Everyone loves the free-flowing and luscious style that hair extensions create. There is something to make everyone look beautiful! But, when you go to choose the hair extensions that you would like, you soon realise there are lots of options to choose from; it can be different to know what the differences are and what one is for you.
So, let’s have a look at u-tip hair extensions and i-tip hair extensions so you can choose the method that is right for you!
U-Tip Hair Extensions
U-tip hair extensions are one of the most popular methods you can get and for a good reason! Often nicknamed hot fusion or pre-bonded hair extensions, this method gets its name from the u-shaped curve at the tip. What makes these great is that they are suitable for all hair types and are especially good for those clients that have finer and thinner hair. This is because the bonds are small and discreet and since it uses a strand by strand method, you can attach the hair extensions very close to the hairline. This will mean that the hair blends in perfectly with your natural hair for long and voluminous locks all year round!
U-tip hair extensions, are pre-tipped with keratin and they are applied using a heat connector fitting tool. Before you can fit the hair extensions, the natural hair must be clean and free from everyday products. The hair should be freshly washed with a pre-fitting clarifying shampoo, but no conditioner. This will allow perfect application and make sure there are no damaging chemicals on your hair. The keratin is fused with the natural hair, which creates a secure and long lasting bond. To remove these hair extensions, this will require a professional so that you don’t damage your natural hair. They will use a hair extension remover for Italian keratin spray.

While these i-tip hair extensions can be used on a variety of hair types, they are best for people with average or thicker hair, so that the rings can be discreet.
To fit i-tip hair extensions, a professional will use a pulling tool that takes your hair through a small micro ring. This is then compressed with the i-tip hair extensions using pliers. This will keep them nice and secure! For a full head of hair extensions, this method will take around two to three hours to complete.
