Sewn In Weave
Sewn in weaves are the most popular type of hair extensions, a qualified extensionist should always fit this and will create 2 or 3 cornrows into your hair in either diagonal or horizontally across the back of your head. The weft of hair is then sewn onto the braid in your hair tightly. Your hair stylist should advise on how many rows you will need depending on how thick you would like the hair. Sewn in weave’s makes an excellent choice of fitting for many reasons, here are some of the main ones:
Fast Results – Sewn in weaves can take up to 2-3 hours depending on the thickness and weight of the design. Perfect for women who love to change their looks up and get instant results.
Instant Length – Women with shorter hair may not want to wait months and years for their hair to grow out. Similarly, some women may have received a haircut that is shorter than they wanted. In these cases, a hair weave is an ideal solution; you’ll be able to get the length, without having to wait for your natural hair to grow. A hair weave comes in lengths up to 30 inches, so you can get the length of hair that you want, instantly.
Natural Hair Protection
After years of colouring, perming and styling, hair can become weak and damaged. A hair weave can help protect your natural hair. Binding it into the braids means it takes all the abuse of styling tools and products. Some women even find that when their hair is damaged to the point of breaking, a weave can help them gain some of their hair strength back.
