The Beauty of Tape
Babe Tape-In hair extensions are a consistently popular choice among stylists and clients alike. They’re quick, easy, flexible, and a good fit for both experienced hair extension wearers and newcomers. But what is it about this method that really sets it apart? Unsurprisingly, it’s all about that tape.
Babe’s Tape-In tape is a latex-free medical adhesive that is durable enough to last through hair care and styling procedures, yet safe enough to wear for months on end. This tape allows for totally damage-free installations, involving no heat, crimping, or strain on the client’s hair. It’s also skin-safe, causing no irritation even to the most sensitive of users.
Easy to un-install.
Though it’s beyond difficult to remove this adhesive with your hands alone, Tape-In tape responds quickly and easily to our Tape-In Bond Remover. An oil-based formula, this remover is gentle on the client’s hair, yet effective at weakening the adhesive bond for a smooth de-installation.
Versatile enough for any hair type.
A key distinction of Babe’s Tape-In method is that it’s an ideal choice for fine or thin-haired women. Unlike Fusion and I-Tip extensions, Tape-In hair requires no additional bonds or tools to install. There is no additional weight from beads or keratin bonds—just the nearly weightless tape already present on the weft. Furthermore, each weft is wider than a typical Fusion or I-Tip strand, since the extension hair is dispersed along the width of the tape strip. This means that, when applied to the client’s hair, the weight of the extension is spread across a wider surface area, placing less stress on individual hairs. There’s even an alternative Tape-In installation strategy in which the section of hair is sandwiched between a Tape-In extension weft and a piece of Single Sided Tape (instead of two Tape-In wefts) to further reduce the weight being added to the client’s head. The result is a full-looking head of hair that feels as natural as possible.
Flat, smooth, comfortable.
Tape-In tape, and the extensions that accompany them, are unprecedentedly flat. This allows for the extensions to lay flush against the client’s head, hugging their contours and resting easily in-between their natural layers. They also install quickly and gently, with nothing more than a touch of pressure to smooth the tape down. Tape-In extensions are comfortable to wear, whether to work or to bed, and are easy to care for using Babe’s aftercare tools. Your client won’t even notice that they’re there—until they look in the mirror.
