1. Hair Preparation

Thoroughly wash your hair with a deep cleansing shampoo before applying the extensions.

Part a section of your hair horizontally and secure it with a sectioning clamp. Use a tail comb to section a strand that is approximately the same width and thickness as a tape-in strand (about 2.5cm).

2. Sectioning the Strand

Loosely secure the sectioned strand to the top hair with another sectioning clamp or a small hair clip.

3. Preparing the Tape Strand

Remove the protective paper from the adhesive strip of a tape-in strand.

4. Positioning the Tape Strand

Release the secured strand from the clip, hold the open adhesive side of the extension strand just below the loose strand, and place it on the adhesive strip.

5. Attaching the Lower Strand

Gently press the hair onto the adhesive strip. Leave about 1cm of space between the scalp and the adhesive strip.

6. Attaching the Upper Strand

Remove the protective paper from a second tape-in strand and place the adhesive side onto your own hair, which is lying on top of the first tape-in strand. Now, firmly press the two tape-in strands together! The adhesive sides should face each other.

7. Repetition

Repeat the steps for each additional strand. Leave 1cm of space between the strands and apply them in rows, slightly offset from each other, to achieve a natural result.
