Installation in a Nutshell!
First we secure beads to your hair, then we hand tie the wefts into your hair with a durable string. Once all the wefts are installed and secure, the hair is cut and blended into your hair to give it a more natural look.
Check out this video to see how they are hand tied into the anchor beads.
Just like all extensions, hand tied wefts need maintenance every 6-8 weeks after your new install. After a new installation, you will rotate between two services until it is time to replace the hair. The two appointments are a push up, and a removal and re-install. Here is a breakdown of each maintenance services for hand tied extensions.
Your first service after a new installation is called a “Push-Up” service. At this appointment, we open the beads using a tool and push the wefts up so they stay close to your scalp. After all of the extensions are moved up, we follow up with a shampoo and style.
Check out this video to see how we push up the extensions.
Next: Remove & Reinstall
6-8 weeks after your “Push-Up” service you will return for a “Removal Reinstall” (R&R) appointment. In this service, the wefts and beads will be removed, we will then shampoo you and your hair extensions. If you are having your color done, we do this while the extensions are out. After, we will install new beads and secure the wefts with new string just like a new installation.

How to take care of your extensions
Its vital to use the proper tools and products at home. A soft flexible bristle brush is recommended for detangling, paired with a leave-in conditioner, lightweight oil or moisturizing cream for the ends of your hair and the extensions to keep them moisturize and looking fresh!! Depending on how much hair is installed, up-do’s can kind of be tricky but low-do’s are attainable.
There is always a Price for Beauty!
The cost for hand tied extensions depends on a few things:
- Hair Cost depends on where your natural hair length is at, and where you want your hair to be. Each pack of hair consist of (two) 12 inch wide wefts, with 20 inch length hair. For someone looking to add a natural bit of volume, 1 pack of hair will do. For a dramatic addition of volume and a few inches at most of length, you will need two packs of hair. For dramatic additions of length, you will need either 3 or 4 packs of hair, depending on how much length we are adding.
- Installation cost depends on how many rows of hair we need to install for your goal look. For volume, 1-2 rows does the trick. When adding length, you can have 2-4 rows of hand tied wefts installed.
We offer complimentary consultations, either in person or virtually over a zoom call to discuss your hair goals and give exact pricing for your desired look.
