Hair Bonding

In this method, the hair weaving expert will braid your natural hair in the area where you need to attach weaves. Then the hair weft will be sewed into your natural braided hair firmly. 


This method is expensive and time-consuming.  There are two types of fusion technique, hot fusion technique, and cold fusion technique. 

In the hot fusion technique, the natural hair is divided into several small sections. Then the hair weft is added into the small sections of natural hair by applying keratin glue with a heated machine. 

Cold fusion or i-tip extensions do not use any heated equipment for weaving the hair. This method is made into small sections and slipped into a copper cylinder. Then, the hair weft is inserted into each copper cylinder containing natural hair, and then the cylinder is compressed into the hair close to the scalp.


In this method, small toupee clips are sewed into the hair wefts. Then the hair weft is placed in the natural hair, which is divided into sections with opened clips. Then the clip with weft is attached to the hair by closing the clip with the natural hair.


The net is first measured over the area that is to be covered. And then, the natural hair is braided around the outer perimeter of the net. Finally, the net is sewed onto the braid, and the hair weaves then attached to the net.
