Pre-Bonded V Clip-In

There are lots of different types of hair enhancements to choose from, with the most popular options being pre-bonded and clip-in hair extensions. Deciding which method is right for you can be confusing, so we’ve outlined the key differences to bear in mind when choosing your next set of locks…

What are Pre-Bonded Hair Extensions?

Here at Great Lengths, we specialise in pre-bonded hair extensions. Using 100% ethically sourced human hair, our extensions are attached to your hair using either a temporary tape-strip or keratin-infused bonds. Both application methods offer a longer term transformation versus clip-in hair extensions, and when applied and maintained correctly, have been scientifically proven not to damage hair. 

Lasting up to five months with the correct hair extensions maintenance, our bonded hair extensions are ideal for long-term transformations for length, colour or thickness and volume.

Lasting up to four week (with the option to re-tape and re-apply several times), our GL Apps tape-in hair extensions are a more temporary solution, best suited for adding volume or introducing colour.

What are clip in hair extensions?

Clip in hair extensions are wefts (panels) of hair that are attached with small clips or combs. Clip-in hair extensions usually feature wider lengths of hair, and can be difficult to disguise when wearing hair up. Clip-in hair extensions also need to be removed and reapplied every day, as well as cared for separately from your own haircare routine.
