Weft hair extensions can be purchased from most beauty supply stores in either synthetic fiber or 100 percent human hair. Wefts are strands of hair that are woven into long, cloth bands. The bands, not the actual extension hair, are what you attach to your natural locks. Wefts are applied to your hair with a special type of latex glue made specially for hair extensions. Give your hair the length and body you want by applying weft hair extensions.
Create a horizontal part across the back of your head about 2 to 3 inches from the nape of your neck. Clip the rest of your hair away.
Measure the part and cut a weft slightly smaller than the measurement.
Apply a thin line of glue along the rough side of the band at the top of the weft.
Press the glue-side of the weft along the part, about 1/4 inch from the roots. Lightly press your fingers all along the weft.
Hold the extension in place for about 30 seconds to allow the glue to dry. Unclip your hair and create another horizontal part across the back of your head about 1/2 inch above the first part.
Repeat the applications until you reach just below the crown of your head. Extensions applied any higher will be visible.
Make a horizontal part about 1/2 inch above your left ear. Cut a weft slightly smaller than the part and repeat the applications until you reach just below your temple. Repeat this process for the other side of your hair.
However much we love our clip in hair extensions, there’s just one pesky problem that leaves us in one stressful scenario, our layers.
Layers be gone’ we hear you cry! But fear not, as we have the solution that will put a stop to your tormenting hair nightmare and your layering catastrophe, with the helping hand from layer blending weft hair extensions.
These types of wefts can miraculously disguise layers by blending your natural hair length with your hair extensions, to create sleek, Rapunzel-like hair. Instead of mesh, the layer blending wefts are sealed together with glue for a seamless finish. They also have two clips on either side to attach to your hair.
Take a look at our terrific tricks on to how to hide layers using layer blending weft hair extensions below.
The layer blending wefts are perfect for hiding your layers and for giving the illusion of long locks that are all the same length. To cheat your way to one gorgeous length, start by clipping in your set of full head extensions and leaving your layers out. Then section your layers and clip one layer blending weft hair extension to the hair parting that you have created. This will blend in your layers to your clip in extensions for an immaculate, sleek finish.
Alternatively, for a more natural look, you can clip the layer blending weft hair extensions on an angle to hide your layers.
Another trick for hiding your layers is to straighten your short layers with the longer pieces of your hair extensions. This will help to blend your natural and hair extension hair together.
We love how our layers magically disappear just by using layer blending weft hair extensions! What do you think of these innovative hair pieces?
