When it comes to hair extensions there are a few common requests that hair stylists hear all the time; they must look realistic, feel comfortable, and be easy to maintain. Introducing Tape in hair extensions! This easy method produces impressive looking results, in a truly low-maintenance manner that is easy on your scalp, and straightforward to look after. Where have tape in hair extensions been all our lives…

So what are Tape in hair extensions?

Thanks to their 100% natural application method, with no tools or chemicals required, Tape in hair extensions are quickly becoming the most requested type of hair extensions in hair salons today. Thin strips of clear double-sided tape are used to attach sections of Remy (Asian) human hair in between your own hair. The tape is very flat, flexible, and see-through. With a quick application time and a low-impact result on your existing hair, tape in hair extensions are Perth’s hottest hair trend, and Chilli Couture’s expert stylists are here to help.

What’s the maintenance?

As semi-permanent hair extensions they need a little more maintenance than some other extension types, but the results mean they have a 3-6 month guarantee. Each set of Tape in hair extensions stays in for 4-6 weeks, when they need to be removed and re-taped. Pretty straightforward! Thanks to the 100% Remy human hair used at Chilli Couture, each Tape in hair extension is re-usable for up to two further applications, making them high quality, and long lasting. Note that the time before reapplication varies on how fast the hair grows, and the condition the extensions have been kept in.

What’s the difference between tape in and weft hair extensions?

While Tape in extensions are the perfect semi-permanent option for most, weft hair extensions can provide a more long-lasting result. Weft extensions are attached directly to the hair at one end by being weaved, sewn, or braided into your natural hair, as opposed to being taped or clipped in. Also referred to as weaves, weft hair extensions are a very safe and versatile method to help give volume to fine hair. These work well as a longer lasting option than Tape in extensions.
