Microbonds hair extensions are one of the most popular methods of attachment for hair extensions.
The difference between the standard keratin bonds and micro bonds is the size of keratin glue pellets and the quantity of hair per strand.
Standard bonds use 1 gram of hair per strand. So you can apply 100 grams of hair with 100 bonds.
Micro bonds are much smaller than the standard ones: only 0.5-0.7 grams of hair are applied with one bond.
Thus to apply a 100-gram bundle of hair, the hair stylist will use about 180-200 micro bonds.
Who are microbond hair extensions for?
For clients with fine, soft, or weakened hair.
They do not create an immense weight on hair or tension at your roots, so the clients have no reasons to worry about the health of the hair.
For clients with a short haircut
All other extension techniques are not suitable for one simple reason: they will be visible in a short hairstyle.
The size of the bonds makes them the most discreet hair extensions available.
For those who prefer natural hairstyles
It is possible to make hair extensions using micro bonds only, and the other option is to use them on bangs, to make them look as natural as possible. Or on the temples and other places where the hair is naturally thinner.
Despite all the advantages of these hair extensions, not every hair stylist can perform this method, because it requires a high level of technical skills. In general, the only difference from standard bond extensions is the size of the bonds. Let’s figure out how the keratin bonds are fitted, and what are the features of the process.
Buy the right tool and keratin
Every hair stylist needs pliers, which are used to form bonds. For micro bonds you need the pliers 2-3 mm wide.
As for keratin, the standard type is not suitable. Opt for gel keratin: it melts better and is easier to shape.
Think about the safety
The extension procedure involves some rather high temperatures. To protect your client’s hair and scalp, cover the scalp with special heat protector shields.
They come with scale marks to simplify the process of strands fixation.
Section off the hair
When working with micro bonds it is essential to divide the hair neatly. Otherwise, the extensions won’t be so comfortable, and the strands start to tangle.
Control the thickness of the strands
Only 0.5-0.7 grams of hair are taken per strand.
Make sure that the strands are of the same thickness, but not too thick.
The hair is fixed with keratin bonds. They are heated with a special tool – an iron for hair extensions.
Start application from the top of the head
The process of curl fixation begins at the top of the head, then gradually goes to the temples and the back of the head.
- Make sure the extensions are unnoticeable
You need to fix the locks so that they are covered with the client’s natural hair. The place of fixation will be invisible to others, and the hairstyle will look as natural as possible.
By the way, micro bond extensions allow customers to make high tails or smooth bundles – the size of micro bonds allows you to make any hairstyle you wish!
