Unlike the beaded wefts technique, hand-tied extensions cover more surface area on your head. 

Wait. What is a “weft?” A hair weft is a collection of hair strands that have been hand-sewn together and are ready for your stylist to place in your hair. 

These hand-tied wefts are thinner and lighter than typical wefts. Which won’t create heaviness, discomfort, or pull on your scalp.

The thinness lets the tied-in hair lay flatter against your head, giving you a natural look. And, this popular technique uses your natural hair to build the rows across your scalp.

Are you looking for more versatility, length, color, or hairstyle without the damage of tape or glue-in extensions? Then you’ll find this hand-tied or machine weft process intriguing and the obvious choice for an application process that keeps your hair healthy. 

This process helps to prevent breakage while adding incredible length and fullness even if you have fine or thin hair. If you’re concerned about the weft extensions showing with certain hairstyles, be sure to consult with your stylist beforehand.

Whether you have thick, wavy, straight, or fine hair, tie-in extensions can be an option for you.

If you are experiencing new or active hair loss, let your stylist know as there might be a different application that’s better for you.

What To Expect

The process is something one should be prepared for beforehand. It is 100% normal for these appointments to take 5-hours or more. Your stylist will also need to color match your tie-in extensions to your natural hair. Your stylist may show you multiple samples so you can get the shade just right.

If you want to change up your look, hand-tied hair extensions can help you out. Instead of matching your current hair color, your stylist may recommend trying extensions that are a completely different look! 

Yes, you can go from a short-haired brunette to a long-haired blonde! Be sure that you and your stylist are keeping the health of your hair, and your budget, in mind.

Your extensions should last for about 6-8 months. You’ll want to stroll back to the salon every 6-10 weeks to get the extensions moved up, depending on how fast your natural hair grows.
