The two are different types of extension application types. Understanding the differences between these two techniques is crucial when it comes to selecting the one that suits you. In this blog post we will explain each of them to help you make a more informed decision. 

Weft Hair Extensions San Diego

Weft hair extensions involve attaching a curtain of hair, known as a weft, to your natural hair. This is done by essentially sewing the weft into small braided sections of your hair or by using microbeads for a bead-and-sew technique. This type of application is best for those with thick hair. It’s also great because this type of application will make your extensions last you much longer. 

Tape Hair Extensions San Diego

Tape-in hair extensions involve attaching thin strips of hair to sections of your natural hair. The extensions are applied using medical-grade adhesive tape. This is a great hair extension technique for those with fine to medium hair, those seeking very quick application, and easy removal.
