Frequently Asked Questions

What are hand tied extensions?
Hand tied extensions are a type of extension used by a sewn in method. They are slim, light weight wefts that are sewn onto a row of beads attached to the natural hair. This is the best extension technique for creating luxurious volume, length and body while preventing damage to the natural hair. Once hand tied extensions are installed, they look and feel completely natural. They can be colored, washed, curled, and up styled just like the natural hair. Many stylists and clients prefer hand tied extensions due to their comfort, flexibility, and seamless natural finish.
Why hand tied extensions?
With hand tied, there is no tape or glue. This means no sticky mess when removing. There is less damage because there are minimal points of contact to the hair. Since all wefts are custom colored, these extensions are seamless and blend perfectly. This means no worrying about how to hide your extensions. There is no added stress to the scalp, and they are so lightweight, you will barely feel them!
How often do I have to move up my extensions?
Expect a routine visit every 6-10 weeks. The extensions will be removed and freshly reinstalled each time. Hand tied extensions are a lower-maintenance option - perfect for people with BUSY, active lifestyles! The longevity of the installation depends on how fast the hair grows out. The actual hair extensions last an average of 9 months with proper care. High-quality, 100% real human hair extensions are recommended for best results. Make sure to trim the extensions around the 6-month mark to remove any damaged ends. Maintenance appointments can be paired with color appointments as well (color is not included in maintenance fee & is priced separately).
Will my extensions blend in with my current hair?
Yes! I will create a custom color blend that will matches your hair, then cut craft layers and face framing to blend in seamlessly with your natural hair.
Can I wear my hair up?
Absolutely! This method is perfect for anyone who wears their hair up often. You can comfortably and discreetly wear a high pony/bun, half up styles, braids, pigtails, etc. do to the flexibly. Invisible Bead Extensions is the safest method due to the flexible attachment and application to your hair which helps keep your hair in a natural fall. Other beaded methods over direct your hair pulling it to one side causing pinkness and creating tension spots on your scalp. The method used to place IBE keeps your hair in the same direction it naturally grows giving you maximum scalp comfort throughout your wear.
How long are the appointments?
Extension installs generally take 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes per row, 2 rows being the average. Total appointment time for a 2-row install is generally around 2 1/2- 3 hours to install, cut to blend, style, and teach you how to care for your investment.
How long does the hair last?
With proper home care, coming on time to maintenance appointments, and the best products, hair generally lasts anywhere from 6-9 months.
How many rows will I need?
If you're just looking to add fullness, one row. Two rows if you're looking to add length. Three rows if you're looking to add mermaid lengths or have very thick natural hair and/or a blunt cut.
Who is a good candidate?
The ideal candidate has fine or medium hair that is at least at or below the shoulders without any short layers or blunt edges. You can still get these done if you have thick hair but desire length, or if you want to add in color without damaging your natural hair.
