Linkies Track Weave Hair Extension Tutorial – DoctoredLocks.com


There are many benefits to using linkies for all of your weaving applications. First you’re going to be able to provide a quick installation with maximum coverage. You’re also going to be able to provide a stable base row. What that means is that there’s not going to be any slippage. So if you’ve ever had a braided installation that slipped
out over time, you’ll know what I’m talking about. Lastly you’re gonna be able to control the tension
at every single link in the process. To begin, you’re gonna need linkies in a color
that matches your root layer or slightly darker. You’ll need a microneedle. You’ll need closers. A weaving needle and thread. And of course your extension hair. To begin, you’re going to thread your rings unto your needle. Carve off a section of hair with your needle. That is about an inch wide and about a third of an inch deep. Make sure you don’t have any cross hairs. Next, carve that section into two. From this point forward I’m gonna call these legs. Gonna pick up your first leg, and slide a ring unto the natural hair. Next you’re gonna go down through that linkie and
pick up the second leg of hair. Gonna pull that so that it creates an ‘x’. By holding the two legs out. Then adjusting the tension. Make sure that it has a little bit of movement
so that it’s not super tight to the scalp. And we’re gonna flatten that into place. You wanna have a little bit of play in there
to make sure it isn’t gonna be too tight. Remember you’re also gonna be sewing on top this so it’s really important. Ok. You’re gonna take over the neighboring section. Again inch wide by a third of an inch deep. Make sure there’s no cross hairs. Split that section into two. Pick up your first leg. Pull it into the ring. Go back down, through the ring. Pick up your second leg. Hold the legs away from the center. Adjust
the tension with your closer, and close. Continue this until you’ve created your entire base row. The next step is to create your linking row. Pick up the two legs. Slide the link onto the first leg. Go back down through the link. And pick up that second leg. Again you’re creating an ‘x’ just you did in the first row. Use your closing tool to adjust the tension. And crimp that into place. Again you should have a bit of movement. Continue to
link neighboring sections until you’ve completed your linking row. The next step is to apply your extension hair. You’re gonna cut your weft so that it fits just beyond the base row. You’re also going to add a coverage layer. That coverage layer needs to be slightly shorter than your main extension piece. To begin lock these rows together with your weaving thread. You want your top extension layer to extend beyond your coverage layer. So that these ends create a nice smooth transition. Go underneath your base row. And also underneath your thread. Since we’ll be going out to the ends you’ll wanna pull your first leg underneath so that it doesn’t stick out. Start at the interior. Work your way out towards the ends. Then work your way back towards the interior of your weft. When you get to the second end do the same thing. Pull the leg underneath. And sew out to the edge. Sew until your edge is secured. And then do a couple stitches back towards the interior. This will allow your knots to remain on the
inside and not at your transition points. To tie off, first, create one simple knot. Then with your needle, go underneath the weft, and pull one of the legs of thread around. Using these two legs of thread do several knots to secure your weft. Clip away any remaining thread. This can be used for accent panels or for a full
installation. Continue until you have finished your desired style.
