HOW TO APPLY:  Easy Loops/Micro Ring Hair Extensons
1. Section your hair at the base of the scalp using a tail comb, ensuring you make a clean line. Clip your remaining hair up out of the way.How to put in Easy Loop Micro Bead Hair Extensions
2. Take a small section of your natural hair and twist it to make handling easier. Pick up an Easy Loop strand and place your natural hair through the white plastic loop.
3. Working close to the scalp, pull the white plastic loop from the bottom and keep pulling until your natural hair is threaded through the micro bead. The white loop should now be completely free from the micro bead. We suggest keeping these incase you need to re-apply any of the strands at a later date.
4. Move the extension strand towards you scalp (not too close though, please leave enough to give a little free swing). Hold the extension hair downward, take a pair of hair extension pliers and clamp down very firmly on the micro bead. Some people clamp the bead from both the left and right to ensure a firm bond. Make sure the bead lies flat against your head.
5. Complete the row, unclip your hair and make another section a little above the first. Clip up the hair again, and work on your second row. Remember to stay in a little all the way around the hairline. By doing this you will have enough natural hair around the hair line to cover the micro beads should you wish to wear your hair up.
6. Continue inserting Easy Loops in rows until you have put in enough extension strands to give you the thickness you are wanting to acheive.

NB. If you are using Double Bead Easy Loops please treat each bead as a separate bead. Squeeze each one with the pliers to ensure the strongest bond. Do not sqeeze in the join in middle between both beads as this does not completely close each bead.

 



HOW TO APPLY:  I-Tip Hair Extensions

1. Section your hair across the back with a tail comb ensuring you make a clean line. Clip your remaining hair up out of the way.How to put in I-Tip hair extensions
2. Place a micro bead onto the pulling hook or loop.
3. Take a section of your natual hair and twist it for easier handling. Using the hook at the end of the Hook Tool grab the section of hair, or place it through the loop.
4. Pull your natual hair down through the micro bead.
5. Position the micro bead near your scalp. Please remember to leave a gap between the bead and your scalp so that the extension strand can move freely.
6. Take an I-Tip extension strand and place it inside the bead. Let it protrude through the bead approx 2mm or so.
7. Hold the extension hair and your own hair downwards so that it lays flat against your scalp, and clamp down very firmly on the micro bead with the pliers. Some people clamp the bead from the left and the right to ensure a firm bond. Make sure the bead lies flat against your scalp.
8. Complete the row, unclip your hair and make another section a little above the first. Clip up the hair again, and work on your second row. Remember to stay in a little all the way around the hairline. By doing this you will have enough natural hair around the hair line to cover the micro beads should you wish to wear your hair up.
9. Continue inserting I-Tips in rows until you have put in enough extension strands to give you the thickness you are wanting to acheive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HOW TO APPLY:  Clip In Hair Extensions
1. Section your hair where you wish to place the weft, and clip the top section of your hair up and out of the way.How to put in clip in hair extensions
2. Spray a light mist of hairspray onto your hair, and back comb/tease your hair where you want to place the weft.
3. Take one of the hair extension wefts and snap open the comb clips. Holding the middle of the weft, slide the comb clip down into you hair and snap shut. Work your way from the middle out to the outer edge.
4. Unclip your hair and let it fall down over the weft you have just placed in your hair. Then make another section just above the first.
5. Repeat the steps above for each weft section until you have them all in.

You do not always need, or want to use all the wefts in your clip in set. Only use enough to acheive the thickness you are wanting. There really is no right or wrong way to apply clip in hair sections. Just practice and you'll have it right in no time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

HOW TO APPLY:  Tape Hair Extensions
Tape Hair is the fastest growing, most popular new method ofHow to put in Tape Hair Extensions
attaching hair extensions.
Fine pieces of hair are stitched into a skin weft which has durable
double sided tape attached to each piece.

1. Wash hair first with Clarifying shampoo to remove product buildup to ensure that your hair is clean and that the extensions can grip well. Do not condition your hair.
2. Starting at the base of your scalp, section your hair into a straight line, and clip the remainder up out of the way.
3. Remove the backing tape from a piece of Tape Hair, and using a tail comb take a fine section of your own hair and place tape hair underneath close to the scalp. Please make sure to only use a very fine section of your own hair. You should still be able to see the tape through your own hair. This ensures that the tape hair can stick to itself to help it hold. Using too thick a section of your own hair will mean the tape can not stick to itself, and it may come out easily.
4. Smooth/press your hair onto the tape using the end of a tail comb. Take another piece of tape hair, remove the tape and place it over the top of the previous piece. Leave both ends of the tape free of hair so that they stick together.  Your thin section of natural hair should be "sandwiched" between the two pieces of Tape Hair Extensions. To get maximum grip on your Tape Extensions we also recommend that you use a hair straightener on medium heat and clamp over the two pieces for 2-3 seconds. This will make the adhesive tape on the tape hair warm and will stick together. Press FIRMLY with fingers along the entire length of the piece to make sure each piece is stuck firmly together. (If pieces are not stuck firmly
water can get between the two pieces when washed and they will not last as long).
5. Refrain from washing your hair for 48-72 hours to give the adhesive bonds time to adhere together properly.
6. When washing your hair keep conditioner away from the bond area. Using conditioner on the bond area may cause the tapes to fail and fall out.

HOW TO REMOVE:  Tape Hair Extensions
To remove Tape Hair Extensions you use a removal solution. Using a cotton bud dip it into the removal solution and wet the top and bottom of the tape extensions. Rub the solution into the bond area. Using the end of a tail comb slowly pry the tape apart. If it does not come away easily use more removal solution. Do not pull too much or you may damage your hair.

When the extensions have been removed clean the adhesive tape completley from the top are of the tape extensions. Leave the hair flat and let the skin weft part at the top dry completely. When dry you can retape the hair extensions with new tape and reuse them. We have replacement tape available for purchase. Buy new Tape Roll.

 

HOW TO APPLY:  Feather Hair Extensions
Feather hair extensions are applied in the same way that I-Tip hair extensions are applied.How to put in feather hair extensions

1. Section your hair with a tail comb where you want to apply the feather hair extension. Clip hair up out of the way.
2. Place a micro bead onto the pulling hook or loop.
3. Take a section of your natual hair and twist it for easier handling. Using the hook at the end of the Hook Tool grab the section of hair, or place it through the loop.
4. Pull your natual hair down through the micro bead.
5. Position the micro bead near your scalp. Please remember to leave a gap between the bead and your scalp so that the extension strand can move freely.
6. Take an feather hair extension and place the end up and into bead. Let it protrude through the bead approx 2mm or so.
7. Hold the feather extension and your own hair downwards so that it lays flat against your scalp, and clamp down very firmly on the micro bead with the pliers. Some people clamp the bead from the left and the right to ensure a firm bond. Make sure the bead lies flat against your scalp so that is does not jut outwards when clamped.
