Welcome to “The Link Up!”
Thank you for reaching out to gain more information on the various types of MICROLINKS Installations we have to offer. Before we start, here is some basic information about me. I’m located in Miami and my name is Yaya.
What are Microlinks?
Microlinks are a type of hair extensions in which the extension is secured to the strands of hair using a small, silicone lined bead. This luxurious hair extension installation can last 10 – 12 weeks, depending on proper care and maintenance. Microlinks are appropriate for all hair textures with client’s who have a hair length of at least 3-5 inches (shoulder length). It is ideal that both client’s hair texture matches the extensions texture for a flawless installation.
What are Tape-Ins?
Tape-Ins are the new innovated extensions. They are the perfect way to add luxurious volume and length to your natural hair without damage. It is a painless, non-damaging, and highly versatile. The extensions are 1-1.5” of sections go hair that are pre-taped using adhesive weft tape to your hair that are lightweight and breathable without pulling at your natural hair strains. This luxurious hair extension installation can last 8-10 weeks, depending on proper care and hair maintenance. Tape-Ins are appropriate for all hair textures with client’s who have a hair length of at least 3-5 inches (shoulder length). It is ideal that both client’s hair texture matches the extensions texture for a flawless installation.
Tape-In Installation – perfect for clients with thin to medium hair. The installation is done with no braids and is tension free. Using adhesive weft, the hair strains are “sandwich” between two 1-1.5” pieces of hair extensions, causing little to no tension on the natural strains of the client’s hair. It uses specialized tape-in extensions and requires at least 80- 100 tape-ins for a full install. This technique last up to 2 months with proper care and tightening required every 4-6 weeks. This installation takes about 2-3 hours.

Prior to Installation –
Before coming for your installation, it is important that you get a fresh wash and silk press no oil. Please do not apply any types of oils to your hair to avoid hair weighing down and overall compromising the outcome of your installation. If you are natural and will be installing hair extensions that are curly to match your hair in its natural state, please come with your hair freshly washed, detangled, sectioned into 6 big twist, and no products applied to your hair.

Providing Your Own Bundles?
For extensions I prefer Brazilian, Indian, Peruvian, etc. this type of hair that can be washed & styled like natural hair. The longer the extensions the more rows and bundles that will be needed. Anything past 18" will require 3bundles of hair.
**Disclaimer** please do not purchase store bought hair or any bundles that have gold or silver ribbons wrapped around the bundles. This is not good hair and will be too thin for this luxurious installment.
I provide the service of Custom Color Extensions. Hair must be colored prior to installation. I will need 2-3 days to color, treat, and dry the extensions prior to your appointment. Which is provided by Shannon for coloring.
You MUST come in every 4-6 weeks for tightening of your Microlinks. You CANNOT perm your hair with Microlinks Installation, however it can be washed, treated, and wrapped).
