All You Need To Know About Our Weft Hair Extensions
Weft Hair Extensions are a hugely popular method to add volume quickly.
Here at Remi Cachet, we have a choice of wefts for all needs. To those that have fine hair and are after a boost of volume through to those who are dreaming of a long mermaid mane, you can find the perfect match.
So, where to start? Let us take you through everything you really need to know about wefts and make this your new favourite hair extension method to use.
We have wefts across both our Elegance and Luxury hair ranges. Here is where there are a couple of factors to consider which will help you decide on your choice. Theses factors include length, colour, weight (or hair volume) as well as price.
Overall, our Elegance range has more options for length, colour and weight and the range can last up to 12 months with good aftercare. Here is an example of what they look like in real life:
Whilst our Elegance range starts at a 12” length weft, for those who are after a Rapunzel mane then our show stopping 30” Luxury Weft is perfect!
One of biggest confusions we have at Remi Cachet is about our Half Wefts. Something to note is these are half the weight and not half the width of our Full Wefts. These can be added easily for those wanting to achieve a more voluminous look or to add in a mix of colour to their look.
Our IGTV's from our founder, Victoria Lynch talks you through our ranges of wefts. These are great to find out some more information:

From our Elegance range the weft tops are our unique flat top which lies discreetly to the head and combines lace, adhesive, and stitching to avoid return hair and to keep the weft shed free.
With the Luxury range, the wefts use the more traditional machine top weft with return hair.
The method we recommend at Remi Cachet is the Hollywood Weave. This method combines micro ring locks and sewing to safely and securely hold the weft in place. This is not only easy maintenance but it also reduces tension, allowing for natural hair growth in the right direction.
The stitching is also neatly tucked under the weft top so there is no snagging and no bagging of the weft.
Other application methods can be used, with lots of different names, so ensure you check directly before training in a method or if you are looking to have a weft applied, checking this at the consultation.
Depending on how quickly your hair grows, the weft should be refitted every 6-8 weeks. Below, Emily Jane Hair shows an example of healthy regrowth of a weft before removing and brushing away any shed hair strands, and re-applying the bonds and weft back up the hair. The Hollywood Weave method makes maintenance appointments very quick and easy, it’s a real plus for both the stylist and extension wearer.
For the removal process, the thread is simply snipped and the thread is unpicked with the micro rings released. Hair is then brushed to remove any trapped hair before washing. With good application and home care, there should be no damage to the natural hair and this should be left healthy.
TOP TIP: Hair Up? No problem! A U can be shaped on the weft fitting so the client can wear their hair up without it showing.
