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



LA/Celeb Weave


The L.A weave is one of the newest methods of application available.

Micro rings are used to form the track instead of a braid.

Again, 5 or 6 rows are usually needed for a full head installation

Small sections of hair are pulled through a micro ring and the ring is then clamped shut. This is repeated until a horizontal row of micro rings has been added to the natural hair.

Then, just as in the braided weave application, the weft hair is sewn onto the micro ring track.

This method will also last until it is removed, which again, should be no longer than 3 months.



Micro Weave

The micro weave is also a new method of weaving.

This method is performed using micro rings but no thread.

Again, 5 or 6 rows are needed for a full head installation.

Small sections of the natural hair and the weft hair are pulled through micro rings and clamped shut. This is repeated in a horizontal manner until the row is complete.

This method will last until it is removed which should be no longer than 3 months
