Hand Tied Extensions For Different Types Of Hair

Hair extensions offer so much versatility. They allow you to try different lengths, hair colors, and hair styles. And while you may be familiar with clips-ins or other extension types, hand tied extensions are by far the most popular and provide the most styling versatility — especially with a tried and trusted hand tied extension method such as Invisible Bead Extensions®.

So, whether you have short, medium-length or long hair; fine, thinning, or dense hair; straight, wavy or curly hair… You can be sure that there are hand tied extensions for different hair types. In this article we’ll cover everything you need to know about hand tied extensions for all hair types.

Do Hand Tied Extensions Work Well With All Hair Types?

Hand tied extensions can work for women with different natural hair densities as well as textures. Whether you have fine hair or thick hair, you can wear this extension method. Do you have curly or straight hair? Hand tied extensions will work for you! They can also be installed in different hair lengths as well.

Hand Tied Extensions On Short Hair

Hand tied extensions are a great option for women with short natural hair. Because it is a weft extension, you get maximum coverage with minimal attachment points. You will need to have multiple rows installed to properly blend out the ends of your natural length, but it is possible with a trained and certified hand tied extension specialist. Proper placement of your rows, as well as skilled cutting, will ensure a seamless blend.

Hand Tied Extensions For Thin Hair

Are Hand Tied Extensions Good For Thin Hair?

Hand tied extensions can be a good option for women with thin hair. Thin refers to the density of your natural hair, meaning how many natural hair strands per square inch do you have. The lower that number, the thinner your natural density.

Hand tied extensions work on thin hair because they are extremely light weight. Other weft extensions can be too heavy, causing breakage and damage to the natural hair strand. With hand tied extensions, your stylist can layer the wefts depending on how much weight your natural hair foundation can handle.
