What Are Micro Ring and Micro Cylinder Hair Extensions

Micro ring hair extensions, also called micro cylinder hair extensions, do not use any chemicals, glues, heat, waxes, or threads to attach the hair extensions. This can be a good choice if you are concerned about damaging your with chemicals or heat.

So the micro ring hair extension technique works by pulling your hair through a miniature ring or cylinder, then adding the strands of the extension to the same ring and clamping or crimping the ring shut.

Here is a breakdown of the common tools used when applying micro cylinder hair extensions -- this will help to explain how the method works.

Micro Ring / Micro Cylinder Extension Tools:

Hair Templates: these are a flat disc that has a little hole through it, this helps to keep the sectioned off piece of hair that is being used separate from the other hairs. It just makes it easier for the hair to be isolated when adding extensions to them.

Also, if you were using fusion or glue hair extension methods, then these little babies protect the scalp from the heat. A hair template is used for a lot of different types of hair extensions techniques, such as the cold fusion hair extension technique.

Not all hair stylists use hair templates so don't be alarmed if yours doesn't - it probably means that they have been doing hair extensions for a while and don't need to use it anymore.

Hair Puller / Needle Puller: this tool is used to pull your natural hair through the ring / cylinder. The puller has a little hook at the end to take a section of hair and pull just that section through the ring. The pullers can come in different sizes depending on the sizes of the rings used.

If you are using different sized rings, then a different sized hair puller would be appropriate.

Micro Rings / Micro Cylinders / Tubes / Links: these come in different sizes and colors. There are a variety of different colors available to match your natural hair. Also, if applied and removed properly, the rings/cylinders can be re-used.

Pliers: These are used to close the rings. Pliers are also used for the removal process, they "unflatten" the clamped rings which causes them to bounce back to their original open shape, then the ring and hair extensions are slowly slid off of your hair.

Ring / Cylinder Removal Tool: this is a double pronged tool that is used if the rings or cylinders become damaged and regular pliers won't work with removal.

How long do micro hair extensions last?
Micro hair extensions can last up to 3-5 months - but it really depends on how fast your hair grows. If your hair grows relatively slow, then the extensions will last longer.

How long does my hair have to be to get micro-ring hair extensions?
For most hair extensions methods, your hair should be at least 3-5 inches. With micro ring, you could probably get away with three inches of natural hair - just enough to cover up the rings.

What are tubes and links, are they the same as rings?
Kind of. Tubes, links, rings, and cylinders all use the same method described above, but they may be different lengths, sizes, widths, etc... There are a lot of manufacturers that sell their "brand" of rings and so they choose to call them by other names to differentiate them from competitors.
