The type of hair extension can determine how natural your Vietnam hair extensions look when clipped in. The most natural looking hair extensions are those that are made from remy human hair , as the hair that’s sewn onto the hair extension wefts are facing in the same direction for a seamless finish. Besides choosing remy human hair over synthetic, there are a couple of different types of Vietnam hair extension wefts you should know about before choosing hair extensions that are right for you. They are hand tied weft and machine weft.
Hand tied weft hair is hair that’s woven into a few strands of fishing line. Hand-tied wefts are thinner and more flexible than machine-tied wefts. Hand tied wefts are sewn together by hand, making the weft portion of the hair much thinner than Machine Tied Weft. Although this type of Vietnamese hair extension weft is much thinner than machine weft hair, it is the most expensive and it can’t be cut either. When adhered to the natural hair, hand tied wefts lay flat against your scalp to provide natural look. Hand Tied Wefts can be sewn-in or braided-in by alicensed cosmetologist. Hand tied wefts are bound by hand and thin by design. Thin wefts are perfect for people with fine hair who want to avoid the heat or glue of tape-ins. Hand tied wefts, like tape-ins, lay flat without bulk. They can be more comfortable to wear and touch. They are not only difficult and time-consuming to install, but the wefts can’t be cut. If you attempt to cut them, the thin wefts quickly shed and become worthless.
The hand tied weft is flatter and allows the Vietnamese hair extensions to lay closer to the head giving a more natural look. As the hair underneath grows the flexibility of hand-tied wefts helps to keep the weft from sticking out from the undergrowth. Typical hand-tied wefts come in pieces about 24 inches in width. When sewn in, they can be folded over to best fit the track. The weft is flexible so it will not stick out or cause lumpy areas around the crown. High quality hand-tied wefts tend to last longer without shedding when they are put in by an experienced technician.
The clip in hair machine extension is sewn in weft hair by machine. This means that the hair is sewn together by machine to create a tracking effect and the clips are sewn on after. Machine weft hair is the most common weft hair to use, especially for clip in Vietnamese hair extension. It allows the hair to be sewn together, facing the same direction, and can create the most natural-looking results with your hair extensions. It’s also the highest quality of wefts and the most versatile, as you can trim and style the hair to blend in with your natural locks, without tampering the condition of the wefts. Machine wefts are easier to use and can be found in most hair supply stores. They are the most common type used. Vietnamese remy hair made with a machine weft can be soft and somewhat flexible. Single Drawn Machine weft hair will also last a long time without shedding. These wefts are easier to put in as the stylist can simply start on one end, sew in the weft, and then cut it at the end of the track.
