Individual Micro Beads
Individual MicroBeads are a great option when it comes to individuals. They don't involve glue, so if you're trying to stay away from glue and sewing, this may be the method for you. They're very easy to put into a pony tail and easy to hide. Tightening is only recommended every 2-3 months since tightening weakens the bond that holds the hair together.
The following prices include the installation, a cut for blending if desired, and a style.

Tightening Individual Micro Beads
Unlike the weft/track extensions, Individual Micro Beads don't have to be tightened as often. You can tighten them often, but the more you tighten them, the weaker the individual bond that hold the hairs together will get. Therefore, the more you tighten, the more shedding you'll experience. On average, humans lose 50-150 strands of hair per day. Tightenings are especially important because hair that has already naturally shed will be stuck in the beads until I have a chance to brush them out. Because of this, it's still recommended to tighten if you're keeping them longer than 3 months. Waiting longer periods than 3 months of time in between tightening can cause tangling, matting, and stress to your natural hair. Usually, after 12 weeks without a tightening, I will have to remove the extensions and put them back in. Even if they feel fine, book an appointment so we can make sure there is no tangling or other problems that you may not be able to see on your own. Tightening prices vary and can be seen under the prices menu.

Pros and Cons
Great for fine-medium hair
Don't involve glue or sewing, so they're more gentle on the hair.
Easy to put in a pony tail These hide well in a ponytail because they're so small.
Can be tightened, so clients who like the feeling of tight extensions will like these.
"Individual hair" runs on the finer side, so you may need to add on extra strands to get the thickness you desire
Tightening these extensions does loosen the bond that holds the hair together, therefore possibly causing shedding of the hair.
