Because of the high industry demand for Tape-Ins from stylists, Donna Bella decided to search high and low for the best quality hair to add Tape-In extensions to the line. Because we’re always finding new ways to innovate, we were one of the first large hair extension companies to offer the method. Our founder did not only find high-quality hair, he also worked hard to find the best quality adhesive that would provide long-lasting hold. Finally, a formula of latex-free medical adhesive was tested and found to be safe to use on all hair types. Since Donna Bella Hair has offered Tape-In hair extensions, it has been the number one seller and is quickly gaining more popularity. It’s the newer method of doing hair extensions and is a favorite of not only the client but the stylist, too. If you’ve never attempted the Tape-In method but want to know more, this blog is for you.
After receiving complaints from stylists about the rudimentary tape-ins that were offered from other companies, Donna Bella Hair tried to develop a method what would remove all of those issues (slippage, shedding, weak adhesive, etc.). Consequently, we’ve become very successful. Tape-In hair is sold in wefts instead of individual strands. Since there is more hair on each weft, the hair can be installed in wider areas of the head. If installed correctly, it has a flat, seamless finish. It has less strain than individual strand extensions, which is better for thinner hair. The advantage of wefts over strands is the installation time. Most Tape-In installations take an hour or two at most. Faster installation means you have more time in your schedule for appointments, which in turn means more revenue. More revenue is what we like as stylists, right?
Donna Bella’s Tape-Ins are made with 100% Human Remy hair that is stitched onto a polyurethane template to prevent shedding. Just like Kera-Link and I-Link extensions, if Tape-Ins are cared for properly, they will last a year or longer. We recommend moving up the hair every 4-6 weeks and the hair can be reused 2-3 times which gives the client 3-6 months in between replacing the hair. Tape-Ins can be reused up to three times if removed and installed correctly.
Tape-In hair extensions are perfect for clients who want to avoid the heat from Kera-Links or the beads from I-Link. The tape that is used is specifically formulated to be non-irritating to the skin. Donna Bella Hair developed an advanced adhesive formulation that allows for maximum hold and easy removal (with the correct remover), leaving the natural hair free from any damage.
