How are Mark Glenn hair extensions attached?
The extensions are attached using a very fine braid (for those who are interested, we use a four-stem braid). To get this right, we need two technicians working simultaneously and sharing the creation of the braid between them. You can see this in action in some of our hair extension videos →
We take a small section of your existing hair and split this into two. The fibre is also split into two to make the braid and is finally wrapped around the base of your hair, protecting it.
The fibre is then "sealed on itself" using a heat tool (which is no hotter than a typical pair of curling tongs or crimpers). This creates a tiny plastic seal.
It's important to point out that during this process, your own hair is safely "cocooned" inside the fibre so it doesn't come into direct contact with any heat or, indeed, the plastic seal itself - therefore, your own hair stays in perfect condition.
In effect, apart from the fibre itself, the only thing your hair comes into contact with is our fingers!
