Using Single Sided Tape on Fine or Thin Hair
“Are hair extensions for me?” You’ve heard your clients ask this question. Perhaps we’re a little biased here at Babe, but “absolutely!” is our perennial response. Whether your clients want a quick fix of length and color or an all-over hair transformation, hair extensions and their various installation methods can bring visions to reality.
Hair comes in all shapes and sizes though, and some clients remain skeptical. “I have thin/fine hair. Are extensions still for me?” these concerned clients may ask. It’s certainly a valid question. Hair extensions do require proper installation and upkeep to achieve their intended effect, and it’s crucial for clients to understand their specific hair type before beginning. But our answer is still an unmitigated: Yes! Yes! Yes! With Babe’s Single Sided Tape that is. Here’s why using Single Sided Tape with Tape-In Extensions is perfect for clients with thin or fine hair, and how this revolutionary product is changing the extensions game for women of all hair types...
Half the Wefts = Half the Weight
One of the predominant hair extensions stumbling blocks for those with fine or thin hair is the weight, strain, and discomfort that the hair extensions can potentially place on the hair and scalp. When the client’s individual strands of hair are thinner and the follicles more sparse, Babe’s Tape-In Extensions are preferred over fusion or beaded methods because they’re lighter overall. Still, even traditional Tape-In Extensions can be too heavy for thin-haired clients. This is exactly where Single Sided Tape comes into play. In a nutshell, Single Sided Tape is a gentle solution for thin-haired clients because they use half as many wefts as traditional Tape-In extensions, and, as a result, place half as much weight and strain on the hair. While traditional Tape-In Extensions work by “sandwiching” the client's hair between two wefts of extensions and then taping them together, Single Sided Tape allows you to achieve that effect using only one weft of hair extensions and a corresponding piece of adhesive on the other side. End result? It creates the same volumizing visual effect as traditional Tape-In Extensions with half the distributed weight overall.
Single Sided Tape-Ins Bring New Opportunities
Beauty, and the opportunity to transform oneself, shouldn’t have an exclusive “door policy.” It’s for everyone! With that in mind, Single Sided Tape creates hair extensions avenues which many clients haven’t previously considered possible. With its weightless alternative to traditional extension methods and premium Babe quality, Single Sided Tape allows women with thin or fine hair to experience the same volumizing effects of Tape-In Extensions without the weight and strain that’s kept them out of the running in the past.
