Everyone wants to have long and luscious hair. But is your natural hair just too short right now? Perhaps you are interested in finding out more about microbead hair extensions. This is a fantastic option for women that want to add more volume and length to their natural style.
We specialise in the application of micro bead hair extensions in our Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney & Gold Coast salons. Let’s take a look and find out more about this great styling option.
Micro bead extensions are made from Remy hair, which is 100 percent human hair. They attach to the head thanks to very small and discreet beads. The hair is clamped into place, lying flat to the head and adding volume and length. There are no damaging tools involved and the application does not take that long. There are different lengths and colours to choose from.
The process of applying micro bead hair extensions is simple but it does have to be done by a professional to ensure it is done correctly. All they do is lock your natural hair into a very small bead alongside Remy hair extensions. A pair of pliers is used to clamp the hair together. The pliers that are used do not damage any of the hair so you do not have to worry. They are also easy to adjust as your natural hair grows and the process of removable is simple and safe too. The whole application process will take around one to two hours to complete in an experienced salon.
With this method you can come back in every 4-6 weeks for maintenance which involves pushing up the hair extensions to ensure they are kept neat and putting no stress/damage on your natural hair. You can keep doing maintenance until you feel that the hair needs replacing (or removing).
You can enjoy micro bead hair extensions if you have shorter hair. There are several length options that you can choose from when it comes to cutting the extensions in. It is recommended that your natural hair is close to shoulder length before getting extensions and this will allow them to blend with your natural hair and look good. The last thing you want are the attachments to show or it to look unnatural.
Micro bead hair extensions are applied in individual 1-gram strands. How many micro bead hair extensions you will need depends on what you want to achieve. For example, if you are wanting to add some volume to your natural hair or highlights, it is recommended to go with 75 to 100 strands. If you want to add some length and volume too, you would want to increase the strands up to 120 strands. You can increase this as much as 150 strands if you really want your hair to look thick and luscious.
When you have micro bead hair extensions, you can still style them just like your natural hair. The good thing is that you are able to use heating tools to straighten and curl your hair. For example, it is sometimes recommended to keep heat away from near tape hair extensions tips. But there are no real restrictions on this when it comes to micro bead hair extensions. In addition, you can tie your hair up without fear of anyone seeing the attachments. The beads are small and hidden close to the scalp.
In general, you can wear micro bead extensions for a long time with regular maintenance. A lot of the Remy microbead hair extensions can last up to six or twelve months. It is recommended to avoid oil-based products on the hair and using it close to the beads.
A great thing about micro bead hair extensions is that they are reusable. This means that once you pay out for the Remy hair extensions, you can definitely get your money’s worth.
One of the reasons that clients love micro bead hair extensions is because they will not damage your natural hair. This means that your hair can grow healthily while you enjoy wearing long and luscious extensions. They are applied without any need for using heating tools, glue or any other chemicals. What’s more, when they are applied, they will not put pressure on your natural hair. They are gentle and lightweight, which means they will not pull or feel uncomfortable.
