Some questions we are asked about U-tip extensions include:
What is the difference between double drawn hair and single drawn hair? Double drawn hair extensions, like the ones offered by AiryHair, are the highest quality because the hair is manually treated so shorter hairs are eliminated. That means almost all the hair is of equal length, resulting in better volume. Single-drawn hair extensions have thinner ends.
What are the benefits of Remy hair? Remy hair extensions have strands that are all the same length and alignment, resulting in a flawless, tangle-free look. Many stores add “Remy” to the label, when really the hair has just been treated with acid. With AiryHair, we guarantee the best quality Remy hair.
What are Remy Premium Plus extensions? These hair extensions are perfect if you plan to process, dye or curl them. They tend to withstand treatments better and are perfect if you need to extend the lifespan of your extensions.
Why Buy U-Tip Hair Extensions?
U-tip extensions are also called glue because of the glue tipped bonds. Deciding whether glue extensions are for you requires that you get familiar with all of its positive and negative features, as well as consider your daily habits. We have put together a list of the most important pros and cons of u-tip bonds that can help you decide whether you want to go ahead and buy them or not.
The Pros of U-Tip (Glue) Hair Extensions
First, let’s begin with glue extensions pros where you can read all about the amazing features you can get by choosing affordable u-tip extensions. Perfect for Getting Longer and Fuller Hair If you dream about long, luscious locks but your strands are simply too short, then you might want to try out our u-tip extensions. Growing your hair can be a painstakingly long process, especially if you have the type of strands that naturally grow slowly. Hot fusion extensions offer instant length that will give you that glamorous look. Greater hair density is also something you get by installing U-tip hair extensions. Thick and voluminous locks simply look better and more attractive. Because fusion is a strand-by-strand method, you can control the overall density by how many strands you put in. Some girls like just a slight volume boost while others go for the extra volume.
Glue Extensions Last for a Long Time
U-tip extensions are one of the longest lasting ones out there. It is hard to predict the exact time because there are so many different factors that influence it. The quality of the hair, installation, and maintenance are some of the things that greatly influence the lifespan of glue extensions. But let’s say you bought high-quality Remy hair, got it properly installed, and take great care of it, then you can expect the U-tip hair extensions s to last at least five months.
glue hair extensions fall into the category of semi-permanent extensions. What that means is while the strands last for a very long time, they need to be refitted regularly. That means you can’t take the strands off every day and must commit to wearing them at least a couple of weeks. As your natural hair strands grow, the U-tip strands grow along with it which means they must be moved higher up on the roots to stay invisible.
What’s great about glue extensions is once they’re glued on, there is basically no chance of them coming off. When the u-tip is attached to a strand, it is very secure and will stay in place for a long time. The only way that the u-tip hair extensions to get detached is if heat is applied to them, they’re incorrectly washed, or the installation was not professionally done.
Perfect for Thick Hair
Wefts can sometimes look too bulky and unnatural on very thick hair and that’s why glue extensions are a much better choice. They will blend in better with coarse hair and you also have the option to control how many strands are installed. That does not mean that U-tip extensions can’t be installed on thin hair, however tape-in extensions are a much better option in that case.
Different Shades and Textures Available
AiryHair offers a wide range of shades and textures that you can choose from. The whole point of extensions is that they blend in seamlessly with natural strands and that is best achieved by picking the color and texture carefully. For best results, pick a texture that corresponds to your real hair and try to match the shades as well.
Can Be Used to Add Highlights
Another cool thing that can be done with u-tip hair extensions is creating highlights and colorful hairstyles. For example, you can buy a couple of Remy U-tip hair extensions that are lighter than your hair color and place them strategically to get pops of color. If you’re a fan of the balayage technique, you’ll be happy to know that it can be done using only glue extensions. There is no need to dye your own hair.
Although glue extensions are not the cheapest ones out there, you can still find good quality ones for a low price. For example, you can get 16’’ pre-bonded U-tip hair extensions for only $40 which is not that expensive considering how long you can wear them. Synthetic ones are even cheaper, but we recommend that you stay away from those and go for real human hair instead, which will pay off in the long run. Synthetic hair might cost less, but it doesn’t last nearly as long as Remy hair.
Comfortable to Wear
Real human hair extensions that use u-tips are known for being one of the most comfortable ones out there. That’s because they’re attached strand by strand and the bonds are very small and thin. After they’re attached and cooled down, they’re still kind of soft so they won’t be hard against your head. As with all extensions, it takes some time to get used to having all that extra hair, but after a couple of days you’ll forget about it.
Realistic Look and Feel
If the U-tip hair extensions are made of the real human hair, they will merge with natural strands and be completely indistinguishable from the real thing. There are also no limitations as to what you can do with glue extensions in terms of styling. You can braid the hair, pull it up, and basically do whatever you would with your own hair.
Natural Hair Movement
A great thing about strand-by-strand methods is that they allow for a natural hair movement, so you can flip and toss your hair as much as you want to, which can’t be said for wefts. Even if there’s strong wind that’s moving your hair, the U-tip extensions will still look natural.
More Styling Options
There’s not much that can be done to short hair, so you have to stick to only a couple styling options. However, when you extend the length of your own hair, you will notice that there’s suddenly a wide range of styles that you can try. If you’re the type of girl who likes to have a different hairstyle each day, extensions are a real-life saver.
Even though the hair needs to be refitted every two or three weeks, it is reusable. That means you don’t have to buy new u-tip extensions, simply move them higher up.
The Cons of U-Tip (Glue) Hair Extensions
There are also some cons to glue extensions that are worth mentioning.
Not as Easy to Install and Remove at Home
The main problem with u-tip hair extensions or any hot fusion hair in general is that it’s not so easy to install them by yourself, especially if you’re a beginner. A hot tool is needed to melt the glue bonds and glue them on each strand. It’s more complicated than simply clipping a couple of wefts on. The U-tip hair extensions are also not as easy to remove, and a glue bond remover must be used. If the tips are not installed the right way, it will not look good and they even might come off. That’s why we recommend that you leave the installation to the professional, at least for the first time.
Needs Refitting Every Two to Four Weeks
Although the hair itself can last for a very long time, the U-tip hair extensions still need to be refitted every couple of weeks because your hair grows. That is done by taking the U-tip hair extensions off and installing them higher up, closer to the roots.
Fusion extensions require you to be a bit more careful because there is glue involved. When washing the hair, avoid scrubbing too much around the bonds and using water that’s too hot because that could dissolve the glue. Brushing the hair also might be tricky because the roots need to be avoided. For lowest maintenance hair extensions, we recommend clip-ins.
Sleeping with Fusion Extensions Takes Getting Used To
When having Remy U-tip extensions installed, the hair needs to be protected in some way while sleeping. Just letting the strands loose will result in awful tangling, matting, and possibly detached strands. It is recommended that you wear a sleeping cap, a scarf around the head, or at least make a braid. This will protect the strands while you toss and turn in your sleep. It might take getting used to, but it’s actually a much better way to sleep, even for your natural tresses.
While each extensions type has its pros and cons, it’s easy to see how the positive outweighs the negative. Consider all the points carefully before buying and installing U-tip hair extensions and determine whether it is the right method for you. You can also contact a hair professional to assess which method is the best one for your hair type. Luckily, there are so many extension types to choose from. AiryHair offers more than 8.

How to Apply U-Tip Human Hair Extensions
We’ve designed our U-tip extensions to be as simple to apply as possible. Here’s how:
1. First, we recommend you ask a friend or hairstylist for help, if needed. Be sure to choose U-tip extensions that best fit your natural hair for a seamless look.
2. Start by making a horizontal split in the neck region. Hold the upper section in place with a hair clip. Set out strands in the lower section as per the number of extensions you are going to wear. Keep the strands straight.
3. Proceed by attaching the “nail” extensions. Avoid setting them too close to the root, and keep a gap of at least 1.5 inches from the root. Otherwise, the extra hair could put stress on your scalp. Please note: since you are using real glue (to prevent hair from falling out), removal will be troublesome, so be sure you attach hair correctly.
4. Use the fusion connector to slightly melt the glue layer. One it is malleable, roll the glue between your fingertips to attach it firmly to your hair. You will have to attach extensions in at least three horizontal layers up to your temples. You may also want to add some side extensions.
For the best results, enlisting the assistance of a stylist can help you achieve a perfect look.

I love the hair and wanted to order more..
However, is there some way that you can do a black keratin tip instead of the one used in my previous hair bundles?
As far as the hair itself I have never had such beautiful manageable long lasting extensions ever. Airy hair has a remarkable product with the exception of that clear yellowish tip. (Posted on 1/11/2017)
