Micro Ring Hair Extensions Pros and Cons

Micro Ring Hair Extensions use a tiny copper ring which is clamped flat in order to combine the extensions to your hair. They are an extremely popular method. But you may be wondering, are Micro Ring Hair Extensions worth it?

Our Micro Ring Hair Extensions are bonded with our specially developed keratin polymer. This enables us to compact the bonds into a tiny stick tip suitable for the smallest micro ring application. This formula means the bond remains durable and flexible, springing back to shape after the removal so they can be used for several applications. The bond will not break down, flatten or shed after repeat applications.  They remain one of our best sellers for this reason.  Micro ring hair extensions are also one of the safest application methods on the market.

Favourite amongst stylists and salons worldwide, it is easy to see why they are such a popular choice of method. From the most experienced hair extensions fan to newbies they are one of our best selling methods.

Micro Ring Hair Extensions Advantages

Micro Ring Hair Extensions are safe.

Although fitting methods are now generally the safest they have ever been, we understand some individuals may still be nervous about hair extensions. Micro Ring Hair Extensions are entirely safe to fit and remove because they require no heat or glue for application. In fact, most of our own salon clients report that their hair has improved since their fitting.


Each tiny strand is designed to mimic the colour of the wearer’s root, blending seamlessly with the client’s hair. Our hair extension bonds and micro rings are designed to be as small as possible allowing the hair to be worn in a variety of styles including updos and ponytails. Applied with a thin copper ring squeezed almost flat that will remain securely hidden in place in the client’s hair. Unlike other methods such as weaves or clip in hair extensions which are more challenging to hide. Whereas rings are only a few millimeters wide, so they bend and move against the client’s head, giving a more natural appearance when being tied up or pulled back.


Unlike other hair extension brands, Secret Hair can be used over and over again with no messy re-bonding or re-taping. Our unique flexible tip ensures that the pre-bonded hair extension tip springs back into shape when removed from the micro rings. The result is a hair extension bond that is easier to reinsert into the copper micro ring during maintenance appointments.


Comprised of individual strands, rather than wide wefts, so several shades can be mixed to create a highlighted or lowlighted effect. The colour intensity can be mixed up or down by the appropriate placement of the different strand shades. You can transform your hair without the need to dye beforehand making them suitable for all hair types and colours.

Can Be Used to Fill Out Clients’ Own Hair

If you have shorter sides or thin hair framing the face – perhaps due to over straightening or growing out a previous style. Micro ring hair extensions can be used to thicken out these sections. A full head application is not always necessary.


This method will lay flat when applied correctly making them extremely comfortable to wear throughout the day and while sleeping. After the initial fitting, they feel just like your own hair. A great alternative for those who have previously worn Clip In Hair Extensions or Weft Hair Extensions, that are often perceived as heavy or bulky.

Disadvantages of Micro Ring Hair Extensions

Take Time to Apply

Micro ring hair extensions come in 0.8-1g strands and around 200 strands may need to be applied depending on thickness required. This means appointments can be lengthier than other methods, however, the more natural movement and appearance will make it worthwhile

More Expensive

Micro ring hair extensions are applied strand by strand and will, therefore, take the stylist longer in application. This is reflected in the fitting price to the client. Micro ring hair extensions also cost more to produce. As each extension strand is formed by hand it takes longer for each extension to be rolled into the flexible keratin bond. This is time-consuming and labour intensive.

Luxury Remy Hair is Not Cheap

Our hair extensions are made from our slow processed luxury remy human hair. This hair is harder to source and our cold water, gentle pigment techniques take many more days to complete. This too is reflected in the price, though our mission is to keep prices as low as possible.

Are They Right For Me?

Micro ring hair extensions offer the wearer the benefit of a long-lasting bond, making them a great investment. The tip of the extension is contained within the copper ring meaning it cant be melted (e.g., from styling tools) or broken down by oils from the scalp. Secret Hair Extensions UK comes in a range of shades including mixed colours, ombre and balayage options. Your stylist can create a bespoke blend for your hair using our extensions.

A full range of after care products are available to prolong the performance of our products. If you are looking for extensions that dont have to be removed every day and will last for a long time they are an excellent choice. They are easy to look after making them an excellent choice for hair extensions newbies!
