Micro/Nano Bead Extensions
Our Micro Bead and Nano Bead extensions are top quality Remy hair and are attached to small sections of your own hair with a small silicone-lined bead. The bead is then tightened to hold it in place.
Micro Bead and Nano Bead extensions don’t require heat, glue or adhesive and can last for up to three months in the hair. Hair is reusable, and any extensions that may have slid down or off can be re-fixed again by one of our experienced stylists.
What the difference between Micro and Nano Bead Extensions? Nano Beads are 90% smaller than the traditional Microbead I Tip. They suit fine hair where a traditional Microbead cant be used
How long does it take to apply? Depending on hair thickness it will take from 4 – 5 hours
Does this price include a colour? No, we will try to match your colour or the extensions as close as possible but in some cases we will have to colour the extensions or your hair.
Does this price include a cut? Yes
Can they damage my hair? No, there is no to very little damage.
What is Remy hair? Remy hair is collected in such a way to ensure all strands remain aligned in the same direction to which it has grown. This eliminates tangling problems more commonly found in non-Remy hair. Because of this method of collection, this type of hair is in short supply and is priced accordingly.
