U Tip Fusion Hair Extensions

Hot Fusion Hair Extensions

What are hot fusion extensions?

Hot fusion hair extensions (also known as keratin or bonded hair extensions) are the most popular type of hair extensions on the market. It is intricate and can be time consuming — but it’s the best bang for your buck.

Not only do these little gems last 2-4 months with proper care, but they are available in a wide range of colours, lengths and textures. They can also be dyed, curled, straightened — whatever floats your boat!

How are hot fusion hair extensions applied?

Strands of hair are pre-tipped with a keratin bond at the top. This bond is heated and then applied to your natural hair in very small sections.

Are hot fusion hair extensions safe?

Yes! Keratin is already part of what makes your hair — well, hair! The tool used to heat up the bond is about as hot as a straightening iron, so it’s completely safe. (That being said, you obviously have to try to avoid hitting the bonds when using hot tools on your hair — but that’s easy!)

Will my hair fall out if I use hot fusion hair extensions?

No, your hair will not fall out if applied correctly. Obviously, your hair needs to be in good condition to start with. You will, however, notice that when you take your extensions out, there will be some extra hair shed. Don’t panic! This is totally normal! Humans are meant to lose around 100 strands per day naturally — and, obviously, when your hair is bonded, it has no where to go during the duration of your extensions.

This method is perfect for adding both length and volume.


 

Euro-Lock Micro-Ring hair extensions 2

Euro-Lock/Micro-Rings

What are Euro-Lock/Micro-Ring hair extensions?

Euro-Locks and/or Micro-rings (let’s just call them Euro-locks, shall we?) are similar to the bonded method mentioned above, when it comes to placement on the head and sections of hair that the extensions are attached to. However, the main difference is that when the hair is attached in the small sections, it is clamped on with a tiny ring, instead of heated keratin.

There isn’t glue, sewing, braiding or heat needed and you can reuse the hair as yours grows. Down side, these extensions aren’t as durable as bonds — but are great if you’re looking for something secure (as opposed to clip-ins, for example), but not as long lasting as the bonded method.

This method is perfect for adding both length and volume.


 

Tape In Extensions

Tape Extensions

What are tape-in extensions?

In terms of technology, tape in extensions are the new kid on the block (cue Donny Wahlberg!) Back in the day, hair would be applied in a similar fashion, with latex glue and weft hair (hair sewn together in a long line, then cut into pieces — about the size of clip-ins these days) — which, as you could imagine — was not the easiest thing to get out (seriously, been there, done that!)

Now, we have the taped extensions — which are almost exactly as they sound!

These beauties use hair tape and most resemble clip-in extensions — just using tape, instead of clips. Hair is separated into very thin rows (about 1-2 inches long) and sandwiched between two sections of hair, as pictured above.

Typically the tape method can last up to 1-2 months before it starts to slip out of hair.

This method is perfect for adding length.
