Hair Extension Types

Babe extensions are attached without the need for glue, clips, or beads for a look that is seamless to the touch and undetectable in your hair once installed.  We use a variety of application methods at iLLustria based on individual client needs and preferences.

Every strand of your hair will be enhanced with the 360 degree movement of I-Tip Extensions. Your hair will be transformed  with amazing volume, length, and versatility.  You can wear it up or down and no one will know your extensions are not actually your real hair.  
I-Tip installation is a snap!  Microbeads are clamped to securely hold each hair extension strand in place. That means your hair can be long and full without the worry of slippage. This amazing method has absolutely no chemicals, no glue, and no heat so there is no harm to your hair.

 fusion hair extensions


Fusion/Keratin Bond Method
The Fusion method for attaching extensions is one of the most well-known methods.   The comfortably natural feel of extensions that have been applied with fusion is refreshing.

This tried-and-true technique involves connecting extensions to hair with keratin bonds. Keratin is the same protein that your hair is made of.   Each extension strand comes pre-tipped, with the keratin bond ready to go. Each strand is individually attached for a 360 degree movement for ultimate styling potential.

– Application time: 2 to 3 hours
– May be reused up to 3 times
– Lasts 2 to 4 months with proper care
