You asked, we listened – the world of hair extensions keeps on evolving, and every year more and more new hair extensions methods pop up. One that caught our eye pretty quickly is the Invisible tapes technology, a type of hair extensions that ensures discretion even in finer hair and gives more freedom to the wearer. Whether it's about adding length, volume, thickness, or even a hint of color, these hair extensions will be able to offer a gorgeous, long-lasting transformation in under two hours. How is it possible, and how are they different from regular tape ins? Read on to find out anything you need to know about invisible tape hair extensions today!
What Are Invisible Tape Hair Extensions?
Let’s get a bit technical: invisible tapes are, in all effects, a premium version of regular tape in hair extensions that caters to a larger audience. Featuring a polyurethane adhesive band that is discreetly hidden behind 100% Remy Royale human hair, they do categorise as permanent hair extensions. Just like regular tapes, invisible tape in extensions are applied by “sandwiching” a strand of natural hair between two invisible tape wefts. Each pack comes with a total of 50g of hair extensions, split in 20 wefts – or 10 sandwiches. Also known as: skin weft hair extensions or skin tape hair extensions, seamless tape hair extensions, and invisible weft hair extensions.
What does Remy Royale mean?
Remy Royale is the name of our double-drawn collection, a luxury selection made of hand-selected, high-quality strands. The hair in this category is treated and cuticle-aligned to be frizz-resistant and less prone to tangling, for a healthier-looking, shinier and more manageable finish.
Why are they called Invisible?
With the hair running all the way up to tab and covering it, they stay virtually undetectable even in finer hair, becoming the ultimate solution for those that are looking to add volume and fullness in their hair long-term but don’t have time for long nano ring hair extensions appointments.
How long do Invisible tape in hair extensions last?
The average makeover lasts around 8 to 10 weeks before needing a re-fit, but the same hair can be reused for more than just one appointment. These gorgeous double-drawn tresses, in fact, have an average lifespan that ranges from 6 to 12 months – when properly taken care of! Always remember not to use oil-based products near your scalp/adhesive tabs, as they can make the hair extensions slip off earlier than expected.
How are Invisible tape hair extensions fitted?
Just like their cousins, the regular tape in hair extensions, Invisible tapes are quick and easy to fit. The average application time for a full-head makeover ranges from one hour to one hour and a half, sometimes two hours when working with particularly thick hair, or a stylist that isn't particularly experienced with this method. Either way, the fitting is quite simple: the stylist creates a thin and long section of hair (as long as the tab on the wefts), and positions it in between two Invisible tape wefts. This is what we call a "sandwich" in tape jargon! Each sandwich is made of one section of hair and two Invisible tape wefts, therefore for reference, each pack contains a total of 10 sandwiches (aka 20 wefts).
The adhesive on the tabs is strong enough to hold firmly onto the natural hair whilst being gentle.
Can you reuse invisible tape hair extensions?
Yes, of course you can. Each strand can be removed by using a specific tape hair extensions remover and reapplied by using spare adhesive tabs for hair extensions.
