Five Tools From Hairlocs You Need in Your 2023 Toolkit


2023 is right around the corner, and ensuring you’re prepared to take on the new year is crucial to set yourself up for success. Part of being ready means having all the tools you need to provide hair extension services successfully. While we are known for our quality hair extensions, we also wanted to spotlight some tools we think you’ll find especially handy in the new year. Make sure to pick these items up so you can start 2023 off on the right foot and continue to push the boundaries of what you thought was possible for your business. Please note: these are the general consumer prices. Once you become a verified stylist with Hairlocs, you will receive professional pricing. See our website or call us for more details. 


  1. Cylinder Threader, $20

The cylinder threader is especially useful when attaching I-Tip or Weft extensions. It is used to apply the cylinder to the natural hair to attach the extension. We always recommend preparing several threaders with cylinders pre-loaded before your client comes in to save time and make the appointment as seamless as possible.

  1. Complete Swatch, $50

Every stylist offering hair extensions should have a complete swatch on hand. The swatch is an excellent way to showcase the vibrancy of the hair, color, and texture options and ensure you get the best color match. Hairlocs Complete Swatch includes all 53 colors and four textures so customers can really achieve their desired look.

  1. Professional Heat Iron, $99.98

The K-tip heat tool is essential when installing k-tip extensions. The heat activates the keratin allowing you to bond it to and encase it around the natural hair safely.  It has adjustable heat settings that allow you to control how fast it heats the keratin.

  1. Hair Extension Solvent, $18

Whether doing a Tape-in or K-Tip removal, or simply making adjustments and cleaning up your work, the Hair Extension Solvent is a must-have for both systems. This solvent quickly and easily removes your tape-ins or k-tips without leaving any residue.

  1. Weft Cylinders, $7.98

Hairlocs’ new wefting cylinders have the same high quality as our I-Tip cylinders. With a copper and aluminum emulation, these cylinders are lightweight and flat but still durable. When using the cylinders, a thin silicone lining cushions and protects the client’s hair while wearing them. You can get multiple uses out of them, coming in four colors to best match the extensions used.

We also wanted to spotlight the Hairlocs Starter Starter Toolkit. With a 5-star rating, this product delivers. For only $149, get everything you need to do professional hair extension installs in all four systems.

The kit includes the following:

  • Black Matte Toolkit (crimper, shears, razor, and a holster)
  • Pro Wefting Kit - Small Wefting Scissors, C-Needle, double-pronged clips & nylon thread
  • K-Tip Heat Iron & Heat Shield Protectors
  • Tape Solvent & Replacement Tape

So for under $200, you could have all the tools you need to start. This is an excellent buy if you are new to extensions and looking to add them to your service capabilities in 2023.
