What is WEFT?

WEFT or as they are also called Sewn-in or Weave hair is a sewn or woven strip of hair. They can be both hand-tied and machine-made, and each method has its advantages. WEFT hair can also be distinguished by the installation method

What is Machine-sewn hair?

Such hair is produced using a special sewing machine. Sewn in hair produced by this method is the most widespread on the market. They have a greater thickness and a lower price relative to the manual production method. Their advantage is that this strip can be cut into pieces, which cannot be done with hand-tied weft

What is Hand-tied weft?

It is made on a special tool. Manual production takes much longer. On average, an experienced craftsman can weave a meter-long strip of weft in 4-6 hours. Sewn in handmade hair has a thinner and more elastic base, less weight.

When WEFT is used?

Sewn-in hair extensions are well suited for girls with a thick hairstyle and healthy hair. They can be used both to add volume to your hairstyle and length. Unfortunately, this type of extension is not suitable for owners of thin hair because it will be too much load on your hair.
