We offer a free no obligation consultation to decide if Micro Ring Hair Extensions are right for you. If you decide to go ahead and book a fitting we will use this time to; expertly colour match your hair and go through with you the different types of hair and lengths available to suit your needs.
A fitting of a full head of hair extensions will usually take between 3-5 hours to have installed. The metal ring is firstly applied to fine strands of your own hair, the extension hair is then clamped tightly inside the micro ring holding it securely in place alongside your natural hair. The micro rings come in a range of colours so they can be blended in with your own hair colour to ensure they do not show through. We use micro rings which have a silicone inner lining to prevent the hair extensions from slipping whilst also offering a comfortable cushion to your own hair. Up to 200 individual strands are usually applied to a full head, depending on the natural thickness of your own hair we will add more or less. Micro rings can last a minimum of three months providing you follow the aftercare instructions correctly.
A maintenance appointment is usually required around 4-6 weeks after your fitting. This involves a general tidy up of your extensions, pushing the existing micro rings back up towards the root of your hair and tightening them. This is done as your hair would have most likely grown more than half an inch since your fitting. We will also fit new hair extensions & micro rings to replace any that may have fallen out if required.
Removal simply involves clamping the rings with a pair of pliers to squeeze them open. The ring will then simply slide down your hair with the hair extension falling out, leaving your own hair in perfectly good condition. However it is important that they are removed by a professional hair extension technician to avoid any unnecessary damage to the hair. By doing it yourself or getting an unqualified person to do it for you it can cause your hair to be pulled & tagged at leading to breakage of your hair.

A. Yes, you will need to follow the aftercare instructions to keep the hair looking at its best. But you can blow dry it, straighten it, curl it, dye it whatever you choose or do usually with your own hair.
We only stock Remy hair which means that all of the cuticles are intact keeping it healthy and undamaged. The cuticle will lock in essential moisture and protect the hair against outside elements, more importantly keeping its shine and health throughout the life of the hair extensions. You will not have matting and tangling you get from non cuticle correct hair, which can appear dull, dry and lifeless and would become brittle.
