Install hand-tied weft hair extensions with these tips: address color matching and differing hair types


Hand-Tied Weft Extensions

Hand tied extensions have become increasingly popular over the years due to their many benefits. Unlike other extension methods, hand tied extensions are created by individually tying strands of hair to a weft, resulting in a natural, seamless look. Here are some of the benefits of hand tied extensions.

  1. Natural Look

One of the main benefits of hand tied extensions is that they provide a natural look. The individual strands of hair are tied to the weft in a way that mimics the natural growth pattern of hair, allowing the extensions to conjoin seamlessly with your client's own hair. This means that the extensions will be virtually undetectable, giving your work a natural and flawless look.

  1. Lightweight and Comfortable

Hand tied extensions are also very lightweight and comfortable. Since the extensions are tied to the weft individually, they are not as bulky as other types of extensions. This means that they won't weigh down your hair or cause discomfort, even if your clients wear them for extended periods of time.

  1. Versatile

Another benefit of hand tied extensions is that they are versatile. Your clients will style them just like their own hair, allowing them to create a variety of looks. Whether they want to wear their hair straight, curled, or in an updo, hand tied extensions can help them achieve the look they want.

  1. Low Maintenance

Hand tied extensions are also low maintenance. Unlike other types of extensions, they do not require special products or tools to maintain. Clients will wash and style them just like their own hair, making this style a convenient and hassle-free option.

  1. Long-Lasting

Hand tied extensions are also long-lasting. With proper care, they will typically last for six months or more (we've seen ours last for years!), making them a cost-effective option. This also means that you won't have to go through the hassle of purchasing them as often or custom coloring them as frequently as other types of extensions.

  1. Customizable

Hand tied extensions are also customizable. They can be customized to match your client's hair color and texture, allowing them to combine seamlessly with their natural hair. This means that you can give them a natural and cohesive look without having to worry about mismatched hair.

  1. Protects Delicate Hair

Another benefit of hand tied extensions is that they can actually protect your client's hair. Since the extensions are tied to the weft and any tension is spread over the entire weft unit, there is less tension on your client's hair than with other types of extensions. This means that your client's hair will be less likely to break or become damaged, allowing them to maintain healthy hair even while wearing extensions.

Hand-Tied Weft Hair Extensions: Who needs em'?


Hand tied extensions work well on hair that is medium to thick in density and has a textures ranging from straight or slightly wavy (and sometimes curly!).  These extensions are created by tying small amounts of bulk human hair onto a single string called a hand tied weft.  These are then sewn onto the client's hair.

Fine hair?

Hair that is too fine or thin might be too "see through" on the top natural hair and expose the attachments, while hair that is too tightly curled or textured may make it difficult to combine the extensions with the hair. Additionally, hair that is excessively damaged at the root or prone to breakage may not be suitable for extensions, as the additional weight and tension can exacerbate these issues.

Great option for nearly all clients

Overall, hand tied extensions are a great option for almost everyone looking to enhance their hair. They provide a natural and seamless look, are lightweight and comfortable, versatile, low maintenance, long-lasting, customizable, and even protect your client's delicate hair. Whether you want to add length, volume, or both, hand tied extensions can help your client achieve the look they want. It's important as a professional extension stylist to determine whether hand tied extensions are the best option for your clients specific hair type and desired look.

Installation of hand-tied extensions can be a tricky process, so listen up!

Choose the right extensions: When choosing hand tied weft hair extensions, make sure to select high-quality extensions like Bliss hand-tied extensions that match your hair color and texture. High quality human hair from a reputable source will be the most natural-looking and are much easier to style.

Follow the right steps to ensure that they look and feel natural

Here are some tips for the installation of hand-tied extensions:

  1. Prep your client's natural hair: Before putting in the Bliss extensions, wash and condition your client's hair to remove any product buildup or oil. Make sure to dry the hair completely before starting the installation process.
  2. Section the natural hair: Divide hair into sections, starting at the nape of the neck and working your way up to the crown. Use hair clips to keep each section in place.
  3. Install the extensions: Starting at the nape of your neck, use a tiny crochet hook (called a pulling needle) or a loop threader to draw a small section of your natural hair through a bead.  Slide the bead up to the root of the natural hair. Secure the bead in place with smooth closing pliers.  Using a similar process, a row is created.  When the row is in place, the weft is sewn to the row.

After Installation:

  1. Blend the extensions: Once all the extensions are in, blend them in with your hair by texture blending, cutting the final shape and styling them as needed. An extension brush set can help you (more than you might think!!) to achieve a seamless blend.
  2. Care for your extensions: To ensure that your Bliss extensions last as long as possible, avoid using heat styling tools above 400 degrees and harsh hair products. Instead, use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner and let your hair air dry whenever possible.  We recommend Amika products (not sponsored - we just really like the way it cares for the hair).
