Brazilian Knots

Strands Of Extension Hair Added With Thread

Extension hair is woven into your natural hair a few strands at a time and secured with thread.  The thread used to create the hair extension attachment has a very thin, elasticised strip running though the centre which does not come into contact with the natural hair.  Strand-by-strand extensions allow for greater versatility in styling and last for up to 5 and a half months.  This hair extension application technique was designed to be safe for long term wear and easy to maintain.   The cotton provides an ultra strong, flexible barrier, preventing damage to your hair. This creates a ‘bind’ – stronger than even GLUE!
