3 Common Types of Hair Extensions Offered by Professional Hairdressers

Jan 21, 2022

Is your short hair making your beauty incomplete? With the advancement in the beauty industry, short hair is no longer a problem. Hair extensions are a saviour for those who have short hair problems. You can now get synthetic and human hair extensions that will look similar to the existing hair that you have on your head. Human hair extensions are exactly what they sound like. They are made from Deonar hair and don’t create any tingling sensation or any other side effects after the extension process has been undertaken.

On the contrary, synthetic hair extensions are made of fibres that are usually very fine to imitate real human hair. For any hair extension desire, approach professional hairdressers in Dorking. Read on to know more about the types of hair extensions that you can avail.

Clip in Hair Extensions

In this hair extension process, clips are attached to the base of the extended hair to tie it up with the natural pieces of hair. This is not a permanent extension style. You can easily remove the clip in hair extensions and get back the original hairstyle. Clip-in hair extensions are sometimes damaging as they involve chemical reaction heat and pressure. However, if you want to get long and lustrous hair for a party, clip in hair extensions is the best option that you can avail yourself of.

Tape-in Hair Extensions

The extensions are pre-taped or glued together with the original hair strands. In this process, the pins are used to align the synthetic hair strands with the roots of the original hair. This process usually takes 40 minutes to 1 hour and can be reused later. Once you are done with this extension process, you have to be very careful while using shampoo and conditioners on your hair. This can cause the tape to become loose without you noticing the difference.

Sew in Hair Extensions

This hair extension method is more permanent when compared to the two above. Artificial hair strands are weaved with the natural hair using a needle and thread in this method. This method is usually used for people with thick hair because of how the process is being applied. Weave application is a time-consuming process, and if your hair is thin or lighter, this extension process may not work on fine the same.
