Humans have used weaves and additions for centuries. However, in the past five decades, the cosmetic industry has taken an interest in hair manufacturing techniques to create additions that look and feel more natural. The introduction of human hairpieces, toupees, and additions have further simplified hair care. Currently, you can use the hair weaves to create a flawless, neat, and natural look while giving your natural hair a rest from the heat, chemicals, and stressful styles and techniques.
The key factor to consider when choosing a hair weaving style is whether it will protect your natural hair, especially the hairline. Here are three hair weaving styles a salon will offer.
The Sewed Style
Installing a sewed-in hair addition is a three-step process. First, the hairstylist cleans your head and hair-dries it. Secondly, they braid your hair into rows, and very close to the scalp. Thirdly, they use thread and needle to attach the artificial hair onto the braids. The process can take several hours, depending on the style and speed of the hairdresser.
The benefits of sew-in weaves include being easy to maintain, and you can even swim with the hair without damaging the bond between the artificial hair and the skin. You can also wear the hair weave for two to three months. Moreover, sewed weaves are also easy to wash and style.
The Fusion Style
The second popular weaving style is the fusion hairpiece. It involves attaching the hair additions to every individual hair strand. The process is delicate and needs a very talented hairdresser to accomplish. Once the installation is complete, it can last for as long as six months. The best thing about the fusion hair weave is that it feels and appears completely natural. You can style yours any way you want, and it will still look naturally neat.
The Drawstring Style
The regular hairpieces demand that you attach the weave directly to the head, but the drawstring weave is different. It is an easy and pleasant way to create the illusion of length and volume to your hair. The hairdresser starts by combing your hair into a ponytail. They might use hair gels to make sure your natural hair lies tidily on the head. After that, they attach the drawstring weave to the bun, creating the desired look. You can attach and remove the drawstring weave any time you need it.
If you want to have a beautiful hair weave on your head, find a hairdresser who knows more about hair weaves and their styles. With their help, you will never have a bad hair day.
