Skin Weft hair extensions is applied to the scalp with a double sided tape method. A thin portion of your hair is sandwich between two pieces of the skin weft human hair and sealed with a low heat for security. This application is great for thin or fine hair as its lays very flat and feels like your natural hair as well as gives your natural hair more volume and length. The skin weft application can be worn as your natural hair and can last 4-5 weeks before they need to be removed and reinstalled.
The Braided Weft Sew In is applied by braiding the clients natural hair (in a specific pattern or individual rows) and weft hair is attached using a needle and nylon thread to sew the weft hair onto the braids. This technique has been proven to promote hair growth (when maintained properly) and does not include clips, glue, wax, bonding or any other products to successfully install the extensions. The braided technique is recommended to add length, fullness and texture to the clients natural hair. When maintained properly this technique can last up to two months.
One Step Wefts, also known as the “braidless sewn-ins”, are installed using beads and weft hair. This method is very similar to the braided sew-in, except there is no braid necessary to install the hair for this technique. Using a thin portion of the clients natural hair, a ringlet is attached and the clients natural hair and the ringlet is then squeezed together. The weft is then attached by sewing over each bead to create a very flat and natural look. This technique is recommended for cleints with long hair looking to add fullness, color or and/or length.
Micro Links are applied using ringlets, a thin portion of the clients natural hair with the micro link ring is squeezed together, in order to secure the extensions. This technique does not include bonding, glue, wax or any other type of product and will not harm the clients natural hair follicles. Micro-links are recommended to add length and fullness to fine textured hair. The number of links applied are based on the overall desired look as well as texture, length and fullness of the clients natural hair. When cared properly Micro-Links can last up to 4 months.
Keratin Tips are pre-tipped pieced (dipped in a protein wax) hair that are used to extend the length of the hair. This method includes bonding the natural hair with the extensions by using a heated tool. This technique is recognized as the fastest and simplest extension technique and we recommended this technique for clients who want to add length to their natural hair. The number of tips applied are based on the overall desired look as well as texture, length and fullness of the clients natural hair. We also offer the Keratin technique using weft hair, at an additional charge. For protection of your natural hair, we strongly recommend that clients return to Just Extensions to have their Keratin-Tip extensions professionally removed.
Clip- In hair extensions are lightweight and can easily and quickly be applied to add length and/or volume to hair without damaging the natural hair. This technique does not require a commitment and is recommended for clients looking to add fullness, color and/or length for a special occasion.
