Clip-In Hair

Tape-In Hair

Tape-In Hair extensions are exactly what they sound like. The extensions are pre-taped and then taped or glued together on either side of your own hair. Tape-ins are considered semi-permanent. They last 4 – 8 weeks before you need to remove and re-apply them.


Keratin Bond

If you’re planning to wear hair extensions for a much longer period and consistently, you might as well go for the keratin bond. This involves installing micro hair strands with keratin near the roots using a heated tool. Not only does it ensure firm attachment of your extensions, but it also blends and appears more natural together with the human hair.


Sew-In Hair Extensions/Weave

Weave hair is applied by braiding the natural hair into cornrows first, then using a needle and thread to sew the weave into the braid or cornrow. The tight application method often puts a strain on the scalp and can feel very heavy or uncomfortable, which is also why it doesn’t work well with thin or lighter hair. It is recommended to remove the weave every 6 – 8 weeks.

Micro Ring Hair Extensions

Micro Ring Hair extensions also offer a convenient way to apply for hair extensions without the use of heat or glue. A metal pulling loop is used to thread the client’s hair with small Micro Rings. Once the rings is on the client’s hair, the strand of hair is inserted into the ring and clamped flat; the type of hair used for this technique is called Stick Tip/ I-Tip extensions.
