Clip on hair extensions are very easy to apply. Clips are regular tip top clip or press clip. They get firmly attached to your hair. There are usually sets of hair extensions. One set may have 2 or three clips. You can either place all sets in one single horizontal line just below the vertex. Or you can place sets of your hair extensions in a vertical position just below one another, starting from the area where you are comfortable. You can also place 2 sets on the temples and one or two sets for length from the nape of the neck. It depends on where you are aiming for a length.
Micro ring hair extensions are attached to the base of hair on the scalp. Usually it is applied to the hair, 1 inch above the scalp. It requires a professional hand to get it done perfectly. As the hairs grow, the hair extensions drip down. Then after around 60-90 days again you have to fix these by placing it at the right place.

Extensions are occasional products or a festive product, whenever you want to look good you can go for extensions.

Hair Extensions should be worn by those who have thin / short hair at the back of their scalp. Often clients get confused and feel that Hair Extensions are meant for the hair thinning on the crown area. But it is totally wrong. For thinning on crown area, one has to use a hair system or a hair patch and for hair thinning on the back side of the scalp, one must wear Hair Extensions. Since there is very limited hand knotted work done in Hair Extensions, it is usually much cheaper compared to hand made Hair Replacement Systems, Hair Patches or Hair Wigs.
The short answer is that Human Hair and Synthetic Hair extensions vary on these main counts – degree of customization you can do, durability, look and feel and lastly hygiene. Human Hair Extensions can offer a very high degree of customization are more durable, feel just like your own hair and can be washed just like our own hair thus making them very hygienic. However what Synthetic Extensions lack on these fronts, they make up for it in the cost savings! Synthetic Hair Extensions cost almost 1/5th that of Human Hair Extensions and thus are preferred by many when the usage is going to be minimal.
Permanent hair extensions are those, which need to be attached to our natural hair, near to the scalp permanently by a medical grade glue and can be removed only by a professional hair stylist. However, our hair grows at a rate of ~1cm per month and these extensions move further away from the scalp, so these need to be re-attached by a specialist hair stylist after every 2 months or so. Hence even the so-called permanent hair extensions are only ‘semi-permanent’ in the real sense.
At Papillon Hair World, we usually prefer to use clip on method of fixing hair extensions as these work the best in Indian climate.
The hair used in Papillon’s ‘Human Hair Extensions’ is collected from a single donor, from top to the tip of the hair and usually is sourced from the temple hair. There are many sources of Human Hair such as Hair from Parlors, Comb hair, and Temple hair and then there are fakes such as synthetic fibers or animal fibers. We usually use the virgin / remy temple hair source as this hair is the most tangle free, can be customized for natural look, colour and various styling possibilities. For a normal person it is very difficult to judge the source of the hair, but do not hesitate in asking the supplier for a detailed explanation!
Hair Bundles are nothing but one earlier stage of Hair Extensions. When we manufacture Hair Extensions, first we have to source and process Bulk Hair.

And lastly from these Machine Wefts / Weave Hair / Hair Bundles we manufacture Hair Extensions but cutting and processing it further and adding the fixing accessories such as clips, glue rings, tapes etc.
