Creating Volume and Thickness Using Hair Extensions
There’s no getting around the fact that full, voluminous hair will always be in style. It’s a classic choice that’s closely linked to images of health and youth, and it’s having a particular moment now with mermaid-y waves, Victoria’s Secret-like blowouts, and shaggy boy band hair. It’s no wonder, then, that hair extensions are becoming more popular than ever, giving clients the means to turn their existing hair into a full-on mane. Babe’s core extension methods—Fusion, I-Tip, Tape-In, and, most recently, Flat-Tip—are helping women and men around the country achieve the hair of their dreams.
But that’s not all that we’ve been up to. As with any art form, material products are only part of the story. We at Babe have also been developing new techniques for using those products, so we can achieve volume and thickness in new and innovative ways. Take our Micro Bond technique, which involves cutting down a Fusion extension into a series of smaller strands: where once you could only add thickness to the bottom and sides of the head (or the “base,” if you will), Micro Bonds allow you to add dimension to the crown and hairline, giving you greater thickness at the roots and a slew of new possibilities. Just think about it—in a full-head installation, you can only add enough extensions to recreate the thickness at the top of the head at the ends of the hair. This makes for the most natural look. But if you can add thickness directly to the top of the head using inconspicuous Micro Bonds, you can expand your volume threshold for the ends as well, transforming thin hair into a bodacious ‘do. Of course, we don’t recommend adding more hair extensions than the natural hair can comfortably hold. The same 1:1 rule—where the natural hair section equals the hair extension thickness—applies to these cases. But it’s nice to have the room to roam!
Pair the Micro Bonding technique with our traditional methods for the most comprehensive and customizable installation ever, and achieve unprecedented volume in the process!
