Extension Methods & Hair

Bold City Hair thrives on staying up to date in the industry by offering clients the latest semi-permanent hair extension methods on the market. With this in mind, favored methods are those applied strand by strand and hair pieces. This is because Bold City Hair has absolute confidence that these methods of application provide the safest and most natural looking hair extensions. Strand-by-strand hair extensions create a free-flowing hairstyle, exactly like your natural hair and therefore enables your scalp to ‘breath.’ Since lots of individual hair extensions are applied, each one is virtually weightless, ensuring that the natural hair is not overloaded with too much weight. This prevents the weakening of the hair and breakage. Professional hair extensions are designed to be equally balanced with your natural hair, and are applied on a weight for weight ratio, which prevents causing tension on your hair and scalp. By applying lots of individual strands this allows the extensions to be distributed evenly over the head, and limits the possibility of causing any tension or damage to the natural hair. Bold City Hair extensions are extremely comfortable, they do not feel heavy and you should barely be able to sense they are there!

The method you chose or the method that may be recommended to you at consultation stage greatly depends on your hair type.

Hand tied extensions

Hand-Tied Extensions are where the wefts are added to your hair by beading and then hand-tying the wefts to your natural hair. The average amount of wefts are 10-12 in each head if you’re trying to achieve length, and two rows. The hand tied extensions last about 6-8 weeks, but it depends on the growth rate of your own hair. This is by far the least invasive method of hair extensions to be used on your hair in the market today. I am a certified Platform Hair Extension Specialist.

Fusions

Also called ‘hot fusion‘ or keratin bonds. The original strand by strand hair extension system, fusion bonds consist of the extension strand and the natural hair being blended together by the use of a heated applicator and the pre-applied keratin glued tip. The resin is gently rolled to form a hard, cylindrical bond or ‘seal.’ Very secure hold and great for grease-prone and fine hair.

I-Tip

Also called micro-ring, micro-link, and beads. The second invention of strand by strand hair extension application after fusion bonds, are 3mm (ideal for finer hair), 4mm or 5mm rings (ideal for medium or thick hair). These are placed between the natural hair and the extension strand and pressed together securely. The hair extension connections are coated soft copper rings, 100% non-damaging when applied and removed correctly and specifically designed for the safe application of professional hair extensions. Very secure hold and great for medium-thick and dry hair.
