Invisible Bead Hair Extensions



At Aerea Salon we believe that one of the most important aspects of hair extensions is the quality of the hair used. That is the reason why we choose to use the most requested  hand tied extensions method for our clientele who are in need of a beauty transformation.


The origin of the IBE hair is primarily of Asian origin. This  hair matches the widest range of hair textures and is rarely chemically treated, therefore making them the best hair type to be used for hair extensions.

 For Invisible Bead Extensions, a row of small silicone-lined beads is secured to the natural hair with a bead threader tool. Then a flat, thin weft of high-quality human hair is hand-sewn to the beads using a special IBE stitching technique. This process is repeated with each row. Typically, an IBE application is made up of between 1-3 rows of hair. The whole process takes between 3 to 5 hours to complete.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is IBE the same as hand tied extensions?

Hand-tied extensions is the TYPE of weft used; IBE® is the method.


Can I do IBE with flat wefts or machine tied wefts?

IBE was created specifically for the use of hand-tied and micro wefts. Every single measurement, stitch, and placement is done with only the use of hand-tied wefts. If another type of weft is used, we cannot guarantee the full IBE® experience will be met.

What is the cost of getting Individual Bead Extensions

Individual Bead Extensions is a custom service therefore the price of the application will vary depending on the amount of hair needed and length you desire. For a more precise and accurate answer depending on the state of your natural hair and desired look, schedule a consultation with Liz who is our hair extensions specialist.

Do hair extensions damage my hair?

The application will not damage your hair but caring and maintaining is crucial. The high level of expertise of your stylist is important for a damage free application and it is the main reason Individual Bead Extensions stylists are highly respected by extension clients around the world. Individual Bead Extensions has strict policies for certifying hair stylists which is mandatory. No need to say more when only few extension brands require education as most companies have the training optional, and not mandatory.


How often do I need to get my hair extensions reinstalled?

We recommend your first follow-up appointment at 7 weeks. At that time, your stylist will evaluate your grow-out and determine if you can go longer in between appointments. On average, one has their rows reinstalled between 8-10 weeks.


How long does the hair last?

Quality hand-tied and micro weft hair will last on average 6-12 months. With proper styling care and the proper use of professional hair products, you can easily get one year out of your hair. The hair we have in our IBE® online store is the highest quality hair on the market and we can only vouch for that. There are many types of hair on the market with different origins, so make sure you’ve researched the company if you look outside our store.


What’s the difference between IBE® and other “invisible” methods?

IBE® was created with the health of the client’s scalp and hair at the top of our list. We create a unique track that focuses on flexibility and equal weight distribution. Our track is durable and is easily maintained due to the continuous track. We believe that minimal points of contact equal maximum points of damage. Unlike other traditional beaded weft methods, with IBE® there is no contact of a bead with the scalp at any time. Because of that, as well as our focus on proper tension, IBE® is a much more comfortable extension experience for guests.

With IBE®, our focus is on the precision of stitching and beadwork which allows for a longer time in between move ups. 


How is an IBE® flip up different than others?

Invisible Bead Extensions® is known as the “Original Flip Up” for good reason. It is the first Patented extension method to show a bead-less flip up. We were the first to truly research and develop a method which put the safety of the clients hair and scalp first. We were the first to be transparent with our grow out, showing the world what our guest’s extensions look like at 6, 10, 16, and 26 weeks! Nothing to hide here!

Many methods have tried to copy the IBE® flip up but we are confident that what is taught here remains the best. Our attention to detail is unmatched. Our emphasis on proper tension and placement is not found in any other extension training system. Our authenticity will never be in question, for we know that we created this to solve the problems with other methods and training systems, not to just copy a photo.

How many rows of IBE extensions do I need?

How many rows do I need? If you are looking for volume or thickness, 1 row is perfect! If you want length and volume, you will definitely need 3 rows. On average most clients have 3 rows.

How long do IBE extensions last?

IBE Extensions should last from 9 months to a full year because the weft can be reinstalled as your hair grows.

Tape-In Hair Extensions

Tape Hair Extensions can be described as an exciting and innovative hair extension method that results in a beautiful and natural look avoiding stress and damage to your hair or countless  hours of your time sitting in the hair salon chair. AEREA Salon is leading the industry in NYC for tape hair extensions. This specific method uses 100% human hair and the use of heat,beads, knots, glue, wefts, braiding or weaving is not required. These hair extensions are easily removed with a simple removal solution and the hair is left with minimal to no damage or breakage. Tape extensions are the most seamless, natural and comfortable extensions on the market. They are affordable and there is no tangling, knotting or matting. At AEREA Salon, our experts in tape-in hair extensions will consult with you on the most appropriate style, color and length for your hair. Prices may vary depending on thickness, volume and length desired and will be assesed during your consultation. Maintaining your extensions is NECCESARY every 6-8 weeks to keep the condition of your  in tact and most importantly the condition of your natural hair. Re-applying includes removing, re-taping, cleaning and re-applying the extensions.

Hair extensions are known for having a reputation as a high-maintenance accessory better reserved for stars frequenting the red carpets. Having worked with a lot of different types throughout the years, tape hair extensions will simply give you longer, thicker, shinier hair. Here are few reasons why you should try them:


1. They look and feel natural!


Tape-in extensions will resemble your own natural hair, and there is proof. Customers who've been wearing extensions for years have friends and colleagues who don't believe them when they’re told. When the tape is placed on the hair, it’s so comfortable that most customers often forget that they even have extensions until they put it up into a new, thick and voluptuous ponytail. Keeping in mind that all of us have different types of hair, matching density, thickness, texture and color of hair extensions with your own hair is essential in creating a natural looking, full head of hair. This is the reason why our extension specialists recommend professional application.


When looking for extensions, whether you’re looking to enhance volume, length or texture, always opt for 100 percent human hair, either European virgin or Remy. This is crucial because natural hair has the hair cuticle intact and laying in the same direction, meaning the extensions act just like your natural hair would.


2. Applying and removing is easy!  

Applying a full head of tape in extensions usually takes no longer than two hours - the average time for any type of hair service. The extension hair is bonded to highly resilient hair tape. After removing the protective layer of the tapes which reveals the adhesive, a section of your hair is placed in between them.


When it comes to removal of tape in extensions, the process is even quicker than applying them. The bond tape is soaked in a safe and special formulated solution which loosens the adhesive making the extension strip slip right off. The solution is then removed from your natural hair with a few simple shampoos. As hair grows, the extension bonds grow further away from the root which make it more likely to twist and tangle. It is because of this that it is recommended to remove and reapply extensions every eight to ten weeks.

3. They're easy to care for.

Washing, blow-drying, flat ironing, curling, braiding—you can do that AND MORE to your new extensions, just like you would with your natural hair. Just like natural hair, extensions are most fragile when wet. Before combing your hair, it is easier to detangle it by blowdrying the roots and bonds. This prevents tugging on the new bonds of hair. Our stylists also recommend sleeping with hair in a loose braid - it not only prevents tangling but also results in beautiful and simple waves. Many customers also say that extension hair usually holds hairstyles better than their natural hair.


4. They don't cause damage.

We’ve all heard of many stories of celebrities or people who end up with breakage and hair loss due to extensions. However, if applied correctly and treated with care, tape-in extensions do not threaten the overall health of your natural hair. Some people say that when trying to grow out their natural hair, tape-in hair extensions help with the process without causing damage. As the natural hair grows, the tape-in extensions do nothing but grow with the hair they are attached to causing little to no damage. The only warning we have is that extensions are addicting! Our customers love being able to switch from a short bob to long, red-carpet-worthy waves

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Are tape-in hair extensions Real Human Hair?

A. Tape hair extensions are 100% remy human hair which means the hair cuticle is intact and the hair is directed in the same way to prevent the hair from getting tangled and matted.


Q. Do tape hair extensions last forever?

A. Tape hair extensions unfortunately cannot last forever but will last at least 8-10 weeks. That will depend on how fast your hair grows, lifestyle, heat exposure, etc., but the good news is that the hair can be re-used up to 3 times.


Q. Are custom colors available?

A. Of course, as there are various colors available that can be mixed together and create many different color combinations.


Q. Straighten, wave or simply blow dry! Can I do all this to my hair extensions?

A. Tape hair extensions are totally fine when subjected to all of the above. However, when exposed to extensive styling heat the condition of the hair will decrease so you might need to order new hair sooner than expected. Caution: Direct heat on the bonds/ tape tabs should be avoided in order to not compromise the longevity of the extensions.


Q. Is it ok to use any type of products in the hair?

A.  Your new hair can be treated just as your normal hair. Sulfate free shampoo are great to prevent the extension hair color from fading. Conditioners are fine for the mid shaft and ends but should be avoided near the bonds. Products containing alcohol and essential oils should be avoided as well near or around the bonds.


Q.  Can I color my roots while the extensions are still in the hair?

A.  Absolutely, however please refer to an experienced hair colorist to ensure the integrity of the bonds while retouching you hair color.
