Applying Tape in Extensions

Applying Tape in Extensions

Here at Brooklyn Hair, we believe that applying tape in hair extensions is one of the easiest methods to do yourself and all at a small fraction of the professional cost.

How to apply Tape-in extensions by yourself?

Tapes are applied to the hair using 2 of the wefts sandwiched together with your own hair in-between. It is advised that the slice of hair in-between the tapes is very slightly smaller in width so that stray hairs do not hang out of the tab. The hair in-between the tape should also be of the same thickness as the tape itself to ensure the hair is able to hold the weight of the extension.

Applying any permanent extension to a too small amount of hair can cause damage and hair pull, it is always advised to mimic the weight of the weft/strand that you are applying. The placement of the tapes will totally depend on the look you are trying to achieve, the brickwork pattern is usually preferred for a natural finish.

We hope this short instruction was effective enough to motivate you to try and DIY. Also, there’s tons of YouTube tutorials to learn from.
