Microrings/Microbeads Hair Extensions - Our most popular method

Lightweight, metal rings are applied to the client's natural hair using no glues, heat or chemicals. The rings come in a variety of shades, laced with a silicone inner, thus providing a comfortable cushion for the hair. The silicone lining reduces the additional shedding of the client's natural hair in between maintenances. This is due to the metal rings not rubbing directly against the hair. The rings clamp securely in place. The client is to return every 6-8 weeks to undergo a  maintenance appointment. A ring allergy test must be performed with this method at consultation and signed off before installation.
