Frequently Asked Questions
Are micro wefts and micro links the same service?
While micro weft and micro link (also known as I-tips) are both services available at Canvas Hair Studio to provide our clients with a damage-free, versatile and quality hair installation, they differ in application, longevity and cost. Check out our Artistic Director, Chara, as she explains the difference in a video here.
How much is the micro weft and I TIP service?
Because no two manes are the same, we start the process with a consultation. During the consultation, our stylist helps you determine if micro weft or i-tips best suits your specific hair needs and provides you with a quote. You can book your consultation here or call 713-239-4260.
Is micro weft and i tips ideal for people with natural or short hair?
Both methods were made for those who want to let their natural hair be free. We have a wide selection of extension options to fit all natural hair types. Also, if your hair is short, no problem. We just need 3-4 inches of natural hair to provide a secure install.
Where can I get the hair needed for micro wefts and i tips?
We make the process as easy as possible for our clients by providing a variety of different hair types for you to choose from right at the salon.

How do I maintain these methods?
Proper maintenance is key to ensure your style lasts. We recommend a touch up on your micro wefts every 2 to 3 weeks, and a touch up on your micro links every 6 to 8 weeks. Our hair stylists won’t let you leave the chair without setting you up for success. We’ll recommend the best products to help you maintain your style until your next visits.

What are I TIPS ?
Micro links (I-tips) use small metallic beads to seamlessly attach your natural hair to I-tip hair extensions. Our expert stylists link your hair strand to the I-tip extension without the use of thread or glue. You’re left with a flawless, flat install that keeps your natural hair secure. Micro links are a great long-term solution for individuals with an active, busy lifestyle.
How long do I TIPS last?
With proper care and maintenance, micro links can last up to 6 months.
How long is the I TIP service?
The length of service depends on the thickness of your natural hair, but our clients can expect to be in our comfortable salon for up to 5 hours.
What are micro wefts?
The micro weft method uses beads to add wefts of hair in between your natural hair. The weft is horizontally placed and combined with your natural hair before it is pulled through a bead. The result? Fuller and longer hair without heat or glue. This installation method is perfect for those who want flexibility with styling their extensions.
How long do micro wefts last?
With proper care and maintenance, micro wefts can last 8 to 12 weeks.
How long is the micro weft service?
The micro weft service can be done in as little as 45 minutes. However, some clients have taken up to 2 hours depending on the fullness they desire.
