MICRO RINGS Hair Extensions

Also know as Micro Link / Micro Locs / Micro Bead / Micro Loop Hair Extensions

Applying the hair extensions

LONG TERM WEAR – INDIVIDUAL STRAND METHOD

This method is completely glue, heat and chemical free.

Micro rings & Micro Locs (also known as micro links and micro beads) are small metal rings coated in plastic to provide comfort and cushioning to your scalp during wear. As there are a variety of different types, colours, shapes and sizes available, your technician will select the most appropriate attachment rings for you.

Traditional micro rings are lined with silicone to help prevent slipping and are still popular with some clients. In our experience however, we find most clients prefer Micro Locs (Copper Tubes) these days. Micro locs (similar to Easilocs) sit particularly flat against your scalp once fitted correctly and are exceptionally discreet. These can be a great option for clients with finer hair who find that traditional micro rings either slip or are difficult to hide.

Small sections of your own hair are gently pulled through the rings. Hair extension strands are placed inside these rings and then the micro rings are squeezed shut using specialist hair extension pliers. This in effect clamps the hair extensions to your own natural hair.

Each fitting should last at around 3-4 months with correct care. Basic maintenance is advised every 6-8 weeks and a full move up is required by 12-14 weeks on average. A long term, cost effective method as the extension hair can be removed and re-fitted if still in good condition.

This type of hair extension is particularly good for blending balayage, ombre and root drag / root stretch colour techniques. It is also an excellent option for clients who regularly need to colour their roots as unlike other methods, the rings shouldn’t be affected by careful, occasional hair dye exposure.

This method is a favourite amongst celebrities and is the main method used by top London and Manchester salons “Tatiana Hair Extensions”.

(N.B – Not suitable for clients with excessively weak or very fine hair.)
