Tape Hair Extensions are undoubtedly the best method on the market for most extensionists and clients right now. Tape ins are the method of choice throughout the hair extensions industry. Celebrities and fashion icons are all moving to tape in hair extensions. Why? Because tape hair extensions are super fast to apply, easy to maintain, and feel virtually weightless to the wearer. For those new to extensions or individuals wanting to switch from clip in hair extensions or individual hair extension methods, tape hair extensions are the ideal choice.
Tape hair extensions are non-damaging. Tape hair extensions are easy to wear and maintain. Made from the highest quality luxury Russian Mongolian hair, our Root Mimic Hair Extensions are not only the best on the market; they are super discreet in the hair. As each strand of Remy human hair is injected separately into the tape, they replicate human hair root growth. Tapes are colour coordinated so as not to be seen. As each tape is 2.5g in weight, volume and length can be added in a very short time. They can be worn for 6-8 weeks before retaping is carried out. Our hair extensions aftercare range is specially designed for use with our Root Mimic Tape Hair.
1. Tape Hair Extensions are Invisible and Flexible:
As tape in hair is so thin, it is far less detectable in the client’s hair. The surgical grade soft tapes lie flat to the head without any bulk at the root. They are so versatile and there are so many styling options available when using tape extensions that cannot be achieved as easily with clip ins for example. It is possible to wear them in a variety of hairstyles such as super high ponytails and updos.
Tape in extensions are so flexible in the hair that the wearer can barely feel them; when brushing the hair, washing the hair or just wearing them day to day.
Another advantageous factor with tape in hair extensions compared to individual hair extensions is that during shampooing, blow-drying and styling tape extensions are quicker to dry and stay flatter. With other individual strand hair extension methods, hair tends to stay in thicker strands and it can take longer to blow-dry excess water from the hair, in order to style. Tape hair extensions really are a great choice.
2. Tape Hair Extensions Are The Least Damaging Hair Extensions Method:
Tape in extensions are considered the least damaging hair extensions application method on the market. The fact that tape in hair extensions are so lightweight, means they will not pull on the client’s hair. As more extension hair is distributed across the mini weft, the weight of the tape in hair is more evenly distributed across a wider section of the cients own hair. Our Root Mimic Tape Extensions are 4cm wide so this gives an even distribution of the hair extensions weight.
Tape hair extensions grow down very successfully with the natural hair. As tape in hair extensions sit flat against the head, they are not prone to twisting and tangling near the root. There is less chance of stray hair wrapping around the tops of tape hair extensions. As the tape in hair growns down, the extension wefts still remain flat against the head, but can easily be removed. Even those clients with fine hair can successfully wear tape in hair extensions without fear of damaging their own har.
Tape in hair extensions cause no discomfort. Additionally, tape in hair extensions will not cause hair loss if correctly maintained. They are super comfortable.
3. Tape Hair Extensions are More Cost Effective:
Tape in Hair Extensions are often more affordable to clients as they incur a lower application costs than other single strand hair extensions methods, such as fusion or micro ring extensions. This is because of the quicker, more simple application methods. Far less of the technician’s time needs to be booked out for tape hair application or tape hair maintenance. Each tape in extension is 2.5g in weight. This means that each tape in hair ‘sandwich’ is 5g. Therefore volume can be achieved very quickly. When applying tape in hair extensions 5g of hair, i.e. just two tape in extension pieces can be applied much quicker than 5 or 6 single strand prebonded extensions.
Similarly, maintenance appointments will be cheaper too, due to the ease of removal and refitting tape in hair. Salon owners love tape in extensions, as a shorter section of a stylists column needs to be booked out for each tape in fitting. This means that more clients can pass through each chair, for a faster more cost effective turnover and better salon returns.

5. Tape Hair Extensions are Low Maintenance:
Tape in extensions are by far the easiest hair extension method for clients to maintain. This is because of their super thin and relatively wide construction compared to other single strand extension methods. Once applied, the tape in hair extensions can simply be shampooed as normal and need less time for drying and maintaining. They will not tangle at the tops. As they grow down, they are easily removed and reapplied. Tape hair extensions feel virtually undetectable, and most clients love the fact they are so convenient when brushing and styling.
