BIG KNOTS! Why Do They Exist?
KKXTENSIONS Loves Little Knots!
We created a rule of thumb to help you get your ideal product made.
- Tell Vendors exactly what the heck you want! If they can’t accommodate or meet your needs, MOVE ON. Another vendor will. Vendors can grow WITH YOU & YOUR BUISNESS. These products will represent your business & face.
- Whatsapp video chat or FaceTime (they got your number anyway cuzzzz) vendors for EVERY ORDER YOU PLACE.
- REQUEST that they FaceTime you mid-way or once they finish (preferably) for quality assurance. SAVE TIME, MONEY, and a positive experience for your customer. No one wants to inconvenience the customer. Do NOT let them ship that! Once you have it, the cost to send it back would be bananas. Try to negotiate them sending you a replacement (remind us to talk about this on another sippy sip day).
- If you do not ventilate your own glue-less full lace units, please adhere to video chatting your vendor BEFORE they complete your pieces and dispatch.
Reduce the size of your knots by communicating with your vendor.
- WHAT TECHNIQUE does your company use to ventilate (i.e. single, or double)?
- HOW MANY strands do you ventilate per lace grid/knot?
Single-knot technique- A method in which hair is ventilated into the lace by knotting it ONCE. The smallest knotting technique in appearance, in union with using 1 or 1-2 strands (there is wiggle room for 2-3 strands). Lace pieces using this technique will shed faster (secured into the lace with only one knot). Tip: Extend Lace piece longevity by using knot sealer. We are working on adding this product to our site.
Double-Knot Technique- A method in which hair is ventilated into the lace by knotting it TWICE. Natural in appearance when 1 or 1-2 strands are used, & the knots are bleached.
Khrissy’s Knotty X-tensions/Kkxtenions loves both techniques, but prefers the double-knot technique for our customer’s laces’ longevity. We offer 2 centimeters of single knot, 1-2 strand hairline. Followed by 2-3 strand knots for a fuller finish. It's giving pre-plucked hairline for an immaculate, natural hairline. For one, it will last longer! The best part is it looks like it’s growing out of the scalp.
Here's the takeaway as to why larger knots exist:
- Cheaper labor for vendors
- Double Knotting technique
- Amount of hair used
- Machine made ventilation (Mass production!)
- Inexperienced/new employees ventilating
We mean, its "knot" always a bad thing.
