  • Hair extensions look best when they ENHANCE what you already have. Not every woman wants to completely transform but EVERY woman wants to be ENHANCED! Lets face it....that's why we wear make up, get our nails done, highlight our hair, etc. Top Knot Extensions can show you how to ENHANCE yourself!!!

     It is important that you know that THERE IS NOT ONE, SINGLE PERFECT METHOD. If a stylist only does 1 method I wouldn't  consider them an extension "specialist". The reason is simply that every person is different. No one has the exact hair, the same growth pattern, the same lifestyle and the same desired results.

     

  • I picked the TK Hybrid Sew-In method  for Jessica. Let me tell you why....This is Jessica's first time wearing hair extensions. And let me tell you, it takes some getting use to wearing extensions!!! The key is to START OFF SLOW.

    The other reason I picked the TK Hybrid Sew-In method for her is, it is VERY comfortable.

    This is my "GO TO" Sew in method because it is so fast, comfortable and will not leave bald spots! YES..... bald spots....YEIKS!! Some sew in methods will, so be careful.

    Like I mentioned, I wanted to start off slow with Jessica and just add a little fullness for her. I sewed in 1 row but stacked 2 wefts of hair on that 1 row. I will usually add 2-4 wefts of hair on each row for most clients. With Jessica I only did 2 because I didn't want it to be too bulky for her to start.

    Lets talk about placement...Placement is OH, SO IMPORTANT! You need to think about how your client sleeps, how they like to pull their hair back, where could they use the added fullness  and all at the same time,  doing your best to keep them out of site from the rest of the world. So you can see I placed Shannons row up high enough that it won't be uncomfortable to sleep in but won't be seen. and far enough forward to fill in her thin sides

  • And WHA-LA!!! She has hair! This took me about 1 hour to sew in and blend. Extensions don't have to take all day. That is one of the benefits of "Enhancing" not "transforming" it is both FAST  and AFFORDABLE!

     Ok so lets break it down. Here is the info I know you are all wondering

    What is the maintenance time for using this method? on average 8 weeks

    How often will the hair need to be replaced? Well, that depends....If you are using the TK Hybrid Weft, it will last much longer than others because it is full cuticle hair. On average about 9 months.  (Look for a future post explaining how "Full Cuticle Hair" is better than the rest) 

    How do I know when the hair is ready to replace? Most extension hair will start to tangle and matt this is the sign that it is time to replace it. TK Hair is such high quality the hair will not get tangly for you. you will know it is time to get new hair when the weft starts thinning (on average around 9 months)

    If you are a stylist or salon owner and want to order you clients some "enhancement" using this method email info@topknotextensions.com for training information.
