When it comes to hair extensions, there are a few main methods that stylists use: wefting, braiding, and bonding. In this blog post, we're going to focus on the first method: wefting. Wefting is the process of attaching hair extensions to natural hair by sewing them into a track or strip of hair. There are two main ways to do this: with pre-strung beads or with a loop tool.
At Blú Smart Tools, the pre-strung weft beads are our patented product that replaces the need for a loop tool — making the wefting process faster, easier, and more efficient. Continue reading to learn the difference between pre-strung weft beads and a loop tool, and please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions!
What Are Pre-Strung Weft Beads?
Pre-strung weft beads are small, cylindrical beads that come pre-strung on a thread. To attach them to natural hair, all you have to do is insert the bead into the hair and pull the string through. The bead will then clasp onto the hair, securely holding the extension in place. Pre-strung weft beads are much easier and faster to use than a loop tool, and they provide a stronger hold.
What Is a Loop Tool?
A loop tool is a small, hand-held tool that is used to create loops in hair extensions. The stylist then inserts the extension into the loop and pulls it through, securing the extension in place. While a loop tool does provide a stronghold, it is much slower to use than pre-strung weft beads.
Why Use Pre-Strung Weft Beads?
As we mentioned before, pre-strung weft beads are much easier and faster to use than a loop tool. They also provide a stronger hold, which means that your extensions will last longer. Additionally, pre-strung weft beads are less likely to damage natural hair than a loop tool.
Should I Make the Switch?
If you're still using a loop tool to attach hair extensions, we recommend making the switch to pre-strung weft beads. Pre-strung weft beads will save you time and money in the long run, and your clients will be happy with the results. Shop our selection of pre-strung weft beads today!
