“The tape-in wefts from Hair Lingerie are great for adding volume and length,” says Papanikolas, who is Matrix’s celebrity stylist. “Unlike many other extension brands that don’t take well to coloring and highlighting, Hair Lingerie can be easily customized to blend perfectly with the client’s color. The quality of the hair is very soft and silky and stays this way, which allows the client to reuse the hair. All they need to do is wash and add more glue to the wefts to reuse. They come in large pieces, so application is fast and easy, plus the large pieces distribute the weight so that they don’t rip out the hair.
“They’re also easily removed with oil sprayed on the tape, which makes them slide off. The removal process can be the most damaging to the hair as it can cause lots of breakage. For the client, it’s important to keep the extensions hydrated with Biolage R.A.W. Re-hab Mask ($30).”
