Hair Extensions, Hand Tied Weft

Hand Tied Weft

Hand tied weft services have become a huge craze in the extension market; with few companies offering education or even the extensions themselves, the demand is growing. If you’re reading this blog, you’ve probably heard about our new Hand Tied Wefts and are hoping to learn more, or are deciding if you should be offering this service to build your business behind the chair? Whatever the case may be, we’ll tell you everything you need to know about our latest system. Well, let’s dive right in!


Hand Tied Wefts are wefts that are made by hand, you might be saying, “well, what does that mean?” Essentially, the hair is sewn to the thread strand by strand, meaning the finished product is thinner, more flexible and seamless when applied to the head. Comparatively, the most common wefts in the hair industry are machine wefts, which are passed through a triple-head sewing machine to create a secure stitch to seal the hair in place. They are sewn or “wefted” to create the bundle of extensions.


Aside from simply adding more services to your practice, you will also have the knowledge to provide another option for clients who may not be the best candidates for other extension systems. They are also perfect for introducing to clients that are interested in extensions but are not yet committed. This is easy to do since everyone is a good candidate for Hand Tied Wefts!


For clients with fine hair, the hand tied option is a great way to add length and volume without compromising the integrity of the clients’ hair. Because the wefts are so thin- they’re nearly invisible in the hair, and with fewer bonding points, your client will never have to worry about the extensions showing through their thin hair. Hand Tied Wefts are also durable and stay in place when applied correctly. Clients with an active lifestyle, who are always at the gym, swimming, or running will never have to sweat slippage or discomfort! Just like our other extension systems, they can be used to add color, dimension and correct a haircut. No matter what the challenge or non-challenge, Hand Tied Wefts are a great option.

    As the beads grow out, do they not pull the hair that not lying in its natural pattern? I’ve seen this happen with other types of extensions where beads are used. Because your overdirecting some hair into the beads, as the hair in the center of the bead grows, it pulls out the hair that overdirected. Is this method any different?

    1. Aqua Hair Extensions says:

      Hi Jenna,

      Great question! This all depends on where the beads are placed in the hair, and the method being used. The application methods we are teaching are meant to work with the growth of the natural hair. We suggest to always grab the hair in rows where it naturally falls so it is not over-directing. This way there will be no tugging or breakage.
