What is the difference between Halos, Hand-Tied, and Hidden Bead Extensions?
Halo Extensions are temporary extensions worn when desired. They are no maintenance and applied on at home. Great for special occasions and more budget friendly.
Hand-Tied and Hidden Bead are applied and maintained at the salon. They are permanent until taken out. Great for people wanting to wake up everyday with extensions already in!
Hidden Bead is also for the person who wears their hair up often! Hair is applied on both sides of the bead to ensure the perfect pony.
