Meet Ramona. She has fine dark hair that is just below the shoulder-length. She gets micro-bead extensions in 24 inches to add tons of length and thickness. She is not a licensed hair dresser, and taught herself to do extensions. When she is not bartending, you can find her giving a gorgeous head of Doctored Locks linkies micro-beads extensions to a local stripper in 3 hours or less. Great little side-job if you ask me!
She taught a friend to do them so that she would have someone put hers in. She gets her extensions put in every 3 months or so. They look perfect on her, and she is very happy with them. After she gets them put in, she comes to me to blend them.
Sometimes people are hesitant to trim their new hair because they paid so much for it and they are so excited about it being so long. But trimming and blending is a must. This photo on the left is what happens if you don’t custom blend your new extensions.
A little trim around the edges and some light layering is all you need. Perfect layers ponytail cut does the trick every time.
Check out Ramona’s before and after. The difference is subtle, but the outcome is perfect.
And here is a little cautionary tid-bit……It is crucial to take care of your extensions. Pamper them and condition them. detangle and gently brush them. I advise against coloring them yourself. Talk to your stylist or check out the company website to get the right care tips for your particular extension type.
