Applying Your Tape It™ Hair Extensions 12 Inch
Glam glow-ups are easy with 12 inch tape in hair extensions by Wicked Roots Hair™! Keep in mind that you’ll need to make an appointment with a professional stylist to apply your Tape It™ extensions (our other hair extensions, Clip It™ and Band It™, are DIY options and available in 16-inch and 20-inch.) Your stylist will ensure they evenly and accurately apply your Tape It™
12 inch hair extensions for a flawless finish!
When you go to your hair extension appointment, here’s what to expect:
Your stylist will start by brushing and detangling your natural hair and extensions to ensure a smooth application free from tangles or matting.
- Once you’re ready for the application, the stylist will clip the topmost part of your hair, section it, and then gently tape extensions onto your remaining layers (typically double-siding or layering the pieces).
- They will then repeat the process until your entire head is evenly covered with your 12 inch hair extensions.
After you’ve transformed your tresses at the salon, it’s time to style it! Now that you’ve got a little extra length and ultra-volume, the possibilities are endless.
