Sew-In Hair Extensions: If You Make it, Look More Natural
A look can be customized to work perfectly with your hair. Hand-tied wefts are great for ultra-fine hair, they're thinner and lighter. They're hand-stitched and as delicate as your natural hair. The machine weft is denser and heavier, making it ideal for medium thick hair types. They are flexible and extremely flat to keep your extension seamless and unobtrusive. Sewn extensions are the best option when you want to make already "long" hair longer and fuller. We also found that this method works best with hair of medium texture and density to help bead rows stay tight between raised applications. Due to the "slippery" texture of the hair, the beads tend to slip off and require frequent maintenance.
Fusion & Pre-Bonded Hair Extensions:
Fusion hair extensions (also known as bonding or pre-bonded) are fused to natural hair using different adhesives such as glue. Applying pre-bonded hair extensions take approximately 3-4 hours to apply and are also applied by a hairdresser. Fusion extensions might not be suitable for all clients as this type of application is very damaging to your natural hair, so your hairdresser may even advise against this method. The application involves a machine that looks like a hot glue gun, which essentially glues the hair to individual strands of the natural hair. Another type of application for pre-bonded hair extensions uses a heat clamp to melt the glue to the natural hair.
Microlink Hair Extensions: You Can Try Once
Microlink hair extensions are also known as micro bead hair extensions or micro loop hair extensions. These are applied by attaching tiny wefts of hair to small sections of the natural hair with a small silicone-lined bead. Then, a special tool is used to secure the bead to the hair and tightened to hold it in place. Although this method does not use heat or glue, if not installed correctly by a professional, microlink hair extensions can be damaging on the hair. The bead may be tightened too much, causing pressure and pulling at the roots, and if not removed properly, the hair can be pulled out. This method takes approximately 2-4 hours to apply.
