How to Choose the Right Hair Extensions

Are you ready to try hair extensions, but not sure where to start? Finding the perfect hair extensions method and brand can seem very daunting. However, we’ve listed everything you need to make the right choice! Follow the steps below and soon you’ll have the hair of your dreams!

Compare hair extension methods

First, you need to find a hair extension method that suits your hair type and lifestyle. There are a variety of hair extensions available to meet your needs. Here are the most common hair extensions on the market.

Tape in Hair Extensions

Tape hair extensions have quickly become a favorite among stylists and clients due to their quick application time and reusability. In 60 minutes or less, you can have longer, thicker hair. In addition, depending on the brand and maintenance, hair can last up to a year. No heat, adhesives or tools are required for application, which means you won’t have to worry about damage if applied properly.

Hot Fusion or Keratin Bond

Single-strand hair extensions are applied to the hair using a Keratin U-tip bonding agent with a heating element. This method is best suited for thick and dense hair as a single application can last up to 6 months. Application may take 6-8 hours, depending on the experience of the stylist. May cause damage to natural hair as heat is required for application. Ideal for low-maintenance clients who do not want to go to the salon often or have their hair styled daily.

Cold Fusion, Micro-Links or I-tip

Another single strand extension method, however, does not require heat for application. It is done by pulling the natural hair through a small bead or lock and then securing it with a tool. Also suitable for thick and coarse hair, as the beads may be visible if your hair is fine. Application lasts 4-6 hours, but hair lasts up to 6 months.

Sew-in or Braided

For thick or heavy hair, braids are used as the basis for hair extensions, which are sewn together with pins and threads. Although no heat or glue is used in the application, tight braids may cause hair to fall out over time. For the first few days after application, clients may feel uncomfortable and even experience headaches. You will need to wash your hair regularly to prevent bacteria from forming throughout the braid.
