    Thanks for the video! I've been interested in taped in extensions for awhile now. Are they OK for fine, thin hair and how many pieces are needed for a whole head? How long do they last and can they be washed and styled and all that good stuff?

      They are perfect for fine, thin hair - as long as you have enough hair on top to cover them. We are coming out with a tape line, very soon that has rooted tape tabs (instead of the hair coming out the bottom, it comes out like grass (then down) if that makes sense? It looks more like rooted clusters - this will help people hide them that typically have a difficult time hiding extensions. They can be washed and styled like normal - they shoudn't budge until you use a remover. Typically, we see people using 3 packs for a full installation.

    How long does your natural have to be to get extentions?

      To be honest, you can get extensions when your hair is half an inch long - the problem isn't getting them to stay, its getting them to blend. As a general rule, the best blends start at chin length, and the length shouldn't be longer than double what the natural hair is (you can get realistic layers this way). However, if you add a top piece that covers shorter hair, you won't be bound by this limitation. Anything is possible with a little work and a bit of creativity. :)
