Nano ring hair extensions have similarities to micro ring hair extensions, but with one major difference: they are a lot smaller.
Nano means one billionth, and whilst a nano ring is not one billionth the size of other ring systems, it is up to 90% smaller than standard ring systems, with a nano ring measuring at just 2.5mm.
For that reason, nano ring hair extensions have been described as “revolutionary” and “incredible”, and they are one of the most popular hair extension methods currently available.
This is because it is virtually invisible and makes hair look completely natural and makes hair look and feel completely natural. Because the rings are much smaller than micro rings they are often far more comfortable for the client, and even if you are wearing your hair up in a ponytail they are almost impossible to detect. It is therefore not surprising that something so tiny has been described as “the biggest innovation in hair extensions for years!”
With this method you have to use specially designed nano-tip hair extensions rather than the i-tip hair extensions used in the micro rings method. This is because the i-tip hair extensions are too large for the nano rings. The tips differ in that the i-tip hair extension uses a keratin bonding agent to glue the hair together, whereas the nano tip hair extensions have a tiny wire loop embedded in the keratin which fits into the tiny nano ring.
As with the Micro Rings method, nano ring hair extensions do not use heat, glue or sewing. They are relatively quick to fit and to remove, the extensions (although not the nano rings) can be used again, and the rings are available in a wide range of different colours and shades to match the root of the client’s hair.
Not every client is suitable for nano rings as a method – clients with very fine hair or hair which is oily will find the nano rings do not stay in their hair very well. This would make them the ideal candidate for pre bonded fusion which is discussed below.
