BEAUTY WORKS & HAIR REHAB LONDON
These are award winning brands and are a celebrity favourite. This hair comes double drawn for maximum thickness, with a huge range of colours available so a perfect colour match is achievable. Each strand is 1g.
I-tips (also known as micro rings) are one of the most popular methods here at The Hair Extension Lounge & are the safest methods on the market. Individual silicone lined micro rings are placed onto a strand of hair and kept 1cm away from your scalp, an I-tip strand is then placed inside the ring and secured using a plier, closing together the natural hair and the extension. The Nano ring is applied the same however it is quarter the size of the Micro ring, creating the smallest most discreet form of an individual extension. These are a strand by strand method which create the most free flowing hair styles & mimics the feel of natural hair. As they are so light weight causing no tension to natural hair this method is suitable for all hair types & lengths.
This method is the most cost-effective way to achieve that luxurious long hair we all dream about! This is a braidless sew in method which is extremely discreet, sits flat to the head and is an alternative to the braided technique. Small silicone lined micro rings are attached in rows to small sections of your hair and then closed with pliers to secure it in place. The weft is then cut to the individual’s size and sewn onto the rings, between the bead and hair, using thread. This method is super quick and can create envious length & thickness in around 1 hour. Most suitable for medium to thick hair
Tape extensions are a new method which are quickly growing in popularity They are a cross between the bond and the weft extensions to create miniature wefts that are around 1inch wide and fuse together like a sandwich, closing the natural hair in-between. They are placed slightly away from the root to ensure flexibility in movement when having hair up and are completely discreet, comfortable to wear & cause no damage at all to your own hair.
