Understanding Hair Extension Types
Indique offers several types of occasional-use and permanent extensions to suit your needs.
Machine wefted or machine weft hair extensions refer to products which have been sewn or "wefted" to create the bundle of extensions. Loose or "bulk" hair is fed through a triple-head sewing machine to add a reinforced stitch near the top (root) of the individual strands. The hair is then folded over and stitched again to create the final wefted extensions. Machine wefted hair extensions can be found in our PURE, BOUNCE, HYSTERIA and SEA Collections. While mostly used as a technique for permanent extensions (sewn in), machine wefted hair extensions are also used as the base to create our line of clip in extensions in our Studio Collection.
Hand wefted or hand weft hair extensions. In this case, the individual strands are tied by hand to create the secure weft. This type of wefted hair extensions create a very strong, but much thinner weft when compared to machine wefted hair extensions. The end result sits a bit closer to the head, offering less bulk than the machine wefts. Currently, hand weft hair extensions are only available in our PURE Collection. Hand wefted hair extensions are typically utilized as permanent extensions, although they could also be used to create temporary or clip in hair extensions.
