Mermaid Hair Extensions
The Mermaid micro bead technique also know as “I Tip” uses a non-slip micro bead to attach a tip extension to the existing hair. The tip looks much like the end of an ever-so-thin shoelace tip. The extensions are attached by using a micro bead and a loop tool.No heat, glue or chemicals! Beaded extensions are semi-permanent and last an average of 6 months depending upon quality of care.
What makes it so unique? Its that it is handmade by a mermaid. It’s twice as thick as any companies hair on the market and twice as special because you can customize it however you’d like. Think of it like ordering a pizza, you pick the toppings and we make it just for you (Or your client). In addition to creating it customizable this is how we’ve saved you time on installation as well. When Katie first started doing extensions, she would fill the client’s whole head with 200 thin single gram strands. That is when Katie started her search for thicker hair on the market but could not find anything and that is when she decided she would create her own. By combining the 200 thin strands together to make 100 thick strands. Now you get twice the hair in half the time!
