Sometimes choosing an extension method can be easy—you’re already familiar with the methods, you’ve seen the products, and you know what you want in terms of look and feel. But sometimes it’s not so straightforward. When it comes to new clients—or new hair extension methods, like Flat-Tip—experience and expertise may be lacking, leaving you a bit unsure as to which to choose. That’s where we come in. We’ve shared tons of materials, insights, and tips about each of our extension methods on our Online Education site, YouTube channel, and this blog, because we want every client to be matched with the method that best suits their needs. Today, we’re going to flesh out these resources with some additional information about Flat-Tip, answering once and for all the question, “who is Flat-Tip best for?”
As we’ve mentioned in past blogs and videos, Flat-Tip is a hybrid method that combines the best aspects of our Tape-In and I-Link methods into a single extension. It features the strand-by-strand, beaded installation of I-Link (and amazing 360 degree movement), and the flat-shaped, weft-style comfort and coverage of Tape-In. As such, clients who love I-Link or Tape-In will likely love Flat-Tip, too—and clients who are stuck between I-Link and Tape-In will find comfort in Flat-Tip’s all-encompassing appeal.
Kera-Link clients, who tend to favor the sturdy and stealthy hold of fusion bonds, are the only ones who may not drool over Flat-Tip’s promise—at least initially. However, these clients may benefit from periodic transitions between Kera-Link and Flat-Tip, as Flat-Tip’s non-invasive installation will allow their heat-treated hair to rest.
In general, we recommend Flat-Tip extensions for the following kinds of clients:
- Newer, speculative hair extension clients who have already tried out the Ready-to-Wear line
- Cautious clients who appreciate a forgiving extension method
- Mindful clients who are vigilant about their hair health
- Clients who wish to avoid glues, tape, and heat
- Casual clients who prioritize comfort above all else
- Clients who want a flexible, versatile extension method
- I-Link or Tape-In clients who are looking for a change
- Indecisive clients
Based on that list, Flat-Tip is great for just about anyone! Always remember to hold a thorough consultation session with your client before scheduling the installation, outlining the benefits of each method and seeking their input. When possible, show your client the extensions themselves, or direct them to this blog and our other resources! We’re always here to help.
