Depending on the client's hair density, their desired length and volume, Keasling suggests using one to two full packs. GL Tapes Plus—which are intermixable with GL Tapes—allow for application up to the client's part-line. Keasling suggests asking clients to purchase two sets of tapes for a seamless service. Even parting, properly spaced application and sealing the tape sides are key to your hair extension services.


Keasling recommends for clients to sleep in their hair braided to reduce friction, brush it two to three times daily and use a shampoo and conditioner that works well with hair extensions. With proper application and client maintenance protocols, Great Lengths hair extensions can last four to six weeks and can be re-taped and re-used for up to three applications.
