This week, we’re shining the spotlight on Volume Weft hair extensions!

This week, we’re shining the spotlight on Volume Weft hair extensions! Volume wefts (sometimes referred to as sew-in extensions, tracks, beaded wefts, or simply “wefts”) are a great option for anyone looking to add length, volume, or both to their hair! This method of hair extension involves creating a foundation with your natural hair and silicone beads in order to sew the extensions into your hair. The method of bead installation depends on the stylist’s training and each person’s hair. At the Amanda Moncur Salon, our stylists are trained in classic beaded rows as well as waterfall beaded rows! Both methods are versatile and comfortable, and which one your stylist chooses will depend on your lifestyle, hair type, and the look you’re going for.

Volume weft extensions are very popular at The Amanda Moncur Salon because they are long-lasting, durable, and voluminous. They can be styled just like natural hair and can be washed, blow-dried, and straightened without damage. As a Bellami Certified Salon, Bellami is the only brand we use. They offer Volume Weft hair extensions made from high-quality Remy human hair. Bellami Volume Weft hair extensions are known for their thickness, fullness, and a flat track that will be comfortable on your scalp, with minimal visibility.

One of the biggest advantages of Volume Weft hair extensions is that they can add both length and volume to your hair, pumping up even the finest of hair and giving you volume you never thought was possible. They can also volumize thick hair, making them a great option for most hair types. Volume Wefts are a full-coverage option, meaning you can cover more of your head for a better price than an individual method like k-tips or I-tips.

Volume Weft hair extensions are suitable for many people who want to add length, volume, and fullness to their hair. Volume wefts might be right for you if you have thin or fine hair and want to add volume and fullness, you have thick hair that you want to make longer, or you have damaged hair and want to add length while allowing your natural hair time to recover. Bellami Volume Weft Extensions would be great for you because they are:

  1. High quality: Bellami Volume Weft hair extensions are made from 100% Remy human hair, which is considered the highest quality of hair. The cuticles are aligned, which makes the extensions look and feel natural.
  2. Easy to use: Bellami Volume Weft hair extensions are easy to install and remove by a trained stylist using the beaded weft installation method.
  3. Versatile: Bellami Volume Weft hair extensions come in a range of colors, lengths, and thicknesses, making them suitable for a wide range of hair types and styles.

  5. Long-lasting: Bellami Volume Weft hair extensions can last 6-8 months with proper care and maintenance, and regular move-ups performed by a professional.

Volume Weft hair extensions require a trained professional for installation, move-up, and removal. That’s why our extension specialists have gone and continue to go through detailed, prestigious training. Volume Wefts also require careful maintenance and should be professionally removed to avoid damage to the natural hair.

Here are some tips for maintaining Volume Weft hair extensions:

  1. Avoid using hair products containing sulfates and alcohol, as they can cause the beads to slip out. We love the Bangin Extensions product line, designed specifically with hair extensions in mind.
  2. Brush the hair gently with a boar-bristle extension brush, starting at the ends and working your way up to the roots, to prevent tangling and matting. Do this twice a day every day. Morning and night! Do not brush the attachment point of the extensions, but do brush right underneath!
  3. Avoid sleeping with wet hair, and always put hair in a silk scrunchie before bed to avoid tangling. You can do a simple low ponytail, a single braid, or double braids.
  4. Wash the hair with a sulfate-free, gentle shampoo and conditioner, and avoid getting the conditioner on the bond area. Bangin Extensions or Paul Mitchell are our top recommended brands!
  5. Have your hairstylist trim the ends of the extensions every 6-8 weeks to prevent split ends. Bellami extensions are made out of natural human hair, which can split over time.
  6. Avoid exposing the extensions to excessive heat, such as from hot tools, as it can damage the the extensions. Always use a heat protectant before heat styling!
  7. Don’t forget to schedule your regular maintenance appointments, and to have the extensions professionally removed to avoid damaging the natural hair.

It's important to note that not everyone is a good candidate for Volume Weft hair extensions, and a trained extension artist should assess your hair to determine if they are suitable for you. Give us a call or head to our website to book your Extension Consultation today!
