If clip-ins are not your cup of tea, chances are that you’re exploring the fabulous world of permanent hair extensions. But how to choose what’s best for you, and how to keep up with the latest hair extensions technology? Well, our team of experts has cooked something up for you! Introducing: flat tip hair extensions, the pre-bonded strands that can be connected to your natural tresses via a flat keratin tip using a heat connector. Do I have your attention? Let’s find out more about this incredible beauty solution together.
What Are Flat Tip Hair Extensions?
Flat tip hair extensions are a type of permanent hair extensions called “pre-bonded”, and they are part of our Remy Royale collection. The strands, made of 100% Remy human hair, are bound to each other thanks to a keratin melt, and then shaped into their iconic flat tip shape – hence the name. They are applied to natural hair by using a heat connector that softens the keratin bond, making it easy to manipulate.
The flat tip is then moulded around a small section of natural hair, and usually rolled around the fingertips by the stylist, to achieve an incredibly small and imperceptible bond between natural hair and flat tips hair extensions. This type of extensions is quite popular as it’s low-maintenance: it doesn’t need to be “moved up” as often as other products such as nano ring hair extensions or tape in hair extensions, for example. Each pack comes with a total of 50g of hair extensions, making it easy for hair professionals to work out how many packs they will need for a full-head makeover whilst reducing waste.
What does Remy Royale mean?
Remy Royale is the name we gave to our most luxurious collection. This exclusive double-drawn selection of hair, featuring meticulously chosen high-grade strands, undergoes special treatment from the very beginning of its journey. We ensure our Remy Royale tresses are cuticle-aligned to minimise frizz and reduce tangles, resulting in a healthier, shinier, and easily manageable appearance. Thick from root to tip, this type of hair extensions guarantees a fuller finish and helps better conceal short hair and blunt cuts.
Why are they called flat tips?
Flat tip hair extensions are the new edition of what we used to call “U-tip hair extensions”. Whilst the previous permanent range of this type was characterised by a slight curve, these hair extensions feature a flat attachment that makes it easier to mould around the hair and better conducts heat in order to speed up the application process. They are also commonly known as keratin bond hair extensions, or simply pre bonded hair extensions (although this name could possibly refer to other products too).
How long do flat tips hair extensions last?
The average makeover lasts around 3 months, unlike other permanent options that need to be moved up or re-fitted entirely after 8 to 10 weeks. Flat tip extensions are perfect for those looking to take longer breaks between hair extensions appointments, becoming a cost-effective solution. The stunning double-drawn hair they are made of has an average lifespan that goes from 6 to 12 months when properly taken care of.
Can you reuse flat tip hair extensions?
Yes, you can reuse them. Each strand can be removed by a qualified hair stylist and, given that the hair extensions have been given the proper TLC, they can be reused multiple times. Do not try to remove these hair extensions on your own!
