Tape-ins vs. Hand-Tied Extensions

There are many different kinds of hair extensions on the market, but today we are going to cover the difference between tape ins and hand-tied extensions. 

What are the benefits of tape-in extensions?

Tape-in extensions are taped in-between layers of your hair by a stylist. This means they can be easily and quickly installed or removed. They last for a few uses, so tape-ins are a good option if you’re looking to try out the extensions experience or aren’t ready to commit to hand-tied extensions yet. They're also a good option if you're only intending to wear your hair down, or go to a special event, as the adhesive will show otherwise. Because they’re not meant to last as long or require as much maintenance as hand-tied extensions, tape-ins are also less expensive. 

What are the benefits of hand-tied extensions?

Hand-tied extensions are sewn into your hair by a stylist. Hand-tied extensions, with proper care and maintenance, can last years on your head! This is a good option if you’re ready to commit to a long-term look and style. Hand-tied extensions are also of a higher quality than most other types of extensions. You can tie your hair up, swim, and exercise without the fear of your extensions being noticeable or damaged. Hand-tied extensions are the most natural-looking and acting type of extensions. 

What kind of extensions should I purchase?

It is important to determine what lifestyle or occasion you desire when considering extensions. If you want extensions for a few months, and are wishing to try out having long-term hair extensions, tape-ins are a good option. If you're wanting hair extensions that last up to a year, and are ready for that commitment, hand-tied extensions are the best choice. 

Getting hair extensions installed can be a big change. It's important to pick the right kind for you and your life. Talk to your stylist for their opinion on what works with your hair!
