There are so many different hair extensions to choose from that picking the right one for your hair can seem like a daunting task. Here’s a look at the different types of hair extensions available.

Pre-Bonded Hair Extensions

Pre-bonded hair extensions, also known as fusion hair extensions, are a really popular choice amongst hair enthusiasts because it’s considered the most discreet. The hair is attached directly to your hair via a keratin bond. The pre-bonded hair extensions are literally fused onto your hair, with the use of a connector. Using keratin infused bonds is excellent for strength and durability. Many women with short hair love to use pre-bonded hair extensions because of how easily the extensions blend in with the hair.

Weft Hair Extensions

Weft Hair Extensions are great for the girl who doesn’t want a permanent commitment. It’s also a really affordable option. Weft hair extensions can be sewn in, glued in or clipped into the hair, depending on your choice of application. You can style this hair just like you would your own. One of the highlights of weft hair extensions is that the install and removal is quick and easy. This easy-breezy style would be a top choice for the girl who doesn’t want to spend a huge amount of time in the salon. Just select your style and colour, clip in and you’re ready to go!

Tape Hair Extensions

If you’re looking for another quick and non-committal style option, then tape hair extensions may be the way to go. These are semi-permanent extensions that are pre-taped and then applied onto the hair via tape. Your hair is then sandwiched in between the tape hair extension. What makes these particular hair extensions a winner is that it is 100 per cent natural, and requires no chemicals or tools. Health score! It’s also super easy to apply, even novices can do them from home, and it has a super long shelf life. If applied properly, this style can last up to three months. This style is a favourite amongst thin/fine haired women. If you’re short on time, and need to style many heads, then go for the tape hair extensions.

Micro Ring Hair Extensions

Micro ring hair extensions, also known as micro loop or micro bead hair extensions are extensions that are looped in between the natural hair, and enclosed with either a copper, or silicone ring. The ring is then clamped down onto the loop with metal pliers. But the best part is that this install requires no heat or glue, resulting in a healthy hair approach. The hair can also be reused, which means you’ll ultimately get more bang for your buck. Now you’re left over funds can go towards experimenting with other fun hair extensions. Another stand out feature is the fact that these loops can be moved up and down the hair shaft. Having extensions with this type of flexibility is a must for those who love to switch up their hairstyle and often! You can wear your hair all the way up, and no one will detect that you’re wearing extensions. It’s no wonder that micro hair extensions have been a favourite amongst celebrities for years! This option is great if you want to be able to dye your hair extensions and/or use a lot of product, or do heat styling.

Nano Ring Hair Extensions

Nano ring hair extensions are highly innovative. The rings used to attach to the hair are so small that they’re virtually undetectable. The Nano ring application is similar to the micro hair extension application. The Nano ring is slipped onto individual strands of hair, followed by the wire tip of a Remy hair strand, and then pulled through the back of a ring and clamped flat. This method is super quick and easy. Using these, aluminium wire tipped, extensions are great for the health of your real hair, because it doesn’t require any glue or heat. Of the different ring applications, the Nano install is the quickest and the rings are the smallest. The result? A natural, glamorous look that all of your friends will be envious of.
