STEP 1: Take a clean section as wide as an extension with a rat tail comb and hold it between your pointer and middle finger with your pinky at the top of the section.
STEP 2: Pull the tape of from one side with a pair of tweezers.
STEP 3: With the tweezers in the middle of the tape, please the tape 1/4” underneath the section.  Starting with your pinky, roll the hair over the tape.  
STEP 4: Take an Ultimate extension and line up with the Single Sided tape and secure the bond
