Micro Bond Hair Extensions

suitable for even the finest hair types

The Micro Bond method is a versatile method that can be used on finer hair types

safest and most discreet method

Who are they for?

Micro Bonds are great for clients who

  • are not suitable for other methods as they have sparse hair at the root (lacking in density)
  • like to place hair extensions further forward or lower down at the nape compared to other methods
  • prefer wearing a method that is permanent and more hard-wearing than other methods

OVERVIEW

What are micro bond hair extensions?

Micro Bond Hair Extensions are the smallest, most discreet and versatile way of adding hair extensions.

A high level of technical skill is needed to perform this method and so it is not widely offered in regular salons.  As a specialist salon, we offer this method to our clients who cannot have the micro ring or tape method fitted as their hair is lacking density at the root.

When we first meet a client, usually at a consultation, we start by thinking of how to safely fit hair extensions at the first appointment and for many many years after.  So that - in ten years time we know that we can achieve the same result for a client as we did at their first appointment.

Micro Bonding - see how we do it!

Small Micro Bonds made of keratin resin - the same protein found in hair and nails - are formed by hand.  Each bond is adjustable in size, and can be matched to each client's hair density carefully.

The bond is small and very discreet, especially when a root to tip colour match is achieved.  When bonds are added, volume is built up slowly but the results are supremely natural as the hair moves freely and integrates easily into the client's own hair.

A safe and discreet method

Our Service Explained

Micro Bond Hair Extensions are fitted by taking a small safe section of a client's own hair and rolling a keratin tipped strand of hair around it with our fingertips, creating a bond the size of a grain of rice.

This method requires a higher level of technical skill than others and is the safest and most reliable method of adding hair for those client's with finer hair types or who want to add hair in more sensitive areas safely, to create a particular result.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Still Have Questions?

What we get asked about micro bonds..
Can I still get my hair dyed while wearing this method?

Yes, it is totally fine to dye the roots of your own hair while wearing hair extensions.

We advise that you apply the dye to the halo section of your hair, where there are no hair extensions, and avoid painting on the dye directly on top of the bonds.

For anyone who is concerned about the underneath not being dyed as regularly, we recommend pairing an appointment for colour with your removal/refit so that the underneath part does get refreshed once every 3 months.

For other clients who are not trying to cover grey or don't have colour applied to their roots regularly, allowing the underneath part of the hair to grow out natural is very common.

Does this method use glue - I don't like the sound of that at all....?!?

We have offered hair extensions to clients in London for 10 years now and we get asked this exact question all the time!

We get how scary the idea of glue is.

We don't consider this method the 'glue' method no.

We never ever fit the bond method on anyone who doesn't like the look of it, or has an immediate aversion to the concept of bonds.

However, the bonds are heated and reformed as bonds in your hair and do need to be removed by us (or someone skilled) later with a gel remover.

We are experts in hair extensions and we LOVE this method.  We know what we are doing and we also source the products we use ourselves.

The only way to really show our clients the ins and outs of this method is to fit test pieces - which we offer for free at the consultation.

 

Will my colleagues, partner and friends know I'm wearing hair extensions?

When deciding to have hair extensions fitted, some clients are a little nervous about that big reveal moment at work, or sometimes even at home with their nearest an dearest.

Not all services make a big enough difference to be instantly recognisable as hair extensions and so sometimes we get feedback that clients get comments like 'oh!, nice haircut' or 'did you get your hair done'.... but not comments like 'oh, look, you got hair extensions'.

The big transformations are very instantly recognised as having additional hair added, but having a discreet amount of hair, expertly placed and then a professional haircut afterwards, can often not be identified as hair extensions, but rather just looks like a healthier version of your own hair.

Micro Bonds - more questions our clients ask us..
Pros and Cons of the Micro Bonding method

Pros

  • Suitable for fine hair types
  • Suitable for those lacking density at the root
  • Suitable for clients with more brittle hair texture (such as those with grey hair)
  • The most realistic natural-looking results for clients with challenging hair issues (such as previous bleach damage to the ends)
  • Can add bonds in more mobile areas of the head such as around the ear, the hair near the temples and at the nape of the neck
  • Can add more hair in safely, for those wanting to maximise their results
  • Long-lasting (3 months wear time)

Cons

  • Not a re-usable method
  • Take longer to remove and re-apply than other methods
Can I wear my hair up with this method?

We don't advise you to wear your hair up in high ponytails with any method.

However, the bonds, especially once grown out a little bit, can be very comfortably worn in a loose and low ponytail, or styled into an upstyle for events.

What is the maintenance like - will I have to spend hours in front of the mirror?

This is our most commonly asked question.

We do understand that clients are under time pressure with work - and life in general - and the idea of adding any more time to their morning routine fills them with dread...

But we have good news!

Hair Extensions of course do take longer to blow dry, but once they are dried, you can heat style them and they will hold that style for 3 days easily - without any further time needed.

What is very typical is that clients just wash their hair fewer times each week.  And overall actually spend less time on their hair.

If you heat style, even with basic skills, your hair will look amazing and stay that way for much longer.
