What are invisible weft hair extensions and how are they installed?

Invisible weft hair extensions are seamless extensions that are installed onto the hair in rows by using a Beaded Weft Track System to create a track. The wefts are placed onto the scalp and beaded into the hair. Then, you proceed to cut the extension and blend it into your hair seamlessly.

Steps for installing invisible weft hair extension:

Determine the rows of hair needed for the extensions depending on the volume needed.

Create the beaded track by dividing your hair into sections and then feed the sections of your hair through a small bead. Repeat this process while making 1-inch increments until you have created a track of your natural hair along the entire row. You will be attaching the extensions on the completed track which will be the attachment point.

The stylist will then tie or sew the weft of extension to your hair securely onto the row that has already been created.

Since both the weft and attachment points are thin, there won’t be a noticeable swelling or lifting, but the extension will be completely visible.

Your stylist can also add a root shadow to improve the seamless blend between the extension and your natural hair colour.

It often takes between 1 and a half to 3 hours to install this invisible weft hair extension.
