Microchet Hair Extensions


You will discover that the Microchet method is safe, easy to care for, and the most natural moving hair attachment system available.


Microchet is not attached with any of the modalities associated with most other strand by strand methods.  There is no fusion and no metal tubes. NO Heat – NO Chemicals

The Microchet Hair Extension system does NOT require heat nor chemicals for attachment nor strong solvents for removal. You can therefore rest easy as the possibility for damage to your hair or scalp from heat and/or chemicals from this process is totally eliminated.


An exclusively innovative, durable technique for producing beautiful long hair by attaching only fine, high quality human hair, strand-by-strand, to your existing hair using special thread (either the same color as the hair or invisible thread) and a crochet hook. This special process produces a virtually undetectable attachment so that the new hair appears to be growing right out of your own scalp. This process is great for adding length, volume or just to add a touch of color or highlights; extremely lightweight so there is no pulling or stress on your scalp; and very easily removed, by a professional, by simply cutting the attachment string — so there is extremely little-to-NO DAMAGE to your own hair. It is extremely comfortable, and because this new hair moves independently of your own hair, it is more natural looking than most other methods. There is very little shedding, color stays true, and the hair stays soft and touchable. This is the most gentle technique available today.

Hair growth requires that all types of extensions be removed and replaced about every three months, an extremely easy procedure in the Microchet system. Cutting, coloring and perming of extensions or natural hair are priced separately and added to the final fee.

A Very Gentle Attachment:
The Microchet hair extensions look and feel like your own natural hair after the first day or two as they are so lightweight you won’t even know you’re wearing them. They have an extremely natural look about them, are easy to wash and style, and can even be colored and permed to provide a variety of styles and moods.


Fashion and Beauty:
Microchet Hair Extensions can give you longer, thicker, fuller, sexier hair. Looking your best helps you feel good about yourself. Feeling good about yourself promotes feelings of confidence and self-assuredness. Confidence and self-assuredness lead to success in whatever you are undertaking, something everybody wants and strives for. And for those in the public eye, it is a must.

From time-to-time, special events like weddings, proms, gala events of one sort or another arise where you want to look extra-special for that extra-special occasion. This would be a very good time to try out the Microchet Hair Extensions. Its ease of application and reputation for not causing undo damage goes a long way toward making you feel at ease and confident that all will be well with this procedure and to allay the fears of the “what if’s”.
As the cuticles in our cuticle hair are all aligned in the same direction, hair tangles and matts are no longer a problem which makes caring for your hair a lot easier.

Problem Areas, Extra-Fine Hair or Even Growing-in Hair Following Chemo:
If you are suffering from Alopecia or Tricotillomania (picking at your hair and pulling it out by the roots); recovering from chemo or other medically-caused hair loss; fine or thinning hair; a bad cut that you need to grow out; or are looking for a transformation from dark winter color to summer blond without damage … This is the way to go for instant and beautiful results.

The gentle attachments and the light weight work together to make it possible to restore hair in the most sensitive and difficult areas such as on the top of the head, temples, mid-scalp, and forehead (for bangs) or on extra-fine or extra-short hair. Very thin or lost hair need no longer be an area of embarrassment for either men or women.

Q & A:

“Well, Niki,” you say, “I really like the idea of so little or no damage to my own hair, but … strand-by-strand? That sounds like a lot of time in the chair. How long would it actually take you to do this for me?”
Hm-m-m. That’s a toughy because there are no one-size-fits-all answers for how long these sessions can take. It really depends on what we’re starting with and where we want to end up. For example, it can take anywhere from one hour to add highlights or fix a botched haircut to maybe up to 3 – 4 hours depending on what you’re looking to do. This can take from 1/2 bundle to 2 or 3 bundles of hair … again, depending on the projected end result.

This is why a consultation is always recommended.

Unfortunately, there are no hard and fast rules with this. Most questions can only be answered in the consultation. I need to see the hair … Where we’re starting from and where the projected end result is.

It’s impossible to put a dollar value on the confidence and self-assuredness that looking your best will provide for you. But it’s a sure bet that people tend to perform better and experience more success when they’re concentrating on what they’re doing; not worrying about how they look. The attachments are so light that the added volume seems like your own natural hair; moves like your natural hair; and can be styled just like your natural hair. In other words, you may even forget this extra hair is an add-on because it even feels like your natural hair. A very confident feeling. And the possibility of damage to your own hair is so minimal with the Microchet attachment method when applied by an experienced, certified practitioner. This alone should be enough to calm your fears about taking the plunge and is worth your weight in gold for you to know you won’t end up worse off than when you began!

However, as with any hair enhancement product, there is a possibility of damage due to misuse or improper care by the client. Proper care and maintenance will be fully explained at time of consult, but client must assume all responsibility in this area.



To maintain your striking new Microchet tresses, proper home care is essential.

Following simple guidelines between salon visits will ensure long lasting beauty and a natural look and feel. It is important to follow up with a maintenance consultation after placement. During this visit your extensions specialist will teach you how to care for your new hair. Use only products recommended by your extension specialist as others may cause damage.

5 “Musts” for Home Hair Extension Care

  1. Be gentle with your new hair. This is key.
  2. When washing your hair, do not scrub it excessively. A gentle shampooing and rinse is all that is needed.
  3. After swimming, immediately wash out chlorine water and follow up with a good conditioner.
  4. Avoid tangles and tugging. After washing or swimming, dry your hair thoroughly and comb it gently from scalp to ends with a wide-tooth comb or pick before going to bed.
  5. To prevent damaging your new hair, always check with your professional salon hair extensions specialist before coloring, perming, or applying any other types of chemicals.

Taking special care of your new hair will ensure longevity and beauty. For additional information on caring for your new extensions view the Hair Extension Guide.

Because of hair growth, all extensions need to be re-done from time to time (usually between 2 and 3 months).
