At La Di Da Beauty, we’re always on the hunt for the latest and greatest industry trends and services. Our team is all about continuing education—and our obsession with learning recently took two of our seasoned stylists, Kyra and Trina, to Huntington Beach where they had the amazing opportunity to become trained and certified in the latest hair extensions: Natural Beaded Rows (NBR hair extensions). “This company has forever changed my view on extensions,” says Kyra.
From margarita sipping to ocean splashing to a little poolside relaxation (yes, please!), Huntington was an absolute blast for this dynamic duo—but they both agree that, by far, the best part of the trip was learning all about this hot new hair-extension trend. Read on for a complete breakdown of NBR hair extensions, and, as always, don’t hesitate to reach out to the La Di Da Beauty Team if you have any questions or want to schedule a consultation!
What are NBR Hair Extensions?
Natural Beaded Rows, or NBR extensions, are a brand-new, super unique hair-extension system that’s lightweight, comfortable, and extremely natural looking. It doesn’t use any tape or glue (more on this below!) so it blends seamlessly into your natural hair, is super easy to style (extension lovers, you can finally wear a top knot or high pony without your tracks showing!) and doesn’t damage your natural hair.
What makes NBR Hair Extensions different from other systems?
Ok, so where do we even start? If you’ve had extensions before, you probably know how heavy and uncomfortable they can often feel. And is there anything worse than your tracks or tape showing. While there are a number of things that set NBR extensions apart, we think the two most important are: 1) They are super lightweight and comfortable, and 2) There is ZERO tape or glue involved, so they end up looking extremely natural as they hide better than other types of extensions and won’t slip out. Plus, having no tape or glue means you can wear your hair any way without your extensions showing. If you’ve had tape-ins before, you know how impossible it is to pull your hair into a pony or top-knot without your tracks showing or, worse, your extensions pulling on and damaging your natural hair.
Another major bonus, though? They take an hour-and-a-half (plus color time). If you’ve had other hair extensions before, you know that most extension systems can typically take anywhere from 3-5 hours to complete. Plus, because there’s no glue or tape and a maximum of only three rows, they’re also super easy to remove without doing damage to your hair. The removal process only takes about ten minutes!
What kind of hair does the NBR system use?
NBR uses the highest quality hair called Bohyme Lux, which is 100% real human hair. Bohyme sources its hair from a single donor, which means your hair will look and feel super consistent through and through. Plus, all Bohyme hair can be custom-colored to match your natural or preferred hair color perfectly, making for a super seamless blend. Our favorite part about the Bohyme Lux hair, though? It can be reused for six months! If you take good care of your hair and use the products we recommend, you’ll get tons of use out of this super high-quality hair.
Who are NBR Hair Extensions right for?
NBR Extensions are a great solution for pretty much anyone, but we love them in particular for:
- Those who have fine, fragile hair who want to add thickness and volume.
- Those who want to add length to their natural hair.
- Those who lead an active lifestyle who want to be able to easily throw their hair in a pony or top-knot.
- Those who like wearing their hair a number of different ways (The tracks in NBR move very easily up or down with your natural hair and are super easy to style.)
- Those who are looking for a quick and effective hair-extension solution without having to spend an entire day in a salon chair
- Those who want natural looking extensions
How do I take care of my NBR Hair Extensions?
During your appointment, our extension experts will walk you through everything you need to know about properly caring for your extensions so they last as long as possible, but one major thing you can do is ensure you’re using the highest quality products to take care of your extensions. We highly recommend using:
- Oribe Moisture and Control Shampoo and Conditioner
- Oribe Ultra Gentle Shampoo and Conditioner
- Oribe Run Through Detangling Spray
- Oribe Supershine Moisture Cream (light or regular)
- Oribe Gold Lust Oil
- Oribe Royal Blowout
Psst…one final pro tip for NBR Hair Extension care? Moisture and oil are your best friends! Extension hair doesn’t produce oils like your natural hair does, so you need to apply oil to your extensions to keep them shiny, smooth and super healthy. We recommend Oribe Gold Lust Oil.
Overall, we’re beyond excited that we’re now able to offer our clients NBR Hair Extensions at the La Di Da Salon! We’re more than happy to answer any questions you may have about this new service, so don’t hesitate to contact us to schedule your consultation today!
