    Hair Extension FAQs

    Hair extensions are a wonderful way to take your naturally beautiful hair to the next level. Most often, our clients come to us seeking hair extensions for three main reasons:

    Hair Growth/Length: If your hair is slow to grow, can’t seem to reach the lengths you’re dreaming of, or is recovering from a ‘too-short’ haircut, an extension technician may be able to help. Typically available in lengths from 16 to 24”, hair extensions can create long, flowing locks.

    Volume: Length isn’t the only thing hair extensions can achieve! If your hair is fine, flat, or generally lacking in volume, a correctly placed set of extensions could help create a blowout-worthy shape

    Confidence: A perfectly colour-matched, top-quality set of hair extensions can do wonderful things for everyday self-confidence!

    Hair extensions are made and supplied by a range of manufacturers, from well-known brands catering to the general public to salon-specific, exclusive suppliers. Regardless of the manufacturer, the most important aspects of extensions are their material and quality.

    The best hair extensions are typically made using human hair – some of which, like that sold under Remy, is graded for quality. The human hair used in these products is sourced from all over the world in order to ensure variety in colour and texture, but the vast majority of high-quality batches are derived from India.

    Synthetic hair extensions are also available. They’re typically made from acrylic fibres designed to mimic the texture and behaviour of human hair, but can’t stand heat styling in most circumstances. For this reason, the Hair Ministry team deal only in high-quality human hair.

    Which type of hair extension is better (in terms of breakage, maintenance, and longevity) for your hair is mostly determined by your hair type, and lifestyle. For this reason, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer! The following guidelines should provide some insight as to the best for your hair as an individual, however, we highly recommend booking in for a consultation in which a specialist hair can complete a full, expert analysis of your hair in person.

    Nano ring extensions: Known for its very small, discreet nature, this option attaches lightweight extensions to the hair using rings. It is well suited to those with thin or fine or thin hair, and with the time to attend regular maintenance appointments.

    Micro-weft extensions: Micro wefts, as their name suggests, involves attaching small wefts of hair to the natural hair using rings, clips, or adhesive tape. Perfect for those on the go, micro-wefts provide a quicker installation process but tend to be more noticeable than other methods once placed within the natural hair.

    Invisible weave extensions: Invisible weave hair extensions offer an innovative approach to creating a natural appearance. It involves the use of wefts set on a thin, transparent polyurethane base that, when installed, mimics the appearance of the scalp. They’re applied using adhesive or tape, requiring no heat.

    When it comes to the longevity of hair extensions, it’s important to note that your commitment to care and maintenance will play the largest role. Your stylist should be able to advise on the best hair extension option for your lifestyle in this regard. With this said, the type of hair extension you choose can play a role in how long they last.

    Nano ring: Nano ring extensions create tight bonds between natural hair and hair extensions using small rings. They typically last between two to four months before repositioning or general maintenance is required.

    Micro-weft: Micro-weft extensions have a typical longevity of two to three months before repositioning is required. During this period, maintenance may be required in order to ensure security and blending.

    Invisible weave: With proper care and maintenance, invisible weave extensions can last between six to eight weeks before requiring repositioning due to hair growth.

    Visibility can be a big concern for those looking into getting hair extensions, particularly if they wear their hair up in sleek styles. Ultimately, whether or not your new additions will be noticeable depends on the type of extensions, the installation method, and the styling techniques used.

    Our team recommends seeking a skilled stylist who can identify the correct hair extension type for your natural locks and subtly place them. We most often recommend micro-weft extensions for those looking to wear their hair up often, but nanoring may work equally well depending on your hair type and lifestyle.

    For a complete analysis of your hair type and unique hair extension type recommendation, be sure to book in for a consultation.

    Nano ring extensions are some of the most popular available and for good reason! They’re able to offer additional length and volume whilst remaining discreet and lightweight, appearing as beautifully natural as possible once installed in the hair.

    They involve adding extension hair to the natural hair using tiny rings nano rings, a new type of attachment up to 90% smaller than standard micro-rings! These rings are attached using a clamping tool, meaning no heat, glue, or sewing is required. The final blend is near seamless when completed by a skilled stylist.

    What’s better, this extension type typically lasts for between two to four months before repositioning or general maintenance is required.

    Micro-weft hair extensions are a popular hair extension method – and most likely the kind most people think of when they hear the word ‘extensions’. Micro-weft appointments typically involve attaching small wefts of extension hair to the natural hair along the parting line using clips or micro rings. It’s thought by most to be both quick and discreet.

    With proper care and maintenance, micro-wefts can last between two to three months before needing adjustments or repositioning due to hair growth. They’re particularly popular amongst clients who wear their hair up often!

    Tape-in extensions are a quick, convenient method of hair extension installation. The extensions themselves are made up of pre-taped wefts of hair, usually about 1-1.5 inches wide, applied using a ‘sandwiching’ method around the natural hair using adhesive tape. This creates a secure bond set to last for between six to eight weeks before requiring hair positioning due to hair growth. 

     

    Despite this relatively quick turnaround time as a result of growth, when maintained correctly, high-quality tape in hair extensions can often be repositioned and reused.

    The term ‘Remy hair’ refers to a high-quality grade of human hair for use in hair extensions and wigs. In order to be considered Remy, the hair’s cuticles and outer protective layers must be both intact, and aligned in the same direction from root to tip.

    For hair extension clients, Remy hair is the best possible choice. Its consistent quality prevents tangling and matting, whilst ensuring a natural look and feel. In addition, Remy hair allows for styling, colouring, and treatment, resulting in a seamless final blend, and long-lasting results.

    Hair Ministry is proud to work exclusively with Remy hair extensions.
