Hair Extensions Miami

When you have long hair, you have more options for hairstyles. If you have fine hair or just keep it short most of the time, you might have been envious of people with long locks. You may have considered getting hair extensions but wondered if you would have the time to care for them and if they would look real.

Our full-service salon offers a relaxing atmosphere. Our stylists are amongst the best in the state of Florida. They will consult with you before they begin their work to pick out the perfect extensions for you.


What are the different kinds of hair extensions?

Hair extensions are simply synthetic or human hair that attaches to a person’s actual hair by what are called wefts. A weft is a collection of strands of hair that are sewn onto a very thin patch of cloth. Extensions make your hair longer and give you more options for style. Hairstylists use several different types of extensions.


Clip Extensions

Clip-in extensions are generally attached to the hair with silicone, although the clips may be made out of another type of fabric. People who do their hair often use these kinds of extensions. They are easy to use as you simply clip them right onto your hair.

Although they are easy to use and less expensive, it is always a good idea to have a professional put them in for you, if you want to look your best. It takes a trained eye to configure these clips perfectly.

Clip extensions are less damaging than other extensions because no chemicals are used, and they are easily removed. They are best for a hairstyle you want to have for a night out or special occasions.


Tape-in Hair Extensions

These kinds of extensions are attached to the root of the hair. They are attached on either side with tape or glue and the use of a heat tool. It would be extremely difficult for a person to put in this type of extension themselves. A trained extension specialist can attach them to your hair and make them look beautiful and natural.

You should be aware that these extensions will have to be removed by a professional using a heat gun as well. Hairstylists can ensure that a minimum amount of damage is done in the process.


Microlink Hair Extensions

Microlink extensions are put in by attaching small wefts of the extension hair to your hair with tiny silicone beads. An extension specialist will use a tool to tighten the weft to your hair.

Putting in microlink extensions is a highly intricate process that takes two to three hours. Not only do you need a professional to put them in, but they should be as talented as the stylists that you will find at our salon. These extensions can damage the hair if they are not installed and removed perfectly.


Weave or Sew in Hair Extensions

When a person gets a weave, the hair will first have to be braided in cornrows. The hair extension will then be sewn into the hair with a needle and thread. This is not recommended for thin or fine hair as the extensions can be rather heavy.

It takes several hours to do a weave, and it takes a skilled and steady hand to make a weave look natural. However, the results can be beautiful when the hair is matched perfectly. A weave is permanent and will grow naturally with your hair.


Natural Versus Synthetic Hair Extensions

Extensions can be made from both natural and synthetic hair. Each type of extension has advantages and disadvantages.


Human Hair Extensions

Human hair extensions are natural-looking and very soft to the touch. They move with your hair, and they will not wear it down.

Depending on the type of hair extension you get, wefts made of natural hair can last for years. You can style this kind of hair any way you want, and you can color it just like your own hair. The texture of the hair should be easy to match with your own. People with every different texture of hair sell their hair to extension makers.

You will not have as much tangling with regular hair as you will with hair extensions, as the cuticle will all go in the same direction.

Natural hair needs to be maintained just like your own hair. Any one of our trained professional hairstylists can help you maintain a beautiful-looking style while you have your extensions in and after you have them taken out.


Synthetic Hair Extensions

Synthetic hair extensions are a less expensive option than real hair. They are generally created from nylon. They are made in a factory and baked into a certain texture, such as curly or wavy.

The best thing about synthetic hair extensions is that they will retain their style. You can wash them many times and go out in every kind of weather, and they will not go flat.

You cannot change the style or color of synthetic extensions. If you try to use a curling iron on them, you will destroy them. They only last a few months, and they are not as natural-looking as real hair.


What kind of extension is right for you?

The perfect extensions for you will depend upon your hair, budget, and the style you want. You might also want to consider how long you are planning to wear them.

When you come in for your appointment, your stylist will go over each option with you. They will make recommendations and explain why they feel they are the best choice, but the ultimate decision will be yours.

Having beautiful hair can make you feel more confident. Hair extensions will give you more ways to express your fabulous style. Give us a call and make your appointment today.
