Also called easy ring extensions, have become unbelievably popular over the last 3 years. Attaching this type of extension is simple and quick. The human hair is pulled through a micro ring and then pressed shut using hair extension pliers. Why would you want to choose this method of application? Here are some reasons: * Gentle and safe method. A good option if you are scared to damage your hair as they don’t involve heat or glue, absolutely non damaging for your hair. * Quick application and removal.

Funnily enough, a common question is ‘will the micro rings (which are often made of metal) cause problems with x-ray machines such as those used when going through security points at airports’. A lot of my clients use micro rings hair extensions method and nobody has ever had any issues at airports with the beeper going off. I’ve also had dental x-rays and they didn’t effect the machine. I’d expect it could cause issues if you were having a scan of the top of your head? Don’t forget about micro rings extensions maintenance. As your natural hair grows every month, your extensions will move down and will become visible. That is why its is important to maintain your hair every 2 months. With the help of pliers, extensions strands will be moved up, closer to the roots and you will be able to keep your micro rings extensions for longer.
