Beautify Salon and Spa in Henderson Las Vegas now exclusively offers Hand-Tied Hair Extensions! Why exclusive? Because there are VERY few places here in Las Vegas who offer this method of hair extensions.
Why are they so special?
The hand-tied hair extensions method has been around for a while, but they are just now gaining popularity.
The reason being for the slow rise to fame is simply because of the difficult installation process. Let’s talk about what hand-tied hair extensions are, why they are coming out hot, and what the benefits are:
What are Hand-Tied Hair Extensions?
Traditionally, the beaded hair extension method has done the industry just fine over the course of time!
However, hand-tied wefts are attached by a professional’s hand and thin by design. Thin wefts are ideal for anyone with naturally fine hair who are looking to avoid the heat or glue of tape-ins. Hand-tied hair extensions, like tape-ins, lay flat to the head, without the bulk and the peek-a-boos (meaning you can see those extensions girl!).
Hand-Tied Hair Extensions are known to be more comfortable to wear and to touch.
This all sounds so amazing right! So what’s the downside?
The difficult installation seems to hold most stylists at bay.
They are not only difficult and time-consuming to install, but the wefts can’t be cut. If you attempt to cut them, the thin wefts quickly shed and become worthless.Hair Standard
Let’s get into some more detail.
What’s The Difference Between Hand-Tied and Beaded Hair Extensions
We wanted to provide a quick fact check on hand-tied hair extensions, in comparison to it’s more popular sister, beaded hair extensions.
Why chose hand-tied over beaded, if beaded is more common?
Both types of hair extensions provide voluminous hair that looks and feels natural, without the need for damaging heat and glue in the installation process.
As well, both installations are time-consuming and definitely require an experienced professional stylist (don’t try this at home kids).
Hand-tied extensions still use beads. The difference is that the beads are used to create rows across your head, using your natural hair. Hand-tied wefts are then sewn onto the rows.
Beaded hair extensions are small wefts of hair that are attached to small sections of your own hair with micro silicone-lined beads.
The biggest difference is in what you are looking for and what kind of natural hair you have. Beaded is great if you are looking for a thicker, more obvious extension, and hand-tied might be best for those looking for an added natural volume and length.
Installing Hand-Tied Hair Extensions
Hand-tied extensions cannot be cut and must stay attached as a single solid piece. Being unable to cut a weft into smaller sections makes the installation process a wee bit trickier for most.
Instead of customizing (cutting) multiple filler pieces where needed, the stylist carefully plans the placement with the row created by your natural hair. Kind of exciting right, to have a whole solid row instead of random little pieces here and there?!
Those with finer hair may be more attracted to this type of hair extension as hand-tied hair extensions offer a more natural-looking extension without the bulk that beaded hair extensions provide.
However, these extensions are great for all hair types, from thick to thin hair and are even customizable to the exact look you are looking for!
Hand-Tied Extensions Maintenance and Cost
We recommend 4 to 8 weeks for hand-tied extensions, depending on your natural hair growth. It also depends on how rough or gentle you are with hair extensions.
To tighten hand-tied wefts, the stylist will cut the string initially sewn in and completely re-sew it, and typically takes about 45 minutes to an hour and a half to complete!
Beautify’s initial installation price for 4 tracks starts at $399. Book today and receive a free set of shampoo and conditioner with your first install!
Are Hand-Tied Hair Extensions Right For You?
Choosing a hair extension type will be different for everyone. It is all up to what you are looking to accomplish with your extensions, what look you are going for, what your natural hair type is, etc.
There are a lot of options for good hair brands, there are more options when installing, prices are all relatively close to the same, and they all hold up well.
That said, hand-tied wefts do have a place. If you have thin hair, limitless time, and the cost is no option, hand-tied wefts might be better than tape-ins for some people.
