Weaves Are Sewn Into BraidsA weave is a type of hair extension. It uses braiding and fixes the hair into place with a needle and thread. Other types of extensions attach the hair strand by strand, but a weave sews wefts of human or artificial hair into a person’s real braids. The hair can then be colored, textured, or styled, with weaves intended to last up to two months.
Hair Weaves Require BraidingWith a weave, the new hair is braided into place. This can be time-consuming and pricier than other extension options. Regardless of which type of extension you pick, you’ll have to continue maintaining the condition of your natural hair. If you have a particular style you want to achieve or plan on changing your hair color, ask your Orlando stylist which kind of extension will work best.
Hair Extensions Use a Needle and Thread, Glue, or TapeThough the sewing method is a type of extension, you have other options for affixing hair as well. The hair may also be glued, taped, or attached using another type of adhesive.
