WEFTS

FREEDOM TO CHOOSE

Attachment technique without sacrificing quality

Hair wefts are fast becoming popular and effective way of achieving longer fuller hair. Typically attached using glue, weaving or micro rings, hair wefts are a versatile way of achieving a more permanent application than clip-in extensions yet taking less time to install than micro rings or individual bonds.

Understanding Wefts

Generally, there are two different type of wefts –machine or hand-tied. Machine wefts is when bulk hair is fed through a triple-head sewing machine to add a reinforced stitch near the top of the individual strands. The hair is then folded over and stitched again to create the final weft. Machine wefts are by far the more versatile of the two as you can trim or cut the hair without tampering the condition of the wefts. Hand-tied wefts, as the name suggests, is done by hand. Individual strands are tied by hand into a few strands of fishing line. This is a very laborious process and these wefts cannot be cut to a smaller size. While machine wefts are much stronger, they are also much thicker and therefore might not be suitable for those needed to have the wefts sit closer the head.

  • Multiple shades of hair to be mixed into each weft
  • Hair can be attached more securely, and the wefts can be made significantly slimmer
  • With slimmer wefts comes increased comfort while more securely means less shedding and this greatly extends the weft’s life.

Our Wefts

Our wefts are made from Russian coloured and Russian virgin hair and are available in ready-to-buy as machine wefts or as a made-to-measure as hand-tied wefts. Prices will vary depending on length, width and how they are made. To enquire about prices please use the contact form on this.

What is a weft?

A hair weft is a collection of hair strands which have been woven on to a fine strip of cloth to create a "weft".

What attachment technique is best?

You can use glue, braids, micro rings, micro beads or clips to attach the wefts to your natural hair. Our preference, however, if to use clips if you want a temporary solution or micro rings is you want something semi-permanent.

How long do wefts last?

The Russian hair itself should last between 1-2 years, if it is properly maintained but you will need to have the wefts taken out and reinstalled every 6-8 weeks, depending on your rate of hair growth.

What does it feel like?

While everyone is different, it is likely to feels tight the first few days, but once the wefts “settle-in”, you are unlikely to notice them at all, unless of course, you touch your head.

Which is better? Handtied or machine.

Machine tied wefts will be cheaper and more versatile (as you can trim or cut the hair without tampering the condition of the wefts) while hand-tied wefts will be slimmer, last longer and likely blend better with your natural hair if it is more than on hue.
