Tape In or Clip In Hair Extensions | Easihair Pro
Picking The Right Extension System For You
Both tape in and clip in hair extensions are viable solutions for longer, thicker hair. Both can give you the length and volume you’ve always desired, but in two different ways. The perfect system varies person to person and depends on what you want from your hair extensions. To help understand the differences between tape in and clip in hair extensions, here’s a brief rundown of their similarities and differences.
If you are looking for flexibility, clip in hair extensions are probably for you. Tape in hair extensions are semi permanent and can last months. Contrastingly, clip in hair extensions must be taken out and replaced every morning. If you are looking for length when you want it, clip in hair extensions are for you. However, if you are looking for an everyday answer for longer, fuller hair, you’ll probably want to invest in tape in hair extensions.
Your average tape in hair extensions can last anywhere from one to three years, but last no more than three applications. On the other hand, clip in hair extensions can be reapplied as many times as you want but typically only last a year. For a longer lasting hair extension, tape ins are probably the best way to go.
No matter which hair extension solution you choose, both should be blended by your stylist. Tape in hair extensions must be installed by a stylist, while clip ins can be applied at home. However, for best results, you should take your newly purchased clip in hair extensions to your stylist so they can shape them and cut them to your desired length.
Both hair extension systems should look seamless when installed properly, but because clip in hair extensions must be re-clipped every morning, they may look a little bulky when the clip doesn’t like flat on the head. However, tape in hair extensions aren’t flawless either. They will become more noticeable as they grow away from the scalp and will need to be reapplied by a hair care professional to freshen your hair.
As long as you use 100% Remy human hair, both your clip in and tape in hair extensions should withstand heating tools. You should be able to straighten, curl, and blow dry your human hair extensions as if they were your real hair. However, if you use synthetic hair extensions, styling is never an option.
5. Color options
Both tape in and clip in hair extensions come in a variety of colors. This lets you perfectly match your hair color for optimal blending. If you can’t find your perfect shade, our hair extensions are made from human hair and can be dyed to match.
If you are looking for a temporary pop of color, clip in hair extensions are probably best suited for you. You can take them out and put them on when you want to, allowing you to be professional in the workplace and a party on the weekends. Tape in hair extensions are semi-permanent and your color will last at least six weeks before they fall out.
