There aren’t just different hair extensions, there are also differences in how they’re applied. Common hair extension applications include micro-link hair extensions, weave hair extensions, tape hair extensions and pre-bonded/fusion extensions.


Micro-link hair extensions:

These are also known as micro-bead or loop hair extensions. Malmquist says they’re applied by looping the extensions through natural hair and clamping it down with a pair of pliers and a metal bead.


Weave hair extensions:

“Weave” is a common term used to mean hair extensions, but there are specific weave extensions. They are applied by braiding the natural hair into a cornrow and using a needle and cotton thread to attach the extra lengths.


Tape-in hair extensions:

These are classified as semi-permanent extensions. They’re pre-taped and sandwiched on either side of natural hair.


Pre-bonded extensions:

These are also referred to as fusion hair extensions. They are attached to natural hair using different adhesives, such as keratin and glue.


Clip-in extensions:

Waajid reveals that these can be the least damaging to hair if applied correctly because they are not attached to a braid. They are clipped to hair and quick to install.


Net weaving extensions:

Net weaving is another weaving technique where a net is sewn on the base of the cornrows, then the weave weft extensions are sewn to the net. This prevents additional stress on the hair.


Crochet extensions:

Crochet extensions are done using the same technique used to apply weft weaving, but the extensions are not sewn on to the braids. They are applied using a latch hook needle.
