There might be times when you want your hair to look longer or thicker. One way to achieve the desired hair look is through the weave. People with weaves are careful with how they style their hair because some hairstyles make the extension noticeable, and you don’t want that.

What is a hair weave?

Hair weave is one of the different methods of hair extension. The natural hair will be braided tightly then the hair extension is sewn chiefly into it. Most people use a wig cap and hair glue instead when doing it by themselves, which requires practice and caution. If you want a more secure weave, it is better to sew it. 

Many women have their hair weaved to achieve their desired texture or look while still looking natural. The standard hair weave they use is the half up, half down wig. This way covers half of the head, from the center down, and leaves their natural hair in front for styling. This method adds volume and length to the back of their head. 

You may go to your local salons to get your half up, half down hair weave. They already have the proper equipment needed for this hair extension method and the appropriate training. But if you will be doing the hair weaving by yourself, this guide will help you.
