Get ready to transform your hair and boost your confidence with this comprehensive guide!

I. What Are Hand-tied Weft Extensions?

 Hand-tied weft extensions are a type of hair extension known for their natural look and minimal damage to the natural hair. These extensions are made by hand, where hair is tied onto a weft that is typically 11”-12” wide (a strip of hair extensions) using a special technique that creates a very thin, flexible weft. This hand-tied method allows the extensions to lie flat against the scalp, making them less detectable and more comfortable to wear compared to machine wefts. You can apply hand-tied wefts to nearly all hair types. However, as with any kind of extension, they certainly have their strong points. While they provide a fair amount of density, hand-tied extensions are best for thin hair that lacks a blunt edge and your hair should also be at least shoulder-length.

II. Are Hand-tied Weft Extensions Bad For Your Hair?

 Generally, extensions introduce slight stress to the hair, especially to people who have fine hair. Among all types of extensions, the hand-tied method results in the smallest damage. If installed by professionals who know how to do it right, the extensions will have a minimum pull on your roots.


 The amount added to your natural hair plays a key role in determining the extent of damage caused by extensions. If you install many extensions, the result will likely be heavy and dense hair. Excessive extensions might also add weight and stress to your roots facilitating your natural hair to break. If you are thinking of getting extensions, It is best to do a consultation with a professional who has the experience and qualified training with hand-tied extensions. This way you get used to the extensions and how to maintain them.

1. Preparation The Essential Items

Here are the essential tools for installing, maintaining, and removing hand-tied extensions:

  • Cotton weaving thread to match different hair colors
  • Mini scissors
  • “C” shaped weaving needles
  • Bead threader/loop tool
  • Mini scissors
  • Silicone beads (2 mm and 3 mm)
  • Bead opener
  • Clips to keep wefts and hair in place

2. Prep & Sectioning The Hair


 Wash and dry the hair thoroughly. Ensure it’s free of any oils or products that could interfere with the application. Then section the hair into clean, horizontal parts. Start at the nape of the neck, work your way up, and use hair clips to keep the sections neat and out of the way.

3. Foundation Rows

 There are a few slightly different variations for applying hand-tied extensions but the most popular “Beaded Row” application method is achieved by applying 1-3 rows of silicone micro rings (microbeads are the same as micro rings) to a client’s hair. Micro rings are placed about 1” apart in a type of horseshoe shape from temple to temple to create anchor points along the parting where the weft will be attached. Keep at least 1 ½ ” away from the hairline.

4. Attaching the Wefts

 Place the hand-tied weft against the anchor points. Use a curved needle and nylon thread to sew the weft onto the anchor points. Start from one end and work your way across to the other. Then knot the thread at the beginning and end of each weft to ensure it stays in place. If more volume is desired, you can stack two wefts on top of each other and sew them together. Once all the wefts are attached, trim the extensions to blend seamlessly with the natural hair and style the hair as desired. They are very versatile and can be curled, straightened, or styled in various ways.

5. Tips for a Successful Application

  • Tension: Maintain consistent tension when sewing the wefts to avoid lumps or loose areas.
  • Comfort: Ensure the wefts are not too tight to prevent discomfort or damage to the natural hair.
  • Color Match: Double-check the color match before starting the application for a seamless blend.
