Beautifully Aesthetic use a variety of methods for applying the hair extensions, we use Micro Bead, Nano Bead, Weave and Fusion.
Micro and Nano Ring
Micro ring (also known as micro-bead or micro loop), Nano ring (also known as a nano bead or nano loop) are where hair extensions use small metal rings or beads (usually )aluminum) and can sometimes be lined with a silicone ring to attach the extension hair. They are applied and fixed to small sections of natural hair and tightened using a special tool that clamps the bead around the natural hair.
The micro and nano beads are designed to be small enough so that they are not visible in normal use, this is also helped with the beads being various colours to match your hair colour. Every two to three months as the natural hair grows they will need to be re-positioned as the micro-beads move away from the scalp.
As they do not use heat or adhesives, these hair extensions should cause less damage than some types of extensions, if placed correctly and properly taken care of. The sizing makes a difference on the weight of the extensions, the feel, and the visibility. Some micro-beads are so tiny that they mimic a non surgical hair transplant.Today, there are many sizes available for micro rings/beads from about 1.5–5.5 mm (0.059–0.217 in). As your stylist when installing the extensions we should be able to determine what size micro rings/beads are best for your hair length and texture, prior to installation on your head.
The rings will need to be re-positioned after approximately every 2-3 months as your hair grows longer.
This involves a machine similar to a hot glue gun used to attach human hair extensions to individual strands of your natural hair of about 1/8 to 1/4 inch squared sections for a truly amazing authentic look. Another option for fusion attachments is using hair which is pre-tipped with a keratin adhesive. A heat clamp is then used to melt the adhesive to attach the extension hair to your natural hair. Fusion weave allows washing hair frequently and the use of regular hair products such as hair gels. This technique is very time consuming taking 3 or more hours. As your hair grows you will need to have them re-positioned every 2-3 months . This method is more damaging to the hair due to the various chemicals. It can cause scalp irritation and hair loss.
A hair weave is artificial or human hair used in the integration with your natural hair. Weaves can alter your appearance for short or long periods of time by adding further hair to one's natural hair or by covering the natural hair all together with human or synthetic hair. Weaving additional human or synthetic pieces can enhance one's hair by giving it volume, length and adding color without the damage of chemicals or adopting a different hair texture than that of their own. However, hair loss can occur either along the front hairline or above the ears due to the wearing of specific hair styles for a prolonged period of time, such as weaves. Such hair loss in known as traction alopecia.
In the early days of Ancient Egypt came the idea of the hair weave and extensions. To obtain the more elegant appearance for the men and women in Eygpt they chose these extensions. By the late 17th century, wigs in various shapes and sizes became a latest fashion trend. Hair weaves in particular, did not grow interest until the 1950s; even during that time celebrities had been the only ones using them. When the "long, disco-haired" era evolved there became a widespread use of hair weave. Since that era, hair weave has only become more popular. Most human hair weaves come from Asian countries like India and China.
