Tape extensions are still fairly new to the market and add another decision to your hair extensions journey. In this blog, I’ve pointed out 10 benefits of tape extensions to try and make your decision that little it easier.
1: FLAT AND SMOOTH
Tape extensions are the most discreet and easiest to wear, they sit flat against your scalp allowing for that seamless blend. They are perfect for those people who are conscious that people may be able to see the bonds and are constantly trying to cover unsightly micro rings or glue used in other methods. This method of extensions can be worn in any style and remain unseen if you wear your hair up often then these extensions are likely to be best for you.
2: REDUCED TENSION ON YOUR NATURAL HAIR
Because tape extensions are fitted along the natural curve of your scalp they also put less tension on your natural hair than other methods creating that flawless finish. In other methods of hair extension, application tension often occurs when you put your hair up, this is not the case with tapes as they are fitted in a way that allows full movement of the hair leading to no pulling or discomfort.
3: FAST APPLICATION
Tapes are perfect for those busy women on the go, they can be applied and styled in less time than it takes for you to get your weekly manicure! Tapes are the fastest application method with the average fitting taking less than an hour allowing you more time to look and feel fabulous!
4: PERFECT FOR FINE HAIR
As mentioned previously tapes are flat and reduce tension on your natural hair so they are the perfect method for those ladies with finer hair. As a hair extensions specialist there is nothing more disheartening than turning a fine haired client away because their hair would not cope with the tension of other methods, well tapes are the solution. The other benefit for those ladies with finer hair is that tapes are invisible, often fine haired ladies are conscious their natural hair won’t conceal the bonds well with tapes but you don’t have to worry about that!
5: EASY TO REMOVE
Tapes are as quick to remove as they are to put in, providing you use the correct removal solution and correctly trained professional. Once the removal solution is applied the tapes slide straight out with no pulling and leaving no residue.
6: CREATE BESPOKE COLOUR BLENDS
When using tape extensions you can always create the perfect blend with your natural hair by using 2 or 3 different shades to get the most natural look. They are also great for adding colour when you don’t want to chemically colour your hair and easy to remove when you’ve had enough with no damage to your natural hair.
Tapes can be worn time and time again, this can be in constant use or they can be added for special occasions such as weddings and holidays. Once you have your tapes removed your hair extensions specialist will be able to retape the hair and then it can be reapplied in exactly the same way.
8: WAKE UP AND GO
People often think hair extensions are hard work and difficult to maintain and this can be the case if you have an unsuitable method applied, however, with tape extensions this difficulty is eradicated! Once you have washed and styled your hair it can hold its style for days! This makes your morning routine super quick and easy so you can be ready and out of the door in no time!
9: EASY MAINTENANCE
Maintenance appointments come around quickly and can be a hassle, however it is super important that you attend them regularly. Tape maintenance appointments are no different and require removal, refit and a lovely wash and blow! Take the time to put your feel up and relax whilst your stylist works her magic.
10: CREATE THE LOOK YOU DESIRE
Tapes are a versatile method of extensions and can be used on everyone. If its length, volume or both that you’re looking for then tapes can create it. Many ladies are conscious of thinning hair around the front so 1 pack of tapes can be added to give the effect of full and luscious locks. If you desire a more dramatic look consisting of length and volume you can have a full head of tapes applied giving you the mane you truly want. If you want to add some extra length to your hair carefully placed tapes can add the length you have been longing for!
There really is nothing to lose with tapes.
