WEFT VS. OTHER TYPES OF EXTENSIONS
Weft hair extensions can add volume and thickness to your mane, and if you’re looking for a gorgeous, painless, and natural-looking option, we’ll be happy to show you all the ways our team of trained and talented professionals can make that happen. However, if you are on the fence about which options would be best for you and your lifestyle, here are some of our other favorites:
If you're wanting a quick and easy way to add length and volume to your hair, clip-in extensions might be for you. Clip-ins are synthetic strands that attach to the root of your natural strands with the help of a special adhesive, which makes them a great way to get long hair fast.

can be both easy and expensive to obtain, depending on where you purchase your extensions. Though they are not typically DIY options, it is still possible to install them yourself so long as you know how to properly align the extensions with the roots of your natural hair, and then seal them in place with either a hot tool or special tape. In addition, if you want to remove them, you will need to use glue remover (available at most beauty supply stores) and then reinstall them. Tape-in extensions are a great option if you don’t want to commit to a certain hairstyle for long; they last for about 8-10 weeks.
Weave hair is applied by braiding natural hair and then in place. It can take a long time to apply (four hours or more), and it can be uncomfortable because you have to braid your own hair very tightly. Weave hair is not recommended for people with thin hair or if you have no patience. Hair extensions can be a great option for those who seek a permanent solution for their hair. Since the weave is sewn into your actual hair, it will remain in place until you choose to remove it.
Proper training is often necessary for to look and feel natural. The Halo Couture team has been trained to apply and style weft hair extensions.
Weft extensions are attached to natural hair with a special adhesive, which is applied in the salon after your own strands are wrapped around false pieces of hair. These extensions can add volume and length to your mane, but they do not require the commitment of a permanent weave or dye.
