Front Room Hair Extensions
The Front Room offers add length and/or fullness to human hair. Hair extensions are methods of lengthening one's hair by
incorporating additional human or synthetic hair. Natural human hair can be permed, dyed, and flat ironed whereas synthetic hair
cannot. The methods include tape in extensions, fusion method, weaving method and wigs.
Tape-in hair extensions last on hair from four to eight weeks and the hair can be gently combed
and washed while wearing the extensions. In addition, the extensions need to be treated with
specialized shampoos, conditioners and styling products to keep them in top condition.
The extensions can be easily taken off by applying glue remover and can be easily installed by
using liquid adhesive or glue tape.

Bonding is a method of weaving that lasts for a shorter period of time in comparison to sew-in
weaving. It involves the application of hair glue to a section of wefted hair then onto a person's
natural hair; special hair adhesives are used in bonding to prevent damage to one's natural hair.
This technique is commonly used and does not cause damage to the hair unless taken out
without proper directions from a professional. It is advised that weave bonding be installed for up
to 3 weeks because the glue begins to loosen up and lessens the attractiveness of the hair.
There are 2 types of bonding methods: soft bond and hard bond.
Soft bond is flexible and comfortable to wear and is made using latex/acrylic based adhesives.
Hard bond is the industry term for bonding treatments whose adhesive contains cyanoacrylate,
or super glue. Hard bond adhesives last longer than soft bond adhesives because it is not water
based and therefore less susceptible to deterioration. Nonetheless, the hard bond adhesives
are not as comfortable as the soft bond adhesive because they are rigid. These bond
attachments generally last 4–6 weeks before a maintenance appointment is necessary.
The fusion method delivers one of the most versatile and most natural-looking weaves on the
market. This involves a machine similar to a hot glue gun used to attach human hair extensions
to individual strands of one's natural hair of about 1/8 to 1/4 inch squared sections for a truly
authentic look. Another option for fusion attachments is using hair which is pre-tipped with a
keratin adhesive. A heat clamp is then used to melt the adhesive to attach the extension hair to
the natural hair.
Fusion weave allows washing hair frequently and the use of regular hair products such as hair
gels. Nonetheless this technique is very time consuming because it takes about 3 or more hours.
They need re-positioning every 2–3 months as the natural hair grows.
Micro Rings, Micro Loop or Micro-Bead hair extensions use small metal rings or beads (usually
aluminium) and can sometimes be lined with silicone to attach the extension hair. They are fixed
to small sections of natural hair and tightened using a special tool that clamps the bead around
the natural hair.
The micro-beads are designed to be small enough so that they are not visible in normal use.
They need re-positioning every 2–3 months as the natural hair grows and the micro-beads move
away from the scalp.
As they do not use heat or adhesives, these hair extensions should cause less damage than
some types of extensions, if placed correctly and proper care is taken. Today, there are many
sizes available for micro rings/beads from about 1.5mm to 5.5mm. The sizing makes a difference
on the weight of the extensions, the feel, and the visibility. Some micro-beads are so tiny, that
they mimic a non surgical hair transplant. The stylist installing the extensions should determine
what size micro rings/beads are best for the client's hair length and texture, prior to installation
on the head.
This is one of the most commonly used methods as it is quite fast and lasts considerably longer
than the other techniques. However, it does not allow for use of regular hair maintenance.
Tracking involves the braiding of a person's natural hair. In order to prevent the hair from being
bumpy or uneven, the hair is sewn horizontally or vertically across the head from one side to the
other starting from the bottom.
The braided hair is then sewn down and the hair weft extensions are sewn onto the braids. A
weave can consist of a few tracks, or the whole head can be braided for a full head weave. With
a full head weave, the braids are sewn down or covered with a net. Extensions are then sewn to
the braids. The number of tracks used depends on the desired look.
