Our Chicago clip-in extensions specialists will show you how to properly remove and apply the extensions. We will color match the extensions with your natural hair so they look great too.

Tape-In Hair Extensions

Are you looking for the highest quality tape-in hair extensions in Chicago? XEX is pleased to provide tape-in extensions as an option for our clients. Tape-in extensions are long lasting and can be applied in under an hour. They are a fantastic option for those with fine or thinning hair where fusion hair extensions may not be the best option.

Application of tape-in extensions is fairly easy. The adhesive weft tape-in extensions are made by putting together single strands of cuticle-intact human hair in small sections. It is connected at the top of the weft with adhesive tape. They are applied by adhering them on both sides of your natural hair in small sections. No heat or sewing is needed to apply tape-in extensions. The extensions sit flat on your head to give a seamless, natural look.

Reusing Tape-In Extensions

If you properly take care of your tape-in extensions and have regular maintenance appointments at XEX, your tape-in extensions can last 5-8 months. You will need to have maintenance appointments every six weeks so XEX’s Chicago extensions specialists can properly reapply the tape-in extensions and ensure they last as long as possible.

If you are experiencing thinning hair, schedule a free consultation with our extensions specialist to learn how tape-in extensions can benefit you.

Micro Bead Hair Extensions

One of our specialties at XEX is micro bead extensions. Our Chicago extensions specialists are highly skilled at properly applying micro bead extensions. The result is a beautiful, seamless look.

We use only 100% human hair for our micro bead extensions.

Application of Micro Bead Extensions

XEX’s extension specialists use 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.

Micro bead extensions require no heat or chemicals for application.

Care and Maintenance of your Micro Bead Extensions

Your XEX extensions specialist will provide you specific care and maintenance instructions. You will need to have periodic maintenance appointments to ensure that your micro-bead extensions remain beautiful. When it’s time to remove your extensions, we will need to do so at XEX.

Frequently Asked Questions about Fusion Hair Extensions

How are the fusion extensions applied to my hair?

We use a low heat application method to fuse the extensions to a very small section of your natural hair. A keratinized protein bond is used to help the extensions look and feel great.

Can fusion hair extensions damage my natural hair?

Fusion hair extensions rarely cause damage to natural hair, but there is always a slight risk. It is important to use an experienced and well-trained extensions specialist, like those at XEX, when getting fusion extensions. When damage does occur, it is usually because clients leave their extensions in too long or do not have a professional remove them.

How long do fusion extensions last?

The life of fusion extensions varies depending on how long your natural hair grows. For most people, the fusion extensions last 4-6 months if you follow our care and maintenance guidelines

What hair type do fusion extensions work best with?

Medium to thicker hair types typically work best for fusion hair extensions.
