We are here to break things down, make it simple, and give you the look you’ve always dreamed of.
3 Types of Extensions We Offer
Clip-ins, tape-ins, weaves, sew-in, volume weft pre-bonded, fusion, keratin bond, micro-link – the world of hair extensions can quickly become confusing. There are so many different types of hair extensions, all promising to deliver Beyoncé-worthy results. At Alter’d Culture in Louisville, KY – we stick to three main types of hair extensions that work in any situation to give you the look you want without all the fuss.
If you have short hair, or a blunt haircut and want some extra length or volume, a weft might be exactly what you’re looking for. Volume weft hair is ideal for coarse, curly, or naturally thick hair to give you length or volume.
Weft extensions are installed directly to your natural hair by beads, or braids, to give you a super secure base. They will need to be moved up every 4-8 weeks, depending on your hair growth. Our stylists at Alter’d Culture in Louisville are trained in installing volume weft extensions using a looping tool, beads, a micro-beaded threader, a spool of nylon-based thread and a curved sewing needle.
If you have fine or coarse, medium or thick hair and it’s completely free from chemicals (like a relaxer or a perm) – you’re a candidate for I-tip extensions. These are the Hollywood secret no one wants you to know about. While they’ve been a popular option offered at high-end salons for years, they are just now becoming more mainstream.
I-Tip extensions latch on to your natural hair with a microbead or a tiny copper cylinder (the combination of metal is why it’s important not to mix I-tip extensions with chemical treatments). Because they are on the individual piece of hair, it makes it more natural looking, and allows for a topknot, ponytail or braided style without worrying about covering up your extensions.
Tape-in extensions win the popularity contest when it comes to adding in extra locks. They are one of the more affordable extension options, which makes them more popular. Tape-in hair extensions can be used by almost anyone.
Tape-in extensions use medical grade adhesive to sandwich your natural hair between two wefts of hair extensions. The wefts are only 1-inch wide, so you’ll have several wefts across your entire head. The adhesive is very thin, feels light, and lays flat. Tape-ins are easy to blend in with your natural hair as long as they are done by a professional.
At Alter’d Culture in Louisville, we take the time to ensure that your extensions are always distributed evenly in terms of length, volume, and texture to give you a natural and beautiful look.
Removing & Replacing Extensions
You should never attempt to remove your hair extensions yourself. You will likely do more damage to your existing hair, and it’s not safe to attempt this without a trained professional.
If you wish to remove your extensions or are having any type of issues with them, please contact Alter’d Culture as soon as possible.
