Scanning the internet leads you to believe that there are "many methods" of hair extensions! It can be so confusing. NBR, WFB, IBE, SKW, YVR, Beaded Rows, No Show Row, 15 Minute Row, Fusion Keratin Extensions, Tape Hair Extensions, Cold Fusion, I-tip, U-tip, Micro Link, Nano, and so on.
How can you choose the best method of hair extensions? It can be exhausting and a huge time waster!
It's true there are 8 methods of hair extensions and a few out there that never seemed to stick (Brazilian Knotting would be one of them). Finding your dream stylist will take some work. I suggest spending more time searching for the right salon/stylist than worrying about which method you think best suits your hair type. Leave that up to the professionals!
What to consider? I refer to this as the three E's.
Education, experience, and energy! Obviously, the more experienced the stylist the better off you'll be. Ask key questions such as how long they've been offering hair extensions and what methods they are certified in? Ask for photos and check out their social media pages. As for energy, we all know that positive energy attracts positive vibes. The last thing you need is a stylist that makes you feel as if you're an inconvenience.
A qualified hair extension professional can offer the correct method and application-based facts such as lifestyle, texture, and color of your hair and budget. Choosing the wrong extension professional can lead to damaged hair, wasted time, a hit to your wallet, and a chip on your shoulder about the hair extension industry.
