Step 3: Gather a thin hair strand

A general rule for applying tape in hair extensions is sandwich a thin strand of hair between 2 extensions, one on the top, one at the bottom then stick these two together. Use a comb to grab a very thin section of hair that has the same width as your hair wefts.

Step 4: Apply tape-ins

First, let’s start by attaching the bottom extension under the thin hair section. Lift up your thin hair strands. Peel off the trip that covers the tape attached to the bottom extension. Then tape it underneath the thin hair potion that you are lifting.

If your extensions do not stick together, that means you have inserted too much hair in between them, gently pull out some strand off the bottom extensions with a brush
