Different Types and Styles of Clip in Hair Extensions Sheffield – Techniques and Effects

There are several different kinds and styles of hair extensions, each with a length and effect designed to fit an occasion. Long ornate hair extensions for example are ideal for bridal hair and special occasions.

A modern hair extension “look” can be created in a single appointment, using every minute techniques and technology. The majority of hair extension appointments should be expected to take at least a couple of hours and for extensions looking to create a specific hairstyle effect, the customer should expect between four and six hours of attendance at the hairdresser’s chair.

The basic idea of modern clip in hair extensions Sheffield is to make the customer’s hair look drastically different from normal, but also to look natural. This is the reason why a large number of appointments take a reasonable amount of time to complete. The hair extension material is normally made of natural human hair to give the natural look, which may or may not be treated to appear in a certain way or to respond to hair styling preparations such as mousse and spray.

Clip in Hair extensions Sheffield have differing degrees of permanence. Clip on (or clip in) hair extensions are the least permanent and therefore the quickest to do. A simple clip in extension can even be done at home by the wearer, which can be removed every night before sleeping. The clip in hair extension is clipped to the existing hair near the root, which is sectioned and the clip is affixed to each section.
A bonded hair extension effectively glues the hair to the existing hair. Bonded hair extensions take longer than clip-ins to complete, and are semi permanent. The hair stays glued in for as long as four or six weeks, at which point the customer must return to the hairdressers for a maintenance appointment.

Sewn in hair extensions also known as a weave, are done with lace or net caps, which are inserted into the existing hair; the extensions may be sewn onto them. By sewing natural human hair onto a net or lace in this way, the hairdresser can closely mimic the natural length and direction of growth in “real” hair. Thus, deliver a completely different look for the customer without the tell-tale clumping or odd directions of a transplant or a wig.

Normally hair extensions are conducted using premium hair. This is real human hair that lasts a reasonably long time but often tangles due to the cuticles catching on each other. Premium hair is also available which are chemically treated and doesn’t tangle easily.

Artificial hair may also be used. While natural looking and easy to work with, artificial hair doesn’t last as long. The reason behind this is it is adversely affected by friction and general wear and tear. Artificial hair has no cuticle protecting it from fraying, as it rubs against other strands of hair.

Hair extensions can be done quickly or slowly depending on the end requirements and will give a completely natural looking cut.
