Glue in hair extensions instruction



Place your index fingers on either side of the client's head, just above the cheekbones, and run them back through the hair horizontally until they meet.
Clip the hair up above your fingers to create two sections, one consisting of roughly one third of the client's hair, on top of her head, and the other two thirds loose.
Pinch one of the hair extension strands between the thumb and index finger of one hand roughly half an inch from the top.
Apply hot glue to the top of the strand with the glue applicator, using your other hand. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for heating and using the glue to avoid injury. Ensure that all the individual hairs in the strand have been coated with the glue at the top, then put the glue applicator safely to one side.
Section off a small area of hair from the left side of the free hair, near the parting. Lift the section away from the rest of the hair with the point of the rat-tail comb. Hold it with your free hand. It should be roughly the same size as the extension strand.
Apply the glued end of the extension to the strand of hair an inch from the roots.
Hold both strands of hair together near the glue with one hand. Use your thumb and forefingers from the other to roll the glue around the natural hair and hair extensions and bond them together. Ensure the glue forms a complete seal around both strands of hair.
Repeat the process. Apply the glue-in extensions at regular intervals along the free-hair section parting to achieve the desired effect.

How to make your hair extensions look natural

Step 1 When braiding your extension in, it is recommended that you choose from one of the following styles. A tree braid, braid weave or French braid. It is generally recommended that you pick the one which you are most comfortable with as this will lead to best results; especially if it is your first time.
Step 2 Pull your hair back into a pony tail and secure it using a clip. Ensure that your hair is tight, however not too tight as you will need to keep it back for some time while you apply the clip in hair extensions.
Step 3 Now you need to lift sections of hair from underneath the ponytail. Please note that each layer that you lift should be around the length of your hand in width. Now proceed to place the weft right underneath it. Certain stylists recommend you should always place parallel sections above each weft; however that is a judgment call that you can make through looking at samples.
Step 4 This step is called blending and refers to the process of making your hair and the extensions look like they belong together. One way you can do this is to curl your hair and the extensions. Should you decide to either curl or straighten your hair using hot curlers then you should only do this on your natural hair, and then use a curling brush to interweave the synthetic hair into it.
Step 5 Place a hair extension into the bottom of the ponytail to finish. This should go between the underside of the ponytail and just below where the synthetic hair starts. You should then fluff out the hair with your fingers until it sits naturally.

Wigs and Hairpieces

A wig refers to a head of hair processed and designed by skilled hair technicians so as to provide an artificial crowning glory for people. It may be made out of real human hair, horse hair, buffalo hair, wool, animal fur, feather, and/or other synthetic materials.
Who uses wigs?
Unlike other hair replacement options, wearing wigs is not only a choice for those people who are simply going bald because of old age, those who have pattern baldness (common for men), and people who are losing their hair because of medical treatments (ex. Chemotherapy). Rather, wigs have become a popular option for people who simply want to create a fashion statement or be in style.
As observed nowadays, wigs are often used by models for fashion shows: theater actors and actresses for their stage performances: and Hollywood stars for various pictorials, public appearances and movie performances. Indeed, wigs have become significant components of the fashion industry in most fashion-and-style oriented countries.

Assembling the Chainmail Necklace

Measure your neck to determine the necklace length you require. Open and close several jump rings and place them in their respective piles. Take four closed and open one jump ring to begin the chainmail pattern. Thread the four closed jump rings onto one open ring. Close the open ring. Hold the piece above eye level with the four closed rings dangling at the bottom so you can see how the pattern is taking shape. Arrange the rings -- in your hands or on the table -- so there is one ring in the center flanked by two rings on either side.
Take two closed rings and one open ring from those you prepared and set aside. Weave the open ring completely through the two closed rings on one side of your initial ring set. Thread the two closed rings through the open ring. Close the open ring. Hold the whole set above eye level to view the two closed jump rings dangling at the bottom of the set to see how the pattern is progressing. Attach a short length of wire at the other end of the ring set to mark the beginning of your chainmail pattern.
Continue the chainmail pattern using two closed rings threaded through one open ring, then closing the open ring, until the chainmail is the right length for your necklace. Attach a jump ring to both ends of the necklace. Attach a clasp closure to finish the necklace.

Necessary Gauge of Jewelry Wire

16-Gauge-16-gauge is a 1.3 mm diameter jewelry wire. It is a thick, sturdy wire that works well for any jewelry piece requiring some strength to hold weight. Use 16-gauge jewelry wire to create thick jump rings and chain mail. Eye pins are created with 16-gauge wire, however, the pins only fit into large-holed beads.
20-Gauge-20-gauge is an 0.8 mm diameter jewelry wire. It is the most versatile wire for making delicate findings, such as jump rings, eye pins, head pins and split rings. 20-gauge is the most common size for making ear wires for earrings. This mid-size, delicate wire fits into most bead holes.
24-Gauge-24-gauge wire is a 0.5 mm diameter jewelry wire. This very thin, delicate wire is used for wire-wrapping necklaces and bracelets. The thin wire wraps well to create semi-precious stone pendants. It is also used for making wire-wrapped head and eye pins. This wire fits through almost any bead hole.
