HOW TO CHOOSE A METHOD THAT'S RIGHT FOR ME

OK GF we know with hair extensions, you can transform your locks from basic to baddie in no time, adding length, volume, and overall fabulousness to your tresses. The thing that is a little harder to figure out is how to choose the right method for you!


BLNDE beauty bar and Revamp Salon Co are so lucky to have an in house educator from Pony Hair Extensions,(Proudly Prairie Made) Meghan McGrath. According to her, one of the things that is most important in an extension installation is that every single set needs to be customized to your own specific needs and hair types. Even the finest hair types can benefit from the right method-although if the wrong method is used it can absolutely cause damage. When done correctly it should be seemly and almost undetectable as you can see if the picture of Meghans gorgeous client!


Of course your hairstylist and extension specialist will make recommendations but it's key you understand a little about the different types of extensions so you can make sure you know exactly what to expect. Hand-tied beaded row extensions involve weaving wefts of hair into small sections of natural hair using hand-tying and beading techniques. This method offers a natural and comfortable fit, lasting between 8 to 10 weeks. Tape-in extensions, on the other hand, use double-sided tape to adhere wefts of hair to natural hair sections, creating a seamless blend that lasts between 6 to 12 weeks. Nano extensions utilize small nano beads to attach individual hair strands to natural hair, offering a lightweight and discreet option that can last between 8 to 12 weeks. Each type provides unique benefits tailored to different preferences and needs.


IF YOU WANT VOLUME:

Tape-in extensions might be your perfect match. These extensions are great for adding fullness and body to your hair, giving you that va-va-voom effect you've been dreaming of. Maintenance for tape-in extensions is required every 6-8 weeks to keep your look fresh and flawless. The downside to this method is that is requires more frequent maintenance and it can be difficult to wear your hair up. The upside is it is usually a little more cost effective off the hop - but if you add up coming in 2-3 week earlier than other methods it evens out in the end. Nano extensions are going to be your go to if you want have ULTRA fine baby hair especially around the face wear the other two options would be too noticeable. We usually use this technique as a blending technique vs a full head.
