Different kinds of hair extension

First is hair weft, also known as hair weave. We have hand tied hair extension and machine made hair extension. The hand-tied hair weft is much thin and natural than machine made hair extension. The machine made hair extension is much more popular because of it’s convenient to wear and better price.


Second is pre-bonded hair extension. We have keratin hair extension and micro loop hair extension. The micro loop hair extension is made of I tip hair extension, plus the micro ring. You can do the micro loop hair extension at home without any help. Micro ring extensions are safe for natural hair and feature tiny loops that are lightweight, flexible and virtually undetectable. They are simple enough to be applied at home, ideal for all hair types, and last for months. The keratin hair extension needs some keratin. The best keratin is Italian keratin; it’s much stronger and can last much longer time.

Third is clip in hair extensions, it is made by hair weft, cut the hair weft into many pieces and sew some clips, and then it becomes clip in hair extension. It’s much more convenient than hair weft; you can do it yourself at home.

Forth is tape hair extension. Using a double-sided tape, you can apply these extensions with minimal damage to your hair. When applying regular tape extensions, attach the tape to the mounting base. You can either cut the tape to the size of the extension or leave tabs of tape and attach the weft to your hair in the same manner as a pre taped extension. Creating these tabs and folding them over the underside of the section of hair will result in a longer-lasting extension.

What is the source of the hair of our hair extensions?

Where is the hair coming from? This is one of our top favorite questions about the origins of our hair extensions. Or perhaps they are questioning our collection methods of the Chinese hair.By now, most people are educated about the origins of Indian hair and the temple customs of a people that sacrifice their beauty.



In China, there are hair collectors go to the poor rural areas, such as the southern west part to collect hair, in these areas, the people are keeping long hair and then cut the hair and sell their own hair to these collectors, since these areas are less influenced by the fashion, and they do not dye their hair or curing it. So the hair will be in its original station. The hair quality is very good.

In western countries, hair collecting is actually much more common. Local beauty salons post a sign offering money for hair, which is freshly cut from a woman who is willing to trade for about a month’s income, and when the salon has collected a few ponytails they call a known contact that then comes out and buys the lot. They in turn sell to an exporter and these ponytails make their way to hair importers or hair extension suppliers.

It is true that we occasionally get an “old” ponytail. Meaning the hair is dry and musty and usually ends up tossed in the garbage. This means that someone’s grandmother cut their hair, wrapped it up in ribbons and a satchel and saved it in a drawer for a couple decades. In tough times with people offering to buy hair, this must seem like a great time to sell grandmother’s hair.

In the US, it has become common to donate one’s hair, in excess of a foot of healthy growth, to several non-profit organizations that provide wigs for cancer patients. So the practice of donating, either for cash or charity, is not as described as some imagine.
And after these hair collected, it will come to the hair processing stage. And after hair process it will be used to make all kinds of extensions hair.

How to put in clip-in hair extensions?

Women spend a lot of time and effort on their hair. A lot of women covet long, lush hair, and according to “Hairfinder,” research also shows men consider women with long hair more attractive than women with shorter hair (see References 1). For women who yearn for long hair or just want to add some volume, clip in extensions are a perfect solution. You may find putting in clip-in extensions a bit tricky at first, but with practice, you start to feel more comfortable and, thus, shorten the time required to put them in. Learn how to put in clip in hair extensions and achieve a beautiful, natural look by following a few easy steps:

How to put in clip-in hair extensions 1

How to put in clip-in hair extensions 1

1. Lay out all of the hair extension wefts. Wefts are the separate pieces of hair extensions and there should be different wefts of varying sizes, each with a set of push open and close clips on the top. Flatly laying out the wefts before starting helps you recognize the different sizes and stay more organized when clipping them into your hair.

2. Hold all of your hair back as though you were putting it into a low ponytail and pull out a small section of hair from the very bottom. This section should span from one side of your head to the other, and it should be about 1/2-inch thick.

3. Twist the remaining hair and secure it onto the top of your head with a clip.

4.Take the first weft—this should be one of the smaller wefts with only one or two clips, which fits the back of your head across the part of hair—and clip it into place. Slide each clip down the hair so the top of each clip rests against the part showing between the bottom layer of hair and the sectioned hair on top of your head. Snap the clips close and they should fit snugly into the hair.

5. Pull down a bit more hair, just enough to barely cover the first weft underneath.

6. Clip the second weft into place. Find the weft that best fits this section of hair, without going further than your ears. Clipping in a weft that is too long leaves gaps in between the clips and creates unnatural bumps in your finished style.

7. Continue on in this pattern, alternating between sections of hair and the wefts, until you reach the top of your head. You may find it easier to let all your hair loose for the very last extensions and fit them into place with your fingers so you can ensure there is an adequate amount of hair left over top to cover the tops of the wefts.

8. Feel around on your head and use a mirror to see the back of your head to ensure all of the extensions are properly in place and not showing through (see References 2).

9. Style your hair as desired.

How to become a wig supplier?

Wig making is a large industry, which may come as a surprise to some. Most wig companies produce thousands of wigs, beards, and other hair-related items for their customers. If you want to become a wig maker, you don’t need anything more than high school education, though you should be prepared to take additional beautician’s courses or to begin in an entry-level job where you will be trained how to use the equipment. Prospective wig makers need confidence and concentration to meet their daily quota. They also need to be flexible as working conditions in a wig making factory can change very quickly.

If you want to become a wig maker, you probably already know that the job is often misunderstood even though it is an important part of a number of industries. A wig maker generally makes wigs and beards in an industrial work environment and, at most companies, may be asked to make more than 100 wigs in a day. In general, wigs are made by using a machine to thread artificial, or sometimes real, hair through needles.



Although you don’t need post-secondary education to become a wig maker, it is a good idea to take beautician courses ,or something similar, at a technical school or community college. Avoid spending money on short online courses as they provide little in the way of useful training. Most companies do offer on-the job training, which often consists of three months or more of learning how to use the wig-making machinery. The companies generally pay minimum wage to begin with, though there may be some kind of pay ladder which you can move up as you gain more experience.

To become a wig maker, you need to be extremely confident in your ability as you will be creating dozens, if not hundreds, of wigs a day without much supervision once you become more experienced. It is also vital for you to have a high level of concentration. When you are dealing with powerful machinery, losing concentration can not only cause you to damage the wig you are making, it also increases your chances of sustaining a serious injury from the machines.

If you want to become a wig maker, you must also be flexible and creative. These are important skills because companies routinely change wig and beard designs. The pressure is then on the employee to quickly learn and perfect the new design without delay. You must also have patience in order to become a wig maker as moving up a company’s ranks takes years of hard work and persistence.


What is wig glue?

Wig glue is a type of adhesive used for synthetic or human hair attachments. Glue is generally used for larger hair wigs that need additional support before being placed onto the head. This type of adhesive is also preferable for men and women who cannot use other attachment methods, such as tape and bobby pins. There are a variety of different kinds of wig glues for consumers to choose from with varying strengths. When placing the glue directly on the scalp, users might consider other complementing products such as an adhesive removal and a scalp protector.

Hairpieces are used by men and women to either cover baldness or to change their looks. Full-headed wigs can be placed directly onto the head, while others are attached to a lace cap in order to protect the scalp. Hair extensions are an option that continues to increase in popularity in those individuals who have short locks but do not wish to have long strands on a daily basis. Smaller hair pieces, such as pony tails, are convenient ways to change a person’s appearance in a hurry.

Although wigs and other hairpieces are relatively easy to place on the head, users need to make sure that they will stay put. Adhesive options range from tapes to glues, with the latter generally being the most reliable option. Wig glue is either placed directly onto a person’s hairline where the hairpiece will be placed, or onto the cap. A glue remover is often necessary in order to remove the adhesive from the head, so some consumers find it easier to place the liquid adhesive onto a cap instead.

Placing wig glue onto the desired area should be done with care so that users do not waste any of it. Generally, a small amount is sufficient enough to keep the wig in place. Shoppers might consider looking for wig glue that comes with a brush for an easier and more precise application. Such products look similar to that of nail polish, and are sold in wig shops as well as beauty supply stores.

There are a variety of different types of wig glues from which shoppers can choose depending on the material of the hair attachments that they have, as well as their desired results. Some glue is specifically designed for synthetic wigs, while others are more appropriate for human hair versions. Glue comes in varying strength levels, but most kinds take up to 15 minutes until they are completely dry. Purchasing wig glue remover will make clean-up of stray glue or complete removal an easier process as well.

What are hair extensions?

Hair extensions, also called hair weaves, are lengths of real or synthetic hair that are closely attached to a person’s scalp, adding length and/or thickness to the person’s own natural hair. There are several different systems for attaching hair extensions, some of which are longer lasting than others. When well matched in color and texture, and professionally applied by a competent stylist, hair extensions are designed to mix in and move naturally with a person’s own hair, making it difficult to tell the person is wearing them. They can provide volume, extend hair, and add highlights or lowlights. With the proper maintenance, some extensions can last up to a full year before they need to be removed.

Types of Extensions
Both human and synthetic hair extensions are available, and both come in a variety of colors, textures, styles, and lengths. Each type has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Natural or human hair extensions are usually significantly more expensive than their synthetic counterparts, though they are typically considered to be of higher quality. Synthetic hair is made from chemically processed fibers; although more affordable, it may not look as real and can be more difficult to style.

Human Hair
High quality, long-lasting human hair extensions are often available only through salons. The hair can be washed, conditioned, dried, and colored just like a person’s own hair. It also tends to provide a great deal of styling freedom; heat styling at temperatures reaching 430°F (about 221°C) should not damage the hair. This typically results in faster and longer-lasting styles with more shine.

Synthetic Hair
Made from various types of synthetic fibers, these hair extensions are often available in a wider variety of beauty supply stores, drug stores, and other locations. The quality of synthetic hair can vary widely, but the two most common types are made of Kanekalon® and Toyokalon® fibers. Of the two, Kanekalon® is the most resistant to heat, and can be styled with curling irons and straighteners at up to 230°F (110°C) without melting or other damage. Toyokalon®, although less heat-resistant, usually tangles less and may last longer.

Application Techniques
Hair extensions can be attached in a number of different ways, depending on the type of hair, the amount being added, the budget of the consumer, and his or her lifestyle. When significant amounts of hair are to be attached, or the hair is expected to last for a long time, a professional stylist typically should be consulted.

Hair Extension Knowledge from UNIWIGS

Googling hair extensions and feeling a wee bit overwhelmed with all the info, or lack there of? So sick of reading gimmicky, confusing info? Let me help you with some insider terms. First, fusion. You hear this alot. It means typically a strand is fused to hair by a solvent or compression. It what’s mainly around the KC area. Fusion method requires a VERY heated tool to attach a bond to your hair and either an acetone or oil solvent to remove it. Compression is my fave. It just compress the hair to your natural hair.   Remy, another term you hear ALL the time. Quite over used if you ask me. It just means the hair still has its cuticle intact. A hair shaft in good condition has a cuticle( outer layer like a Christmas tree) that is tight and close together , cortex (middle layer) and medulla( inner core of hair shaft). If someone over colors or  his heavy handed with flat or curling irons( we see it all the time) more than likely the cuticle has been damaged.  Remy basically means un -damaged  ,  virgin hair.  Remy is soo not a big deal anymore. If a hair extension company even has to say its “remy”  it screams unprofessional to me.  I mean if your getting professionl extensions then shouldn’t remy hair be a given?  Then of course there is the origin. Which part of the world it comes from. Very important.  See my other posts about this.

So here’s what we use and why.
The Hairloc brand of extensions hair specialize in adding length, volume, color ,thickness and helping clients regain hair density lost due to illness and medical treatments. Most extension companies use Indian hair and we have found that this simply does not blend well with most western hair textures  It is the only professional company to offer 100% European (Italian or Russian) full cuticle hair extensions with no heat, glue, or other solvents.  If you know me and the salon then you know we believe that the cleanest and purest way to achieve a desired look is always the best. That is why we use Hairlocs. Its quite simple. We only use 2 things for extensions. The loc and the hairstrand. The loc is tiny tube made from copper. Copper is a naturally occuring metal in our body, so a full set of Hairlocs can actually promote increased hair growth. Copper has also been proven to help with inflammation.We thread this copper “loc” through a strand of your hair and then insert the extension and compress with a special tool. Since the hair is enclosed in this weightless little loc, there is less tension. Other knock-off brands use an aluminum bead which can corrode and mildew your hair. This blows my mind. I wont even use deoderant with aluminum , let alone attach it my hair!? Plus our type of extension is re- usable for 12-18 months. So over the long run most economical. Other systems are un-usable after a few months. To me that is just plain wasteful.

Some salons offer this “technique” but if a stylist doesn’t unroll the hair in front of you and its wrapped in tissue that has the HairLoc logo, its not HairLocs.  I’ve heard of stylists who are certified with professional companies, like Hairlocs , but then use hair from other, less reputable suppliers. So the client thinks they’re getting this hair, but aren’t. They dont exactly lie, perhaps.. but they aren’t exactly telling you its not HairLocs.   How freakin shady is that?? This company is the highest end not only for the theory, but for the quality of the hair as well. They were the first to do this method and the first to offer European hair. Other “budget” online sites wont stand behind the hair quality.

Beware of these salons, they’re all about profit.
So my advice to anyone thinking of getting extensions, do some research. You will find the right system for your hair and your budget.  And be realistic.  All extensions require maintence and vigilant at home care. If you slack on home hair care in between visits. It shows, literally. The last few weeks have been hectic  and I didnt use the right products or brush my hair as often as I should have and hellooo Chewbacca! My hair  looked dry and dull.   A little TLC revived it, but it taught me a valuable lesson. Treat your hair crappy , it will look like crappy . Treat it with luv, and it will luv you back.

A variety of textures is available in synthetic extensions. Yaki is a common texture that resembles the Afro-Caribbean hairstyle. In case of European texture the hair is straight with minimal waves in it. The deep waves look like the spiral curls. The deep wave or the romantic wave lends softer, romantic curls. For an out-and-out afro look you can sport the Jheri curl. In case you want to sport the Spanish wave or Indian wave, it is better to go for human hair instead of synthetic hair extensions.
