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 ring.

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
  • Micro ring extensions with high quality Russian hair will last three to four months before requiring maintenance (tightening) due to hair growth, at which point, unlike glued-in extensions 100% of the extension hair can be reused
  • Can be worn back-to- back so you never have to ever be without your extensions
  • Silicon copper rings available in different colours and covered with plastic ensuring they blend seamlessly
  • Clamp securely in place and will not slip out even during the most challenging of activities

Not All Micro Rings Are Created Equal

For extensions to look undetectable it is imperative that the micro rings are not visible at any time, with any style under any conditions. While conventional sized coloured micro rings will remain undetectable and blend seamless with the natural hair Tatiana Karelina offers Micro Ringlets for its more discerning clients. The Micro Ringlets are custom designed and made exclusively for Tatiana Karelina and are smaller and lighter than conventional micro rings meaning that extensions can now be applied in areas where previously they could not.

Russian Hair

A lot of places say that they use Russian hair BUT they don’t. The reason for this is simple - Russian hair is not only more expensive it is also more difficult to source while Indian hair is readily available in large quantities and extremely cheap to buy.

Why Choose Russian Virgin Hair Over Indian Hair?

While Indian hair is finer and provides a good match for a Western women’s hair it is only available naturally in dark colours. It is also collected in such large quantities during tonsuring ritual the that the hair invariably gets tangled. To fix the problem of tangling the hair is subjected to an aggressive acid treatment to strip the cuticle layer. Then to get the dark hair light the hair has to undergo a further bleaching process. The hair is then coated with silicone, which gives it an artificial healthy look. In the beginning the hair is shiny and beautiful, but after a month of wear the silicone layer starts to wash away leaving the hair fragile with a dull matt appearance. This is one of the reasons why Indian hair is often paired with keratin bonds, an attachment technique where the hair cannot be reused and must be replaced every 8-10 weeks, as hair quality becomes less important when it has a shorter lifespan.

While Russian hair provides an excellent texture match for Western women’s hair it is considered to be the best because of diet. Diet greatly influences hair quality and the best hair comes from rural Russian communities where the diet is simple, high in nutrients and vitamins and low in sugar, salt and processed animal fats. In order to provide our clients with the best hair Tatiana Karelina never use Indian hair and instead only use Russian Virgin hair. This hair never been 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.

Colour Blending

The sensation of having gorgeous long hair is transformative. No client walks out of a Tatiana Karelina salon feeling unchanged. And it’s that feeling – that instant rise in self-confidence that really brings value to what we do for our clients. But in order to achieve a truly natural, transformative and completely seamless look proper blending is key.

Our Unique Approach to Colour Blending

For Tatiana Karelina, proper blending doesn’t start in the salon, but over in Russia in small rural communities where our hair is sourced. With so many different hair colours, textures and lengths on today’s woman the optimal colour and texture blend is almost always achieved by combining hair from several different ponytails. In doing this, we can ensure that there is no stringy colour separation as often happens when using pre-bonded hair extensions that come in a single texture and a solid colour. During the consultation process or before the fitting each client is invited to view our inventory of Russian hair and personally select the ponytails based on grade, colour and texture. Once the ponytails are selected, strands of hair are drawn from each ponytail and combined to create individual strands of hair that perfectly match the client’s natural hair. These individual strands are then pre-bonded in house and made available to the technician to fit.

If you are unsure if a salon will be able to create a perfectly blended head of hair a simple test would to be ask to see their inventory of hair. As Russian hair is scarce and expensive a salon that has invested in a considerable inventory of Russian hair and is willing to show you that hair is likely a capable salon. We pride ourselves on offering a same-day consultation and fitting for almost any client that walks through our door and in order to be able to do this we stock the largest inventory of of Russian hair in the UK.

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. Even to this day no other salon or company can boast that they offer hand-made clip-in extensions.

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.

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.

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.  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 London Fashion Week AW16. 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 LFW 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.

Is Your Russian Hair Really Russian?

One of the most common questions I get from clients that have been “shopping” around for Russian hair extensions is “How do I know that the salon is selling me real Russian hair”.
