Ahh hair extensions - a woman’s best kept secret! Fortunately, hair extensions aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. Hair extensions have been in style dating back to Cleopatra, and are still a woman’s best accessory today! Back in ancient Egyptian times women wore wigs, sewn-on hairpieces and braids that were made of human hair and dyed sheep’s wool. Luckily, hair extension methods have improved drastically since the days of Cleopatra. However, with all the extension methods available today, how does one decide which method to go with? Here at Philocaly, we’ve tried all the methods of hair extension applications throughout the years including hand tied + wefts, keratin tips, clips - you name it! Tape-in hair extensions are one of the most popular methods of hair application in the world today and for good reason!
What are Tape-In Hair Extensions?
Philocaly tape extensions are strips of clear, double-sided tape, which are attached to premium Remy hair. These 4 cm tapes are then sandwiched in-between sectioned pieces of hair to create a look that even the Victoria Secret angels would envy. Because the tape is extremely flexible and light, you can still style your hair into your favourite looks such as high ponytails and topknots! In fact, tape extensions are so light and comfortable that you may even forget you are wearing them.
Will People Know That I Am Wearing Hair Extensions?
Your secret is safe with us! Tape-in hair extensions are so discrete that no one will be able to tell you are wearing them. Our tape-in hair extensions are made of 100% Remy human hair, which means the hair will look just like your own (just a lot fuller and longer). Also, you can curl and straighten your hair extensions just like you would with your natural hair. Therefore, no one will know you are wearing hair extensions but everyone will notice your new look!
Will Tape-In Hair Extensions Damage My Hair?
No- really it’s true! If you have tape in hair extensions applied correctly and treat your hair with care, tape in hair extensions will not damage your natural hair. This method is 100% natural and requires no chemicals or tools. Tapes are the least damaging semi-permanent application method on the market today!
How Are Tape-In Hair Extensions Applied?
Gone are the days of sitting in a salon for 8 gruesome hours for your hair extensions to be applied. The application process for tapes is done by placing two hair extensions onto each other with your natural hair in between. This technique is called the “sandwich” technique. Tape extensions take approximately 30-45 minutes for a full application – Seriously that’s it! A trained professional should always install tape extensions and we recommend using one of our Certified Stylists for the best application.
Are Tape-In Hair Extensions Expensive?
This method is very affordable. On average stylists charge $150 for installation in Canada. The reason it is so affordable is because of how quick the application takes. Tape-in hair extensions can also be reused and moved up. Therefore, you don’t constantly have to be buying new hair like other extension application methods in the market.
How Long Do Tape-In Hair Extensions Stay In?
Tape in hair extensions are applied close to the scalp. As your hair grows out, so will the tape bonds. On average you should have your tapes moved up every 6-8 weeks by a stylist.
