Micro Loop Hair Extensions offer fast and simple use to users. The users pull their hair through a metal ring which is tightly attached to the users’ hair.  No heat or chemical material occurs during this process.  And it’s quite suitable for those people who hope to maintain the hair extensions for longer.  

The positive aspects:

  1. The plastic loops and rings are already tied up to each bundle of hair. There’s no need to use other tools for hair extensions except for the pliers.   
  2. The operation of Micro Loop Hair Extension is faster than Micro Ring Hair Extensions. Because the rings are already clamped to the hair in advance and there is no extra time to spend on this work.
  3. The Micro Loop Hair Extensions are easier to use so it’s highly preferred by people who are not good at attaching hair extensions.
  4. The Micro Loop Hair Extensions are well attached with rings so no extra buying on each item any more.

The negative aspects:

  1. This hair extensions method is easy to learn by fresh users but it’s too easy and low level for professionals. 
  2. This hair extension is not easy to maintain as the rings are blended on the strand stably and can’t be replaced easily. You need to push the rings back up the user’s hair for daily maintenance. The safest way to maintain the ring is to replace it with a new one and re-install it.
  3. Since the rings are fused to the hair you can’t feel the ring as even as the Micro Ring Hair Extensions. If the users have thin hair, then Micro Loop Hair Extension is not recommendable as it tends to fall over and can’t be covered.

Micro Ring Hair Extensions also provide an easy way to use for hair extensions without using heat or chemicals. A metal pulling loop is applied to bind up the clients’ hair with small Micro Rings (also called Micro Links/Micro Beads). When the ring is attached to the client's hair, the strand of hair is put through the ring and clamped flat; the type of hair extension method is known as Stick Tip/I-Tip Hair Extensions.

The positive aspects:

  1. This hair extensions method is generally approved by the well-trained technicians for its technical and professionalism.
  2. The rings attached to the hair appear flatter than the Micro Loop Hair Extension as it’s not blended to the strands of hair. At the same time the rings don’t fall over easily with their flatness.
  3. Buying the rings individually for the hair extensions can help the clients to choose the expected ring color fixed to his natural hair color. Customized rings are preferred for people with a root stretch or ombre hair, as the rings won’t slip from the hair easily.
  4. Different sizes and colors of Micro Ring hair extensions are attainable for buying in association with stick tip hair. This means the rings can be selected specifically for the client to be as discreet as possible.
  5. Since the rings are not blended to the strand of hair, the hair can be re-used many times with new rings. It’s highly recommended to people who hope to maintain the hair extensions for longer period.

The negative aspects:

  1. This method takes more time for a user to put on. A Micro Ring for each strand of hair must be threaded separately by hand. This consumes more time than the Micro Loop extensions, especially when your clients have thick hair.
  2. All tools and hair must be bought individually. It is advised to consult your hair professional so that you can determine the varieties of rings and strands in advance to avoid wasting your hair/rings during setting your hair extensions.
  3. This hair extension is a little more expensive, but can be re-used completely. It can be of great benefit for you and your client to select this method for long-term use.
  4. We hope this article can bring you some knowledge about the differences between Micro Loop and Micro Ring Hair Extensions, and also the positive and negative sides of each method.
  5. Each user has his own taste for the types of hair extensions. Just think about which method is more suitable for you before making an order. Or you can ask your friends to try them on beforehand and consult them for more ideas in selection of the methods.
