Extensions on Fine or Thin Hair
Extensions on extremely fine or thin hair can be a scary undertaking. Many Stylists and clients alike think it's not possible. But extensions are possible! It is about placement, the size, and the type of bond you use.
- Custom Bond Size
Size of Bonds
SHE keratin tips can be cut into halves, thirds, or quarters for a micro invisible attachment. SHE Academy teaches multiple placement options for delicate work on fine and compromised hair. The SHE method uses a 200-degree lower bonding process that will not damage already fragile strands.
Type of Bond for Fine Hair
We find round bonds are the most natural-looking bond for fine hair, especially around the crown, temples, and neckline. Flat bonds on the back of the head work great to minimize friction for back sleepers if the hair is thick enough to cover. Also, it is essential not to place the bonds close to the scalp as that can cause strain as the weight of the bond is not distributed evenly.
