Micro Bead Hair Extensions At our salon, one of our specialties is applying micro bead hair extensions for our clients in Chicago. Micro Bead hair basically eliminates the need for glue when lengthening hair. With a keen eye for placement, a professional hairdresser establishes areas of your head where the links will be attached.
Everyone has their own techniques applying links, but I will try to explain what I’ve found to work best. Using a special tool, I run your own natural hair through the tiny Micro Bead Hair Extensions ring and then loop it up toward the scalp, while holding it in place. Next, I gently push through a high quality, I-Tip hair extension into the same link where your natural hair is already parked. To make for an invisible hair appearance, I softly bring the link down from the scalp about 1cm, in so that there is room for styling. With both real hair and extension in place, I simply clamp the bead closed, which seamlessly locks everything together. This process is then repeated over and again throughout various areas of the head. Wherever you get your extensions done, check to see that the cosmetologist does not let the I-Tip Remy hair extensions strands protrude the end of the bead too far when clamped shut. This will prevent unwanted slipping. I always use 100% real human hair when performing extensions because its important to establish an indistinguishable look.

Wherever you get your extensions done, check to see that the cosmetologist does not let the I-Tip Remy hair extensions strands protrude the end of the bead too far when clamped shut. This will prevent unwanted slipping. The micro link method can bring about long flowing hair extensions that last several months before a touch-up is needed. I do suggest regular maintenance visits every 3-4 months. One of the benefits of getting micro/ring hair extensions is that neither heat nor chemicals are used. A draw back can be that the rings can sometimes be noticed if the right type isn’t used, or if they are not applied correctly. Video courtesy of www.youtube.com. The music is a bit cheesy but the example is excellent. No matter if you’re African American, Caucasian, Asian or Spanish, this hair extensions method works. Your hair will need to be 4 to 5 inches long prior to having extensions. Call us today to learn more information about micro ring hair extensions, available in Chicago.
