Luxury tiny tips give a small but secure fitment even for fine hair. Tiny tips are bonded with Italian keratin in small neat tips that do not break down like cheap resin. Tiny tips are a long standing popular method of hair extensions due to the application being completely free of heat or glue, making them easy to remove and re apply over and over without damage to the natural hair.
To fit the tiny tips you will need either:
Routes silicone lined micro rings, available in 9 different shades available here.
Routes copper tubes available in 9 different shades available here.
How much hair is needed for a full head:
Only a qualified hair extension specialist should decide how many strands or grams would be suitable for your hair by carrying out a consultation. However we have added an approximate guide below:
Fine hair full head: 125g ( x 5 packs )
Average thickness hair: 150g ( x 6 packs )
Thick hair: 200g ( x 8 packs )
Sourced and selected from Southern India. The hair is not over processed to ensure the cuticles of the hair lay correct and intact. This hair is the most natural to see and feel giving long lasting gorgeous locks. The Luxury range gives a full look and has a natural kink to its texture. As a result you will experience a thick full look however the hair will need styling either sectioned to straight or waved/curl. This will avoid a frizzy look. We do not recommend leaving the hair to air dry.
Luxury hair has an approximate lifespan of 6 months (up to 4 months for light blondes) tests have proven many cases have longer lifespans reported.
The lifespan of hair extensions is always dependant upon the end users lifestyle. The above guide is only as there is no definite lifespan due to hair extensions being a perishable product thats longevity depends greatly on the care of the user and the lifestyle of the user.
Our guide is based on sole use of the full range of Routes aftercare including:
Routes Hair Extension Shampoo
Routes Hair Extension Conditioner Routes Protein Spray.
Use of any alternative aftercare products will likely severely reduce the lifespan and will void any quality guarantee once fitted.
Ethically purchased at the top market value to ensure donors are fairly compensated. Hair is only purchased from consenting adults to ensure there is no underpayment nor child exploitation in practice. Sourced from South India.
We always advertise with full disclosure and integrity and we always recommend customers to fully be informed of the true description of what they are purchasing. Many brands are falsely advertising hair as Russian/Mongolian hair when there is simply no such thing. For more info on this topic please visit the Advice/FAQ page and scroll to “ Where do hair extensions actually come from?”.
Aside from the strict selection process at the source, our factory will perform many quality control tests to ensure the hair meets the standard for Luxury Hair. After each step of processing from bleaching to colouring there will be testing carried out to ensure the hair still has its cuticles in tact and that the processing has had minimal damage to the hair. Hairs that have their cuticles stripped or damaged enough to effect the quality or lifespan of the hair is discarded at this stage and will not be packaged or sold by Routes Hair.
After processing tests are completed the hair is drawn to remove shorter or loose hairs. An inspection is carried out to check the ratio of thickness is correct for Luxury Hair.
Checks are then made to ensure the hair colour matches the shade on the colour ring to ensure that any difference is so minimal it is not visible. If hair is a different tone to it’s matching colour swatch on the colour ring it is removed from the product line and will not be packaged for sale.
Once the method is determined (either weft, tapes or nanos) and attached the hair is then weighed per piece and per pack to ensure that every single gram is present.
Once the hair reaches our warehouse we then repeat the quality control checks on colour matching the shade swatch, the weight per pack and length correct as advertised. Anything that isn’t just so or hair that in any way feels defective does not reach out picking stations and is returned to the factory.
