How to Tape-In Hair Extensions at Home for Beginners

  Tape-in hair extensions are a popular choice for adding length and volume to your hair.
If you're a beginner and want to learn how to apply tape-in hair extensions or style a bob wig

at home, here's a step-by-step guide for you.


How to Tape-In Hair Extensions at Home for Beginners

  Human hair wigs and long hair extensions have become essential for those looking to change up their look,
and they're favored by many American and Canadian fashionistas.
Materials You'll Need:
  1. Tape-in hair extensions
  2. Rat-tail comb
  3. Clips to section your hair
  4. Hair clips or elastics
  5. Hair extension tape (double-sided)
  6. Hair extension remover (in case you need to reposition the extensions)
  7. A mirror
Steps to Apply Tape-in Hair Extensions:
  1. Prepare Your Hair:
Start with clean, dry hair, a common practice for American ladies looking for an effortless style. 
Ensure it's free from any styling products or oils.
Section your hair by parting it horizontally, starting at the nape of your neck and working your way up, just like many New York girls do. Use hair clips to secure the top layers of your hair, leaving the bottom section exposed.
  1. Position the Extensions:
Take one tape-in hair extension, perhaps in a trendy bob wig style, and remove the backing from the adhesive side.
Place the extension under a thin section of your natural hair, about 1-2 cm away from the scalp.
Press the extension onto your hair to secure it. Make sure it's flat and smooth to prevent any bumps or unevenness.
  1. Seal with Another Extension:
Take a second tape-in extension with the adhesive side exposed.
Place it over the top of the first extension, sandwiching your natural hair between them.
Press firmly to seal the extensions together.
  1. Repeat the Process:
Continue this process, working your way up your head, section by section.
Make sure each extension is evenly spaced and aligned with the previous ones for a natural look.
  1. Style and Blend:
Once all the extensions are in place, style your hair as desired. Many New York girls love the versatility of bob wigs.
Use a flat iron or curling iron to blend the sew-in hair extensions with your natural hair.


Tips for Beginners:
  • Start with a small number of extensions to get the hang of the application process.
  • Be precise in sectioning your hair and placing the extensions for an even and natural look.
  • For the best results, consider having a friend or family member assist you, especially for the sections at the back of your head.
Keep in mind that the removal and repositioning of tape-in extensions may require additional steps and products.
If you're unsure or have any doubts, it's always a good idea to consult a professional stylist for assistance.
Whether you're an American lady or a New York girl, human hair wigs and hair extensions offer you the opportunity to transform your look with ease.
