Common Methods Of Attaching Hair Extensions
The methods used to attach hair extensions vary and require an assessment of your hair to create the look you desire, while maintaining the integrity and health of your mane.
Here are four common methods of attaching hair extensions:
1. Hair Weaves
At Uptown New York Style hair salon, hair weaves are the most popular method of attaching hair extensions. This method consist of braiding your natural hair into cornrows and sewing the extensions in with a professional hair needle and thread. This is the favored method for women with curly or frizzy hair.
2. Cold Fusion
This process uses a keratin-based polymer to attach extensions to the root of your hair. This method does not require heat, so damage to the scalp is minimized and it results in natural-feeling hair. It also allows for additional extensions around the front of your head, and you can shampoo, style and treat your hair as normal.
3. Micro Links
The micro link method of attaching hair extensions involves looping the extensions through your natural hair, before binding the hair using pliers and metal beads. While they last for a long time, they may require frequent attention and may cause damage to your natural hair if you do not properly take care of your hair.
4. Clip Ins Hair Extensions
Clip ins are the most temporary of the four hair extension methods used. They can be attached (clipped in) and removed in minutes. They are perfect for special occasions to instantly add volume and/or length to your natural hair. They may not look as natural as the permanent applications and you should be aware to take precaution as they could possibly fall out, especially for fine hair.
When deciding to get hair extensions, the most important consideration is to start the process with a professional. This will ensure you can create the look you desire without damaging your hair, and you will receive hair care and maintenance guidance so that the result is a gorgeous, natural looking head of hair.
