A Different Type of Tapes

Our revolutionary, ultra-slender tape-in extension system gives a full head of hair in less than an hour. We use exclusively Slavic hair for our tapes meaning they are dense but still light. A polyurethane adhesive tape creates a secure and comfortable bond, allowing for easy removal and re-application. Hair is secured to the tape with double stitching across the tape base, greatly extending the life of the tapes. Combined with professional installation these cleverly designed tapes ensure that the weight is distributed across multiple strands of hair, preventing them from putting stress on your natural hair.



Advantages of Tapes

Length and volume can be achieved very quickly (20-30 minutes for volume and 45-60 minutes for length).

Tapes are perfectly suited for those with fine hair.

Tapes are the only extension system using adhesive that are non damaging and can be reusable.

Your perfect colour can be achieved quickly without bleaching or dyeing your hair.

Tapes are ultra-thin, so they are comfortable, versatile and invisible.

Application and Removal

Tape extensions are applied by removing the backing from the weft exposing the polyurethane. Then by laying a thin veil of hair over the top and applying a second weft directly on top of the first weft, “sandwiching” the natural hair in between. The removal is just as easy and can be done using tape-in extension remover and a pintail comb. The tape adhesive dissolves on contact with the remover, allowing gentle removal of the tapes. The residual adhesive is then removed, the hair is washed and dried and our extensionists apply new adhesive tape so that the tapes can be reapplied. The tapes extensions should last for 6–8 weeks before they need to be repositioned.



And Answers...

What are tape extensions?

Tape extensions are one of the newest hair extension trends on the market. Tape in hair extensions are thin hair wefts, about 1” inch wide pre-taped hair wefts, that get taped-in in between your own hair. 2 tapes are used together to sandwich your natural hair. This method requires no tools or chemicals and lasts up to 6-8 weeks before the tapes need to be lifted. With good quality tapes, made from Slavic hair, tapes can be reused 2-3 times. Length and volume can be achieved quickly (20-30 minutes for volume and 45-60 minutes for length).

How are Tatiana Karelina tapes different?

Unlike other ranges of tape-in extensions, mass-produced in China, available in 55 colours and then re-labelled as Slavic hair before sold to the customer our tape-in extensions are the only ones on the market that use genuine Slavic hair. Our tapes are made in small batches and our colour line is achieved not with dye but by blending multiple shades of natural hair by hand before it is sewn into each tape.

Are tapes suitable for those with fine hair?

Yes. Tapes were original designed for women with fine hair. If you have thin hair, tape in extensions are one of the best hair extension choices for you as they're thin and lightweight, so they won't be too heavy for your head.

Why are your tapes more expensive?

Simply put, because it is genuine Slavic hair. Our tapes aren’t mass produced. We don’t have dozens and dozens of colours, ready to ship with express delivery. Salons and website that are advertising Slavic tapes in C12, W11, C18 or any mixed colour or balayage are not selling Slavic tapes. Slavic hair is simply too scarce and too expensive to use to create a mass market line of tapes. While these tapes might be of decent quality they should not be confused as Slavic tapes.

Will tapes damage my own hair?

If installed by a professional and properly maintained, this method will not damage your hair.
