"SLAY a Different Hair Weave Technique and  Upgrade your Whole Look"!

An upgrade to a different hair weave technique can change your overall appearance in many ways.

From personal experience, I know my biggest concern is knowing my options in terms of install methods, the duration of the hairstyle, and how much of my own hair is left out.

From sewing, bonding, or even crocheting, hair weaving techniques can take many forms. So without further ab due I’d like to share the features and benefits to all of the following installation methods starting from the most basic method to the cream of the crop high end techniques.


Bonding (Gluing) Technique

Bonding is  the classic way of installing weave, and is now one of the most cost efficient of them all when you can’t afford the more expensive installs.The duration of this method will depend on how active of a lifestyle you live.  I have never had this technique last longer than two weeks. Of course duration will vary on an individual basis. Some of us have naturally oily scalps which will really shorten the time including other factors such as where you live, and how physically active you are at a gym.

Versatility of this style is very limited with a styling time of approximately 1 hour to hour in a half. 

This weaving method can take the form of a

  • 27 piece weave
  • Invisible parts 
  • quick weaves

Vixen Sew In

The poplar vixen sew in is similar to the traditional method of sewing but more upscale. Your natural hair is braided down into a creative braid pattern. The tracks are sewn onto the braids with a needle and special thread made for weaving only.

Vixen Sew in technique

The duration of sewing tracks depends on the individual growth of one’s hair. Typically 1-2 months is good for a “sew in”.

This method requires your hair to be left out, and  can be created using two  styling methods such as... 

  •  4 way 
  •  3 way 

Four way allows you to part your hair in four sections whereas the three way vixen sew in allow you to part your hair into three sections. 

In my experience the four way method requires more of your hair to be left out. 

You may want to consult an experienced stylists who has done many of these. Judging the right amount of hair to be left out can be tricky. 

Styling time can take anywhere from 1-3 hours. To learn more about this different hair weave technique and how to select hair that blends click here.

Lace Frontal/Wig Application

Stocking Cap Technique 

Okay ladies. This is by far my favorite of them all right now. I stumbled across this style a while ago on my journey to finding a different hair weave technique that will look more upscale. I have been rocking this for several months and and I swear it is the most natural look ever. There is absolutely no receding hairline, the wig does not shift back. It even looks good up close, therefore you can only imagine what it will look like in pictures. 

If you are one of the ladies that is into plucking and bleaching will make this style perfect. There is absolutely no hair left out with this weaving technique making it a great protective style.
