• Braided sew-in. This is when a stylist cornrows your natural hair and then sews the extensions to the braids.
• Keratin tip. This is essentially an advanced way of gluing the extensions to small sections of hair.
• Micro-links. Think of this like clip-ins, except the clip is tiny and attaches to very small sections of hair.
• One-step weft. This is when the extensions are sewed onto small beads that have been attached at the roots of your hair.
