PRE-BONDED HAIR EXTENSIONS

Pre-bonded hair extensions are incredibly popular and consist of applying individual hairs that are bonded together at the ends by a keratin protein glue into a strand. The pre-bonded hair extensions are then melted by a fusion iron or fusion heat wand which then connects to individual sections of your hair or for those who want to stay away from the heat we also do cold fusion which takes slightly longer but is very secure.

The bond is as small as a grain of rice and see-through. This helps to create a seamless blending of the hair extensions with your natural hair, ensuring that nobody needs to know that you are wearing hair extensions at all!
