Fusion Techniques

There are several types of fusion techniques that can be used to apply human hair extensions. They are as follows:

Pre-Tipped Hair with a Fusion Tool: You use pre-tipped hair with a heated Fusion Tool. The pre-tipped hair already has the glue on each strand so you would just simply place the glued strand at the base of your hair (close to your scalp) and use the Fusion Tool to melt the glue onto your hair. Some stylists prefer to use the Teflon Fusion Tubes as well as the glue on the I-strands to better adhere the extensions. Be sure to use a Fusion Shield to protect your client’s scalp from hot glue!

Pre-Tipped Hair with Tubes/Pliers: You use I-strand pre-tipped hair with Fusion Tubes and Fusion Pliers. A Fusion Hook is used to place the tubes at the base of your hair (close to your scalp). You place the I-strand inside the tube and use the pliers to clamp the Copper Fusion Tubes or you can use the Fusion Tool to melt the Teflon Fusion Tubes, securing the extension and your hair.

Bulk Hair with Glue Sticks: You use bulk hair (hair with no weft or tip) and Glue Sticks. Take a small group of your hair and a small group of the extension hair. Either use a Fusion Glue Gun or a Fusion Glue Pot to melt the sticks and place a small amount of glue at the tip of the extension. Place the extension tip at the base of your hair (close to your scalp). Be sure to use a Fusion Shield to protect your client’s scalp from hot glue!

Bulk Hair with Tubes/Pliers: You use bulk hair (hair with no weft or tip) and Fusion Tubes. Take a small group of your hair and a small group of the extension hair. Place both groups of hair inside the Fusion Tubes and use the Fusion Pliers to clamp the Copper Fusion Tubes or you can use the Fusion Tool to melt the Teflon Fusion Tubes, securing the extension and your hair.

Rinex Fusion: For use ONLY with the Rinex Fusion Hair. Place the Rinex loop near the scalp and pull a small group of hair through. Gently pull the grip down so the hair threads through the tube. Once the Rinex strand is in place, use Fusion Pliers to clamp the tube, securing the strand to your hair.

Tubex Fusion: For use ONLY with the Tubex Fusion Hair. Place the Tubex loop near the scalp and pull a small group of hair through. Gently pull the grip down so the hair threads through the tube. Once the Tubex strand is in place, use the Fusion Tool to melt the tube to the hair.We suggest that you purchase a Fusion DVD that contains all of the above fusion techniques as well as hair preparation, application, removal and maintenance to ensure you are properly applying, removing and caring for the extensions.
