Installing TruMatch Tape-In Extensions

Extensions are quickly becoming a must-have for clients, so we’re bringing you a quick how-to on installing tape-ins. These are TRUMATCH by Daniel Alain tape-in extensions, and we have all the details! Here’s what you should know about TRUMATCH.

TRUMATCH creator Daniel Alain Hafid (whose father is the acclaimed founder of René of Paris, one of the nation’s largest wig wholesalers) and celebrity colorist Kim Vo (Hollywood’s top blonding expert) say these tape-in extensions are game-changers. Here’s why:


1. Match her texture. From straight with body, slightly wavy, medium wavy or curly, there is a texture for every woman.


2. Match her color. Start with the 16 Kim Vo-developed shades, created exclusively for TRUMATCH to reflect the high-fashion hues your clients want now. Then add the ability to lift and deposit tone-on-tone up to two levels, and you can really deliver a TRUMATCH.


3. Match her denier. What’s denier? It’s the precise thickness of her hair strand—very fine, fine, medium or coarse. TRUMATCH may be the only extension company to offer this level of  precision hair matching.

    Take a radial section to separate the back from the front, then take a horizontal section from the recession to the radial, 2 inches above the ear.

  • close formula

    Take a very thin section below the horizontal section. 

  • close formula

    Pick up the TRUMATCH extension, remove the tape and place it as close to the root as possible, underneath the thin section. 

  • close formula

    Add a second extension on top of the thin section, pressing together the tape to seal. This keeps the extensions looking natural, with no bumps in the root area. Be sure to install extensions at least 1 ½ inches away from the hairline to avoid seeing the tape when the hair is pushed back.

    Continue taking horizontal sections every ½ inch, repeating the same technique.
