Micro Bead Hair Extensions
What are micro bead hair extensions?
Micro bead extensions are one of the most popular methods of hair extensions, often for the wrong reason clients are having this method mostly due to having a bad experience with a glued in method, or reading false information on forums that tell a client that it is the safest method of hair extensions.
All non weft hair extensions methods have been designed not to cause damage to a client’s natural hair however what will cause damage is clients not looking after the hair properly, or having hair extensions when you have been advised not to. As one of our clients you will be given a full aftercare information booklet if you follow the advice we give you and you should not have any problems.
Are the bonds big?
the bond is a small 5mm bead that has a I tip hair extension cut down to the same size so the band is very small, they are not really recommended however for fine hair as they can be a little more visible than some other methods mostly due to the colours of the bead as they are the closest match to the clients hair but may not be identical.
What is a strength test?
A strength test is where we will take a section of your hair and stretch it (elasticity test) then we will look at the cuticles on the hair to make sure they are closed. If the stylist is still unsure we told take a small razor section of the client’s hair and submerge this in water. If the test comes bake ok then the stylist will till you that there is no problems, if not they will advise you on how to build the strength up within your hair, however until the hair is stronger you would be advised against having hair extensions.
If I colour the hair extensions what will happen?
As we will only use premium quality hair extensions, we do know that they can be coloured, how ever as with all colours we can not guarantee that the colour will take first time on the extensions or that the shade can be slightly different, resulting in a two tone effect, this will not always happen we have many clients that have coloured the extensions with no problems. Mostly seems to happen with low pigmented colours like blues and pinks and coppers as they have a tendency to fade very quickly.
We do advise not to bleach hair extensions as the bonds will soften and split.
