What are micro link extensions?

Micro links are extensions that use small beads that attach the extensions to your hair. It involves looping on a micro bead just below the root of your hair, inserting an i-tip extension into the bead, and then clamping the bead to secure the i-tip to your hair. The clamping of the hair makes sure the hair stays in place without glue or sew-ins.

When done by a professional or if you get enough practice in, these extensions are virtually undetectable. And they give a full and more balanced look to areas that are thinning or low on hair.
