If you’ve been looking for low maintenance hair extensions that are practically
invisible in most hair types and blend naturally into your current hair, we’ve got
DH Estetica now offers beautiful hand tied hair extensions with
100% human hair. These incredible extensions not only look natural but since
they are a type of weft that is hand sewn in, they offer the thinnest track of hair
making them light and versatile. If you don’t know a lot about hand tied hair
extensions, keep reading below and we’ll tell you more about the method, pros
and cons, how long you can expect them to last, and more.
The Method of Hand Tied Hair Extensions
Hand tied hair extensions are a type of weft (a collection of hair strands woven on
a fine strip of cloth) that are hand sewn into your natural hair. Wefts can vary in
size but the ones for hand tied hair extensions are one of the thinnest available.
That makes them highly desirable for many people as they are very light and
blend well with your natural hair.
This method uses no glue, heat, or tape.
The process of getting this type of hair extension starts the same as most others.
You should first visit or call a hair salon and make an appointment for a
consultation. This first step is essential as it allows the stylist to look over your
hair and color and texture match extensions or discuss color options with you. If
you want to color your hair, your stylist will do that first and then match the
extensions to it. During this consultation you can also discuss the length you’re
looking as well as get any questions answered that you may have.
On the actual day of hair extensions installation you should expect to spend two
hours having them hand sewn in. The method of having the hand tied extensions
put in first starts with putting small sections of your natural hair through silicone
microbeads. One to three rows of these beads are applied around the head in a sort of horseshoe type shape. Once all of the microbeads have been placed, the stylist will begin to sew the hair pieces (or wefts) to the beads in rows.
Pros and Cons of Hand Tied Hair Extensions
Hand tied hair extensions have many pros and very few cons which is one of the
reasons why they’re so popular. Here is a basic overview:
Less expensive than other methods
Less time in the salon
Wefts may be reused for many times
Allows to create a solid plane “Cleopatra” cut
Blends very well
You can still wear your hair up or down
Style your hair as you wish with heating tools
You can combine extensions and color visits 2 in 1 since you will have to
tighten the wefts every 5 weeks on average
Require more frequent salon visits compared to other methods, every 5
weeks on average
May feel heavier than some other methods
Putting your hair up may be tricky in the beginning but you will find your
Hand tied hair wefts will serve you for about a year as long as you’re caring for
them properly. However, as we stated above, you will need to head to your salon
at least once every 4 to 8 weeks in order to have the rows tightened.
Coloring and Styling Extensions
At DH Estetica, we always use 100% Remy human hair extensions. That means
that you are free ещ style them any way you’d like! If your color needs a touch up
when you come in to get your rows tightened, we can do that. If you’re at home
and you want to curl, crimp, or straighten your hair, you absolutely can. This is the
main reason we only use 100% human hair and recommend you don’t use
anything else. If you have any questions about styling your hair at home, your
stylist will be happy to help you and show you tips and tricks.
A common complaint about hair extensions is not being able to wear your hair up.
That is not the case with hand tied hair extensions! You can wear your hair up in a
ponytail, messy bun, high bun, and even braid it.
