"When Tiger fitted my new extensions, I burst out crying. The person in the mirror looked like me again. My hair was always a signature thing for me before I lost most of it due to stress. The extensions are supernatural and lightweight, unlike any I had tried before. With the invisible tapes, I can confidently wear my hair up without the tell-tale signs of normal tapes. Without a doubt, it's the best transformation ever!"

How are tape hair extensions applied?

If you're interested in getting tape hair extensions, you can find a trained professional near you by checking out our salon locator. Once you've identified a specialist, you'll attend a consultation and colour-match appointment. On the day of your fitting appointment, you should arrive with clean, dry hair. The stylist will prepare your hair by smoothing out any waves or frizz, and then determine the best placement for the tapes based on your lifestyle. They will take a small section of your natural hair and perform the weaving technique, peeling off the tape from the extension piece, placing it under the weaved section, and sticking the weaved section of hair to the tape. They will then apply a second tape on top, creating a sandwich effect and seal using North professional hair plyers. They will repeat this process until the correct number of tapes is applied. Finally, they will blend, cut, and style your hair to perfection.

Will I need to wear Tape In Hair Extensions forever?

Some clients will wear tape hair extensions for the foreseeable, whereas other clients will wear tape hair extensions until their problematic issues are solved and the use of tapes is no longer needed. Tapes are the healthiest hair extension method on the market they are damage-free if fitted by a professional and if removed and maintained correctly. Tapes will need maintenance between 4-8 weeks depending on your initial hair consultation and the hair itself can be re-fitted for up to 9-12months with the correct use of aftercare products.

To keep your tape-in extensions in good condition for as long as possible, it's important to follow a regular maintenance routine. This means using shampoo and conditioner that are free of sulfates, which can cause damage to the tape. You should also be gentle when brushing your hair and avoid pulling or tugging on the extensions. When styling your hair, be careful with the heat settings and try to limit the use of heated tools to once a week. Always use heat protection sprays before styling.

It's essential to schedule and attend your maintenance appointments as requested by your fitting specialist. This will help ensure that your natural hair remains healthy and your extensions stay damage-free between appointments.

The difference between other extension methods on thin hair?

When it comes to fine hair, tapes are the best option. This is because each tape strand weighs only 4 grams per section, which is a compatible weight for the hair. In comparison, a weft of hair could weigh 50 grams and be on a small section across the back of the head creating tension and pain. You can achieve the same look using multiple tapes across multiple areas with even weight distribution on the client's hair. Tapes provide the least tension to the hair and scalp. They grow out super flat and tidy, leaving less risk of matting and breakage. They are comfortable straight after fitting and cause no pain or tightness when installed, unlike a weft.

When compared to micro rings or bonds they may weigh less, around 2 grams per strand. However, to create the same effect as a 4cm tape, you may need to use 6-8 micro rings or bonds. These methods are attached to less hair and have the opportunity to twist when being worn, creating tension, hair loss and breakage. There is also a risk of reaction to metal and bonds requiring less maintenance, leaving your clients wearing them for longer without salon visits. Upon removing these methods, you may see lots of shedding of the hair, potential matting, and breakage, especially when talking about fine hair.


If you are finding it difficult to love your natural hair and want to find a way to build self-confidence and create your dream hair, I suggest researching extension specialists in your area. You can then arrange a consultation with a tape hair extension specialist, who can guide you on the best options for your hair to create the look you desire.
