Tape-in Hair Extensions
Tape in Hair Extensions are the latest hair extension trend on the market! They are designed to give added volume, length, thickness, and color free options for undeniable confidence. Tape-in hair extensions are made up of one-inch broad pre-taped hair wefts. The thin taped wefts tape-in between your natural hair to create a "sandwich-type" bond. They are safe, non-chemical and the most requested type of hair extension method, simply because they stay secure and discreet, appearing like your own natural hair. This method is 100% natural, requires no chemicals or tools, and can last anywhere from 6 weeks to three months with proper care. The best part? The hair is reusable! When it is time for the maintenance, they simply get removed, retaped and then reapplied. This can be done in one session, or broken up into two sessions.

Why Choose Tape-in Hair Extensions?
1. Reasonably Priced
Tape-in hair extensions are the most cost-effective option out there! They are semi-permanent and a stunning solution to your hair care concerns. I personally have priced out tape-ins from salons in Morris, Bergen and Passaic Counties, to individuals all over New Jersey and I can assure you I am the most reasonably priced for the quality of work you will receive!
Tape-in extensions are made with some of the best non-damaging adhesives, allowing you to rock your desired hair style for a long period. Besides the adhesive, the hair itself is pretty long-lasting when taking the appropriate precautions. Always use hair extension shampoos, conditioners, heat protection sprays etc. ALWAYS purchase 100% Remy human hair, which is just as durable as your natural hair. With proper care and maintenance, tape-in extensions can last you around 6 weeks to 3 months before needing to be retaped and reinstalled. High quality hair can last up to a year, while lower grade quality hair might need to be repurchased after 3 to 6 months.
3. Easier To Maintain
Instead of having to clip in and remove your hair each time you want to get ready, tape-in hair extensions are already there. Since they are taped in, you can save time when getting ready in the morning! However, keep in mind that these tape-in extensions do call for proper maintenance, but maintaining them is just as straightforward as caring for your normal hair. With natural hair, you can probably get away with brushing once or twice a day, but with tape-in hair extensions, you might want to brush them more frequently to avoid tangling and this is because the hair rubbing together may cause friction. Waiting to detangle your extensions at the end of the day can cause them severe damage, knotting and unnecessary stress and pulling on the bonds. Investing in a wet brush is a very gentle way to brush your hair more frequently with being too harsh. Pro Tip: Always place your hand over the bonds to prevent loosening and pulling when brushing and styling. Another method is gathering your hair as if you were going to put it into a pony tail and brush from that point down, to avoid pulling on your bonds.
4. Instant Volume And Length
One of the main benefits of tape-in extensions is, of course, that you get more hair instantly verse other types of extensions. If you have concerns regarding your hair length or volume, you can easily achieve those luscious longer, thicker locks with tape-in hair extensions. The entire process usually takes less than 2 hours!
5. Wearable Everywhere
Another reason why so many girls and women prefer tape-in hair extensions is you can wear them in the shower, or when swimming and even at the gym. With other types of extensions, you first have to remove the hair to be able to participate in such activities, which is not only time-consuming but also frustrating---plus a lot of the other hair extension options hurt, rip at your scalp and cause damage! Tape-in hair extensions are absolutely pain free and non-damaging! They can also survive moisture, which means you'll save a lot of maintenance and time. You can wear these extensions in any style imaginable. Personally as a mother of small children myself, during the week my hair is usually up in a bun or ponytail, and even then they are virtually undetectable, plus you don't even feel them at all!
6. More Versatile Hair
Tape-in hair extensions make your hair immediately more versatile. The possibilities are endless. There are numerous hairstyles that you can achieve, including:
- Long beach waves
- Sleek ponytails
- Top Knots
- Messy Buns
- Amazing Curls or Waves
- Sleek & Straight
- A full blowout, and so much more!
One huge benefit of tape-in hair extensions is you no longer have to worry about your extensions slipping off in the midst of an important meeting, event, important date, party, wedding or outing.
Just relax and rock those beautiful locks!
The wefts are lightweight and super thin. They don't pull on your hair, lay flat against your head and can be cut and styled in any way you please without adding to the weight. One ecstatic client who switched to tape ins (from wearing heavy weft pieces attached by microlinks) told me after only wearing her new tape ins for just a few days, " I feel FREE! It's like they are MY own hair! I don't feel them at all!" You can see her full 5-Star review in detail on my facebook page!
Ready to Get Started? Contact Creative Faces by V Today...but first some helpful hints.
Since tape-in hair extensions do not require special tools, they can be applied without the help of a stylist, although I do not recommend doing it yourself. I have over 20 years experience in getting every type of hair extensions out there on the market. I can help you to achieve your look, feel AMAZING and more confident than ever before in as little as two hours! You might not have been able to comfortably afford them before, but now you can! If you have been getting extensions for years or you are a beginner, you should keep in mind the following points about tape-in extensions that will help you create the optimum look, with my help of course!
1. Get Sufficient Quantity
Hair is measured in grams, so you need to make sure you know how many grams are present in one tape-in set. This is because it is not enough knowing how many pieces are there in a set; even though a set may have 10 pieces, they may be light-weight and not have a lot of volume to them. If you wish to go for much lighter (thinner) extensions, then make sure to get sufficient quantity. Similarly, if your hair is thick or if you’d like crazy hair volume, then purchasing plenty of tape-in hair extensions will properly do the job. Most tape in hair comes in sets of 20 individual taped pieces, which will be only 10 bonds (keep in mind they are applied like sandwiches, with your natural hair in between the tape wefts, therefore you need two pieces to make one bond. Usually 3 packs can do the average head. A quick 15-20 minute consultation to see your hair texture and discuss your hair goals can easily determine this. I can guide you in the process and make it very effortless!
2. Match The Color
Being off even by a shade could be a straight-up giveaway, unless you are trying to achieve the look of highlights, depth or lowlights. The most precise way is to color match, or purchase blonde extensions and they can easily be dyed to match your current color. I can assist with this, or do it for you for a reasonable fee added to your rate. Go with the shade that is the most evident in your original hair. If your hair is a mixture of different shades, it is best to first have the consult so we can determine the look you're trying to achieve.
3. Use High-Quality Human Hair
Don't shy away from splurging on a tape-in hair extension that is high-quality human hair. While synthetic extensions are the most affordable ones, they can get tangled easily and have an extreme shine coating to them (similar to "Barbie" hair), which may come off as fake. You also probably cannot use styling tools and have to be very careful. It is not worth the hassle and will ruin the experience. PLEASE buy 100% human Remy hair always! Non-virgin hair means that it has been processed – either treated to change the texture or processed, which could be more damaging and they might not last as long. Keep in mind that Remy human hair is the highest quality that you can find in tape-in extensions, and they are also closest to real human hair, meaning they will hold texture and style the same way as natural hair and won’t shed as much as compared to cheaper options. Go for 100% Remy extensions that will give you the most natural look, and you won’t have to worry about your hair looking odd, getting tangled up or looking unnatural.
As you wear tape-in hair extensions, your hair will continue to grow as it normally would, and that growth causes the hair extension and weft/bond to move further and further away from the scalp. For this reason, repeated maintenance every 6 weeks to 3 months for your retaping and touch-ups becomes necessary. The maintenance appointment will take longer than the initial application, as each bond will need to be removed, retaped and reapplied. Another reason to trust your professional and develop a long lasting relationship!
Why DIY Is Not A Good Idea: Contact Creative Faces by V!
Sure, tape-in hair extensions don't require the assistance of a stylist, actually you don't even need to be a licensed cosmetologist to learn or apply extensions at all, but it is still a good idea to see one, especially if you are new to working with hair extensions. As mentioned earlier I have over 20 years experience in all types of extensions however I only offer full head tape ins and colorful i-tip extensions for children and teens.

Step 1: Use the comb to pick up a thin slice of natural hair as wide as your tape extensions.
Step 2: Press the natural hair downward into the tape leaving about a 1 inch space between the scalp and the extension to assure easy movement and flexibility for styling.
Step 3: Peel away the second tape and place this piece directly over the first, sandwiching the natural hair in between and seal the tape with a tap of a flat iron for maximum adherence.
Step 4: Repeat for full head using specific
** I HIGHLY recommend you do not do this process yourself. If you are not trained in placement and have the experience, you can potentially damage to your own hair and scalp,
Tips to Remember:
1. Do not comb or brush the hair extensions while hair is wet. Never sleep with wet hair extensions
2. Make sure that do not wash your hair for at least 3 days after the application, otherwise it will cause slippage and your bonds will not set properly.
3. Every 6 weeks (sometimes earlier or longer as mentioned), your hair extensions will need to be reapplied to move the bonds closer to the scalp and to keep your own hair healthy. Keeping up with your maintenance is very important.
4. When using conditioner, condition from mid-shaft to ends only. Do not apply conditioner to your scalp where the tape in hair extensions are bonded-- as the conditioner will break down the bond tape.
5. Tape in hair extensions can easily be removed with the extension remover and do not damage your natural hair.
6. It is recommended to sleep with your hair lightly secured in order to prevent tangling of the hair and the bonds. I personally pull all my hair to one side and wear a side braid when sleeping, the added bonus--awesome waves in the morning! Also a loose bun or low loose ponytail also works
