People often ask us what type of hair extensions will work best for their clients. Not every person has the same hair, or is looking for the same thing, so the answers will vary depending on your client’s hair texture.

Daily Wear

Clip In’s

There aren’t a lot of options for someone who wants extensions for a day. The most popular would be clip in extensions. They usually don’t take very long to put in and can generally be done on your own.

**Things to remember** Keeping clip in extensions on for an extended time will cause your hair to break. Remember to take them out daily and do not sleep with them in.

Permanent

This is where you will have most of your hair extension options. Most hair extension methods last anywhere from 4 weeks to 3 months.

Tape in

Tape in extensions have gained significant popularity over the last 2 years. People are unsure about having tape put in their hair, but tape is actually less damaging than other hair extension methods. Tape in extensions are great for women who want to keep their extensions in for 6-8 weeks. This method is not recommended for extremely thin hair.

Micro Link

This method is done by using little beads/rings. Your hair is pulled through the ring and then the ring is compressed to ensure a strong hold. The hold time is 2-3 months with this method. This method is not recommended for people with short or thin hair.

Keratin

Will take longer to install than most other permanent methods, but will last up to 3 months. The biggest downfall is that if you have thin or weak hair, this will not last and will pull out your hair. The keratin is a protein based polymer that is clear and will match any hair color.
