If you follow me on Instagram, you know I do a lot of tape in extensions. My clients LOVE them. If you're looking for instant length and volume without spending a lot of time in the chair, you'll love them too. I prefer the HairTalk product line, the original tape in extension, for their quality, ease of application and removal, and gorgeous color palette!
HairTalk is the original Tape In Hair Extension
I've been working with HairTalk tape in extensions for years as a certified HairTalk stylist. When it comes to tape in hair extensions, HairTalk has got the technology down. Tape in extensions are sometimes referred to as seamless hair extensions or skin weft extensions because they are designed to be very discreet. HairTalk has developed the technology to simulate the look of hair growing from the scalp. Talk about a natural look! And their advanced bond technology is super gentle on the hair.
- Lightweight for length and volume without bulk.
- Extensions have that "I grew it myself" look
- Work for all hair types, even fine, thin hair
- Very easy and gentle removal
These tape in extensions are top quality.
These top of the line hair extensions are made with 100% human Remy hair that mimics European hair texture, making them a good match for my clients with fine or thin hair. They attach to the natural hair close to the scalp with a medical grade adhesive that is very gentle, not gummy or tacky like other brands. These extensions come pre-colored, although I can further customize by adding color. And because of the quality of the hair, it can be reapplied multiple times.
- Won't damage the hair
- Medical grade adhesive creates a watertight seal yet they're easy to remove in-salon
- Work for all hair types, even fine, thin hair
- Hair can be re-applied up to 3 times
- 5 to 6 months of total wear
I can create any look with this gorgeous color palette.
Mix and match from 70+ pre-colored options including natural shades, blondes, reds, silver/grey, color melts, balayage, rooted shades, and fantasy color. In fact, weaving in rooted and color melt shades is my secret to better blending to create a versatile and natural look.
Can I custom color these hair extensions? Yes. Apart from the Fantasy collection, which is made of synthetic hair to get that vibrant color, these extensions are made with human hair which can be colored. However, I prefer to only deepen the color, not highlight or use any lightener, in order to preserve their wear time. But with over 70 options, I probably don't need to color your hair extensions.
Tape in extensions are easy to apply and remove.
An efficient application means less time in the chair. I can install a full head of tape in hair extensions in about an hour. After I get your new extensions in place, I'll trim your hair so that they blend in perfectly and then style your hair for a perfect finish. Your extensions will need to be adjusted every 6-8 weeks. I'll gently remove each individual extension after dissolving the adhesive with a special solution and reposition them close to the scalp. Never attempt to pull out or comb out your tape in hair extensions at home.
- Maintenance every 6-8 weeks
- Can be re-applied up to 3 times
- Total wear of up to 6 months
Caitlin E Explains Tape In Extensions
Tape in extensions with varied band widths for a natural result.
HairTalk offers different sizes and densities for their tape in extensions so that I can customize the application based on placement, your hair texture, and the size of your head. This way I can create a very natural look without overwhelming the head with a disproportionate amount of hair.
- Original band sizes are ideal adding internal volume and are perfect for normal to thick hair types.
- Petite band sizes are ideal for use on top of the head or other highly visible areas, or for clients that have thinner hair.
- Mini band sizes are smaller yet and work well around the outside of the crown and around the face to give that ultra natural look.
- Original Plus and Petite Plus have hair drawn through the band for a more discreet bond, making it even easier to conceal wefts.
How long will tape in extensions last?
With proper care, your tape in extensions will last up to 6 months. I will send you home with care instructions so that you can maintain them at home. Because these hair extensions are attached, versus a temporary clip in style, it will be important to keep your hair moisturized and tangle free.
How much to tape in extensions cost?
The cost will depend on how much hair you require. It's impossible to quote an amount as the cost truly varies from person to person but I can tell you that tape in extensions are less expensive than a hand tied or fusion application because of the express application time. This will give you an idea of where tape in extensions fall on the cost spectrum as compare to other types.
|Type||Cost for Full Head|
|Hand Tied Wefts||$$$|
