It is said that the a woman’s crown is her hair. After all appearance is everything and size does matter here as long hair adds to your beauty.
Quality and thickness of Hair Extensions
I use very high quality (Premium) Remy 100% human hair extensions which is suitable for European hair. I try to blend them with your hair.
With proper daily maintenance and if you are looking after your hair extensions well, then these should last for 5-6 months. In-fills may be needed after couple of months, to replace the lost strands or which have become loose. You do shed 5-10 strands at least 6-8 weeks which is normal.
There are 5 types or ways of applying PROFESSIONAL Hair Extensions. I do not apply Clip-In Hair Extensions as mostly they can be applied by the clients themselves. These are described as below:
Pre-bonded Hair Extensions
Pre-bonded Remy Hair Extensions are the most commonly used type of hair extensions. It is quite common in celebrities. Pre-bonded 100% human individual Remy hair extensions of premium quality are applied to your natural hair. This uses individual Hair strands to apply to your hair.These can be applied either using a Heat connector or an Ultrasonic connector (without heat). These are described below:
HEAT CONNECTOR: Heat connector melts the resin called Keratin at the end of the hair strand. Keratin a protein of which natural hair is made of. Provided, you have looked after your extensions well they should last up to 5 to 6 months. This gives a more natural feeling to you hair and you hardly feel that you had extensions applied.
ULTRASONIC CONNECTOR: Ultrasonic Cold Fusion is the most modern methods of hair extensions application available . It is considered as the GOLD STANDARD in hair extensions as it is more gentle. It is very popular in the celebrities and is offered by various top notch salons all over the world. There is no heat involved but it uses Ultrasonic fusion technology. It is much kinder on clients with thin or baby like hair. Ultrasonic cold fusion involves an applicator which uses ultrasonic wave which melts the keratin bond and attaches the hair extensions. For £20 extra you can choose ultrasonic fusion method as compared to Hot fusion, though Hot fusion is also very popular method.
Micro-ring Hair Extensions
No Glue, Sewing or braids or chemicals are involved so is quite safe to hair and scalp. This uses individual Hair strands to apply to your hair.
Micro-ring hair extensions technique uses the smallest and most undetectable hair extension technique available, which combines strands of natural hair with the extension hair.
This method has provided a solution to those seeking an alternative to the traditional glue method as a way of attaching hair extensions in a non-damaging way. Strand by strand are applied to your natural hair by clamping a section of natural hair within a ring along side a stick tip hair extension using a micro-ring which has silicone lining inside. They are very popular with first time extension wearers. Not suitable for fine hair.
WEFT Sew in Braidless (No corn braiding)
Hair Extensions (suitable for European Hair)
This uses WEFT Hair which are applied to your hair.
This sew in weft technique gives a durable fitting without glue or heat, with the added benefit of being able to re-use the wefts to reposition many times. It is suitable more for European hair as it does not cause problems of braided hair which can get tight especially after being wet and several clients I have come across who wanted to get rid of the braided weft as it becomes tight and pulls on their hair, so no such issues with this braidless technique.
This unique application is ideal for many hair types, without the use of tight braids that are often used for sew in techniques. The beaded track of micro rings that replaces the typical braid offers a much flatter position to the scalp, without the uncomfortable, and often damaging, tension of a braid.
TAPE-IN Hair Extensions
Tape extensions involves using a 4cm wide tape wefts that are applied back to back, with the clients hair sandwiched in between.
Tape-In Hair Extensions is a great way of applying hair extensions that is growing very quickly in popularity.
The method is suitable for all hair types, and adds instant volume and length in less time. The tapes can be readjusted after 6 to 8 weeks by reapplying them with new tapes. You can also change the colour of the tape-in hair extensions and go for a whole new set at 6 – 8 weeks as their prices are less as compared to pre-bonded hair extensions, still giving you full freedom of your hair.
Removal is quick and easy and also safe.
OMBRE Hair Extensions
Latest trend in Hair Extensions is the Ombre Hair Extensions. It means hair extensions which are generally darker at the roots through the mid-shaft and then gradually gets lighter from the mid-shaft to the ends.
Normally, most of the people have one colour of hair. Quite often it is seen that clients can have various colours of natural hair like various shades of brown or blonde. In such situations you would need more than one colour of hair extensions to be applied to your natural hair to give a well blended and natural look .
If you are looking for having only highlights to your natural hair for any party look or even day-to-day wear, then individual strands of various colours are available which can be chosen after consultation and applied thereafter.
