Just curious to how long it takes you to fit a full head of bonds? It takes me around 5-6 hours and I always see people saying it takes them like 2 hours on facebook etc.
I've been doing them for a year and a half nearly so it's not like I'm new I must just be really slow?[emoji30]

For a full head of 18-20" (usually 180-220 strands) it takes me about 3 hours all in including proper cutting and styling. For a full head of 14-16" maybe 2.5hours as I use less of these. That's been me doing them almost daily for about 6 years though xxx

It usually takes me around 2 hours to fit 150 bonds and 2.5 hours for 200 bonds if there's not too many stops, it can depend on the set up though as if I go to the client sometimes the set up isn't ideal so its not as easy to fit them so quickly.
A set up where you have everything to hand will save you time but it's not always possible if you go to clients. X

It takes me around 2 hours to apply micro rings and 2.5 to apply pre-bonded.I use hairdressers belt for my tools, this helps a lot.You will get quicker with time.

I don't know why but my timings vary massively. A week ago I fitted 140 stick tips and from starting to her leaving was 4 hours. That included cut & styling. Fitted 150 this evening and she was in & out in 2 & 1/2 hours after the full works. Think it depends how my days gone! [emoji23]
