How much does it cost to have hair extensions sewn in?

Sew-in extensions prices begin at $275 with an additional $60 for each separate track of hair sewn in. Permanent sew-in extensions cost less than fusion treatments but more than clip ins due to the work involved.


With this technique, stylists sew around strands of your natural hair to attach it to the long track of new hair using a fine needle and thread. Braid in extensions costs won't always be the same price as sew-ins because not all sew in extensions require braids. If you have extra thick hair, then you don't need to keep sections of your hair braided into cornrows first to support the extensions. Today's hairdressers have ways of pinning hair back, sewing in the extensions and then releasing the rest of the hair after securing the extension evenly across the head.

How Much Does a Weave Cost?

People using the term "hair weave" generally refer to permanent extensions sewn onto braids. Prices for hair extensions to be weaved in can vary from $100 to $600 depending on the type of weave you get, the length of the hair and the quality of your hair extensions.

You need about 6 to 10 tracks for a full-head weave, which may last a few weeks or up to two months. Remember that your total hair weaving cost will include the hair extensions plus the time the stylist needs to attach them properly. Please be advised that those with thinning hair should not get a traditional weave. This style is best for naturally thick hair.
