What are Brazilian Knot Hair Extensions?
The extensions are applied strand by strand with a special thread technique. This creates the versatility of a fusion technique without using potentially harmful substances on your hair such as keratin glue.
The Benefits of getting Brazilain Knot Hair Extensions:
Compared to the pinch braid technique this extensions application allows for a very small install.
The Strands are very light and therefore they do not pull on your hair as much as the glue. They will last (depending on the growth of your hair) between 4 to 6months.
This technique is causes less stress on you hair and is therefore more healthy for hair because it does not use any bonding material- simply elastic thread.
This also makes the removing process easy, and if you are careful you can do it at home.You basically just snip off the elastic thread!
Brazilian knots create a very natural hair extensions wear, with a lot of versatility.
Who should not get Brazilian Knot Hair Extensions?
You must go to a stylist that is gentle on your hair. When applying this technique there is a bit of pulling, tucking and twisting of your natural hair in order to put in the string securely.
This hair addition method is a bit more time consuming than the comparable fusion technique. The technique usually takes about 4-6 hours to apply.

Micro Ring Extension
Micro rings hair extensions are a fairly recent innovation and have quickly become a very popular option for a number of reasons. With other hair extension types there was often a need for compromise between suitability for home use, discreetness, reusability, look and durability but with micro rings hair extensions this problem does not exist.
Short and fine hair
Unlike some hair extension types such as braiding and weaving you can use micro rings hair extensions with short and fine hair. Braids and weaves need a certain length of hair to allow for tension and fine hair may easily break under tension: you may also get headaches from these methods. Hair as short as 1 or 2 inches can be used with micro rings hair extensions and blended in with the extensions for a natural look.
The discreetness of micro rings hair extensions is only really challenged by glue in extensions. Both types of extensions attach close to the scalp discretely. Micro rings hair extensions though are especially hard to see as the extension attaches to the hair directly. If someone takes a close look at your scalp they will still struggle to spot the micro rings especially as they usually match the colour of the hair.
Safe to Use
With glue in hair extensions you need to use glue of course but also with hot fusion you need to use heat. The glue some people are allergic to and others will find irritates their scalp. The heat may burn the scalp and both the glue and the heat may damage the hair. Also when you come to remove glue in extensions it can be difficult to remove them without damaging your hair furtheror taking some of it with the extensions. As for braids and weaves the tension they have to be put in at pulls your own hair from the scalp and can lead to tension alopecia and also severe headaches.
Long term or short term use
You can easily remove micro ring hair extensions and because they are also easy to put in it doesn’t matter if you want to use them for a long or short period of time, the low cost also means that you don’t end up getting poor value if you only use them for a day or so. If you do use them long term they should stay in your hair without problems, though they may need to be repositioned as your hair grows. If you buy virgin (unprocessed) Remy hair it will last longer as it will still have the cuticle in tact with all strands in each weft pointing in the same direction that they originally grew.
Reusable and repositionable
Micro rings hair extensions can easily be taken out in such a way that they can be reused by de-flattening the ring to release them. This makes them great value even if you only use them for a day or so at a time. Also you can reposition micro rings hair extensions easily either if you add them in the wrong position or where your hair grows so you need to move them so they are higher up on your scalp.

Pre Bonded Hair Extension
Pre-bonded hair extensions are a popular choice for those looking to have extensions permanently applied for longer term wear.
How long will my pre-bonded hair last?
Pre-bonded extensions should have an average life of anywhere from 3 to 4 months. This is only if they are applied and cared for correctly. Your salon should invite you back for regular maintenance visits as well!
Can I straighten or curl my prebonded hair?
Absolutely! In fact you can treat them just like you would your own hair! Just remember, like your own hair, human hair extensions are not indestructible. So treat them with care and respect! Using a heat protector spray will help too! And be sure to avoid applying heat directly to the bonds!

from £100 to £200
Micro Weft Extension
Micro Weft Hair Extensions is a brilliant method which is completely glue and heat free.
Micro Weft Hair Extensions involves using a weft of hair which is a long seam that the hair is attached to at the top (like used for clip-in extensions).
Wefts of hair come in a variety of colours, lengths up to 22 inches and styles i.e. straight, body wave, curly and different hair textures i.e. Remy, European or Yaki
Micro Weft Hair Extensions add instant volume and length to your own hair ideal for bridal hair or any special occasion or just bored of waiting for your own hair to grow and want an instant change.
Micro Weft Hair Extensions is a great budget buster and fantastic for people who want to try Hair Extensions for the first time.
How does it work?
Micro Weft Hair Extension application method is much quicker than the individual strand by strand micro ring or pre bonded method.
Because there are less micro rings that have to be applied to the hair weft this dramatically reduces fitting time.
The weft of hair is placed horizontally in strips against the head.
Small sections of hair and hair from the weft are gently pulled through micro rings which are clamped down to secure the weft is in place, these sections are placed ¾ inch apart.
This is continued in sections until almost reaching the top of the head.
Like the application process the removal process is just as quick.
Micro Weft Hair Extensions are the same as knots, Micro Ring or Pre Bonded Hair Extensions they are un-detectable with hair up.
How long does my own hair have to be?
Minimum length approximately 5-6 inches.
How long does it take to apply the Micro Weft Hair Extensions?
Application takes approx 2-3 hours depending on your own hair and thickness.
How long does the Micro Weft Hair Extensions last?
With care and regular repositioning of rings they can last up to 2-4 months.
How do Micro Weft Hair Extensions feel compared to knots, Micro Ring or Pre-bonded Hair Extensions?
Micro Weft Hair Extensions can feel heavier but with all hair extensions it may take a few days to get used to them.
What is repositioning of the Micro Weft Hair Extensions?
Repositioning of rings is where your own hair has grown and new rings are replaced and the weft is moved back the original position, which is usually required every 4-6 weeks depending how fast your hair grows.
