Services - Extension Methods
Vegas Best Extensions uses 5 methods of hair extensions: Beads, Polymer Bonding, Tape, Shrink Links, and Volume+. Here is a description of each method.
Beads (mini color coated cylinders), extensions hair is bonded into individual I-tip shape and linked to your hair with the bead which can be silicon lined in order to reduce the friction with your hair when clamped (thus safer) and also it results in a better grip. Several manufacturers use this method, like:
Eurolocs, Microlinks, Hairlocs, and others; the hair is premium quality human hair.
This method is probably the safest on the hair since there is no bonding involved, and the extensions can be reused multiple times; maintenance is needed between 6-8 weeks; Maintenance is simple and safe, we simply open the beads with a special tool, detangle, remove the naturally shed hair, move up the extension strand and close (or replace) the bead again.
Remember to avoid using serum or heavy conditioners on the scalp while you are wearing these extensions, which will cause slippage. By using individual strands, you can get the most natural flowing, looking and blending hair; furthermore, beads are made in different sizes, so we can use smaller one on front hairline and the top layer, making them less visible and noticeable. This method is ideal for fine hair, damaged hair, or short hair because we can apply for the hair extensions on hair as short as one inch.
Polymer bonding method, this is another individual I-tip method, unlike the Keratin bonding (which contains some glue in it), this bonding consists of Polymer Crystals that can be easily and safely removed with its special solvent. Hair Dreams is the only manufacturer for this type of bonding, and they carry two grades of hair extensions:
5 stars: Premium quality human hair, it is gently pre-lightened and toned in order to achieve the desired color. Recommended usage for 4-6 months.
7 stars: Superb quality human hair, European sources, never lightened, only toned 1 shade if needed.it requires maintenance every 4-6 months, to be used up to 1 1/2 years with re-bonding; Extensions are guaranteed if recommended products are used and proper maintenance is done by certified stylists.
Tape Method, two self-adhesive panels of extensions pressed together sealing a thin section of your hair in between; this is a cold Fusion and not heat-activated as used to be, they can be easily removed by its special solvent; we use Babe Extensions system for this method. This method is fast and more affordable; tape extensions lay flat, you will hardly feel them.
Avoid washing the hair for TWO days after application. Maintenance is needed every 6-8 weeks, and the hair can be reused 2 additional times.
There are many essential factors are considered before working on your hair such as: your natural hair flow (hair stream) to prevent any discomfort and damage, your natural hair color, texture, and your skin tone in order to create a natural looking hair, the way it moves, style, feel, and blend.
Invisible clear plastic tubes attach the tipped extensions to your hair, very light and clean feeling.
The Shrink Link tubes are lined with Keratin bond, which can be activated by using a thermal tool, and they bond once they cool off. Similarly, take down is easy by applying heat to the tubes, followed by removing any residue using a special solvent.
Shrink Links are more secure than beads, and they don’t slip; however, beads are installed and removed faster.
