You're rocking hand tied and beaded wefts yet you feel lesser than confident because you know you could do a better job! Bottom line is you want to cut the weft and experience and sources discourage you to do so.
Sadly, you are mistaken and the wefts (if you use the ones we use) will not shed if you follow the simple video below. YES, I understand it is still a risk taken. But trust me when I say, I cut 90% of hand tied wefts. Otherwise the distribution of hair isn't how I need it to be.

Oh and hey! There is a new Vendor that just launched a Beaded Row that mimics a machine weft which can be cut organically and doesn't require any thread! Stay tuned for an upcoming blog about this exact topic.
