Mini Locks have taken over the standard micro ring. There are no more big micro rings that don’t lie flat – these are much more discreet and comfortable to wear.

This technique involves taking a small section of the client’s natural hair. Using a threading tool, we apply a small, copper, round-shaped lock. We then fit inside the lock an extension strand which is positioned about an inch from the client’s scalp so no tension is caused. It is then clamped shut with pliers to secure the lock in place. When refits are due, the little lock is opened up and hair easily slides out. All shedded hair is combed out and a new lock is fitted reusing the same hair, which makes removal and maintenance easy and quick.

Mini Lock maintenance is carried out every three months.

With the Mini Locks, we do require at second refit (six months after first) all hair to be removed and retipped using keratin granules so that they can be worn again for another six months, as the mini tip can wear down after this period. Hair can be refitted again a few days later. Costs of retipping and refitting depend on the amount of strands you have fitted.

All hair is taken out row by row, shedded hair is brushed out and refitted using the same hair but a new lock. The same hair can be reused for up to a year with the correct maintenance and aftercare products.
