Hair Extensions

Micro Rings Extensions

The micro ring technique is the smallest and most undetectable non-glue hair extension technique available, which combines strands of natural hair with the extension hair using tiny copper rings.

Why Choose Micro Ring Extensions?

  • No glue, adhesive or keratin bonds involved so there is no excessive force applied during removal and therefore no damage
  • You don’t throw out your handbag after 3-months use so why should you throw away your extensions.
  • Unlike glued-in extensions 100% of hair can be re-used again and again
  • Micro Ring extensions can be worn back-to-back so there is no need to ever be without your extensions
  • Silicon copper rings available in different colours and covered with plastic ensuring they blend seamlessly
  • The rings clamp securely in place and will not slip out even during the most challenging of activities

Not All Hair Extensions Are Created Equal

For extensions to look natural proper blending is paramount. Unnatural blending is caused, in most circumstances, by conflicting hair textures or poor colour match. With so many different hair colours and textures on today’s women a good salon should have a well-stocked inventory of hair, grades, textures and colours, on hand at all times to be able to achieve a natural and blended look.

Clip-In Extensions

Clip-ins can be a great temporary solution to achieve length, thickness and volume if they behave like your natural hair. Unfortunately, most of the clip-in extensions on the market today use thick processed hair in pre-fabricated wefts that easily tangles and mats. The result is clip-in extensions do not feel natural, last long or blend well with the natural hair.

Custom Made-to-Measure and Ready-to-Buy Clip-In Extensions

Recognising a gap existed in the market, Tatiana Karelina acted and was the first to introduce an exclusive line of bespoke clip-in extensions and accessories that were made from hand-tied wefts, tailored to the size of the client’s head and matched perfectly to their hair colour and texture.

Now, sitting alongside the made-to-measure clip-in line, Tatiana Karelina has launched its new ready-to-buy range of clip-in extensions.  Available in 6 colours in 18” length these clip-in are still made from hand-tied weft yet available to buy on an immediate basis at the Tatiana Karelina shop.

Source of Hair

There are different grades of human hair used within the extension industry with Chinese and Indian being the most common types found in use today. The reason for this is simple - it's readily available in large quantities and extremely cheap to buy.

Why Choose Russian Hair Over Chinese and Indian?

Chinese hair is thick and generally not suitable for Western women’s finer hair. Indian hair while finer is only available naturally in dark browns and black. Both types of hair are amassed in such large quantities that the hair is invariably turned in opposite directions causing the hair to tangle. To reduce the thickness and to fix the problem of tangling the hair is processed. This process involves an aggressive acid treatment to strip the cuticle layer. To get the naturally dark hair blonde, the hair has to undergo a further bleaching process leaving the hair opaque and fragile. The hair is then covered with a silicone layer, which gives it a simulated healthy look. In the beginning the hair seems shiny and beautiful, but after a few washes the silicone layer starts to wash away and the colour fades leaving the hair with a dull matt appearance.

In order to provide our clients with the best hair extensions Tatiana Karelina never use Chinese or Indian hair and instead only use the finest Russian and European hair. This hair never been dyed, bleached, or chemically treated and is collected in individual ponytails such that all the cuticles are facing the same direction from root to end. This ensures that the hair does not tangle or matt and will behave exactly like your natural looking hair.

Micro Ringlets & Silicone Micro Rings

Micro Ringlets are a significant advancement on conventional micro rings, which are widely accepted to be the best available hair extension attachment technique.  Custom designed and manufactured by  Tatiana Karelina the micro ringlets are smaller in diameter and length than conventional size micro rings.

Originally designed for people with short or fine hair who were previously considered unsuitable for micro ring extensions the small size and lightweight nature of the micro ringlets means that extensions can now be applied in areas where previously extension hair could not be attached. 

Silicone Micro Rings

Similarly to what Tatiana Karelina has done with its Micro Ringlets, it has designed and manufactured its own line of silicone micro rings as all the existing silicone rings on the market had one or more deficiencies for everyday use.  Rings were either too short, too small in diameter or had too much of a silicone circumference and would not be conducive to achieving a natural look.

With Tatiana Karelina’s silicone micro rings, the ring are longer, lighter and have a thinner layer of silicone.  This is an ideal solution for people with sensitive scalps, hair prone to breakage or those who have a tendency to lose extensions.

Essence of Tatiana Karelina

In our Manchester and London hair extensions salons you will be offered a no obligation consultation for micro ring and clip-in hair extensions where you will be taken through the process in detail including aftercare, recommended products and the total cost.

At this time a hair technician will bring out all the boxes of hair of the requested grade so that you can personally select the ponytails as quite often the optimal colour and texture blend is achieved by combining hair from several different ponytails. In doing this we can ensure that there is no stringy color separation as often happens when using pre-bonded hair extensions that come in a single texture and one of 15 solid colours.

Tatiana Karelina works directly with local collectors, not brokers, to ensure that its hair is ethically sourced and is of the finest quality.  Hair is reviewed and tested before it is made available ensuring that every strand is guaranteed to be soft to the touch and full of luster.

The final hair drawing, custom colour blending and pre-bonding are all done in-house, ideal for same day fittings.  Micro ring extensions should last three to four months before requiring maintenance, due to hair growth, at which point 100% of the extension hair can be reused.

Meet Tatiana

London 2009. Russian born, New York trained, Tatiana Karelina opens her London salon on a quiet Kensington street. A chic and stylish sanctuary where glamour and trend-setting styles go hand-in-hand. 8-years on, a roster of high profile clients, explosive press and a cutting edge hair designs has enabled her to have a deep and lasting impact on the London beauty landscape.

From the outset her revolutionary approach to extensions was clear. Instead of conforming to industry practice Karelina became a mistress of innovation. Using a combination of superior quality hair, a top-notch attachment technique in Micro Rings and an emphasis on creating an unrivalled client experience have defined Tatiana Karelina as a pioneering businesswoman.

Karelina’s initial contributions to the advancement of hair extensions in the UK includes being the first to break from using damaging glue to attach the extension hair and the first, given her local knowledge, to be able to source extension hair directly from her native Russia, she has more recently.  In doing so Karelina is able guarantee to her clientele that they are getting hair of the highest quality and by eliminating the “hair broker” the most competitive prices.

Tatiana Karelina credits her success to date because of her philosophy. She believes, above all, that when you accept responsibility for how someone looks and you understand the impact self-image has on a person’s happiness and success, changing someone’s hair becomes a very serious business.

Tatiana Karelina - Session Stylist

Tatiana Karelina is the founder and creative force behind her chain of self-named salons.  As one of the most highly respected figures in hair extensions today, her foray into session styling wasn’t an obvious one yet she has been able in a very short amount of time to have a significant impact on the London beauty landscape.

Thanks to her Russian heritage the Russian elite took notice and it wasn’t long before Tatiana was styling the covers of Russian Roulette and Gate magazine.  Her cover work was conceptually cool and innovatively refreshing and caught the eye of a photographer who instantly recognised her talent to create imaginative looks.

Fast forward to fashion shoots with Attraction and Adidas and on the back of that success she got her big break at this year’s London Fashion Week.  Felder Felder, a high profile label with a cult following among A-Listers like Gwyneth Paltrow and Rihanna, and known for creating elegance with an edge, needed a session stylist to create a cool and effortless look for their AW 16 London Fashion Week kick off show.  Enter Tatiana and her unicorn braid which became an instant hit and one of the most talked about hairstyles of the 2016 London Fashion Week. Read Metro’s article on Tatiana’s unicorn braids.

Looking to the future Tatiana will continue to be focused on the expansion of her hair extensions brand while at the same time becoming a more prominent fixture as a session stylish on the British fashion circuit.
