Hair Extension Methods Explained
All of the methods explained, and shown here via our ‘taster’ videos, are available to learn on our hair extension courses, and are also available for fittings within our specialist hair extension salon/mobile service.
Nano Ring Hair Extensions
This incredible method has become the most popular hair extension method currently available.
Using specially designed hair extension strands, and rings that are 90% smaller than a standard micro ring, these extensions really are next to invisible in the clients hair.
Get ahead of your competition by getting trained in this incredible technique.
Micro Rings Method
Micro rings are a great method for clients who do not want their hair extensions applied using heat and melted keratin. They are very popular with first time extension wearers.
Easy and quick to fit.
The micro ring method is applied using no heat, glue or chemicals.
Pre-Bonded Hot Fusion Method
Still the most popular hair extension method we offer. An extension strand of pre-bonded ‘U tip’ extension hair is applied to the clients own hair.
This is done by melting the keratin nail tip with a heat connector clamp, and then wrapping and rolling the heated keratin around the clients own hair to create a strong bond that hold the hair extension in place.
Removal is by applying specialist remover solution to each individual bond, and then crushing the bond. This weakens the bond and releases it from the clients hair, enabling the extension strand to be easily removed.
Tape Hair Extensions
A great method that is growing very quickly in popularity.Mini 4cm wide wefts are applied back to back, with the clients hair sandwiched in between. It is an incredibly quick method to fit – with a full head being fitted in as little as 45 minutes!
The method is suitable for all hair types, and adds instant volume and length in less than an hour!
Removal is quick and easy for the extensionist, and safe for the client.
Micro Ring Weft
Micro Weft Hair Extension application method is much quicker than the individual strand by strand micro ring or pre bonded method.
The weft of hair is placed horizontally in strips against the head.
Small sections of the clients hair and hair from the weft are gently pulled through micro rings which are then clamped to secure the weft in place, these sections are placed approximately 2cm apart. This is continued in sections until almost reaching the top of the head. No sewing is required to hold the wefts in place.
Sew In Braidless Weft
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.
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.
