Weaves have always been a popular application method so let's look at the different types in more detail.

Braided Weave

One of the oldest methods of application is the braided weave.

This method is performed by braiding very small sections of hair in a horizontal direction. Usually, 5 or 6 braids are formed for a full head installation. These braids are called 'tracks'.

Weft hair (hair on a long strip) is then cut to size and sewn onto the braided track using a high-quality thread.

The tracks grow with the hair and last until you have them removed which should be no longer than 3 months.

This method can often be quite painful due to the braids being pulled in an unnatural direction
