Hair extensions and hair weaves

Hair weaves vs strand-by-strand hair extensions

The main differences between the two are cost and length of time each hair extension style will ultimately last.  A hair  weave is easy on the pocket and will last you up to 8 weeks whereas the strand-by-strand hair extension methods such as microring hair extensions and the Brazilian knots hair extension service is more expensive initially but in the long run is a great investment for those who intend to wear extensions long term. Both types of  extensions allow you to wear you hair up in ponytails and neither are not vulnerable to heated styling tools and products.

When deciding on a hair weave or strand-by-strand hair extensions consider;

Volume & Length; The length of the extension hair affects the final price so think carefully about this because snipping off those extra inches means you have wasted valuable pounds.  All techniques can offer extra length and volume but a real hair weave is generally more suitable if you are starting from hair above shoulder length.

Colour; If you have highlighted or mutli-tonal colour a strand-by-strand hair extension service may be preferable as each individual hair extension strand can be custom blended, on the other hand a extension hair for a hair weave can be ordered with a colour blend with up to 3 colours.

Budget; Bottom line…hair weaves are cheap as chips whereas strand-by-strand hair extensions are a bit more expensive but last a lot longer let your purse do the talking on this one ladies!

Overall look; Hair weaves and strain-by-strand hair extensions both look very natural.

Versatility; Some women find strand-by-strand hair extensions are more versatile than a hair weave.

Safety; Most adhesive-free hair extensions application methods are very safe for your natural hair.  Choosing a microring hair extension application, Brazilian knots or a hair weave means your hair should be entirely safe in the hands of a professional.

Shannel says…

When I first decided to set up a hair extension business it was important to me that I offered the very best hair extension service possible. This ultimately left me with three choices…the microring hair  extensions, Brazilian knots and the hair weave service. There are many factors that make these hair extension techniques the best in the market.

1. Heat and chemical free application and removal
2. No need for pliers or tools that can cause mechanical damage to the hair
3. The extension attachments are based on thread rather than adhesives or  metal rings.
4. No professional monthly maintenance appointments necessary.
5. Safe and gentle on the natural hair!
