Soft bonds are a specially formulated, trade secret bonding product for hair extensions created by WEST COAST HAIR® founder, Tiffany Twist.
The soft bonds are applied by Tiffany and her daughters in 2 locations; one in Minneapolis, Minnesota and, another, at a host salon in Los Angeles, California, by appointment.

Soft bonds contain no glues or fusion. There are no metals or tools used in the application of the hair extensions. This means no slicing of the hair, poking of the scalp, no burning, no pliers causing painful pulling.
This soft bond, created by Tiffany Twist, allows the most gentlest of hair extension wear. Even a single strand of hair can be freed from the flexible, soft hair extension attachment without breaking that hair. That's proof! No pulling, tugging, breaking of the natural hair with proper application and care of the soft bond hair extensions.
Soft bonds come in customizable bond colors which allow us to match your root hairs for hair extension attachments that simply disappear with wear!
Soft bonds are infused with ColorLock™. This means there is no flaking and whitening of the hair extension attachments as in fusion and hot glue applications (especially unfortunate for us brunettes!). Even the metal links turn green or rust (and leach these metals into the scalp!).
Soft bonds with ColorLock™ are just better and more discreet from Day 1 all the way through your many months of wear.

Selecting the right hair extension method and product for your broken, over-processed hair is important. You will not want to select a hair extension method or product which can damage you hair even more. You will also want to be aware of what you are selecting for your preferred hair extension method even if your hair is healthy and you just want hair extensions to update your look or maybe you want to mimic your favorite celebrity's hair style. Hair extensions are the fastest and easiest way to do this!
This client came to WEST COAST HAIR® with processed, broken and thin hair. She was interested in the most cutting-edge hair extension products and method.
After careful review and consultation, she decided WEST COAST HAIR® soft bonds were the very best for her!
She has been through processes which used glue and fusion to apply the hair extensions and was interested in a hair extension method which was non-damaging to her very fragile hair.
We added beautiful remi extension hair with the soft bonds and, in no-time, our client was feeling so much better about her hair!
We were so happy to have her at our WEST COAST HAIR® hair extension studio in Minneapolis. (Call for your appointment! 1-888-WCH-5487 or use this form here.)
The end result made her feel happy and look fantastic. I always rave how hair extensions can take a decade off our faces, it's truly amazing!
Our client sent an email about a week later:
"Hi! I just wanted to write and tell you how great I think WCH extensions are! I absolutely love them so far - very easy to work with and style! I feel like I have hair again! It doesn't tangle, I haven't shed much - absolute perfection! Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

As hair extension methods, how do West Coast Hair® THE BOND™ and Micro-Links compare?
Here’s some of what West Coast Hair® Natural Soft Bond Hair Extension wearers are saying:
One wearer of the bonds writes in, “I am loving your hair extension system more and more as time goes on. I am trying to convince my friend who had professional regular micro-links installed (and is also having problems with slippage)… Man, [THE BOND™] is SO much better. If I had a cosmetology license I would definitely get into the extension business and sell this.”
While most fusion and keratin hair extensions bonds flake and turn white, THE BOND™ is infused with ColorLock™ which means your bond color stays vivid to match both the natural hair and extensions for discreet and unnoticeable wear!
THE BOND™ is a natural and non-toxic formula created by Tiffany Twist which uses no tools to apply and no chemicals to remove! Tiffany Twist's specially formulated glue-free hair extension product, THE BOND™ contains ingredients which occur in nature. These are non-toxic and do not contain chemicals like glue and fusion hair extensions. While the extensions are very secure for many months of wear, they require just a simple breaking and bending to release the extension from the hair. No tools and no chemicals or oily dissolvers means you can reuse the same extension hair if you want to and accomplish your own hair extension removal to save money, as well.
You absolutely can grow your hair while wearing hair extensions. And you can find a safe, gentle hair extension method to use while doing it.
My hair extension client is a singer and model who came to me just over 3 years ago and wanted to know all about my new method of applying hair extensions. She heard about the safe, non-damaging, hair extension products I had created and was testing, and thought it too good to be true and chances were, as far as she could tell, it would just be another false claim trying to defend hair extensions, right? Or would it be?
My client had just been recovering from a fusion hair extension installation which left her hair nearly destroyed. Scissors were used to remove some of the fusion hair extension bonds which left her with small sections of hair just an inch or so long in various places in the back of her head. Other areas were just broken off from too much chemical use. Subsequently, Kaytee began to wear clip-in hair extensions but after 6 months of the metal scraping her head day-after-day and pulling causing small bald spots, she’d had enough.
She thought, there must be a better way.
Here are Kay’s “before hair extension’s photos” when she first came to me.
She started her search online and found my natural soft bond hair extension product. She made me assure her over and over the hair extension product would not harm her hair. After I showed her the soft bonds in my own hair, we talked about doing a few things to monitor her natural hair while she wore the hair extensions.
One thing we did, along with take photos, was to use ribbon to wrap around her ponytail and then trim the ribbon end to end. Then, she could take this piece of ribbon with her (put it in her wallet, maybe or somewhere she would remember it) and measure once again when the hair extensions are removed.
And here was Kay 4 months later after removing her first West Coast Hair® install after which (since she saves time and money easily removing the hair extensions herself) she came for her second set of hair extensions.
You can see how the condition of her hair improved even while she wore the hair extension method! her hair grew longer and became thicker during those 4 months of wearing the West Coast Hair® hair extension method and products. She’s been pleased ever since.
Typically, after months and months of wearing hair extensions, the wearer becomes accustomed to the thickness of the extension hair. Thus, when the hair extensions come out, it is sometimes a shock to see or feel how thin the natural hair is. This, many times, is a matter of perception since the natural hair might be no thinner than it was to begin with.
This is why I take measurements, with an actual tape measure and the ribbon (as with Kay, above) so I can assure the wearer the natural hair only feels thinner because she has become used to the thickness of the hair extension.
Once she realized her was not thinning out from the hair extensions but actually thickening (since the ribbon could no longer be placed end to end) and is growing, we could stop using the measure but we always keep up the photos.
Each and every extension install, I take a photo of the back and sides of her hair so we can compare these to her “before hair extension’s” photos each install she comes for. I print out the pictures and place these in a file for her which contains her consult cards, specific clips and tools I use for her installs, and any extra hair. We keep in this file for her next hair extension appointment. Looking through the photos to see how much her hair has grown is our favorite part of the day.
Here are some more of this client's next set of pictures we took before putting in her hair extensions.
Continuous hair extension wear doesn't need to be harmful or damage the natural hair. West Coast Hair Natural Soft Bond Hair Extensions is a proven product and technique which allows the natural hair to remain healthy while wearing hair extensions.
And then pictures again 4 months later. Her hair is growing and becoming fuller through each subsequent hair extension installation proving you can actually grow your hair while wearing hair extensions!
Kay comes for a new set of hair extensions around the 3-4 months point. Her hair is growing and thickening beautifully while wearing her West Coast Hair® hair extensions.
You can imagine she is absolutely convinced of the West Coast Hair® Natural Soft Bond Hair Extension product and method and assured it does no harm to the natural hair, a claim we are so proud to be able to make. Most of us have become accustomed to “casualties” when it comes to wearing hair extensions, which means we are used to a hair being pulled here and broken there and smelly chemicals on our hair extension removal day.
It’s just part of the sacrifice to having immediate longer and thicker hair and hair extensions are the only way and hair extensions are damaging, right?
West Coast Hair® Natural Soft Bond Hair Extensions use an exclusive hair extension product created by Tiffany Twist. The bond has no glues or adhesive fusions to bind to your hair as in fusion, cold fusion and bonded weft hair extension applications do. This is why there are no pulled, ripped or broken hairs involved in West Coast Hair® hair extension wear. The bonding product is flexible and moveable and allows a single hair to be released safely from the extension attachment when it is pulled gently from its grip. And this doesn’t mean your hair extension is not secure. Amazingly, the bonds are secure for as long as you wear them. (Recommended time of wearing a hair extension is typically around the 4 month period.)
This means with West Coast Hair® you will not cause damage to your own which is beyond repair. You won’t see broken hairs or hair which has been prematurely pulled out from the root (we all shed our own natural hair naturally, but it is hairs not ready to shed that can be pulled from the root when using glues and wax adhesives such as latex and liquid adhesives and other super-glue type products we find are being to attach hair extensions.)
West Coast Hair® uses an exclusive, safe, patent-pending hair extension bond which is a balance of products found in nature, natural and contain no toxins, are not chemicals, are glue-free. Tiffany Twist has created THE BOND™, a formation of 100% naturally occurring lipids which can easily be removed from the hair sans harsh, harmful chemicals. When asking for, installing or wearing West Coast Hair® you can be assured of gentle and safe products, no chemicals or heavy machinery =) to remove, the ability to re-use your extension hair and the assuredness of great possibilities when it comes to growing your hair longer and thicker while wearing hair extensions.
When Rhonda first came to me for hair extensions, I saw her and thought, this girl is beautiful! But I could see that her hair needed help and I was happy to do that for her!
Rhonda suffers this terrible disease called Lupus, it's a long-term autoimmune disorder which effects various organs and functions in the body. The medication she needed caused her hair to become very brittle. Her long hair broke off and she was devastated and desperate to find the safest hair extension method for her thin, fine, fragile hair. This is when she looked toward hair extensions as the answer.
As many do, she started with clip-in hair extensions. Because they are typically clipped into the same areas of the hair and carry most the weight of the heavy hair and track the extension hair is attached to, she was getting these little bald spots in those areas of her head. They were not the safest hair extension method for her to be wearing in her thin hair. Her weak, brittle hair just wouldn't handle the weight of the clip in hair extensions.
Above is Rhonda's hair growth over a period of about a year. This is while wearing WEST COAST HAIR® soft bond™ hair extensions continuously through that period, 3 installations of about 4 months per set of hair extensions.
In 2007, I came up with a unique hair extension bonding product and technique, called soft bonding. The hair extension market hasn't seen anything like it before. It is by far the most gentle bonding product on the hair extension market today. Most hair extension methods use glues (fusion), adhesive glue-type waxes (keratin), metal clips or metal links (micro links), glues in tape hair extensions and other hair extension uses which might be questioned when it comes to safety for the hair during care and removal of the hair extensions. I wanted a product for my hair extensions which was gentle on the natural hair, easy to care for and simple to remove. My process involved no chemicals or tools to remove or apply so the appeal was immediate and the hair extension industry took notice.
Rhonda also noticed the difference in her own hair immediately.
She could tell the West Coast Hair® soft bonds™ were gentle on, and safe for, her thin, fragile hair, better than anything she had tried in the past. After just a few installs over a period of about a year, we could see that her hair was growing fuller and longer even while she was wearing WEST COAST HAIR®.
Rhonda's happy she has her long beautiful hair back and I'm happy WEST COAST HAIR® was able to do that for her and, through our unique patent-pending hair extension method, give her the confidence she so desperately wanted!
