There are many different sizes for tape in hair extensions on the global market. I’ve seen tape extensions as wide as 12 centimeters wide which really is not a good option. You’ll find if you do purchase 12cm wide tape extensions you will end up cutting them in probably quarters so you can install them in smaller bits.
I’ve seen 8 centimeters wide pieces it’s the same go. Some people will install on this wide but it’s not going to be uncomfortable for your client. It’s going to pull out hair and it’s going to be harder to remove. The perfect tape extensions weft size is 4 centimeters, it’s a great size it’s good for quick application and quicker removal.
If you do want smaller pieces you can cut the tape weft in half for areas around the ears or near the the fringe, then there is a newer method called micro tape extensions. This method is pieces of up to 2 cm wide and they actually are folded in half so you have 1 cm wide tape pieces all throughout your head. The pieces are smaller but they really haven’t taken off to be as popular as the 4cm size as they’re much longer to install it takes longer to take them out because there are 70 more pieces to achieve a full head. There are just quite fiddly. There are some hair extensions brands who will only stock micro tape extensions. I guess it all boils down to a personal preference whether you would prefer to have about 80 to 100 small pieces in your hair or if you rather just have 40 pieces in your hair.
