HAIR EXTENSION METHODS
Sure you are curious about the different hair extension methods. The 3 most popular ones as of 2019, are weft hair extensions, tape-in extensions, and strand-by-strand.
WEFT HAIR EXTENSIONS
Weft hair extensions, also known as “weave”, dates back to the Cleopatra days, documented among the Egyptians in 3400 BC.
Till this day, most licensed cosmetologists will highly recommend weft hair extensions to prevent the stress on your hair. Applications include:
When weft is supported by braids and attached with thread. Depending on your hair texture, this technique may last 2-3 months.
There are endless textures of weft hair extensions from European, Brazilian, Asian, Indian to African textures. Virgin human hair bundles can be colored or highlighted by professional hair stylists.
HAIR EXTENSION CLIP-INS
Clip-in hair extension wefts have combs or barrette clips attached on the top of weft. Recommended for coarse or thicker hair textures, the clips will snap onto the hair, hidden towards the bottom to hide weft.
Clip-ins are great for a temporary look. Not recommended to keep in overnight.
MICRO RING BEADED WEFT
This method is similar to the sew-in method, except Stylist is sewing weft through ceramic beads instead of braids. May last between 1-2 months.
Not recommended for fine hair.
Tape-in extensions have become very popular over the years. For a flatter appearance, these extensions are hand-tied into a seamless strip. But the downfall is the maintenance. Lasts about 1-1.5 months.
As tedious as it sounds, the strand-by-strand hair extensions method is the long process. You may be familiar with Microbead, Fusion, Microlink, or Bonded Hair Extensions.
Hair pieces are made up of collectively 20-60 strands of hair, bonded together by hot glue, keratin, or polyurethane. This method involves attaching the hair piece to your hair by with a warm glue gun, or cold fusion with plyers – using ceramic or copper cylinders.
Maintenance depends on how fast your hair grows. The average client returns every 1.5-2 months to slide the cylinders up towards the roots.
