#1 Sectioning The Hair

So for this classic installation that I’m going to be doing. I’m sectioning off the hair to make it easier to diagram and map. I’ve sectioned off the front two because I’m not going to get there until at least row three. Now that I’m here in the back. I will start at the nape and work my way up.

#2 Remove Flyaways

My first section will be horizontal. Now that I’ve sectioned her hair. If your client also is blonde and my model’s hair is nice and healthy. She is blonde, and her hair is nice and healthy. So you are going to have some flyaways from time to time. You want to be careful with these.

As you install, they could become into the cylinders and create crosshairs. It can be very irritating. So what I’m going to do is I’m going to take my flyaway strip right through here. I’ve clipped the hair up nice and neat. So I’m just going to take my flyaway strip. You put it at the bottom of your section, push it up, make it nice and clean, and take those flyaways away.

#3 Emphasize Color

If your client just got her color done and her hair is gorgeous, what you want to do is to accentuate that. So I suggest you can do something between ombre and balayage like somber. Now so what I’m going to do is I’m going to put the light down here on my first couple of rows, then I’m going to intertwine some darker pieces, and then I’m going to end with that light again to give her that soft dimension. But brighten her up down towards the bottom.


  • 100 Human Hair. Now that I’ve started my installation, I want to give you a tip extensions. with the Jiffy’s hair, it’s 100 human hair, and the quality is very, very strong and high. So I prepped the hair by purple shampooing it. Because, as I said, she just got her hair done. So her toner is nice and fresh. The hair has been sitting in the bag for a little while. So I wanted to fluff it up with the Jiffy hair extensiosn. Once you shampoo it, it gives it that body and volume you’re looking for. So I prepped the hair by purple shampooing it and giving it a clean blow-dry so that it mimics what she has in her hair right now. If your client has this type of hair, consider this treatment.
  • More Cylinders on Bottom, The More Needed for Entire Head. I’ve now completed my first row, so I want to point out a few tips. You can already see that her hair is melting in with those extensions. Something to look at more during your consultation, but it’s something to realize through your application. The more cylinders and hairs you can fit in the bottom, the more extension hair you’ll need for the head. So when doing your consultation, take a look at this nape section and try to gauge how many cylinders you can fit inside this row. Because if you can fit a lot of cylinders here, you’ll need more double, almost triple through the top up through here, rather than less, and that could make or break your application on how dense, and full your hair looks.
  • Keep Cylinders Hidden. Now the other thing I wanted to point out is that you want to double-check and make sure when your client pulls their hair up, it will not be seen. So what you can do is gauge leaving one to two fingers around the hairline, and then I’m going to grab her hair here. I’m going to pull it straight up as if she’s going to pull it into a pony, and you’ll notice you cannot see any of those cylinders. They’re completely hidden, so you left enough space underneath to cover that as you go forward.

#4 Emphasize shapes

so now I’m going to continue up the head.

You’ll notice with my second row. It is slightly different than my first row. In my first row, I took horizontal sections that are going to help create that maximum density. In section two, I’ve worked from behind the ear to behind the ear, and I’m now in a u-shape. This is going to help emphasize the natural structure of the head.

#5 Rubberized Tips

So as I’m installing. Some people are afraid to crimp it too tight. This could be a factor depending on the type of quality of hair that you’re working with. So with Jiffy Hair, the tip of the extension is rubberized or fancy word polyurethane. So what that means and why that is important is. Because when I stick the tip inside the cylinder here and I break it down and pinch it right here, that i-tip extensions will then fill the entire cylinder and cushion the client’s hair. Not all individual extensions are like this. Often, they have more of a hard coating or a plastic coating. So that when you crimp it tight, it’s going to break down, and it’s also harsher on the client’s natural hair. So finding that good quality 100 human hair extensions will be essential for your application, the longevity of your client’s hair, and how long you can wear these extensions.

#6 Deep-U-Shape, Allows for More Hair.

So now then, I’m approaching my third row. Depending on the situation or how many bundles you need to fit into your client’s head. You can alter your sections just a little bit. So with my model here. I’ve done more of a deep u where I’m like more scooping. That will allow me to fit more hair inside my client’s head. If this was just a classic install, or I was doing about four bundles, I would go with a softer one that’s not as deep and dramatic. Adding that deepness allows you to add more hair in. she’s naturally got that dense hair, so we’re probably going upwards of six bundles.
