MICO LINKS

WHAT ARE MICRO LINKS?


Micro links is more of a technique than it is a thing. I offer the " invisible bead " micro link technique using wefted hair . Some stylist reference braid-less sew-ins as micro links as well. While there is no braids with the invisible bead technique as well, the two techniques are completely different. In an invisible bead technique install there is only a weft, a bead, and your hair. In a braid-less sew in, there is a weft, a bead, your hair, AND thread.




WHY GET A MICRO LINK INSTALL INSTEAD OF A BASIC SEW IN OR BRAID-LESS SEW-IN?


With an invisible bead technique install, all your hair is out which makes it easier for you to get regular shampoos and conditioning treatments done to your hair. Shampooing and conditioning your hair on the regular promotes a healthy scalp and also healthy hair growth.




HOW LONG DOES A MICRO LINK INSTALL LAST?


12 weeks with proper maintenance




HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO GET MAINTENANCE?


At least once per month.




HOW MANY BUNDLES OF HAIR DO I NEED FOR A FULL INSTALL?


Every client is different. In order to get an install your hair needs to be thick enough to have at least 1 bundle installed. While this may sound like a small amount of hair, please keep in mind that ALL OF YOUR HAIR IS OUT in a micro link install which accounts for space on your head. To date I have never installed more than 2 bundles as hair in any install.




IS HAIR INCLUDED IN THE INSTALL PRICE OR DO I NEED TO PROVIDE THE HAIR?


Yes it is required ( unless previously discussed with me) to get hair from me to ensure a flawless micro link install. ALL TYPES OF HAIR DO NOT WORK FOR MICRO LINK INSTALLS.




WHAT TYPE OF HAIR DO YOU PROVIDE FOR INSTALLS?


Hair type is determined based on the natural texture of your hair. I use Raw Cambodian, Raw Indian, or TOP quality virgin hair in textures, kinky curly, afro kinky curly, deep wave, or loose curly.




CAN RELAXED OR NATURAL CLIENTS GET A MICRO LINK INSTALL?


I only like to install Micro links on natural hair or relaxed hair that has at least 2 months. When your hair is relaxed your cuticle is a little weak. To ensure the integrity of your hair, I don't feel comfortable adding tension to your hair in its relaxed state.




WHAT IS THE AT HOME CARE FOR MICRO LINKS? CAN I SHAMPOO MY OWN HAIR?


On a daily basis, BRUSH YOUR HAIR FROM THE ROOT, TWICE A DAY WITH A PADDLE BRUSH! This is soooo important because your hair can get tangled at the root if not brushed constantly. You can shampoo your hair on your own as long as you DETANGLE YOUR HAIR FROM THE ROOT. PLEASE USE A GOOD DETANGLER ( MIRCLE 10 IS GREAT) when doing this.




WHY DO I NEED A CONSULTATION BEFORE I BOOK AN APPOINTMENT?


A consultation is required before an appointment because everyone is not a candidate for installs. Making sure your hair is long enough and healthy enough is important. A consultation is also required to see the texture of your hair to match it perfectly to the extensions. Without texture matching, your install may not be natural, which defeats the purpose of a micro link or I-tip install.




I'M READY TO BOOK MY CONSULTATION, WHAT DO I DO AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?


Consultations are free and can be booked by clicking the "BOOK A CONSULTATION" link. You can do a consultation in person ( only if I am working that day in the salon). You may also do the consultation through pictures and videos. You can upload your pictures and videos or text them to 404-590-9450. If you send pictures through text messages I will need the following information: Name, date of appointment wanted, photos and videos of your natural texture of hair and straight look. PLEASE BE SURE TO SHOW YOUR EDGES AND ANY BREAKAGE YOU MAY HAVE.




WHAT IS THE PRICE FOR AN INSTALL?


As of January 1, 2020, a full micro link install is $450. This includes 1 bundle of hair from 14"-20" any outside lengths or extra full bundles are an additinal $100.00 and half a bundle is $60. Prices are subject to change, please be sure you consult with me first to make sure of pricing.




HOW LONG DOES MY HAIR HAVE TO BE?


The length of hair is determined on a case by case basis but the standard is to at least have hair to your ear lobe. Your hair can not be cut in a blunt bob as that causes a line of demarkation ( being able to tell the difference from the weave from your hair)





I-TIPS

WHAT ARE ITPS?


I-tips are stand by stand extensions added to your hair with a bead.




HOW LONG DO ITIPS LAST?


6 months with proper maintenance




HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO GET MAINTENANCE?


At least every 6 to 8 weeks.




HOW MANY STRAND OF HAIR DO I NEED FOR A FULL INSTALL?


Every install is different based on the client. For clients with thinner hair, no more than 100 strands. For clients with thicker hair, you may need 150 to 250 depending on how thick your hair is.
