Tape hair extensions sometimes also called skin wefts are easy to apply, remove and maintain.
Virgin Russian hair, European hair, raw hair and Indian remy hair all with a high ratio are used to manufacture Twin Taped hair extensions at our facilities. Indian remy hair extensions are featured on this page and are most salon’s preference of human hair. High ratio hair gives your clients fullness throughout their hair extensions.
Waterproof, medical grade double sided tape has been pre-applied to each taped hair extension piece.
A small section of your client’s hair is sandwiched between two Twin Tape hair extensions. Use about 20 Twins for a full head of these taped extensions.
As an alternative, you may sew in extension clips to produce clip in hair extensions.
Virgin Russian hair can be used to produce custom made natural human hair extensions to your specifications including width, length, colour, curl and texture.
Full cuticle hair is another option, many call it European hair or European Grade hair.. ours does not compare. Throughout 2012 Lynne did extensive technical development to produce this natural, cuticle-correct hair in a way that promises just that: fully intact and correctly aligned cuticles. Lynne says: The hair supply industry has changed so much that the future depends upon exports. I’ve developed a manufacturing process which enables the demand for quantity to be met in a product resembling Caucasian hair or Russian hair. It was my 2012 goal and without this product I couldn’t see a future in human hair sales. The price is affordable to our new overseas retailers.
All our polyurethane Twin Tapes are manufactured by hand. Each 4cm wide piece has its top (root) end joined with PU 0.8cm in height. During our manufacture the polyurethane is meticulously applied to the extension hair in many layers and heat dried between each layer. Strength is built during this process.
On each taped hair there is a machine straight stitch across the top and bottom which adds further strength and durability enabling re-use by re-taping. The strips are cut into 4cm widths and their corners rounded to avoid ‘peeling’ during wear. The double-sided tape is high quality, hypo-allergenic, medical grade which has been used for decades to adhere men’s hair replacement hair pieces (toupées) to the scalp.

Pros & Cons
Quick, easy and re-usable. The hair stays inside the polyurethane minimising shedding.
They can be visible when placed higher up the head. Most people do not have a fall out issue but this system of hair extensions has a higher rate of fall out than other systems such as weaving in wefts, fusion, Power Rings and I-tips (Power Tips).
