Hairlaya hand-tied wefts

1. Can Hand-tied wefts be cut?

Unfortunately, hand-tied wefts cannot be cut. This is only of the only downsides of hand-tied wefts, and if you do plan on having your extensions cut, you should consider hybrid extensions instead. The installation process and characteristics of hand-tied wefts prevent them from being cut, making it essential to decide the look and length you want beforehand. 

2. What installation method do hand-tied wefts use? 

Hand-tied wefts are sewn directly into the hair by hand without the use of adhesives or excess heat. Since hand-tied wefts are installed by hand, it is essential to work with an experienced stylist who is familiar with hand-tied wefts. You can find Hairlaya Certified stylists in your area with our Stylist Locator. 

3. What are the benefits of hand-tied wefts compared to hybrid wefts?

Hand-tied wefts do not use any adhesives during the installation process, whereas hybrid wefts use adhesives during the installation process. Another benefit is that hand-tied wefts have been in use and tested much longer than hybrid wefts

4. What are the cons of hand-tied wefts compared to hybrid wefts?

Since hand-tied wefts are older, they are not as advanced and innovative as hybrid wefts. Hybrid wefts build off the foundation hand-tied wefts created and have benefits like being able to be cut without unraveling. Hybrid wefts can also be installed in a couple of different ways compared to hand-tied wefts one method. 

5. Can I treat hand-tied wefts like my own hair?

Yes, you can treat hand-tied wefts similar to how you would treat your hair. You should take similar precautions when it comes to things like swimming, working out, going to the beach, and applying hair products. You should also have your extensions professionally treated every 6-8 weeks for maximum longevity. All in all, Hairlaya hand-tied wefts utilize real hair making the maintenance very similar to your own hair. 

6. Will hand-tied wefts require extensive maintenance? 

No, outside of routine care and maintenance every 6-8 weeks, hand-tied wefts will not require extensive maintenance. Since hand-tied wefts are sewn into your hair, the maintenance is incredibly simple and easy, and you should hardly notice they are there (except for the compliments). Regular maintenance will prolong the lifespan of your hair extensions so they can last up to two years. 

7. What do I do if my hand-tied wefts feel uncomfortable?  

Your hand-tied wefts should feel very natural and comfortable. If you feel discomfort, you should seek advice from your stylist to ensure they are properly installed. Preferably, you want to work with a Hairlaya-certified stylist as they will have the best idea of what is going on. Hand-tied wefts are extremely thin and light, making them one of the most comfortable options on the market. 

8. Will hand-tied wefts feel heavy?

No! Hand-tied wefts are one of the lightest and most evenly distributed extensions on the market. You should hardly notice they are there, and they should pose no excess strain on your hair. If your hand-tied wefts do feel heavy, it is most likely from an installation issue, and you should seek professional help from a stylist. 

9. Will hand-tied wefts damage my natural hair? 

No hand-tied wefts will not damage your natural hair. Hand-tied wefts do not use excessive heat or adhesives during installation, making them incredibly hair-friendly. Hand-tied wefts are also evenly distributed, causing no excess strain to your natural hair. In many cases, hand-tied wefts are beneficial for your hair, making them an excellent option for anyone conscious of their hair health.
