The Stel­lar trial

Cop­per bell ex­ten­sions

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Beauty -

On-trend hair­cuts such as the lob and pixie come and go, but cas­cad­ing waves never date. For a faux head of Ra­pun­zel­like tresses, cop­per bell (or mi­cro bead) hair ex­ten­sions don’t use glue, heat or rough pulling. In­stead, hair is ap­plied in­di­vid­u­ally to each strand, cre­at­ing a softer, more sup­ple look.

Each strand of real hair is at­tached in­side a cop­per clip, which is in turn threaded to an in­di­vid­ual’s roots, close to the skull. There are a mul­ti­tude of colours and styles to choose from and they are best ap­plied post-foil colour, but be­fore all-over colour, for an op­ti­mum match. The ex­ten­sions can then be re-ap­plied with re­growth ev­ery 8–10 weeks.
