'Weave' got you covered!

This month ‘weave’ become obsessed with weaves. It's our service of the month and we are here to tell you the different types of weaves on offer, the benefits of having a weave and how you can keep your weave looking fresher for longer. Weaves are great for the colder months as they can protect our hair against drying out in the colder temperatures and the use of heaters and radiators in our homes, they also allow us to switch up our style on a budget.

What is a weave?

A weave is the process of adding synthetic or natural human hair to your hair for added volume or length or a change of colour. Synthetic or human hair can be added by attaching the extensions to the client’s hair. It's one of the least expensive options for getting beautiful long locks. Once installed a well-maintained weave can last for 3-4 months.

What are the different types of weave on offer?

Closure Weave

A human hair closure is a hairpiece that is usually used on top of a weave to close the hair bundle to give you a natural hairline. They are usually purchased separately or bundled together and sold with your weave bundles. They are anchored down in place using thread, clips, glue, or even double-sided tape to complete your weave installation. They provide a wide range of styling opportunities ranging from parts to up-dos. Great for all hair types.

LA Weave

The L.A. Weave is a style of hair extension that uses microbeads, hair wefts and a thread and needle to apply. It is one of the kindest forms of hair extensions available on the market, it is very natural looking and comfortable for the client. Works best with straighter hair.

Full Head and Half head Weave

In this process, the area where volume or length is needed is braided down and the wefts are sewn to the braided hair. For a full weave, this is teamed with some natural leave out or a closure. For a half head, only half of the head is braided and extensions are added.

How can I maintain my weave?

Here are our top ten tips for looking after your hair and your weave so that it lasts as long as possible and causes minimal damage to your hair.

1. Shampoo At Least Bi-Weekly, If Not Weekly.

2. Condition Your Hair.

3. Thoroughly Dry Your Hair After Washing.

4. Sleep With a Satin Scarf and/or Pillow.
