Since hair systems can vary in shape and size, different contours and sizes of tape are made to custom fit your system. There are an array assortment of tapes to fit the needs of our guests. Rolls of tape are also available in several lengths and widths. Rolls of hairpiece tape normally sell in different widths including 3/4" and 1". The rolls allow you to customize the area of your hair system that is taped - they also allow you to purchase a hairpiece tape that will fit the exact width of your polyurethane perimeter. Tapes can be used for either 1-7 days(Daily) , 1-2 weeks (Extended), or 2-4 weeks (Maximum).

How to Apply Tape
Due to each tape requiring various application strategies we suggest to talk with one of our specialists. For information about how to apply tape to your hair system, visit the staff at Hair Because We Care for a tutorial on how to apply tape to suit your needs.
Tape Application methods vary depending upon your individual wear, cleaning, and tape preference. Speak to a CARE Specialist today to discover the best possible adhesive option for you. Here are a few general guidelines for tape application:
- Remove the wig from your head and be sure the wig and your scalp are clean and free of oils and makeup.
- Your tape may be cut to fit your wig or hair system using small scissors.
- Peel off the proper side of the tape and apply to the desired areas of the wig base. After application, peel off the backings of the tape.
- Place the wig onto the scalp in the desired location before securing by pressing on taped areas.
When wearing a wig or hair replacement system, an attachment product is used, either tape or glue. If it is your first time using a product, we highly recommend doing a "patch test" prior to the attachment of the hair system to avoid possible scalp irritation or discomfort. Ask a CARE Specialist about "patch test" and which tapes and adhesives will work best for you.
