Great Tips for Choosing the Right Hair Extensions

Hair extension application methods are just vital for you to consider as you weigh up what type of hair type you will choose. Quite often, there are plenty of methods to choose from, and it is up to you to decide which method you prefer.


The three most commonly used hair extensions application methods are: I-Tip, U-Tip, and Tape Wefts.


I-Tip: Using micro-ring bead, these are generally applied strand by strand using permanent hair extensions. Hair is looped through the micro ring, and a tool similar to pliers is used to squeeze the ring shut around the hair, to bond it. To remove, simply reverse the process by squeezing the ring in the opposite direction. Depending on how fast the hair grows, these can last up to six weeks. Another bonus of using this method is that the hair can be re-used when you need to have them reapplied. I-tip extensions are perfect for adding volume and length and to mix it up, you can even add in various coloured highlights. After the application you can cut and style your hair as per your choice.


U-Tip: These are also a strand-by-strand permanent method. Attaching natural hair on the head using Keratin glue, they can also last up-to 6 weeks depending on hair growth. Because these are bonded to the hair, it is recommended that they are removed by professional as they are taken out using remover fluid applied to the extension bond. The bond is then squeezed with pliers multiple times until loosened, and gently pulled off.


Tape Weft: Very popular. Application of tape weft extensions is relatively easy and quick to apply. The pre taped weft of hair is inserted into either side of the natural hair. Easy to maintain, they can be washed and styled similar to your natural hair. These do not have clear bonds and can be seen through the hair. If you often wear your hair in up-do and ponytails, these may be harder for you to wear and you need to ensure the wefts are covered before styling.


If you are looking for a stylist

Now that you are ready to choose the method that will be best for your needs, it is also a good idea to research for a qualified stylist who will be applying your new hair. There are plenty of unqualified and untrained stylists who claim to know how to apply them which can often lead to waste of your money, time and worst case scenario- loss of your hair as well.

Make sure you go into the salon, have them look at your hair and recommend the best application method after assessing your current hair type first. Now you are informed on application methods, and how to find the best stylist available to you. Most of all, enjoy your new look!
