Machine tied weft VS hand tied weft
When it comes to choosing what type of weft to use, typically it comes down to these two contenders. They are arguably the two most commonly used hair extension wefts on the market today. Let’s go over why we would pick one over the other, talking about both pros and cons.
Machine Tied Wefts
Machine tied wefts are frequently to go to due to cost. They are less expensive when comparing to hand tied wefts. This is because of how they are made. When assembling the hair, it is done using a machine so mass production can be done much faster. Since they are assembled with a sewing machine rather than a person, the manufacturer is able to keep the cost low.
Hand Tied Wefts
Hand tied wefts are assembled together by a person tying the hair rather than a machine so the price can be slightly higher. This is beneficial for a track that is very discrete in nature. Historically, hand tied wefts can’t be cut along the track as they would unravel. This is what makes Harvey J Hair different from all other brands on the market as we have four points along the track where it can be cut to ensure maximum size customization for your salon guest. The track is way more flexible than a machine tied weft so they tend to be more comfortable.
This type of weft is best used for someone with fine hair.
Both hair extension wefts can be made with real hair or synthetic. (Harvey J Hair uses only 100% human hair.) Both types of wefts come in a variety of lengths, colors and can be colored by a licensed professional. Hand tied wefts and machine tied weft extensions can be treated and maintained like your natural hair. They can be washed, straightened, or curled to blend with your hair.
