How To Apply Nano Tip Hair Extensions

Nano-Tip Application Tutorial:

The nano ring technique is the latest and most discreet way of applying hair extensions currently on the market today. Nano-tipped hair extensions are very popular as they are extremely comfortable and there nano-beads are almost impossible to see! This method is very similar to the “stick-tipped” technique and 3mm nano-beads are considered to be less noticeable and 90% smaller than traditional micro rings.


Prepare Before Installation:

Before application we always recommend you carry out a skin patch test, just in case your customer reacts in anyway to the nano-tip bonds or nano rings Patch Test Explained Its very important that you make sure your natural hair (or client's hair) washes it before installing nano-tipped hair extensions. We recommend you need to wash the hair at least twice with a deep cleansing shampoo to remove any grease or oils several days before you start the application process. If the hair is not completely clean, the nano-rings will not take to your hair correctly, this can cause the extension to slip.


Tools Required To Apply Nano Tip Hair Extensions?

Here is a list of items you will require before installation:

Nano Tip Hair Extensions
Nano Rings (silicone-lined nano rings) or (pre-loaded nano-rings)
EZ Threader (also known as bead loader)
Smooth Jaw Plier (to clamp the nano rings) or HairX Pro Nano Pliers
Section Comb (to section the hair)
Hair Section Grippers



Step-By-Step Instructions:

1) To apply nano-tip extensions, firstly load your EZ Threader tool with a nano-ring, then simply thread the bead over the hook so the nano-ring is resting on the stick, to save time with the application you can load extra rings on the threader.
2) Using a section comb, create a section off a small amount of hair to prepare for attaching your first extension. Then using the EZ Threader tool, simply hook the hair and feed the first bead over the hook, which will feed the hair through the nano-ring.
3) Then feed the metal hook from the nano-tip extension into the nano-bead.
4) Position the nano-ring into place but not too close to the root area (to prevent from pulling the hair)
5) Using your smooth-jaw pliers, clamp the nano ring so its nice and secure, this will hold the extension in place.
6) Repeat the above steps until you have finished the full head application!
