Dallas hair extensions

Micro link hair extensions in Dallas are a method of adding length or volume to your own hair.  This type of hair extension gives very similar results as a hot fusion method, except there is no heat or glue used in the application.  Here is a simplified look at i-tip micro link hair extensions in Dallas.

What are I-tip or Micro link Hair Extensions?

This is another way of saying cold fusion.  These hair extensions are applied using a metal cylinder that integrates a small section of your hair, and adds the hair extensions inside the tube.  When the link/tube/cylinder is clamped closed the extensions remain adhered for 2-4 months.   After 2-4 months of wearing, the cylinders are re-opened and the extensions are moved up and re-clamped closed.  After that wearing period, the hair extensions are replaced with new hair.

Are they safe?

These hair extensions are ideal for someone with normal-medium hair type.   The silicone lining of each link protects your hair from the metal link.

How much do they cost?

For a professional opinion as to whether these are the best option for your natural hair, a free hair extensions consultation is suggested.  In this  appointment we can discuss what you are looking for and I will offer solutions that I recommend to you.  It is truly a no-pressure appointment that I require all new hair extensions to have so as to choose the best method for your hair, lifestyle, and budget.

Cold fusion hair extensions

Cold fusion hair extensions in Dallas are somewhat new, and many people don’t know about the technology.  This is a simple look into cold fusion hair extensions so you can get a better understanding when looking into fuller or thicker hair in Dallas.


What is fusion?

The process of using adhesives to attach hair extensions to your own hair.  Cold fusions are different than hot fusion because they do not use heat to adhere the hair extensions to your natural hair.  The two methods of cold fusion include:


Ultrasonic Waves –  Rapid ultrasonic waves soften (melt) the adhesive, instead of heat.  While the bond is softened, it is then wrapped around small sections of your own natural hair.


Links / Cylinders / Locs – These very small metal links are lined with silicone to protect your natural hair.  A small amount of your own hair is pulled through the cylinders, and the extensions are added.  Once clamped close, these cylinder links keep the hair extensions attached to your natural hair for up to 3 months with no adhesive.


Are they damaging?


Cold Fusion hair extensions are relatively new hair extension technology, with a lot of buzz about being non-damaging.  As a hair extensions specialist, I have a couple of issues with these damage-free claims:


  1.  Weight of cylinder/links/locs – If the cylinders are used, they are an additional weight on your natural strands, on top of the weight of each hair extension.


  1. No heat = No damage – I’m not buying it.  This is something that sounds fancy, but as a hair extension specialist I know the specifics of what it takes to apply hot fusion: 320 degrees of heat, and about 3 seconds per section of hair.  320 degrees of heat is less than that produced by your hair dryer, curling iron, and flat iron.  So, is the heat a factor of damage with hair extensions?  In my honest opinion, no.  Not unless you have very fragile, damaged hair.  In that case, I wouldn’t even recommend fusion hair extensions.




To sum it up, I don’t recommend cold fusion hair extensions to my clients.  If someone’s hair isn’t capable of withstanding the heat, or removal of hot fusion strands then you probably aren’t a candidate for the extra weight of the links/tubes.  Also, you will still have to withstand the tedious removal of a cold fusion should you opt for a ultrasonic method.  I would recommend tape extensions for someone whose hair requires extra attention to potential damage.


Hot fusion hair extensions in Dallas are very common, yet can be very confusing to someone new to hair extensions.  Here is a simple look into fusion hair extensions so you can get a better understanding when looking into Dallas hair extensions.


What is fusion?


The process of using adhesives to attach hair extensions to your own hair.  Hot fusion means heat is used to fuse (or attach) hair to your own hair strands.  Heat is used to soften (or melt) some sort adhesive that will then harden when it cools back down.  While the adhesive is soft, it is wrapped around a section of your hair so when it hardens it remains attached.


How it works


Fusion hair extensions are individually wrapped around small sections of your own hair for a very natural look.  They usually remain attached for 3-5 months, and then they need to be removed and either re-applied or a new set installed.  During those 3-5 months, you will visit the salon for regular maintenance appointments where they are individually inspected for shedding and separated to prevent tangling.  With regular maintenance visits, the possibility of damage is minimized.


Are they damaging?


Fusion hair extensions have been wildly popular for around 20 years, so there are strong opinions on both sides of the answer to this question.  In my professional opinion, fusion hair extensions are not damaging when these 3 basic rules are followed:


  1.  They are properly applied by a trained professional who recommends them for your hair type.
  2. They are maintained in the salon every 4-6 weeks for a Tidy Cut.
  3. They are removed by a trained professional with proper tools and solutions.


Who should wear fusion hair extensions?


The ideal client for fusion hair extensions has moderately thin to normal natural hair, not thick.  They have an active lifestyle that requires frequent ponytails, and/or minimal visibility.


How long does it take?


Fusion hair extensions in Dallas usually take 1.5 – 3.5 hours depending on the amount of hair extensions that are applied.  Removal generally takes 1 – 1.5 hour(s).


How much do they cost?


Fusion hair extensions have a very wide range of pricing.  Much of this depends on the length of hair you need, and how many extensions your end result requires.  For a better idea of how much Fusion hair extensions in Dallas cost, refer to my salon services and price menu.

Seamless skin weft hair extensions in Dallas are becoming very popular for clients looking for fuller thicker hair or extra length hair extensions without damage.  Here is a simple look at Dallas seamless skin weft hair extensions:


What is a seamless skin weft?


Seamless skin weft is a type of base for hair extensions that is very thin and flat, and matches the hair color on the extension for a seamless blend.   This attachment base is made out of a polyurethane so as to keep the hair extensions in-tact and give a sturdy attachment for adding tape.  Sometimes a seamless skin weft is also used in micro-link hair extensions.


Seamless skin weft hair extensions are very flat and comfortable when worn.  They lay very flat against the head and don’t create any points of pressure when felt, or when you lay your head down.


How Much do they Cost?

Curious about tape hair extensions in Dallas?  Here is a simple look into tape hair extensions, how they work, and how they stay in your hair.


How do Tape Hair Extensions work?

Tape hair extensions usually have a very flat base, also known as a seamless skin weft.  This attachment base is made out of a polyurethane so as to keep the hair extensions in-tact and allow the tape to stay adhered.  The tape is usually a medical grade, hypoallergenic tape.  Two panels of these wefts are sandwiched together with a very thin slice of your hair in between the tape.  This means the tape is taped to tape, and your hair is just holding it in place.  No tape, or glue is exposed to your natural hair or scalp


After 4-6 weeks of wearing, the extensions are very easily removed in the salon.  While your hair color is processing we replace the tape, and re-apply the same extensions for another 6-8 weeks of wearing.


Will they Damage Your Hair?

Absolutely not.  Tape hair extensions are a great option for all hair types, especially someone with fine or thin natural hair.   Seamless tape hair extensions are also incredibly flat, and comfortable wearing.


How long does it take?

Application is very quick: 30 minutes to 2 hours.  Removal: 15 to 45 minutes. Reapplications usually last 1hour-2 hours.  (Not including color) 


How much do they cost?

Request a complimentary consultation with one of our stylists to get a fully accurate price based on your current length and your hair goals.

If you have done your research on hair extensions, you will see many terms that describe the hair such as virgin, remy, cuticle.  Here, we will dive into virgin hair extensions and take a simplified look into what virgin hair really is, and why it’s so important to hair extension quality.


What is Virgin hair?

In the salon, if someone says your hair is “virgin” that simply means it hasn’t been touched by any sort of checmical.  Virgin hair extensions generally refers to hair that has zero processing – chemical, or hair color.   If this is true, the hair is the exact same color as it was when someone donated it.  Once hair color, or any chemical straightening has touched virgin hair extensions, the hair is no longer virgin hair.


As can be imagined, virgin hair extensions are very rare, which equates to low supply and high cost.  Virgin hair is the best quality hair extensions you can buy yet they are also the most expensive.


Do you need Virgin hair extensions?

While virgin hair extensions are rare, and of the highest quality, there comes a point where you have to ask: how good of quality do I need? In other words: Is there much of a difference between an Infinity, and a Lexus car?  Also, you have to consider the legitimacy of what hair extension companies claim they offer.  Since virgin hair extensions haven’t been colored, do you really believe there is a huge source of 22″ long blonde hair extensions that they got from a blonde ponytail?   If a company promises 100% of their hair is virgin, and they offer multiple colors of hair extensions, we tend to not believe these claims.  Anything is possible, but this is highly unlikely.


All in all, Virgin hair extensions seem to be something brands have thrown out there as a marketing gimmick.  Virgin hair extensions do offer amazing quality, but this quality can only be found by very very few vendors, and only in the darkest of hair colors.


We only work with brands that guarantee the quality of hair.  What this means is, while the hair may not be truly virgin, they stand behind the quality of hair with a warranty.  The hair comes pre-colored, and we can match it to your own color.

This is a simplified look at hair extensions for medium to thick hair in Dallas.  For someone with medium to coarse hair you will need hair extension options that match your hair density and fullness so as to keep a natural look when you add length or volume with your Dallas hair extensions.  If your natural hair type is fine or thin, refer to my Dallas hair extensions guide for tips.  Here is more information on the best hair extensions in Dallas for someone with medium to coarse hair.


Which hair extensions are best for someone with medium or thick hair?


Having medium to thick hair opens the door to most hair extension systems since these hair types tend to have more strength, and give greater coverage to hide the attachment.  The most common hair extension systems in Dallas for medium to coarse hair are:


Balmain Doublehair

Seamless Skin Weft Tape



The reason these are the most popular is because each weft has more hair per on them, making blending and matching your natural texture much easier.  Fusion systems are not generally recommended because the number of strands required to match your natural density would be overwhelming

Fine thin hair extensions in Dallas are something most of our clients are looking for.  Adding volume or length to your own hair is easily done with the best hair extensions.  As hair extensions specialists, we work with several brands and types of extensions for fine and thin hair in Dallas.  Here is a simple look at the best hair extensions for fine or thin hair in Dallas.


Best hair extensions for Fine or Thin hair


The most important thing to consider if your natural hair is fine or thin is the strength of the hair extension attachment.  The last thing you want to do is add hair extensions that look great for 2-4 months, then remove them to find you have done damage to your own natural hair.  We recommend tape hair extensions for clients with fine or thin hair.  Seamless tape hair extensions are durable enough for 6-8 weeks of reusable wear, but they are easily removed which results in the least amount of damage to your own hair.


There are many brands who offer tape hair extensions, and we work with several of them.  Each brand has a different weight per hair extension piece, and different type of tape used for the attachment.  Depending on your hair type, we will make our recommendation based on which would best suit your hair without causing damage.


In some instances, we recommend fusion hair extensions that are able to be customized with small bonds like Balmain fusion strands or Hairdreams fusion strands.  Other methods with links, or heavy wefts are not recommended for someone with a fine natural hair strand.

Dallas hair extensions

If you are interested in cuticle hair extension in Dallas, this is a simplified explanation for you.  Cuticle hair extensions are another way to explain remy hair extensions in Dallas.  Check out my guide for a more in depth look into what remy hair extensions are.  Here is a look at what cuticle hair extensions really means.

What is cuticle hair?

Cuticle hair extensions is, in general, another term for virgin remy hair extensions in Dallas.  The cuticle is completely in-tact and this results in higher quality hair strands.

What is non-cuticle hair?

This is another term for chemically treated non-remy hair.  Non-remy hair extensions have been chemically processed to melt the cuticles that are in opposite directions.  So, there are no more cuticles on these hair extensions because of this chemical processing.  Silicone sealers and fillers are used to add a smooth finish and shine to the hair, but this is not a permenant sealer.  In time, with shampooing and heat styling, this “sealer” wears off and the unnatural roughness and dry texture of the chemically processed hair will be exposed.  The result is increased dryness, tangling and matting.
