All About Microlinks – Why You Should Try Them

Updated: Jun 5

Hey Beauties! Today, we’re diving into the world of Microlinks – one of my absolute favorite hair extension methods. I personally love wearing Microlinks because they give me the versatility and natural look I adore. Whether you're looking to switch up your look or you're a stylist interested in offering something new to your clients, Microlinks might be just what you need. Let’s explore what Microlinks are, their benefits, and why you might want to consider getting certified in this amazing technique.



What Are Microlinks?


Microlinks, also known as microbead or I-tip extensions, are a type of hair extension that uses small, silicone-lined beads to attach the extensions to your natural hair. Here’s why they’re fantastic:


  • No Glue or Heat: Unlike some other extension methods, Microlinks don’t require glue, tape, or heat, making them a gentler option for your hair.

  • Natural Look: Microlinks blend seamlessly with your natural hair, providing a natural, voluminous look.

  • Versatile Styling: You can style Microlinks just like your natural hair – curl, straighten, or even put it up in a high ponytail.


How Much Do People Charge for Microlinks?


The cost of Microlinks can vary depending on a few factors, including the length of the extensions and the stylist's experience. On average, you can expect to pay anywhere from $500 to $1,500 for a full installation. This price often includes the cost of the hair and the installation process. Remember, you're paying for quality and expertise, which is crucial for a flawless and long-lasting result.


How Much is a Full Head of Microlinks?


A full head of Microlinks typically requires about 150 to 200 strands, depending on the desired volume and length. The cost for the hair alone can range from $300 to $600, and the installation fee adds on top of that. While it may seem pricey, the results and longevity make it a worthwhile investment.


How Long Does It Take to Do Microlinks?


Patience is key when it comes to getting Microlinks. The installation process can take anywhere from 4 to 6 hours, depending on the amount of hair being installed and the complexity of the style. But trust me, the transformation is worth every minute! You’ll leave the salon with a gorgeous, natural-looking mane that can last for months.


What Are the Cons of Microlinks?


While Microlinks have many benefits, it’s important to be aware of some potential drawbacks:

  • Initial Cost: Microlinks can be more expensive upfront compared to other types of extensions. However, many of my clients find the investment worthwhile due to their longevity and natural look.

  • Time-Consuming Installation: As mentioned, the installation process can take several hours, which requires a time commitment.

  • Regular Maintenance: Microlinks do require regular maintenance appointments to keep them looking fresh and to avoid tangling or slipping.


Types of Microlink Install Methods


When it comes to Microlinks, there are a few different install methods to consider:


  • Single Weft Install Method: This method involves attaching a single weft of hair to your natural hair using the small, silicone-lined beads. It provides a natural look and is less bulky.

  • Double Weft Install Method: For those looking for extra volume, the double weft method attaches two wefts of hair simultaneously, providing a fuller, more voluminous look.

  • I-Tip Install Method: This method uses individual strands of hair, each tipped with keratin, which are then attached to small sections of your natural hair using the beads. It offers the most natural movement and flexibility.
