Do you want to try hair extensions but do not know what to choose: hand-tied weft extensions or beaded weft?
In this article, we will explain the difference between these two hair extension methods. Now, you’ll easily understand what to choose for your hair or for your clients.
Beaded Weft Hair Extensions Pros and Cons
Each extension method has its pros and cons.
Let’s start with the pros of beaded weft:
- Natural strands will not be damaged with high temperatures or glue, which can happen with fusions or tape-ins.
- It doesn’t take too much time, so it suits those clients who can’t spend a lot of time in the hair stylist’s chair.
- If done incorrectly microbeads can cause damage or even hair loss.
- Not suitable for soft, fine locks that cannot withstand such tension.
- It can cause headaches and be uncomfortable in wearing.
Hand-Tied Hair Extensions Pros and Cons
Hand-tied weft extensions are one of the most popular and safe methods to change your hairstyle.
Advantages of this procedure:
- It’s not damaging to your hair: the extension strands are sewed in around your head into a thin braid.
- New comfort level: unlike beaded wefts or tape-ins, these extensions are almost undetectable. This means you won’t have a headache like you would with microbeads or ribbons.
- No loss of length while reapplication: the braid is unravelled and remade again. With proper maintenance, this type of hair extensions can last between 6-9 weeks.
- Undetectable for people around: the strands look absolutely natural!
And there is also a disadvantage:
If the braids are too tight they can be uncomfortable or even cause headaches.
In addition, the material used for the extensions is of great importance.
We recommend buying products directly from a supplier. At the I Love Slavic Hair online store you will find a wide selection of premium-quality materials, which perfectly fit natural strands and will certainly appeal to all your clients!
