If you’re looking to add length, volume, or even a pop of color to your hair, hair extensions can be a great option. But with so many different types of extensions available, it can be overwhelming to decide which type is right for you. In this blog post, we’ll break down the most popular types of hair extensions and help you choose the perfect style for your needs.
At Sheer Elegance Salon & Med Spa we offer a variety of hair extension options to suit your needs. From microbead to hand tied weft extensions, we have a range of styles and colors to choose from. Our expert stylists can help you find the perfect match for your natural hair, ensuring a seamless blend and natural look.
Before we dive in, let’s take a quick look at why hair extensions are such a popular choice for so many people. For one thing, they can be a great way to switch up your look without making a permanent commitment. If you’ve always wanted long, flowing locks but don’t want to wait for your natural hair to grow, extensions can give you the length you crave in just a few hours. Additionally, hair extensions can be a great way to add volume to thin or fine hair, or even to add a pop of color without damaging your natural hair with harsh chemicals.
Now that we’ve covered some of the basics, let’s dive into the different types of hair extensions that we install at Sheer Elegance Salon & Med Spa.
Fusion extensions (I-Tip):
Fusion extensions are one of the most popular types of extensions. They involve attaching small strands of hair to your natural hair using a keratin bond. The bond is melted and fused onto your natural hair using a special tool. This method provides results that are very natural-looking and long-lasting. Fusion extensions are the best choice to add length without overloading your hair with volume.
Sew-in (Hand Tied Weft) extensions:
Sew-in extensions are the best all-around choice if you need to add both length and volume to your hair. They last for 6-12 months with proper care. To install sew-in extensions, your natural hair is braided into a base, and the extensions are then sewn onto the braids. This method can be time-consuming and requires a highly skilled hair stylist to properly install. At Sheer Elegance Salon & Med Spa, our extension specialists have advanced training and experience to create stunning results.
Microbead extensions (K-Tip):
Microbead extensions involve attaching small wefts of hair to your natural hair using tiny beads. The beads are clamped onto your natural hair, holding the extensions securely in place. This method achieves results that can be very natural-looking and can last for several months.
When it comes to choosing the right type of hair extensions for your needs, there are a few factors to consider. First, think about the look you’re trying to achieve. If you have thin hair and want to add length without over volumizing K-tip microbead or Fusion I-tip extensions might be the best choice. If you’re looking for volume and length sew-in (hand tied weft, fusion, or microbead extensions might be a better option.
Additionally, consider your natural hair type and texture. If you have thin or fine hair, fusion extensions might be the best choice since they’re lightweight and won’t weigh your natural hair down. If you have thick or coarse hair, sew-in or microbead extensions might be a better choice since they can hold up to the weight of your natural hair.
In conclusion, hair extensions can be a great way to switch up your look or add volume and length to your natural hair. With so many different types of extensions available, it’s important to choose the right style for your hair. Book a hair extension consultation with Sheer Elegance Salon & Med Spa today
