Hand Tied Extensions

Hand Tied Extensions by KMXtend Hair Extensions

What are hand tied hair extensions? & how do I install hand tied hair extensions?

Hand tied extensions (also called tie-in hair extensions) are usually hair strands bound to one large weft. A hand tied weft bundle is made up of eight 11-inch broad wefts. Because the wefts are already in the tiny width size, they don't need to be trimmed, making installation easy for stylists. The hand tied extensions are made up of strands of hair that are knotted or bonded by hand to a thin weft top. Hand tied weft hair extensions are attached without the need of tape, glue, or heat. To achieve the lowest weft-size feasible, these are a collection of pieces that have been pre-cut and hand-sewn. Cutting pieces on your own will cause them to unravel and become useless. Hand tied wefts may be used to give volume and length to your hair while also fitting in with your natural texture.

Hand tied extensions are a form of weft that is hand-sewn to provide the thinnest track of hair for the lightest, most undetectable hair extension application. Hand tied extensions are more expensive than machine tied hair extensions since they need more time to make.


The weft should not be cut because it would unravel; instead, based on the specific client's hair, the weft can be folded or overlapped with more than one weft per row to vary the size.

Applying 1-3 rows of silicone micro rings (micro beads are the same as micro rings) to a client's hair is known as the “Beaded Row” application method. From head to head, micro rings are spaced approximately 1″ apart in a horseshoe form.

Hair extensions that are hand tied are beaded onto a weft (s). The wefts are then sewed into your hair as closely as possible to your scalp. The amount of wefts required varies by people, however if you have really thin hair, you may require three (or more) wefts.

Hand tied extensions are installed individually. As a result, each and every strand of your hair gets beaded onto extremely little parts of your hair.

  1. Separate the hair and insert the wefts one at a time.
  2. Sew the weft to the hair.
  3. Sew the entire length of the extensions and tie off the ends.

To make things even clearer, hand tied extensions sections cannot be removed separately; the entire weft must be removed. You may remove one strand of hair at a time using microbeads extensions (pros and cons to both shared below).



Hand tied extensions are the most flexible wefts on the market. Flat and machine wefts are denser, and they do not bend as easily as hand tied wefts.  Hand tied wefts are the most comfortable and simplest to incorporate into high ponytails and updos because of this. However, all hand tied wefts, feature what's known as “return hair” owing to the way they're made. Shorter hair towards the top of the weft, around 3″ in length, is known as return hair. Return hair is required to make hand tied extensions. The cuticle in the hair extensions would be going in different directions if there was no return hair. As a result, return hair is an important aspect of the hand tied manufacturing. Return hair might irritate clients with sensitive scalps.

Hand Tied Extensions Pros & Cons

Tie-in extensions have both advantages and disadvantages. Obviously, we all have priorities that are more important to us than others, therefore I believe it is advisable to list them all to help you make a better selection.

Hand Tied Extensions – Pros

  • Unlike the microbeads implantation procedure, you will not lose random hair strands.
  • Your maintenance visits are less than a quarter of the time it takes for microbeads maintenance appointments. Why? Because your stylist just needs to relocate a few beads that are holding on the entire weft, rather than separate beads for each strand of hair as with the microbeads installation, your stylist will save time and money.
  • The thinnest weft we provide is a hand tied weft, which lays super-flat on the scalp for a flawless application without adhesive. Our hand tied extensions are one of the greatest choices for thinning and fine hair types, and they won't promote hair loss. They're also good for thick or coarse hair since the thin shape prevents hair from bulking up at the scalp, allowing it to flow smoothly from root to tip.
  • With these extensions, the fullness/length added is considerably more dramatic – you have so much hair and it looks much thicker and longer. Coming from someone with thin/fine hair, I really love it!
  • You can to throw your hair up on a ponytail or bun.
  • Because your hair is in a row rather as spread around your head, the hair growth doesn't seem as obvious.


Hand Tied Extensions – Cons

  • If one of the beads holding the weft loosens, a whole row of hair will hang loose. It’s not a pleasant experience if this happens.
  • If you don't show up for your appointment on time, you risk having a weft hanging in your ears or neck and may not be able to secure another appointment for weeks.
  • The installation is going to take a lot longer than the tape-ins
  • This is a far more costly way of extension.
  • Hand tied extensions are a touch heavier than the tape-ins in general. It may take some time to adjust to the weight, which is likely due to the fact that it is focused in one area of the head (the back) rather than being spread around.

Hand Tied Extensions Maintenance

On the KMXtend Hair Extensions, it indicates that you may go up to 8 weeks between hair visits. The weft will definitely grow with your natural hair as it grows out. The more time you wait between visits, the lower the weft will hang.

When a weft gets too far away from your scalp, it becomes unpleasant. If you wait too long it may begin to hang over your ears. .

You might be able to get away with 8 weeks if your hair grows really slowly (though I highly doubt it). 5 or 6 weeks, in my opinion, is a much better timeframe.

Caring for the hand tied is a little easier than tape-in extensions. To begin with, shampooing your hair is a bit less difficult. It's a bit simpler to brush around the rows because the hair is in rows (as opposed to the tape-ins where they are placed throughout the hair). The first row begins about an inch above the ears. After a few days without bathing, this leaves the top section of the scalp fully exposed for a nice scrub! You will need to thoroughly dry the extensions and the wefts. . You can brush your hair normally (because the top of the head is free of extensions) and blow dry and style it as usual.


Hand Tied Extensions FAQ’s

How much are hand tied extensions?

The price of hand tied extensions depends on a variety of factors. The pricing depends on your location and the amount of hair you require. For example, a full bundle is 8 wefts but you may just want three or five for just some added fullness. Obviously, depending on your requirements, your pricing will vary greatly.

To give you an idea, your first session might cost anything from $1000-$2,000. This covers both the purchase and installation of the hair.

Can you wear hand tied extensions straight?

Yes. You may put them on in whatever way you like. Straight, wavy, curly, up, down, and all examples of hairstyles. All you have to do is make sure you don't use any style equipment that are warmer than 350 degrees. It will fry the hair and also discolor the hair into a yellowish brassy tint.

Who should have hand tied hair extensions?

People with long hair past shoulder length and on the thinner side get the finest results with beaded row hand tied extensions. A different procedure, such as Keratin Fusion, should be used on someone with short, blunt hair. With hand tied extensions, thin hair mixes smoothly and looks very natural. If the ends of a client's hair are excessively thick or blunt, the ends will need to be thinned to blend; I like to use a razor for this. Hand tied extensions are the most pleasant and least harmful extensions if done correctly.

Make sure you get your hair extensions done by a skilled specialist. Experience is required for good hair extension installation, so select your hairdresser carefully.

Do hand tied weft extensions damage your hair?

They shouldn't harm your hair in any way. When it comes to your hair's health, don't pick a hairdresser just on the basis of price. Choose someone with a lot of expertise and certificates in the installation you want to do.

For hand tied extensions, how many wefts do I need?

This is all dependent on how much hair you already have and how full you want your hair to be. You can get hand tied extensions for length; or just get them for fullness therefore that will influence your decision. The amount of hair you'll need will be determined by your desired end goal.

Is it possible to wash your hair while wearing hand tied extensions?

Yes! Be sure to use a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner and not wash more than 2 times per week.  Because your hair has lost its natural oils, the less you wash it, the better. You should add in some oils to your ends also as your extensions won’t produce the natural oils that your own hair will have from your scalp. It’s very important to keep them hydrated.

Is it possible for me to color my hand tied extensions?

It's never a good idea to use hair extensions to lighten your hair, but if you need to pull through a deeper hue, you can. You may also add gloss or tone.

Is it possible to apply hand tied extensions to short hair?

Yes. Again, an expert hairdresser will know how to install your hair in the most natural way possible.

Is it true that hand tied extensions are unhealthy for your hair?

No, not if hand tied extensions are properly placed and maintained they will not bad for you hair.

When it comes to hand tied extensions, how long do they last?

There are a few aspects that will play a role in this situation. If you use styling equipment that are hotter than 350 degrees, your hair will get wavy and break much more quickly. You can use heating tools on your hair as often as you like, but make sure you use a decent heat protectant beforehand. If you follow all the property maintenance, you should be able to get 6-12 months out of a good quality set of hand tied extensions.
