Marquesa Hair Extension Techniques

Keratin Based Hot Fusion. Ex: U-tip, Flat Tip, V -Tip

These methods of hair extensions are arguably the best, Marquesa hair uses Italian keratin, which is a high-quality Keratin -based adhesive.  This type of keratin has  a low melting point so a professional grade adhesive is a must for us. These adhesives can withstand both heat and chemical treatments. The adhesive remover that is used to remove the hair extensions dries the bonding agent to a powdery substance (rather than dissolving it through messy oil and heat). Our Hot Fusion Extensions are packaged in 40 strands per Package, with an approximate weight of .5g, .8g or 1g. Our ready to use, in stock is .8g for fast delivery.

Keratin Bond Cold Fusion. Ex: U tip, Flat Tip, V tip


The cold fusion procedure is a new technology that utilizes ultrasound waves rather than heat, like hot fusion, to bond each extension to existing hair. The absence of heat allows us to bond extensions closer to the scalp, which creates a more invisible bond. Cold Fusion is also the preferred method when bonding extensions to colored or chemically treated hair because it is so gentle.

Methods Similarities

The strand by strand hair extensions method is the method of choice for most clients and stylist. U tip, V tip And Flat tip are methods which require Cold Fusion or a Hot fusion tool to bond the Keratin to the hair. The only different is how the bonding area looks like after the application.  Either looks round or flat. This method of attachment Not only is it the most natural of all the extensions, it lasts three to six months. Individual strands of hair are applied to your own hair and are held with a special protein bond, which allows the hair to move just like your own.

The hair extensions  can be made of a keratin-based product or other natural-based products that can be very similar to the material that makes up human hair and nails and is considered to be non-damaging to your own hair. Marques Hair extensions  pre-bonded hair can be cut to custom fit the thickness of each individual’s hair strands.

The application time depends on the amount of hair being added to the clients hair, whether for Volume of length.  All Fusion bonding methods of application will require an appointment, it can be anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. For a full head of hair,  it can take 3 to 8 hours.

Marquesa hair extensions themselves should last anywhere from 3 to 6 months depending on proper maintenance. Regular visits for check-ups on your new investment should be from 4 to 6-week intervals.

Seamless Skin Weft

The I tip, Nano Ring And Wefts Techniques is another method of Cold Fusion.  The application of Cold fusion is also known as micro link used with the I tip, the Nano Tip, used with nano copper or metal rings and the wefts use by weaving method of attaching  hair extension. I Tip is another strand method that is applied by inserting a strand of hair through a metal tube, called Micro rings.  The wefts could be applied by using micro rings, sewing or clipping onto the hair.  the Installation of  Tape Hair extensions is another cold fusion techniques since it does not require heat.  The tape wefts start out with thin clear polyurethane panels that get attached to Remy human hair and medical grade hair extension tape. It starts with our strong (yet thin and nearly invisible) polyurethane panels that are thermo setting polymers.  That means the panels will not get melted even with high heat use (think blow drying your tape in extensions). Polyurethane combines the best properties of rubber and plastic, which makes the tape in extensions safe and flexible. This allows the tape extensions to bend and conform to the shape of your head.

Cold fusion hair extensions were created to be a gentle alternative than keratin hot fusion hair extensions. Cold fusion hair extensions do not use heat to apply the hair extensions to your hair. This is a no heat hair extensions method that bond  hair via an ultrasound applicator or a plier tool. It is a more updated extensions method that was created to be a lot gentler on your natural hair than hot fusion.

Machine weft hair extensions are very popular as they quick and the tracks are easy to install / remove which makes them quiet cost effective compared to single strand methods. You have the choice of easily mix colours to achieve a highlighted look to match your natural hair. Marquesa machine wefts can be installed in several ways, but most commonly by sewing the hair weft into a braided track of your own natural hair. A full head of tracks, which is generally 3-4 rows will take approximately one hour to do. And with this method of attaching hair extensions, they hair will not need to be retightened for 6-12 weeks, depending on the growth of your hair.

Marquesa hair wefts are 1.6 meters wide and weigh 100 grams per pack. We have 63 different hair colours to choose from and stock the most popular length which is 20 inch (51cms).

A weft you will need tiny braids to hold hair extensions against the scalp, like cornrows, except these braids are hidden. A concern with this method is that it applies tension and uneven weight to the natural hair where attached, especially when washing the hair or when wet from swimming or any other activities. This can not only loosen the weave but it can tug on your natural hair and break it. It can also be difficult to dry the hair beneath the braids and some people will avoid washing their hair as often. Irritant reactions and folliculitis may result depending on your scalp sensitivity.

Marquesa hand tied machine wefts are absolutely beautiful and shiny. Only the most luxurious hair is chosen, 100% Virgin Remy hair and highest grade, fine hair, soft texture with the best durability ever worn.  Marquesa has to offer Four different textures; Straight, Big wave, Body wave and Deep wave, our Lengths vary from 16, 18, 20 and each pack contains 1 set=100gm=4pcs per set. Our weft of hair weighs approximately 100 grams.

Only Remy virgin hair has been used to make the wefts. NO thin ends. Our hair is all  DOUBLE drawn hair, the shorter hairs are removed by hand, leaving the hairs all one length . The recommended purchase is 2-3 bundles of hair for a full head application, but for extra volume, you will need 3 or more packs of hair.



The extensions used for this method of application has a latex adhesive as a bonding agent.  This adhesive or glue is meant to be glued to your own hair for short terms use. Because this method is fast, it is also inexpensive. However, to remove extensions, oil and heat must be used to dissolve the bonding agent, which messy and time consuming. If not removed with care the latex can pull your own hair or break it.  The ultimate hair care must be applied.

Nano Rings:

Nano  hair extensions are another brilliant strand by strand, cold fusion hair extension method. They are attached with tiny rings that come in several colours for a close match to the root hair shade.  They are available in different colors to closely match your own hair.  The smallest nano ring available is 2.5mm and can ONLY be used with nano tips hair extensions. The nano rings are made of metal and are NOT  lined with silicone since it is very small. This method of extensions is a great way of allowing your natural hair to grow out whilst they are in. This is a great method that doesn’t use any heat or any glue, they are a good alternative to those who do not wish to have fusion bonded hair extensions.

I tip (microrings)


This method of hair extensions will add length and fullness to your own hair. Our 100% Remy Virgin  human hair is attached to existing hair. There are several methods of doing this, and I-Tip is Marquesa’s  beaded method of hair extensions. Small bundles of hair, single strands of hair are attached to hair near the roots with a small bead called microrings.  Marquesa’s rings are of the finest professional quality rings. They have smooth rounded edges and silicone lined, for more stability and grip, a delight to use. Our most popular seller, Marquesa Silicone Copper Rings are specially produced to fit various I tip sizes and they come in different colors.

Each pack of I-Tip hair contains 25 strands, 50 strands or 100 strands of hair. Each of these strands has a small, shoestring-like tip that holds all the individual hairs together. A strand is made of 1.0 gram of hair. A full head of I-Tip hair is about 5 to 9 packs of hair depending on whick amount you buy . This means you could have 100 – 180 strands of I-Tip hair or more for a full head installation.  Our hair is always Double Drawn.

What makes I-Tip unique are the beads. The beads used for I-Tip extensions are very small. They are the perfect size to hold both the natural hair and the tip of the hair extension. There are a few different kinds of beads, but they are all small and soft enough to be crimped down to hold the hair and the hair extension in place.

The bead is threaded onto a small section of hair near the client’s scalp. The tip of the hair extension strand is placed into the bead and a special hair extension tool is used to crimp and flatten the bead so it stays in place.  Not all micro rings are the same as far as size.  You must know how much hair has been attached to the I tip by the manufacturer, in order to choose the proper size.  The following are Marquesa hair micro ring sizes;
