Every client has different hair density, and length or volume choices. Hair extensions come in all different lengths, ranging from 8 inch to 24 inches and are priced accordingly.
FUSION/ KERATIN BOND/ PRE-BONDED
This is one of the most popular, longest lasting methods. They are attached to the hair with a keratin or plastic and silicone bond. Hair Dreams and Great Lengths are two of the leaders in this market. Both companies have perfected this technique. With proper maintenance, these will last 4 to 6 months. The hair is not reusable and the system has to be completely taken out and new hair has to be reordered with removal and application. The bonds are so small and non-detectable, that they are recommended for all hair types.
Nano rings are a single strand method. The hair is applied strand by strand. The rings need to be re applied over time and moved up the hair strand. The hair is reusable. This is a very popular system
Weft extensions can be applied using different methods. They are perfect for adding volume, or lengthening.
Teri chooses to use a method called “beaded weft extensions”. This is a method that allows the hair to fall in the natural growth without pulling the natural hair and breaking it like traditional braided methods. The bead will also last longer than thread that will break down over time with everyday washing and styling. The weft itself will last a long time with proper maintenance. Hair quality can be found in a wide array depending on how much you want to invest. They will need to be adjusted every 6 to 8 weeks and moved up as your hair grows out. Since the wefts can be a bit bulkier, these are recommended for average to thick hair.
