If you're looking for a partial installation to add length or volume, then a hand-tied weft or hand-tied rows might fit the bill for a partial or full install. These come pre-cut, so do not cut them. Otherwise, they might shed. Hand-tied wefts are also preferable for thin or fine hair, as the weft is much thinner and not as bulky as a machine weft. Our hand-tied and beaded rows weigh 2 ounces per pack.
Machine wefts have a thicker track which is a better solution for women with thicker or coarse hair. The track can be cut and strategically placed to fit areas for your desired style. Machine wefts come in 4 ounce packs and are usually the best solution for partial or full sew-in weave installs.
