Why Are Microlink Hair Extensions So Popular?
This method used to be just be exclusive just to celebrities and has now crossed over into the mainstream. Microlink hair extensions are safe and seamless. But there are two major types of microlink extensions
1. Microlink Weft Extensions
This is where your natural hair is linked with microlinks to create a foundation of beads or links to which create a bridge across your scalp. The bridge is created by pulling your natural hair through the opening of the bead then closing the bead with a plier type instrument which holds the bead into place until its time for your microlink maintenance. After creating the line of beads across the scalp using the micro link bead of choice and fastening it closed then the stylist will decide on what type of hair to sew onto the beaded foundation. Some stylist change up the method to include no thread and decides to pull your hair and the hair from the wefted hair from the beaded opening to create the bridge foundation at the scalp without thread.
2. Microlink strands or fusion microlink.
