Salon 427 Hair Extension Specialists are knowledgeable and experienced in a number of different hair extension application techniques. The application technique that best suits your hair type and desired look will be established during a thorough and informative consultation.
Read below for a brief description of the various application methods we offer.
Micro links can be known as micro beads or locks, they are gentle to put in and easy to take out. Links 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 guest’s hair, with an individual strand of extension that is attached. Guests need to be careful not to use conditioner near the bead to help reduce slipping of the extension. Your guest will have to come in every couple of months to have the extensions re-tightened. Micro links last about four months.
Tape-ins can be used for some length, but we recommend them for more volume and thickness. It takes only a short amount of time to apply the extensions. The guest needs to come in every six to eight weeks to have them removed and reapplied. They are applied with a heated tool that heats up a thin strip of glue on the hair weft. The guest’s hair is put between two wefts to create a seal. They have to be careful with using heavy conditioners or oils because that can cause slipping. They are nice for guests because they can reuse the extensions many times before having to order new sets.
Hot or cold fusion is used on individual keratin bonds. Fusion extensions are great for guests seeking length and volume and want little maintenance while the extensions are in. The guests can treat the extensions as if it were their own hair. Fusion extensions might not be suitable for the guest that has compromised hair due to the stress it can cause. It can take about two to three hours to have a full head of extensions put in and they last about four months. This is one of the more costly extensions.
