The Different Types of Application Methods for Hair Extensions

May 29, 2015 · Posted in: Blog, Extensions, Hair

Hair extensions can be applied in many different ways. At XEX, we select the method that will work best for the client based on their needs and lifestyle. Below is an explanation of the different hair extension application methods used.

Fusion Bonded Strands

With the fusion method, small sections of hair extensions are attached to your existing hair with a bonding agent. The bonding agent is applied very carefully by your XEX stylist and a Keratin protein tip is attached. You can order strands in many different colors. Your stylist can use fusion extensions to give you natural-looking highlights if that is the style you are going for.


Tape-In Hair Extensions

With tape-in extensions, we use human hair, adhesive weft extensions. Heat and tools are not needed to apply for tape-in extensions. They are created so they can lay seamlessly in your hair. The weft tape-in extensions can be reapplied multiple times. With tape-in extensions, you can enjoy your new look for about six weeks from each application.


Micro Bead Hair Extensions

If you’re not a fan of glue, microbead extensions are a great option. A professional can make micro bead extensions look great. The stylist uses a special tool to run your natural hair through the extension’s ring, then loop it toward the scalp while holding it in place. The extension is then attached to the ring where the natural hair is. When both the natural hair and the extensions are in place, a bead is clamped in place. This process is repeated until the extensions are complete.


Clip-In Hair Extensions

Clip-in extensions are a great choice for those looking for a more temporary option. The extensions are clipped to your existing hair around the scalp. They can look great if applied correctly and come in a variety of different colors.
