Types of Extensions

Hand Tied Wefts

Wefts of hair that are sewn onto a track made from your hair and silicone beads. We safely determine the amount of hair necessary to create the track based on your density. Then 1-4 skinny wefts can be sewn to that.
This method offers flexibility, comfort, high pony’s, great for active lifestyles and ability to sandwich multiple colours together for dimension. These lightweight veils are hand-knotted with fine thread and designed to lay close to the scalp for maximum comfort and wearability. Stack wefts for volume and blend different shades to add dimension

Bellami Keratin Tip (K-Tip) extensions are installed using a heating element which safely melts the Keratin Tips onto your own hair. This Keratin Tip is partially made of the same naturally occurring protein found in your hair.

A silicone additive on the K-tip helps to create a protective coating for your natural hair strands. The K-tips are bonded close to the roots of the hair, I will ensure there is enough space to allow free movement of your hair which maintains a natural layered texture and feel to your hair.

3-6 month wear and then a removal is required. For re-application new hair is installed.
