What is loved so much about Corey-Paul’s Hair Studio is that each stylist cares about the health of their client’s hair. They care no matter what style they are going after. Brittny is no exception to this standard. Although microlinks serve as a manageable style that does not mean she is willing to add extensions on hair that is not in a healthy state. “Your hair is your crown, and that health starts with the scalp, says Scales. “If your scalp needs to be nourished then I offer a hydro steam treatment. It helps open the pores and allows the products to penetrate the hair. It will then work its way throughout the rest of the hair”.

Healthy Hair is Essential With Microlinks Hairstyles

There are still requirements the must be fulfilled before she takes her clients to the next level, and she does what it takes to get them there FIRST. Clients with more damaged hair are taken through a regimen process that gets the hair to a healthy state before adding the mircolinks. And a client must have at least four inches of hair so there is no question about beads staying in place. If you are not quite there yet with hair health or length do not worry, because she is going to do what it takes to get you there. After all, starting with a healthy natural head of hair is the key to maintaining this style as well as making sure it maintains a flawless look at best.

Microlinks Hairstyles Create Versatility

Like any good style, microlinks hairstyles allow you to switch it up from time to time. The lovely Kelia shows off this style first by showing how easy it is to rock. Starting out straightened with a part down the middle, which is very trendy now. But there are levels to where this style can take. Remember you are getting everything a lace front could offer. This includes the ability to pull your hair into different styles that still look seamless.

Brittny pulled Kelia’s hair into a half up half down look. This shows the versatility of the microlinks. She added more definition by wand curling Kelia’s hair. This gives it a more wavey look and then teasing it to add volume. That’s already three styles given to you. If you are transformative with how you wear your hair then there is an array of styles to be worn with microlinks.

Taking Care of Your Microlinks Between Salon Visits

Maintenance is easy as well. Most of the work is done when you come in every 6 to 8 weeks to get your hair retightened. Brittny does this by opening the bead and reattaching to the new growth. As far as her clients in between that time, Brittny says, “it is preferred that you just pull hair back into a ponytail as opposed to a high bun.” She says, “[You] do not want to pull your style into a high bun too much, because you could pull hair, and that could damage your hair along with the extensions. But all in all, you can treat this style as if it is your own. Wear it straight, in a ponytail, straightened, or even wand curled.
