Single Weft Microlinks:
Our Single Weft Microlinks method is designed for clients with thin to fine hair. The microbeads are installed between the wefts providing a seamless install that blends perfectly with the client’s natural hair. Also referred to as the floating weft extension method. Single weft Microlinks traditionally uses 1-1.5 bundles, very lightweight, and minimum to no tension is experienced. This is a perfect method to add volume and length to shorter hair.
Double X Single Weft Microlinks:
This combination provides a seamless blend with the volume you desire. The single weft is installed from the crown up and the double weft are hand tied over a row of microbeads to provide maximum fullness and added length. Double weft is great for clients who want a full install look with 2-2.5 bundles while still having versatility. Ponytail and high bun approved!

Unsure which method is best to choose?
Schedule a FREE 15 min. phone consultation with us. We’ll ask you a couple of questions to determine which technique would work best for your hair and lifestyle.
Is there a certain hair texture or length that Microlinks are better suited for?
Microlinks are great for all hair textures. A texture match can be performed to accomplish your style goals. Microlinks are best suited for clients with hair at least 4-5″ long to ensure there is enough hair to cover the microbeads and weft/ITIPS and pass the ponytail test.
If your hair is short, you may not have the same versatility as someone with longer hair, but you can still get Microlinks.
Is there a big difference between Single, Double or I tips Microlinks?
Each method can provide a different outcome. We sometimes combine these methods when installing to provide our clients with the look and feel they are looking for. All three methods are different and suited for clients based on the health, weight and density of their natural hair.
How often should I do a Refresh/ Tightening?
A refresh is when we move the hair extension back up. On average our hair grows about half an inch every 4 weeks. By 6 weeks there is a separation between your scalp and the hair extension. We first will move the hair extension to its original place, this will prevent any tangling or breakage between the new growth. We proceed by washing and styling your luxury microlinks. This process feels like getting a new install after we are done, but done in half the time.
If you have thin hair, we recommend that you come back every 4 weeks. If you have medium to thick hair we recommend you come in 6 weeks.
Tape in hair extensions: we are unable to move the hair extension back up without starting from scratch. With tape in hair extensions we have to remove, replace the old tape and reinstall.
