With so many different hair extensions and extension methods, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. Usually, extensions themselves get all the talk, but today we are going to go over the variety of hair extension methods so you can decide which one is right for you. While each technique is different and unique, all of our methods are safe, effective, and proven!

If you are a stylist, this is going to be even more important for you as it is your job to help your client get the hair they love. Now you can discover the pros and cons of each method and determine which installation will be best for your client. 

Natural Beaded Rows

The renowned hand-tied and hybrid extensions use the natural beaded row method. Naturally beaded hair does not use excess heat, adhesives, or chemicals in the installation; instead, use evenly distributed beads attached to your natural hair and the wefts. Natural beaded rows are great for discreetly adding length and volume while allowing you to live your day-to-day life.

Natural beaded rows are a versatile and all-around solution for all hair types. They provide discreetness as well as stunning aesthetics and longevity. 

Why Not? Natural Beaded Extensions? 

The natural beaded extensions take more time and are more difficult to install, so we have created an informative class you can take online.  

Tape-In Extensions: 

Tape-in extensions use medical-grade adhesive and sandwich the natural hair in-between two wefts or a weft and a backing for fine hair. This makes tape-in extensions very well-rounded as they can be used with thin or thick hair. You can learn how to install tape-ins professionally with our online course.

Why Tape-In? 

Tape-in extensions are fast and easy to install, versatile, and look and feel great. 

Why Not Tape-In Cons? 

Tape-in extensions use adhesives which some people would prefer not to use. 

Kera-Link Extensions:

Kera-link extensions are one of the oldest extension methods, which is done by fusing keratin bonds with a special heat tool. Kera-link lasts 3-4 months and offers the ability to be cut and styled to the client's preferences.

Why Kera-Link Extension?

Kera-Link has proven itself for decades and is still widely utilized today. 

Why Not Kera-Link? 

Kera-Link uses excess heat, which could damage the hair, only lasts 3-4 months, and other installation methods have surpassed it. 

I-Link Extensions:

I-Link extensions are installed by weaving micro-beads into the hair and adding the wefts as flat as possible. I-Link is not very discreet, making it a better option for medium to thick hair. The I-link extensions only last 2-3 months but can be reused.

Why I-Link? 

I-Link is good for creating natural, seamless looks due to the microbeads and individualized installation and can be reused for savings. 

I-Link Cons? 

I-Links do not last long (2-3 months) and are unsuitable for thin hair.
