Micro Fine Hair Weaves
by Shannel Watson
An affordable way to add length and volume to your hair…
Hair weaves are popular with celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry. Hair weaving (also known as wefting) is a safe, glue and chemical free way to add length and volume to your hair. Our hair weaves are applied in small discrete rows that lie flat against your scalp ensuring the extension hair blends perfectly with your natural hair. We use double-drawn hair which results in a more natural finish, prices start from only £195.
“The weaves developed by Shannel Watson are braided into your roots. They don’t need to be treated differently to your normal hair. The process is worth it as I have full length and fabulous (not fake looking) hair!”
About Our Micro Fine Hair Weaves
The Hair Weave technique has been around for thousands of years and is a very traditional
type of hair extension perfect for both European
Hair. The Hair Weave technique is thought to originate form the Egyptians around 400BC. At this point the Egyptians regarded the length and thickness
of hair to be a visual representation of wealth and social standing. Cleopatra herself wore wigs and hair weaves to enhance her own hair.
The Benefits Of The Hair Weave technique…
Because this is an entirely chemical-free application process, there is very little risk of damage when applied by a qualified, experienced hair weave technician. Hair weaves are extremely easy to look after and tend to last up to 8 weeks with the correct aftercare. A hair weave makeover can usually be completed in under two hours and does not need professional maintenance; this makes it an extremely affordable hair extension choice.

Why Choose A Micro Fine Hair Weave?
The Hair Weave technique is extremely simple and involves firstly braiding the natural hair to create a sturdy foundation for the hair extension style. Then, a curved carpet needle and durable thread is used to reinforce the hair braid so that it does not loosen or begin to unravel. Wefts of human hair are then sewn onto the braided base in neat rows. A weft of human hair is basically a ‘curtain’ of extension hair stitched together. Hair Weaves can be used to add volume and length to your hair.
Choose From A Machine Weft Or A Custom Made Hand Tied Weft…
There are 2 different types of extension hair weft; Hand Weft and Machine Weft. The most common type is Machine Wefted, which is strong and sturdy. This type of extension hair is normally supplied in two long reams that can be cut down to any desired size without the weft unraveling. Machine wefts come in a variety of sizes and the thicker wefts can often be split into separate wefts with a razor to create two ultra thin wefts perfect for use around the hairline.
The second type of extension hair weft; Hand wefted hair, is essentially a seam that holds the hair together and is manually woven into the weft by a human and special attention is given to each weft making them thinner and more flexible and allows the real hair to lay closer to the head. Hand-tied wefts are made-to-order to match the exact measurements and thickness desired by the client. Shannel offers free hair weave consultations in her private London hair extension salon.
Suitable for both European and Afro hair.
Russian Hair Weave
The finest extension hair type on the market. Available in all natural hair colours. The fine diameter of Virgin Russian Hair means it has an extremely delicate structure; heated styling tools should be avoided if possible.

European extension hair is fine with a natural wave and is available in all natural hair colours. Cuticle-aligned and silky to the touch European hair is always a popular choice. For soft curls simply add leave in conditioner to damp hair and towel dry.

Brazilian extension hair is available in dark colours and can be coloured to achieve lighter shades. Perfect for those who want non-fussy ‘wash-and-go’ hair. Brazilian extension hair is available in a variety of textures from straight to very curly.
Lace Fronts Provide A Perfect Finish For Afro Hair weaves…
are fantastic for adding a flawless finish to a full head hair weave. At Secret Extensions we custom make our lace fronts. They are available in 3 natural scalp colours to ensure a perfect blend with your scalp. We hand knot single strands into extra fine swiss lace and bleach the knots so that it looks like the hair is literally growing from your scalp. Extra fine swiss lace is almost undetectable, even very close up. To avoid a bulky finish, we make our lace closure at 60% density which is a very natural fullness, ensuring it is lightweight and a perfect blend with your hairline.
