10 Types of hair extensions
Price, style, cuticles and hair grades play a combined role in knowing which hair extension is your hair extension. We’ll brush you up on this knowledge nice and quick:
These extensions require corn-rows & will cover your entire head and scalp.
A Weft is strands of hair machine-sewn into long strips. Generally sold in bundles of 100g where 2 bundles are needed for a full head. Application is done via sewing into corn-rows. Should be washed weekly and removed after 6 weeks to prevent damage to natural hair.
Closures are oblong/circle shaped lace that has hair attached. The “thin skin” around the perimeter attaches to a cornrow base to secure your sewn in weave. Closures should not be glued/taped in to prevent loss of hair. If used must be removed after 5 days with hair glue removal products.
These extensions are used to cover your entire head and can be removed and applied daily.
A lace wig is a special type of hairpiece or wig designed with a sheer lace base. Lace front wigs are tied, by hand/machine to a sheer lace base. The lace front should not be glued or taped in. Rather sew-into corn rows for permanent application. Lace wigs must also be applied to the hairline to ensure a natural look. .
A wig is an artificial head covering made from human hair, animal hair, or synthetic fiber.
These extensions enhances your natural hair by blending extensions into your natural hair for volume and length.
Small hair pieces are attached to the roots of your own hair with a special hair bonding glue. Must be removed after 4 weeks.
Using a strand-by-strand technique the micro-ring is attached closely to the scalp by pulling small sections of your natural hair through the loop, then clamped with hair pliers. Removal at 6 weeks max.
Hair extensions are applied strand by strand with a special elastic thread technique. This creates the versatility of a fusion technique without using heat or glue, causing less stress on your hair.
These are seamless pre-taped hair extensions. They are semi permanent and re-useable for up to 3 re-applications. No additional adhesives on the scalp / weaving / braiding / chemicals.
Clip-ins are strands of hair attached using pressure sensitive clips so they don’t cause damage to your natural hair. They are easy to apply and temporary. Used to add length, volume, add highlights, and even bangs.
Nine wefts are interlinked together to create one unit, they’re clipped into your natural hair, giving you the look of full, luscious hair in a snap.
