TAPE-IN VS. HAND-TIED EXTENSIONS...

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?

tape - in extensions

tape-in extensions are human hair, adhesive weft extensions.

hand - tied extensions

hand-tied extensions are handsewn human hair wefts that are installed by thread - zero glue, tape or adhesive required. 

the main difference!

I have worn both, and personally prefer hand-tied extensions - no question. if you are looking for just a little fullness to fill in your sides, tape-in may be a better option for you. for length or fullness throughout, you can't beat hand-tied extensions!

with hand-tied, you get more longevity with the hair itself as well as time in between your maintenance appointments. they are very lightweight + flexible allowing you to effortlessly wear your hair up - high pony or low. you can do both!

PRICING + MAINTENANCE...

pricing can vary depending on the desired look + density.

consultation is required. your initial price quote + appointment will include your installation and hair cost. after your initial install appointment - you will be scheduled for maintenance appts until new hair is needed.

hand - tied: initial install

volume // $x +

this is ideal for someone wanting to add some fullness to their current length.

*1 row 

length + thickening // $x +

this is for someone wanting that instant gratification of longer locks! pricing will significantly vary as the extensions needed will be catered to every clients individual needs.

*2 - 3+ rows

 

hand - tied: maintenance

volume (1 row) // $150 

additional row // $100 per row

*RECOMMENDED EVERY 8 - 10 WEEKS

this may vary slightly depending on your natural growth rate as well as at home care.

the hair itself can last up to a year if well maintained. although possible, that longevity is not guaranteed and heavily depends on your at home care, proper use of professional products, etc. 

your reinstallation appointment includes removal of your extensions, reinstallation of your extensions and a trim if needed. it is important you come in with clean hair for any installation appointment as your hair + the extensions will not be washed. 

tape - in: initial install

mini / sides // $x +

adding a couple just to the sides to "fill in the gaps" slightly

volume // $x +

this is ideal for someone wanting to add some fullness to their current length.

full / length // $x +

this is for someone wanting that instant gratification of longer locks! pricing will significantly vary as the extensions needed will be catered to every clients individual needs.

 

tape - in: maintenance

mini / sides // $100 

volume // $150 

full / length // $300

*RECOMMENDED EVERY 8 - 10 WEEKS

this may vary slightly depending on your natural growth rate as well as at home care.

a repurchase of hair will be needed every 2 - 3 appointments as the adhesive weft will begin to break down. as always, that longevity is not guaranteed and heavily depends on your at home care, proper use of professional products, etc. 

your reinstallation appointment includes removal of your extensions, a hair wash, reinstallation of your extensions and a trim if needed. it is important you come in with clean hair for any installation appointment as the extensions will not be washed during the shampoo.

FREQUENTLY ASKED ?'S...

WHAT ARE MAINTENANCE APPOINTMENTS?

as your hair grows, your extensions grow out as well. every 8 - 10 weeks, your extensions will be ready to be ‘moved up’ or ‘tightened’. this timeframe will vary client to client depending on your natural growth rate.

 

WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR EXTENSIONS?

honestly, everyone! extensions are very versatile and are fully customizable to fit each clients needs. you can get extensions for the length and fullness you've always dreamt of, to fill in the sides that seem to not grow, or just to add a little thickness to the length you currently have.

 

HOW SHOULD I WASH MY HAIR EXTENSIONS?

you can wash + condition your extensions just like your normal hair. make sure to get under every row and rinse thoroughly to ensure all the product has been removed. as always, professional quality products are highly recommended as it is crucial to the health + longevity of your hair.

 

ARE THEY DAMAGING?

when done properly + well cared for, not at all! I have found the hand tied method to be the most gentle for the health of your natural hair. 

 

DO THEY HOLD A STYLE WELL?

yes! actually, extensions tend to hold a style much better than your natural hair. this makes for easy 2nd day hair, just a quick touch up + you’re good to go!

 

CAN YOU SWIM WITH THEM?

yes, when precautions are taken. it is recommended before you swim to rinse your hair extensions first + use a leave in conditioner to protect them from chlorine. I always like to lean on the safe side, and if you are swimming in a unfamiliar pool - you may not be aware of the amount of chlorine / chemicals used in the pool. this can effect the color + texture of the hair if the chlorine levels are extreme enough. in addition, I also recommend putting your hair in a low ponytail or loose braid to prevent them from tangling and wash immediately after swimming.

 

HOW SHOULD I SLEEP WITH THEM?

similar to swimming, I always recommend a low loose ponytail or a loose braid with a scrunchie. I also love a good silk pillowcase. extensions or not - a silk pillowcase is much more gentle on your hair!
