, a full head of cylinder extensions can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours for application.
Tape in hair extensions are pre-cut, pre-taped hair extensions. The tape is a medical grade adhesive. The tape in extensions are applied by sandwiching the natural hair in between two pieces of tape extensions. This method last about 6 to 7 weeks before re-application is required. Most clients will get about three applications out of each set of extensions giving them approximately six months of usage with the tape in extensions hair.The application process is faster but maintenance is needed more frequent than the strand by strand process.
Weft sew in hair extensions are most adaptable extension option due to its availability and cost. The beaded weft method can be used with hand tied weft hair extensions, machine weft, or flat weft hair extensions. The MicroBead method is applied by feeding the clients natural hair through a metal bead and then sewing the weft to the beads. The Microlink method can only be done with machine wefts and pulls the clients hair between the middle of the weft and is secured with only beads (no thread needed). Both need to be maintenance at 6 to 7 weeks as the clients natural hair grows out.
Hand Tied Weft - is ALL THE RAGE! Strands tied by hand onto 2 strings to create a weft. This weft is thin and allows the extensions to lay flatter to the head. As the hair grows the flexibility of the hand tied wefts help to keep the weft flowing with the natural hair. This also allows you to double or triple the wft to all volume.
Machine Weft - This is the extension hair everyone tries 1st. Loose or bulk hair is fed through a triple head sewing machine to reinforce the stitching. Machine weft are 2 thin wefts sewn together. Some manufactures also apply glue shedding.
Flat Weft - Whats new? This is a hybrid of a hand tied and a machine weft. These are a combination of material, thread and keratin to make the weft. It had the flatness of a hand tied and durability of a machine and can be cut customized sizes.
Micro Link Beaded Weft extensions are wefts that are pre beaded. Same applications the Beaded sew in weft method but this one has no thread involved. Reapplication needed at about 6 to 7 weeks as the clients natural hair grows out. This method is applied by feeding the clients natural hair through a metal bead.and clamping the bead closed.
Micro Loop extensions are a lightweight strand by strand method. Natural hair is fed through the middle of the metal beaded extension and the bead clamped shut. This method blends seamlessly with the clients natural hair due to the hair going through the middle of the extension and the smaller attachment area. Micro Loop extensions require one maintenance visit 7 to 8 weeks after the initial application to move the extension back up to the root of the hair. The extensions are then worn for additional 4 months which gives the client approximately 6 months of usage. Depending on the amount of hair being added in to the clients hair, a full head of micro loop extensions can take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours for application.
