What are I-Tip Hair Extensions?

I-Tip Hair Extensions are made from the finest hair. They can be styled, permed, and colored allowing you to treat your hair extensions how you would treat your natural hair. To ensure I-Tips hair extensions are of top AAA+ quality, the cuticle is left in tack and in the same direction to give your extensions a softer manageable look and feel. Transform the appearance of your fine, or short hair into long thick beautiful looking hair. No damaging glues, waxes, or chemicals.

I-Tips latch onto the natural hair using flattened metal cylinders or microbeads.  According to Coveteur, “I-tips differ because they are individual pieces of hair that are used with a cylinder piece that all interloop around a person’s natural hair, comparatively, microlinks are created with a wefted track.”

I-Tip hair extensions can be made from various types of hair, including human hair, synthetic hair, or a blend of the two. They can also be customized to match the natural hair color, texture, and length. The extensions can be washed, styled, and treated like natural hair.

I-Tip Installation Process 

Here’s the typical process for installing I-tip hair extensions, but keep in mind that for the best results and to ensure your natural hair’s health, it’s recommended to have these extensions installed by a professional.

A consultation is required prior to your installation appointment.

  1. Installation:
    • Beads: A small section of your hair is threaded through a tiny bead or loop near your roots.
    • Hair Extensions: The I-tip extension, which is a small bundle of hair with a pointed tip, is then inserted into the bead alongside your natural hair.
    • Clamping the Bead: Using special pliers, the stylist clamps the bead securely in place, holding the extension and your natural hair together. This creates a strong hold without using heat or glue.
  2. Blending and Styling:
    • Cutting and Blending: The extensions can be cut and blended into your natural hair to create a seamless look.
    • Styling: Once all the extensions are applied, your hair can be styled as desired, with the extensions now acting as part of your natural hair.
  3. Maintenance:
    • Regular Adjustments: As your hair grows, the beads can move away from the scalp. You’ll need to visit the salon every 6-8 weeks to have the beads removed and repositioned closer to the scalp.
    • Gentle Care: It’s also important to use sulfate-free hair products to maintain the integrity of the extensions and your natural hair.
  4. Removal:
    • When it’s time to remove the extensions, the stylist will unclamp the beads using the pliers and slide the extensions out.
