Your Expert Guide to Zen Hair Extensions

Your Expert Guide to Zen Hair Extensions

Zen has a great understanding that every head of hair is different. This is why they offer three different application systems to ensure there’s an answer for every hair type, whether it be dry, oily, long or short. Their current collection consists of I-Tip, U-Tip, and Tape applications in a variety of 18 inch, 22 inch, and now 14 inch from their ultimate range collection. 

I-Tip extensions are made from original Italian Keratin for no-heat attachment with micro-rings. The tiny, alloy coated rings are compressed around the hair for a comfortable secure attachment. 


U-Tip extensions are one of the most popular methods used by professionals today. Made from Italian Keratin for fusion by heat, the extensions stay in the hair for several months.


Tape extensions are fast becoming one of the most popular systems amongst professionals due to the speed and versatility of the system. Hair is presented infused into a soft, thin and flexible polymer. It is pre-taped with a medical grade gel adhesive which adheres for 6-8 weeks. 


They must blend in to your natural hair colour

The biggest mistake with hair extensions is not matching them to your hair colour properly. This results in obvious differences between your natural hair and the extension. Zen Luxury Hair offers a range of 38 shades ranging from Brunette, to Blonde, to Ombre. Finding a set of extensions that suit perfectly to your hair is important so you can create that seamlessly blended look, and your Zen Extensions will go virtually undetectable. 

They should be made from Human Hair

Zen Extensions are made from 100% Virgin Remi Hair. This means the cuticles remain intact so that each strand flows in the same downward direction, resulting in less matting and tangling. It also means your hair extensions blend in with your hair for a much more natural look. Extensions can be either be human or synthetic but there’s a clear favourite for experts and the A-list alike.  For the most discerning of salon-goers, ”virgin” hair (never coloured or processed) is considered the crème de la crème for extensions. It can be coloured, curled, straightened, and cut in a way that lower quality hair cannot.

Aftercare is a must

Correct maintenance can make all the difference between your Zen Extensions lasting 3 weeks, to them lasting 3 months. Zen are on hand to assist with this by offering their very own range of Aftercare products. The range includes a sumptuous Shampoo, moisturising conditioner, and smoothing serum.  Free from sulphates, Parabens and sodium chlorate, the products have been specially formulated for use with Zen Hair’s Tape, U-Tip and I-Tip extensions to gently cleanse and condition the hair and scalp. Each product has been thoroughly tested to ensure the performance of your client’s hair extensions and to keep them looking as good as the day they were fitted!
