Introduction To Hair Extensions 

Hair extensions have long been a popular staple of hair care and getting qualified to do hair extensions can be a fantastic opportunity to earn money.  

There are many different kinds of hair extension, and people choose to use them for a variety of reasons. They are often a popular choice for weddings or holidays to give a volumising and lengthening effect.

Tape Hair Extensions 

Tape hair extensions are one of the latest and most popular forms of extensions. It is a simple and quick way to add volume and length to the hair by taping the extension to the natural hair.  

The ease of application, removal and reapplication is what makes this method so popular. Learning more about this type of hair extension can be a great way to build a loyal, repeat customer base.  

Micro Ring Hair Extensions 

Micro ring extensions are popular as they don’t require heat or glue to adhere to the hair, instead using tiny rings to connect the extension to the natural hair.  

This method can take time to apply, and if not done correctly, it can result in damage to the hair. This is why it is so essential to get the best possible training and accreditation to do the work well and give your clients extensions they will adore.  

Flat Track Weave 

A flat track weave is the process of attaching weft to the hair and is best suited for finer hair. The process works by weaving tiny beads into the hair that should sit flat against the head, hence the name.  

Like micro ring hair, this doesn’t involve glue or heat but careful sewing instead. It also requires a lot of skill to do correctly and avoid damaging the natural hair.
