Types of Hair Extensions

The Short-List of the 7-10 Methods of Hair Extensions

There are several types of hair extensions available in the market, each with its own unique features and benefits. Some of the most common types of 'more temporary' hair extensions include:

  • Clip-in hair extensions: These are the most popular and affordable type of hair extensions. They are easy to install and can be removed without damaging the natural hair. Clip-in hair extensions come in different sizes and lengths and can be styled just like natural hair.
  • Tape-in hair extensions: These are thin and flat hair extensions that are attached to the natural hair using double-sided tape. Tape-in extensions are popular among people with thin hair as they create a more natural look.
  • Sew-in hair extensions: These are also known as weaves, and involve braiding the natural hair and sewing the extensions onto the braids. Sew-in extensions are popular among people with thick hair as they provide more volume and length.

We also find a few to choose from which will give longer, more permanent hair extension wear...

  • Fusion hair extensions: These are bonded to the natural hair using a keratin-based adhesive. Fusion extensions are more permanent than clip-in or tape-in extensions and can last for up to six months.
  • Micro link hair extensions: Also known as microbead extensions, these involve attaching small sections of hair to the natural hair using tiny metal beads. Micro link extensions are popular among people with fine hair as they are lightweight and provide a more natural look.
  • Halo hair extensions: These are a newer type of hair extension that involves attaching a wire or string to a halo-shaped weft of hair. The halo sits on top of the head, with the natural hair covering the wire or string. Halo extensions are easy to install and remove, making them a great option for temporary use.

It's important to note that each type of hair extension has its own advantages and disadvantages, and it's essential to choose one that best suits your needs and lifestyle.

Hi, I Am Tiffany Twist

Creator of Soft Bond Strands®; Founder, Just Clean Hair™; Owner, WEST COAST HAIR®

Over 10 years ago, I created a hair extension product and method I worked tirelessly to perfect. I brought it to the online world as a DIY hair extension system and years later began to serve clients. We accumulated a client list in both Minnesota and California, eventually opening storefronts in Minneapolis' Uptown and then in Beverly Hills. I've since created a beloved hair care line for clients, customers, friends and family.

Most recently, I’ve perfected my system and built an Academy to teach others to do what I’ve done: Create a viable, successful 6-figure business working part-time hours from home through an online Academy filled with learning courses.
