Microchet -- the kinder, gentler hair extensions
extensions that won't damage your own hair
all heard the horror stories about extensions-from-hell that pull out
clumps of hair by their roots within 3-4 weeks after being put on;
or the extensions that are put on with glue that leave sticky
residues on your scalp (especially the latex-based ones); and the
ones that cause red bumps and itchy patches because their poor
quality causes allergic reactions. Or maybe you've even experienced
some of these catastrophes yourself. Not fun, right? That's when
you end up saying, "I've just been to the worst hairdressers
ever!" ... and it just might not be their fault.
now you don't have to worry about that any more.
very gentle thread technique for applying extensions was first
introduced in Asia some time ago and has proved itself so successful
there that its developer, Mr. Charles Oh, has recently introduced it
to the American market in California. It is also gaining ground in
Hollywood, San Diego, St. Louis, Chicago, and now New York. And I'm
very excited about this superior hair extension method for my

So, what's so different about
the Microchet method AND why should I care?
Let me answer the last question first: because, quite
frankly, we believe that when you examine all the attachment methods
on the market today, you will discover that the Microchet method is
the safest, easiest, and most natural looking hair attachment system

Clip-ins – A: Clips. P: Usually doesn't look natural
No. The Microchet method is none
of the above.
Gone Are the Days of Fusions,
Braids, and Clips
What Microchet IS is 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 quick and easy; great for adding length, volume or just to add a
touch of color or highlites; extremely lightweight so there is no
pulling or stress on your natural roots; and very easily removed by
simply cutting the attachment string — so there is
extremely little-to-NO DAMAGE to your own hair as compared
to the other currently used methods of extensions attachment that
use heat and glue; it's more comfortable than methods using braids
or cylinders (which use metal attachments that can break your hair);
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. And once removed, about 40% of
this hair may be re-usable two more times. This saves you money
because you won't have to buy all new hair every time we do it.
Cutting, coloring and perming of extensions or natural hair are priced separately and added to the final fee.
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
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
SO, WHO COULD BENEFIT FROM THIS PROCEDURE?
What's it good for?
Fashion and Beauty
Microchet Hair Extensions can give you longer,
thicker, fuller, sexier hair with a minimum of fuss, bother, and
breakage to your natural growth. 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
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
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.
Perfect for Problem Areas
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
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. And as it happens, this is my
area of specialization. Having overcome my own hair loss due to a
medical problem (not cancer), I feel a special bond with others who
are struggling in this area.
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
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
highlites 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.
So, let's RE-CAP what the Microchet Hair Extension system has going for it and see what it can do for you:
Quality Natural Russian, Indian, or European Human Hair
Hand tied. Remy hair ... cuticle going in one direction to reduce tangling and matting. Re-usable. Can be colored and permed. Adds volume, length, or highlights. Stays soft and touchable.
Heat – No Chemicals = No Damage and No Allergic Reactions from these irritants (with the possible exception of the adhesive for Hollywood Top, a special product for bald spots. However, it requires only a tiny amount of medical quality adhesive so the possibility of allergic reactions here should be minimal.)
- Extremely Gentle Attachments
Small attachment point. Uses thread. Swings independently of your natural hair so it looks more like your own real hair. Lasts about three months. Quickly applied; easily removed. Easy care. No heat. No bonding. No metal cylinders. Very comfortable to wear.
- Perfect for special circumstances

Seems to me that this Microchet system
has quite a lot going for it!
Get all the glances you deserve!
Cut, Colored, and Styled
but before styling
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 as to be almost non-existent. 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. If you have me do your extensions, it is understood that you are in agreement with these statements whether they have been printed and signed or not.
While there is no charge for the salon consultation, if you decide to have the extensions, a non-refundable deposit of $500 would allow for ordering hair and holding your spot.

a Full Head of Fullness: starting at $1200 (+/-

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