Tape in Extensions

Tape in hair extensions is the newest method of extensions available.  With double-sided tape, the weft is applied to the hair after the backing has been removed from one side.  The weft and the attached hair are pulled upwards, and another weft is applied to the other side of the tape to “sandwich” the hair.

Budget  $

The cost for tape-in extensions can vary depending on the brand, type of hair, stylist’s application fee and number of boxes or panels of hair. See our hair extension pricing guide.

Pros

  • Fastest method of application. Volume applications take 20-30 minutes and full-length application 45-60 minutes.
  • No heat or tools required for an application.
  • Panels lay flat on the head, virtually undetectable. Suitable for thin, fine hair.
  • The safest method of hair extensions available, as the weight of the panel is spread out over a larger area, causing no (or little) damage to the client’s hair.
  • Reusable method of extensions, lasts between 6-8 weeks.

Cons

  • You can’t wash your hair or excessively sweat for 24-48 hours after application as the bond needs time to cure and adhere properly to the hair.
  • The use of any silicone or oil based products directly on the adhesive may cause the panels to slip.

Maintenance

Avoid any silicone or oil-based products at the root of the hair.  Brush hair daily from root to tip.  Style hair as normal. The extensions needs to be removed approx every 6 weeks and be moved up (use can re use the same hair one or two times)
