What are hair extensions or weaves?
This is adding hair to your own natural hair by various means of applications such as gluing, sewing, clipping, braiding or bonding.
How are extensions applied?
Weaving – This is a process which you create a corn row or track around the head and close to the scalp. Extension hair is sewn on the tracks. Finally, your own hair covers the tracks for a natural look.
Bonding – This is the easiest method. Bonding glue is applied onto the weft of the extension hair and then applied at the root of your hair. This is a temporary method.
Clip-ins – Clips are sewn onto hair wefts. You may clip these in and out yourself. Clips can be purchased from us.
Micro-Links – This method uses no glue, no heat, no remover and also no damage to the hair. Small circular links are used. Your own hair is pulled through in small pieces with a tool that looks like a crochet hook then the pre-tipped hair is put inside the link and it is squeezed tight. To remove use small pliers to open the link. Hair can be reused.

Will anyone know I am wearing them?
Moisture is the most important thing. Please do not use products for oily hair or strippers that take out chlorine or product build up. These leave the hair dry.

Will anyone know I am wearing them?

Can I wear my clip-in extensions to bed?
We recommend taking them out before your go to bed. This keeps the hair from tangling while sleeping and they are easy to put back in. The great advantage to clip-in extensions is being able to take them off at night.
Can I make highlights and lowlights with clip-in extensions?
Yes, this is also a great way to save your hair from the damage coloring can do. Choose 1 set of clip-ins to match your base color and choose 1 set in a shade lighter for highlights or darker for low lights. Clip them in alternating the colors.
