HAND TIED EXTENSIONS

This is the newest and least damaging installation method of extensions on the market currently.

Hand Tied Wefts, which are exactly as they sound. They are the thinest most natural lightweight extensions. They are applied with beads and string. No glue, heat, or tape, for minimal points of contact. They can be added for fullness, length, or a color change, without damaging your own hair.

They are the most versatile allowing easy styling of ponytails and braids. They are not for everyone. Top layer needs to be cheek to chin level. Shorter can be done but I will not cut into the top layer of your own hair, but prefer an extra row or styling until this grows some.

Thick Coarse hair clients may still want to consider tape ins. The amount of hair needed to blend you own natural density with the extension would be alot resulting in a higher budget and heavier weight on the head. Lots of time and maintenance taking care of all of that extra hair! 

They need to be reset most likely at 8 weeks some 6 if hair is fine or grows quicker. Hair needs to be replaced 6 mos to a year depending on client lifestyle and care.

They need sulfate free shampoo, weekly mask, and brushed and oiled daily. Extension hair does not get natural oils from you scalp so you would need to replace that with product. Sleep with low pony or braid. Coat hair with water and conditioner before swimming or ocean. Base of weft must be blow dried to prevent matting or trapped moisture.

When going from shorter lengths like bobs to longer extensions. Additional rows or styling would be required. I educate and show you how to style your extensions at your initial appointment to help with blending to see which route is best for you and your beauty budget.

Any placement or discomfort issues can be corrected at your first reset appointment. 6-8 weeks.

Extension wearing is a luxury and maintenance service. We are in this together.

By confirming an appointment you agree to care and maintain extensions to the best of your ability and release all imagery taken during your transformation.

 

Failure to care for extensions may cause damage. If damage is visible, stylist reserves the right to remove extensions to protect integrity of the natural hair until damage is resolved and client can maintain properly.
