Micro Rings

Micro ring hair extensions is hair extension method which is guaranteed not to damage your own hair. This method is completely glue, heat and chemical free. Individual strands of human hair are held securely in place using tiny micro-ring clips which are gripped together using specialist tools. No harmful chemicals are used, resulting in no stress being caused to the hair or roots, meaning these are the safest hair extension methods available anywhere in the world. Beautiful, fully natural looking, long lasting human hair extensions.

Small sections of your own hair are gently pulled through the micro rings. Hair extension strands are placed inside the rings and then the micro rings are squeezed shut using hair extension pliers. This in effect clamps the hair extensions to your own natural hair. The micro rings / micro links sit flat against your scalp. Micro rings are small metal rings coated in plastic to provide comfort and cushioning to your scalp. The micro rings are also silicone lined to protect your own natural hair and help guard against slipping. Micro Rings come in a variety of colours and will be chosen to blend in with your extensions.

Micro Ring Hair Extensions can be applied in one solid colour or multiple colours can be applied in combination to create highlights and lowlights as well as fashionable colour flashes. More practical and longer lasting than Clip-in Hair Extensions, each fitting of Micro Ring Hair Extensions should last at least 3 months with correct after care and regular maintenance. A very cost effective method as the extension hair can be removed and re-fitted if still in good condition.

This NEW hair extension method is specially designed to provide the SMALLEST, most undetectable bond.  Nano ring is up to 90% smaller and less detectable than micro ring method.

Pre-bonded/Fusion

Pre-bonded hair extensions come with keratin resin bonds already attached. Keratin is natural protein found in human hair. Keratin based bonding resin is the strongest yet kindest, most flexible hair extensions attachment resin currently available. Unlike silicone based glues which are difficult to remove and may damage your own hair, keratin resin is easily removed causing no damage to your own hair. These bonds are coloured similarly to the hair extensions and are about the size of a grain of rice so that they are virtually undetectable.

Pre Bonded hair extensions are attached to your hair via a small heated applicator which melts the bond at a fairly low temperature. Your hair extension technicians will the roll this into a seal around small sections of your own hair.  Most wearers of pre-bonded hair extensions experience virtually no extension hair shedding with this method.

Shrink Tube Hair Extensions

To fit this hair extension application method, small sections of your own hair are gently pulled through the shrink tubes often called shrinkies. Hair extension strands are placed inside the shrink tube. Heat is applied to the shrink tubes causing them to shrink around both your own hair and hair extensions. These are virtually undetectable, lightweight and secure.

Shrink tube Hair Extensions can be applied in one solid colour or multiple colours can be applied in combination to create highlights and lowlights as well as fashionable colour flashes. More practical and longer lasting than Clip-in Hair Extensions, each fitting of Shrink Tube Hair Extensions should last at least 3 months with correct after care and regular maintenance.

Note: As the heat from this method has a small chance of melting a little of the bond used to hold the extensions strand together, it is not suitable for clients who definitely don’t want glue based hair extensions.

What is great about this method is that it is quick to apply, you can fit in a lot of hair even in fine hair and it lies very flat.

This method involves sandwiching your hair between two strips of tape hair extensions and pressing them together. Removal is very easy and you can re-use the hair over and over again as long as you have taken care of it.
