Sew-ins are cost-effective, easy maintenance and fairly easy to remove. The client’s hair is braided tightly to create a base for the hair wefts to be sewn and attached. This technique is not for every client; not all hair types can handle the stress from the braiding and weight of the extensions. Clients need to have the hair re-tightened through the four months. There are many different textures, colors and types of hair for clients to pick from and there are many different price points, based on quality and length.
Micro link: Micro links can be known as micro beads or locks, they are gentle to put in and easy to take out. Hair 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. Client will have to come in every couple of months to have the extensions re-tightened. Micro links last about four months.
Tape-in: Tape-ins can be used for some length, but I use them on clients for more volume and thickness. It takes only a short amount of time to install the extensions. The guest does need to come in every six to eight weeks to have them removed and reinstalled. The client’s hair is put between two wefts to create a seal. They do have to be careful with using heavy conditioners or oils because that can cause slipping. They are nice for clients because they can reuse the extensions many times before having to order new extensions.
Fusion:Hot or cold fusion is used on individual keratin bonds. Fusion extensions are great for clients seeking length and volume and 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 last about four months. This is one of the more costly extensions.
