Firstly, wash hair with clarifying shampoo to remove any product build up and to aid the adhesion of the tape hair before drying and allowing the hair to cool.
After sectioning the hair, secure in place. Working on one side of the head with a section comb, take a sub section slightly smaller than 2cm wide with enough support density. Ensure section is neat, with no stay hairs.
Remove the tape on the second Micro Tape, sticky side down and place over the top of the first to match up. Ensure you leave enough room for movement up and down to avoid tension on the natural hair.
Press the tabs together with your fingers and then with tape hair pliers to ensure no air gaps remain between the taps and the adhesive has fused to the hair securely. It is essential to ensure the edges are all sealed.
Fitting 8 sections per side, with a total of 32 individual Micro tapes used to complete the look. Colour used is 9/613 Light Ash Brown/Blonde.
