    Silver hair extensions, will they grab toner more than clients own hair?

    I have a new client who has silver hair and I have matched her hair to some silver extensions from my supplier. What I’m wondering is when her hair needs toning again can she also tone the extensions? She wouldn’t need to as they’re already silver but should she just section her own hair and...

    Hair extension sections

    When I trained on micro rings I was shown to take 1cm x 1cm x 1cm triangle sections to put each bond onto. Ive seen a lot of people taking square sections for each bonds therefore leaving no clients own hair out unlike the triangles Is there a right or wrong way? What does everyone else do?
