Clip-in hair extensions are a great option for anyone who wants a fun, temporary style. As the name suggests, they clip into your natural hair and are very easy to put in and remove. Clip-in hair extensions are also the least damaging type of hair extension as they attach easily to your natural hair without chemicals or heat. As a result, they are one of the most popular types of hair extensions.


Tape-in hair extensions are a more permanent type of extension. They are applied most often by a hairdresser as they need to be lined up to the root and applied with heat. These extensions attach to the hair by an adhesive. They are a bit more damaging and require more maintenance than clip-ins but often look more natural and can be left in longer.


Also known as a weave, this style of hair extension works best with thicker hair and must be applied by a very skilled hairdresser as the process is very technical. This method takes several hours and can cause a bit of strain on the scalp. It involves braiding the extensions into the hair, often in cornrows. This style is considered permanent and can last up to four months before they need to be replaced.


Microlink hair extensions refer to a wide range of hair extensions that are attached by a microbead or microtube. This is considered a very high-maintenance type of hair extension. Your natural hair needs to remain healthy for this style to work well. The benefit to this type of extension is that there is a wide range of textures available.

PDX Hair Extensions wants our clients to have the best experience possible with their hair extensions. You will leave our Portland hair salon looking and feeling your best.
