Natural Hair Extensions

Micro Rings and Micro Bonds are both permanent methods, but what’s the difference?

Whether you’re new to extensions or looking to switch up the method you use, it’s good to know what’s available to you. One of the main questions we get asked in the salon is what’s the difference between Micro Ring hair extensions and Micro Bond hair extensions. They are both permanent methods, the main difference is that Micro Rings can be re-used, and Micro Bonds require new hair each fitting. At Vixen & Blush all our methods are made using the finest hair from The London Hair Lab!

Micro Rings

Micro Rings are a very popular permanent method they are re-usable and very safe. The fitting and removal process are super simple and comfortable. No glue is used to fit the hair extensions and we manufacture our own Micro Rings to fit our handmade strands of hair.

Micro Bonds

Micro Bonds are a permanent method that uses keratin resin to fit strands of hair by moulding small bonds by hand alongside carefully controlled sections.

Micro Bonds are a very versatile method as our stylists can make tiny bonds where needed and offer something more for clients who need a discreet method of adding hair.

The main difference with Micro Bonds is that the hair can’t be reused, so new hair is needed each time. Micro Bonds are a permanent method and will last for 3 months.

Sarah Mckenna

Sarah McKenna is the founder of Vixen & Blush and The London Hair Lab. Sarah graduated as a research biochemist in 2005 and started a career within the pharmaceutical industry, before becoming a hair extensions expert. In 2010, Sarah gained insight into the hair extensions industry and could see that clients had a very poor value/quality proposition. At that time, poor-quality hair extensions were available, at prohibitively high prices. Sarah left her initial career and set out on a mission to improve the hair extensions industry in the UK, using her research and development skills.

Spending 3 years securing a high-quality and sustainable supply of human hair, Sarah then developed new products and fitting techniques to allow long-term refits of the same hair. In this way, Sarah was able to offer hair extensions services at a more affordable price to clients, while improving the quality of the service for her clients.

With Vixen & Blush starting in 2012 as a 1 chair salon in London, Sarah quickly grew the business to what it is today, a team of more than 20 hair professionals working together as London’s leading hair extensions specialists.
