There are two different types of wefts – machine or hand-tied. Machine wefts are made when bulk hair is fed through a triple-head sewing machine and a reinforced stitch is added close to 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 compromising on the condition.
Hand-tied wefts, as the name suggests, are created by hand. Individual strands are tied into a few strands of fishing line, a very laborious process. Hand-tied wefts cannot be cut to a smaller size, however, whilst machine wefts are much stronger, they are also much thicker making it harder for the wefts to sit closer to the head. With slimmer wefts comes increased comfort and the hair can be attached more securely. This means less shedding and this greatly extends the weft’s life.
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.
