Pre-bonded extensions are applied in two distinct ways: hot and cold fusion.
Hot fusion uses a single pre-bonded strand of hair that is one inch away the natural roots. It is done using keratin proteins bonding glue, and then fusing it with heating tools. Cold fusion uses ultrasonic heat instead of heat to bond the hair. It is similar in its application.

These micro ring extensions are very similar to pre-bonded extensions. They attach to the natural hair by using a tiny micro ring and a hook. The hook is used to pull hairs through the rings. Once the hair is pulled through, it’s pressed down using a set or pliers. Extra care is required for this type of extensions as the rings will tend to become looser after a time which causes the hair to fall out.
