And the title of ‘Best Hair Extensions’ at the Marie Claire Hair Awards 2019 goes to…


Drum roll please…. GL Tapes!


Having launched earlier this year, GL Tapes have taken the industry by storm, featured in leading titles including Glamour Magazine, Look Magazine, Cosmopolitan and the Sunday Times, and welcomed VIPS such as Caroline Flack and Thuy Lee, who have sported them. With a full head application possible in as little as one hour in some instances, GL Tapes are perfect for the time conscious looking for a quick fix, lasting 6-8 weeks and with the ability to be re-taped up to three times.

Now in its third year, the Marie Claire Hair Awards recognises the very best in hair products, personalities and services in the industry. Voted by a mixture of reader panels and the editorial team the search for those to crown includes a dedicated process of testing and research. All winners were announced at a lavish breakfast ceremony at The Connaught Hotel, London – keep your eyes peeled for the Marie Claire January issue where we will be featured!

GL Tapes use a hypo-allergenic, non-toxic, medical grade tape and are suitable for all hair types, with the ability to transform styles to add extra length, volume and colour and with a selection of over 58 shades to choose from.

With an easy aftercare and maintenance regime to follow, GL Tapes are able to last up to six to eight weeks before a visit back to your chosen salon is needed. GL Tapes can also be reapplied up to three times without causing any damage to natural hair making these a true favourite loved by many clients and our GL Lovelies.

We are proud to announce our Award winning GL Tapes can be donated after wear through your chosen Great Lengths salon to The Little Princess Trust, to be used in the specially tailored wigs that are gifted to children by the charity. The wigs feature a mix of hair from several donors, but recognizing the ethicality, traceability and quality of Great Lengths’ extensions, we are the only hair extension brand to have this partnership with the charity.

We’d like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to all our wonderful GL Tape salons and stylists who continued to carry out and showcase amazing transformations on their clients, using our award winning GL Tapes.

We’ll be celebrating the 1st Birthday of GL Tapes next year – so stay tuned.
