How to apply for micro loop hair extensions?
- Gather a strand of hair.
- With your free hand, take a micro ring extension and place the loop over your thumb and forefinger.
- Pull the natural hair through the fish line loop using your thumb and index finger.
- Hold the micro ring with one hand and the fish line loop with the other.
- Pull the fish line loop so that the natural hair begins threading through the micro ring.
- Pull the natural hair completely through the ring.
- Use the pliers to squeeze the ring shut. You need to squeeze quite firmly but is it not necessary to crush the ring closed. Too much force can damage the ring and also the hair.
- Repeat previous steps. You may place the extensions according to the person's head and hair type and the number of micro ring extensions you intend to use.

Micro ring extensions are a type of pre-bonded extensions that have a loop attached to them for quicker, easier application than U-tip extensions.
You don’t need heat to attach them to your hair though; instead, you attach them by looping your own hair through the little rings. The lack of heat means they’re safer in some respects, but if you apply them incorrectly, the potential for damage is far worse than with fusion bond extensions.
