Hair Extension Methods
Strand by Strand Methods
Microchet Hair Extensions: NOW AVAILABLE! One of the latest inventions in the field of hair extensions is a very gentle thread technique that is virtually undetectable. The process has no pulling or stress on your hair, and no damage to your own hair. It is very comfortable and light, you can hardly feel it yourself. The attachment is so small that it can be applied on very thin hair and on areas of the head (temples, mid scalp, fore head) where most other systems can not. Microchet Hair Extension method is becoming highly popular in Hollywood, Sand Diego, New York, Chicago, Miami and Ft Lauderdale. High quality, special order, human hair only.
Micro-cylinder Hair Extensions: This gentle attachment method does not involve glues, heat, or chemicals. Tiny tubes (micro-cylinders) are used to attach the strands with a special technique to your own hair. Easy to install and easy to remove by an expert. Applied in the correct way this is a strong and safe method that will not damage your own hair. This method can also be used for weft extensions. The cylinders come in different sizes and colors but also in different qualities.
Weft Hair Extensions: A weft is a track of several inches long on which the hair is already attached (a curtain of hair attached together at the top and free flowing at the bottom). A weft can be made by a machine or by hand. Handmade wefts are better, they are custom made to suit your head and match your hair. The extensions are then applied by using one row (track) at the time instead of strand by strand.
Bonded Hair Extensions: The weft is applied with adhesive to your hair or to your skin depending on salon and stylist. For some people it will last for many weeks and for others it loosens up after the first shampoo. This method is faster and therefore less expensive than strand by strand extensions.
Braided Hair Extensions: First a braid is created of your own hair and than the weft is sewn onto the braid. The number of tracks depends on how much fullness you want to add to your hair.
Weaved Hair Extensions: This is done by weaving your own hair around a number of threads. This way a track is created. The weft is sewn onto this track. Braiding and weaving give more tension to your hair and skin because it is tight and therefore will pull more.
