There are a range of professional hair extension methods, which are suitable for different hair types and hair goals. Weft hair extensions add ultimate thickness and are considered a low-maintenance method. Micro-ring hair extensions are very small and as a result, are super discreet. Pre-bonded hair extensions are formulated with Keratin, so they’re durable but gentle and offer long-lasting results. Tape extensions are super quick to apply and blend discreetly with your natural hair

In this post we’ll go into more detail about the different types of professional hair extensions methods.

  • Weft Extensions
  • Stick Tip Extensions
  • Flat Tip Extensions
  • Tape Extensions
  • Nanobond Extensions


Our tape-in hair extensions are a favourite with our customers. Tape is applied at the root and won't leave residue like glue, making them super lightweight and undetectable. Tapes can be used to add highlights, fillers, volume and thickness. Maintenance appointments for tape extensions should be done every 6-8 weeks.



Wefts are the perfect low maintenance way to add length and volume to your hair. They are easy to install and maintain, which makes them ideal for busy women who want to get great beauty results with very little effort.



Stick tip hair extensions are a fun and fuss-free way to get instant long hair. Unlike a glue method, the micro rings are used to secure the hair extensions to strands of your own hair, helping you avoid damage and discomfort. Maintenance appointments for stick tips are usually needed every 6-8 weeks, so hair can be kept fresh and feeling healthy.


Nanobond extensions are suitable for all hair types, they are applied with our smallest nano rings and blend seamlessly into the hair. Perfect for hair up styling, Nanobonds are also super lightweight. If you’re looking to create your perfect shade then you can easily choose a few different colours to blend.



Flat tips are a great option if you’re looking for a long lasting solution that is also gentle on your hair. Each set features a specially formulated bond made of Keratin, which means that they’re very gentle on your own hair. You can enjoy wearing them for up to three months before needing an appointment.



Firstly we recommend having a detailed conversation with one of our salon experts, but for a small insight we recommend using a brush that has soft bristles and use salon professional shampoo and conditioner specifically made to protect hair extensions.
