Updated: Oct 19, 2021

Hair extensions add length and thickness to your hair, making them perfect for those who aren’t able to grow their hair long or those who have thin hair.

There are various types of hair installation techniques, the most popular of which is keratin-tips. Also known as K-tip hair extensions, they have grown to popularity and have become our most demanded hair extension service.

If you’re considering getting K-tip hair extensions installed, here are some pros and cons that you should know about:

Pros of K-tip extensions

Provide the most natural look

Keratin tip hair extensions provide, by far, the most natural look and feel to your hair. They are attached to the hair with keratin bonds in tiny sections. They blend into your natural hair well and cannot be detected. So if you’re out and about and there’s a breeze, you don’t have to worry about your hair extensions showing.

Can be styled however you like

K-tip hair extensions allow for 360 degree movement, which means they can be styled any way you like. With other extension styles, you have to style them in a particular way to prevent the seams or beads from being visible. With K-tips you can confidently sport a sleek ponytail, half up dos, and other hair styles.

Maintenance costs are low

The maintenance of K-tip extensions is easier than other types of hair extensions. Once they are installed, you don’t have to worry about them. Just take care of them like your natural hair.


Installation takes a while

Since K-tip hair extensions have a natural look, their installation is very intricate. It takes a long time to carefully install these hair extensions, which might be a put off for certain clients. The application process can take a few hours, however, if you’re used to having your hair dyed at the salon, the waiting time isn’t much different.

At Home Maintenance

It is super important to brush the ktips daily using a double bristle brush on the point of attachment. You will section out each row and brush, making sure none of the pieces are getting tangled together.
