For the past couple years I’ve been following stylist that offer hand-tied and beaded weft extensions. Each time I saw them I was blown away! I couldn’t believe the results that these stylists were achieving in a matter of hours – I thought it was too good to be true. The more I researched this extension technique, I knew I had to learn it and bring it into my everyday salon life.
I couldn’t believe the results that these stylists were achieving in a matter of hours – I thought it was too good to be true. I have tried so many different extension brands and installation methods and this by far is the best.
What Makes Them Different
I thought the best way to learn about hand-tied and beaded weft extensions was to have them applied in my hair. All I can say is… I am OBSESSED! My only regret is not getting them sooner. Whether you want thicker, fuller hair or longer luscious locks these extensions are pretty amazing. I have tried so many different extension brands and installation methods and this by far is the best. My favorite thing about these methods is that there is no glue, tape or bonding – which makes them so different from all of the other types of hair extensions (including being the least damaging technique for your hair).
You’ll also save money over time. You can re-use the hand-tied and beaded weft hair extensions for up to 9 months (if properly treated and taken care of). Which is unlike other extensions such as tape-ins, where you have to buy new hair every other time you get your hair extensions moved up.
Can you workout while wearing these hair extensions?
The answer is YES! You can pretty much do everything you’ve done before – wear it up in a ponytail, bun, braid or whatever style you like.
What are the proper maintenance steps for at-home care?
You can wash it, curl it, blow dry it just like you would normally do! They are a little high maintenance to take care of, but they make mornings really low maintenance. They hold a curl for days and make your styling, ponytails and braids look like you spent hours on your hair.
What products are recommended to use?
Sulfate free shampoo and conditioner and using a loop brush or an extensions brush.
What is the difference between hand-tied and beaded, as well as what the benefits of each are?
Hand-tied are thinner, more flexible and come in two sizes vs beaded wefts which can be cut to a more customized fit.
