Tape hair extensions are one of the most popular choices of hair extensions for many EH Hair clients. It is a way to enjoy luscious and long locks throughout the year, with minimal maintenance or time spent in the salon. Plus, with correct homecare and proper application, you can even reuse them for 6-12 months. Clients report that they are comfortable to wear and give them the boost of confidence.
Tape hair extensions are particularly suited to people with fine hair, as the tape lies flat to the scalp, giving you a virtually undetectable application. All you have to do is choose the colour that matches your natural hair shade and you are ready to enjoy increased volume and length!
Having a complete range of tape hair extensions in stock and on hand has set us apart from our competitors and has allowed us to give you, the client exactly what you want immediately when coming through our doors.
We offer two different types of tape extensions. Both are applied in the same way where 4cm wide sections are applied in a ‘sandwich style’, but the two options vary slightly in appearance.
Traditional tape hair extensions
Tape in hair extensions have been extremely popular for some time now, due to their incredible look and feel. They are one of the most comfortable and low maintenance extension methods around and have the added bonus of a 1-hour application time so you are not spending hours waiting in the salon for your new look.
These extensions are applied on clean, dry hair by sandwiching the natural hair between two pieces of the tape extensions. With skillfull placement by one of our extension specialists, an extremely natural result is able to be achieved.
Invisible tape/skin weft hair extensions
The bond of the skin weft extensions is what sets them apart from standard tape extensions.
Skin wefts are hand-tied to create the appearance of hair growing directly from a scalp; therefore concealing the tape connection across the top like you may see in traditional tape extensions. This gives you an extremely natural and discreet result.
Tape in hair extensions are a fantastic method for fine, medium, or thick hair of all lengths.
Using a hypoallergenic, specially designed bond, skin weft extensions can be removed simply by spraying with a little of our gentle removal spray. After making their debut in our Gold Coast-based salon and seeing such an incredible response from our new and returning clients, we have also moved the range to the tape hair extensions Melbourne-based salon as well as our Brisbane and Sydney salons.

Tape Hair Extension Before and After
Frequently asked questions about tape hair extensions / invisible tape hair extensions (skin wefts) answered By EH Hair team:
How long does it take to attach tape hair extensions?
The great thing about tape hair extensions is that you won’t have to spend your whole afternoon sitting in the salon. While it will depend on whether you are getting a full head of hair extensions or not, it usually takes 30 to 60 minutes to fit tape hair extensions. This is a lot quicker than other methods, which means that they appeal to women that live busy lives.
When will I need to have my tape Hair Extensions refitted?
Tape hair extensions require less maintenance than other methods and you can expect not to be back in the salon until around four to six weeks after they are attached. Of course, this will depend on how fast your hair grows and the last thing that you want is for the tape to become visible. So, everyone will be different.
What are the benefits of Remy tape hair extensions?
Everyone wants their tape hair extensions to look natural and this is exactly what you get when you choose Remy over synthetic hair. 100% Human Russian Remy hair like we offer at EH Hair and Extensions is chosen for its quality and the hair is soft, shiny, and simply gorgeous.

Can you style tape hair extensions?
Absolutely; we encourage you to try out new styles with your tape hair extensions. Since they are made from 100% Human Russian Remy hair, you can use a straightener and a curling wand on them without damaging them.

In addition, you can wear your hair up in a variety of styles and you won’t have to worry about the tape showing. Whether you are wearing a ponytail or a chignon, your hair will look gorgeous!
Are there any products you should avoid using on tape hair extensions?
It is always best to use specialised products that are meant for hair extensions. This will make sure they get the nutrients that they need to say healthy and look beautiful all year round. In particular, any oil-based products should be avoided, as this can make it slippery for tape hair extensions and they may not stay on as securely as they should. No products with sulphates, proteins or keratin should be used on hair extensions as these causes irreversible damage. Alcohol products should also be avoided, as this can damage Remy hair.

For tape in hair extensions, you can safely sleep with your extensions. However, if you are using other methods like clips or halos, we recommend that you should remove them before sleeping as it can damage your own hair as well as the hair extension.

Will your invisible tape hair extensions require regular blow-drying?
To ensure that your hair extensions remain silky soft, we recommend regular blow-drying as part of your regular hair routine.

No, skin wefts are less likely to shed because they are hand-tied. However, it is important to keep in mind that several factors such as how your hair extensions are applied and cared for will greatly affect their lifespan.
What does it feel like to have tape in hair extensions?
If you have tape in hair extensions, you can barely feel that you’re wearing them. This is because they are incredibly lightweight, the application is pain-free, and they adhere to your real hair. Most importantly, braiding is not required which can increase the risk of hair loss and scalp discomforts.
Is there a difference between your real hair and hair extensions during the drying process?
Your real hair tends to be naturally wavy or curly while your hair extensions can be smooth as they dry. While the difference is not noticeable, you can blow-dry your real hair and hair extensions to achieve a soft, silky appearance.
