A Guide to Applying Nail Tip Hair Extensions

Nail-tip hair extensions offer a convenient and effective way to add length and fullness without causing damage to the natural locks. If you’re interested in using them in your salon, then you’ve come to the right place. This short guide will walk you through all the necessary steps required for applying hair extensions. It covers everything from selecting the appropriate type of extension to preparing the hair and attaching the extensions.

What tools do you need?


To attach the nail-tip hair extensions, you will require a connector tool, clips, and protective pads.

How do you attach nail-tip hair extensions?

Once you have washed the hair with shampoo and completely dried and brushed it, you can proceed to attach the extensions. Here’s how:


1. Part your hair and select a small section. The section should have a width similar to that of the extension attachment and resemble a semi-circle shape, with a straight upper side and a curved underside.


2. Secure a protective pad around the selected section and attach the plate. Proceed to place a hair extension beneath the chosen section of your natural hair.


3. Using the connector tool, melt the hair extension attachment completely. Then, roll the wax between your fingers until it forms a shape resembling a grain of rice, with the thickest part in the middle and thinner at both ends. Ensure that there are no air bubbles in the attachment and that it has a round and even shape.


4. After completing the previous steps, repeat them with the remaining extensions, and you're done!


How do you choose the right colour?

If you intend to use extensions for colour purposes or to create colour blends, select a shade that closely matches the client’s natural hair colour at the hairline and uppermost row. This technique will ensure that the extensions are undetectable and blend seamlessly with the natural hair.


How do you maintain nail-tip hair extensions?

In order to maintain the quality of the hair and nail-tip hair extensions for a longer period, it is essential to provide them with sufficient moisture and nourishment. Tell your clients to choose high-quality, tried-and-tested after-care products from reputable brands. Remind them to avoid applying too much heat to their hair for prolonged periods of time. Following these tips will keep their nail-tip hair extensions looking beautiful and healthy for months.
