Hand-tied hair extensions are different from their tape-in counterparts because the hair stylist applies the weft on the rows of beads using a thread and not a tape or adhesive as is the case with tape-in hair extensions where a person’s hair gets sandwiched between two pieces of extensions taped together throughout the head.
