This guide provides basic information about numerous types of hair integration and enhancement capabilities presently in the beauty industry. Stylez will endeavor to update the guide as the industry develops and new products and skills are introduced. It is conceptualized and designed as work in progress and will evolve with the passage of time.
Remy Hair and Virgin Hair
A significant measure of misunderstanding and outright misinformation on the unadulterated meaning of remy and virgin hairs has elicited this exposition. At Stylez we are determined to engender honesty and transparency in our efforts to strengthen the relationship between ourselves and our customers and visitors. We believe that once we are all enlightened the incidence of conflicts will reduce to the barest minimum.
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.
Micro rings or micro loop hair extensions use small metal rings (usually aluminium) lined with silicone with the extension hair attached. They are fixed to small sections of natural hair and tightened using a special tool that clamps the loop around the natural hair.
Netting is a technique which involves braiding natural tresses under a thin, breathable net that serves as a flat surface onto which stylists can weave extensions. This method requires the use of hair net or cap to be placed over the person’s hair that has been braided.
The most recent development in weave extensions are lace fronts. Lace fronts are made from a nylon mesh material formed into a cap that is then hand-ventilated by knotting single strands of hair into the tiny openings of the cap, giving the hair a more natural and authentic continuity than typical extensions.
