Everything You wanted to know about Hand Tied Extentions

Hand-tied extensions are much thinner and less bulky than typical extensions, which can add too much volume to fine hair and look unnatural. Regular extensions can damage your hair over time, while hand-tied extensions are much lighter and cause less strain on thinning hair. For a seamless and natural look, hand-tied extensions are the perfect choice.

There are three common types of extensions that you’ve probably heard of: clip-in, tape-in, and sew-in extensions. While your appointment might be faster with these extensions, as they require much less attention and care to attach to your locks.

The process of getting extensions hand-tied takes a bit longer, but our stylists are here to take their time to make sure that your extensions look just right and add the perfect amount of volume to fine hair. Regular extensions can cause visible bumps or kinks in your hair, and sometimes tracks can shift around on your scalp, creating a lopsided look. The extensions we use for hand-tying are thin and lightweight, so they sit flat on your scalp and do not shift. With the variety of lengths and colors we have available, your extensions will blend beautifully into your natural hair.

If you’re dealing with hair loss, or you want to add volume to your fine hair, or you want to add length. Hand-tied extensions are the best option. You can leave behind the stress of hair loss and enjoy longer, thicker locks. Just head to our website and book an appointment with one of our expert stylists. Remember, it takes professional training to properly hand-tie extensions, so it’s best to come by the salon and see us! You can learn more about hand-tied hair extensions at Tribe Hair Co. by visiting our website.

Frequently Asked Extension Questions

What are Hand Tied Extensions?

Hand tied extensions are thin wefts of hair tied together by 2 strings, this makes them very thin and lightweight. When applying these extensions we create a row across your head with small microbeads and string. We then sew the hand tied wefts on to this beaded row. This method provides minimal points of contact between your hair and the extensions. There is no heat or glue used during installation.

How much does it cost and how much hair will I need ?

Pricing depends on your hair goals/needs. The amount of hair needed to achieve your hair goals is determined at your consultation. We usually recommend 6-8 wefts for clients with fine/thin hair looking for longer, and fuller hair. 10-12 for clients with thicker hair looking to add length.

How long can the hair last?

Hair itself can last up to 9-12 months depending on proper home care, or as little as 2 months if you do not follow after care guide lines. We retail all recommended products in our salon.

How often is the move up/ do you use new hair?

Every 6-8 weeks. We reuse the same hair, unless you want to change your color.

Can I tone / color the extensions?

Yes, preferably only by your stylist.

Can I lighten my extensions?


Is it painful?

Chances are you’ll be a little sore for about 24 hours after your installation. The first few nights they may be uncomfortable to sleep on; they feel tight like a headband and can cause light headaches. Ibuprofen is recommended before starting the extensions.

You'll adjust quickly, if you don't please let the salon know so we can make any adjustments necessary to make them more comfortable.

Will it damage my hair?

Just like color and heat styling your hair if not performed properly and cared for at home appropriately they can cause damage. We have been trained by Aqua Hair Extensions to install these extensions with minimal impact on your natural hair. No heat, tape, or glue is used in the process therefore never causing permanent damage if done correctly by an extension specialist, and someone who will educate you on proper after care.

Can you style them like normal hair?

Yes, we use quality human hair and it can be washed curled, styled like your own. One of the perks of extensions is they stay styled longer than normal hair and you can go days without needing a refresh.

What is the best after care?

No rough brushing. Use a paddle brush. No harsh waters (ocean water, pool water, hard water). Air dry/rough dry 75-80% before styling. Brush in the morning when you wake up, and before you go to sleep, brush and put in braid or low pony. No harsh products. Do not color extensions. Do not try to remove them on your own. Keep up maintenance and your hair will look as good as new.
