A Quick Guide to Hand-Tied Tape-ins And How To Use Them
Any hairstylist worth their salt probably knows about the great debate between hand-tied hair extension wefts and tape-ins. Which one is the best for a hairstyle? Which one is easier to use? So many questions!
And a good hairstylist would know that both hair extensions have their merit. Yes, hand-tied wefts blend in better with hair extension styles and are generally lighter. But, they’re also the costliest amongst hair extension prices. Tape-ins on the other hand, are cheaper and way easier to install. It’s a tough choice.
But what if your clients didn’t have to choose? What if you had the best of both worlds?
We’re talking Hand-Tied Tape-In hair extensions. Awesome, right? Let’s learn more!
What are hand-tied tape-ins?
Hand Tied Tape-In Extensions are created by hand-tying strands of hair and attaching them to a tape weft base. It is an intricate process that combines the flexibility and thinness of the hand-tied hair extension with the ease and affordability of classic tape-ins. The end result is a tape-in that’s thin and delicate enough to naturally blend with the original hair.
The tape wefts are thinner than the classic tape-ins and lighter too. In fact, hand-tied tape-ins are an awesome choice and the only extension that comes close are Invisible Injected Tape-in Extensions.
How to install Hand-tied Tape-in hair extensions
You don’t need any special training to work with hand-tied tape-ins. They are installed like your classic tape-ins but with greater care for the strands. All you need to do is:
- Make sure your client’s hair is clean.
- Start at the neckline, or close to it.
- Part the hair into sections thick enough to hold the tape.
- Apply the hair and first tape 3cm below the intended part.
- Add pressure to the weft
- Then sandwich the hair with another tape on top. Make sure they are aligned and touch each other.
And that’s how you apply hand-tied tape-ins.
But that’s not all. A hair extension salon is only as good as the hair it sells. If you use bad tape-ins on your clients, they’d be horrible no matter how careful you are. Using quality hair like GoodYard hand-tied tape-ins will ensure that your clients hair turns out perfect, and stays that way.
