Sew in a weave with slide bangs not only can change hair length as well as hair style but also can protective hair styles. However, to create a great sew-in weave with side bangs, you have to braid hair at first. Now, you might be wondering: how to braid hair?
- Wash and condition your hair as usual with your regular shampoo and conditioner. Towel-dry your hair or blow dry it. Comb hair thoroughly.
- Separate approximately 1 inch of hair’s parts not included in the sew-in weave around the perimeter of your head. Once you style it, portion off your hair that covers up the sew-in weave. Then, wear side bangs.
- Use a bobby pin or hair clip to pin down the separated sections of your hair. To make the process easier, you can put temporary braids in the separated sections. Take the temporary braids down after sewing in the weave.
- Use a comb to part your hair in the direction you want your braids, starting right after the bangs.
- Separate one section of your hair to braid. Then, pin down the rest.
- Take hair’s first section to braid and separate it into three strands. Cross the far-right strand over the middle strand to make a stitch and sew the far-left strand over the middle strand. Keep this process until you reach your hair’s end. It is recommended to pick up new strands of hair as you go long.
- Braid the cornrows close to the scalp, forming a tight braid that stays in place. Continue this process until you braid all of your desired hair. Use a comb to part hair to section off another portion of your hair.
- Remove the ends of all of your cornrows and braid them horizontally, laying hair down properly once you sew in the weave. Now, sew the weave extensions to your hair.
- Use a mirror to help guide your movements when braiding hair in the back.
- Don’t braid hair too tight, for it can lead to hair breakage.
