What are hand tied hair extensions?
Hand tied hair extensions are lengths of loose hair that are tied by hand into wefts. These should not be confused with machine tied wefts, which are similar, but are sewn together by machine. There are many ways that hand tied or machine wefts can be attached to your natural hair and many of them use sewing and micro beads. Beaded weft or sew in techniques are known for being the healthiest way to add a large amount of hair all at once, and they are the best long-term technique for dramatic transformations in length and volume.
These extensions and techniques have developed many different names, including sew in extensions, hand tied wefts, mermaid hair, natural beaded wefts or rows, braidless sew ins, and yes, even white girl weaves. Your stylist at The Beautiful Co. will be able to answer any questions you might have about these related, but sometimes confusing descriptions.
How long do hand tied hair extensions last?
Hand tied hair extensions should last from 9 months to a full year because the weft can be reused and moved as your hair grows. You can also get more life out of your extensions by taking good care of them! We recommend brushing regularly, staying out of salt water and chlorine, using paraben and sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, and making sure your hair is dry when you sleep to have the best experience with hair extensions.
What does the process look like?
At The Beautiful Co., we are comfortable with walking you through your first time with hand tied hair extensions. We start with a free consultation where we listen to your hair goals, and come up with a solution together that helps you achieve them. During the consultation, we will find the exact match for your hair color, length, and texture. Once we decide on a plan, we will make your extension appointment and require pre-payment to order your hair extensions. When your appointment date arrives, we will prep your hair and begin installing the extensions to your existing hair. Our technique is a blend of other popular techniques and is adapted to your specific hair type, density, situation, and desires. We usually finish with a cut and style, where you can finally see the amazing results!
How much do hand tied hair extensions cost?
Pricing for these hair extensions varies based on the color, length, and amount of hair being installed. All inclusive prices can range from $650 to $1400 and above.
Where do the hair extensions come from?
We use a mix of hand tied extensions from Laced Extensions, Bombshell Extensions, and Top Knot Extensions. We require all hair to be 100% natural human cuticle-intact remy hair, which means it is the highest quality and oriented in the same direction as your existing hair to prevent tangling. This hair is color processed with the most gentle and natural methods available to preserve the cuticle and give you the healthiest, longest lasting hair.
How should I take care of my extensions?
We recommend brushing regularly with a special hair extension brush, staying out of salt water and chlorine, using paraben and sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, and making sure that your hair is dry when you go to bed at night. We also suggest using Know Knott made by Original & Mineral, which is a leave-in conditioner detangling spray. Rest easy, as your stylist at The Beautiful Co. Salon will be in contact with you every step of the way after installation to make sure your experience with hand tied extensions is an amazing one!
