There’s no doubt that hair extensions rule the beauty industry, and every gorgeous strand adds instant length, volume, and tons of creative options. Many of you have questions about these incredible hair accessories and the critical differences between hand-tied and taped in. Allow our experienced and talented Westfield salon experts to share the details below. Here at Twisted Sisters, we go to “great lengths” to please our clients.
Both Methods Deliver The Glam
When installed by professionals at our hair salon in Westfield, you can rest assured that we handle every client’s hair with the attention it deserves.
Whether you have fine hair or thick hair, hand-tied or tape in hair extensions are two excellent choices that are kind to your natural hair, affordable, pretty much low maintenance, and create the least damage if any to a glamorous look.
The Hand-Tied Method
The hair extensions specialists at our luxe Westfield salon can help you select the best method for your individual needs.
When it comes to the hand-tied installation, these extensions are even suitable for damaged strands. Hand-tied means no tape, no glue, and no heat. Instead, we bead the natural hair, and then, we hand-tie or sew the extension weft onto your natural hair.
You can wear a high ponytail or top-knot because you’re getting a seamless blend. These extensions are only placed on a small percentage of your hair, so you’re getting impressive volume and length with the ultimate protection.
Hand-tied extensions create a long-lasting result of six months or more with the average reinstall of about 6 to 8 weeks.
The Tape-In Method
If you’re anxious to see a new you in hair extensions ASAP, then tape-ins are the way to go because, in about 30 minutes, you’ll be out of the chair admiring your gorgeous mane.
Tape-ins can best be described as thin wefts that are “taped-in” in between your own hair. The wefts are installed in “sandwich-like” bonds. Each weft comes with double-sided tape along the base. We peel off a clear sheet from the weft and apply it to your hair.
This method allows you to “grow out” with your hair, and the wefts do not tug or pull. It’s safe and probably the least damaging installation available.
With tape-ins, the average push-up is about 6 to 8 weeks, and then it’s usually recommended to switch them every 6 to 9 months.
