Beaded Weft Methods

In recent years, hair extensions have become more and more popular. Some people use them because they prefer their hair thicker, some use it to add length and some use it as a protective style for their natural hair. Whatever your reason is, there are plenty of options to suit your needs.
Weft methods have been widely used for decades. Being one of the most commonly chosen ways, it has allowed people to improve their methods, invent new ones and create better, less time-consuming options that are much less damaging. Weft extensions don’t use glue or other chemicals, need no bond them with any special polymer and last for a long time without having to get them replaced for new ones. One of the best outcomes of not using chemicals or a long application/removal process is that the hair extensions you use last longer and remain in better shape and can be washed and dried with less of a hassle. Today, we are going to look at the best handled-weft methods for hair extensions.

Hand-tied Extensions

If you have been looking to get extensions but your options are limited due to your hair being thin and fine, Hand-tied extensions might be perfect for you. While the application is time-consuming, it makes sure almost no damage is done to your natural hair and that you get to grow it out in the healthiest way. The extensions lay flat on your hair and it is quite hard, almost impossible to detect them. You can wear your Hand-tied extensions for up to 6 weeks before you would need to go in for a tightening and the tightening process will only take 45-60 minutes. The hand-tied extensions are applied like most weft hair extension methods, using beads. Beads are attached to your natural hair at certain spots, on some cases a thin string is then pulled through the beads and the hair extensions are sewn into the thin string or just sewn to the beads. This natural way of applying hair extensions to prevent your hair from looking stringy and since the process requires no chemicals; it keeps your hair healthy and shiny. You can re-use your hair extensions for about 5-6 months and grow your hair healthily in the process.

Natural Beaded Row Extensions (NBR Method)

Natural Beaded Row Extensions, also known as the NBR Method, uses a very simple, fast technique to get your hair fuller, longer and gorgeous. This exclusive hair extension method is done by creating tracks in your natural hair with beads and a special string and sewing the hair extension weft to this track. Your natural hair doesn’t get damaged during this process because the weight of the extensions and the sewing are not on your own hair but on the beaded tracks created by your hair extension Professional.
NBR method is extremely natural looking because the tracks are created really close to your scalp to prevent pulling and the hair used in the process is usually of really high quality. It is also comfortable to wear, and you won’t need to worry about individual pieces being tied together or chemical adhesives or damage being done to your hair. Normal track hair extensions will have around 150 points of contacts with your hair whereas NBR has only 25. This means less of your hair is in the process and of course, less damage. The hair extensions will need a tightening every 6-8 weeks depending on your hair growth. The extension Professional will remove the hair and pull the tracks back to higher on your scalp, so they continue to look flawless.

Kacey Welch Method

Hairstylist and hair extension Professional Kacey Welch said she took a bunch of hair extension classes and seminars to find the best method but was disappointed at the end when she couldn’t find a fast, non-damaging hair extension style so she created one. Just like the NBR method, The Kacey Welch method uses beads to create a track and then sews the hair extensions to this track. However, with the Kacey Welch method, instead of using a string, your own natural hair is used to pull through the beads to create a better, stronger bond and this method also uses more beads to eliminate balding at the beaded points. The Kacey Welch method only uses 10% of your natural hair. This means less of your hair gets in contact with the process, providing a faster application time, less damaging way of having hair extensions and a simple way to care for your extensions. You can use your Kacey Welch method hair extensions for up to 8 weeks sometimes longer without needing any adjustments, which in the hair extension world is a big deal. Big celebrities like Kate Hudson are a big fan of this method because it does not compromise the integrity of your own hair, lets you grow your hair out without much styling and keeps your hair extensions at a higher quality for longer.


The beaded weft methods have been around for a long time for many reasons. They are the least damaging to your natural hair, lets your natural hair grow in peace, and the application process, although it may feel a little tight, it is pain-free. Ask your hair extension expert or hair stylist about what the best method for your hair.

Caring for Your Hair Extensions

hair extensions care

So you’ve decided to get hair extensions. We are excited you’ve chosen to try something new, and we would love to be your beauty coach. Extensions are fun, sexy and oh so pretty. But it’s very important to take care of them properly, and we are here to tell you how. Read on for all the do’s and don’ts of hair extensions, no matter which type you’ve chosen.

  1. The first thing to keep in mind is keeping your hair extensions clean. When shampoo and products build up, they can make the hair look and feel dull as well as dirty and sticky. They can also make it harder to brush through, which leads to pulling and eventually sliding out. The more you have to pull on them to detangle, the more likely they are to come out too soon.
  2. Before shampooing, brush the hair gently to remove tangles and surface debris.
  3. After shampooing, apply a very light conditioner from mid-shaft to ends, then comb through with a wide tooth comb. Rinse completely, especially near the scalp, to prevent build-up. Lift the layers of the hair where the extensions have been placed and let the water soak in thoroughly.
  4. Towel dry gently but thoroughly before applying a leave-in conditioner and/or heat protectant.
  5. Keep the blow dryer on the move during styling so you don’t overheat any one area, and use hot tools sparingly. The less damage you do to the extensions, the better they will look and last.
  6. Avoid using oil products near the scalp area where the extensions are applied. This can cause slipping of the extensions and require more maintenance than necessary.
  7. ANY products which contain sulfate and silicone need to be avoided.

Am I too old for long hair?

As I was preparing for this blog I googled it . I was amazed how many articles were written around this question. I still decided to write this and voice my personal opinion on that. I have had over 17 years in the industry and I can say I have not had one moment that I doubted if this is my calling in life. I believe that beautiful transformations happen everyday and the extension of a person’s beauty should be an extension of themselves. It should be real. It should last and stay with them. And it should suit them perfectly , both internally and emotionally.

A lot of us start feeling better about ourselves as we get much older. That is usually when we get to know who we are as a person and know what we want. That is usually when we are independently thinking of ourselves as individuals but this journey usually don’t usually begin till we are in our 30s or 40s and that is usually when we start aging.
I still don’t know who created the idea of if you are older you are not suppose to have long hair. Look at Madonna at 56, Goldie Hawn at 68 , Christie Brinkley 60.

They all have long hair but the key to long hair is healthy hair.

10 secrets that make your extensions last longer 

Knowing how to care for extensions should be a big part of the decision making when getting  extensions. At my salon we work with extension clients everyday. After all it still surprises me when some clients come with giant matted patches all over their head and it’s just then that they ask me what should they have done to prevent hours of removal time and possible damage to their natural hair. Low quality hair care products and improper maintenance is the number one reason that extensions don’t last as long.

1- Don’t shampoo or get the hair wet for 48 hours after the application. It takes 48 hours for bonding process to complete. Start by tilting your head back not forward and use your finger in circular motion to shampoo.

2- Brush,brush, brush. Everyone has natural shedding between 50 to 100 strands a day. It is common to loose a few strands of extensions over time . That is due to natural shedding or seal opening of each bond. Brush hair thoroughly ,starting from the bottom and working your way up.

3- Use high quality extension friendly shampoos and conditioners. Your products need to be sulfate and silicone free.

4- braid your hair before going to sleep or before going into chlorine or salt water.

5- Never sleep with your hair wet. It cause your extensions to tangle and mat with your own hair

6- Thermal protecting spray before using curling iron or flat iron help to minimize the damage.

7- Apply hair treatment from mid-shaft of the hair to the ends once a week.

8- Satin or silk pillowcase is the best thing to sleep on. It helps to protect hair and hair extensions from damage while sleeping.

9- Coloring and any kinds of chemical on your hair needs to be done by a trained professional who knows how to work with extension.

10-Make an appointment with your stylist every 6-8 weeks for slight trim to keep the hair looking healthy and shiny. Getting hair extensions is a huge investment and requires a bit different TLC.I hope these tips helps to have beautiful hair day everyday.

How do I know which type of hair extension would be best for me? 

There are some factors to consider when you decide to get hair extensions.

First, you need to decide if you want to get them done on a short or long term basis. Usually, short term extensions are used for things such as an event , photo shoot or maybe just giving your hair some time to grow out longer.  Or, you may wanting them for long term because your hair is naturally fine and thin or your hair never grows out past a certain length.

If you read my previous blogs you would understand how important it is to choose an expert to do the application process. You have to look at it as you would going to a doctor. If you have a heart problem you wouldn’t just go to any physician. You want a cardiologist who is familiar with the most advanced technology to treat you . The same goes for hair extensions.  An expert in hair extensions will be able to tell you what your choices are. The best way to get the most options is to find a stylist who is familiar and has experience with various methods and brands. They don’t just do one method or use one company as their supplier.

To sum all this up:

1- Determine if you want the extensions for very short time, a longer time or for as long as you care about your appearance.
2-Find an extension expert, even if you have to travel to her/him.
3-Have a clear budget considering your maintenance and products needed for up keep.
4- Trust the expert’s suggestions.
