Different Methods of Getting Hair Extensions

If you have thin, fine, limp or low hair count and desire beautiful long and voluminous hair, then hair extensions are the perfect solution for you. Not only will they add volume and length but also make your hair appear thicker and more lustrous. These hair extensions can also be washed, styled, straightened or curled as you desire. The curls will remain until the extensions are washed just like your natural hair. You can confidently go wherever you want with your stylish new look.

There are many hair extension techniques to choose from. Here are a few methods of getting hair extensions:

Sew-in: Sew-ins are cost-effective, easy to maintain and fairly easy to remove. The hair is braided tightly to create a base for the hair wefts to be sewn and attached. There are many different textures, colours and types of hair for women to choose from and there are many different price points based on quality and length.

Clip-ins: Clip-ins are wefts of hair that are attached to a clip. Clip-ins come in many different sizes so they can be placed all around the head. They are great for women who want instant makeovers for special occasions. Clip-Ins take less time to be put on. They can add length and volume in just about every texture, colour and price range.

Top Pieces: Top pieces extension adds thickness and volume to the top of the head to help camouflage thinning hair. They either have a clip or micro beads keeping them intact. Clients do need to have them retightened from time to time.

Micro link: Micro links are also known as micro beads or locks as they are gentle to put in and easy to take out. They can be added for length and volume. There is no glue or heat used when applying. To apply, a small silicone bead is placed onto the base of the client’s hair, with an individual strand of extension that is attached. Clients do need to be careful not to use conditioner near the bead to help reduce slipping of the extension. They need to be retightened every couple of months.

Tape-in: Tape-ins can be used for adding length, volume and thickness to one’s hair. It takes only a short amount of time to install these extensions. They last for around six to eight weeks until they have to be removed and reinstalled. They are applied with a heated tool that heats up a thin strip of glue that is on the hair weft. The client’s hair is put between two wefts to create a seal. These extensions can be reused many times.

Fusion: Fusion extensions are great for clients seeking length and volume and those who want little maintenance while the extensions are in. The clients can treat the extensions as if it were their own hair. It can take about two to three hours to have a full head of extensions put in and they last for about four months.
