Hand-tied wefts make a great option for hair extensions. They are less likely to suffer breakage, are undetectable, and are cheaper than microbeads. Hand-tied weaves can be paired with other types of extensions to offer versatility.
Hand-tied wefts prevent breakage
Extensions made from hand-tied hair are less likely to break. These extensions are made of natural hair pieces that are sewn together to create braids. They are also less noticeable than tape-in extensions. These extensions must be taken care of. They will last longer if you keep them regularly trimming and deep conditioning. Additionally, hand-tied weaves cost twice more than tape-ins however, they come with more versatility and top installation services.
Weft extensions made of hand can be applied in about two to three hours depending on the density and the number of rows you wish to add to your hair. Hair extensions that are hand-tied using weft last between six and twelve months. Because they are light and require little maintenance, they are an excellent option for delicate or fine hair.
They are not easily detected
Hair extensions tied with a hand are invisible and feel natural. These hairpieces are connected to microbeads or threads and are totally undetectable. They are light and flexible so you can wear them any way you’d like. In addition, they can be layered to maximize versatility.
Hand-tied hair extensions can be stacked to give them an even more full-looking appearance which isn’t possible with tape-in extensions. They can also be kept longer, but you will need to take extra care. Extensions that are hand-tied must be cleaned daily at the roots and should never be air-dried. They require very little care but they can be very itchy for the initial few days.
Another reason to choose hand-tied extensions is that they don’t require glue or tape to attach. They blend seamlessly with natural hair because they’re 100 100% human hair. Hand-tied wefts are also lighter and less noticeable.
They are less expensive than microbeads
Hair extensions tied with a hand are secured to natural hair with silicone lining. To create extensions, the stylist will separate each hair strand into sections and then attach a row of silicone-lined beads to it. This creates a smooth hairline.
Micro beads are cheaper, however they aren’t as safe. The aluminum used in microbeads is very soft and can clamp up, and then twirl the hair extension. Also, hand-tied hair extensions are more durable and last longer than microbeads.
The price of microbead extensions can range from $300 to $600 depending on the length and the type. Microbeads aren’t easy to blend in and don’t look like natural. Not every stylist is skilled in the art of knotting microbeads.
They are adaptable
Wefts tied by hand can increase the length and volume of your hair. They don’t require heat or adhesives to apply and don’t leave a remnants when removed. These extensions can be worn alone or paired with other types of extensions to provide an endless variety of styles. They are also easy to care for.
Hand tied extensions are lighter weight than extensions made with machines and are more comfortable. They allow you to achieve more natural-looking ponytails and hairstyles. They can last anywhere from six to eight weeks depending on the style. The drawback of this style is that you need be checking in on a regular basis to ensure the hair is still holding together. Additionally they don’t perform well for hair with curly or kinks. Sew-in wefts work better for thick or curly hair.
They prevent lumps at the crown
Hand-tied weft hair extensions eliminate lumps on your head, that can result from machine-wefted hair extensions. The rows of hair are tied to beadwork with the help of the stylist who sews them into to distribute the weight evenly and create the foundation for a secure and stable base. Contrary to machine-wefts that are able to pull hairline away and are more dense, hand-tied wefts won’t damage the natural hair.
In addition, hand-tied hair extensions are more versatile than wefted hair extensions since the natural hair isn’t needed to cover the seams at the roots. You can even mix wefts with smaller extensions.
