How to braid hair when sewing in an attractive, natural-looking hair weave?
Do not braid the portion of the hair.
If you wish to wear weave in a ponytail, you can leave out 1-inch of the entire perimeter of the hair. Leave out at least 3 or 4-inches of the bangs in front. Or, you can braid all of the hair but you won’t be able to brush it back off your face. Or, leave out only the front of the hair where the bangs are.
Cut off the hair part that will not be braided.
If you will leave out the entire perimeter of the hair or if the hair is short, make sure there are a few small clips on your hand, making weaving easier by preventing the braids from accidentally catching some of the hair that should be discarded.
If the entire perimeter is left out, you should start at the front left or right corner of the hair, right behind the bangs. Make the first part to make the front braid will run as close to the front section of hair as possible. If you are ready to comb it over the sewn-in hair, please keep this braid close to that part of the hair will keep the tracks from showing. Use a serpentine or zigzag fashion to continue this braid, going from left to right and working your way down to the hair closest to the nape of the neck.
You can start the braiding just over the left or right eyebrow if all of the hair is being braided. It is recommended to work around the front of the head and all the way around the head working towards the crown.
Lay the braid flat against the part of the braid closest to it to secure its end. Sew the hair into the braid. Then, make a knot at the end of the thread. Finally, cut off the loose end of the thread behind the knot.
- Before braiding, you should wash and dry hair, and avoid using any products.
- Give yourself the time you need to braid hair.
- The braids near the edges of the hair cannot be too tight.
