What Are Tape-In Hair Extensions?

Imagine having long, flowing locks all day, every day for at least 8 weeks. No more spending 30 minutes of your morning fiddling with clip-in hair extensions, tape-In extensions offer luscious hair on a semi-permanent basis. 

How Do Tape-Ins Work?

Although you can install tape-in extensions yourself – hair extension brand, ClipHair, highly recommends getting your tape-in hair extensions installed professionally for best results. The whole process takes around two hours, but considering the results last 8-10 weeks, it’s totally worth it!

The procedure is quite simple – a professional stylist places the tape underneath a small section of your hair root and tapes in the extension. Don’t worry, the scalp is avoided to protect the hair root and to provide the utmost comfort.

Tip: If you choose Remy human hair you can curl, straighten and blow-dry the extensions just like natural hair. You can also dye (but not bleach) Remy hair if you fancy a colour refresh. We love Cliphair’s Remy tape-in hair extensions because they are easy to clean, stay soft, glossy and won’t mat.
