Yeah its same with new clients too when i explain how its done they say theyve never heard of them! So strange when your doing it everyday! I did have a girl a couple of weeks ago phone me and she thought we extensed hair literally strand by strand gluing hair to the ends!! No idea how i managed not to laugh!x

No probs thats what this place is hear for! I chose to train in micro rings because i think 'glue' scares ppl off. Even though the glue is made up of natural substances i dont think alot of ppl realise this. I didnt untill i started doing them. I had glue done ages ago before i fitted hair and had a bad exoerience which put me off a little. In hine sight looking back with what i know today i probably didnt give them enough TLC! I also chose it as my first method because i thought there is last chance of me harming someone haha!:Grope: It was my first time into the business world so i took an easier route to start with..i knowi know!
saying all that i have now become very confident in the micro ring and i do love it, however i find its not that great with thin hair. I myself have rings and its very hard to stop them showing!:rolleyes: after recent research i found that the pre-bonded were alot better for this type of client. So iv booked in with Lush Us and doing the course in a few weeks. so excited!
I think each method has its positives and negatives? x

Yea your right both have pros and cons. I think micro rings are good because if the hair is well looked after they can be re used(in the same client obviously eeww lol). But yea I find bonds easier to hide etc basically what you've just said lol xx

Hi
I love them and they are more popular than anything else with my clients. I think it depends on what shrinkie your using, I have an adhesive lined inside that is really good, it's got an outer thicker wall and shrinks down to a hold a really small tip, they don't split either when the connector is held on longer than usual.

To remove a full head of shrinkies, I remove by putting the heat connector on all the shrinkies, there is a bit or residue left on the hair and. Use the balmain remap gun to remove the residue, takes about one hour to an hour and half.

Am I right in thinking shrinkies are the see through tubes that are melted to the stick tip? Or are you guys thinking shrinkies are the thin metal micro tubes?

Shrinkies are the see through tubes, not the metal tubes.

Definitely Micro Ring, I initially trained in the glue methods about 8 years ago, Micro ring are such a difference, less mess and minimal damage x
