Why Micro Ring Attachment?

Using Micro Rings (aka links, beads, tubes, cylinders) to attach hair extension strands to your own hair is a healthy-to-your-hair way to wear extensions. No chemicals like glue requiring heat are used in this process of attachment. Instead, the Micro Rings are applied “cold” using only a pliers-like tool. They go on easy by simply flattening the ring down with the pliers. They come off easy by reshaping the ring to be round again. The extensions slip right off. To get glued-in hair extensions off requires a solvent (acetone) to dissolve the glue enough so that the hair extension can come off your own hair strand. Which method would you rather have touching your hair?


Matching the Hair Extension Curl Pattern to Your Own Hair

During the initial consultation, we always ask you what your hair’s natural curl pattern is. When your hair dries naturally is it curly, wavy, or straight? It’s important to match your natural curl pattern with the hair extensions that go into your hair for several reasons. First you want the hair extensions to look totally natural and blend with your own hair. Second, it gives you many styling options. You can style your hair by not drying it at all for a natural look, straighten it with a flat iron, or curl it using a curling iron or rollers. If you mismatch the curl pattern on the hair extension with your own hair, you’ll be stuck with having to style it every single time you wash your hair so that the entire head of hair behaves the same way.

Highlighting Your Face

No matter if you are a brunette or blonde, one allover hair color makes a round face look heavy.  Adding highlights or lowlights around your face gives you the illusion of a thinner, longer face.  For example, brunettes can add a few caramel-colored strands around the face and for blondes, face framing light blonde colored strands will do the trick.

Interestingly, hair extensions can do this for you without the expense of having your hair lightened (or darkened) using chemicals.  A few human hair extension strands (2 to 4 strands on each side) can be attached around your face to add color dimension.

For about $40 to $80 you can create face framing highlights that will not damage your own hair and are removable.
