How To Apply: Strand by strand is a technique in which strands of human hair are applied at the root of your own hair via a tiny cylinder link. A strand has approximately 50-75 pre-keratin tipped length of hairs; 25 strands in a bundle. The link slides up the hair shaft to your scalp, slipped into it and compressed closed. Glue is NOT used. You can add color or highlights without damage from chemical services. They can be applied to hot fusion, cold fusion, micro links, shrinkies and Brazilian knots.
The Price: $300-$600 per bundle of 12″-16″ hair, which includes the labor to apply them. You will need a service every 2-3 months for approximately $200-$600 (roughly $4 per strand to service). The average extension is 3-5 bundles of hair.
