Our story 

Charlotte Quinn and Gary Howe founded North Professional Hair in March 2020, to build a reliable, transparent and respectable tape hair extension brand, exclusively for professionals.

Charlotte, who has over a decade long experience as a salon owner and tape hair extension specialist, provides invaluable insight into the salon industry. This experience enables North to maintain a salon-focused approach to business, ensuring quality and trendability. 

Gary has endless business expertise, especially within the hair extension industry, with an understanding of proven first-class logistics and reputable manufacturer relationships. 

With combined knowledge and expertise, the pair made the perfect partnership to deliver high-quality hair at a competitive price.

Our commitment  

Please read our commitment to our customers:

First Class Customer Service

Let's face it we’ve all been there; things go wrong. North prides itself in its first-class customer service - our team will always work hard and try to resolve any issues you may have.

A growing wealth of knowledge

We strive to be industry thought leaders and are relentless in our pursuit of this. We are an open book with our knowledge and will always share our tips of best practice. We are dynamic and practical with our solutions and give real skills that will work in your business.

What do we supply?

North Professional Hair tape extensions are double-drawn 100% Remy human hair, meaning that the hair is the same thickness from root to tip with a closed cuticle. North Professional Hair tape extensions are mostly sourced from villages in the southwest of China.

We strive to support the people of these villages as much as we can, as these people take great pride in selling their hair and deserve the benefits it brings to both them and their communities. 

Our products are produced using only the healthiest hair, which enables us to supply the ultimate premium quality product for our customers. We also use the highest grade ‘heat free’ tape adhesives or ‘tape tabs’, which are rigorously tested in the UK (as to our commitment as a UK-based brand).

North Professional Hair tape extensions

North Professional Hair stocks three different types of tape hair extensions, that meet a variety of different client-hair needs.

What are original tapes?

Original tapes are generally considered to be one of the most popular and affordable options for hair extension applications. They are also our most versatile type of tape, with the greatest shade range. North Original Tapes are made with a translucent adhesive, which allows the tape to blend and sit comfortably with the natural hair.

Original Tapes are also compatible with our other types: Invisible Tapes and Root Glaze Tapes.

What are invisible tapes?

North Invisible Tapes were designed to be virtually invisible when installed. The specialised technique of applying the hair into the attachment provides an almost invisible seam. Invisible Tapes blend seamlessly with the client's re-growth, resulting in a more natural and realistic finish.

Invisible Tapes are the ideal option for clients with fine or thin hair, creating the illusion that the hair extension is growing directly from the scalp.

What are invisible root glaze tapes?

North Invisible Root Glaze Tapes use the same specialised attachment as the Invisible Tapes, but have a bespoke-coloured root created by technical colour experts to imitate natural hair colour. This helps the extensions blend in with the client’s hair, whilst adding depth and the illusion of thicker hair.

The bespoke coloured root in Invisible Root Glaze Tapes creates a realistic, lived-in look that is used to give a seamless grow-out effect - perfect for lower-maintenance clients.
