Chic Review: Natural Beaded Rows at Salon Mosaic

My hair started getting super thin, and I was talking to a friend about it. She told me she had the same issue and she got Natural Beaded Rows from a woman named Michele who owns Salon Mosaic in Kenwood.

Michele is one of the one stylists trained to do these Natural Beaded Rows, or “NBR,” in the Tri-State area. They give you the look of natural, full hair which I definitely want because my hair is starting to get thin and it’s not a good look!

What I really liked about NBR over other extension options I looked up is that there’s no glue or tape involved. So, it’s better for your natural hair — the glue and tape-in ones really damage it and I didn’t want that. These NBR hair extensions also hide better and don’t slip out. I can pull my hair up in a bun, braid, or pony tail, go on a run, swimming, you name it, and you can’t see them and there’s no issue with them.

The method for how they do this is really interesting too. So you first come in for a quick consult where the stylist gets a look and feel for your natural hair. Michele then custom colors your extensions so your real hair and the extension hair has a seamless blend. Then you come in for your second appointment and the hair extensions are placed in rows in the hair by creating a “track” with an exclusive bead and string technique. Wefts are then placed on the track and sewn in. The extensions are then cut and blended to your hair. Then you’re styled and on your way!

The NBR extensions use really high quality 100% human hair. I honestly can’t tell which hair is mine and which is the extension when I run my hands through my hair now!

You’ll spend about 3 hours getting the extensions put in, but from what I read that’s actually a lot quicker than some of the other methods). Then, after you get your extensions in, you come back every 5-10 weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows, to get them adjusted. Michele can also touch up your color, cut and style while you’re there so you feel fresh and new again.

When I looked in that mirror after everything was in and styled, I seriously wanted to cry! It looked so beautiful, so natural, so ME! I never thought I’d be one to have extensions, but now that I have them, this is what I’ve wanted my hair to look like for a long time! I’ve seriously never loved my hair more!
