TAPES

INVISIBLE AND FAST

Volume or length in under an hour

Our revolutionary, ultra-slender tape-in extension system gives a full head of hair in less than an hour. Each tape is dense but still light due to the fact that only Russian hair is used. A polyurethane adhesive tape creates a secure and comfortable bond yet allows for easy removal and reapplication. Hair is secured to the tape with double stitching across the tape base which greatly extends the life of the tapes. These cleverly designed tapes combined with professional installation ensures that the weight is distributed cross multiple strands of hair, preventing the tapes from ever putting stress on your natural hair.

Advantages of Tapes

  • Length and volume can be achieved quickly (20-30 minutes for volume and 45-60 minutes for length)
  • Perfectly suited for those with fine hair
  • Only extension system using adhesive that are reusable and non-damaging
  • Ability to add colour quickly without bleaching or dyeing your hair
  • Tapes are ultra-thin, so they’re comfortable, versatile and invisible

Application and Removal

Tape extensions applied by removing the backing from the weft exposing the polyurethane and laying a thin veil of hair over the top. A second weft is applied directly on top of the first weft, “sandwiching” the natural hair in between. The removal is just as easy and only requires tape-in extension remover and a pintail comb. The tape adhesive dissolves on contact with the remover allowing the gentle removal of the tapes. Then the residual adhesive is removed, the hair is washed and dried while our Extensionists will apply the new adhesive tape so that the tapes can be reapplied, just like before. Tatiana Karelina recommends that you wear, subject to hair growth, the tape extensions for 6–8 weeks before need to be repositioned.

What are tape extensions?

Tape extensions are one of the newest hair extension trends on the market. Tape in hair extensions are thin hair wefts, about 1” inch wide pre-taped hair wefts, that get taped-in in between your own hair. 2 tapes are used together to sandwich your natural hair. This method requires no tools or chemicals and lasts up to 6-8 weeks before the tapes need to be lifted. With good quality tapes, made from Russian hair, tapes can be reused 2-3 times. Length and volume can be achieved quickly (20-30 minutes for volume and 45-60 minutes for length).

How are our tapes different?

Unlike other ranges of tape-in extensions, mass-produced in China, available in 55 colours and then re-labelled as Russian hair before sold to the customer our tape-in extensions are the only ones on the market that use genuine Russian hair. Our tapes are made in small batches and our colour line is achieved not with dye but by blending multiple shades of natural hair by hand before it is sewn into each tape.

Are tapes suitable for fine hair?

Yes. Tapes were original designed for women with fine hair. If you have thin hair, tape in extensions are one of the best hair extension choices for you as they're thin and lightweight, so they won't be too heavy for your head.

Why are your tapes more expensive?

Simply put, because it is genuine Russian hair. Our tapes aren’t mass produced. We don’t have dozens and dozens of colours, ready to ship with express delivery. Salons and website that are advertising Russian tapes in C12, W11, C18 or any mixed colour or balayage are not selling Russian tapes. Russian hair is simply too scarce and too expensive to use to create a mass market line of tapes. While these tapes might be of decent quality they should not be confused as Russian tapes.

Will tapes damage my own hair?

If installed by a professional and properly maintained, this method will not damage your hair.
