The cost of tape-in hair extensions varies widely, and is dependant on many factors. For example, the total cost is determined by the type of hair used, the length of the hair piece, how many pieces you need inserted to achieve your desired result — as well as the salon's own pricing and even the city you live in.
At Samantha Cusick London, they use extensions by The London Hair Lab, with pricing starting from £80 for hair filler, which is what I had. Personally, I required four 17-inch extensions to add volume around my hairline, which cost £160. This price included the cost of the hair itself and the stylist fitting the extensions, cutting the hair, and styling.
Another thing to factor in is the cost of the refit appointments, which are required every six to eight weeks and usually cost around half the amount of the original visit.
While still an investment, hair filler tape-in extensions are the more affordable option when compared with all-out volume and length appointments, which can cost as much as £800 (more at some salons). When it comes to adding volume though, Cooke said a little can go a long way. "If a client comes in asking for more volume around the front, but isn't sure they're ready to commit to hair extensions, then we recommend trying one in each side to start." He said you'll be surprised how big of a difference one piece of hair will make to the overall appearance of fullness.
