What is a genius weft?
Genius weft is a type of hair extension designed to provide more versatility for stylists and their clients. It can easily be cut, coloured, and styled to suit any hair length or style, giving you more room to play around.
More importantly, this type of weft is only 0.78mm thick, which makes it almost as thin as the traditional hand-tied weft. Once installed, your client will barely notice that she has them on!
Got clients with easily irritated scalps? The genius weft is a perfect match for them since it does not have return hair at all! This means your client will be more comfortable and will be able to enjoy the extensions longer.
How to install a genius weft?
Ready to recommend this to your gorgeous clients? If the answer is a resounding "yes," then keep reading as we walk you through the best ways to install a genius weft.
Let's start with the basics, shall we?
First, you need to properly assess the client's hair length, density, and volume. Additionally, you need to ask about the look they are going for so that you order enough wefts to cover their entire head. Here at Philocaly, we recommend getting anywhere between 1-4 packs of genius wefts for a full application.
Once you have your genius wefts and know the client's desired look, it is time to get down to business.
Here are the two best installation types: The original beaded row method and flip up method.
Beaded Row Method
This installation method makes use of silicone-lined nano beads, which allow the wefts to be attached securely and seamlessly. It's a solid method that'll work for genius, hand-tied, and flat wefts, making it a great beginner-friendly technique for stylists looking to expand their services.

Flip Up Method
Whether you're using your favourite hand-tied weft or the newest genius weft, the flip up installation is guaranteed to work well on any type of hair. It utilizes the same technique as the beaded row, but the flip up levels it up by introducing a new stitching pattern and placement for a more undetectable look. Even if your client has the finest of locks, they'll be happy to know that this method will significantly reduce tension and chances of breakage.
